Excellent debriefing, sperumba. That's pretty solid score for NYU part time.
I've been reading some of the GMAT experiences from different sources. It seems the general concesus is that the new VUE exam is different than what's on the OG guides. Do you feel the same way?
My primary sources for pratice questions are the OG 10th and 11th, I'm getting pretty good hit rates on them. Do you think the difficulty level on the exam matches those on the OGs?

Thanks divnamite,

I personally think that the basic principles of both ETS offered GMAT and Perason Offered GMAT are the same.

However I am sure of this fact also. GMAC has certainly increased the level of difficulty in the quant section. You can see this clearly from the recent report of scores. The number of 51s in Quant has decreased drastically.

Here is what I think the GMAT administered by pearson VUE does. Once you get the first 5 math questions right it spits out 5 to 6 DS questions in increasing order of difficulty involving complex inequalities and number poperties. Most people are bound to make a mistake in one of these.

If you cross this sucessfully you will hit the Q49,50,51 level.

The first few questions in the OG are sitters. I found the last few questions to be alright. Your best resource is the forum and GMAT PREP. The quant section in GMAT Prep is very representative of the actual quant.

Vebal section has not changed very much.
Hope this helps.

Cool, thanks!!! I did notice a drop in higher quant scores reported in the past few months. I'll definitely looking to change my strategy on answer the questions by spending a few more minutes on the first 15 questions.

Hey sperumba! Wonderful score! Congratulations!

I read in your last post that Pearson vue folks have pumped up the difficulty level of quant! Well ! all these days i have been following quant from OG 10 and princeton. Can you please tell me if I should be working out problems from some other resources?

yes princetons CR technique is pretty good. It is also very clear. They have done a good job of explaining what to look for.

The LSAT book that I used is called Nova's Master the LSAT.

He is what i did for DS with inequalities and number properties.

Suppose the question is a YES/NO question like is x >0

The I worte down is x>0 OR x<0. Thus I would not miss an affermative NO. This I read in One of the posts in the Club. It proved to be very usesful.

The second thing that I did was I always imagined a number line. Rather than distinct values to plug in.

If I plugged in distinct values.I made sure I did Positive numbers, negetive numbers , fractions and 0 . when ever applicable.

Finally I also went back to the question stem to see weather my answer was in line with what exactly was given and what exactly was asked.

For SC. You are doing the right thing. There is no better book than MGMATs SC guide. I made very good notes from the book. Pretty much every thing in the book is important .. But I still made notes. I tend to remember things better if i write it down. So before every test my routine for SC would be to go thro my MGMAT SC notes. I did this on the day of the test as well. Got up and revised my notes early in the morning this made up for good warm up as well.

Keep us posted on how it goes.

Hi Riuscita
I also like Princeton's technique for CR. Have you reffered to this book? The strategy worked for me and helped improved my scores, i still commit mistakes on Inference questions, but the others i can nail.
