Interesting debrief. Thanks for putting it up.
Can anyone throw some light on how good the Princeton Review CATs are ? Although I still have quite a few weeks before I start taking tests, but i am in the process of collecting tests

Stay away from the Princeton CATs ,IMHO. Their scoring algorithm is flawed and the questions are also not good. You may wanna take MGMAT CATs

Thanks for the inputs. How about the Kaplan CD Companion tests ? Any feedback on them ?

I have taken the Kaplan CD companion tests and I think that they are quite bad. I just took two of these CATs and got 580 and 550 as the scores which left me depressed for sometime. Didn't take any tests after that and straight away moved to MGMAT and GMATPREP CATs.

Same here. I thought that the CD companion tests are not computer adaptive at all, or are semi computer adaptive at the best.

Guys,
I have a question regarding tests. How many times should I be taking the GMATPREP CATs during practice ?

The RC99 passages, in my opinion, are good though but I'd bother to do only the low and the medium difficulty level passages as the high difficulty level ones are crazily difficult and you're not gonna see those difficult passages on the GMAT.

Yes, I agree. I did firstly the OG12 passages and then moved on RC99. Did only passages till medium difficulty level and I must say that my accuracy level has become consistently good. Although the passages are not much on the lines of what the GMAT passages are like in that these passages in RC99 are longer than what you're likely to see on the GMAT, if you can understand these passages then you'd be really ready to tackle those difficult GMAT passages.

Hey Dewakar,
Great story. It seems like you almost used every resource available but the good thing is you were able to distinguish what is good and what is not. Which school did you finally join ?
