Hi mikemcgarry ,

I'm loving the Magoosh product! Have rinsed the questions multiple times and have gone through all of the videos (absolutely amazing, I must say.)

I have 2 queries -

1. Regarding the questions categorized 'Very Hard' -
Are these standard 700+ level questions on the GMAT? Or are they beyond the scope of GMAT to just test students' concepts with extremely hard questions?

2. Range of questions covered -
Is it safe to assume that all the questions in the product cover the entire expanse of the GMAT syllabus? I have reviewed my mistakes and built on them. But on resolving, I do end up repeating a few mistakes. For the next few days can I just keep going through my errors (along-with mocks) or should I refer to other material?

Look forward to hearing your reply. I'm a week from the D-Day. Will prep accordingly.

Dear aj42442 & jarkeb,

I'm happy to respond. :-) Thank you for kind words about the Magoosh product. :-)

As with the other difficulty categories, the "Very Hard" questions in the Magoosh product are determined statistically, by comparison among our many users. Since our pool is relatively large, this approximates the difficulty levels on the GMAT well. It's really a bit conjectural how hard the hardest questions on the GMAT are. To some extent, we are approximating. I don't think any of our "Very Hard" questions would be categorically much harder than anything the GMAT would ask. At the same time, I feel confident stating, especially on math, that if you can consistently get "Very Hard" Magoosh questions correct, you chances of getting correct just about anything the GMAT asks is quite high.

Now, as for the range. The GMAT's pool of questions is vast, and I am constantly surprised by what I see in released official questions. There might be, say, 1000 different grammatical structures that could appear in a SC question on the real GMAT--the potential pool is enormous. At the same time, you see maybe 12-14 SC on your entire GMAT, a very small number, and virtually all of those will be of the predictable tried-and-true types. Magoosh covers all the topics that the GMAT asks frequently, regularly, and relatively infrequently. Are there topics that appear extremely infrequently on the GMAT that aren't mentioned anywhere in the Magoosh product? Perhaps, but understand that it would highly unlikely to see even one of those questions on your GMAT--you certainly wouldn't see more than one.

I would say, over the next few days, keep reviewing your errors, and keep practicing all the habits of excellence. In particular, make sure you are practicing stress-reduction skills. See this blog and the linked blogs:
Lower on the Real GMAT than on Practice Tests
You have learned a great deal: at this point, the biggest challenge will be getting out of your own way and bringing your best when it's needed.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)
