It seems to me a quant test, but one you can only take once. How much extra value does this tool offer over other resources?

It is expensive and is usually not recommended unless you have exhausted all OTHER Quant questions... as you will be paying $1 per question here is some feedback from the past users of it: Quote: Each exam contains 24 retired questions, so,in principle, their level is similar to the ones you will see during the exam. The tool also predicts what your quant score will be, although the range is normally big unless you perform extremely well. It's a good tool if you have EXHAUSTED official resources and you want more OFFICIAL practice. The explanations are similar to those in the OG perhaps a little better. _________________ Founder of GMAT Club US News Rankings progression - last 10 years in a snapshot - New!

There are at least six GMAT Focus questions that also appear in the Quant Review guide, and more than two dozen that appeared in the 12th edition of the GMAT Official Guide. There aren't as many overlapping questions in the 13th edition, but you probably won't be happy with GMAT Focus if you used the 12th edition. But even if you haven't touched the 12th edition, you'll see a few repeats... and that's pretty frustrating when you're paying$1 per question.

But other than the bizarre length (24 questions), the incredibly large score ranges, the ridiculous price tag, and the repeat questions, GMAT Focus is pretty awesome.
