Hi guys,
Thanks for creating this great website, I just randomly found it and I trying to prepare for my GMAT, really just started ...not sure where to start :)
Anyway you are using some acronym here such as "CAT", what does that stand for?
Thanks

CAT - Computer Adaptive Test. Means that the computer gives you the next question of difficulty level based on the fact whether you correctly answered the current question. If yes, next question will be of higher assigned difficulty, if no - an easier one. CAT is different in that regard from paper-based test, where all questions are put on paper in advance. Another difference from the paper-based tests is that in CAT you cannot come back to a question later, whereas in paper tests you can skip some questions and then come back later to try to crack them. As far as GMAT goes, I think they have (almost) eliminated paper-based tests.

my kaplan premier 2010-2011 book with cd says it comes with 6 full-length practice tests. 1 is on paper in the book. 5 are available online or through cd. are all 5 of these cat's? the first post of this thread suggests that there are only 4 cat's that come with the book and another poster mentioned that the first online/cd test is not a cat. however, i believe the amazon review by gmatclub founder bb states 5 cat's. so are there really 4 cat's or 5 cat's with the kaplan premier book?

Here is how it should be: 6 full-length tests (2 online and 4 in the book per book's back cover)
There are 5 CAT's
  • 4 on the CD
  • 1 online
1 Non-CAT paper test (at the end of the book)

However, in reality you have a choice between Online and CD (perhaps a bug): I am getting offered 5 online tests instead of 1 or 2 as the book says and here is how it is:
  • 4 on the CD (verified)
  • 5 online (verified)
1 Non-CAT paper test (at the end of the book) - verified

See my reply to you.
There are 5 tests online but 6 are listed (which is confusing since the first one is just a reference to the book test).
You can also contact Kaplan directly at booksupport@kaplan.com

If I use GMAT prep multiple times(more than 2 times), what is the chance that I will get repeat questions ?

I think the 1st of the 5 tests online is NOT a CAT. I guess I can confirm in a few weeks when I take it, if no one else wants to...

You know what's funny? The back of the book says "6 full-length practice tests (4 in the book, 2 online)". Obviously incorrect, whatever the breakdown of tests is.

I have not yet taken GMAT Prep, but this is what I have concluding by reading the posts by other people:

-If you take it twice, there is a very small chance of repeated questions. (~1-2 per section max.)
-If you take it 3+ times, you will most likely see repeat questions, but you will also see new ones. (Maybe 25% repeat / 75% new, depending on how many times?)

To people who have taken GMAT Prep multiple times, does this sound accurate?

It has more than a thousand questions but the chances after the second time are that you will see a few/quite a few depending on your level/answers, so i would not even consider those scores.

Is there a thread for solutions/questions that come out specifically of the GMATPrep tests?
I took my first GMATPrep test and I am reviewing wrong answers, but unfortunately the software doesnt provide explanations and in many cases I dont know how they got to the right answer.
Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Here is a link to a thread with supposedly all SC questions and answers (no explanations) extracted from GMAT Prep: extracting-all-the-questions-from-gmat-prep-93555.html

As far as I know I don't think anyone has done this for any of the other question types.

Thanks for the reference, I wish the explanations were included, but it will still be a good start.

What's the opinion on McGraw Hill's practice tests? I read some posts earlier that said the book isn't very helpful, but what about the tests that come on the CD?

I have "McGraw-Hill 2008 Edition GMAT" and "McGraw-Hill Conquering GMAT Verbal and Writing."

I did a practice test on the CD that came with McGraw-Hill 2008 Edition GMAT and scored a 660. Is that test computer adaptive? Or is it simply just questions by order (so my actual score on the GMAT would be much lower than 660?)

Thanks for your help!

You will get pretty close to exhausting the questions... there are about 1,500 of them in the software. So, may not be worthwhile. Also, I don't know if you need to take that many tests. I took 6 before my D-day.


the reason people give for doing that many is because they are a resemblance to the answers on the test

so if I exhaust the questions it should be a breeze on D day?

This would be way too easy to do :)
If you plan on getting a 700+ score, be prepared to encounter something you have not seen before.
