I am thinking of buying access to GMAT club challanges...I have a question, the 25 challenges were released on 01/01/2006. hasn't there been any development after that...what about the weekly challenges administered after 01/01/2006 ? Do we have to purchase the up to date challanges separately?

The Veritas CATs are a group of tests packaged from other companies - Arco, 800test, GMATPrep - just in case anyone is wondering.

Hi,
Do you confirm that the GMAT Challenges are CAT?
Do they include verbal also?

Thanks,

GMAT challenges are not adaptive and they are only quants.

Disgruntled by GMAT Club math explanations [#permalink] New post 04 Nov 2007, 14:31

I just bought the GMAT club math exams and am disappointed with the explanations. On many of them they just run through the answer without giving an explanation to how they got certain parts within the process. I don’t see how I am to learn from my mistakes when they don’t properly explain how they got their answers. For $80 I was expecting more.

I just did a few of these 800score tests and also took the real GMAT. Unfortunately the 800score tests are not a good indication of your real score. First, the math is ALOT harder on 800score than the real test. I was consistently not finishing about 3-5 questions on 800score, whereas I finished the real test with about 2 min left. However, the math does help you learn tricks and beat the real challenging problems (which you will only see if you are in the 46-50 range). I felt the verbal was way too easy on 800score. I consistently made 46+ and then made a 36 on the real test. On the GMAT practice tests I was consistently making 42-45, so 800score was pretty easy. Overall I was getting around 700-720 on the 800score and I got a 680 on the real test. I personally wouldn't recommend the 800score tests. Hope this helps.

I think that you are supposed to post questions here and get answers on the forum. That seems kind of inconvenient to me, however.

The Princeton CATs are good only if you are in the 600 range and want to get to 700 but not necessarily higher than that. If you are a 700+ scorer already, those tests will be on no benefit. The Q in particular is ridiculously easier than the real thing. Again, that's for high scorers. If you are an average scorer, this might be a good start.

I just tried the MGMAT test #1. all I can say is "good god!"
the quant is harder than gmatclub.com's challenge problem set. Most of my questions are 700-800 level and I missed nearly half of them. And I completely mismanaged my time and didn't finish the last 4-5 problem (i bubbled them).

I think I barely missed any problem on GMATprep's math.

Kaplan is ridiculous. I scored a 570 on one of their practice CAT tests (after scoring a 660 and a 700 on the official ones). I took the actual GMAT a week later and scored a 710. I get that the Kaplan questions are harder, but scoring that low on a practice test almost shattered my confidence.

I have a question in regard to study materials. I have a solid foundation on content as far as quant goes but does anyone know of a good book (that's readable within a few weeks) that focuses strictly on strategy, such as guessing strategies, how do better at attacking DS problems, adaptive exam strategies, how to decipher a certain strategy given a certain problem, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 8-)

Hi.

I have used GPrep, Kaplan, PR and Manhattan tests...during my previous attempt.
I am looking for some representative practice tests. Can anyone enlighten me with few good practice tests?
How are practice tests provided by www.catprep.com ?
I need representative practice, in particular, for verbal.

Thank You.

I would strongly suggest you to go for MGMAT then. Of all the online tests available, this is the best one and probably a value for money. 6+1 tests for $18. Their explanations are good and elaborated. You may even learn few tricks of how to deal with certain kind of questions.
