Difficult LSATs
« on: June 14, 2008, 12:42:36 AM »
Does anyone know any recent (2000+) that were found to be  difficult overall? I know the calculations make it so that they balance out with the other years, but I figure I go give it a try and see if anyone knows of any difficult ones. I'm trying to find one to take as practice tomorrow so that I can better prepare myself for what I can expect, worse case scenario on Monday.

I just got hung up on the games on PT 52. It was the first LG section in a while that gave me any trouble.

I just got my arse served to me by PT 50 (Sept. 2006). Bizarrely enough I did better on the RC than I ever have on any other test (-1) but the LR were killer (for me). the first LR had 26 questions and you're going along, I was pacing fine and then you realize that the remaining 5 - 6 questions are all insanely long and are going to take more time than normal. There were like 2 questions per page by the end! Anyway it caught me by surprise. I did worse on the games than usual (-3) and the last LR section I got partially screwed because when I looked at the number of questions it said 22 (which I recognized was bizarre but thought it was an anomaly), so i was pacing myself according to that and then got near the end and realized Testmasters (got it from my homework book from them) had made a mistake and there were 25. Anyway, I had been scoring 168/169, was hoping to finally break into the 170's but instead got a 163/165

The real testmasters. I did a weekend course and they have 6 obviously real practice lsat's in the back. I was kind of boggled as well since I mean they are photocopied or something, i mean they didn't reformat and type the whole thing out. But I just re-re-checked. It says 22. There are 25.

eta: Oh my, I fished around and found the hardcopy version put out by LSAC, ie Prep Test 49 (sorry I thought it was Sept. 2006 PT 50, but it was PT 49 June 2006 that owned me). It says Section 4 22 Questions. There are 25. eek. Would really hate to think this might happen on the test. The scale doesn't seem to make up for it.

not sure if you saw my edit before you posted, in case not, I checked the LSAC publication (ie the PrepTest 49 booklet). It was listed incorrectly in there. Really hope that was some sort of post-test typo....
