Is the actual gmat exam as difficult as the gmat prep?
I find the quant in these tests difficult. Gave two tests ( Q49,Q47).

The GMAT (and the GMATPreps) are adaptive, so there is no one difficulty "level" that we can look for. That said, the GMATPreps are quite representative of the GMAT exam, but they don't take actual exam pressure into account. If you're asking only about the content, then yes, the questions in the practice tests and the GMAT are quite similar. In fact, GMATPreps use only retired GMAT questions.

GMAT prep tests are the most representative tests to check your level for actual GMAT. Other test prep companies are on and off with their content and difficulty levels, though they are good for practice as there are limited numbers of GMAT prep tests.

My recommendation is to worry less about what your score is on these practice CAT tests. These best predictors are the GMATPrep ones - and even then, it's not necessarily a perfect representation of the actual test.

So the most you can worry about is just getting WHATEVER comes at you correct. You should be familiar with what to expect and the types of concepts.

More importantly, to do well, you need to be familiar with what is likely being tested, where the booby traps, where you should focus your attention, and where you should avoid wasting time.

These are small, but critical elements that add up and affect your score -- and you actually have control over these. So don't fret over things you don't have control over -- such as the specific algorithm that is used to calculate a total score for you.

That said, if you are looking for an extra practice test, many of our students at GMAT Pill report scores within +-30 points of what they get on the actual test:

Hi Kp1703,

The GMATPrep tests are designed to closely emulate the real GMAT.

I see that you have taken a few practice exams. For how long have you been studying for the GMAT? What is your GMAT score goal? When do you plan to take the GMAT?

If you have any further questions, please reach out.
