We have added 42 New high-quality Verbal questions and explanations to the GMAT Club Tests

While we regularly update and add new questions to the GMAT Club tests, we usually do not announce them simply because it is nothing exciting. However, in this case, we have added 42 new Verbal questions written by GMATNinja - they have gone live in our system on Sunday Feb 18th. There are a few reasons it is worth posting about:

• As the result, the total number of possible Verbal CAT's has gone up to 10 CAT's
• For everyone taking Verbal Questions, the score accuracy will be higher (the more questions in the database, the higher is the accuracy)
• You can take these 42 new questions with really detailed explanations here as a GMAT Club Tests Collection (you can build a quiz out of them or take them all)

Currently GMAT Club Tests Database contains 1,298 Quant Questions and 538 Verbal Questions.

The GMAT Club Tests are available for a 3 or 6 month subscription. Alternatively if you are an active member of the community, you can redeem your Rewards Points or Kudos for Access without paying. We also offer full access to GMAT Club Tests on US Public Holidays. Make sure you take advantage of this resource.

HI bb i would like to suggest you to add- extra 6-8 RC passages ques apart from these 42 questions

Today i gave test number 9 => Unfortunately i only got CR and SC => 27 CR and 14 SC => No RC question , I guess for Exact 10 Verbal tests you need to put 6-8 Extra RC passage also apart from 42 new questions ,
By test nr 8 , i have already consumed all RC in your bank in mock tests only -> PS i did not attempt RC in quizzes.

So adding 6-8 RC questions will not waste test nr 9 and 10... by the way i have already attempted test nr 9 , so only 10th is remaining... but now i know there are no RC ques in 10 th also -> so i will have to think again before giving 10th test ,as it will not be matching to GMAT standard {41 ques w/o RC is not GMAT pattern}.

This is great news bb :D

During my preparation for the gmat as well, I felt that the tests gave more importance to quant and now I feel that verbal is getting its due. ( i'm slightly jealous now ) but happy that the tests will cater to the verbal section as well.

basically 10 Verbal tests are lacking in 6-8 RC question minimum
Also in my last 3-4 verbal tests - i got only 3 RC passage / test .. ( in GMAT we usually get 4)
so adding 12 will be a better option...

I just checked the tests section and it shows that 6 CATS remaining shouldn't it be 10?

I have 10 showing but I have reset my question database to mark all my questions as "fresh"
It is possible that if you have attempted some questions, your number will be lower.

That's a screenshot shown to users who do not have a subscription. Since it is a screenshot, it is not dynamic. It is great to see, however that in the last few years we have added enough questions to make a few more tests - that's really cool! I have not tracked that. I probably should.

Hi bb,

That's Amazing!! Thank you so much. Given that these questions come from the legend GMATNinja himself makes it even more exciting!! Is there a way to know which questions have been recently added? I haven't done any verbal tests but would love to try out all the new questions.

Thanks.

Good question... the system is not designed to specifically identify which questions were recently added but I can build a collection of new questions and share it. Give me a bit.

I have added the 42 Questions as a new Official 42-Question Collection. If you have an active subscription, you will be able to take these separately.

Instructions how to use Collections:
1. Select all or some of the questions
2. Click Build Quiz OR Add to a Collection of your own
3. OR Try each question individually
