Target Accuracy level [#permalink] New post 16 Jan 2010, 20:53
I started my GMAT preparation almost 2 weeks back. Along with Manhattan SC, I completed OG 10 questions and had an overall accuracy level of 72%.

Could somebody guide me, how much i need to improve in SC to score 42-43 in verbal, assuming CR and RC would have accuracy level of 80-85%?

There is no correlation between strike rate and score.

You need to focus on strike rate combined with problem difficulty.

i.e. Getting 80% the 500 level problems correct will not help you reach 700.

The official guides are typically in ascending difficulty order (hardest problems are toward the end).

Yep, keep in mind that Official Guide has questions arranged in terms of difficulty.

ok.I have just reviewed my answers. I have around 75% accuracy in questions # 150 till 266 in OG 10.

M not sure whether it covers 700 level questions? Can you guide?

probably not, but even if let's say it did - what would it mean? you got 75% of 700-level questions right, so what's your score? 75% of 700? that's 530 :) Exactly....
