Worth tackling OG 10th? [#permalink] New post 31 Dec 2011, 02:24
I've just finished OG 12th Quantitive section. Q section is my weak point and percentages of correct are 64% (PS) and 59% (DS) according to my error log.

Now, I'm wondering what is the next step. Of course, I have to review wrong questions and I'll try new material to improve my Q skills simultaneously. Before I did OG 12th, I haven't done any materials. My choices which have in mind now are

  • Jeff Sackmann's 1800 Question
  • Some MGMAT texts (maybe Number Properties and Word Translations)
  • Your recommendation? :wink:

OG 10th has lots of question. So it's a good material to get used to GMAT style of question, but I've heard that OG 10th is easier than the present GMAT actual test and that's why it doesn't worth tackling.

I'd appreciate your suggestion. :)

Number Properties and Word Translations are great! OG 10 is awesome; I use it all the time. Its my main book since I burned up the OG12 question studying very early on. Best of luck and feel free to ask anything else about these texts. Jeff Sackmann is one text I have no idea about.

Thanks for your advice! I'll try MGMAT first.

OG 10 is great as it has 1,400 questions as opposed to 800-900 in the OG 12.

On the flip side, there is some bleed over into the PowerPrep and reports say it overlaps with GMAT prep as well (I have not confirmed this for sure but several people reported on this)

For Jeff Sackman, see here: how-i-upgraded-my-700-to-a-770-q50-v44-82149.html

Here is a break down of OG10 problems by topic. I dont know who made this, but its been blessing to have this document. It breaks down a lot of the OG10 questions by topic and sub topic. For Example it has a section for Sentence Correction and Subtopic Listing for Modifiers. Take a look and enjoy for all OG10 users!!
