Similarity beteeen the real test and the OG [#permalink] New post 19 Dec 2004, 16:41

I am new to this forum and will be taking my GMAT next week.

I would like to know from people who have taken the test whether there is an overlap between the questions in the OG and the real test. If so, are all the questions in the real test taken from the OG?/ What percentage of questions are from the OG?

Thank you,

OG is comprised of questions that have been "retired" by ETS. Therefore, you won't see any of them on the real test.

From what I've read here, the quantitative section is much harder on the real test, and the verbal section is about on par with the level you see in OG.

I agree with questor. The problems on the actual test are much harder than the OG especially in the Quant section. As for verbal the level is similar to the OG.

Some similarity as far as the easy questions go. You might see some similar problems in Quant towards the end of the test.

Verbal might be closer to the real thing, but I would not rely solely on the OG for verbal.
