It is so difficult for the students to understand that this test need an holistic approach, is a test about logic, is an entrance test, is'nt a test of the end of the book "done I know all the necessary to tackle the test"............. :roll:

lol i was just trying the new tapatalk
anyway, i think the new so called "radical" changes in the GMAT is a HUGE marketing ploy by some prep companies. I think it is largely similar as it used to be, and I also think a person who scored a 750 in 2002 will NOT score less than 720 if he takes it right now.

Because OG contains historical questions as well. The previous collection had Idioms as well!

Its no where written clearly that Idioms wont be a part of the test. Instead of avoiding idioms, we can just be as prepared as we were planning to!

Dear PSMBAPS,
First of all, on the issue of idioms, see:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/how-import ... orrection/
Here's a free idiom ebook:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-idiom-ebook/
Here's a blog with DS tips:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-data- ... ency-tips/
Here's a blog, with several links about number properties, one of the most tested topics:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-number-properties/
Here's an article about CR strategies, with links to individual CR question types.
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/save-time- ... questions/
I hope all this helps.
Mike :-)

OG 13 uses retired questions, which are by definition 8 years old. Any recent GMAT taker would vouch for differences in SC. Countless debriefs have reiterated the same.

Dear PSMBAPS,
I'm happy to respond. :-)

Here's an unconventional take on RC:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/curiosity- ... n-success/
Here's a more standard set of RC strategies:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/strategies ... ion-types/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-rc-el ... g-answers/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/inference- ... rehension/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-readi ... ully-once/
Of course, the biggest and most effective strategy by far is: READ, READ, READ. Over and above any GMAT prep, you should be reading. Here are some suggestions on what to read:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-reading-list/

For IR, see
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/tips-for-g ... reasoning/

For AWA, see:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/the-direct ... -gmat-awa/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-awa-strategies/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/typical-fl ... a-prompts/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/brainstorm ... -gmat-awa/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-awa-example-essay/

For overall test-taking strategies, consider:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/understand ... rformance/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-study ... vs-random/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/pacing-and ... -the-gmat/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/when-to-guess-on-the-gmat/

Finally, for exam mindset, consider:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/overcome-g ... y-breathe/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/beating-gmat-stress/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/the-gmat-b ... g-picture/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/zen-boot-c ... -the-gmat/

I hope you find all this helpful.
Mike :-)
