Question about MGMAT CATs [#permalink] New post 03 Dec 2009, 06:16
Question:

I am starting my preparation for the GMAT with the MGMAT math series. I would like to focus on the quantitative sections of the CATs (Just taking the Quant sections) and then go back and do the verbal sections later on. I don’t want to waste the verbal sections of the CATs without any preparation.

1- Do the MGMAT CATs (Kaplan CATs also) allow one to complete the sections separately? How does it work?
2- Do you think this is a good strategy?

Love this forum! Thanks for the help everyone.. :)

1- No. When you take the CAT, you can't get a selective section score. Most prep company tests let you pause, but to get the assessment and score, you must complete the test.

2- No. You have plenty of resources for questions (GMATClub, OG, Offical Verbal/Math, etc.) Use your practice test for full assessments, and use problem for individual sections.

We recommend taking a diagnostic test to come up with your study plan. Simply studying w/o taking a diagnostic can be useful, but knowing your short comings and using targeted studying typically nets better results.

Best of luck,

Hi,

In our practice tests, it is possible to exit out of the test and resume it at a later date, (when you exit one of our practice test you are given three options, the second of which says "exit the test and resume at a later time,") however we very strongly recommend that you take the test in its entirety. As Mohater wrote, the practice tests are a good way to practice the actual experience of taking the GMAT. They prepare you for having to sit for four hours with two 8-minute breaks and answer questions.

In order to prepare yourself for the exam, however, it is also important to learn the content behind the exam, and to do practice drills and problems. It sounds like you're already doing this on the quant side. To practice just the quant in a more exam-like setting, I would suggest using a stopwatch and timing yourself answering a specific number of Official Guide problems. For example, pick out 20 problems and give yourself 40 minutes to do them all. This is good practice for the problems themselves as well as for timing.

If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!

Best,
