So they took too long to update the desktop version, pulled the date, and in a panic just cut the question # and time without readjusting question type distribution.

Hi jsheppa, Yes, exactly! Frustrating.

It seems that exam packs and question packs purchased before 16 January 2018 cannot be transferred to the online version and hence will require a fresh purchase. However, the content will remain the same.

I also ran a question-type count on the new online Quant section: 18 PS and 13 DS.

Hi sharan05,

Thanks for sharing the news. As a person who bought both of the paid Exam Packs and Question Pack 1 immediately after their release, I'm not sure why I would pay $120 all over again, for access to all the exact same questions that I already have access to on the old desktop software, just because the test is now a bit shorter.

Best of all, with the desktop software I don't even need an internet connection! Oh GMAC... :suspect This policy is also sure to have repercussions in areas of the world that lack reliable internet access.

HI,
GMAC wont be updating the desktop version it seems.
Check FAQs of GMAT® Official Practice Exams and Practice Questions.



" In addition to this, our developers will no longer support the existing platform and we will not push any new updates to the GMATPrep® software."

Its really frustrating for those who bought the exam packs prior to Jan2018.

The new Verbal section of Exam 1

13 SC, 14 RC, 9 CR. RC is highest, followed by SC and CR is lowest.

The new Quantitative section of Exam 1

PS 18, DS 13

I believe that you have until May 11 to request new activation codes in case some of you missed this buried in the fine print

It looks like the bastards have changed this section of the FAQ since I posted this screenshot. It looks like they have taken down the text and replaced it with a different policy. If you notice the subject line they instruct you to use is "GMAT Prep Activation Code Exchange Request", but now it say to use "Free Migration". As it read previously, it looked as if old activation codes purchased Jan 1 on would work, and that you had until May 11 to email for new activation codes that will work. It looks like they had considered letting you port your old codes over and then took it down. I cant find the image I attached anywhere on the site. Good thing I already emailed them. I encourage anyone who purchased EXAM Pack's 1 and 2 before Jan 1 to email them and use the screenshot I attached ASAP.

So those who bought EP1 and EP2 in 2017 have to purchase it again?

Seriously? Why should we pay again because of these uncalled changes!

Can anyone confirm?

Hi Mehemmed,

You probably have to enable pop-up windows on your browser--that's what worked for me. I can imagine all sorts of technical glitches that will arise with this transition to online-only GMATPrep tests, as has also been the case with ETS's rocky transition to online versions of the GRE PowerPrep tests.

I can also confirm that the uber-helpful, time-saving keyboard shortcuts do NOT work on the cloud-based, online GMATPrep tests.

It should also be noted that the "Score Report" (after an exam has been completed) on the "new" GMATPREP online platform only shows your overall performance but no longer shows you a more detailed breakdown of your performance in each quant subcategory (PS, DS, Arithmetic, Algebra/Geometry) or in each verbal subcategory (SC, RC, CR)

The "old" desktop platform at least gave you this data so you could have a better understanding on where to focus your efforts :(
