Hello everyone. Just a couple of questions. Are the final questions of the PS and DS sections of the OG12 really representative of 700+ difficulty questions on the real GMAT? Aren't they a bit too easy? I know that Manhattan GMAT breaks down the sections into difficulty, but I sincerely doubt that the questions they claim as difficult represent 700+ difficulty questions. I haven't yet taken a CAT as I plan to reserve that for after I finish practicing everything, and I know that would probably answer my question,but I don't want to waste a good CAT only to realize that I'm not good enough to get a 700+. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Thanks for your time and this great forum.

The answer to your first question is yes, kind of. The questions in the OG 12 are arranged by difficulty, so the last 5-10 questions are 700+.

Keep in mind, that you only have 1.5-2 minutes per question, not 5.

I would suggest you take a GMAT prep or another test and judge for yourself, even if just the quant portion of the test.

Thanks bb. I guess the time limit is going to make it much harder. I plan to practice with the GMAT Club tests too. Is there a question bank or quant book that has only 700+ level questions? Or at least a very large proportion of them. Thanks in advance.

There is not really a book for that. MGMAT Word Translations is the only one that comes to mind. MGMAT Number properties is a good one too but not 700 level. Some people recommend Jeff Sackman's Extreme Challenge set but it is \$99 and does not have any theory (only questions).
