Does the reinstalling works for all GMAT prep1, prep 2 as well as the power prep?


Yes (make sure you delete the data folder besides the uninstall). You may also be able to reset the tests, but not sure if there is much of a difference between the two.

GMAT Prep "Reset" - Reinstall
1.Go to C:\Program Files\GMATPrep\Exams
2.Within the Exams folder, you should see a Practice Test 1.log and a Practice Test 2.log
3.Delete or I'd say move to other location both logs*
4.Relaunch the GMAT Prep software, and it should show you that both practice exams are now Not Attempted, and you can take them again.


For those using Windows Vista
I just discovered that GMATPrep creates a folder and log file at following location:

C:\Users\{user_name}\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\GMATPrep\exams

{user_name} will vary from system to system. Otherwise, you can directly open your user folder from desktop and navigate to \AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\GMATPrep\exams

*Make sure you have hidden files visible



Very good advice for Vista users. Thank you. I use Vista as well. However, there is no info about GPrep in the \AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files folder. Instead, I found the info directly in the program folder on disk C.

C:\Program Files\GMATPrep\exams

If someone has similar problem, try this path.

GMATPrep - Not able to get rid of previous tests [#permalink] New post 25 Nov 2009, 12:16
Hi Club,

I've been having a problem with the GMATPrep application lately. I've installed it several times, erased the logs from my computer's memory, and chosen to start new tests but for the past week it has kept my previous 2 attempts and not allowed me to re-try the tests. Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks,
SW

In other words, it won't let me fully complete the exams - it just says they are unfinished no matter what I do. I've done them several times each and never experienced this problem before.

I just started using the GMAT Prep old version and I noticed the essay topics are the same.

Is that right? Or have I messed up the installation folders, which I don't think it's unlikely.

Hi - I have test scheduled in next few days. I wish to re take the GMAT prep tests 1 and 2.

Do I need to go to mba.com and download the gmatprep software again or even with the current version of download i can chnage the setting so that I can get new questions. I wish to avoid the repeat questions as much as possible. I will really appreciate the quick help on this as I have test in few days.

In my first attempt for 2 tests I did okish. I just wish to make sure that I am familiar with look, feel and diffculty of general GMAT questions.

3. Getting the Most out of GMAT Prep
Now there is a number of different strategies on how to use GMAT Prep tests most effectively. And the answer to which one is the best, of course is — it depends.
Most people agree that its good to keep one test till the end of the preparation process to use it as an accurate estimator of the GMAT score.

Though some people recommend to take it more than two times... one or two extra times in order to get new questions. Some real fans even go to the extent of squeezing all the life out of it by taking the test until they don't see any new questions. It's up to you to decide whether this is a good strategy for you. But if you ever want to take GMAT Prep more then twice here is how to do it:

GMAT Prep "Reset" - Reinstall
1.Go to C:\Program Files\GMATPrep\Exams
2.Within the Exams folder, you should see a Practice Test 1.log and a Practice Test 2.log
3.Delete or I'd say move to other location both logs*
4.Relaunch the GMAT Prep software, and it should show you that both practice exams are now Not Attempted, and you can take them again.

I tried this by deleting log files. It did not work. I just want to make sure that I need not to download the software from mba.com, right?

Then, as per post from BB i tried deleting the .dat (data files). Then on launching GMAT prep software, it start giving me error message and did not let me in.


Please advise..

I'm afraid if by any chance you deleted wrong files. Anyway, you can always uninstall and reinstall the software.

In my case I used to reset the test simply by using the reset feature. GMATPrep tests always gives a prompt if someone wants to restart the test or want to continue with the previous test.

Hello,
Does anyone knows the mechanism to check the questions and their corresponding explanations after attempting the test?

There must be a database. In case it is not stored in encrypted form, the entire question database much be readable.

Any pointers??

If you get an access to the entire question database, I think you should not post it on public forums else probably GMAC would call the act as "hacking" and "unethical" :P

Hey,

I see that some Mac users are finding Wine and Crossover a bit complicated to set up. I just found out about WineBottler and thought it was really easy to install GMATPrep, and it runs perfectly.

After installing Winebottler, you download GMATPrep and run the .exe file just as you would in Windows. Best of all, it's free :-)
