GMAT questions are becoming interesting...

Finally, I've completed the Problem Solving part of GMAT's thin green book. Over the time, the questions did become more interesting and challenging. The last set was really something to thank for practice on. However, my score went dramatically down.

 First of all, it was the smallest chunk of questions I was doing. Second, careless errors -- they are still here with me, no matter how hard I'm trying to get rid of them. ;) Third, I did really miss some part of the questions. I call it concept errors and these are bad. I've devoted an extra time to going over them in solutions and trying to understand. And finally, wow, the book typo is here.

 Here it is in question #168.

Original questions states 1 and 1/2 hour for Airport C, while the solution states 1 and 1/6 hour for it. Oops! (Not my fault anymore! :)
You know, I was constantly looking for a typo, like Will Smith in I, Robot movie was looking for a bad robot. And when I almost gave up -- here it is!
I'm getting ready to Data Sufficiency section now. But I probably will not be doing it tonight, but get some reading instead.
On the other note, I miss my set of teas that I ordered from Adagio last week. That's a first time they are sending it not from Fresno, CA, but from Saddle Brook, NJ, and it's a long way to California. By the way, if you haven't tried Adagio, yet, you've got to do this They've got a great choice of teas and they're pretty good in delivering it. Drop me a line, and I can send you $5 bucks certificate free.
