Hi cocojatti92,

Retaking a CAT that you've already taken will likely lead to seeing 'repeat' questions. Unfortunately, seeing even a few questions that you've already faced will throw off the Score Algorithm and the 'realism' of the experience (your pacing, stress and energy levels will all be 'better' than they normally would be). To properly assess your skills, strengths and weaknesses, you shouldn't take CATs in that way. From your question, I assume that you've taken the Exam Pack 1 CATs (re: CATs 3 and 4) before - so you shouldn't buy them again. If you need some new practice CATs, then there are some reputable 3rd-party CATs that you can use.

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) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

You can buy those exams as many times as you like. Whether you should, however, depends on why you want to buy them again.

1. Do you need them for the new format? That could be one reason to purchase those exams again (the codes for the software version will not work with the online version).
2. Has it been quite some time since you last took those tests? If yes, then you probably don't remember the questions, so taking the tests again should be okay.
3. If there were technical issues that prevented you from completing those tests, just reset them and try again. You don't need to buy the tests to do that.

The question pool from which those two tests draw their questions is fairly small. Repeating them is generally not a good idea.

AjiteshArun sir one of my friends already bought both the Exam Packs of GMAC last to last year. So whether the same needs to be bought again as per new format or they will be upgraded automatically as per new format?

Hi vasuca10,

Those exam pack codes will not be updated automatically.

There was an offer to replace codes that had been purchased recently, but that was for purchases between Jan 16, 2018 and April 15, 2018 and the request had to be sent to gmatofficialprep@mba.com by May 11, 2018. But before you purchase the codes again, I suggest you (or, preferably, your friend) drop them an email requesting replacement codes. They may decide to help out. While you're at it, mention that the GMATPrep software doesn't work anymore and just gives a message saying that it is unable to reach the authentication servers. I think they should take that into consideration.

Hi cocojatti92,

Since you will see many repeat questions when retaking practice exams 3 and 4, you may consider purchasing and taking exams 5 and 6. Have you taken those tests yet? When is your GMAT and what is your score goal?
