I recently took the GMAT Prep CAT practice exam, which is supposed to be just like the actual GMAT exam. I started creating an error log, and I realized that on the verbal section, out of the 41 questions I received, 19 of them were sentence correction. I received 13 reading comprehension questions, and only 9 critical reasoning questions. That means 46% of the questions were sentence correction. Is this a normal breakdown for the verbal section? If that's the case, then should I not spend much time studying for the critical reasoning section, and focus most of my time on sentence correction and reading comprehension, since they both accounted for nearly 80% of the verbal practice exam?

atr0038 Expect anything on the GMAT. A question here or there won't create much of a difference.So, focus on all the components of the GMAT!

I only have a month until the exam, so I'm trying to focus on the low hanging fruit first.

Don't ever go with this assumption. Was this an official exam? I have never seen such discrepancy in the past.

I would say don't underestimate the importance of any section and focus on all completely.

Forget about what happened on this Mock.

All the best :)
