This is a very good source to practice SC.

There are some incorrect OAs though:

Part 1.
54. OA is E, not A

http://gmatclub.com/forum/for-many-revi ... -5903.html

73. OA is D, not C
https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/foru ... 24834.html


Part 3.

156. OA is D

https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/foru ... 10265.html


Just double check the answers as you go through, manhattanprep forum has very good explanations by Ron

Hi Souvik,

Thanks for the amazing collection, could you (or anybody else who has figured it out) tell me where can I find explanation to these questions. I like knowing where I went wrong in the question and I feel it's pretty much useless practicing if I don't realise where and how I went wrong and improve upon it as the entire point is to not repeat the same mistakes.

The post somewhere suggests googling the questions to find explanation but the PDF does not support copying the questions as the entire PDF gets selected if I try to copy a particular question.

If anybody could suggest a way to figure out the explanation other than typing out the question in google or here in the forum itself (for the comprehensive CR questions as well) it would be of immense help.

Thanks!

souvik101990, substituting classes with counter strike tournaments, resulted in his failure in the semester.
this doesnt make sense does it?
souvik101990 can be responsible for his failure but cannot actually result in the failure.
subtle wordplay to make "meaning" questions on the GMAT.


souvik101990 I have a question...I have given Gmat Test1 and Test2 ... Does these Banks have an overlap with Gmat3 to Gmat 6 as well??

Hey
It depends on your perspective.
Doing a lot of official questions should definitely help your cause.
But are you looking for a score prediction 2 days prior to your test day?
Is getting an unexpected score going to make you postpone the test?
If answer to both of the questions are yes then I suggest that you stay off the sets.
However, I would give myself a week after I have done with the final gmatprep and in that 1 week I would work on maintaining a proper sleep pattern and working on my diet etc so that nothing goes wrong. In those 7 days I would solve official questions from these sets and would not touch any unofficial material at all.
But thats just me!

Hi. GMATPrep software also provides you with 2 more tests by paying an additional $48 to it besides the 2 free tests that are provided. So my question is, does this comprehensive bank of questions also contain the questions from those additional tests? Or does it only have questions from the 2 tests that are available for free from the website? Pls answer

hello, as I concern, sometimes, I encounter some gmat questions of SC that have the first option (option A) different from the original underline sentences, how should I deal with those questions.

This looks like an impressive collection. Thank you!

I have a quick question:

In some OGs there are questions starting "the coast guard is conducting", "ranked as one of the most important of".
I searched for these in the PDFs but didn't find them.

Were they not supposed to be included in the first place?

If you can please clarify. Thank you.

There are 2 answers that are incorrect:

Part 2: 184 should be C
Part 3: 156 should be D

There are a few mistakes in part one, you'd better recheck.

Thank for such a comprehensive material. It makes practicing so easy!
Great work.

One thing I wanted to confirm is the difficulty level of this bank? Does it has an increasing difficulty level as we see in OG?

Thanks!

Souvik: indeed a marathon job! Further, since you said all questions are official ones, I am curious to know, whether they include OG and OG review questions too. Alternatively, is there a link to the OG questions in the forum?
Thanks in advance.

SC question no 54 has wrong answer in OA . It should be E not A.

Q..For many revisionist historians, Christopher Columbus has come to personify devastation and enslavement in the name of progress that has decimated native peoples of the Western Hemisphere.

The Most Comprehensive Collection Of Everything Official- Verbal



Hello All. This attachment below is the most gigantic collection of official questions ever made.
It includes:

Basically its a complete collection of ALL gmatprep questions of all the softwares! This includes the latest gmatprep: so use it in the final leg of your prep.
This set contains the hardest meaning based questions the GMAT ever made- a lot of those questions are currently not available on our GMATPREP verbal documents.
An example of these new meaning based questions is

As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing the bee to sustain a fatal injury.

(A) As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing
(B) As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes
(C) The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes
(D) The heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, and results in the act of stinging causing
(E) The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes

OA E
.

And the best news is: This collection also comes with an answer key, yet I would highly recommend googling each questions and reviewing thoroughly using "expert replies".

I would strongly recommend reviewing at least 50% of these questions to develop a "GMAT ear" and get a hang of what the GMAT likes and doesn't like.
Thank you!


!
Do not attempt these if you have not covered/used up the CAT's in the GMAT Prep software yet. Otherwise, you will get repeat questions and your score estimate will not be accurate



souvik101990 Can you check the OA for Q61 of Part 1?
As per https://gmatclub.com/forum/although-imp ... 62966.html the OA is A but it's marked B in your document. Please verify and rectify, if necessary.

Dear souvik101990,
thanks for the wonderful collection, please confirm whether questions in the pdf are from the free 2 Gmat prep CAT only,
or also from the GMAT PREP Exam pack/Question pack.

Actually, this information is very important as it would decide when to use this pdf .

Hello Guys,

I Would like to know from which sources were taken these official exercises?

Were they caught up trough a compilation of the official guide exercises released over the years?

OR

Were they taken from the pack of practical exercises sold at GMAC.com?
