Hi all,

I attempted 2nd test of GMAT prep exam pack 1 first time today and found that there were at least 30% questions repeated from the 1st test of exam pack 1. So just to clarify that this was not a repeat test of test#1 , but it was a brand new test. Not sure why there was so much overlap of questions.

Has anybody experienced the same before?

Thanks,
Andy

No... and this is very odd. You should not have seen any repeats!

Akash,

It can happen but only under the following conditions. Let's say you take Exam 3 of Exam Pack 1 two or three times, and let's say you have not touched Exam 4 of Exam Pack 1. Now if you take Exam 4, you will see repeats from the two or three attempts you made with Exam 3. If you only took Exam 3 once, and then take Exam 4, there will not be any overlap between the two tests. I am pretty certain about this.

The main reason for this is that the database of questions that Exam Pack 1 draws from is quite small, about 200 questions in the quant pool shared between the two exams. This is why I recommend taking Exam 3 once, then Exam 4 and be done with Exam Pack 1.

Cheers,
Dabral

Thank you. That would make sense dabral
I assumed (dangerous to assume anything on GMAT) the user has take each test only once, so I guess the question is - did you take Test 3 (firs of EP1) multiple times?

Haha, I agree. Having been burned so many times by data sufficiency, I no longer assume anything.

Thanks bb and Dabral. You guessed it right guys. I did take gmat prep 3 couple of times before taking gmat prep 4. I assumed that they have different question bank on the backend, My bad.

Haha, I agree Dabral. This teaches me another lesson about GMAT.

Thanks,
Andy

Hi guys,

I just bought the Exam Pack 1 and I don't see my new tests (Exam 3 and 4) on my GMAT Prep Software. I have already activated and it tells me my content should be available on the home page- it isn't! Does anyone know what could be going on? I've relaunched the software a couple of times.

Thanks!

1. Try installing again.
2. In the installation screen, where it asks for activation code, there are three tabs. At tab 2, there is system information and a icon named Licence. Try clicking repair license or messing with settings there.
3. Your other best option is to contact mba.com support about it.

Hi.
I downloaded and activated exampack few days back. When i opened the exam page, i could see only 2 default exam.I was shocked for few seconds,but then i noticed that there's a drop down menu under the name 'default exam pack' which then provides u the option to select the exam pack 1.I just thought hat might be the case with you.

Regards,
Vardhaman

Hi,

I just gave the Exam 4 of the Exam Pack 1, and I have two concerns.

1. My score was 700 (Q 50, V 35, IR 8), which was a shock. I thought the Quant was pretty okay - only two incorrect out of the 37 questions and still scored 50. I wanted to know if this is normal in the real GMAT I know GMATPrep is the closest it gets to the real thing, but I was sure I would score 51 in Quant.

2. In verbal, only one question was incorrect in the first 15 questions - 11 questions incorrect overall. I was a bit disappointed to see V35, considering I have been scoring in the higher 30's in my other mocks.
Also I did see two questions in Verbal that I had already answered in Practice exam 3 - and I have only given exam 3 once.

I have my exam in couple of days and kind of let down by this score.
