This topic is locked. If you want to discuss this question please re-post it in the respective forum.

I remember five of many toughest questions I faced on the real deal and I am concerned if I can post the questions here whether it would be a breach of security and stuff? Moderators can suggest me or otherwise, I can release those questions among other tough questions from other practise sets and you wouldn't know what levels of difficult questions is GMAT really testing these days.

Do not ever release real, active GMAT questions, even if you cannot remember the question verbatim.

I might as well reveal the tested component (word problem - principal and interest/ mixtures/ work rates etc kinds) what say?? _________________ I am AWESOME and it's gonna be LEGENDARY!!!

It also doesn't really help those that take the test after you. There is such a large question pool from which the questions are pulled that it really is a small % chance that the same exact question will come up. Now I do understand that the larger pool you disclose it to, then there is almost a certainty that at least one person will see the same question you did, but do not risk getting your score cancelled. Also, GMATCLUB does not want to be assocaited with releasing real GMAT questions. If you do post it, the post will be deleted ASAP. _________________ ------------------------------------ J Allen Morris **I'm pretty sure I'm right, but then again, I'm just a guy with his head up his a$$.

OK, I respect the immense help that this forum has offered me all the while during my preparation for my first attempt and am eagerly looking forward for more help and advice for my retake attempt, I will not pose any issue or put this forum into a legal jinx and stuff. But one things for sure that I reveal, GMAT quant has gotten very tough. If you don't see a question that'll choke you in the first fifteen, expect to see more after that. Choke in the sense, a very very advanced geometry/probability concept or no amount of equations can help solve other than guessing large numbers and eliminating answer options. Those who wish to score above 48 do not have any scope for committing even one silly mistake!!!!

I scored between 47 and 49 on GMATPrep questions that are far easier than the real deal. How much ever I try, I always tend to make one or two silly mistakes and never reached the 50 mark. I made a decent 47 on the real deal.

We Indians are forced into math skills even before we learn the alphabets of any language. Trust me, when I say real deal is tougher than OG and GMATPrep, it is really tough, unless you get lucky and as well do not commit any silly mistakes at all.

I don't agree that quant is getting tougher. Many of my students get 49 or 50, scores that I would have expected from similarly-skilled students two years ago
