Guys,

Most DS questions in OG seem very difficult to me. Did anyone observe this or is just me?A

I am currently working through the DS OG questions as well, and feel that the questions are tricky.
I have completed 115 problems so far and got 39 incorrect out of them.

Wanted to know from the high scorers on this forum on their accuracy rate during the first attempt.

Hi Pritishd,

Many Test Takers start off thinking that DS questions are all about 'math skills', when that's really not the case. DS questions 'test' a variety of skills that aren't really about math at all - including organization, accuracy, attention-to-detail, thoroughness of thinking, the ability to prove that you're right (and/or that a pattern exists or doesn't exist), etc. Once you train in the proper Tactics, and learn to 'see' DS questions in a new way, you'll find that there's a standard series of 'steps' that you just have to go through to answer most DS questions - and even when you're dealing with a prompt that's tougher-than-average, the steps don't really change.

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