I trial m25 and finish with

correctly 30 out of 37 questions; percentile on test m25 is 73.9%
Total time 1h 12m 28s
anyhow, I took the real gmat two month ago and got Q= 48

I think that m25 is much easier than the real test as well as mgmat Right?
Is m25 easier than other sets?? (I am deciding to buy other sets)

Thanks

I bought the entire set on an impulse and boy am I glad I did!
Wao...when you guys talk about percentile, are you referring to the percentile the screen gives you at the end of each test?
So far, I have taken 3 tests.
m01 - 29/37 (84.3%)
m02 - 27/37 (47.3%)
m25 - 23/37 (43.5%)

As you can see, my numbers dont even compare to what I see posted here..
Should I go back to basics and not try to take these tests at the time?
I thought I had a pretty good grasp on the concepts as I am an engineering major and have traditionally been decent at math.


These percentiles reflect your position relative to others who have taken that particular test (for instance, not a lot of people have taken m25, perhaps only those who completed a majority of the others, leaving you at a disadvantage and hence skewing your test result. Your results from m01, which has been taken by a lot of people, are perhaps more reflective of where you stand). From the tests you've taken so far, identify your weaknesses, revise them in detail and try to see if you can re-solve the same questions you got wrong previously. Overall, to best utilize these tests, I would encourage you to brush up on all concepts listed in OG11 - and since you're from an engineering background, I suppose it will not take you long to come upto speed.

Nobody should use GMAT Club Tests percentile as a predictor of real GMAT math percentile. Our Tests just give the percentiles that show your position relative to other test takers. Some people get even 100th percentile if they score very high in not very popular tests that were taken by few people.

Our percentiles are not representative of the real GMAT math percentiles.

"Our Tests just give the percentiles that show your position relative to other test takers"

Isnt that what the GMAT does? I know what you are trying to say. But to me, I would like a tool that gives an accurate representation of my current standing. I have scored as low as 27th percentile and as high as the 80th with the challenges. Maybe you can limit it so that everyone can only submit marks once and that questions submitted in review mode don't count? The way I see things, someone could go through in review mode, submit every answer after being shown the correct one and their score would count in the rankings. How am I supposed to compare myself to that? If you don't make some alterations the percentile ranking is basically worthless.

The only thing I was using it for was to monitor my own progress. But as you have said not everyone writes the same amount of tests so it is basically meaningless against that data too! Oh well. The questions are still a decent buy!

ps. I just realized the original post probably should have been over in the other forum. I put it there as well.

Hi All
Would have loved to know what Raw Score these Q49-50 Calibre guys used to get/getting in these GMAT Club tests?

Is it like 31-33 Correct (Qs) out of Maxm 37?

I got Q48 easily in GMAT(last Aug) but my scores here in Q01-Q03 are like 12-15 Mistakes(25/37)
Tests are excellent no doubt about that
They will surely teach you many tricks and also let you perform in timed condition
thanks GMAT Club Team

I'm not 100% sure I understand your question. Majority of scores submitted in this thread have raw scores as well. See this one for example:
p512851-result-correlation-between-gmat-and-gmat-club-s-tests#p512851

The first column is the test number, the second - questions answered correctly, the third - total number of questions, ...

I'm sorry if I didn't get your questions right.

There is no way these test could give a valid percentile because:
1. The percentile is calculated over all the people who take these tests. These people (us) are not representative of the people who take the real GMAT because most of us are determined to get a good GMAT score (that's why we are in gmatclub.com). That should mean that our scores are better that the average GMAT taker and the percentiles are lower.
2. The tests allows to "cheat" by getting into review mode.

Anyway, these tests are very good... just ignore the percentiles.

real gmat - 51 (99%)

the challenge interface was being re-done during most of this time so the built in timer wasn't working. thus you could keep going after 75 minutes. i started timing myself. scores marked with a * indicate when i went past the 75 minute mark. in some cases i spent up to 100 minutes. my goal early was on to learn how to do every question, even if it meant struggling during the test. then, from test 16 onwards or so, i was very good at doing the majority of question types. i then started to focus on test-taking strategy and would skip questions in the interest of time. by the last 3-4 challenges i was finishing a few minutes early. also, i would absolutely recommend that you go back and review each question whether you got it right or wrong. make sure you are tackling the problem the fastest way. i spent about 2 hours total on each challenge...75 taking the test and 40 minutes or so reviewing each question and re-doing questions i knew i could tackle faster.

i would really like to thank gmatclub for these challenges. w/o a doubt these challenges raised my score from 85-90% to 99%. the only other math prep i did was the last 1/3-1/4 questions in OG11 and OG quant workbook. i haven't tried mgmat, kaplan 800, etc.. but i would absolutely recommend these challenges if you're shooting for 49+ quant. well, well worth the $79.



Thanks, that was very helpful...

I'm planning on taking my exam this june (after my CFA exam) and I'll definitely do all the GMATClub math and verbal tests...

I guess there is no result correlation available for Diagnostic Test. There are some figures for the regular Math Tests together with the free m25 Math test. Sorry for the confusion.
