Obviously I'm a little biased here, but I'm going to go ahead and second the other poster by saying Manhattan as well :wink:

I've been involved with the question-writing process for some of our practice CATs and I can say that it's very rigorous. We do our best to stay focussed on the essential ideas that pop up frequently in actual GMAT problems, adding in GMAT-like twists along the way. Every problem written for our tests is viewed by a committee of other Manhattan Instructors who analyze the problem for its content, difficulty, language, trap answers, and, most important, fidelity to the actual test. It's not uncommon for one of our problems to be re-written several times before it's perfected and can make its way to one of our tests.

Anyway, it's an extremely thorough process that leads to excellent practice CATs.

Cheers,
MS

Hi Mark
Thanx for the reply, I have tried its free test and have found that quite nice. However I have one question, I understand that after the tests it gives a detailed assessment report, however arent there any detailed explanations to the answers? I do not see any detailed explanations to the answers in the review of the free test I have taken.
Cheers

Indeed, there are explanations. After you log in to your Student Center on manhattangmat.com, click the "CAT Exams & Diagnostics" tab and look for the "Review" link next to CAT 1. Under the "problem list" column you'll see another link that says "review" and from there you'll be taken to a list of the problems you saw. Click the problem name to see it again and you'll also see a "View Explanation" link.

Add another vote to Manhattan

Here are my takeaways for Manhattan CAT

Quantitative:
> The questions are more time-consuming and calculation-heavy. I think, however, that the makers of the Manhattan GMAT purposely do this to strengthen our timing.
> The questions are very similar with the GMAT in terms of placing "traps" in the questions. Case in point, I encountered a MGMAT CAT quant question that asked to determine the number of hours before the tank is filled up 1/2 of its capacity. That's very GMAT-esque. I and give kudos to MGMAT for that.
> The explanations are crisp and straight to the point. Matter of fact, the explanations are narrated in such a way that reading them feels like a real teacher is explaining them.

Verbal:
> Verbal questions are very hard to imitate in my opinion. See, MGMAT verbal is a bit easier than GMAT questions. I don't know why. Hope someone could take chime in on this.

Overall, I find MGMAT very very vital.
