Overview of All Available 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.

Best GMAT Practice Tests:

2 GMATPrep Online Tests by GMAC - Most Accurate
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

Additional Exams (Tests 3&4 as well as Tests 5&6) can be purchased for \$50 from GMAC (or for \$35 from GMAT Club, with Premium MBA Bundle)
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 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 1,600 question bank with 30+ CATs (26 Quant and 7 Verbal)
Free on US Public Holidays

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."

Manhattan Prep GMAT CATs
Free Tests: Yes - 1 Free Test
Price:
Free if you purchase a full set of the MGMAT Guides
Free if you buy a MGMAT Course.
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."

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.

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.

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)

Hi xks,

It's important to remember that taking lots of CATs will NOT make you a better Test Taker. A CAT is really a 'measuring device' - when used correctly, it will give you a realistic score and help define your strengths and weaknesses, but it will NOT help you to fix any of those weaknesses. To raise your scores, you have to put in the necessary practice and repetitions. The CAT will show you whether your studies are helping you to improve or not.

Unfortunately, the goal to raise your score 100+ points in just 1 month might be too difficult to be considered realistic. Before I can offer you any advice about how to improve your score, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) What is your exact Test Date?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

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.

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.
Cheers.

Hi expert bb, could you please give some advices on what next steps should be taken..

For the past 1 month, I have taken 5 tests (2 from GMAT Prep and 3 from MCAT), and I could see some clear differences between CATs of these 2 providers.
Regarding Verbal, I got 1 same and 1 higher score in MCATs as/than in GMAT Prep. This surprised me, because in GMAT Prep CAT, I countered some Verbal questions that are similar to ones I had attempted in GMAT Club, while I nearly never ever faced with any Verbal questions in MCATs before.
When it comes to Quant, I'm really shocked when my scores in MCATs are much lower than those in GMAT Prep. I got Q50 in both GMAT Prep CATs, but only Q47 and Q45 in MCAT. In the 2nd GMAT Prep CAT, I even had approximately 15 minutes remained.

What are proper conclusion(s) should I draw from the above data?
Are those Verbal scores of MCAT reliable? Or just because MCAT Verbal might be a little bit easier?
I used to hear about the difficulty level of MCAT Quant before but didn't expect that much. Do you think that gap in Quant scores really matters?

I have 1 month left until the real exam. What should I do now?

Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon.

MGMAT quant questions are much harder than GMATPrep quant questions. You should expect Q50 in the real test.

About the difference in your Verbal, you can't conclude that MGMAT verbal questions are easier than GMATPrep Verbal questions. In fact, there are many factors that effect your score, and the difficult level of questions is just one of these factors. However, MGMAT and GMATPrep are two best tools to estimate score at the moment. Hence, based on your score on MGMAT, you should expect a overall score with +/-30 in the real test.

Hi,

Took my first Veritas CAT today and scored a 630 Q40V30.

This is my first CAT and took it after brushing up fundamentals in GMAT club grammar book and math book. This is the first time I opened a book after 7.5 years to read something.

I also tried some timed questions in forum and answered awfully, before taking the test. I am now unsure of whether this score is a decent indicator, since I expected a very bad score. I intend to plan my study schedule and I am confused whether I should consider this result as the platform to identify my strengths and weaknesses. Experts, pl help.

Hi ss3617,

A 630 in first CAT is pretty strong. I would suggest brush up formulas and some concepts and take GMATPrep CAT. The score that you see on GMATPrep can be relied MORE than other CATs. Invest some hours reviewing this CAT and every other subsequent CAT to know your weakness, which is not only about WHAT you did not know but also about HOW/WHAT/WHY you got a question wrong or right OR spent ton of time.

Here are official CATs available:
2. ExamPack-1 (CAT-3 & 4)
3. ExamPack-2 (CAT-5 & 6)
4. Question Pack-1 (this is set of 400+ easy-medium-high difficulty level questions). You can choose 37/41 questions and attempt them in timely manner but you will not get any score.

Do every official GMAC question available out there. Specially in VERBAL. You need to learn more the way a question is PREPARED/TESTED/CONCEPT-DISGUISED than too many concepts.

Apart from official material MGMAT questions are pretty good.

In Quant - If you can do (means learn from) ALL the GMATClub quizzes/CATs then you're done.

When you start getting consistent scores that are near to your target score then you're all prepared for the real test.

Plan the Official CATs throughout your preparation. do not take them one after another.
1. revise a CAT
2. revise concept & error log
3. take another CAT and repeat 1 & 2.
4. take official CAT
5. repeat 1-4.

Please post if you have any followup questions.

Thanks for the info mate. Thats a lot of insight.
Only one doubt. I have the OG18, quant and verbal review and the question bank associated with it. Are these the same which you get in Question pack-1?

No. It is a set of 404 questions (200 Quantitative, 180 Verbal, and 24 Integrated Reasoning) that you can buy for \$30 here - https://www.mba.com/india/store/store-catalog/gmat-preparation/gmatprep-question-pack-1.aspx

You can make sets of questions presented in OG2018 and review guides as well. Make use of Wiley online access

P.S.: Make a study plan and divide the study material to be read/practised/CAT accordingly.

Hi Experts,

1. I got a 690 (Q48 V35) last week after a 3 month preparation based on Manhattan guides.
2. I feel confident about getting a Q50. My aim for verbal is to improve the score to V37.
3. With that in mind, I am planning to enroll for the eGMAT Verbal course.

However, I have exhausted all 6 official GMAT Prep mocks and I've also given 1 Veritas and 1 Manhattan mock. With the eGMAT course, I would receive access to the GMATClub tests.

Can you confirm if -

A. The GMAT Club mocks are an accurate predictor of the Verbal scores
B. If they are not, then is there a range of points that I need to +/- for the actual GMAT test?

Accuracy depends on 2 things:
1. Official vs. unofficial questions (only GMAT Prep has official questions)
2. Database size

I would highly recommend that you only base your Verbal expectations on the official GMAT prep scores.

I have seen some people mentioned that they found MGMAT Quant questions to be somewhat more difficult than the actual GMAT and the score to be deflated somewhat. That's purely anecdotal.

Hi bb sorry for maybe asking this again, but this is on my mind for some time now:
-> Will the Wiley GMAT Official guide questions be on the actual GMAT exam?

The official questions in the Wiley Official Guide and GMAT Prep are from tests administered in the last 20 years or so. Those questions are real GMAT questions but they have been retired and no longer used in the exams. You will not see any of the OG questions on your official test but you will see some similar ones since there are patterns, esp in quant.

is Princeton material sufficent for 700+ score?

IMO, this will likely not be sufficient for many people. You will need to supplement with other prep materials that deal with concepts.

PR is a good starting point though.

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.
