What are people's thoughts about the official GMAT Prep tests? I read they are the only ones with actual GMAT questions, but I've also heard people say that they're easier than the actual exam and don't give you a great indication of what your score will be. What do folks here think?


Try this link for a correlation between the two. http://gmatclub.com/gmat-score-calculator/
Usually, GMAT Prep is the best indicator; it is the OG 12 that has somewhat easier questions than the GMAT.

You can get MGMAT Tests for free with a purchase of any of their books, which are highly recommended.

Slightly different purpose between the two. GMAT Club Tests are heavily quant, so if you have issues with quant or want to get it up to 50 or 51, that's the tests to get.

MGMAT offer good quant and verbal practice but there are only 6 of them, so if you need some general simulation tests, these are the ones to get.

You can get gmat club tests with 200 posts and 90 days of membership; MGMAT tests come free with any MGMAT book

Hi everyone,

Just joined recently, and I'm finding this forum really helpful...

I've happened to read several posts that suggest that Kaplan CAT scores are generally lower than actual GMAT scores. Some of these post seems to be a little dated (6 months - a year ago), and I'm using the most recent (2010) Kaplan CATs. Has Kaplan scoring changed at all since these posts were written?

I scored a 630 on my first GMAT Prep. I studied my mistakes, went through the material for a couple of weeks, and today I scored 660 on a Kaplan CAT. How reflective of the real GMAT are the most recent Kaplan CATs?

I'm using the Kaplan GMAT Premier Live Online 2010 Edition.

Would appreciate your insight...

Hi. Kaplan has adjusted their scoring, so the reports of previous results are no longer valid....
In the old days, the best i got to was 640 or so (right before scoring a 750)

Thanks bb.

Are there any reports on the correlation between more recent Kaplan scores and actual GMAT scores?
I'm just trying to get a feel for how reliable and reflective the most recent Kaplan CATs are...

It's pretty close now; probably within 40 points (which is the standard error for most tests)

We do have the gmat score estimator/calculator but it is using the old algorithm.

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for and I knew I would find something like it on GMAT Club. Great. To second an opinion given by a few of the other users around the forum, CATPrep[dot]com tests are pretty worthless if you're looking for help in learning WHY you got the answers right or wrong. Their explanations, especially on the Quant section are very unclear, make large jumps in how to solve the problem, a generally come across more like some person explaining answer to you in a half-a$$ manner. My two cents. Thanks for the review of all the CATs!

Thank you for your thoughts!
P.S. I will add the link to Score Calculator to the Main discussion; we'll also update the Kaplan algorithm.

Hi bb,
Thanks a ton for all the amazing messages that you have posted in the link. I have registered for my exam 3 months from now. After reading through all the threads, I have concluded on the following test taking strategy :

1) GMAT PREP - TEST 1
2) MANHATTAN TEST 1
3) MANHATTAN TEST 2
4) MANHATTAN TEST 3
5) GMAT PREP - TEST 2

Would the above test suffice ? Any additional tests that you would recommend?

Many thanks.

You will get a total of 6 MGMAT tests (one of which is the free test online), so you have more options.

I took a total of about 6-10 practice tests for my prep (don't remember any more). However, it varies from person to person. I'd take that and see how it feels. You will have a few more MGMAT tests at that point.

Let me know if any other questions.

I scored 640 on kaplan before my preparation. Actually I had guessed ( not random guessing) many verbal questions and managed to score 37 in verbal. But after my preparation, I have worked warily because of many new concepts , which forced me to look for subtle differences. Now after learning the concepts verbal looks more daunting.

Even the quant was not scored properly. I had few wrong answers, but the score was q46-47.

Many thanks. So it means 6 MGMAT + 2 GMATPREP tests should be sufficient for practice? Or would you recommend tests from Kaplan or other sources?

Hi, I didn't see the "free access to all tests for members with 200+ posts" on the official page of the GMAT Club Test. Is it still open for free for the members with 200+ posts?
