I've attempted first 55 questions and got 30/55 correct. Are they considered to be more difficult than regular OG problems?

Hi ,
The answer to question 66 is incorrect in your document. It is discussed here,
http://gmatclub.com/forum/cr-tough-one-tiger-beetles-48925.html#p344013

Please do correct it for future users. I think you took the question from the above link and the answer from this link : http://gmatclub.com/forum/gmatprep-cr-tiger-beetles-what-a-ripper-64555.html

Great document!
While solving the questions, I corrected several spelling mistakes and several incorrect answers (for example, #106 shall be D, not E).
Attached is v1.01

I think the OA for Q17 is not stated correctly. It should be "The first is a consideration raised to explain the appeal of a certain strategy; the second presents that strategy"

Would going through these problems affect when I take GMAT Prep for real? How and when should I use these Questions?

Abhi, these questions have to be used AFTER you have given your GMAT Prep tests! i.e. after GMAT Prep CATs and before your actual GMAT.

Thanks Vinay. That makes sense. I will save all these for the last week when I am done with both the Prep tests.

The problem with arms reduction is that it is an illusory concept benefitting none. Even though designated stockpiles are being reduced, the weapons race continues, as the destructive power of new technologies and remaining arsenals is enhanced in order to maintain the pre-existing firepower. Thus, although it fosters an illusion of progress, arms reduction does nothing to curtail the proliferation of weaponry, and all must continue to live under the constant threat of annihilation.

Which one of the following, if true, would most strengthen the author's argument?

A) Arms reduction allows steady maintenance of the existing balance of power.

B) No arms limitation proposals have aimed at completely eliminating a nation's armament stockpile.

C) The five largest military powers have increased funding for new weapons in each of the last ten years.

D) The distinction between offensive and defensive weapon systems is often merely a matter of interpretation.

E) Arms limitation treaties have only accounted for the elimination of fiteen percent of the total firepower possessed by the five largest military powers.

anyone please tell me this the answer with explaination !! struggling with this !!

Which one of the following, if true, would most strengthen the author's argument?

A) Arms reduction allows steady maintenance of the existing balance of power. - out of scope

B) No arms limitation proposals have aimed at completely eliminating a nation's armament stockpile. - this is already mentioned in a way.

C) The five largest military powers have increased funding for new weapons in each of the last ten years.

D) The distinction between offensive and defensive weapon systems is often merely a matter of interpretation. - out of scope.

E) Arms limitation treaties have only accounted for the elimination of fiteen percent of the total firepower possessed by the five largest military powers. - argument already mentions this.

I would choose C.

Conclusion is that arms reduction does nothin to contain weapons proliferation. C strengthens argument by saying that countries are increasing funding, strengthening
'as the destructive power of new technologies and remaining arsenals is enhanced'.

hi,
there are a few mistakes in the document. I just started using it and found question 1 and questions 17 to be incorrect. Is there anyone who can edit the docs to help other people?

Q1>there are a couple words missing in the stem

Q17>boldface CR options pasted are incorrect.

thanks for letting us know. I don't have pdf writer. So, let's just wait until whiplash takes care of it. Meanwhile, please update us with any discrepancy that you may find.

I've looked around the forum and judging by the accuracy of the GMAT Prep SC Document in predicting one's hit rate with SC, I decided to compile a document with all the GMAT Prep CRs I could find - either on this forum, or on others. The result is a document with 108 CR questions. This document is not necessarily complete and by no means, sufficient to prepare you for the GMAT CR section, but I hope that it would be of some use to you in your preparation.

Its Great You Guys have done it. Thanks
