Hi,

I've done six of them so far. IMO, they are pretty good for additional practice – especially in verbal. The difficulty of verbal questions is said to be realistic enough. Also, their ‘feeling’ is true to the real GMAT, and in that they are much better than the verbal questions of alternative CAT-providers, even the best ones.

Quant is too easy there (esp. if you are targeting 45+), but also could be useful to train your stamina and to avoid careless mistakes.

Test structure for paper tests is different from the present-day GMAT, as you probably know; but still, they could give you rather accurate estimation of your score.

Overall, I think these tests are definitely worth buying if you seek to improve verbal.
For quant, I’d recommend Gmatclub’s Challenges.

Good luck!

I personally don't think the paper tests are worth it. You have to take adaptive tests. Paper tests may be okay for general practice, but you're better off with the three official guides for that...they're more current.

There is a lot of overlap between the paper tests and the OGs.

yeah I wouldn't spend any money for those paper tests. Back then GMAT was designed differently and student were tested differently. The quantitative part does not worth an effort. I'd rather do those sets as there are 30 of them out there and if you are done with them, you can always repeat the effort - you will be amazed how very few you actually rememberd!

They are fantastic -- I would highly recommend them. I'm a professional tutor, and I highly recommend using them in your preperation. Remember, that the paper tests have on average 103-108 questions, so they have many more questions than the actual GMAT (78). Be aware though, that the Quantitative is a LOT easier than what you will see on the GMAT (GMATPrep is much better for the Quant), but the Verbal is just as hard if not harder. Especially Paper Test 52-- try the CR. It will rock you.

There are 9 paper tests for sale on the official site: mba.com

And, yes, each set contain 106-108 questions. In total 900+ questions, many of which are in the OGs. Those sets are better than non-official sets.
