I have found that the OG questions are too easy, and that the MGMAT questions are extremely hard. Is the real GMAT somewhere in between? Anyone who has already taken the test could shed some light on this subject.

The best part of OG is the explanation. You can learn those test points or GMAC preferences from the OG explanations. As for the representativeness, GMATprep is the most representative. But I found the math on the real exam to be a little easier than the GMATprep math though.

Official materials are definitely more accurate than MGMAT. Even reps from MGMAT (in the BeattheGMAT.com forum) admit that their RC problems are more verbose and that their math problems are more complicated and require more problem-solving than actual GMAT questions. So rely on official stuff.

Should I start with the hard study materials or easy official materials?

I agree MGMAT questions are time consuming, understanding some of the questions itself takes a long time.
