Congrats!!! WOW!! 6.0 in AWA again lauds about the grip you've developed on Verbal.. I have gone through many posts in last one month or so but your case seems to be the closest of mine. I am also from a 'English non-native language' country so am bad at Verbal but am good at Quant. With my GMAT sc...


Congratulations for a great score.. Good luck with your applications. Any idea was the difficulty level of the GMAT questions in comparable to the later questions of OG 12 Verbal part .. also did you see any idiom usage in the exam OG and GMAT Prep are the closest you can get to the real exam. Latt...


Congrats!! Great score and fantastic post. Very motivating too. I wanted to know what you mean by this: does this mean that doing well on verbal can help increase the score a lot? At that point, I became a member of BTG and went through a lot of blogs/posts online and stumbled upon a most important...


pseudonym- Congratulations!!! . Getting 45 in verbals being a non-native is really an achievement. Few queries: 1.Did you refer to any other practice material for verbal questions other than OG? Do you think OG prepares us with hard questions? 2.Off late I have heard so many people saying that actu...


Thanks a lot! I agree with you, verbal is not as black and white as quanti, but i'd say the best tool to use is process of elimination. works like anything on SC, also is a lot of help on both RC and CR.

My Profile First my profile. I have a CGPA of over 3.75 at undergrad level. Will have abt 3.5 yrs of full time work experie...


Need some suggestions here. Should I rather substitute random values into modulus problems to figure out the solution or break it up into inequalities? Or is it essentially a case by case scenario?

Hey, that was pretty simple! And I sweated my brains out breaking the modulus sign and coming up with all sorts of inequalities. Thanks man!

Not a problem dude, I repeated GMAT prep 1 after 2 wks, only 3-4 of the ques got repeated. In fact I spent too much time on the tough ones that got repeated and got 2 of them wrong. As long as you don't have the answer memorized.

I plan on retaking GMAT Prep 2 after 2 days. Test is this weekend. :)

DS Problem - Totally clueless

If y is >= 0, what is the value of x?
1) Modulus (x-3) >= y
2) Modulus (x-3) <= -y

Answer is apparently B. How come?

Yeah i figured that out too, the bit that confused me was why C is not possible...the question is must reduce the std dev, not which pair reduces it the most? C reduces the std dev, rite?
