Thanks for posting! My main take-away is to know the OG well. I'll remember hint 8 too:

"To score high on the GMAT you need three things. You can not score high unless you have mastered these three:
1. Knowledge: SC structure and grammer, MATH forumals and concepts, Vocabulary for GMAT in RC and CR .. etc
2. Skills: Process of Elimination, reading skills, logical reasoning, ability to extract information data from a math questions, data sufficiency skills .. etc
3. Strategy: time management, educated guessing, skipping hard and time consuming questions, stamina strategy .. etc"

I love these sort of posts. Makes GMAT Club a great resource.

It's interesting that the OP thinks the GMAT is getting harder. I guess everyone is using this site nowadays to really get an advantage!
