Studying for the LSAT / Re: June LSAT Epilogue

Oh God, that groupthink thing. I was trying to make it to the end and the groupthink thing just killed me.

I also think the cakewalking was the real one. I was pleased to see a passage on that since I've read/studied it before but that passage ate up loads of my time.

I would cancel. It sounds like you're going to re-write in October anyway. If you're going to re-write, why have a subpar score on your report?

are you sure they were just testing the experimental on another exam? I was under the impression the experimental didn't function as a whole section that would be replicated but rather certain question types....though obviously my understanding could be horribly wrong....

I thought the easier RC was the experimental for a variety of reasons. One, it seemed quite easy. Second, I haven't seen a Passage A/Passage B where the passages took such opposing views and finally, the passage breakdown of one of them had loads of tiny paragraphs which I hadn't seen before, though of course, I haven't done a load of practice tests so these points might be off. I really hope the dancing/cohesiveness RC was the experimental though since I also had to guess on the final 3 questions and I felt better about the other RC passage. I don't recall having several A's in a row, though that doesn't mean much since we might have had different section. I did have five B's in a row though at one point. I listened to Jeffort's advice and left it because he said this was pretty typical so....

hmm JMS glad to hear I"m not the only one. My first RC section was good but all of a sudden on the last passage I was like eek! I had to bubble in 3 guesses for the last answers. Sometimes this does happen to me, so it's not completely random, but the last passage felt a bit long to me. ah well.

Pretty sure I could tell which section was the experimental, which sucks, because I rocked that section whereas it's real time equivalent, I did not so hot on. Oddly enough, finished all my LR on time, with time to spare which normally isn't the case, thought the first three games were quite easy, the last one caught me up a bit and then couldn't tell whether I had a minute or two to spare, so bubbled in guesses for the last 3 answers, but ended up having enough time to go over each quickly and rebubbled in what in a short amount of time I believed was the correct answer. Hopefully that works for me.

Though as someone suggested here, I asked my proctor at the beginning if she would give us enough time between sections to reset our watches and she was like no, all the time you have is for me to say my spiel. I mean it was enough time but I was like, it's not that big of a deal. Or you could have said 'you will have enough time during my spiel'. Whatever. Though my watch (because it was a $20 I got at the mall) got stuck on my last LR section! thankfully I noticed it quite early on and was able to set it pretty accurately to the correct time.

I read a response on here where someone found the flashcards useful, though I don't really see their purpose. Once you know how to set up the games, it's pretty straightforward and I don't think one really needs that much help in understanding what setup works best. I don't understand why they don't have LR those would be helpful. In fact, I made my own. But personally, once I figured out how to diagram rules properly and the best way to do setups, I was fine. I would suggest get the book, see how that helps you, and if you can't figure out the setups still, then maybe get the flashcards.

yeah I agree. I prefer the book infinitely more to the movie. I know a lot of people think it's an analysis of the Clinton campaign but the further you look, the more it really isn't (this idea was essentially what my paper was about). Klein actually deals with some interesting issues about politics and campaigning.

Well, I'm IN for tomorrow. I was on the verge of shifting to October but after succumbing to peer pressure and scoring my highest to date on my PT today (mid 170s) I'm going to go for it. If I screw up badly on LG, I'll know to cancel since that area is my strength and bombing it would screw over my score. Hopefully it's upwards from here! Good luck to everyone else writing tomorrow! See you on the other side

Enjoy Primary Colors. Just did a paper on it coincidentally enough....
