What letter will you choose?
« on: December 02, 2008, 08:19:27 PM »
What letter will you all choose to fill in when, either you don't know an answer, or run out of time.  It's between 'B' and 'D' for me. I know people say to pick 'C', but I've never been a 'C' type of guy.

Testmasters has a breakdown of what letters have been picked on every LSAT - they are all about 20%, but if I recall correctly, taking every LSAT into account, D shows up about 21% of the time. So go with D....

General guessing strategy says go with "D", with 2 exceptions:

The last 5 questions on Logic Games, your guess should be "A".
The last 5 questions on Logical Reasoning, your guess should be "E".

Otherwise, always go with "D"

See: What is the best LSAT guessing strategy? for statistics regarding guessing strategy, and for more details.

I agree with the above post. I have found on practice tests that particularly, 'E' shows up the most on the last 4 or 5 questions on the logical reasoning. Thanks for the tip!
Cheers.
