How accurate is this test for the purpose of identifying weak areas in Math?

I took the diagnostic and I felt like it tested a lot of finer details. But the GMAT Club tests, in general, are really good practice material if you want to hit the 700+ level consistently. You might score low on these tests, but it'll be fruitful in the end to look at concepts you've missed and brush up on them.

As far as the diagnostic goes specifically, I'd say that you might want to just look through the answers and explanations and gauge your weak areas roughly and then use some other guide book like MGMAT or Quant Review or so to brush up on ALL the concepts before getting back to GMAT Club tests.

I might be wrong, but I feel that GMAT Club Tests should be towards the latter part of your preparation.

Hope this helps!

The main purpose is to poke holes in your prep; for understanding your score/position/etc, would much more recommend GMAT Prep.

I'd take gmat club diagnostic AFTER you have covered the quant section.

Thanks for your answers. I wanted to take the Diagnostic test after quant preparation. So what you are saying is that it's an accurate tool to identify weak areas?

You have lots of official questions + verbal and quant OG's as well.

So it wont harm you if you use diag test. Keep Gmatprep for later use.

This is my first post on my journey.

I gave the diagnostics test a go for an hour on non-timed mode and felt that it was really painful, since I wanted to use it as a way to see what it felt like to do a CAT.

I already noticed that I spent way too much time, didn't step through the questions enough, don't remember formulae to solve the questions etc etc.

Also, doing a diagnostic test after work is a gruelling experience, especially if you start at 9pm.

I think tomorrow I'll start reading through OG12.

I've got an exam date booked for 28th April. I think if I invest and stay dedicated I can succeed.
