Experts, need help.
I have:
OG12
OG verbal review 2nd edition
OG Quant review 2nd Edition
Collection of questions from OG 10 and OG 11 as well.

My question is "for more practice questions and to develop GMAT ear, do I really need to get the pack"?
I read the reviews but its a kind of mixed opinion upon the issue; some say that the questions in pack are older than the question in OG12.

Since the earlier questions stressed more on other issue rather than Idioms, so I doubt whether they are going to help me or not.

All suggestions are welcome.

I say why not? Especially if you're wanting more practice tests. It's the closest you can get to the actual GMAT.

I'm using it now. Its worth it.
I really dont know what the "current standard" is, but I found verbal questions to be good (GMAT-esque in general)

See it like this: If you score badly this time, will you buy it for your retake? if yes, I say buy it now.
if its about money: $25 is not a big amount for 400 odd questions. In fact its a good bargain.
if its about time: we all know our time is best utilized when we solve official questions.

Best

Sorry, I'm a little bit late to the conversation, but just in case you have a flash of buyers' remorse: I completely agree with jumsumtak. There's no substitute for official questions, and $25 for 404 questions is actually a pretty good deal, especially compared to, say, GMAT Focus (24 questions for $29.99!).

And compared to the $126,000 you'll spend in tuition when you get into HBS, the Question Pack is really, really cheap. :wink:

I agree with all of the above.
Its a good buy considering you have exhausted your verbal prep.
However after buying please keep the file safe. I formatted my PC and now I cannot get it back, so I will probably have to buy it again.

once you purchase this question pack can we use it for indefinite time period or is there a limited time period?

I'm pretty sure that the GMATPrep Question Pack is yours indefinitely. When it was first released earlier this year, the questions would disappear and then reappear for no particular reason, but they seem to have fixed that glitch.
