Does anyone know for sure if the experimental section on the exam is ALWAYS before the 15 min. break?

in the past few exams it has been in sections 1,2, and 3...so i thought that might be a trend on the exam, which if we knew for certain would make things easier i believe

This is why I'm failing the LSAT, seriously.  I thought that you were asking if the experimental section is always RIGHT before the break.  Gotta be more selective with those words...

Here's the deal, if you knew that the experimental section was in the first three sections, as historical analysis of the exams points out, and if you knew that you have an additional LG section, or RC section, in your sections 4 or 5, then i could totally take the time off whenever i see LG or LR in the first three sections and go out to smoke a cig for 35 min....i know i am a slow smoker...but, do you think it's worth to skip a section if you knew your additional one was in sections 4or5 ?

correction, until now the experimental section has always been before the break.  its a huge gamble to take if you assume that will always hold true.  yea, most likely it will, but you cannot be 100% sure and with a test as important as the lsat i think its stupid to take such a risk.

Knowing that one of the first 3 sections is the experimental section still doesn't tell you WHICH one it is...on the "real" LSAT, you are not given the order of the sections beforehand like on the practice tests.

but people are talking about flipping through the test book before the exam starts to quickly note the order.
