:idea: Let's work together as a community to create world's best GMAT Diagnostic test by creating, refining, and improving diagnostic questions.

We have started this project with the Quant section to help GMAT test takers understand their weaknesses better. The test is free - please take it. If you have any questions or suggestions - post them here. Also, the idea of the test is to improve it based on the feedback of the community - here is how you can share your thoughts:
1. Take the questions in the forum and make sure you are using the timer so the difficulty is accurately established
2. Provide verbal feedback by replying to this thread
3. Suggest question types to be included in this test - please provide examples if possible (we'll take care of creating the questions)
4. Finally - get others to take this test and provide their feedback

How to use the Diagnostic Test - The Diagnostic Test is setup to allow you to test you as thoroughly or as quickly as you would prefer. The questions are arranged in sections in an increasing difficulty order - the first question is always 600-650 level, mid question is 700 level, and the last question is 750 level. If you are in a hurry, you can take either all easy or medium, or all hard questions only. Instead of 45 questions, you can only take 15 and leave the rest for later.

Taking the test
You should spend a maximum of 90 minutes answering 45 questions or if you are taking fewer then plan to spend on average 2 minutes per question


Where are the questions from?
The questions have been developed by very experienced and high scoring GMAT Club members

Are the questions copyrighted?
Yes, but you can post and distribute them to benefit other test takers - please give credit to GMATClub for the hard work our members put into this test

Hi

Thanks for posting the test. I am about to start with my GMAT prep. I took the test and got 35/45. How good/bad is it for starters?

Also, should I start with the OG first or Manhattan GMAT ( I dont have one yet!)??

Apologies if this isnt the right forum to ask such questions...

Hi BB,

Thanks for the post. I'm new to this forum. Do you also have similar diagnostic test for verbal? I had taken gmat 4 years back. 680 (less than 2 months prep. only OG, kaplan800, and gmatprep cat). I didn't apply to many schools as I was disappointed. Now I'm decided to give it another shot. Here's my study plan. Please advice.

1) OG12
2) Kaplan premier 2011 + adaptive tests
3) MGMAT online tests & Q bank (shall buy online)
4) MGMAT SC,CR,RC guide (I've some old copies)
5) PowerScore CR as reference
5) GMAT prep cat
6) GmatPill online

Can I forgo few of the books if I take GmatPill? I've a demanding job.
I'm weak in verbal and AWA.

Engg. graduate. 9+ years exp.
Intend to take the exam in May end.
target score: 750

Please advise.

Regards,
Avi

I just took the diagnostic test....some of the questions I did are different that those listed here in the "Index of Diagnostic Test Questions, Explanations, and Discussion" and the thread containing all of the answers and their ratings.

examples are 40,43, 45(wording), 24 (wording in statement 1)

explanation?

Hi,

I am new to the club. Found some very interesting posts. I gave GMAT prep one to see where I stand. I got a 610 on it with 45 in quant (33 attempts) and 29 in verbal (31 attempts). I would like to some insights into how to go about it. I want a score of 750+ in the real GMAT and need to know what are the best books to learn and practice to improve my accuracy and my speed.

Best Regards

Great diagnostic, really helped me assess some weaknesses in inequalities & overall calculation speed. Didn't know it existed till I saw the free July 3/4th tests.
Just a suggestion, you should have this more upfront to highlight to new joinees. Thanks bb!

Re: GMAT Diagnostic Test - Quest for Best GMAT Diagnostic Test [#permalink] New post 24 Jul 2011, 09:38
I just worked on the 1st 30 questions of this test and was surprised to see the following results:

score on the 10 (600) range questions = 9/10
Score on the 10 (700) range questions = 3/10
score on the 10 (750) range questions = 7/10

Maybe my mind is processing the 700 questions incorrectly, just not realising how tough they are and so they require more thinking before solving.
