Verbal Practice - OG or bust? [#permalink]

After studying for verbal I'm coming to the conclusion that its best to study ONLY from the OG.

Unlike the quant, which generally has an objective solution that can be backed up with proven mathmatical principles, the verbal is really subjective. I find the non-OG material is often more debatable than the OG stuff. With the subjective nature of the verbal answers I find that non-GMAT questions tend to be frustrating to solve as they either have no good answers or more than one. Whereas with the the OG verbal I find even if I cant solve it, once i find the correct answer it will make sense in hindsight.

Anyone else come to this conclusion as well?

I practiced LSAT CR and found this practice very useful but I should admit that it took 1 week of solving OG CR to adapt my too suspicious LSAT style to GMAT CR.

You couldn't have been more right. OG is style, language and substance in one single package, just like the best of girls I like to go out with. Anyways, the point is verbal prep material outside OG is only good for pointers but not for actual improvement in your abilities with practise. You must only try to learn the nuances, the direction you must take in order to get to the answer, OG will help you better nailing it. Practise lots of non-OG material, do the kaplan and MGMAT online tests, and when you think you are adequately efficient, come back to OG, and you'll notice a stark improvement in your scores. The difference is as good as doing a doll, and doing an adult actress!!! Whad'upp!!!!
