Can you spot the experimental section?

Can you spot the experimental section?

Does LSAC make the experimental section stand out at all by making the section particularly difficult or exotic?  Or, conversely, do they make it conspicuous by making the questions rather easy and forgiving?  When you took the test, did you walk away knowing which section was the unscored section?

Whether the section is difficult, easy, or average varies.  They are trying out questions to be used in future tests.  Sometimes the questions may be too easy and never used, others to difficult.  So there is no reliable way to know

I was told in my prep class that any section given in the second half of the test counts.

My experiemental I believe was either my fourth or fifth section.  I had two LR sections to finish the test, only one counted in scoring

The experimental is always one of the first three.
