when i came across the last passage, and saw it was science related... i was relieved at first. the culture passage had some difficult questions, and i figured, the science one would be pretty straightforward... obviously, that wasn't the case. i still remember seeing like 30 seconds left on my timer, and trying to figure out how i was going to answer the last two questions, and just seeing that the last question took up like half the page. very frustrating.

I agree.  The questions themselves were WAY too long.  There wasn't any empty space.  Too overwhelming for my eyes.   :o  I need to see blank space that signals some type of end.  :P

I forgot to start my timer (it was section 1 for me) which threw me off. I must have spent 11minutes on passage 1.

Then I did passage 2, then I rushed through passage 4, then skimmed passage 3 and guessed on all of the questions.

 >:(

I echo your comments on the question stem and answer choice length.

What I thought was the tipping point for the RC passage was the (perceived) high number of MBT, or inference questions and the sheer length of each answer choice.   

I recall thinking this as well when I was guessing on the last passage I did. I recall looking for the global or detail questions to do first and there were only one or two out of 8.

Yeah, the last Science passage got all D's from me.  That tells you my timing on that bullsh*t section.

The last two passages in R.C...wow. Just...wow. I didn't get to that last passage until 5 minutes left in the section. I looked at the sheer length of the answer choices and nearly pissed myself. I felt like I was about to read a manual on how to fully-assemble a Boeing 767 from scratch. I skimmed through the passage, didn't understand much, guessed, and prayed. 'Nuff said.

well, this seems to be a continuation of the general trend that the RC gets tougher and the LG gets easier.

Gets easier? I thought the L.G. was still more difficult than about 8/10 practice full-length LSATs I took. It seems like the L.G. and R.C. both became substantially more challenging than any other LSAT in the last 3 or so years.

yeah, i agree.

i mean this lg is easier compared to those of the 1990s.  but i def. think this lg  and rc were more difficult than the recent tests.
