Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Could you please share the GMATPrep SC 180 qns document? Can't seem to find it anywhere in the forum. Does this overlap with the Brutal SC questions?
Shared the documents. Also, the brutal SC questions seem to be a bit of overkill in my opinion. Its better to prepare on standard questions like the GMAT Prep questions for which there are solid and reliable answers given by the MGMAT staff. And there are quite a few tough questions amongst the 190 or so questions in the document. _________________
Good debrief. Lot of useful information. Shared the documents. Also, the brutal SC questions seem to be a bit of overkill in my opinion.

I've gone through the MGMAT SC book a few times and keep revising points from there often. I have finished the verbal OG 12th edition and am half way through the verbal review OG. But I stil make plenty of mistakes when I do qns from the brutal SC and 1000SC qns. Hopefuly the GMATPrep sc doc will give me some more confidence.
Loved your cntrl+A, cntrl+N point .
Thanks for the info and docs.

28 to 31 is pretty good for GMATClub quants. Make sure to revisit the same tests, and see if you are able to better these scores. That will give you sufficient practice. One of the types of questions lacking in the GMATClub tests is the tough word problems. Try searching the gmatclub and mgmat math forums for these.
If possible you could take the MGMAT online tests that come free with purchase of any MGMAT guide. These really help identify weak areas and is good for fine tuning performance during the last 2 weeks. If you're considering whether to buy or not, do the free sample online test and then decide. _________________
@must82 I think in the initial stages I made quite a few mistakes in OG 12. The first 50 questions were very easy, but the last 50 questions I found pretty tough. My accuracy rate during my initial prep for the last 50 questions must have been around 65%. However towards the end of my prep the accuracy rate for the last 50 questions was around 90% or higher. In the remaining OG questions I barely made a mistake. This was across both quant and verbal. This is because towards the end of my prep I started finding the OG 12 questions very easy in comparison to the tougher GMATClub math tests and the tough standard of english in the ManhattanGMAT online tests.
