I know of that many of this club members are experts but I wish to have an elaborate response to the following query: I have booked my Gmat test and already surfing the GMAT booklet but I am looking for GMAT exam that simulates exactly the GMAT test. I hope you can help with helpful free comprehensive test.

Hello, mahmoudalisber. Any serious GMAT™ student or GMAT Club Expert alike will tell you that nothing can match the six official CATs offered by GMAC™, in terms of mimicking the real test or allowing you to predict your eventual score on the exam. If you have signed up for an account on MBA.com, which I imagine you have if you have already booked your test, then you have access to the only free tests you will get, tests 1 and 2: the other four official CATs cost money to access. As of this writing, purchasing tests 3-6 in one bundle costs $89.98 USD.

The reason no other CAT can quite match the feel of the actual test is that GMAC™ does not license GMAT™ questions to any third party, and if anyone, individual or company, gets too close to matching the language of official material, that party can be sued for copyright infringement. You can read reviews of third-party CATs if you decide to access them, but some may prove more useful than others, and again, nothing beats official material.

Good luck with your studies, and if you have further questions, feel free to ask.

Hi mahmoudalisber,

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 (the 2 free CATs, and each of the 2 that come with Exam Pack 1 and Exam Pack 2), but retaking a CAT that you've already taken is NOT a realistic way to assess your skills - since you will likely see some 'repeat' questions that you have already faced. Unfortunately, seeing even a couple of repeats can 'throw off' the Scoring Algorithm and impact your pacing, energy levels, fatigue, etc. (meaning that they would likely all appear to be better than they actually are). 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 correctly take the CAT in a realistic fashion).

Based on your original post, it's not clear how long you have been studying, so before I can offer you any additional advice, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall 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?

Hi mahmoudalisber,

If you have studied for a month already, then you really MUST take a FULL-LENGTH CAT (including the Essay and IR sections) sometime soon. That initial diagnostic CAT is important - it helps to define your strengths and weaknesses and gives you a basis for comparison as you continue to study. Most Test Takers are not happy with that first CAT result, but that's not a big deal - the extra months of available study time are there so that you can IMPROVE on this initial practice result.

Since you have less than 2 months of study time remaining, and a Score Goal of 700+, we need to know as much about your current skills as possible. As such, I strongly recommend that you take one of the Official GMAC CATs and take it in a realistic fashion (take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.). Once you have that score, you should report back here and we can discuss the results and how best to proceed.

HI MI83,

I’m glad to see that you plan to take a full-length MBA.com practice exam. Once you take the practice test, feel free to report back with your score breakdown, and I can provide some further advice. In the meantime, you may find it helpful to read the following article:
