I'm Italian a and I'm going to take the GMAT to apply for some PhD courses in the U.S. (I apologize if my written English is not perfect, but I never practiced it abroad).

I recently joined the GMAT club and I think the forum is very useful to improve my preparation. However, since I have begun to read the question posted in the Verbal and Quantitative sections my optimism is turning into scare.

I bought the OG (11th edition) and I found the questions quite easy. Towards the end of the sections the questions become harder, but they are relatively easy. I have some troubles in the verbal section because I'm not a native speaker, but I ace the quantitative questions in the book.

Now It's time for the questions...

1)I haven't still used the PowerPrep software, but I "assembled" a test using 37 quantitative and 41 verbal questions from the book (near the end of the sections). Results: 37/37 Q 36/41 V. Not bad, I thought. But when I saw the quantitative questions on the forum I realized they are harder (and time consuming!) then the OG quesions. What shall I expect to find in the real test because of the CAT algorithm? Shall I expect to find 37 hard questions or something similar to the OG questions?
2) The scores for both the sections range from 0 to 60. But I never saw a score higher than 51. Why?
3) Shall I answer all the question correctly to get a score of 51 in the quantitative section?

Thank you!

questions in the Math forum are not necessarily representative, but if you are able to solve them and get comfortable with the concepts they test (mostly probability, work rate, word problems, combinations, number prop and inequalities) your quant score will definitely benefit (also you may want to try the challenges)

I've never seen anyone getting more than 51 in any of the sections, but that doesn't matter, if you take into account that scoring a 51 in both sections would mean a perfect 800 as a final score...

I'm just done with my GmatPrep, got a 51 in Quant with 5 mistakes...
