Great product! I haven't taken a post-GMATClub Test diagnostic to say conclusively whether it's helping me get results, but it certainly feels like it is. I haven't done any of the verbals, so all of these thoughts are strictly on the Quant side.
There are a few things that I think could make it even better:
- A pause button. I did some research on this and it's been mentioned a few times, but really no definitive way-ahead on this one, it seems. I get that pausing compromises the 'realism' of the mock, but let's face it-stuff happens at home/in the library/at work that wouldn't happen on the real thing. having to miss the last 3 questions b/c a friend popped in unannounced is basically a waste of a test.
-On that note, it seems when I run out of time on a test, it "switches to study mode." That's a neat idea, but the problem is it doesn't seem like I can determine my score after that. I ran out of time on the LAST questoin, which was stupid I know, but I felt like I still should have been able to see my score.
- Speaking of scores, it'd be nice if there was some formal explanation of what these scores mean. It seems (i HOPE) that there's no intended correlation between the Q score on the gmatclub tests
and the official q-score. I have been using them to track my progress solely within the GMATClub tests
, but it'd be nice if there was a help file or something explaining what the # means and how I ought to interpret it.
- It would be nice if I could see how much time a question took in the question screen when reviewing instead of having to go back to the question list. Also, numbering each question within the test in addition to the unique question number (e.g., M01-01) would make review a little more smooth
- My scores have gone up dramatically in the later tests. I was averaging Q33 in the earlier tests, but juts walked away with a Q43. I'd say I'm just getting that much smarter, but i notice i'm getting more 600 level questions. I obviously don't know how the algorithm works, but I just wanted to note this if it was of any interest to the devs.
- A way to list all the questions i've flagged for review would be helpful. This seems like something that might exist already--perhaps I just missed it.
- Metrics (a la MGMAT's mock tests, maybe) would be useful to me, although I am sure this isn't universal.
- A 'report an error in this question' button might be useful. I occasionally see a typo or something, pretty minor but something I assume you'd want to fix. I take these tests right before work so I don't think to note it and report it via the help feature, but if there was a button w/in the question review screen, it'd be easier
But anyway, this is a great product and a far better value than a lot of your competitors' products! thanks for all your hard work GMATClub.
