So I've done about 4 CAT tests, including the free one.

I'm coming in for my second attempt on the GMAT. I've heard the GMATPrep can take at least one reset, if not more, and still throw out new questions.

How do the Manhattan CATs rate? Will they be able to supply me with new & tough questions?

Appreciate it.

Hello,

We have 6 practice tests on our website, so if you've only done 4 it would be best to do a new one.

As for the number of expected repeats, it depends a lot on where your score trajectory is in comparison to the last time you took the test. If you're scoring higher than you previously were, you might only run into one or two repeats per section (this has been the case for several of my students). But if your score is roughly what is was before, you may see a handful of repeats.

Basically, it boils down to what your goal is with the practice test. If you'd just like to see some new, tough questions, you'll definitely run into plenty of those after a reset. But if you're looking for a good score predictor, you should always take a completely new test.

Hope that helps!

Mark

Thanks a bunch Mark.

Other than the last test, where I hit a 740, I was scoring around the 670-690 range. I need to hit a 700. At least.

Could you provide some information on the Question Banks I see in the MGMAT Store?

I've exhausted some of the material I had, so I'd be interested in some fresh questions. Are they similar to the ones that appear in the CATs?

Indeed, the Question Banks are quite similar. Though, unlike our practice tests, they are not computer adaptive. They contain a full range of difficulty levels. Definitely plenty of tough questions in those banks.

I'd also recommend "Question Pack #1," which you can download as part of the new GMAT Prep. It gives you the option to select only "Medium" and "Difficult" questions (i.e., the ones on which you should focus).

Best,
Mark

Hi Mark

Quick question. If I've already purchased the CATs, can I purchase the Question Bank for the difference between the two prices?

The CATs were for $49, and the CATs + Question bank is for $75.

Can I get the question bank by paying $36?

Another question.

Would the question bank questions be similar to the Advanced GMAT Quant Book? (The Quant questions of the question bank only)

ahmadrulz,

You can purchase the Question Banks for $35 here: http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... 30&catid=4

Each one of our 10 Strategy Guides comes with its own Question Bank of 25 questions. The above item is a collection of all 10 of those banks. The item will not include any questions from the Advanced GMAT Quant book since that book is a supplement and not one of the 10 guides. I hope that helps!

Matt
