Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Now that Grockit has been around for fairly good length of time, does anybody want to chime in here?
I got the Grockit membership to give it a shot. I tried their diagnostics and then did some targeted practice for some CR question. The questions seem pretty close to OG style, BUT I want to hear from others. I don't want to waste time on it, if the general consensus is against it. I am hoping to use it to fine tune my weakness in next 2 weeks, as I found the ability to customize the games pretty cool - moreover, it's CAT. Overall, Grockit looks pretty decent, again I want to hear from others.
If you have used it, please share your opinion - Is it good, bad or okay? Any thing else you want to share (whine or praise) about this? Who should use it, and why and how one should use it? Any quirks or tips while using it?
If you have the OG, I would steer clear of Grockit as in many questions all they do is change slight details of a question from the OG and repost it. This will not help you improve and may give you a false sense of confidence as all you will be doing is repeating questions. Besides this expect a lot of repeats, when going through questions. Although the interactivity of the platform is nice, it tries to mask too many flaws. It has potential but not enough original gmat like questions. I would save your money.
Hope this helps _________________

How are you performing on RC when you take FULL-LENGTH CATs? While it's certainly important to get in the necessary practice reps with proper materials, you still have to handle RC under a very specific set of circumstances on Test Day - and the best way to assess your overall skills is to define how you're performing under realistic, test-like conditions. It's also possible that you don't necessarily need 'lots' of RC practice; you might actually need to adjust your RC Tactics.
Hi Rich 1) Have been studying for 2 months now- In fact i have been studying for gmat for 3 years now ( off course in bits and pieces ) . However, never really got time from work to keep the momentum required for giving the gmat. However , this time i intend to lock everything down and give the gmat in the first week of may. I am done studying the concepts in quant and verbal. 2) I have been giving tests on magoosh - so their score is not really accurate as they convert your accuracy into the relevant percentile and give a score . 3) However , what i do know is that my accuracy in quant is about 70% - if i reduce the silly mistakes can bring it up to 80% ( about 30/37 right questions) . Verbal accuracy is kinda stagnant for quite sometime -i get about 25/41 right in verbal. SC has a constant accuracy - 75% CR-65-70% . What bogs me down is RC. My aim is to get 30 right answers/41 in verbal. I think if i manage that i can easily reach a V40+. 4) My target score is 720+. 5) Materials used - egmat for SC +CR + RC ( though haven't stuck to their RC strategy) + Magoosh for verbal practice and studying quant.
Have you taken any FULL-LENGTH CATs (with the Essay and IR sections) during your studies? If you have, then can you list them out - including the overall score and Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each CAT.
