Overview of All Avaialble GMAT Practice Tests

Remember that it is a good idea to take a practice test to establish a baseline - most of these will do for that purpose. However, it is not a good idea to take full length tests until you have mastered the concepts you have been tested on.

Which CAT's do you Recommend?
GMAT Prep CAT's
GMAT Club CAT's
MGMAT CAT's
Veritas Prep CAT's
Kaplan CAT's
Economist CAT's
Princeton Review CAT's
Experts' Global CATs


Tier 1 Practice Tests:


GMATPrep Software by GMAC
  • Free Tests: Yes – 2
    The question bank includes over 500 questions and thus the CATs can potentially be taken multiple times. Many have reported retaking it 2 and 3 times with a sufficient number of new non-repeating questions). If you have already exhausted the 2 CAT’s, you can find a collection of all included questions here: GMAT Prep Quant and GMAT Prep SC, GMAT Prep CR, and GMAT Prep RC
  • Price: Free for 2 tests.
    Additional Exam Packs (EP1 and EP2) can be purchased for $50 from GMAC (or for $35 from GMAT Club, for Premium members)
  • Bottom Line: Practice tests distributed by the GMAC, the administrator of the GMAT. GMAT Prep is the only test that contains real GMAT Questions and is undoubtedly the best predictor of the final GMAT Score. This product is extremely valuable at the end of preparation and many believe should not be "wasted" on pre-prep analysis or for diagnostic purposes.
  • GMAT Club Member Comments: "This is by far the most accurate and realistic."
  • Download Link: http://www.mba.com/us/store/download-fr ... tware.aspx



GMAT Club Free CATs
  • Free Tests: Yes – 2 CAT’s. Previously these were static simulation tests; however we have upgraded our free tests to a CAT format about a year ago.
  • Price:
    • $79 for a 3-month subscription to a 1,500 question bank with 30+ CATs (26 Quant and 7 Verbal)
    • Free on US Public Holidays
    • Free to users with 25 Kudos – Redeem here
  • Bottom Line: Our in-house tests developed to challenge anyone and bring out the best in the 700+ seekers. Hardest questions on the market; created by bb, Bunuel, and other prominent Moderators.
  • GMAT Club Member Comments: “Excellent tool for improving your Quant to the top level. As the name implies these tests were designed to challenge you. With some effort from your side they help you learn how to solve tough Quant questions. The Challenges cover all necessary areas of Quant section such as Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Probability, Combinations/Permutation etc."
    Link: http://gmatclub.com/tests-beta/dashboard/startfree.html


Manhattan Prep GMAT CATs
  • Free Tests: Yes - 1 Free Test
    Price:
    • $49 for 5 Additional CAT’s
    • Free if you purchase a full set of the MGMAT Guides
    • Free if you buy a MGMAT Course.

    Please note that MGMAT has changed their Test Access Policy. As of Nov 1, 2016, a single strategy guide only provides access to a single CAT test. Thus, you must purchase a full bundle or 6 guides to get access to the tests.
  • Bottom Line: Very strong and quite accurate set of 6 CAT’s with good adaptive algorithm and quality questions. Note that many members have reported MGMAT quant to be harder than the real thing, thus many recommend adding a few points to your Quant score
  • GMAT Club Member Comments: “In general, the results on real GMAT are in +/- 40 point range compared to MGMAT. Very good tool for personal evaluation, which helps to find week spots in your knowledge. Highly recommended if you want to check on your preparation progress."
  • Free Tests Link: https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/free ... tice-test/



Veritas Prep GMAT CATs
  • Free Tests: Yes - online free test
  • Price:
    • 1 free test or
    • Buy 7 tests for $49 or
    • Get 7 CAT’s free if you are a Premium Member
    • Insider Trick: you can get 2 CATs free if you opt for a special offer during registration on GMAT Club (must register a new account to use this offer)
    Veritas Prep also has a free GMAT Question Bank, which includes hundreds of realistic, completely free GMAT questions, a personal account to track your progress and review your past results, and detailed solutions for each question and a breakdown of how other students have answered each question.
  • Bottom Line: Veritas Prep has overhauled their CATs about a year ago and invested substantial effort into making the scoring as close as possible to the official GMAT. You will find a great interface and quality questions here.
  • Link: http://www.veritasprep.com/gmat/gmat-practice-test/



Economist GMAT Tutor Free CAT
  • Free Tests: Yes - online free test. To take the test, sign up for a free 7-day trial that comes with a test and a number of video lessons. No payment or credit card is required. Your free trial will last indefinitely.
  • Bottom Line: adaptive tests, solid questions, and accurate scoring.
  • Price: You cannot purchase tests separately, only as a part of the course, but the free trial offers access to quite a few questions
  • Link: http://econgm.at/gmatclub



Kaplan GMAT CAT
  • Free Tests: Yes - 1 Free Kaplan Test - you have a choice of self-paced or with a proctor
  • Price: $30 for 6 full-length practice tests on CD/Online if you purchase a Kaplan Premier book
  • Bottom Line: Good Value if purchased with a book – you can use both supplement your prep. In the past, the Kaplan tests used to grade much harsher, often resulting into 50-100 point with the official test. Several years ago they have updated the tests and the scoring algorithm to match the scores closer to real GMAT. Up to 9 tests are available with purchase of prep courses.
  • GMAT Club Member Comments: "Good tricks and though questions in both Math and Verbal. Kaplan CATs will force you to think in the right direction.”
  • Link: http://www.kaptest.com/gmat/gmat-practi ... pages-2016


Princeton Review GMAT CAT
  • Free Tests: Yes - 1 Free Test, similar to Kaplan, you have to register for it as an event.
  • Price: Access to 4 online tests comes with Cracking the GMAT – about $30
  • Bottom Line: Overall is a good practice if starting from scratch and targeting 600 to 700 range.
  • GMAT Club Member Comments: “PR is very good as a refresher. The Princeton CATs are designed for those starting on basics concepts. As a result the Quant section seems to be primitive compared with Manhattan GMAT or Kaplan.”
  • Link: http://www.princetonreview.com/business ... ctice-test


Experts' Global
  • Free Tests: No
  • 15 Full tests with AWA and IR
  • Includes video explanations for each question
  • Bottom Line: adaptive tests, questions carry resemblance to official questions, sometimes too similar.
  • Price: $29

Great post BB!
Activated my MGMAT 6 free CAT'S just days before the policy change. Wasn't aware of that until now! Phew

Recommend GMAT Prep, MGMAT, and GMAT Club Quant.
GMAT Club Quant for the hardest Quant and Veritas Prep for Quant as well.

As mentioned all over the forum, stick to GMAT Prep as much as possible especially for an accurate Verbal indicator.
Quant tends to be much more accurate for most CATs.

Thanks for the post BB!

For the MGMAT CATs, is it 1 free test then 5 additional you can purchase for a total of 6 CATs? Or is it 1 free test and 6 additional that can be purchased? I ask this because I created an account on MGMAT to do the free test and noticed 5 tests that can be unlocked for a price.

Cheers.

There are 6 CATs in total.
You can receive 1 free test just by signing up. You now get 1 test per book you purchase from them. This is why if you buy the book bundle, you receive all 6 CAT's (including 1 free one)
Like you mentioned, you can also unlock the CAT's by simply purchasing them.

I don't think it matters all that much. What what you can get conveniently/fast enough.
Kaplan tests come included with a book and Veritas Prep ones you can buy stand-alone (sometimes at a discount) or bundled with Premium Membershp or their course. MGMAT come with the book bundle.

P.S. As Mo2men pointed out, MGMAT and Veritas Prep are probably some of the most updated/polished products.

Hi guys,

I am going to take the GMAT in one month so I need to buy additional CAT tests. I've already taken the two free officials and the last one was from Veritas. I scored 680, 690, 690. I don't really need to know in a very accurate way my current level rather have the best chances to score as high as possible on the actual day. I need 3 tests (one by week) so I was wondering whether I should buy the 6 from Veritas (for something like 20$ they are currently discounted) or 2 from GMATPrep and take the free one from Manhattan.
What's the best option ?

Hi floprg
The best predictor would be GMAT Prep. Veritas and MGMAT may unsettle you. GMATPrep would be the closest you can get to an actual exam.

Hi bb, Thank you very much!

Many people claimed that Kaplan used to upset them by low score, but as you pointed out, Kaplan changed the algorithm several years ago so the score would go up. But do you think that the score in Kaplan cat goes up too much?
I just took the test and got 730 (Q51, V39) - a bit too high (verbal) compared to my expectation.
all: anybody recently took the test and shared the same concern? (I exhausted all 6 GMATPREP tests so I really need to rely on other sources to track my progress)
