I took a sample gmat club math test earlier today. Given that it's not CAT, how reliable are the scores? I noticed that even when i got 700 level questions right, the next one would be 600, which would never happen on the actual GMAT.

Sorry if this question has been asked before or belongs in another forum.

Thanks.

No, they're not computer adaptive.

According to this thread, the GMATClub tests are indeed adaptive. I have not used this newer version, so cannot comment on adaptive engine's reliability (hopefully, someone else will provide a better response than mine). But the system is most likely legitimate. GMATClub tests are of extremely high quality. And since you're probably going to answer and review all of the questions anyway, it's probably not that big of an issue.

I took the Gmatclub Free tests (Quant and Verbal) yesterday. I scored 99 percentile in Both (V47 and Q47 or something more than that :roll: ). Now, being into the preparation for around 1.5 months, scoring something like that took me by surprise! :shock: I really want to know, whether the free Test standards are similar to the GmatClub actual test series or the free ones are a lot easier!!

Dear Club members

I gave GMATClub Verbal test yesterday and scored V39(90%). I solved 32 ques correctly out of 41.
I would like to know how accurate GMATClub test scoring is?

The only hurdle between me and my success is verbal. 3 weeks prior to GMATClub test I scored V31 in MGMAT test. Later I revised my basics, solved good number of problems and gave GMATClub test.
Kindly suggest some good tests to judge my current level.

Every test company has a different scoring algorithm, GC tests are very hard, adaptive and accurate. I suggest taking gmat prep mock.

This is an old thread but FYI for the guys coming through here:

The FREE GMATClub test is not adaptive. The Adaptive GMAT tests are the real deal and they are incredibly difficult: same principles, just much, much trickier. I just bought a subscription and had I known they were this tricky I would have done so months ago. Good luck.

Nope, this is not a old thread and started after the launching of New adaptive gmat tests.
