Hello everyone! :-D

I am very happy to have access to such a fantastic resource with many of the posts I have already read making a big impact on me.

I currently have access to about 20 CAT practice tests, including 6 from Kaplan, Manhattan, and Veritas. Of course, the GMATPREP tests are the most predictive, but if I were to take, for example, 6 of these other tests, is it a good idea to take 2 from each bundle, or to take 6 from one particular company? I have taken one from GMATPREP and scored a 670, I have around a month left of studying and hope to score a 700+

All the best,
Kevin

Hi Kev,

Honestly, i have not used tests other than GC tests, Manhattan and ofcourse GMATPREP.

Now since you have 1 month left, you can easily use 6 tests from Manhattan and 1 test (at least if you not count taking the test again after a reset) from GMATPREP .

I would suggest you to refrain from using multiple test companies since every company approaches the score calculation in a different way. And we being anxious humans, will tend to find a logic behind the scoring and lose our focus.

Also, Manhattan tests are supposedly one of the best resource you can find. I used them for my first prep and found the verbal very close to the actual GMAT.
But use the GMAT PREP in the last, since it uses the actual test logic to score (hence the best measure).

Also, if you want, you can buy EP1 and EP2 from GMAC.com and use only the official tests. It wont be cheap but may be worth it.

All the best!!

+1 Kudos if the answer helps.

Hi Kevin,

Take a GMATPrep test, to know what your pitfalls are, and do specific area wise practice.

You could use Manhattan/Veritas question banks in order to practice questions(in a timed environment).
Then use the GMATPrep tests merely as a tool to understand if those errors have been rectified.
If you have not completed the OG, try your hand on the OG.
You could also practice questions from the Math OG and the Verbal OG.

Hope that helps you
