Both PS and DS questions are newer and contains relatively hard problems. Here is the pie chart of question types. As I said before I have completed only 70% of the quant problems. I will update these as soon as I am done with the set.

I finished SC and CR tonight. I finished about 70% of PS and DS. Hopefully, I will post the PS and DS by Friday.

Here is a rough analysis of SC and CR. These are by no means complete or accurate. I will revise and post a more accurate analysis.

1. SC questions are very old. I assumed that the question ID reflects the creation time of the question. I found that the SC questions in QPack1 range from 1000 to 3000, whereas the default set contains questions in the 7000 range.

Hi udvranto,

what do you mean by these ranges? I coudn't get it, can you please explain it in a different way?

regards

lamanxa,
Each question in the QPack 1 and the default set (the 90 questions that are available in GMATPrep for free) has an unique 5 digit question number. For example, a SC question ID would look like VSC01783.

The ID VSC01783 says, the question is from
1) Verbal pool - V
2) Sentence Correction sub pool - SC
3) ID number - 01783

Similarly, examples of PS, DS, and CR are QPS05678, QDS04789, and VCR03498, respectively.

Grouped questions have a little different format. A group of reading comprehension questions is numbered from VRC00198-01 to VRC00198-05, in which the -XX part indicates question number related to the passage 00198.

Integrated reasoning questions may come in group as well as in standalone flavors. An Integrated reasoning questions ID starts with an IIR tag.

Interestingly, the IIR IDs are between two to three digits, for example IIR00034, IIR00125, etc. From this fact, I assumed that the question ID reflects the sequence in which it was created. For example, I assumed that question VSC01783 is older that question VSC0345.

As I said before, the SC questions in QPack1 range from 1000 to 3000, whereas the default set contains SC questions in the 7000 range. If my assumption is correct, it can be inferred that the SC questions in QPack 1 are older than the default set. On the other hand, the quant questions appear to be newer.

(All the question numbers used in the post are randomly created by me.)

(I also assumed that the 5-digit ID number has one more part in it. I think the first three digits indicate an exam code and the last two digits represent the question number within the exam. For example, VSC01783 means Verbal - Sentence Correction - Exam Code 017 - Question 83 and VRC00198-01 means Verbal - Reading Comprehension - Exam Code 001 - Passage 98 - Question 01. However, this assumption is not needed for the inference above.)

@ udvranto:
Thanks a bunch for going thru the Pack1 and working on this review!
One suggestion for your graphs: could you add the % and number of questions for each categories?
I would be happy to help out with any data/ excel/ graph/ tables formatting or even data entry if needed.
Greg

Hi all,

I just found an overlap between the "new" question pack and the OG Quant, 1st edition.

The question id number in the question pack is QPS14006. This is the exact same question as PS question number 131 in OG Quant (1st ed.), page 79.

I am not sure how much more overlap there is, but I feel a bit cheated. GMAC did not mention this anywhere on their website.

I bought the question pack because I thought it would contain NEW additional questions that are not part of any other GMAC publication.

It would be interesting to find out how much overlap there really is. Maybe Manhattan GMAT could do this kind of analysis - similarly to the comparison between OG12 and OG13.

Anyways, won't complain too much about this - after all, the software kind of allows you to practice more efficiently.

Edit: Not sure if this question really is part of the additional question pack - or part of the free questions that come with the software - could someone please verify?

Maybe my rant was inappropriate after all

Question Pack 1 contains 404 questions and answer explanations that are unique to GMATPrep® - they are not available in any other GMAT® exam product.
