Hi bb,
Thanks a ton for all the amazing messages that you have posted in the link. I have registered for my exam 3 months from now. After reading through all the threads, I have concluded on the following test taking strategy :

1) GMAT PREP - TEST 1
2) MANHATTAN TEST 1
3) MANHATTAN TEST 2
4) MANHATTAN TEST 3
5) GMAT PREP - TEST 2

Would the above test suffice ? Any additional tests that you would recommend?

Many thanks.
Current Student

In the old days, the best i got to was 640 or so (right before scoring a 750)


I scored 640 on kaplan before my preparation. Actually I had guessed ( not random guessing) many verbal questions and managed to score 37 in verbal. But after my preparation, I have worked warily because of many new concepts , which forced me to look for subtle differences. Now after learning the concepts verbal looks more daunting.

Even the quant was not scored properly. I had few wrong answers, but the score was q46-47.

I took a total of about 6-10 practice tests for my prep (don't remember any more). However, it varies from person to person. I'd take that and see how it feels. You will have a few more MGMAT tests at that point.

Let me know if any other questions.


Many thanks. So it means 6 MGMAT + 2 GMATPREP tests should be sufficient for practice? Or would you recommend tests from Kaplan or other sources?

that should be enough. if you really want to take more practice tests, then i would suggest reinstalling GMATPrep or using the older version over buying additional kaplan CATs.

Hi, I didn't see the "free access to all tests for members with 200+ posts" on the official page of the GMAT Club Test. Is it still open for free for the members with 200+ posts?

Some have asked about Platinum GMAT ................It looks good .............Quant questions are challenging so are verbal(felt a little easy) .....I feel it is adaptive ....

My scores are similar to what i have got in other simulators (Veritas free test, Knewton free test, Princeton Review CD CAT) ......so I believe this a true indicator .....

I was amazed to see 25 votes with 4/5 .......which means others are also feeling good about it ...........

No way does the first Manhattan CAT come close to accurately predicting your final score. Plus, Manhattan has a vested interest in you scoring low, this causes you to be more likely to purchase their preparation package.

That's not accurate. See this tool: http://gmatclub.com/gmat-score-calculator/
You can see a pretty strong correlation between MGMAT and Real GMAT. If I were you, I would focus on the GMATPrep and PowerPrep.

What you are saying also does not make sense - If i bought MGMAT materials and after using them, still scored pretty low, why would I buy their course? They are using the same books in the course, and tests too, so why would I sign up?

I think you need to be more specific with your facts. Otherwise, it's just another opinion and there are plenty of those on the internet...

Hi everybody,
I have a doubt regarding the Kaplan free test that is available.I scored 640 in the free test - Q 41 (9 wrong) and Verbal 40 (10 wrong). I 'd like to know how reflective the scores are; specially after hearing that they have changed the algorithm and things like that. Is there a reason why I scored a mere 41 inn quants while I did only 9 questions wrong? And the questions i went wrong were not the initial 9 questions! I request you to please help me regarding this.

Hey, just wanna warn those of you who rely too much on their MGMAT CAT scores.
I just had my real GMAT today, and was totally unprepared to get a mediocre 640 - a rule of first-10 crucial questions in force!
I consistently scored 680-690 in MGMAT test, and no matter how many mistakes I'd made in the beginning, I still managed to climb up to 680 or higher.
While in the real test, no matter how good I was in the end, the program never gave me questions difficult enough to climb back to the the upper-600s. Questions were easy, and I finished 20 minutes earlier!

To me, it seems like the first-10Q rule doesn't apply in the MGMAT.
Although in other ways MGMAT Cats rock!

yeah I noticed that too. Like I'd be scoring right now in the 570's and I'd get like maybe the first 4 out of 10 wrong and still manage to climb back up.

But here's the catch....

the first question on the MGMAT is always like a 500 level question but if you get that right the level of difficulty doesn't increase linearly, but exponentially! The new few questions I've gotten were 700-800 lvl questions! It's weird.

In any event, I've heard that he MGMAT is the closest thing you can get to the real deal so I'm putting my money where my mouth is and sticking to it.

Kaplan CAT's are usually harder than MGMAT's & GMAT prep. However you shouldn't have that false hope that you'll better on the GMAT.

Hey, wait a minute ! What's going on ?! :x

I clearly remember that the MGMAT tests were second only to the GMATPREP (or the GMATCLUB Tests), but now the rank in the first page is this:

1. GMAT Prep
2. GMAT Club's Tests
2.1. GMAT Club Diagnostic GMAT Test
3. Kaplan GMAT
4. Knewton
5. Manhattan GMAT Tests

Can someone please explain to me what has happened ? Why the Kaplan tests are now better then the MGMAT ?!?


:) Does not mean they are better - that's why there are stars next to each test.
The top 5 tests are arranged alphabetically now (except GMAT Prep which is first). I have taken my opinion out of it and let the users rank them as they thought fit.

Looking at votes, your chart is correct - MGMAT tests are half a star ahead of Kaplan or Knewton.
