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:
Seriously - just practice. Then practice some more. And practice more. No offense intended, but the time you spend on this forum could largely be better spent practicing questions. Don't overfocus on difficult questions like those in the math and verbal forums. Work your way up - when you can nail down 20 out of 20 easy questions, move on to medium. When you can get 20 out of 20 medium questions right, move on to hard. But you won't learn hard questions like Kaplan if you're still struggling with medium ones. Almost all of the "hard" GMAT questions I've seen so far can be broken down into easy parts. Time is your worst enemy - practice with time constraints a lot.
ONE BASIC QUESTION ABOUT THIS FORUM? [#permalink]

I keep on seeing that people mention about a database of DS questions or PS question. Are these questions in certain defined format or are these the same question appearing in MATH Questions and Intellectual discussions.
If so how does one segregate them into easy, medium and hard questions?
Hey Curly, I hate to be the only person stupid enough to actually put thought into answering that gem of a question you just asked. However, I just downloaded something from the ETS website that has been fairly helpful to me. They sell old versions of written tests at their official web site. I just paid about 15 dollars for a ten year old test. I figured it would be a good way for me to accurately gauge my score since I remember too many of the OG questions to take my PP score seriously. They have scoring information attached. It will not be completely accurate since percentile rankings are compared with a different pool of test-takers (ones ten years older than yourself), but it might be helpful in preparing you to answer real test questions. Now get some sleep.
