Just a quick thought and to see if anyone else had the same feelings.
Been doing the practice gmat with Kaplan
and have found the questions to be alot harder than those that are given in the GMAT Prep and GMAT Review books.
Does anyone else find this or am I just weird?
I also find MGMAT quantitative a tad more difficult than OG.
At the end of the day, your attitude could go in any of the two opposite directions:
(1) You could interpret it as a challenge, to become better. So what if Kaplan
's and MGMAT's exams are harder? You want to be great right? Solve them.
(2) You could speculate and convince yourself that the Kaplan
's and MGMAT's exams are indeed harder than the actual exam. And then? In a way you're just trying to make excuses not to attempt 700+ level questions.
The key takeaway here is that one should just solidify the fundamentals. Everything else will follow.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
