Trick to mark answer sheet
« on: August 14, 2004, 10:06:51 AM »
A question to those who have taken LSAT:

I know I have limited time to work on each section. Once that section is over, I can't go back to work on it even if I have extra time left from another section. But my question is, do they allow you to mark your answer sheet (complete the circle) regardless which section you are in?

For example, I am short of time on games. So when I do the game section I don't want to waist my time to finish the answer sheet well, instead, I just make a mark on the answer sheet and complete it later in another section which I may moer time. Has anybody done this before? Is this allowed? Will the proctor care which section answer sheet I am marking?

Thanks

After each game mark the answer sheet, you'll only lose 5-10 seconds per game... its better to get it out of the way then deal with a proctor who was part of the Nazi regime.

They say thats the best strategy for optimal time and it minimizes transcription error...

Yeah, I thought about doing this as well.  But, the problem is that you can't predict which sections you'll have extra time on.  For example, let's say that you always finish with time to spare on the RC sections.  So, you decide to finish the bubbling during that section of the real exam, but the June 2004's exam had 28 RC questions!  My point is that you can never be sure of anything on the LSAT, so bubbling as you go would a safe and reliable strategy.

moogle, you are 100% right.  i would have never done that with rc nor the other one (logical reasoning, maybe?).  i only did it with games.  would do one game on the test booklet, then mark the answers in the bubbles to kind of get my head together and move on.

I bubble each section after I'm done as well.  15-20 seconds per.  I test at 34 minutes to simulate.

How in the hell do you bubble an entire section in 15-20 seconds?

25 questions spread over 4-5 pages?  I call BS.  Time it.
