I have some questions:
What should be my next step? Should I reinstall?
Will I get repeat questions if I do GMATPrep 1 again after I reinstall?



You may/probably will one or two but with having taken only one test, not sure that it will matter.
Try updating the compatibility settings. Right click the shortcut to GMATPrep and choose compatibility tab - sometimes it helps. Also, if you updated your Java, that may be the reason....

Updating compatibility settings helped. I can review the questions now :-D

Thanks a lot bb!!!

BTW, this may have already been covered in this thread (I looked quickly and didn't see it)...

GMAC has confirmed that the new edition of GMATPrep software will indeed be Mac-compatible. It will launch in early April, 2012.

Mac people, rejoice! :-D

Maybe I'm just reading right over it, but if you "reset" the software, it won't be computer adaptive when you take it again? So if you get a question wrong, it will through another at you randomly without regard to how you just did? If so, then the score at the end really doesn't matter right?

Hi Ulm,

You posted this one year ago. Did you take GMAT after it? Do you think the real test is in same difficulty level as Prep, especially, for the Quant.?

Thanks

For folks running into issues installing the new GMATPrep

I had the same problem on a Windows 7 64bit machine.
I also had installed Nitro PDF Professional.

Steps to make it work:
1. Uninstall Nitro PDF Professional
2. Make sure that the Nalpeiron Licensing Service is gone (Right click on "Computer"->Manage->Services and Application->Services and see if you find it in that list.)
3. If it is not gone, you have to remove it using the command prompt entering the following command:
"sc delete nlsX86cc"
That will delete the service and consequently allow GMATPrep to install successfully.

Hope this helps,
Kevin

Hey!
Is is worth taking the powerPrep GMAT tests since this was administered by ETS prior to 2006? Are the formats and question types still similar? I did take GMAT Prep and am trying to save the second one for the final week prior to my test day.

I've figured out a way to reset the new GmatPrer2012 based on adobe AIR and extract individual question timing information from the app. I'm taking my GMAT tomorrow, so I will post more about this later.

I just noticed that there's already a reset button in the app :P Anyhow, the individual timing information will be atleast useful

Hey guys,

When I try to run Powerprep application, it tells me that my version of Windows is not compatible...

I have the earliest version of the Windows...

Does anyone have an idea how to resolve this issue?!

Thanks!

You mean you have Windows 3.1? Or that the heck is the earliest version? Probably not going to run on it.

PowerPrep 1999 - 2005 (overlaps with OG)

Collection of all SC questions from GMAT Prep (don't take these until you have exhausted all of the tests)



1. What is GMAT Prep and where to download GMAT Prep?:
GMATPrep is a GMAT Simulator software provided by GMAC (General Management Admissions Council) for free to help MBA applicants prepare to the test.
It can be downloaded from GMAC's official website (MBA.com) http://www.mba.com/mba/TheGMAT/DownloadFreeTestPreparationSoftware/

2. Why is GMATPrep valuable?
The value of GMAT prep is that it is able to predict one's GMAT score more accurately than any other product on the market.
The key lies in using real gmat questions and same testing algorithm as GMAT. Also GMAT Prep test has the same interface as the real GMAT test, so that the experience from taking the GMAT Prep is very similar to the one in the test centre . No other product is able to provide this value.


3. Getting the Most out of GMAT Prep
Now there is a number of different strategies on how to use GMAT Prep tests most effectively. And the answer to which one is the best, of course is — it depends.
Most people agree that its good to keep one test till the end of the preparation process to use it as an accurate estimator of the GMAT score.

Though some people recommend to take it more than two times... one or two extra times in order to get new questions. Some real fans even go to the extent of squeezing all the life out of it by taking the test until they don't see any new questions. It's up to you to decide whether this is a good strategy for you. But if you ever want to take GMAT Prep more then twice here is how to do it:

GMAT Prep "Reset" - Reinstall
1.Go to C:\Program Files\GMATPrep\Exams
2.Within the Exams folder, you should see a Practice Test 1.log and a Practice Test 2.log
3.Delete or I'd say move to other location both logs*
4.Relaunch the GMAT Prep software, and it should show you that both practice exams are now Not Attempted, and you can take them again.

GMAT Prep "Reset" - Reinstall in Windows Vista (Special thanks: to bigoyal for researching this)
1. Basically same as above only GMATPrep creates folder in following location:
C:\Users\{user_name}\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\GMATPrep\exams
Note: {user_name} is your user name, it will vary from system to system
2. Usually you can go directly to AppData folder by typing in "%appdata" - in explorer window
3. Make sure explorer shows hidden files

Feedback from GMAT Club Members:
- Quant question pool is larger than verbal pool; if you take tests multiple times, the chances of seeing new question are higher for the Math section.
- Question pool for “hard” questions is fairly small and chances of seeing new questions when you get to 750+ score range is small.
- AWA questions are static and do not change


*To learn about GMATPrep Log files and how to read them, please see a post directly below


5. Want 2 more adaptive tests? Use PowerPrep
PowerPrep is the previous version of GMATPrep developed by ETS. This software product is no longer supported by GMAC and no longer distributed, but we have a copy. It uses the older GMAT interface and potentially an older GMAT algorithm. Here are a few considerations about using PowerPrep.
1.There seems to be no question overlap between GMAT Prep, and Powerprep
2.There is, however, a significant overlap between OG and Powerprep, so if you already worked on OG, your score might be significantly inflated
3.There are reports that PowerPrep isn't truly adaptive and not as good of an indicator of performance on the real GMAT.

GMAT test reviews, pricing and links.

7. Issues with GMATPrep Software
