All the 6 official GMAT Prep tests are used up during my GMAT 2nd attempt. Even if I attempt them again, most of the questions will be repeated and that won't be useful to know my mock scores. What are other good mocks tests options apart from GMAT Prep to prepare for GMAT in this case?

Hi abannore,

The most realistic CATs available are the 6 from GMAC, but retaking a CAT that you've already taken is NOT a realistic way to assess your skills. Seeing even a few 'repeat' questions can 'throw off' the Scoring Algorithm and impact your pacing, energy levels, fatigue, etc. (meaning that they would likely all be better than they normally would be). Thankfully, the CATs from Kaplan, MGMAT and Veritas are all 'close enough' to the real thing that they will provide you with a relatively realistic score assessment (assuming that you use the CAT correctly).

If you've studied for (and taken) the GMAT twice - and ended up with results that you were not happy with - then some adjustments to your studies will almost certainly have to be made (far more than just working with a new set of practice CATs). As such, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) What were your two Official GMAT Scores (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
2) How long did you study before each attempt?
3) What study materials have you used so far?
4) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
7) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
8) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

As already has been mentioned, various test prep companies offer practice exams that you can take. However, keep in mind that when you take practice tests from companies other than GMAC, you may find some variation in algorithms used and thus variations in your score. That being said, given that you are studying for your third attempt, I recommend that you wait to start taking practice exams until you feel you have fully developed your GMAT quant and verbal skills.

Good luck!

Hi abannore,

Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests, Veritas Prep Tests and Experts' Global CATs in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Hope this helps. All the best!
