Question on questions :) [#permalink] New post 07 Jul 2007, 15:49
Hi guys,

Newbie question but since we are here to help each other no question is stupid. So what is the difference between the challenges and the 1000 questions? Where to the questions from both come from? Also, why are there no verbal challenges?

Now I am not great at quant by any means. As a matter of fact it took me 4 months to go from a 22 or so to a 35. Now what would you guys recommend for me to do to get to a 40+ score? I've been studying the OG and can get most of the first 150 questions right (still need work on the later ones). I haven't done all of the OG questions yet but I was wondering where is the best place for me to study to get that 40+ score, the OG, challenges, both? Thanks guys!

P.S. I sense that my fundamentals are a bit week so I've been brushing up on that as well. How embarrasing for a 24 y/o to learn for the first time about special triangles :)

1000 questions takes from various sources, including PowerPrep, GMATPrep, OG, and more. So, they are quite relevant questions.
GMATClub Challenges are prepared by GMATClub founders & Co. Challenges are unique and harder than actual test.
If you do 1000 questions and Challenges, I would say you can comfortably score 40+ on quant.

Thanks :)

Are the 1000 questions in order of difficulty? Also, are there any geometry questions in the challenges?

don't think there is any need to do the challenges, if you do the 1000.
start with OG 11, then go for OG math/verbal, if you are scoring well, go for kaplan 500, practice with gmat prep and powerprep software.
practicing everyday should be enough.

I might just skip the OG guides alltogether (except for the last 50 questions on each section). I can nail the medium questions but when I take the practice exams I notice they are much harder. So for math I will probably just focus on the 1000 questions and challenges.

If you have time, go through ALL OG questions. The first 100-150 questions are sometimes unrealistically easy, but if you learn a few different types of questions, may be it is worth going through it.
It took me no more than 3 hours to do the first 100-150 questions in OG. I mean, it wont take too much time.
