Worked through 5 of my Kaplan CATs and took the GMATPrep CAT last week. For fear of exhausting the GMATPrep one, can anyone recommend any free CATs out there? I found a Power Prep, and I have a bunch of old paper ones - if there are no other free ones, I will just purchase something that's not too pricey, but I wanted to check out my options first.
Also, I know that Kaplan CATs are not popular around here, but if worse comes to worse, should I just complete more of these? Will they totally ruin my self esteem? lol
I think ManhattanGmat.com and PrincetonReview.com both have 1 free CAT each. be careful thought these probably won't be as reflective of your achievement. Esp the Manhattan Quant can be brutal in 75mins.
I haven't tried an MGMAT tests myself yet, but I have access to all six from purchasing most of the MGMAT books (although you can get access to all 6 from any 1 purchase). I've heard good things about them in terms of what you can learn, not so much in terms of the tests being an accurate predicter. Maybe give that a try and if you like it, buy one of their books and get access to the others as well.
Thats a good point actually. Plenty of people who buy the whole set of MGMAT books only use one of the books (obviously) to unlock the tests. I bought a couple of these books second hand and the tests were unused (the book was unregistered). So look around, you might pick up a secondhand book (altough they are inexpensive as is) for cheap.
So when some people state the inaccuracy of some CATs, they either mean that you will tend to score higher on the real thing/GMATPrep or lower - what is the consensus for the MGMAT ones?
Because I just took the free one and got 620 - first time I actually got over 600, so I'm pretty excited But I did feel like I guessed on a lot of q's, I didn't feel too confident in the Quant section, and Verbal seemed a little confusing too, so I have no idea how I got a 620.
Also..Is there anyone out there that is comfortable with selling me access to the rest of the MGMAT tests via their prep books for a lower price?
I found the PR verbal to be on par with actual gmat & mgmat quant to be slightly more difficult (some more so than others) than actual gmat. but I think these two are the closest other than the priceless GMATPrep.
