During my GMAT preparation, I want to work through official questions, but I also don't want to use up questions that will be used on practice tests. I feel my score on practice tests will be more accurated if I've never seen the questions before.

Do any of the following sources have overlapping (reused) questions?:

1. The 2 practice tests in the GMATPrep software
2. GMATPrep Exam Pack 1
3. GMATPrep Exam Pack 2
4. GMAT Official Guide (any edition)
5. GMAT Official Guide Verbal Review (any edition)
6. GMAT Official Guide Quantitative Review (any edition)
7. Any source of actual GMAT questions (rather than imitations) that I haven't listed

Thanks!

Edit: Please ignore the links in #3-6. For some reason, the forum itself automatically inserted links where I did not intend any. Please go by the full name of each listed item rather than the link.

The OGs are not completely new, so if you are using multiple OGs, you should expect to see many repeated questions. If you're using (let's say) OG 2018, VR 2018, QR 2018, Exam Pack 1, Question Pack 1, Exam Pack 2 and GMATPrep free tests, then no, there will be no overlap.

Thanks! Very complete answer. I didn't mention one other source: the 3 paper tests. Is there any overlap between the paper tests and any of the other sources you listed?

Yes, with the earlier OGs (so you should be fine if you're using the 2018). By the way, there are 9 tests (3 sets, with 3 tests each). Here is what mba.com says about the paper tests:

Quote:
More than half of the questions are only available in these tests, all of which are retired and out of circulation.

GMAT Paper Tests I—Includes retired tests 14, 31, and 55

GMAT Paper Tests II—Includes retired tests 25, 37, and 48

GMAT Paper Tests III—Includes retired tests 28, 42, and 52

Please note: This is a downloadable product and is accessible as soon as your purchase is complete. Paper tests are in pdf format and require Adobe Reader to access.

Some portions of the paper tests can be found in earlier versions of the Official Guide for GMAT Review. These paper-based tests are not computer-adaptive, and answer explanations are not included.

You can find questions using our search engine. For example, if you mark OG + Overlapping sets in PS you'll get THESE QUESTIONS and if you mark OG + Overlapping sets in DS you'll get THESE QUESTIONS. Note that some fo the questions from OG might overlapp with GMAT Prep questions.

Hope it helps.
