That's a pretty impressive goal!

Just want to remind you though that your GMAT practice should always focus around OG. We can't verify the source of the 1000 SC questions, so there's no way to tell whether some questions featured on that doc are misleading/not representative of the real test.

Good luck!

bring them on! 8)
on the forums 8)

i concur beatthegmat here...
if you witnessed the lets beat the GMAT thread {Jan/Feb?March} you ll observe i too had similar plan....

but spending many hours for 1000 problems is not that good idea.... :?
i changed my plan & i ll rather read grammar book :)

i know many people who actually covered all 1000 SC items !
I must say thats incredible. but the result isnt necessarily incredible.
I must have covered more than 500~ items there... but i couldnt make notes... however i posted some solution in the blog i mentioned earlier...

I might add all key answers for the document and ready link for discussion thread... soon.. yeah maybe today itself... :?

Isis,
hmm 300 problems... You have just two days for your exam...or you again post poned it?

I agree. I really wish I bought the OG book earlier (or even before the PR book).

The material in OG just can't compare to materials in PR or other books.

I did all teh OG questio already and i am on my secodn round. In addition, I read the Manhattan Grammar book and did ALL the exercises there. Yes, I postponed my test for next week.

I might not do all the questions after all. I am stronger in verbal so I think I am picking my battles at this point...
