Solve OG - Best way [#permalink] New post 30 May 2010, 03:34
Hi Guys,

I have decided finally to touch OG's :lol: . Though I should have started before, but its never too late.
I want to know what is the best way to solve OG.
Should we do 20 questions from each section with time constraints or start with one particular topic such as Sc, Cr, DS?
What about timing the questions? is it more important to solve them without time constraints and note the time or it should be done under time restriction only?

Pls share strategy for solving OG.

I actually asked the same question a few days ago. It'd be great to learn various approaches to solving OG problems.

I don't know of a best way to solve the OG questions, but I decided my own plan to solve the OG questions. I started with 20 questions from PS, DS, CR and SC every day. Gradually though, I also incorporated RC into the group. I would say Build Your Own Plan.

I would suggest that start with 30 questions of each every day( you can decide on how much RC you want). I say 30, because the first 100 questions of the OG are extremely easy. After that, you can come down to 20 because the questions start getting difficult.

Check the file I have attached. I was browsing on this forum and found that document 5 days ago. It is amazing. I guess you need to have the OG 12th Edition though.

Good luck.

Thanks but I m more concerned about the timing constraints.
Should I concentrate more on accuracy or speed for OG

One way to use OG is to use the Quant and Verbal Reviews as practice problems with the MGMAT books and to save OG12 for later.

I've read that some people suggest doing OG12 problems in sets of 37 Quant and 41 Verbal problems to replicate the test-taking experience.

Regarding Accuracy/Speed, I think you should only do OG problems timed. If you need longer than the alloted 2 min./math or 1.75 min./verbal, take the time to accurately complete the problem, but count the problem as "Slow" so you can be sure to take the time to review it once you finish your problem set.
