Manhattan GMAT question banks [#permalink] New post 30 Aug 2010, 06:31
I ordered the manhattan gmat books and have been going through the problems. I registered the books online, which gave me access to the questions banks that are divided by topic. Each topic has 25 non-adaptive questions, and i'm freaking out because i'm missing like 10 out of 25. They're reasonably tough questions, and it looks like they're pretty indicative of actual GMAT questions.

I'm taking the GMAT on October 23rd (2nd time taking it, got a 700 first time, but quant was only 78%), so i have some time, but i'm freaking out. Any advice on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

clearly freaking out will not help.. the manhattan qns are generally harder than the gmat (so I am led to believe), so the idea would be to keep working on your weaknesses

Take a full length MGMAT test and see what you get - that's a much better indicator of your performance than question banks.

I think the purpose of the question banks is just to practice whenever you have time or when you are done with a specific book. Yes the banks are a bit harder but dont freak out as CATs performance is the nearest indicator of your abilities. Also, you can retake the question banks multiple times during your study. So utilize these banks with planning.

My suggestion on the ManG QBank is not to time these extensively. You can take a few timed ones but most importantly go through a set of questions and see how you can solve each of those under 2 mins. Just work this out in your mind and look for the coolest way to do it. There is always a run-of-mill way to do it and a "smart" way. See if you can decode the smart way.

Always remember any question in GMAT can be done under 2 mins and so can any question in ManG (mostly). I think that is the best way to derive value out of this question bank.
Use this forum to get to more easier ways to solve problems.

Cheers

Correct me if I'm wrong, but since the MGMAT questions banks are non-adaptive, the questions never change. So once you're done with the 25 question set, that's pretty much it.

Yup. Non-adaptive and once you are done you can reset it but you will get the same questions again.
