Hi everyone.
Her majesty. Tejal777))) showed very good example.

I'll collect the links on explanation of difficult (or not so difficult) questions from 1000 sc material., as I work through it.

Sorry guys!!!

As you have already understood, it's not allowed to upload file with the questions.

but you can definitely use google to find the file. It will take you 10 min.

This questions are very good to increase your speed and prepare yourself for any type of surprises in SC.
Good luck!!!

PS. Ive copied all questions from the site, so it's not real Gmat questions.

It's very useful. Thank Ayrish

To bb: I think Ayrish is doing right. Many people are doing 1000SC (also CR) but our forum is very big, it's really hard when we post the question or find the answer. If they're collected, they will be strong enough for us.

Could you stick it and prevent sb from writing unneeded words (such as it's perfect, thank you...), because we do not waste time to follow and add more it logically.

The questions are quite good but not sure if the answers provided in the link align to these questions. I will try to build a simple answer sheet (no explanation) as I go along if there isn't one handy.

Hi burned
So, what is your opinion about the Manhattan tests? Have you worked them through? I also going to try, do you have something interesting to share?
