Difficulty level OG-quant [#permalink] New post 17 Apr 2010, 08:40
Hi everyone,
I've been studying for the GMAT for some time now, but hadn't used much OG material but took bb's advice and started working on the last 40 questions of each section.
I started out with the OG-Quant but had a lot of trouble dealing with the last 20-30 problems... so i had a bit of a panic attack!
what difficulty level are those last questions? I though they wouldn't be easy but I thought after so much studying (knewton, MGMAT, practice tests etc) I thought they would be alright!
Is it normal to have trouble with those questions if you are aiming for around a 44 in quant???

(tried searching for an answer but didn't find anything, maybe because I'm stressing out so much!)

As far as I know, questions in OG are posted according to their difficulty, ranging from around 500 to 600-650 at the end. I am worried as well, cause I have 4 mistakes after doing 60 PS questions (from 40th to 100th question, OG 12th). But I make notes of all wrong questions.

So, paraphrasing a well-known refrain "don't worry, be happy,.... work hard" :)

The last 20-30 questions in the OG are 700-level.
Keep in mind though that OG Quant is easier than OG 12 (most agree on that). So you are probably fine if you are shooting for Q44, though you can't have a too high of a score, so would recommend you put some time into it and brushing up. MGMAT number properties is a good book to have.

Thanks guys!

I read all 5 of the MGMAT guides, which helped me jumped to 43, but have been stuck at 43 for the last 3 weeks ( and 3 practice tests), can't seem to improve - but haven't started OG-12 yet, but am really not looking forward to it if it is harder than OG-quant... i found the last 30 problems in the PS part pretty challenging, only got about 50% right, very annoying.

And yeah, aiming for highest score possible, and working hard for it but I meant i need at least a 43!

Frustrating day for me today - but hope its just a normal part of the GMAT journey, I look forward to mentioning it in my successful GMAT debrief!

Try to understand "why" it is frustrating and could you have done ANYTHING better next time - we usually cut corners and usually can do something better or be more methodical or take notes, or do more practice etc - recognizing it and going the extra mile will be decided by the score you need.

Good luck on the GMAT and I am looking forward to your shining debrief as well.

To be honest, I suspect there are only around 20-30 hard ones per section.
