This post received KUDOS

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 in-between?

Check our

Questions Bank , where you can find 600-700 level questions. Also, visit our

Search Page to filter questions by various categories.

Hope it helps.

thanks a lot Brunuel. One more question. 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.
