Dear All,
There are 5 attempts in the GMATPrep mocks, if I am not wrong. Recently I gave my first attempt and got 660. Still I have the 2nd mock fresh in hand. So should I reattempt the first one again or go to the second one. I guess in reattempting, the questions will repeat and wouldnt fetch my true score.
Please advice.
Thanks

You can attempt the free GMATPreps (1 & 2) as many times as you want, but the reliability of your score will drop after each attempt. The paid GMATPreps (3-6) can be reset only once. Generally, if you are just getting started with your prep, feel free to take some of your tests again. If you are close to your exam, retaking a practice test is unlikely to be useful.

In your case, you should not reset your tests right now. What pressing reset now will do is "release" the questions you've already done into the pool of questions available for test 2 as well (tests 1 & 2 share the same pool of questions). If you really want to take any of these tests again, you should take both 1 and 2 and then press the reset button.

Thanks for your advice.
Just another fact; I have my GMAT on march 9th. So having given the first mock, now should I give the second one and then rest and give one more?

It depends, but a couple of practice tests at this stage sounds reasonable.

Hi raghavrf,

Rather than resetting and retaking the first GMAT prep exam, I’d take a new fresh exam.

That said, what is your GMAT score goal? For how long have you been studying?

You also may find it helpful to read this article about Taking GMAT Practice Tests.

Feel free to reach out with further questions.

Good luck!
