Dzyubam,

Thank you and sorry for the double post. I did break down 2/3 tests topic wise in an excel sheet. I have sent you an Excel sheet as a PM that covers All the topics included in the 25 tests.

Hope it is of help.

Thanks for the free access today, much appreciated.

I've been working through the verbal tests and have notice a couple of minor QA issues unrelated to the actual question being asked:

V02#20 - there is a typo in the question, "cost" vs "most"
Quote:
The author mentions previous findings that "cost cola drinkers thought vinegar would worsen the taste" primarily to

V03#23 - the underlined sentence fragment "Being that" is given as the forth option rather than the first.

Thanks again

SF

Like the Maths tests here.....sets you thinking in different directions though really sweat you out!
Just had a suggestion: Is it possible to include the difficulty level of the questions while reviewing the test at the end (difficulty level vis -a-vis GMAT questions 1-10 scale) This would really help judge where the person is in terms of 500/600/700 level.........

Thank you - this a great suggestion. Most questions are 700+ level though (with some fillers to throw you off guard), so there would be mostly just a few categories. A better option would be to see which questions were answered wrong by most people - I will research if this is possible and if it can be done soon.

What is the reason for questions with decimals (i.e. answers with 8.92 as in M06#17). I have seen a lot of those in the tests.

I don't think the GMAT is about fast calculations, is this done on purpose?

Thanks

Thank you for the feedback! Mostly - Yes though some are plain painful designed to bog you down.
See this post for the answer why: what-arithmetic-should-i-memorize-80128.html

Also, please check your reference - M6#17 is

If $$\sqrt{(3 + \sqrt{x - 1})} = 4$$ , what is the value of $$x$$ ?

Hi bb,

Could you please redirect me to the forum, where I can point out the typos in the GMAT club tests.

m06#32
On a coordinate graph, a circle is centered at the point 3,3. IF the radius of the circle is sqrt(6), and there is a square ABCD inscribed into the circle cutting it into 5 regions, what is the area of the arch CD?

What the explanation gives is the answer for "segment CD" and not "arch CD". I think "arch" should be replaced with "segment".

while the test questions are awesome, the explanations for answer can be bit more detailed with concepts used, strategy to solve the problem like pick numbers or use formulas etc....

also i could see only 6 verbal test , are you planning to add more.

We are continuously working on explanations improvement. The verbal questions are harder to develop so we are looking for a good verbal questions writer. There will be no new Verbal sets released in the nearest future. I hope you benefited from practicing with the GMAT Club Tests .

Is it easy to follow, and what I'm wondering is if, once you read the explanation, do you feel that you can apply the same concept to other problems and not just the one at hand? Thanks.

I thought the answer to question 24 of m09 test is C not E. Am I missing something here.

AFAIK the mean of consecutive odd numbers should be same no matter how big or how small the number are, they are always 5.

Hi,

Welcome to GMAT Club and congratulations on your first post!

The correct answer for m09-24 is E. You're wrong about the mean of consecutive odd integers being 5 all the time. As you might know, the mean is found by summing up all numbers and dividing by the number of elements in a set. So, the mean for set (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) will equal $$\frac{1+3+5+7+9}{5}=5$$. However, for set (5, 7, 9, 11, 13) the mean will equal $$\frac{5+7+9+11+13}{5}=9$$. I hope it helps.

In future, before posting another question in this forum, please read this post of mine:
please-read-this-before-posting-71350.html

If you can't find the discussions you need using the methods outlined in the post above, feel free to start a new topic in this forum.

Thank you for cooperation .
