Hi, I have a question regarding my registration.

I have registered for GMAT on 2nd Oct and received the confirmation of payment in my gmail. However, when I log into my mba account, there is no information about my new scheduled test. When I try registering for a new test ( e.g 4th Oct), the information shows that I have scheduled for 2nd Oct and cannot make another appointment within 31 days.

My doubt is whether I still can take the test on 2nd Oct as this situation didn't exist in my last appointment. Can you please check for me?

Best regards,
Duc.

Thanks for the clarification Rebecca...Much appreciate.

You've mentioned that we can customize practice sessions, does that mean we can do so for the two practice tests available in the SW or else?

Great question! Because the practice exams are intended to simulate the real GMAT exam experience, you cannot customize the practice exams. The customization is for the practice questions only. Thanks!

Rebecca

Great! But I'm bit confused here and my apologies for that... You said that "There is not a way to view all unanswered questions in the GMATPrep practice exam bank.", if so, then how one can customize practice questions outside 2 practice exams? Does that mean GMAT Prep contains questions apart from 2 practice exams?

Hi Rebecca,
Could you please shot a reply on the above to clear the confusion I've...?

Hi bagdbmba. Yes, that correct. You can create customized practice sessions from practice questions only, not practice exams. So, you can customize practice sessions using the 90 questions from the free GMATPrep software and the 404 questions from Question Pack 1. You will never see questions from a practice exam in a customized practice session.

To clarify:
Free GMATPrep software:
90 practice questions - customizable
2 free practice exams - non-customizable

GMATPrep Question Pack 1:
404 additional practice questions - customizable

GMATPrep Exam Pack 1:
2 additional practice exams - non-customizable

I hope that makes sense!

Thanks,
Tina

Hi,

I bought the GMATPrep Exam Pack 1 hoping to have more realistic GMAT practice but was really disappointed because of the following issues:

1. Same SC question in Exam 3 and Exam 4 of Exam Pack 1 but with two different answers, one of which was obviously correct. In Exam 3, I marked E and got it correct but got same question in Exam 4 but got it incorrect and it displayed OA as D- the screenshot of the same I am attaching below. I am very much sure that the correct answer is E.

2. Same CR question repeated in Exam 4 at question 33 and 38. I am attaching the screenshot below. What was surprising was that the CR question was also there when I gave Exam 3.

3. Questions repeated in Exam 3 and Exam 4: Most of the questions were repeated in Exam 3 and Exam 4 even though I never retook anyone of 2 exams. I thought I will get different questions giving me more practice since the database is different for Exam 3 and Exam 4 as claimed by GMAC.

I request GMAC to look into the issues as it will not be good for the people buying GMATPrep Exam Pack 1. I hope that issues get resolved as I trust GMAC and that it will come up with the resolved version. I really love the way GMAC sets the good and tricky questions. GMATPrep is the only authentic resource for GMAT so far.

Thanks!!

Hi Official GMAT team,

I purchased the $69.90 pack from mba.com store yesterday only. However, whenever I try to activate the Question pack and Exam pack using the Code sent to me on confirmation mail, Both of the packs are not getting activated. I am already using the latest GMAT PREP Software. Can you please look into this urgently, as I am just 20 days away from my GMAT.

I would like to know if the exam pack 1 is transferable just like the Question pack 1. For instance, If I purchase the Exam pack 1 on the laptop can I use it on my desktop?

Hi Fozzy,

Yes, the Exam Pack works in the same way as the Question Pack. You can install the Exam Pack on up to three computers, but you must have the basic GMATPrep software installed. As the tool is not web-based, each installation will run independently.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Many thanks,
Tina

You have a GMAT focus test for the quant section why don't you have something similar for the verbal section? Does GMAC plan to release something in the future GMAT Focus - for the Verbal section?

I was aware about the GMAT write software. I wanted to know if GMAT plans to ever create product similar to GMAT focus for the Verbal section ( 24 question online test for the verbal section) which you can purchase in bundles.

GMATFocus has too many drawbacks and considering that GMATPrep Exam Pack 1 has been released, it has lost its relevance. Earlier I used to recommend GMATFocus but now I have put it nearer to the bottom of the list of official GMAT resources. GMATFocus has several limiations: it does not give an accurate scaled score(gives a range), is not a complete test but instead administers 24 questions in 45 minutes, is expensive, administers a set of difficult questions that are not representative of the experience of a real GMAT test, and finally it has overlap with the Official GMAT Guide. Unless GMAC is willing to fix these things, it is not an ideal product for students.

I am sure that the smart folks who designed the GMATPrep software are aware of these limitations. I would strongly urge GMAC to completely abandon GMATFocus and instead create a GMATPrep Exam Pack 2 with two additional practice tests. This would create a total of six official computer adaptive tests, and reduce the dependence of students on the poorly written tests peddled by the test prep outfits. This I believe would be in the best interest of the students preparing for the GMAT.
