Hi Everyone,

Thanks in advance for your help. I have a few questions about OG 10 - 12

1) Are the questions progressively harder? Ex. is question 100 much harder than question 2?
2) What range of difficulty can I expect from these questions? If the above is true, do the last few "hard" questions represent questions at the 700 level? 750 level?
3) Are questions from OG 10 and 11 supposed to be easier than those from the 12?

Are there any other common tips and advice with these guides?

Thanks for your help!

See here - this should address. In terms of difficulty, some argue that OG 10 is easier, but it has very little overlap with OG 12. The only word of caution is that if you take OG 10 - it has overlap with GMAT Prep software.

Thank you bb!
The excel sheet looks great. 1 more question, I noticed that things are classified into easy, medium, and hard. What range do each of those represent? Hard -> 600-800 level?

Thanks!

The classification is not scientific, just quick one, but the OG Companion by the GMAT that I mentioned and image posted goes a lot further to estimate the question difficulty. You can pick up a copy from their site.
