I uninstalled the software and reinstalled and I am probably getting about 1/3 repeats from the 1st time I took it for Quant and a little more for the verbal. I was expecting to see a lot more fresh problems.

are the GMAT Prep questions/practice tests renewed periodically, or it's the same practices all the time?

I've tried installing GMAT prep v 2005 on two different computers. The file downloads just fine...but when I try to run the .EXE set up file...nothing happens. Has anyone else encountered this issue? will appreciate constructive and prompt feedback. thank you!


You should set compatibility settings on this file to be windows 2000 or windows Xp.
It runs fine on my windows 7 :?


bb,
Can you please tell me how to set this compatibility settings? Where do I turn it on? The powerprep available on this website should be installed in another folder from GMATprep? Do they conflict? I already have GMATprep installed and wanted to know how to get powerprep going.. I am continuing the discussion you just replied to earlier..Thanks

Ok thanks, I will look at the link (I was not even aware of something like compatibility settings). Sorry, did not mean to ask you for computer help itself, thought there was a quick fix for it..

Guys
If you can help me here.. I installed powerprep and even asked it to run in compatibility mode (xp).. Yet I get the same message - something about mismatch in version.. x 86 etc.. Can you tell me what might need done here? Thanks

Hello ppl, Is there any way to review the essays submitted in the GmatPrep practice tests? The review screen at the end of the test shows only quant and verbal questions.

what operating system are you using? mac, xp,linux etc? A stretch but can you check maybe your firewall *might* be blocking it someway? Also, if you are using windows 7 maybe check compatibility ?

I don't think there is a mac version out, but you can use parallels or vmware to run an instance of windows to run it.

I gave powerprep today and I was unable to concentrate in the verbal section. The interface was so irritating that I was not even able to answer the questions I had already done on OG12 and Og verbal2.

I got terrible score in verbal and I m really :cry: .

Guys those who have done this powerprep, kindly share your thoughts. Its really de-motivating.

I will give gmatprep in a couple of days to judge my level, but I seriously thought that powerprep will be a good supplement to build the stamina and confidence.

Though I haven't taken the CAT from powerprep but I have installed it on my laptop, it changed my whole graphics! It looks terrible!! Also I don't think it will have correct algorithm that is working at present, so it would be better for you to take gmatprep and access where you stands right now.

I installed it for the same reasons mentioned by you :)

I m not concerned with the algo, but I have seen people scoring high on powerprep. So I felt disappointed.

A big overlap with the og's and still I was feeling dizzy.
The interface is so weired that I m having headache now.

I will give gmatprep in a day or two. :lol:

I have always advised others to give gmatprep on time, but I myself havn't given one because of fear for verbal.

But you should at least give one gmatprep now, as ideally by reinstalling we can get 4 tests with fewer overlaps.
I m also planning to give soon...lets see...I have dropped my plan for powerprep.

Only Gmatprep and mgmat Cat's.


I have one concern regarding the pool banks for two tests. If someone can confirm whether they have different or same pools, it will be very helpful to plan further.

See you might get common questions from OG 10 i guess.However note Powerprep belongs to ETS whereas gprep Pearson.So there should be a difference.

I was actually asking about the pools of two tests of Gmatprep.
