Geddon187, I donít getting caught is something to worry about.  If you figure out which is the experimental (without cheating e.g. looking at other peoples tests, secret signals, talking during the break, etcÖ), they arenít going to punish you for not doing it.

His point was that the only reliable methods for determining the experimental section require looking ahead, etc, which involve the risk of getting caught.

His point regarding investigations is also relevant. If LSAC notices a possible irregularity (such as a huge difference between performance on experimental and regular that isn't consistent with other test takers results), and after investigating the irregularity determines that the evidence suggests an irregularity is likely, it will put that on your file. All law schools you apply to will receive a notice from LSAC stating that there was some 'misconduct or irregularity' on your LSAT. Not exactly something you want on your record.
