This is a very good point on your side. It takes a long time to get to hard questions on the test and usually people get tripped up by medium and easy ones under the pressure of the clock

Yes, cuz I have come to realise that even if you can solve a particular hard question, you don’t have so much time during the exam

Verbal questions are hard to imitate. I don’t want to comment on GMAT Club questions because they’re not official just like experts Global.

Usually Manhattan is the gold standard off the third-party mocks. They have invested a lot of time and money into their questions over the years.

So now I try to get easy and medium right, without any silly mistakes and as for the tough ones, after a minute or so, I just make a guess and move forward

In terms of tests, our quantitative tests are amazing. Verbal are not official. We had a number of experts and tutors and moderators review them but not the amount of time and money that Manhattan has invested.

Oh okay

Manhattan I read at a lot of places is way difficult as compared to the real test

Re: Study Plan Q&A Chat [#permalink]
And I want to give a mock so that I can judge where I stand..

If I know that these questions are not gonna come, I won’t be able to derive any meaningful insights, isn’t it?

And with hard questions I have realised, either they click during the exam or they don’t ... Given the time pressure ... 😃

No matter how much you practice

Re: Study Plan Q&A Chat [#permalink]
Many people comment about Manhattan Quant. It is a little on the other side requiring more times than official questions it seems. Many of the hard questions require more calculations… then you would expect on the gym at. That’s the main comments I’ve heard. The verbal questions are probably the best you can get outside of the official questions. At the same time we are splitting hairs in someway. The reason you take tests is to measure your score and to get better at tastic Inc. The square measuring component is always a big question with any test including the official ones but improving your score is going to happen with any test pretty much…
