Timing for GMAC GMAT Prep Tests [#permalink] New post 06 Jul 2011, 11:19
Hello all! First time poster, week-long reader, and about to start my GMAT/MBA journey.

Quick question:
I understand the GMAC GMAT preparation tests to be the cream of the crop for taking full-length sample GMAT tests. And I hear they should be taken towards the end of preparation as a predictor for actual score. But how does one define 'end of preparation'? In my preparation process, should I take the test as a diagnostic to give me 4 weeks or so before my test to improve on any last minute weaknesses? Or do I save it for the end-end -- for my final week -- to close my preparation on an official note and put my head in the right place?

My initial plan is to take the first free test after finishing the Kaplan book to understand my weaknesses. Then I plan on taking the second test about four weeks prior to my test date to again tackle weaknesses. Should I be waiting later to use up my second test?

PS - My test date is Nov 19

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums !

If you have just started your preparation, you can take the gmatprep test without wasting them. The 2 gmatprep tests have over 750 questions, so people can repeat both gmatprep 1 and 2 one time easily without seeing many repeats. You can take the test right now and get to know where you need to work on. After completing your prep you will be scoring much higher than now , so you won't see more than 2 or 3 repeat questions when you take the practise test again. So go ahead and judge your skills. You won't be wasting this test . Also there is a diagnostic test in OG 12 book which you can take too.
