I was wondering if someone could give me the breakdown of which questions are easy, medium, and hard in OG11. Are they broken up by 1/3s?

Generally the further you go into the sections the more difficult the questions. You can't give a generic answer to what's hard and what's easy because some one who scores a 780 might view them all as easy, while a person who scores a 600 might think half are hard.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I was under the impression that GMAC had ranked some of them easy-medium-hard. My goal is to just focus on the easy to medium for now.

Sergy found it for me.

Well, it's a good start. The problem is if you are using the OG 11, questions are arranged in easy(1-100)-medium(100-170)-(170-250)semi hard order.

I am doing OG11 CR now and there is a total of 124 questions. Are they in ascending difficulty?

Thanks

The OG books actually state in the intro section that they have placed the questions in order based on level of difficulty and stress the importance of using their GMATprep tests as your true measurement of success as they are based on a similar CAT format.
But many in the forum suggest you master the easy ones and use those principles in solving the harder ones. DO some searching on this forum, and you'll find the advice. Search kidderek, I think his name is. I read great pointers from him on how to do quant prep!
Good Luck

I thought you might find the following advice I found in my searching useful!
I know I did! I had to remove the link bc of spamming regs, but search for the bolded subject line to see the original!

PostPosted: Wed Jun 27, 2007 3:25 am Post subject: score 720-(Q49 V40)-My strategies for Busy people Reply with quote
Hi All,
Today I appeared in GMAT and scored 720 (Q49 V40). I am 32 years old working executing and I was hardly able to put 2 hours a day for my preparation.
My experience could be useful for others like me.

I will not say much like many other. If you people find my experience useful, let me know. I will elaborate.

Quant: When I took my first Maths practice question sets I was not able to reach more than 55%. Later I realized it is not because Maths was too tough in GMAT, but because there are traps in questions. They make you you commit errors. So only solution is practice at least 20-30 EASY question each day for few weeks and analyze your errors. Once you are able to do EASY questions fast and correct, you can score 80% quant easily.
1)One Chinese or korean document on Maths practice I downloaded from this forum which raised my actual Maths score to 90%. (See second post of Vivek at the link:

Answers are also avaiable somewhere in the forum. )
2) Probability and Permutation/Combination: 800Score stuff is really good at least for this section.
3)Standard Deviation: Use search option in this forum with key word "Standard Deviation" and solve questions. Normally GMAT asks kind of Standard Deviation questions which can be solved just by looking at it after some practice.

Verbal: English was my big weakness. In my first English practice test I scored more than Maths however unlike Math, despite lot of practice there was not much improvement in score. Note that It takes long time to develop knowledge of language. Here I adopted several processes to compensate for for my weakness. Like process of elimination for SC Just by looking at it , understanding CR on the line of explanations provided by OG, and figuring context (Reading first few lines and starting lines of last paragraph) of RC before reading it fully. I can explain these techniques more if someone is interested.

Recommended book: OG latest edition.
Best approach for busy/working people. Give 2 hours per day (and more on weekends). Do few questions each day. Analyse results whether you do it right or wrong and try to remember explanations given in OG.
