BB, we should skip these question during our practice?
But I have heard that GMATPREP does not have overlap with OG's .
I m surprised to see this.

Gurpreet,

This is sad to know but it is true. I gave test last week and to my surprise, I got 20+ repeat, all in OG12/OG10

OG 10 definitely overlaps with Gmatprep, but I was surprised to know about OG12

I gave another took 2 hours back and again I found some more SC, CR and RC overloop with OG12, around 15, though 90% of them really tough .

Hi bb,

I am curious to know what is the significance of posting these overlapping questions here.

Great score and If I m not wrong you have exam on 24th june? Best of luck for the exam.
There is one post for gmatprep SC question, do not forget to do that and give exam multiple times by installing and clearing logs. I hope you do well.

Lets not deviate this topic for personal talks anymore and do post your overall list of overlaps.

It is of great significance. I can avoid solving these questions prior to my gmatprep tests to avoid inflation in the result. I may or may not get these overlap questions in the exam and after my tests I can review these questions.
If possible post like this :

Overlap with Gmatprep1:
overlap with Gmatprep2:

Just something to keep track of in a separate thread. I have had a few people mention this to me or ask about and I would like to have a resource to direct them to.

The second version is better (it replaced the first one).
Question coverage in both is not very clear but it seems like there are differences (though this has not been verified by anyone)

I'm pretty confused by this as well. I was taking my first-ever GMAT Prep exam and I was quite surprised to run into a familiar question on number 5 of my prep exam. The question is the Halley's comet SC question from OG 12 (#138).

I didn't run into any other problems, but this was really surprising. The MBA.com site was down for maintenance, so I had to use a copy of GMATPrep that I installed a few months ago but never took.

Very strange indeed!
