and the OG connecting "testing different skill sets" with an easy question is also not true either. :P

high and medium high are subjective, if you’re good youll never know which mistakes u made. i got a v46 and 33/36 in verbal but couldn’t tell my mistakes

instead of focusing on individual qs levels what i did was - improving overall correct %, in the beginning it was 70-75 then 80 and towards the end of my prep around 85% overall correct

Hey, where can I get topic wise GMAT questions? Like specifically for Statistics or Probability? I have already enrolled in Magoosh, but not getting topic wise questions. Any suggestions?

Likely. The test could start at anywhere though. And the experimental questions could be at any level. Also the test can validate an 800 in weird ways which we need not get into.

You can see this by BB. Questions are listed by topics and difficulty levels.

Braintree, According to GMAC’s ESR report of a 730 scorer(screenshot attached), the test taker started with a medium difficulty and then remained at a medium-high difficulty throughout his test; however, If I were to take the official GMAT Mock tests 3, 4, 5, or 6; each of these these tests has a fixed number of questions, ie, 31V and 36Q questions, which most likely includes equal proportions of Easy, Medium and Hard questions.
Now, I am confused whether these mock tests could be relied upon considering that they don’t have a variable set of questions?
What are your thoughts?
Also, If anyone else wishes to pitch in their thoughts, please feel free to. :)

@bb, aah, I see now. :P Maybe you are right about what you said. :P
You see, each dot on this graph represents the average difficulty of 9 questions for a total of 4 dots. :P so if the average difficulty of 9 questions starts at close to medium and then remains at medium-high, then it absolutely must have had some easy questions in there as well. :P So you are right. :) But I am still not able to understand how the gmat could give someone a 99 percentile by testing them on equal proportions on easy, medium and hard questions? :( The graph skews medium-high for on this so surely there has to be more difficult questions and less easy/medium questions? What are your thoughts?

The official GMAT Mock tests are adaptive. While the number is fixed, the proportions are not. The difficulty is adjusted, and depending on your skill level it shows you a specific difficulty level. This is exactly like the official GMAT test. The official GMAT Mock tests are perhaps the best predicitor of the score you will get on test day. This is only true if you take them in a test-like environment (so no cheating, pausing, etc). Also, the more official mocks you take the more accurate it will be in predicting your score.

What are your thoughts?

I can tell you from experience, at least in the verbal section, if you are scoring anywhere near the mid 40s, you will not be seeing an easy question, and in my experience, you will see some more rare question types.
Moreover, like bb said, it is much harder to make a difficult question, and the gmat gets a new question pool every 16 days or so. So by that reasoning, there will probably be more 650-700 questions than 700+. In the GMAT, becasue of it’s adaptive nature, it is somewhat more important to not mess up easy/medium questions, than to get the super hard ones correct. Missing a super hard one, might drop you from say Q51 to Q50, but missing an easy one will ruin the rest of your exam.

Guys,
Any suggestions on how I can get kudos?
Asking or begging for kudos is "not allowed" on this forum and people don’t really give kudos no matter how much you help them so helping others out thinking that they might give you kudos is also a waste of time.
I think most of the people who have kudos on here got them by posting questions but now literally all the questions out there have already been posted on here so I simply can’t figure out how to get kudos. My profile says that I need 15 kudos to get to the next level but I don’t know how to get kudos.
Can anyone from the mods or anyone else please suggest?
