What is the GMAT exam level difficulty? Do we get similar OG verbal level difficult questions?

Hi chand567,

Your question is a bit vague; can you go into a bit more detail on what you'd like to know more about? It might also help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) Have you taken any practice CATs/Mocks yet? How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

The GMAT is an adaptive exam, so there is no one difficulty level. The OGs also have questions across difficulty levels, so you won't find (let's say) only difficult questions in the OGs.

Hi chand567,

Assuming that your current 'ability level' is around 600 (or so), then it will likely take at least another 2 months of consistent, guided study to raise that Score to a 680+ and you'll have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. Thankfully, the GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam, so you CAN train to score at a higher level.

"Review" is an exceptionally important part of the GMAT training process; your ability to define WHY you're getting questions wrong is essential to defining the areas that you need to work on (and the specific things that you need to 'fix'). As such, I'd like to know a bit more about your last CAT. While a full Mistake Tracker would provide a lot more information, there are some basic questions that you should be able to answer (and the more EXACT you can be with your answers, the better):

1) What was your Score on your most recent CAT (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

After reviewing each section of this recent CAT, how many questions did you get wrong....
1) Because of a silly/little mistake?
2) Because there was some math/verbal that you just could not remember how to do?
3) Because the question was too hard?
4) Because you were low on time and had to guess?
5) How many Verbal questions did you 'narrow down to 2 choices' but still get wrong?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
