Thanks Bunuel for the amazing collection :-D

From the collection, I can observe that the 150 Hardest SC' contain almost no question from the Official Source and 150 Easiest SC' have almost most of the Official questions(GMAT Prep, GMAT Paper Based Test, OG) :cry:

If you are consistently getting 100% on all of the questions you posted above in the sub-600 section but missing most of the advanced ones posted above. Where should i focus?

Wow thanks! This collection is a life-saver. I was wondering... what are people's accuracy rates for this set of questions? It would be nice to have some kind of measure, so as to not get discouraged when I start counting the wrong answers lol

I may be the sole dissenting voice but to me studying the above is a waste of time. I just got a V46 and for **** and giggles tried the "700 Level" SC questions above. Literally got 10% of them correct. I'd recommend drilling ONLY official questions. There are plenty of them.

So, the only thing I achieved so far is to significantly lower my verbal estimate in my workbook and screw up my statistics :D I wouldn't be frustrated if it wasn't for the mistakes in many of the questions. It just isn't fair somehow :D

Answers are not correct for a lot of questions here. I advice you to only attempt questions that are posted by verified sources. Even if the source says magoosh or veritas, make sure to check if it is posted specifically by them and not some user who has mentioned the above source.
I am saying this because I have taken veritas tests and answer to the question mentioned by one of the users here does not match the answer provided by Veritas. Therefore, you are treading a very dangerous path here. I repeat, please make sure you check the author of the question and only read explanations and answers by verified sources.
