Hi All,

I'm solving OG '19 questions online on the wiley website. My accuracy is consistently between 75-100%
I practice on "Exam" mode so the questions are timed & random, i.e. a mix of easy, medium & hard in no particular order.

I know that I'm able to solve the questions within the time frame, but i'm not sure if the questions are representative of actual gmat difficulty level.
Any suggestions on how I should proceed? Is it enough to just practice from OG ? I write my exam in less than a week. So i can't cover much else.

Tanichi - All forms of official questions - official guides, GMAT Prep practice tests, and GMAT Prep question banks - are an accurate representation of GMAT in terms of favor and difficulty level. Practicing official questions in most cases is sufficient. For the Quant section, you may need to practice a few more questions. You should try GMAT Club Test Center, the next best thing to official questions.

Hi Tanichi,

For Verbal, official guide questions are the most accurate representation of the real GMAT question. For Quant, I think the questions are slightly on the easier side however still one of the best resources to practice quant questions.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase Official GMAT practice Question form mba.com for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hi Tanichi,

To start, if your Official GMAT is in less than a week, then you should NOT try to do too much studying at this point (so NO "cramming"). Depending on the exact Test Date, you might have time to take one more FULL-LENGTH practice CAT, but no more than one. You would be better served by getting some extra rest (as opposed to 'burning out' by doing too much last-minute studying), so that you can go into Test Day calm, clear-headed and ready to work.

While quizzes and practice sets are nice ways to test your general skills, there's no way to 'translate' those performances to how you might perform on the Official GMAT. The only practical way to get that type of data is to take a FULL-LENGTH CAT under realistic testing conditions.

While you are close to your Exam, I would like to know a bit more about how you've been studying and your goals:

1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) What is your overall goal score?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Tanichi,

Have you taken any official practice exams to get a baseline score? If not, could you do so, and then report back with your score breakdown?
