How many DS and PS questions can I expect to see on the test day?(Out of 37 Quant)
All the practice tests have only about 15-16 DS questions on an average.
But while giving the GMAT Practice test 2 I encountered more than half DS.(almost 60% DS)
Can anybody who has appeared in the last few months please shed some light on this. :?

Its essential because we can plan our preparation accordingly.

That's not right. Traditionally you would get around 14-20 DS questions.... but I am not sure that it is super important. On my latest test i got 17 (slightly less than half). I don't think it is that critical. To get a good score you need to answer many hard questions right. If you had 3 fewer DS, I am not sure it is such a big deal.... if you are struggling with DS, figure out a strategy to deal with it. There are a few "DS-specific" questions but most are very similar to the PS.

I agree. i was just as surprised. In the first 15 questions I got 11 DS. Totally threw me off my game.
Will work on DS, it is a weakness.
:-)
Also thank you for your response.

I agree with you - I was surprised as well. I did not pay as much attention to it but i too did have many DS on a row. Perhaps am unofficial tweak to the GMAT. Thanks for spotting!
