The point, again, is that you're new to the exam, and you therefore don't understand it that well -- whatever you got on it.  That's nothing to be ashamed of.  It does mean however, that your understanding is limited, and the helpfulness of your advice will also therefore be limited.  That's all.  Nothing to get your panties in a bunch about. 

I know what works to score 170+ on an actual exam, and that is not some overpriced Kaplan class. In fact, a Kaplan class is counterproductive for many people, because it is time that should be spent with a PowerScore Bible, studying.

See the above posts.  You may know what works for you, you don't know what works for everyone else. In this case, you're not even trying to understand.

New to the exam? I will almost guarantee my score smoked yours. How can I be so sure? Because I smoked 99%+ of LSAT takers. 

Okay, if you're not relatively new to the exam (in terms of fully understanding all its nuances), please feel free to explain how you confused the two charts in question, and thought that a 160 could somehow be as low as 71st percentile? 
 

Why should someone who smoked 99% of LSAT takers know anything about the percentile of a 160   :-\

There's no reason anyone who does well on the exam will necessarily understanding anything at all about the test (including the scoring scale, or best prep techniques) -- that's my point.  Some people, like Robin Singh, simply have a strong aptitude for it, and will do well the first time they see it.

The difference is that people like Robin also eventually studied the exam, and learned how to help people with it.

Yeah I was just joking.  I think he's mostly just messing around with you.

I figured you probably were.

I hope to god he is.   :P

Retake. I screwed up my first LSAT, and got my true score the next time around.

I don't try to persuade. I identify an issue, then apply relevant rules, then apply and finally conclude. Facts are my friends. When facts and rules are properly applied you don't have to persuade. You will learn how to do this in the fall.  :)
