Whenever I'd open these forums here,I'd see people scoring 750 or 760 on the first attempt itself and I always used to get anxious when I'd reach this score and in fact after the first attempt I never thought that I'd be able to reach this score.B...

@hemant02 Did you use OG Verbal review for practicing verbal questions ? Also what did you use for Math practice ? I find the Math questions in the OG way too easy.

Do you think that the quality of SC questions from GMAT PREP were representative of the quality of questions on the test? I think the SC questions on the actual GMAT were a little trickier than the GMATPREP questions but overall in terms of how representative the GMATPREP questions were, I think th...

There are 100 questions each in the PS and DS Boosters. I found most of the questions in the 600-800 difficulty level so yeah they are more difficult than the OG questions I don't understand why the OG Math questions are so easy..I mean the function of an "official guide" is to give a representativ...

While taking the practice tests, did you always take the full tests or did you use to skip AWA and IR ? What is the use of full length test when you would just skip 2 sections in that ? When I am taking full length test I make sure that I attempt all the four sections in one go-otherwise it doesn't...
