All,

I am taking up ma GMAT on Aug 6th. I have gone to few classes to know the concepts of maths n verbal. I am just following GMAT OG 11, Official GMAT Verbal n Quants book.

I would like to know, will GMAT OG includes tough questions too? Or it contains jus easy n moderate question?

In other words, the high difficulty level questions of actual GMAT exam are available in GMAT OG?

I am aiming to get at least 700 and I just have only 15 days. Hence following GMAT OG 11 will be sufficient to score 700?

Well!! You have just jumped in a sea and now you are wondering what to do???

Dude I welcome you in this community!!! This is a site which one never forgets whoever spends a few serious days while browsing here.

This forum is one of the famous places of top scorers of the GMAT.

In my personal opinion, you have so little time and you have so bigger ambition. All my wishes are with you but if I were you, it would have been impossible for me to crackt the GMAT with a month preparation and a 700 target in my mind. Any how, best of luck to you.

Have you given the GMAT prep test (the free software from GMAC)??? Any other free online practice tests??

As far as the OG is concerned, its not at all sufficient for having a 700 score. I think you should have come here earlier enough.

Best of luck again!!!

OG is surely not enough to reach 700+.

1) MGMAT Quant challenge questions - 250
2) GMATclub tests - 25 quant and 6 verbal - it is definitely worth the money for quant part based on the numerous reviews

OG just gives you a feel of the type of questions you will face on the gmat
It is no way exhaustive

Try to get very very strong with the concepts that are tested, you can do it in the remaining time, provided you give a lot of time daily. I believe gmat is all about concepts, because the same thing can be asked in different ways, if you know the fundamentals, you can tackle it.

As for the source, I didn't do any of the quant books recommended for gmat, but i did my quant prep from another book meant for entrance exams to B schools. So i dont know which books to recommend to you.

Kaplan 800 is a pretty useful book after OG..I dont think the Quant in OG is upto the mark..Its too simple.
