GMAT Prep CR collection is tough! [#permalink] New post 21 Aug 2012, 19:38
Holy cow. I downloaded the pdf file of the GMAT prep CR collection that is available on this forum and did the first 20 questions under timed conditions. I'm pretty solid at CR or so I thought. I ended up missing 9 out of 20, and now I'm freaking out! My test date is october 9th, and i'm aiming for 99th percentile verbal.

Are these questions accurate of the actual GMAT CR, or are they on the upper end of difficulty?

Hi Arbitrageur,

I can't comment specifically on the GMAT prep CR set, but ANY set of CR problems won't be test-like; it isn't adaptive, so it's unlikely to accurately reflect your test-day performance.

Use question sets like the one you've used to diagnose particular problems--in those nine you missed, did you make a different mistake each time, or were you repeating errors you can fix? But if you're looking for a measure of test-day performance, you need to take computer adaptive tests, such as the GMATprep tests downloadable from www.mba.com or a free Kaplan test (we're having one Saturday!)

Good luck, and let me know what else I can do to help prepare for Test Day!
