Leah I appreciate the content. I do have one question though. Why didn't the company put this resource out over the summer? Many application deadlines for round one are in October. This would have been nice in the summer if you were preparing for round 1. Thank you for the contest though.

The questions offer great utility in terms of areas defined in ESR. So far, no logical answer exists as to what constitutes analysis/plan and construction in CR. Such division will help us in understanding where we suffer the most and improve in such areas.

The book is available online and from amazon. It seems quite decent. My quick analysis is here:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/new-gmac-pro ... 04491.html

Thank you for your post and connecting the dots for me. This is helpful and win you a prize for actually telling me what these weird categories mean. The book is available now and I can tell you that Construction/plan is Argument Construction (which is Assumptions), Evaluation of a plan, complete argument, non-traditional strengthen/weaken

Analysis/Critique is boldface, traditional weaken/strengthen, issue/criticism

Good luck dissecting these

Hey bb, this is just not it. After careful observation of many ESRs, I have realised that GMAT tries to give approximately equal no. Of questions from both categories and general analysis type questions are bit more difficult than construction type.

The ratio of no of construction/analysis decreases with higher GMAT scores.

If this book comes alive, a student,aspiring for high score, can understand where he has to focus. We can even update our error log based on this criteria and add add these in the question tags itself.

Let's wait till I purchase the book. Amazon takes 15+ days to ship to India.

all category in CR could be kind of a +700 level and make suffer you (or at least timing issue under 2 min ).
you maybe cannot determine which area you are good or not good ...all 700+ level could be hard whether it is strengthen or maybe SC pronoun SO ON.

Hey no

I meant that the knowledge derived from these questions can be extended to existing official questions. I didn't limit my argument to this book.

Yes, I think ArtVandaley's point was that we can finally may be possibly could theoretically read the ESR (if we are very lucky).
I have to say that the questions in those 2 groups seem somewhat hard to me to distinguish. There are clearly differences but they are very so subtle.
