Worst LSAT section? Vote here!

I don't know if this poll has already been done, but I'd just like to see how LSD rates the difficulty of the sections.

I suck at LG, although I am improving slightly. For me at least, I think they are the easiet to improve upon. LR and RC are somewhat easier for me, but they are slightly more difficult to improve upon. :'(

Your thoughts?

In the actual test, games was the only section I got a perfect score in, with over five minutes to spare (review). I only missed one in reading with nearly five minutes left over to correct mistakes. This mirrored my practice tests.

I find reasoning the most time-consuming and error-prone. Almost every question is a new set-up. I could barely finish the sections, and any time checking was swallowed by re-reading (or rather, reading closely for the first time) answers for damn parallel reasoning questions. I made silly mistakes.

For some reason I don't have this problem with reading comprehensive. For me, having only four real set-ups is a lot less draining.

As for games, they're second nature to me. Probably because I used to do logic puzzles for fun.

Since that seems to be the thing y'all do around here.

Wow, impressive! My first practice test, I got 5 out of 25. :) But I definetly know what you mean with LG. They're just so cut and dry, if you can master the setup, you got the answers down. Thats why theyre probably the easiest to improve upon. In my second test, I got 11 out of 25, so there's hope for me! ;D
