just wanted to get a sense of the most difficult gmat math question you have seen, but mask certain details so that you will not be in violation of the confy agreement...(if it was on the actual test)

please provide a source if u can as well..

On an official test, I saw a word problem on calculating ages of six different people that was longer than most CRs. It even had a scroll tab to get all the information. I have also seen a Kaplan prep problem in the course book on probability that was about as long. Then again, as a Q40 range guy, I can only imagine the level of difficulty for people aiming for a 51-52.

gmatt73, that does not necessarily say it was tough? was it tough for the length or for the actual content?

i find ds questions in all sizes and shape tough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

many times you see a ds, and you think ah.. so easy.. and boom thats a trick question.. i think those are more harder than the probability or combinations or even more detail algebraic equations..............
