OG questions [#permalink] New post 14 Sep 2009, 17:41
I am currently working on OG 11 questions. I am aware from reading on this forum that the last third of the questions on any section are 7xx levels. I am keeping a track of how many (of last 1/3rd) I am getting wrong through the various sections and will categorize so that I can identify my weak areas.

Thinking ahead, following question come to my mind:
How do the OG question scores look for people in 7xx clubs (how many incorrect from the last 1/3rd in the various practice sections)

I would say the last 10-20% are 700+ questions, the other 10-20% of the last third are 650+ questions.
And just to set your expectations right, you can't measure your performance with OG because who know how long you took to solve each of the questions and who knows how long I did. I'd recommend that you take practice tests (any) and then compare those scores instead.

You are right. Time is important. I have kept to OG's recommendations (1.5-1.75 for RC & CR and so on). Practice test is my next step.

Are you saying that 7xx scorer gets 10-20% incorrect in the last 1/3rd of OG practice questions? I am just trying to correlate performance in OG with performance in the actual test (assuming that the time limits are observed while solving practice questions).

I think you're divulging too deep into this idea. The key here is to note that as you progress on OG problems, the problems will become more difficult. If you are able to solve the problem is about the same amount of time and with the same consistency from problem 1 to problem 150, then you are doing very well on that topic (verbal or quant or both)

You should use practice tests to gauge your progress. Working against a fixed time table always makes the situation much more difficult.
