In which order should I go through the different OGs? Sun Apr 08, 2012 2:54 pm
Hey Guys,

i just started to go through the 0G12 questions and i also want to do the OG Verbal Review / Quant. Review Questions.

I wonder whether it is better to do all the OG12-Questions first, and then go on with Verbal and Quant. Review or whether i should switch between the different books and - for instance - do the first 50 Proplem of each category in OG12 and then the first 50 Problems in the Verbal/Quant. Review in order to maintain a steady difficulty level?

What would you recommend?
(I hope i was able to express myself clearly - i'm not a native speaker.)

Best way to use OG/VR is practicing the questions topic wise. At the end of each chapter in MGMAT SC guide there is a reference to OG/VR questions which are based on that topic.

Refer to my blog on how to prepare for SC. Use the same methodology for practicing for CR too. U will see the difference yourself.

Below is a section from my blog.

Methodology:

For Friends who have just started with SC preparation:

If you are in the initial stages of SC preparation, then learning and practicing topic-wise is the best way to start, just as mastering the individual nuances of swimming or any other game.

Step 2: Attempt the OG questions given at the end of each chapter. While attempting the question, try to find out the correct answer option by using the concepts you learnt in that chapter. Try to avoid using your knowledge from previous chapters. What I’m asking you to do is “TO HIT THE BULL’s EYE”. Don’t worry if you get a few wrong. Don’t read detailed solution given in OG right now. There is a reason behind this advice. If you have Verbal review book attempt those questions too.

Step 3: Follow the above two steps till chapter 10. Then follow the steps mentioned below for test takers who have already been preparing for GMAT for a month or so.
