Hi,

I have completed the OGs (11th and 12th), but in my opinion they are easier than the GMAT Prep. So, I need additional questions.

I'm thinking in using the Knewton course. How difficult are their questions? How "real" are they in comparison with the GMAT Prep and the real exam? (Specially, in SC and CR).

I have heard that Knewton Practice Questions are very close in structure to the real ones, as Knewton has a team of experts and teachers that have come from GMAC. But a current or old Knewton student can elaborate, I think.

BTW, for additional verbal practice, I think GMAC paper tests are a good resource. Give them a try.

Hey there...

I have taken the Knewton course and found the questions to be pretty good...and similar to those in the OG.

Keep in mind, some questions (pre-lesson assessments) are (in my mind) a waste of time (too easy, basic), but I suppose they cater to a wide range of users, some of whom are beginners.

In short, the questions are good (as you know, I've posted some of the SC ones on here).

HTHs, M.

Thanks Martie! How many 700-level questions (aprox.) does the course have?

That's hard to say because they don't give you questions by level. The quesitons are organized by topic (i.e. if you are on the SC lesson, it will give you SC homework questions).

With that in mind, I found that when I was doing questions in Knewton, they resembled those in OG (some, but not all).

Don't get me wrong, Knewton didn't copy OG questions, but a few had some similarities (which is good in my opinion).

HTHs.

BTW...

Honestly, with all the lessons, support, questions and everything that you get, it's worth the \$300 bucks (or whatever the latest discount is).
