Yes, you can purchase them from GMAC here: http://www.mba.com/mba/store/ProductInfo?SKU=1103260X

Each set consists of 3 tests and costs $25. There is some overlap with OG 10 and most of the questions are not very difficult.
These are on the lower spectrum of value when compared to the Official Guide or OG Quant and OG Verbal. However, if you live in a country without access to the Official Guide materials, this may not be a bad choice. otherwise, OG 12 has 900 retired questions and these tests 329 for the same amount of money.


I own the set that has tests 14, 31, and 55.
Here is what each of the PDF documents contains and also - there are no explanations!

Test 14 Contents
  • 2 AWA Essays
  • CR section with 16 questions (25 mins)
  • DS section with 20 questions (25 mins)
  • RC section with 23 questions (25 mins)

  • CR section with 16 questions (25 mins)
  • PS section with 16 questions (25 mins)

Here is more feedback by Bigoyal:

are-the-gmat-paper-tests-any-good-79589.html

What I noticed is:
1. The paper test starts with easier questions and level of difficulty increases as you reach the end (This is applicable to each section separately) .

2. For PS, there were two sections (with 16 questions in each). One was little difficult as compared to the other, with focusing more on word problems.

3. Quant was easy as compared to CAT tests (except for the last few questions in each section). Verbal was comparatively similar to CAT tests.
Note: My observations here can be flawed, because I'm quite good at Quant, but not very good at verbal. So its possible that in CAT I would have never came across the toughest verbal questions.

4. Negative marking of 0.25 points for each incorrectly attempted question. For each correct one, you get 1 point. No -ve or +ve marking for un-attempted question.

5. It seems, paper format stresses more on Time, rather then difficulty (As in verbal we have 80 mins for 61 questions and Quant 75 mins for 52 questions)

6. Although answer key has been provided, but explanation for answers is not available :( .

7. Few questions overlapping with OG11, though number of overlapping questions is very less.

Overall a good practice, specially for timing each section. I'm planning to practice on other test papers as well.

Thanks bb!

So I think in presence of 1000 SC, Brutal, GMAT prep doc, OG 12,11, and All MGMATs it will not be a good idea to purchase those.

Thanks for reply again, decision taken!! :)

Has anyone here on community used ETS paper tests? I have heard that many of the questions are from OGs, so is it worth purchasing those ETS paper tests?

Please give your feedback here if you have used.

Thank you!

Personally, no. I used them and I thought the exams were too easy. I think it also depends on your current level. The tests are good for warm-up or going over basic fundamentals.

There is some overlap with the OG 10.

See this thread for discussion: has-anybody-practiced-retired-gmat-paper-tests-from-mba-com-45891.html
See this for the description: gmat-paper-tests-worth-it-or-useful-84064.html

Keep in mind, these don't have any explanations!!!
