As always, test forms for the February 2006 LSAT included an experimental (unscored) section. On most test forms, the experimental section appeared in Section 3. Be aware, however, that LSAC often administers a few selected forms with identical scored sections, but with their experimental sections in a different location. Ratings of this administration placed its difficulty on par with or slightly below that of other recent exams. Princeton Review students report being pleased with their overall performance.
Games (Analytical Reasoning) - 22 questions
Princeton Review students rated the difficulty of this section as on par with or easier than Games sections that have appeared on exams within the past year. In the first game, six interns had to be assigned to the floors of a five-story building. Having more than one intern per floor or no interns on a floor was permitted, which made narrowing down the assignments challenging. The second game concerned five types of birds that each visited from one to three sources of water at a park. Each type had to visit one or two water sources, and no source was visited by more than three types. The third game asked test takers to determine which of five highway bills and two mass transit bills were passed by a legislature. In the last game, a family visited six places in one day, two before noon and four after noon. Overall, test takers rated the second and fourth games as easier and the first and third games as harder. Our students found that their familiarity with the games and experience with making deductions helped them set up the games and work the questions efficiently.
