Please don't jeopardize your future by posting, replying to or even looking at live GMAT questions. One such question has been brought to my attention this week, and I saw another today that I distinctly recall getting a few months ago on the GMAT. For recent exam-takers who got your scores the hard way, please help us keep gmatclub free of live questions!

Can people rephrase the questions OR use a similar gmatprep question to discuss solutions? all the test prep materials have rephrased variation of the real questions.

Simply rephrasing a live question (changing the name and the figures) doesn't change its essence. GMATPrep questions are fine, as are OG questions. GMATFocus and live questions are not. Test prep materials do not (should not) have rephrasings of live questions, and gmatclub will not tolerate such rephrasings.

If by rephrasing you mean finding another problem that deals with the same concept, that's different than just putting in different words that mean the same thing. If I get a comb/perm question on a live GMAT that is tough and I want to ask about it, I'm going to go through the OG and find a similar question and ask that question as it is written in the OG, and I won't tell anyone that the source of my curiosity is from a live question. That would be acceptable. I wonder if we should implement a policy for mods on here that if a question is not posted along with the source, or the source is not identified in a post by the Original Poster within a set time, that question gets deleted by the first mod to notice the time has lapsed. Just a thought on how to keep GMAT "clean".

what about PS problems that ask to solve a decimal fraction or results of adding a bunch of fractions together.

for example: what does .1 + .2 + .3 equal to?
the question can't get more generic than that. would that be a violation since the fractions can be easily substitute with other numbers while keeping the same "format"?

I advise that you keep in mind when contributing that the fellows at GMAC might see what you post, In other words, err on the side of caution!
