As the title says, I take the test in a week (March 31st).

My practice tests have consistently been 690-700 (~Q45/V40). I am asking this question mainly in regards to raising my Q score (for verbal, I just need to practice SC. My CR/RC have been scoring high). Should I spend this last week focusing on perfecting the 600-700 level questions, or should I practice the 700+ level questions to have a better chance at maintaining that score.

My realistic goal for the test is 700.

Thank you!!

Hi zackbrenner,

Practice only from the Official sources during the final phase of preparation. Q45 suggests that you might have few conceptual issues in some specific areas. Please try to figure out those and fill the gaps. This will help you to increase your score to 48+.

As far as practice is concerned focus on 650 - 750 level questions. Avoid very hard(750+) category questions.

Good luck.

You don't need to practice too hard questions since they are useless in actual GMAT test. Just try to think of the way that the questions are made. Try to think about the concept of each question. Some of quant questions are just calculation, but some are tricks. If you got Q45 then it isn't too hard to get Q50.

Also, the quant questions in OG are the best since they are similar to the real ones.

I would say focus on Quant medium-hard questions so thats 650+ then once you are confident at that level move on to only 700+.

i think you should focus on 650 to 700 level quant questions and use only official question.

If you're currently at Q45, I would not advise you to do too many extremely tough questions. I think it's better to consolidate your position through targeted practice (difficulty level close to current ability level).
