Hi, congratulations on that great score. How close were the practice tests questions to the actual exam?

Very close. For every question I got, I had seen a similarly worded question covering the same concept on one of the practice exams and/or the practice questions.

Wow! Awesome score - 90, 90, and 85. This is an absolutely mind-blowing score. Congrats!
Just a theoretical question - do you feel the DI 85 was due to fatigue/slow start or do you feel it was too challenging or just too tricky or perhaps scoring was too harsh?

Looks like you missed 2 DI's - did you go back to these?

­I think I had a slow start to the section because I rushed from Quant into DI. I believe #5, which I missed, was a pretty easy question so that led to some harsh scoring. The last third of the section I was really focused and making up some time, so I'm glad I was able to get all of those right - I think that was my biggest accomplishment during the test. I finished the section with about 40 seconds left and rushed to find #5 but couldn't remember which it was.

Hello, I apologize for the inconvenience, but I have one last question. You mentioned that you practiced all the questions from official practice exams. Could you please tell me where we can find answer explanations for practice exams, especially exams 3 through 6? Since we can only take these tests twice, having access to answer explanations would be greatly helpful. Thank you.

­After taking a practice exam, you can view the score report - which includes every problem and the correct answer. They don't provide answer explanations, but pasting the text of the question into a google search bar and adding "gmatclub" led me to a thread on this website with a good explanation 99% of the time.

Hi Hank, you mentioned in the YouTube video about "GMAT club quant forum that has all the chapter breakdowns." at 21:30 Can you please share that? Also, can you please share detailed post the way you were able to leverage GMAT club for your prep. I think there's now a lot of content on the club and we need a way to filter out of a clear signal from all the noise.
Thanks Hank_McElroyTutor
