Hi dabral,

Thanks for your comments. GMAT Focus was designed to be a quantitative diagnostic, which is why it is Not a full exam, but a 24 item CAT sampling. In regards to difficulty level of the questions, it is a quant specific computer adaptive exam, which draws from a bank of retired GMAT items.

I will also share your comments with the team as I am sure they will appreciate the feedback.

Thanks,
Tina

Tina,

Thanks for being open to suggestions about your GMAT products. I really appreciate GMAC for being receptive to comments and suggestions. And thank you for introducing Exam Pack 1, which was a much needed set of official practice tests that will be of immense help to students preparing for the GMAT.

Thanks,
Dabral

Hello

Just encountered a problem with my GMATPrep software. I have the latest version (I think), which allows me to review questions/answers even after I close the exam and application.

I JUST finished a practice exam today (Nov16th), got 720, etc. However, I cannot find it now in the "Practice Exam section" of the software. Is it lost forever? I really want to be able to see what I got wrong, etc. Anyone?

I attached a picture to show my problem. Thanks!

I got a strange gmat prep1 score today on the new version...
Few of my last mock scores,old to new

Gmat prep 1 350 Q27 V12 (1 july)
800 score 460 Q33 V23 (29 sep)
Kaplan 1 490 Q40 V16(15 oct)
Kaplan2 520 Q43 V17(2 nov)
Mgmat 1 520 Q40 V23(14 nov)
Veritas 1 560 Q40 V27(16 nov)
Gmat prep 350 Q27 V12 (18 nov)

This is so strange my target is 600, hows this even possible? :( :(

I tried Gmat prep older version in the month of july 2013 and got the same score that i got today 350 Q27 and V12, can this be a software bug since i have both the software loaded in laptop,else how can i get same score and same split??I scored much better on kaplan,mgmat and veritas which are also considered accurate.

Please help experts, i have my gmat in 2 weeks and my target is 600, i was happy after veritas mock that iam closer to my target score, but certainly feeling so depressed :( :( :(

Hi Samwong,

Please accept my apologies for the delay. The free practice questions available on mba.com and Facebook are taken from past editions of the GMAT Official Guides. There should be no overlap with questions that appear in any of the current official GMAT products, such as GMATPrep Exam Pack 1 etc.

I hope this has been helpful.

Many thanks,
Tina

Hi raihemanshu,

It's good to hear you're finding the advice on GMATClub helpful with your GMAT prep. It sounds like you are looking for advice from other GMAT test takers. I would recommend that you re-post your question to the main forum as this is the thread for GMAC, the makers of the test.

All the best,
Tina

Hi Saracenn,

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, but there is a fix for this.

Please download the new version of the software v2.2.317, which is available for download at www.mba.com/gmatprep.

Upgrading your current version is easy: simply download and install the new GMATPrep file over your current application (you do not need to uninstall the old version). You will not lose any information relating to your history to date and any installed Question and/or Exam Packs will continue to be active.
To retrieve lost exam results from version 2.2.315, click “Review your practice exam scores” from the home screen.

If you still have problems after following these steps, please let me know.

Thanks,
Tina

Hi Tina,

I have two queries..

1) I have taken gmat prep 1 twice(By resetting it), i want to know that if i reset it for the 3rd time, by this am i consuming questions from gmat prep 2, or questions are alloted seperately to both the tests and there is no chance of mixing it....

I want to take gmat prep 1 number of times and want to save gmat prep2 fresh, so that i can take it before my exam..

2) I cant check the official solution of any question on gmat prep, i can only see the correct answer and no solution...Is there any way to check them or i have to google each and every question?

Thank you!

@prateekbhatt

The two practice tests in the GMATPrep Free tests use a shared database of questions. This means that if you took Test#1 twice or three times, it is highly likely that some of those questions would appear in Test#2. I have encountered this in my trials with GMATPrep. This means the best way to use GMATPrep multiple times is to follow the sequence: Test#1, Test#2, Test#1, Test#2, and so on. Of course, the scores on subsequent attempts will be somewhat biased because of the overlap but this is the best option of maximizing the use of the excellent GMATPrep tests.

In the older version of GMATPrep software, say from 2006, one could take GMATPrep Test#1 repeatedly and not see any of those questions when one took GMATPrep Test#2. This is no longer the case with the current version of GMATPrep.

Also, in the case of Exam Pack 1, which also has two additional tests, one should again take Test#3 and then Test#4. One could then repeat Test#3 and Test#4, however the database of questions is significantly smaller(compared to GMATPrep Test#1 and 2) in Exam Pack 1, resulting in a substantial repetition of questions, and the scores on subsequent attempts are meaningless in my opinion. GMAC created Exam Pack 1 to be ideally used for a single attempt on each of the two tests.

Perhaps GMAC can further confirm this.

Thanks Dabral,

I guess i have messed up, Taken gmat prep 1 thrice , although gmat prep 1 and gmat prep1 retake were as good as new mocks since i did not see any repeat in quant and 4 repeats in verbal. When i took gmat prep 1 for the third time i saw 7 repeats in quant and about 6 repeats in verbal.

Guess i have wasted gmat prep2. I will conly consider gmat prep 1 and gmat prep 1 retake as 2 gmat prep scores..

I took a practice exam using gmat prep and when I ended the test I can no longer see my results. It likes I never took the test. Is there anyway to recover this test, I really wanted to go back later on and review my questions/answers.

Hi,

I was wondering if the above post is true that the Exam pack 1 can be used for 1 attempt only and rest of the attempts would have lots of repeat?

I took my GMAT once. After the exam, I provided my GPA wrong in the background information section due to miscalculation. Will I get a chance to change it when I take the exam in future or to send my correct GPA to the schools that I am going to apply? Please help.
