hey scthakur
Thanks so much :)
no i did not take MGMAT cat ,i just took Kaplan and GMATpreps

I cannot comment on the difference between MGMAT cats and Real ones :) but yes KAPLAN Vs Real GMAT
REAL GMAT is much more different ,wont say easier but tricky !!!reading once a question will not suffice,need to read twice !!or carefully :)its just maintaining composure and patience will help.
quant is a level above OGs but below whats in forums but yes forum questions will be a grt help

Verbal was a level above OGs but again forum questions help a lots
1000SCs,CRs,RCs help .


Thanks spriya. This will help. I have not yet touched upon 1000 series. I think, this is the time to begin. Thanks and all the very best for the application process.

Congrats Spriaya. You have done a great deal of hard work. I saw several of your posts earlier and you truly deserve it.

What method did you follow on RC? Did you follow GIN technique or Speed reading or both? I am just curious as RC in real test is still a challenge to me while I do it well with GIN otherwise.

I have missed the Power Prep CR bible in your prep material. How good is it?

Excellent score. Very close to your target score 750. Well Done and congratulation spriya.

How do you compare the questions that discussed and the real questions in terms of difficulty? What you find most difficult? What strategy you think should be applied? Thanks for your inputs.

Good luck to your application process.

Thanks guys!!!
Whats this GIN ?can u elaborate!!!
I used to read the first para taking some time and used to understand whats being talked about then used to read rest of the paras understand their relation in context of the passage.Thats it.Then questions seemed quite easy to answer.
power prep bible is worth a read :) it helped me but as u know CR is generally easy since its all logic.Its just this book organises our thought process

Hey thanks a tonne !!
the questions discussed here are very close to real ones .
Real test has tricky question ,the language of the question is quite difficult to get but if read with free mind things are easy.
I had found RCs most difficult during my prep but in the end during practice of OG-11 and final test found them easiest ,may be because i could crack it.

Make SC ur strongest area since it saves time
CR and RC are very similar hence do these with a free mind and patience
Quant needs practice and if stuck in a problem for long MOVE ON.dont spend too much of time.This is important.
I need good luck for apps since im least aware of process there !!!
thanks all bbye

GIN technique is the one RC technique explained in Walker's debrief 8-t66785

RC has been the ultimate challenge in verbal for me till date. In the actual test my struggle against time is primarily because of my issues with RC. If I read thoroughly, I run out of time. If I don't, I struggle to answer the questions. I tried to do take the mid path but that did not work so far.

I can do most of the CRs without any issues, however the ones in actual test I found are little twisted and would demand more time. Under time pressure, I am making mistakes on those as well. I have ordered the CR book from power score to make sure I did not miss anything. Did you practice with any complex sets of CRs?
