I just got started on some of the questions on gmat wiley and i know that they are previous GMAT questions.

Just have a question of their stratification of difficulty level on the interface. A hard means 700-800? Medium - 600-700?

Is this a good practice source?

Dear tanww1987,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

First of all, I am little skeptical about the entire idea of assigning point-values to individual question. GMAT students commonly talk about questions this way, but I think such a view of questions is of limited utility. See:
Is this a 700+ level GMAT question?

I would say: if you are at any particularly level, and you are getting just about everything right, then you are practicing below your "zone": this may be nice as an ego massage, but this is NOT a productive place to practice. If you are at a level and are getting about half right and half wrong, that's probably about the zone where you would be if you sat for the GMAT today. If you are getting most or almost all of the questions wrong, you probably are practicing above your zone. If you doing problems that are at or above your zone, that can be excellent practice IF you are diligent about learning from your mistakes. If you take the tremendous opportunity of every single question you get wrong to learn everything you can about that topic and about why you got it wrong, then you can advance like wildfire. If you don't do much review of the question, you probably aren't going to progress much beyond your current level. Practice with minimal review does very little for your progress. Practice with extensive, thoughtful, and thorough review is what produces tremendous progress.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

I think that those questions from GMAT Wiley are similar to OG questions. Only GMAC could know what the difficult levels of those questions are since the difficult levels of those questions could be estimated through experimental sections and then be calibrated through the real test.

We don't know exactly the difficult level, but we could guess via correct percentage. Try to search those questions on GMATClub forum and see the figure.
