I have a question about the Kaplan Premier 2009-2010 book. I completed the book and I am doing "targeted" questions from that book. For example, I did the Sentence Correction test.

I don't know if it is just me, but I found the time to complete this tutorials very stupid. They gave 22 questions and the time allotted was just 15 minutes. What might be the possible reason behind this? I ended up completing only 17 questions.

Also, I don't think there is a way to stop the time on the tutorial.

I have not yet purchased this book and am very much on the fence about buying it. It seems generally highly rated on Amazon and here.

As to you question, I would guess they are trying to get you into fighting trim. If you are training for a long distance race some of your training is speed drills. In the actual race you may not run that fast, but by training at the faster pace, you have made yourself better ready for the pace you will be expected to maintain.

Were the questions easy or hard? You might be able to contact someone at Kaplan and ask this same question. In reference to my first paragraph, are you overall satisfied with the Kaplan Book? Would you buy it again?

It is a good start, but for a fact, I know that in the math section, it is missing permutations and combination. I mean to say, that it does not cover in great detail.

I am done with the Kaplan book, I am currently on the OG 11 and then I will move to OG 12. I am then going to focus on the MGMAT Book, at least for SR and RC.

I have 39 more days. To answer your question about buying it again, yes I would.

Also, you make a good point, I guess they are training me for the long run.
