it is .

I do not wan to scare you but is the truth, nothing more or less.

Even OG problem are not realistic, they do not reflect the actual gmat level of the questions. Verbal yes, but quant not.

Good luck

OG does not give you a true picture of what to expect. GMAT prep questions do. Sometimes people know their concepts well but still find GMAT prep questions hard because they are not used to the format. In the next 4 days, try to do as many GMAT prep questions as you can and as thoroughly as you can. It might make you a little more comfortable with the pattern. A big contributor to your test performance will be your confidence. So if you work your way through a good number of GMAT test prep questions, you will feel more confident.
We generally suggest our students to take it easy in the last 2-3 days but since you tried out GMAT prep test questions just now, you might want to push yourself a little. Needless to say, do not sleep late the night before your test.

Also when referring to GMAT Prep questions is it the PREP software test you are referring to or how?

Also when referring to GMAT Prep questions is it the PREP software test you are referring to or how? Most OG questions are very straight forward. You might get first 4-5 such questions in the beginning but if you answer them correctly, you will see much harder questions later on. The adaptable format of the test makes it much harder than what OG will have you believe. And yes, the GMAT prep questions are the questions of the GMAT prep tests - the ones who download free of cost from mba.com _________________ Karishma Veritas Prep | GMAT Instructor My Blog Get started with Veritas Prep GMAT On Demand for$199

Hi Federite
I scored a 580 :( ...i am retaking the exam on 14th Sep...and now that I am done with the OG (around 3 times) and the Official Quant Review ..I think I can afford to say that these questions are not truly representative of the actual GMAT Quant...Just my opinion but I found the Quant in the official guides much easier than the actual exam/GMATPrep
