Difficulty of Jeff Sackmann's Challenge Sets [#permalink] New post 29 Oct 2012, 06:53
Hi all

I was wondering what other people thought of the difficulty level of Jeff Sackmann’s Challenge Sets? At the start of each set he gives an indication of every questions difficulty (broadly categorised - e.g. 560-620, 620-720, 720+). Does anyone have an opinion on how accurate these ratings are? I can’t help but to feel that they may be a bit overestimated, but it would be great if others felt that they were pretty accurate (it would mean I’m improving!).

Interested in your thoughts.

B.

Thanks carcass

By more or less similar to the OG, do you mean that the Challenge set is comparable in difficulty to the OG or that Jeff has taken OG questions and ‘tweeked’ the variables to make his own?

How many Q’s are there in the MGMT advanced guide? I found the MGMT questions not very GMAT like. Have they improved in this release?
