I am thinking of buying 5 tests from 800score.com . have people benefited from that, and how accurately do these test simulate real GMAT tests?

I am mainly concerned about verbal part of it .

Thanks all!

Manhattan people themselves say that if you need more FLT then go for 800Score tests.

I would not recommend the 800score tests for the verbal. I bought the 5 tests and found them tough in math (granted math is what i have more trouble with). But I was systematically scoring about 90% on the verbal part of the 800score (and English is not my mother tongue). I took the actual GMAT 10 days ago and only scored 35 (75%) on the verbal. I am taking the exam again in a month and also need to improve my verbal. I would not recommend the 800score for this purpose... but I did find the math part to be of interest (a bit tougher than the actual test) and practicing always helps, especially in terms of stamina and timing...

Hope this helps!!

I got their tests as part of the Veritas package - helpful for the quant but the verbal was waay too easy! I don't think I would buy them - I'd get the MGMAT material instead!!

Buy the MGMAT SC Book and you'll get the MGMAT test first. If you need more help I'd get the PR Tests. If after 6 MGMAT and 5 PR Test and the free Kaplan test you can get + 2 GMATPreps (+ I'd do 2 repeats) and after all 16 test if you need a little bit more work just in the quant side I'd say it's ok to buy the 800score test.

I've only done the free Quant section from 800score and I do not think it is harder than the real GMAT, nor it is a good representative. The real GMAT focuses on number properties and exponents mostly.
The only harder Quant out there that I know of is MGMAT and the challenges. Everything else, including GMATPrep needs to be updated to catch up with the real thing.

I find 800score test really hard I got between 49-51 on MGMAT quant but never over a 41 on 800. On the real thing I pulled a 49 so I'd say that MGMAT quant takes more time than most real gmat questions but the scoring is easier (you can miss more).
