Is OG10 still valid [#permalink] New post 04 Jun 2011, 06:11
I was going thru some of the best GMAT stories and found that some one mentioned OG10 as a must resource but that person gave GMAT in Oct 2009. I plan to give my GMAT in Sept 2011. I wanted to know from the experts here who have given GMAT recently, do they think going thru OG10 will still help...Little background..I had finished OG12 couple of months ago, right now i am doing GMAT club tests, OG quant and MGMAT books, I was starting thru OG11 today and plan to revisit OG12 in august. By revisit, I mean solving last 40 questions from all sections..

it can't hurt but there is going to be a great deal of overlap...I'm not familiar with an old OG that is "better" than the current. Contrary to what GMAC wants you to believe, each OG is not all that different.

The key point to your success in GMAT is the time you spent practicing it.

The more you do, the more chance you will get a good score!!

Be careful, the OG 10 is very powerful - it has 1,300 questions (compared to 900 in the OG 12).

However, it overlaps with GMAT Prep and PowerPrep and that's an issue if you are planning to take those tests. It is relevant and still does the job (even if the questions are dated).

Final words of caution - don't focus too much on solving the questions but instead spend the time on concepts and strategies....

I also have OG 9 and OG 11 . What about those ? I know OG 11 has almost most of the questions repeated in OG 12. Also, is there a overlap between Verbal and Quant Review 1st and 2nd Edition

Yes, there is a 60% overlap between verbal and math OG's as far as I remember (but this is not a very common question and I may not remember correctly)
