Hi guys,
Hope everyone is doing well.
I have two questions. First, I have taken the GMAT once before (in August) - without using the OG. I scored 510. My goal is to score at a minimum 650; Now that I have the OG I think I realize why I scored so low. I'm simply getting alot of the problem solving and DS questions wrong. After question 150 in problem solving OG I have stopped timing myself on each question, because I simply cannot complete the question in <2minutes. I was not good at SC in August, so I have been going through the OG sentence correction while reading over grammer texts - I don't time myself. I think I am improving in SC this way. However, will all this non timing, taking as long as I need approach, to get the question done screw me over on the actual exam, or is it a normal learning technique? Suggestions, reassurance would help alot.

Secondly, for thoughs of you that score in the 600s and above, are the questions in the OG representative of the scoring level. If so, where in the OG text.

Many Thanks.

Most of the PS and DS questions (especially the last 100) are typical of actual GMAT. You do need to time yourself and practice more on the OG questions. Then looking at EACH and every explanation. Spend more time on the explanation than on the question(wher you need to time yourself).
