Hey all,

I wanted to share that I just got an email from GMAC with a voucher for the 404 official question pack for free because of the cancellation of my previous appointment, actually I had other issues with mba.com that caused this but I got it as if it had just been cancelled, so check your inbox just in case you got it, if you do not understand the process to redeem it let me know, it is simpler than they make it.


Also, I saw yesterday that Amazon already has pre-bookable the new 2021 OGs, delivering on May 5th at the Spanish site, so I assume they will be earlier in the US. In case anyone is thinking on buying it now I would recommend to wait for a month and get an updated one with extra questions.


Regards,
Pablo

I just checked and at Amazon.comit says it will be available by May 12th, seems will be earlier in Europe as it shows the individual volumes available from May 5th (the bundle though appears only from July 7th vs same May 12th at the US site).

Wiley site also allows its pre-purchase and states that it will be available in May. Maybe (probably) specialized bookstores will get it earlier.

Pablo

Thanks for posting the news. That's great!!!
(I have slightly updated your post to put more focus on the free 400 practice questions from the GMAC; though I realize most of my post is now about the Official guide :lol:)

As to the OG 2021, it's been announced a while ago and was expected in Mid-April but now Amazon has moved/shifted it to May 12th in the US (yesterday that date was May 15th, so it seems to be fluid). OG 2021 US Amazon site link.

However the price is still $47 right now with no discount (usually they will discount it down as soon as the book is actually out). Amazon will refund you money if you pre-ordered but what they do often is they prioritize new orders first and as a pre-order, my order often arrives quite a few days later than for people who have ordered it on the day of the release (and I am in Seattle of all the places).

Another secret about the OG is that you can usually get it sooner from the EfficientLearning site in e-Book format. Last year it was available April 25th (a week or two sooner than from Amazon May 7th date): https://gmatclub.com/forum/official-gui ... 94189.html)

Thanks for the help bb!

Regarding the free practice questions, I would suggest everyone to check the inbox, and if you already took the test, you have them or for whatever reason do not need them, sharing is caring (I already claimed mines, sorry).

On the email GMAC just repeats the message that they will have the alternative online by mid-April and promises that soon they will provide details about it, let's cross our fingers (at least in Spain I do no foresee an end of confinement before May).

Regards,
Pablo

Great! Thank you for the clarification! Are you planning to take the New GMAT at Home? Seems like you were ready to take it.

I guess I have no other option, but I wouldn't like to be one of the first ones.
I actually was going to take it earlier but then I started interviewing with Monitor and had to reschedule, as they did not get me I go back to my initial plan.

In Spain & Italy I do not think the test centres will open again before June, and if they do the safety requirements will mean their capacity will be reduced to 1/3.

Pablo

Is there any way to get these questions? Curious to know if they gave just the MBA.com package of questions that can be bought independently.
