I had read somewhere that SC now in real GMAT has become more difficult compared to the other two sections. I had just taken a practise GMAT and got 680 (M49, V34) with the majority mistakes in SC.

Can somebody please discuss about how to tackle this kind of SC' now. One more thing, why the difficulty level has changed now? Has anybody felt the same with SC.

Has that happened this month? This year? I would not trust it. SC difficulty really depends on each personal strengths and perceptions. I think it is all about perceptions. There are always reports about Quant or Verbal greatly increasing in difficulty and we get those every month or every few weeks.

SC for me was the easiest as I was (hopefully still am) a grammar buff. Then CR's - they were neat and fun, and absolutely dreadful was the RC.

I would say RC is by far the hardest section for the majority (mostly due to the lack of time).

i have taken the gmat prep today itself and found that SC questions were far more difficult than they were say 3-4 months ago. I felt them really tough and made large number of mistakes in that area.

Has anybody gone through the same experience. If yes, then this thread might get some weightage.

I'm not sure I understand, but lets try. What do you mean "taken the gmat prep today itself and found that SC questions were far more difficult than they were say 3-4 months ago"?

Do you mean you had taken GMAT Prep Test 1 couple of months ago and than took GMAT Prep Test 2 recently and concluded that SC from Test 2 is much more difficult?

If that is the case - don't worry. You are not the first to spot that GMAT Prep 2 has significantly harder SC questions than G prep 1.

Do you mean to say that your GMAT prep got replaced since the 3-4 months ago or there is some logic that would cause GMATPrep SC's to become more difficult?

I don't think there has been any changes to GMATPrep in the past few years.... let me know if I am off.

I am preparing for GMAT from last 6-8 months. I do take the GMAT test on periodic interval. The SC Qs in during Nove-Feb were pretty simple as compared to Qs now. I found the SC Qs difficult in both the tests (1 & 2). I hope i am clear now.
