OG diagnostics

Post Fri Sep 14, 2007 8:14 pm
Is it just me or was the quant section of the diagnositics test in the OG 11th edition a little on the BRUTAL side. The questions in the diagnostics seemed harder than even the last 100 questions of the word problem section. Any thoughts from anyone?

agree 100%. My math is pretty decent and this shocked the hell out of me. Glad to hear as I thought it was probably me losing my touch.

Yeah, it's definitely brutal. There are a handful of questions in the diag, especially on PS, that are:

a) tougher than almost any other question in the book, and
b) not at all representative of common question types.

I tell my students not to bother with the diag at all until after they have done everything else in the book. Not a high priority. I think it's in there to scare you into buying the book if you're browsing in a store. (And I'll bet it works!)
