Hi all,

For those who have taken both GMATPrep and the official GMAT test, do you find GMATPrep considerably easier than the official one?

I just completed the GMATPrep (version1 test1) yesterday as a pre-study test and I got 690. How would you discount the score on GMATPrep compare with the real one?

Thanks!

Hey guys,

I have 9 days to my exam and want to take GMAT PREP tests. But now I find this thread in which three different versions of GMAT PREP are uploaded (or linked). Please let me know whether these three applications have different question pool (or few repeated questions). Are they worthy to take all 6 exams completely?

I download with flashget successfully, try this software. And, the download isn't resume-able so don't disconnect your connection or pause the download.

Guys, here is the official link:
http://www.mba.com/mba/TheGMAT/Download ... nSoftware/

Once you register at mba.com, you can download the GMATPrep test. At mba.com you also have an option to place order for a free CD with this test (provided you have confirmed your GMAT dates).

Is there a discussion thread where GMAT prep questions are discussed?

I have certain doubts in the verbal section, was curious to know if we already have a thread where the GMAT prep q's are discussed or should i be individually posting them in the verbal forum?


We do not, though it is a good idea to start one. If you have time - that would be very helpful and I am sure would warrant quite a few kudos :-)
You can use google or forum search - that's what the most do right now.




Wondering how this would be possible. Does GMATPrep allow people to go back to the questions they answered wrong (ie, then someone could post specific questions)?

GMAT Prep has more than 1,000 questions in it, so the best way is to create a single thread that has a collection of all gmat prep questions by either searching for the "gmat prep" keyword or by posthing them from your experience.... and starting that way.

Please help.

Hi, Mba.com provides these 2 mock tests only, which they name as GMATPrep tests. These tests are very similar to actual GMAT tests.

I'm not sure which diagnostic test are you referring to. The details on one which is provided by GMAT club can be found below.

Re: GMATPrep (GMAT Prep) & PowerPrep (Power Prep) Free Tests [#permalink] New post 13 Apr 2010, 00:00
Hello everyone,

I took the earlier version of the GMATprep test last night and got a 760 (q49 v45). I did recognize a couple of verbal questions from the OG but i still had to rethink the answer, so I don't think my score was inflated in that way. However, do you guys think the scoring algorithm and the general difficulty of the earlier version is the same as the current version of GMATprep and the real thing?

I'm only asking this because I keep getting 690-700 on my MGMAT CATs and I'm struggling with the quant (43-47 so far). I know that MGMAT is supposed to be harder but I just want to make sure I'm not inflating my confidence here.

I've also been reading on the forums that the real GMAT is getting harder than it used to be (not talking about deflated percentiles, talking about actual difficulty of questions) so that got me worried.

Thanks in advance.

GMATPrep 1 vs. GMATPrep2 [#permalink] New post 13 Apr 2010, 11:24
Has anyone discussed the grading between the two? I understand that GMATPrep itself uses the same algorithm to calculate a score as the real deal, but for some reason, my GMATPrep1 score just seems to be lower than my GMATPrep 2 scores, for several times now. Anyone has the same issue?

can someone please clarify:

from what i've gathered from this test, each gmat prep contains 2 cat's and you can retake each of them without seeing repeat questions?

so this means...

1) gmat prep version 1: 2 cat's
2) gmat prep version 2: 2 cat's
3) retake gmat prep version 1: 2 cat's (all brand new q's?)
4) retake gmat prep version 2: 2 cat's (all brand new q's?)
= total of 8 cat's with unrepeated questions?

thank you. i'm trying to plan out my study schedule and it definitely makes a difference how many gmat prep cat's of unrepeated questions there are.

also, the answers to the following questions would be VERY helpful to myself and others trying to figure out the difference between gmat prep version 1, gmat prep version 2, and powerprep:


1) is there any overlap between gmat prep version 2 and version 1?
2) is there any overlap between gmat prep version 2 and powerprep?
3) is there any overlap between gmat prep version 2 and og 12, og verbal (2nd ed.), or og quantitative (2nd ed.)?

4) is there any overlap between gmat prep version 1 and powerprep?
[i think the answer is YES, so how much overlap?]
5) is there any overlap between gmat prep version 1 and og 12, og verbal (2nd ed.), or og quantitative (2nd ed.)? [i think the answer is YES, so how much overlap?]

6) is there any overlap between powerprep and og 12, og verbal (2nd ed.), or og quantitative (2nd ed.)? [i think the answer is YES, so how much overlap?]

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 :-)



Another solution that users of new macs (those who have an intel processor) can use is to download "parallels" which turns your mac into a PC and then to open PC software in parallels.

How indicative is GMATPrep V1 as compared to GMATPrep V2? [#permalink] New post 11 May 2010, 02:13
Hi All,

I'd like to know if the earlier GMATPrep (V1) is as good as the current version in terms of indicating your score on the actual GMAT.

Thanks.
