I have completed OG 12, 11 and Verbal Review.

I am looking for extra RC practice on Standard Material only. I tried OG 10 but I found the passages to be much more difficult and longer than anything in the OG 12 or Verbal Review.

Should I continue practising OG 10 ? or Has it become obsolete or something like that?
Can anyone give me a proper comment without drawing a gray area.

P.S. Do not talk about RC99 or GMATPrep documents.

while it is true that passages in og12 are slightly shorter than og 10; I do not think passages of og 10 are more difficult than those of og12. Actually there is some overlap between the two. Some OG 10 passages are slightly longer because they might have been derived from GMAT paper pencil tests. The quality of passages and structure of questions are not different in OG10 and 12. I will suggest that you keep practicing from og10 if you have run out of material.

Veritas prep Rc guide is considered pretty good. It has about 23 high quality passages.

The OG 10 is a good source for questions. And yes, this book is still relevant and good for study. With that said, there could be some overlap with it and the GMATPrep software. This could lead to a less accurate score and test experience. But since you already have the OG 10, you might as well finish it.

I realize that you mentioned "standard material only," but pike is correct to mention LSAT passages for practice. Consider those as well.

Why not RC99? I have seen a lot of posts praising the quality of questions there.
Alternately you could try GRE/LSAT or 3000 RC documents.

Yes I am using LSAT papers and I get most of RC passages correct but for some reason OG 10 is giving me the jitters. Maybe its just me. I might be the first one to be more comfortable with LSAT passages than GMAT Passages.

The reason why I said standard material is that I took a couple of Mocks which had ridiculous RC passages - too complicated, but my GMATPrep had 0 RC mistakes - no guesses. So guess I have to try harder with OG 10.
