OG 12th, Last questions difficulty [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2011, 18:26
hey guys,
i heard that the questions on the OG are ordered by difficulty (correct me if i am wrong). Anyways, what level of difficulty (in your experience) are the last 10-20 questions of each section. Are they 700+?

What i wonder is from where do people get hard questions to practice. The Kaplan 800 according to this forum is for 600-700 aimers, not 700+. I do have that book and dont know whether to waste time on it (according to people in here the questions aren't very representative of the ones that we will face on the real GMAT). Since the OG, is the "Official" guide, one would assume they would give a wide range of questions regarding the topics covered as well as the difficulty.

I know that there are some hard questions in the GMAT forums, but where do people get them from? Don't wanna waste time on something that is not representative or real GMAT questions.

Thanks a lot guys,

thanks, really helpful.
All questions are rated into Easy-Medium - Difficult. What do they consider difficult? over 700? or just over 600?

Anyways, it IS ordered by difficulty, so one can assume that last 10 or so questions are in the 700+ level.

I would say that's a fair assumption.

Generally speaking, the last 20-30 questions are 650-750 level (though there is a mix in those as well). If you are doing well on the test, you will probably see quite a few such questions. The Verbal part is perhaps more representative of the real test than Quant. The general student community feedback is that Quant is getting tougher by the day in GMAT. No surprise there since competition is increasing. They have to increase the difficulty level. Remember that OG questions are at least 5 years old. So consider them to be baseline if you are looking at a high score.
