I can easily get every question out of the sub 600 list but honestly have no clue how to even approach the 700+ list. Are there questions that fall inbetween?

If i'm aiming for 80th percentile in Quant would i have to get a lot of these questions in your 700 bucket above correct? Want to know if i'm really far away from my target or just getting intimidated by 750+ level questions. Thanks again.

700+ questions a different ball game all together. The more I practice the more it dawns on me that you have to get these 700+ consistently correct to be able to cross the 44 mark in quant. A long way to go... but thanks for the compilation Bunuel!
