Which mocks to exploit? [#permalink] New post 14 Jun 2014, 08:13
Hi experts,

Can anyone suggest which mocks I should exploit?

My GMAT is on 14th Jul 2014.

Already completed mocks are listed in my signature.

Should I reset GMATPrep/Exam packs or should I give mocks such as Kaplan/Veritas and others?

I would appreciate the responses.

Hey TGC,

This is what you should do:

1.) If you have given the 2 free GMATPrep exams reset those and give again. If you have given those recently, you will notice approx 6 questions in common in each part (Q & V). In case you gave a long time back. You wont notice they are common and will feel like fresh tests. :)

2.) Buy MGMAT. Good tests. You will have 6 more. A bit on the tougher side, so will be a good grilling.

3.) If you are feeling brave. Purchase the GMAT CLUB tests. :twisted:

There, you have enough tests to last you eternity. If you want more, use the paper test GMATPrep from GMAC.

Regards,
Avik.

How about Exampack1 ?

I reset exam pack today and noticed that I was getting same questions as in my old exam pack1 tests. So, I started with Veritas prep.

Furthermore, If am not wrong the reset you are talking about is just the "reset" button on the software or somthing related to uninstalling and reinstalling the software?

I gave last GMATprep on 06 April 2014, so resetting it would be a good idea.

But why resetting didn't work in Exam pack?

@TGC

The database of questions in Exam Pack 1 is small compared to GMATPrep Practice tests(the free ones). For example, there are around 200 questions in the quant pool from which the questions are drawn, which is considerably smaller than the 700 questions in the database of GMATPrep Free tests.

Cheers,
Dabral

Your verbal looks like it is fluctuating all over the place -- I would focus your efforts on the OG verbal section (Maybe review the MGMAT Sentence Correction Strategy Guide). If you can bring that up to 36 - 40 range, then you should score very well given your outstanding quant scores. Good luck and I'd say go for the GMATClub Tests! I think they will give you more difficult verbal practice versus MGMAT.

Kudos if I helped!

Exactly this is my point of concern.

I have done OG12/13 and verbal review 2. Now I am doing Gmac question pack.

The problem with CR:

Numbers and percentages: Hard to predict the answer
General CR issue: Hard to pre think assumption

The problem with SC:

No matter how many rules I digest the mock throws a new type of rule.
I have done MGMAT SC guide many times and aristotle grail too

Till now no issue with RC's other than the subject matter of RC, at times boring.

Hi,

I gave GMATPrep again and found too many questions repeated both in quants and verbal.

As far as I can remember, I got 2 RC's repeated implying 6 questions in RC repeated.

I got 4 CR repeated.
And 3 SC repeated.

What is the difficulty level?

Is it comparable to real GMAT or rather GMATPreps?
