      Hi Pat,

      Yes! You can visit our GMAT OG Forum for video explanations to many (thought not all) of the questions found in the GMAT OGs. In terms of GMAT Official Guide explanations, we have video explanations for
      Many of the questions in the 2016 GMAT Official Guide
      Some of the math practice questions and all of the Sentence Correction practice questions in the 14th Edition of the GMAT Official Guide
      Some of the math practice questions and all of the Sentence Correction practice questions in the 13th Edition of the GMAT Official Guide
      All of the math (Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency) practice questions in the 12th Edition of the GMAT Official Guide

      The best way to find answers to specific questions is to use Google–type in Magoosh + [first few words of question]–if we have an answer, it should show up in the first few results 🙂 Hope this helps!

    In OG 2017 there is one more i think is a mistake. in SC question no 717 on page 691, the answer given is option D which is wrong because they are lacking work on Wednesday, otherwise the statement does not make sense

      I agree with you that this answer choice does seem a little bit “off,” even though it’s the best choice of the five answers. The phrase “announced plans Wednesday” is ambiguous– it could be taken to mean that the announcement was made on Wednesday, or it could be taken to mean the the plans themselves will be carried out on Wednesday. The second interpretation doesn’t really make sense, because the sentence also says the plans will take 18 months to complete.

      I’m not sure if this is one of the mistakes that GMAT referred to in its official announcement on 2017 errors, though. This strikes me more as an uncharacteristically difficult/unclear sentence, rather than a typographical error.
