Thank you, all, for the responses and kind words. I should also mention that carcass helped direct me to where (and how) I should create my post, answering PMs promptly and courteously. Without the efforts of such moderators, this site would not function nearly as smoothly.

Wow! This is amazing AndrewN. You have always been extremely helpful with explanations of any sort of questions, silly to complex, in GMATClub, and you are the first person who comes to my mind whenever I get stuck in Verbal or when I seek further guidance. Your turnaround time to tag-mentions, as well as patiently addressing my lame queries, is something you have my utmost respect for. Thank you so much!

Thank you for the kind words, Pankaj0901. I think that as long as a question is asked respectfully—the person posting has looked through the question dialogue but still seeks an answer, and poses the question without a "shopping list" of mentions—it should be addressed with the same respect. And if my goal is to assist the community, then I want to put my money where my mouth is and offer whatever information I think would be pertinent to that end. I am glad my responses have helped you.

As always, good luck with your studies.

Good to hear, Laks2021. Keep at it bit by bit, perhaps topic by topic, and you will start to see improvement. And do not be afraid to make a game of it—e.g., counting streaks of questions, or calculating accuracy for every 50 questions—just to mix things up.

Happy May, everyone. I have been working hard for the last few months to put all official CR OG/VR questions in one convenient spreadsheet for anybody to use. A major part of this process was going through every question tagged as official in one way or another so that I could check for its publication in an OG or Verbal Review. Bunuel has been especially helpful and patient with me when I have made behind-the-scenes requests for source tags to be added or removed. I have decided to take a blunt approach and simply present the questions, without publication dates, to encourage members to purchase a more recent edition of the OG or Verbal Review. Some features of the collection and spreadsheet:

• 708 Questions: 266 Low/Easy (by GMAT timer categorization), 221 Medium, and 221 Hard
• Links to every question, as well as keywords to search, in case the links are changed
• More specific sub-categorization of questions (e.g., Weaken Plan, Strengthen Hypothesis)
• Color-coded fields for correct or incorrect answers, as well as questions that take over 2 minutes (all input is manual)

Note that I have not included any GMAT Prep questions to encourage members to use those materials wisely over the course of their preparation. It is my belief that anybody could adequately prepare for CR by using this question set, either selectively or in its entirety, and taking the official mocks. There is no reason to settle for substandard questions written by anybody besides GMAC™ when so much high-quality material is readily available. (LSAT questions are a different story, but even there, I recommend seeking a professional opinion to ensure that the questions are relevant to GMAT™ preparation. Many LR questions are not.)

Without further ado, here is the link to access the spreadsheet. You should be able to download a copy in your preferred format (although some of the cell formatting may not carry over).

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post them below. And if you have a moment, find some way to thank Bunuel. As always, good luck with your studies.

AndrewN, thank you again for this great work! I'm new to the GMAT Club, and in the beginning of my GMAT preparations, so apologies in advance for any lame questions:

1. You had mentioned you have created this list to encourage test takers for verbal to prepare more from OG, and specifically from OG guides from recent years. While there are many great resources for Verbal prep, like, SC butler, CR butler, etc., (from our very own GMAT Club), is there any specific reason as to why you would recommend OG guides for verbal preparation over other resources?

2. I use SC butler every day to practice SC, but find some of the questions not in the same level as GMAC or some questions containing ambiguous results which GMAT might not put the test takers into. Apart from these OG materials you have listed for SC, RC, and CR, are there any materials you would suggest for verbal preparation?

3. Lastly, is there a similar OG spreadsheet or a list for Quants as well?

Thank you so much!

Hello again, gandalfthegreat. I will respond in-line below.

Good question. I recommend using the OG for two reasons: 1) Official questions are unparalleled in their quality and applicability to the test (for obvious reasons); 2) Purchasing the newest official materials is ethical, as opposed to seeking out and accessing all of those materials for free.

None specifically. You do not need anything else if you have gone through these thousands of questions and taken the time to understand them. I agree about the quality of some of the third-party material you find on this site. With official questions, that quality is never in doubt.

Thank you so much!
I am sure some people have put together certain collections of Quant questions, but my spreadsheet is a long time coming. You may want to check the Quant forum to see what is listed.

Thank you for following up.

Sure thing, gpemba2021. If you have been at this task (of preparing for the GMAT™) since 2020, perhaps a little more guided practice will be all you need. Make 2022 your year to beat this thing.

Hi AndrewN,

Thank you for putting in the effort. Curious to know what was your stats in CR and RC.

Do you also have or know of such a list for DS questions?

Hi AndrewN,

Hello, Vegita. Is there a hint of competitiveness in your query, or are you just looking to benchmark your performance? In any case, I will leave RC alone for now, since this thread is dedicated to CR. (Feel free to post a similar query in the RC thread.) When I look back at my document "GMAT™ Prep Statistical Analysis," I see that I grouped all CR questions together, including those from GMAT Prep, Paper Tests, and Question Packs. If I consult the original spreadsheet that I used to create the one above so that I am looking at OG questions exclusively, the results are as follows:

• Easy/Low - 257/266 (~ 96.6%); Average 1:23/question
• Medium - 204/221 (~ 92.3%); Average 1:38/question
• Hard - 179/221 (~ 81.0%); Average 1:59/question

By question type:

• Assumption - 62/69 (~ 89.9%)
• Boldface - 32/34 (~ 94.1%)
• Complete Passage - 48/53 (~ 90.6%)
• Evaluate Argument/Hypothesis/Plan - 45/45 (100%)
• Except - 15/17 (~ 88.2%)
• Inference - 70/74 (~ 95.0%)
• Logical Flaw - 26/27 (~ 96.3%)
• Method of Reasoning - 12/14 (~ 85.7%)
• Must Be True - 11/12 (~ 91.7%)
• Resolve Paradox - 57/67 (~ 85.1%)
• Similar Reasoning - 1/2 (50.0%)
• Strengthen Argument/Evidence/Hypothesis/Plan - 109/124 (~ 87.9%)
• Weaken Argument/Evidence/Hypothesis/Plan - 152/170 (~ 89.4%)

I would say that in assessing the data on the spot (something I love to do), I look pretty consistent across the board. That Similar Reasoning sample is so small as to be statistically insignificant. Of the eight CR questions I would be likely to see on the exam, given that I would probably not see any more than three from a given type, I would be in a position to answer correctly about 90 percent of the time. Even so, whenever I see a single missed question, I take that as a sign that I can improve my understanding of the task at hand.

Thank you for thinking to ask. Perhaps this information will be of use to you somehow.

Lol. I do not dare.

I asked because I have started to track my own performance since yesterday and wanted to know what should be my timing goal in CR, SC, and RC.

CR has been my biggest challenge in terms of timing, but my accuracy has been there. However, looking at your stats in CR is discouraging.
