Hey,
I have read that I can take each of the 2 GmatPrep simulations 2-3 times, without getting the same questions twice. Meaning that I actually have 4-6 official simulations!!!
Is this true? :?
In addition, I Googled and found that there are several companies that offer their own GMAT simulations:
1) PrepWizard.com
2) 800Score.com
3) catprep.com

Do you know them? Can you tell me which one are better?
Thank's :help2

Hey,

From my experience its true.
You can take each test a few times (2-3) without getting the same questions.
Since it is an adaptive algorithm, just like in the actual test, The questions pool is much larger than the 37+41 questions that you get.
I believe that each one of the 2 official tests have a different questions pool.

About the second question, I can only help with "800Score" since I bought their full pack.
I must say I was disappointed with their quantitative and verbal questions, since they are not too bad but they are built in a different style comparing to the actual test, so in my opinion it is not too helpful. But you can take their free demo and decide for your self. I'm sure that all the sites that you have mentioned have a free demo, so take advantage of it.

My ranking:
#1 GMATPREP - of course... (you can indeed take it 4-6 times).
#2 MGMAT- The same way of thinking as GMATPREP :punk
#3 PrepWizard- I've heard about them only 5 days ago, but their free demo is fuc$#%$% good.
#4 KAPLAN and Princeton

800score.com is to be avoided at all costs! Not even remotely like the real test. Haven't heard of those other two sites you mentioned.

In general, it is best to stick with the well-known test prep companies...they're well-known for a reason. GMATPrep is best, then Princeton Review. If you're a little masochistic, then try Kaplan or Manhattan GMAT. :P Both are a lot harder.

I recently took a GMATPrep test and got a score of 46 and 42 for a 720 total. However, it said I missed 16 math questions and 9 verbal. Can this be right?
