GMAT Prep is undoubtedly the best available Practice Tests. However, GMAT Prep provides us with only 6 Practice tests.

The next best Practice Tests, in order of preference.
1. Manhattan Prep
2. Veritas Prep
3. Kaplan

All the above three companies provide GMAT like questions, and the score algorithms have been modified over the years to provide the best possible estimation. I've provide the links below, for your reference.

Hi Vig17, Welcome to the GMAT Club!

GMAT Prep is provided by mba.com themselves ( the creator of the GMAT exam) and as you must have rightly guessed provide the mocks which are closest to the "real thing". However, there are a bunch of test prep companies with really good offerings. You can find a consolidated overview of free and paid cats here.

There are also a bunch of free trials offered by test prep companies and most of them come with at least one free mock CAT which companies provide so that prospective students can test the waters. I would recommend you taking a few before you decide which one to go ahead and purchase. You can find a consolidated list of free trials here.

Feel free to explore the forums and tag back to ask any further doubts.

Happy learning!

Hi Vig17,

Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests, Veritas Prep Tests and Experts' Global CATs in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hi Vig17,

The scoring algorithm on the Official GMAT is far more complicated than most people realize. Since that algorithm is proprietary, no GMAT company has an exact match for it, thus CAT scores can vary a bit based on the 'biases' involved in their respective designs. The most realistic CATs available are the 6 from GMAC, but retaking a CAT that you've already taken is NOT a realistic way to assess your skills. Seeing even a few 'repeat' questions can 'throw off' the Scoring Algorithm and impact your pacing, energy levels, fatigue, etc. (meaning that they would likely all be better than they normally would be). Thankfully, the CATs from Kaplan, MGMAT and Veritas are all 'close enough' to the real thing that they will provide you with a relatively realistic score assessment (assuming that you use the CAT correctly).

From your posts, I understand that your goal is to raise a 660 to a 750+ in just a few weeks. Unfortunately, that type of improvement in such a short period of time is likely too difficult to be considered realistic. While you might be tempted to take lots of practice CATs, that would NOT be a good idea.

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 learn the necessary Tactics and put in the proper practice and repetitions. The CAT will show you whether your studies are helping you to improve or not. Raising a 660 to the point that you could consistently score 750+ will likely require at least another 2 months of consistent, guided study. Thankfully, the GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam, so you CAN train to score at a higher level.

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) For the upcoming application deadline you listed, what is the minimum Score that you would apply with?

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

Students generally report scores within +-30 points of what they get on the real test.

Experts' Global's mocks are the nearest to GMAT in quality of questions, range of concepts, the interface, and the overall feel/experience. I found the scoring- total as well as the split, highly representative.

This is probably the only test series that also comes with video explanations, which are really useful. The post-test analysis is the best part as it really breaks your performance and makes the hours spent in taking the mocks really worth it. The algorithm keeps telling your weakest areas as per the recent performance and that is a great feature.

Experts' Global gives 15 mocks so just one test series becomes enough. I took the free mock of some of the other renowned test series but frankly, did not find them comparable to Experts' Global's platform.

They offer a free mock so you can always take a mock and judge- https://www.expertsglobal.com/free-gmat-practice-test

I wonder why Experts' Global's mocks and course are relatively less talked-about, despite being far ahead in quality as well as features.
