: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

I got 21 (61%) on my my diagnostic test. Then I got 26 (70%) on m25 and 30 (81%) on m01. So, I think you can improve fast too. Don't worry.

Hi,
I took the GMAT recently and received a score of 730. Your math test was very helpful in preparing me for the real thing. Kudos to all of you for putting together such a (dare I say it) beautiful array of math questions that was key to helping me perform so well.

Unfortunately, I am not that good at writing math questions! But I will submit at least a few verbal questions you guys can use later on. This is my own small way of giving back;

Arya

I am about 2 months preparing into GMAT and took this test today. Surprisngly I find my errors are mostly on questions at 600-650 level and most of the 700/750 ones are correct. Is there anything to interpret, like taking easy questions too lightly and missing some details?

I think you should give the questions you got wrong a closer inspection. If it was a careless mistake, you might be taking easy questions too lightly. If an error had to do with a concept tested in the question, you'll have to review that specific concept. It's also a good idea to use an Error log (if you are not using one yet).

Thank you for the diagnostic, it allowed me to evaluate where I stand in the 600-700 level questions.

What would you suggest if I get only about 1/4 of these questions correctly?

The level ranges from ~600 to ~750. You can see these approximate level figures in discussions dedicated to each of the questions. See the links in the top post (each question has its own discussion).

I hope this test helps you identify your weak areas and work on improving them :).

I would second that. Though I'm not an OG expert, I hear people complain about low difficulty level of OG questions quite often.
