I would stick to reliable sources for CAT exams: GMAC, MGMAT and Kaplan. There are more than 10 CATs among them. I have heard some good things about Knewton tests as well, but hard to imagine most people doing more than 10 full length CATs. Each practice CAT will easily take at least 5 hours (3.5 hrs to write the exam and at least 1.5 hours to review all the results in DETAIL!). Realistically -- how many people can / will spend more than 50 hours on practice tests alone?? Aside from the tests -- you have the OG questions to solve as well. I think it's more about quality than quantity. What's the point of doing 20 CATs -- if the questions don't reflect the tone of the GMAT.

Hi Matt,

I am taking second attempt at GMAT(700 the first time).

I already used all MGMAT CAT's (I even reset them and tried again).
But it was a year ago. and now I do not have access to them anymore.

Should I buy that package again?
I mean does it have large number of new questions ?

Hi All,

I am retaking GMAT and I have exhausted all MGMAT's and Free CATs available from Kaplan/Knewton/Princeton.

So for my second round is Kaplan online CATs a possible option?

I have read that Kaplan material is not tough and may not be suitable for 700+ (I am now targeting 750).

Do I have any options left?
(I will be buying gmat club questions but looking for more stuff.)

Any pointers will be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Anil

On the amazon link you have provided, it says:
"Purchase of this book includes online access to the Advanced Quant Homework Bank of extra practice questions and detailed explanations not included in the book, as well as to the Advanced Quant Bonus Drill Set."

If you would be able to throw some light on this discrepancy, it would be very helpful.

Anil,

The Advanced GMAT Quant Strategy Supplement comes with access to the advanced quant question bank and bonus drill set but not the 6 CATs. You can, however, get access to the 6 CATs with the purchase of one of our 8 Strategy Guides. You can read more about the 8 Strategy Guides here: http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... 28&catid=1

Thanks for the info Matt.

Your(manhattangmat.com) website mentions that any guide comes with the 6 CATs.
But the link on amazon says :

Special Features:

Purchase of this book includes one year of access to ManhattanGMAT's online Number Properties Question Bank (accessible by inputting a unique code in the back of each book).

It does not mention about the 6 CATs.

Does that mean, we will bet getting the 6 CATs only if we buy from manhattangmat.com ?

Anil,

Thanks for pointing this out.

I can assure you that purchasing any of our Strategy Guides new, even from Amazon directly, will guarantee you access to the 6 CATs. Each Guide also comes with its own Question Bank of 25 questions.

Hi,
Help needed to estimate my score from Barrons GMAT CAT. I have used the Barrons CD provided by a friend and below is my score . Can some person estimate my score because neither the Barron's book nor the CD gives the actual score

Quantative scores = Problem Solving = 42 % , DS = 61 % , overall = 51 %

Verbal score = RC = 86 % , CR = 72 % , SC= 26 % , overall = 60 %

Also GMATclub does not have barron's in score estimator

Can anyone help me?

So far I've done 3 CATs test, 2 from GMAT Prep and 1 from Manhattan. However, the score I've got from the first two CATs (GMAT Prep) are like these..

CAT 1 (GMAT Prep) : score 580 (Q45 V25)
CAT 2 (GMAT Prep) : score 530 (Q44 V20)
CAT 3 (Manhattan) : score 670 (Q46 V36)

I admit that from the second to third test, I tried to boost up my RC and CR. However, the 3rd time raw score I got (which is Manhattan) doesn't differ much from the first 2. My first CAT, I've got 15 incorrect for Quant (3 incorrect from the first 10 questions) and 17 incorrect for Verbal (2 incorrect from the first 10).
My second CAT, I've got 14 incorrect in Quant (with 5 incorrect in the first 10 and I screwed up not answering the last question) and 20 incorrect for Verbal (I forgot to write down how many incorrect i got from the first 10)

Then I just took the 3rd CAT today - Manhattan. The raw score is 16 incorrect in each part, and I've got 6 incorrect from the first 10 in both. So, I'm not sure how accurate it is. Can I rely on the result of my last test? I mean I'm happy with the result cuz I never score this much before but I just want to make sure if I'm actually better.

Hi Ja,

Hopefully, your score boost is the real deal. Occasionally I will see a student hit a score that they have a hard time replicating, but it is certainly not typical to see that kind of jump just from switching from GMATPrep to ours. Student scores are usually fairly similar from one to the other.

As for the "raw scores," this has to do with the adaptive nature of the GMAT. Your score doesn't depend on how many you get right. At every level, you will end up missing quite a few problems. In fact, even at the 700 level, you will find that you are missing roughly 40% of the problems. What boosts your score is getting more difficult problems correct. Your actual raw scores are the numbers you included after each scaled (200-800) score. On our exam, your verbal raw score greatly exceeded your performance on the two GMATPrep exams. This probably means that you were getting more of the difficult problems correct.

You can learn more about the scoring algorithm if you sit in on one of our free previews, or attend class 1 of our 9-week course as a trial. In either case, you will see a presentation all about how the test is scored and what it means for you as a test-taker.

I hope this helps!

- The GMAT Prep Software is the BEST source by far. Before taking tests from other source, you have to reinstall the GMAT Prep as many times as possible. When you feel many questions are repeated, you should change to other source.
- MGMAT Tests are evry long. They are much longer than the real one. So don't panic if you finish any section and you still had 6 questions left.

When you say our tests are long, do you mean that you feel the problems take longer to complete? They certainly have the same number of problems.

If anyone is having this difficulty (with our tests or any others), it is important not to allow yourself to time out. One of the most important skills the GMAT tests is your ability to stay on top of time. For most people, this means guessing randomly on some of the toughest-looking problems to avoid falling behind. If you leave the last 6 problems blank, you will be hit with a stiff score penalty!
