How to choose questions from the GmatClub Question Bank?  [#permalink]

Folks, this is my very first post on this supremely wonderful forum. I'm planning to give the GMAT sometime in May/June next year and as a result I'm trying to figure out the study material that I would want to use for my preparation. Here is the list that I've made so far


1. OG (New and Previous Editions)
2. Manhattan Study Guides - ebook/Kindle format (Already purchased)
3. GMATClub Question Bank
4. Mock Tests (Experts Global or Veritas or Manhattan - Too early to decide)

Now my dilemma with respect to point 3 is that there are thousands of questions from so many varied sources in the Question Bank. And I certainly don't believe that doing more number of problems would give me a great score. Rather doing limited but quality problems (and reviewing them) that are closest to the kind of questions tested on the GMAT is what will help me in achieving my target score (minimum 730).

How do I choose the best ones and the kinds that are frequently tested on the GMAT from such a vast question bank? Surely there must be problems in here that are very good from a difficulty perspective but they may not be the typical GMAT problem type. Is there a way to sort this out? If no then I might have to purchase an online program to help with this particular issue of mine.

For few test takers attempting full length Quant Section tests do not improve timing; instead you should take small Quant quizzes consisting of 5 questions over 2-3 weeks time. "GMAT Club Test Center" is an excellent practice.

When you take those tests, please try to complete questions within 2 min. You MUST review the solution post every quiz attempt. I'm sure you'll make significant gains over a 2 to 3 weeks if you practice in the above mentioned manner.

I would suggest you cover topics and then attempt small quizzes consisting of 5 questions over several weeks. Once you get 80-90% accuracy, attempt a full length section test and see how much you score out of 51. I'm sure that, if you practice religiously, you'll get 48+ in the Quant sectional test. GMAT Club Tests are the best resources for Quant practice. My Q50 in the first attempt was solely because of diligent practice of GMAT Club Tests.

Official questions are like goldmine!! No matter which all material you choose to use, give first preference to OG questions and if you have sufficient time, then give all the six mocks!!

My query was regarding the GMATClub Question Bank though :) I'm aware of the awesomeness of the GMATClub Tests and I certainly have them in mind. But a decision to solve these tests in future cannot be made now since i'm yet to begin my preparation.

Certainly, the OGs are a goldmine like no other. I think doing the OGs well should get me to the 680-700 level and from then on I can focus on 700+ level questions.
