How hard and "real" are the questions of Kaplan? [#permalink] New post 04 Feb 2011, 13:14
Hi,

I have completed the OGs (11th and 12th), but in my opinion they are easier than the GMAT Prep. So, I need additional questions.

I'm thinking in using a Kaplan course. How difficult are their questions? How "real" are they in comparison with the GMAT Prep and the real exam? (Specially, in SC and CR).

Thanks for your advice.

Yes, I used it. I think that GMATPrep is harder. :?
I need complex and harder questions in the verbal section.

I can't stand the OG 12th edition. The questions are insanely easy compared to the real gmat. I really don't think that book (when used exclusively) will get you anything higher than a 600.

You are right, my friend.
OGs give us only a glimpse about the GMAT.
We need harder questions.

You've gotta go with the Manhattan GMAT stuff imo, thought I haven't looked at any other books closely. I am incredibly impressed with the MGMAT guides, they are well thought out, organized, and they teach you the theory behind the most difficult questions rather than cookbooking a recipe that will only work for some problems. They have helped me immensely in the past month or so with my studying.
