Abhay - Grockit is nice site to get some quick practice. Did you take \$70 package or tried the free one?

I was not sure if there are additional features/probelms you can get through paid membership. Please advise.

I paid for the full membership so I could practice solo and review my questions on my own time. if the free membership suits your needs you could stick with it.

Thanks!

Sorry, but I'd rather not disclose actual Test questions and topics as I could risk losing my GMAT score. I will say that the argument essay topic was rather long and wordy and took me a few minutes to digest. The issue was simple and straightforward so you can focus on thinking of examples. I was quick in all the sections except AWA - barely finished. Be quick and it would help if you type fast

The MGMAT tests were great, though the quant is a bit tougher than the actual GMAT, especially the DS questions.
Kaplan and Princeton were rather erratic in their adaptive nature.
Knewton was also great, though a couple of the CATs were slightly easier in the quant section. Verbal is very representative.

Good luck!

UPDATE:

Just looked at my official report - thankfully no change in the scaled score

AWA - 6.0! Was pleasantly surprised considering I hurried through them since I spent a bit too long reading the topics.

A few points about the essays:

Argument:

1 Introductory paragraph rephrasing the topic. CLEARLY STATE YOUR OPINION.

2 Paragraphs attacking the assumptions. Use critical but non-derogatory vocab. (I used very subtle but good-humored sarcasm too, so apparently that works. Shows you have character! Be very careful with that though, you don't want to appear flippant.)

1 paragraph attacking the premise. Question the basis of the opinion, and list out other factors and present a paradigm shift in the way to assess the underlying "issue".

1 conclusion paragraph clearly summarizing your opinion. Mention a few suggestions on how one could strengthen the argument (studies, statistics, etc.)

Issue:

1 Introductory para introducing the issue. Speak about a background for it, what the current situation is in the world, a historical or scientific backdrop of sorts. CLEARLY STATE YOUR OPINION.

1 Paragraph accepting the positive side of the opinion mentioned explicitly or implicitly in the issue. Give an example of a situation in which the opinion holds true. Mention a contrasting viewpoint though.

2 Paras giving counter=examples or additional examples (depending on the topic). I listed a LOT of examples - everything I could think of and covering all the subjects mentioned in the topic. Explain how there are other factors in play, how there are several contradicting situations. Show that you have a firm hold of the issue and know what you are talking about. Include personal experiences and don't be afraid to make stuff up - it totally works, i can vouch for that Very Happy

1 concluding para summarizing the issue and its various considerations. Here, rather than use a very formal concluding sentence, make it personal by homing in on your take - eg. "As a voracious reader, I would hope that authors feel encouraged to continue writing about a variety of themes."

GENERAL TIPS:

1. Quantity does matter - longer essays are more likely to be scored higher simply because they probably include more examples and evidence. Aim for a total of at least 4 solid, independent paragraphs.

2. This leads to the next point - type quickly and don't waste too much time looking for a big word you once knew. Just put it down in plain, easy-to-understand English.

3. Don't be afraid to cut-copy-paste and rearrange your essay to maintain continuity. DO NOT DELETE AN ENTIRE PARA. Leave it there or try to edit what's already in there. 30 mins isn't a lot of time for an essay, trust me.

4. Build an arsenal of a few generic introductions, conclusions and critiques and if possible a few panacean examples. Remember and understand a few standard words from debating vocabulary, eg. cogent, coherent, etc.

5. Don't repeat things redundantly - if you must reintroduce something, please use different words an try to include a new idea.

Cheers!

Are there any suggestions you would like to give for Verbal section? Did you practise from RC99,CR99(aristotle's)? Any other books apart from OG's and MGMAT SC that helped you score better?

Thanks,
