Hi,

as a golfer lacks a fundamental skill to performing a certain movement, is a waste of time that he/she practices one million of times; he/she will still get wrong the movement.

You should work to your basic, asking to yourself: why I am picking the wrong one over time ?? is a question of logic ?? I do not fully understand the stimulus what it means ?? I lack a proper English comprehension at a certain level ??

It is true that practice makes perfect unless your fundamentals are strong. I.E you do have a plateau from which you starting practice to the highest level. Otherwise, you turn in a limbo

See this https://gmatclub.com/forum/cr-verbal-qu ... l#p1509480

Hope this helps

Hi folks,

I am new in this and still not sure whether I am posting in the right place. I was wondering if any of you had these "150 hardest questions" selection for the different parts of the GMAT (SC, CR, PS, DS, and RC) in PDF FORMAT.


An answer will be appreciated!

Hey sayantanc2k thanks for posting these--they were super helpful!

#45 is an LSAT-type question, though apparently it most likely isn't even an actual LSAT question. Probably won't do much good for people studying for the GMAT. You may want to swap that one out. Thanks again!
