Latest article by GMAC explaining IR results so far: Article

Interesting:
This article says highest number of people (19%) scored a 6/8 on IR (for scores between 600-640). Interesting that Manhattan folks couldn't find a way to get a 6 on the GMAT prep: here

Here is a major issue with the IR questions on the GMATPrep (and the extra ones provided along with OG13):

They are way tougher than what you will encounter on the real test.I have taken the test myself to testify this fact.

Hopefully it gets fixed in the upcoming software update next month.

Can't agree or deny that. But that is a moot point anyways.

If you are doing a 'What-if' analysis on IR section, you will know the answers after 1 shot at it. So, the difficulty level doesn't matter at all and therefore, it is a bit weird that you can't get a 6 on the Gmat prep.

Funny how right after the test, when I was thinking that I had bombed the IR, I was hoping that schools don't take IR seriously... After seeing my score though, I hope schools do give considerable weightage to IR..
