Hi everyone,

I am taking one more hit on GMAT and I need to improve from Q44 to Q48. I have like 15 days left to my test, so not much time..

Do you think I should be trying 700-level questions? Or should I stick to 600's? I am pretty ok with the 600's but when I see a 700, I have no idea where to start most of times, it's like a totally different exam I am studying for!

What is your opinion?

Thanks!

Will I see many 700-level questions if I will be doing good enough for Q48? or those will be like in the upper 600's?

What is your opinion?

Thanks!

Hello,

I would suggest it would be good to solve problems for your weaker areas first then to solve 700 level problems from gmatclub. I have solved most of the problems on gmatclub and I personally feel that the 700 level problems (30-40% at least) are higher in level as compared to actual GMAT. So, my suggestion would be to stick to 600 level problems from gmatclub and conc more on your weaker areas. Also, try searching for problems which are from sources like GmatPrep (problems which are bit more closer to actual GMAT)
Hope it helps!

Thank you for the reply!

Yeah makes sense. When I go for the 700s sometimes it takes me like 30 min to understand the problem and all the nuances. It seems that the difficulty gap between 600 and 700 is huge!

I'll keep it closed to 600s and try a few 700s here and there.

Thanks!

Since you just have 15 days left for your GMAT, I would recommend you to stick to the 600 level questions only. Trying new things at this time might not be beneficial.
The best way to go forward would be analyze your mistakes and then work on the problem areas.

Try to bifurcate your problems into different topics such as Algebra, geometry, Number system etc. and then see which type troubles you the most. GO back to the course/boon that you have been following and revisit the concepts.

You can do the same fore the verbal section also:
SC: The questions test various concepts such as S-V agreement, modifiers, parallelism etc. Find out what troubles you.
CR: There might be certain types of questions that are troubling you. May be Assumption, may be conclusion, inference etc.
You need to find that out and then practice them
RC: This again can be drilled down into different types of questions and also different topics. See what questions and topics trouble you the most and then practice accordingly.

1. Have you taken full length mock CATs?
2. If yes, what are your scores?
3. Have you completed the Official Guide questions?
