Hi BB thank you for this amazing resource. I plan on purchasing access soon. Question - for the Forum Quiz do the questions come from the 1,643 GMATClub questions? I'm assuming it's the same underlying source and the Forum Quiz is a tool/dashboard where you can create sets? thank you

Hi. The questions in the quiz come from the sub forums with over 50,000 discussed questions. some of the GMAT Club test questions are posted around but the test database of 1600 questions is a different source.

Hi Everyone - we have had a minor update to the Forum Quiz.

We have removed the spoiler with OA (official answer) from the quiz screen so now it is NOT possible to look up the answer while working on the question. You can still get the OA and check your answer after you click one of the answers on the timer.

We were not trying to be evil or limit functionality, instead trying to encourage people to not look up the answers or be tempted to. Curious what everyone things - good/bad? welcome your input about this change

This feature is exactly what I was looking for because I usually tend to start thinking immediately about the question and the answer choice that went wrong instead of attempting the next question, especially during RC. This feature allows taking the test without worrying about the answers. It's perfect for a test-like feel while practicing! Thank you bb

I personally think this is a great change. The purpose of forum quiz has always been to take the questions in the quiz format. Removing the ability to see the answer makes the entire experience more uniform and realistic than it was before.

Kudos to the team for making this happen

I wonder if some the users we’re not using the timer feature?

As a note, you don’t have to start the timer to see the insert, you can just click on one of the answers and that will display to you the correct and incorrect answer.

PS. I have no opinion or skin in the game here. Everyone is welcome one to argue their point and recommend / suggest a better approach. Happy to restore the spoiler. Just seems we need to clearly communicate our thinking and logic. Let this be an exercise in leadership.

Hi. No. The product in iOS app is different. It is an older product and a prototype of the quiz…. It only works on iOS and does not sync with the desktop version or error log.

bb, So is this new change going to be permanent or is this temporary?--for testing purposes?
Just checking to make sure. That's all.
Thank you.

Nothing is permanent in this world. However, for the time being we are forcing people to finish the quiz before they can see correct answers to the questions.

How about giving the answers to the 50 or so questions that the user gets in the forum quiz at the end of the session? Would such a thing be a possibility? Would make it easier to see answers to the questions all at once; so the experience would be much more test-like? What do you think?

When I start the forum quizz I can't see the full question... the A, B, C, D options from the test are missing. Is this an error? As such I'm unable to take the test!

I'm using windows- chrome. I've refreshed the page, logged out/ in several times but the problem still persists. The options to take the tests are missing. I'd add the screenshot but unfortunately can't because I'm still new to the forum. Instead of the options it's showing a code like DS54402.01.

Thank you so much for sharing the screenshot with me. I will post it here for reference.
The question in the quiz is a Data Sufficiency Question. It does not have answer choices
Well, it actually does, but every single question has the exactly same ones and so we do not publish them since they would be using up space and you should not read them anyway and you should know them by heart but of course there is always the first and second time when you don't know them by heart...

Anyway, sorry about that. Data sufficiency questions all have the exact same answer choices. Here they are for reference:

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.
Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.
BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.
EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.
Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

Hi bb !

This is an amazing feature. Thank you for all the work that was put in to create it.

I do have one suggestion to improve the verbal experience. Would it be possible to add a feature of only receiving 3-4 questions per RC passage?
From what I understand the exam usually has about 12 SC 12 CR and 4 RC passages with 3 questions or 3 RC passages with 4 questions each.

I usually start the quiz with 65 minutes but spend a lot of time on RC cause some passages have around 6 or more questions.

Any help with this would be great. Thank you in advance.
