On an official test, I saw a word problem on calculating ages of six different people that was longer than most CRs. It even had a scroll tab to get all the information. I have also seen a Kaplan prep problem in the course book on probability that was about as long. Then again, as a Q40 range guy, I can only imagine the level of difficulty for people aiming for a 51-52.

gmatt73, that does not necessarily say it was tough? was it tough for the length or for the actual content?

i find ds questions in all sizes and shape tough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

many times you see a ds, and you think ah.. so easy.. and boom thats a trick question.. i think those are more harder than the probability or combinations or even more detail algebraic equations..............
