June 2017 LSAT Review
The June 2017 LSAT is over. If you’ve spent the last several months preparing for the exam, you can breath a sigh of relief! If you plan on taking the LSAT in the near future, you probably want to know how this one went. Here is my June 2017 LSAT review, from my perspective as a second-time taker. (Yes, I am a glutton for punishment!)
June 2017 LSAT Review
1. June 2017 LSAT Review: Logical Reasoning
The Logical Reasoning section does not change much from administration to administration. This LSAT was no exception. There were no new, left-field questions. My experimental section was also Logical Reasoning. Even so, I don’t remember anything especially noteworthy. If you use PrepTests to prepare for the LSAT, the questions tested on Monday would seem very familiar to you.
2. June 2017 LSAT Review: Reading Comprehension
Much like the Logical Reasoning section, the Reading Comprehension section has not changed much in the recent past. The selection about thought processes was more difficult the average in my opinion. Overall, though, I thought the passages were fairly straight-forward, and manageable in the allotted time.
3. June 2017 LSAT Review: Logical Games
This is where the true curveball was thrown…in that there was no curveball! As I predicted prior to the exam, I thought there would be a linear/sequencing game, a grouping game, a hybrid grouping or advanced linear game, and a transpositional game. I was right on three of the four counts. However, I was shocked by the fact that, instead of a transpositional game, LSAC decided to give 2 linear games! The game about playground equipment was very straightforward, as was the other one (I cannot remember the theme for the life of me, but it involved several rotating blocks)!
The advanced linear game (essays and themes for 5 publications) was also very straightforward. It was similar to the recorded/not recorded game from PrepTest 78. The grouping game (cities visited by executives) was very similar to several grouping games given previously. Overall, the games selection was kind, as none of the games approached the difficulty of, say, the computer virus game from September 2016 (PrepTest 79). If you took this LSAT as opposed to another one, count yourself lucky! I’m convinced that transpositional games will be back semi-regularly in the future. They just did not appear on this exam.
June 2017 LSAT Review: Overall Impression
While the LSAT is a difficult test, this version of it was fairly kind. There was no part that stood out as exceptionally difficult. We’ll see in the next few weeks, after the scores come out, exactly how the Logic Games section might affect the curve.
