Disappointed with GMATPrep Exam Pack 1 [#permalink] New post 13 Oct 2013, 02:05
I bought the GMATPrep Exam Pack 1 hoping to have more realistic GMAT practice but was really disappointed because of the following issues:

1. Same SC question in Exam 3 and Exam 4 of Exam Pack 1 but with two different answers, one of which was obviously correct. In Exam 3, I marked E and got it correct but got same question in Exam 4 but got it incorrect and it displayed OA as D- the screenshot of the same I am attaching below. I am very much sure that the correct answer is E.

2. Same CR question repeated in Exam 4 at question 33 and 38. I am attaching the screenshot below. What was surprising was that the CR question was also there when I gave Exam 3.

3. Questions repeated in Exam 3 and Exam 4: Most of the questions were repeated in Exam 3 and Exam 4 even though I never retook anyone of 2 exams. I thought I will get different questions giving me more practice since the database is different for Exam 3 and Exam 4 as claimed by GMAC.

I request GMAC to look into the issues as it will not be good for the people buying GMATPrep Exam Pack 1. I am not being judgmental here but expressing my concerns to GMAC.

Thanks.

I have raised this issue with GMAC. Moreover, in my case when i went to check the responses of exam pack 3 then they were all gone. There was no response and my gmatprep software is showing that I didn't take the test. I emailed gmac about this and they said that they are aware of this issue but they don't know the time frame to fix it. Moreover, this is after even downloading the latest version of gmatprep software before I bought the exam pack1. Now 4 hours of hard work is gone I can't even see my responses.

Yeah very true. It happened to me also when I took Exam 3 and all my responses were gone after the new Software 2.2.315 installation. Fortunately, I had reviewed and noted down responses before I restarted my system and lost my responses for Exam 3. After this, I didn't take Exam 3 so as not to repeat the questions from Exam 3 and gave Exam 4 today but unfortunately I did not have a good practice with Exam 4 because most questions from Exam 3 were repeated.

I hope that issues get resolved as I trust GMAC and that it will come up with the resolved version. I really love the way GMAC sets the good and tricky questions. GMATPrep is the only authentic resource for GMAT so far.
