I don't find it uber easy, but it is not a test to stress over. With some practice and hard work a goo score is easily attainable.

Yeah, imagine the LSAT as like learning a sport. For almost everyone it's really hard to start out with, there are those few freaks that it comes natural to that you're jealous of. But with the right amount of practice (and as my old soccer coach used to say, practice makes permanent so make sure you do it right) you can become very good at it and you're able to anticipate what will come. It's not easy but you can at least walk out onto the field confident that you can handle most of what comes your way.

Let's just say that it gets easier...when I initally started, I would get maybe 8 correct in the games...when I do games now, I get most of them correct.

The same for Reading Comp...I get most of them correct now.

In Logical Reasoning...well, I still get about 1-3 incorrect per LR section...they always find a way to throw a curve-ball. :)

Overall, I end up with about 6 mistakes on the LSAT whereas I started at 30+ incorrect.

It does not get easy...you have to "stay on your toes" when taking the test no matter what.

Yes.

Many more people find it easy than will admit it.

I thought it was easy. I still don't understand references to it being "tricky." I think it requires you to think quickly, but I thought it was straightforward enough. I can understand people needing to get used to it through practice, but I don't understand how it does not become fairly routine after a few practice tests. I know for a lot of people they just have test anxiety in general which I can appreciate would make the LSAT seem brutal because it does move quickly.

I'm glad I didn't have to take the MCAT and re-memorize piles of facts! :)

Exactly how easy are we talking about here? Was it easy for you to score say a 165 or a 175? I'm going for 170 and i would def not describe this pursuit as an easy one. Making a grilled cheese? Now that's easy. Al Green? Hell yeah, he is easy like Sunday Morning. Polo Beach? That's as easy as Al Green eating a grilled cheese on Sunday morning. But figuring out where Hyperion's torso goes if Galaxon's legs are attached to IceAge's torso in a multiple element, undefined, unbalanced, underfunded Logic Game? Not easy for Bork. LMAO. ;D

Games were kinda fun. The rest I found tedious. Do you like crosswords?

Games were definitely my favorite.

I love crosswords.  And Scrabble.

Dio you do cryptic crosswords, or just straight-up US newspaper ones?
