Thanks Josh.
Just to clarify - you want the person to take the practice CAT test within 7 days of taking the GMAT (before or after) but you will have the opportunity to do that for a few weeks, correct? (meaning if I take the GMAT in 2 weeks from now, I can take the CAT in a week or 10 days from now).

In my opinion, it is a great opportunity to make the GMAT cost $150 vs $250.
If you were thinking/waiting/planning to take the test in a month or later on, you may want to set the date in a few weeks and get the $100 rebate.
(By the way, what is the means of refunding? paypal?)

Thanks for the questions.

Yes, you can sign up today if you are taking the test in, say, a month. And I will contact you a week before your scheduled exam to say that you have two weeks to take our CAT (one before test and one week after).

No one will get paid without producing a score report from the actual GMAT.

We can mail people a check. There will be no "refund" as we are not affiliated with the actual GMAT. Though, yes, it is a nice way to get paid to study for the exam.

For those who take our test after taking the actual GMAT (and yes we want you folks too), we want to make sure you are incentivized -- so if your score on our tests is not within 120 points of your actual score you will not get paid.

Hopefully helpful,
Josh

Yeh this seems like a great way to subsidise the cost of my exam. Anyway how do they choose participants? I'm taking the exam next week and would like to know if I can take part.

Thanks bb. I also wanted to incorporate their practice exam into my study program (GMAT is on Monday).


Good Luck!!!
Take a good rest over the weekend and prepare to fight for every single question on the exam; give it your best but don't get carried away. There is a time to move on. I spent 4 mins on one of my quant questions and never cracked it, so if you don't figure it out in 3 mins, probably not worth it. It could be an experimental question and then you wasted a whole bunch of time.

I'm having a nervous breakdown right now (my test is tomorrow at 12:30pm).

I'm currently taking my "8-minute-break" between quant and verbal.

Anyway, I'd like to shed some light on the Knewton practice test.

I signed up through the first link that BB posted; then in a couple of days, Josh emailed me with a link. The link doesn't seem to be any special link, but simply a link that leads you to Knewton's GMAT website. From there, I signed up for an account and took my practice test. I believe that's all you need to do (though I don't know if the same will qualify if Josh did not send an email out to each individual user). I took the exam and that was it...until tomorrow - D-DAY, baby.

One question to piggy-back on this thread, does anyone seem to know the correlation between Knewton's free GMAT test and the real one? Do we have a large enough of a sample pool to know the correlation?


Hey don't worry so much man. Before an important event (such as the GMAT), I try to keep a 'I don't give a ****' attitude. This definitely helps me relax a bit. In any case you shouldn't care so much about the GMAT. What's the worst that could happen? Your grade isn't as good as expected? Well then you can simply retake it.
When thinking about it in these terms (as opposed to OMG I ONLY HAVE 1 CHANCE !!!!111111one), I feel substantially more relaxed.

Sorry for any lag.

Here's the process.

1) Sign up on GMAT Club.
2) I'll send you an email within 7 days of when you told me you're going to take the real GMAT.
3) Signup for the Knewton GMAT course's free trial (with the same email address you gave me when you signed up for GMAT club) and take a CAT.
4) Send me via pdf or via snail mail your official score report.
5) Every Thurs night we will verify all the score reports we got in that week, and make sure that effort was expended on our CATs.
6) We'll paypal money to your email address on Friday. If have a paypal account you can transfer to your bank account easily. If you don't have an account you can just create a free one and claim your money.

Any other questions?

Here's the snail mail address:

Knewton
c/o Josh Anish
19 Union Square West
12th floor
New York, NY 10003

Cheers,
Josh

Some one from Josh's team sent me $100 via paypal. Thanks Josh for the quick turnaround. They processed my $100 in 2 days i think.

Thanks


What was the correlation between your Knewton score and the official score?


I was off 20 points but i attribute it to the fact that i wasn't putting in 100% effort. In reality, it is the only test that i finished with 15 minutes to spare.

Interesting. What's the objective? Seems like they want to assess their test w.r.t actual GMAT.

Is it only a test or does the test taker also need to provide some more information relevant to the actual test? Ofcourse I do not mean the actual questions? :-)
