Sure, good idea. The first question that comes to mind is one that I do with pretty much every person I tutor and it is usually one of the first ones I do in part because it gives me a good sense for how they approach questions and gets to the heart of the issue here (about immediately copying infor...

Agreed that it depends a bit on the question....and agreed that each person needs to find what works for them.....but in general on PS questions I often see people writing things down before they have finished reading the question and that type of approach almost never works for the aforementioned r...

Obviously people will have different opinions on this, but especially in the case of PS questions, I strongly recommend that you DO NOT write information down while you are reading the question for the exact reason that you mention: it usually biases you towards a particular approach and while you a...

MGMAT has the OG Companion, which I would recommend. They don't have one for the OG 2015, but they do have one for the 13th ed (questions numbers are the same so you can use it for the OG 2015 or 13th ed) and you can probably pick up a used one very cheap. They also have the Navigator, which include...

I'd like to second what @BestGMATEliza suggested. I think that on Verbal, having a grid to help you keep track of answer choices that you are eliminating is a really good idea and will help you save time. The last time I took my GMAT I remember that I was being a little OCD and kept going over answe...

Its not online, but my favorite resource for CR in general (and it does break down assumption and strengthen questions separately) is the LSAT Superprep book. There is an introductory section where the writers (LSAT writers) break down that question type (it is the LSAT's version of CR) and it is a ...

And if you focus on the meaning here choice E is the only possible answer because the key is that it is saying that the evidence suggests 2 things: that the elephant is descended from an aquatic animal and that its trunk originally evolved as a kind of snorkel. If you get rid of the "that" in choice...

I would agree that a lot of what GMAC does seems to be a kind of shameless pursuit of profit - the exam probably doesn't need to be as expensive as it is and surely they could provide the diagnostic service for free (heck, it probably facilitates retakes, so they can make their money back there). An...

In terms of the practice tests you should definitely be using the GMATPrep tests from the test maker as others have suggested. The 3rd party practice tests won't necessarily be totally off, but the questions are different and the scoring algorithm will be different, so you really can't read too much...

I would also add that it is much harder for companies to write verbal questions that properly mirror the logic and nuances of the real questions than it is to write Quant questions that do so. So while using 3rd party tests is often necessary, the Quant will tend to be more accurate than the Verbal....
