There is always so much going on in the forums that it is hard to keep track of changes and additions. There are also projects taking place behind the scenes that may not be visible on the forum, such as work around the tests.

In this thread I will attempt to post all the latest developments and additions to this site, but there are so many that I undoubtedly will miss some - if you stumble upon a cool new thread, a great sticky post, or an initiative by members, please post it here. I encourage you to subscribe to this thread.

If you have any questions about the thread or the site, please post them in this forum.

Tuesday Update:
I am traveling for work and that slows down my ability to work on the site and also post updates of what others have done, so here are a few additions to GMAT Club:

1. New thread - How to get the most out of GMAT Club website - a guide that will help our new members learn about managing subscriptions, using avatars, and navigating the site more efficiently
http://gmatclub.com/forum/t76228-how-to-get-the-most-out-of-gmat-club

2. Chat now displays Chat Status in the forum, so at any point in time you can see if any of your friends are chatting online (screenshot attached). To access chat, click on the "Chat" tab at the very top of this page.

I think the question you should be asking is not only is it close to the real experience, but what level of difficulty are you aiming for?? It's quite possible that somebody that scores 99% V will give you a different response than somebody that scores 70% V. I think if you can frame it the way that MGMAT does (700-800 level, 600-700 level, etc), that would be helpful as you analyze your results and create new questions.

Very good point
Main reason I did not ask about difficulty is that I did not provide the answer choices yet - that's next step

Gotcha. I may not have been entirely clear in my initial response (happens regularly . I wasn't referring to “answer choices” as in A,B,C,D,E, but answers in response to the question you are asking.

How cloose is this question to the Real GMAT or Official Guide?

Is not close at all
Is not close
Is average/undecided
Is close
Is exact match

Somebody that regularly scores 99% V may say "Is not close", when a person that scores 70% V may say "Is close" if the difficultly level is a 650 level question. Reason being is that the 99% V person isn't seeing 650 difficulty level questions on the exam. I suppose that's what I was getting at. Make sense?

Perfectly Clear - I almost got that from the first post - I am not as fast
