In that case, how about just google "Everything official CR GMAT" or "Everything official SC GMAT"?

Yes, you could do that instead, but then you would miss out on the realism / interface / timing of the actual GMATPrep software, and you would be assuming that all of these questions have already been correctly posted on GMAT Club, which is not the case. Also, once the software is downloaded, my method obviates the need for internet access: you can simply install the (free) software on your computer and have 1,500 practice questions at your disposal, as long as you have access to electricity and a computer.

Regarding step #2, screenshots should take no more than 1 second each for most users. For more information on how to take and auto-save GMAT question screenshots on Windows and Mac, please check out the below thread:

Re: How to access all 1,500 Questions from your Free GMATPrep tests [#permalink]
Hello, Brian, how are you?

I fully agree with your statement , that using GMAT Official questions instead synthetic one brings far more advantages than disadvantages
I believe that through this method, we stay much more in contact with both the language and the kind of thinking that GMAT uses.

I would like to know where I can find resolution for these items below
1) 1500 questions from GMAT Prep Software
2) Question Pack 1
3) 400 questions from Exam PACK 1 and 2

Do you know if someone had the perspicacity to compile all these three items and solve them?
That would be the ultimate surpassing !!!

Kind Regards from Brazil :thumbup:

Hi Rodolfo,

For copyright reasons, there is nowhere on GMAT Club with explanations to all the questions from the 4 (3 of which are paid) official sources that you mentioned in one place. However, you can try searching the Question Bank by tags to find explanations to individual questions from those sources:

GMAT Prep Software
Exam Pack 1
Exam Pack 2
Question Pack 1

...or you can simply google search the first few words of each question, and a GMAT Club link will most likely pop up.

-Brian

Re: How to access all 1,500 Questions from your Free GMATPrep tests [#permalink]
Hello, Brian,

As you suggested, I am only practicing trough OG exercises - [OG Review: 15, 16, 17, 18 + OG (Verb & Quant): 15, 16, 17, 18].
After completing them my intention is to start doing the GMAC Pack Question.

Since I am forcing myself to solve SC questions under 1:30, I am missing a lot of Medium/Hard SC questions from OG.

Question:

a) Should I go back to these exercises , in the same day, and solve them without time pressure?
b) Should I read and understand their resolution; wait 2 days, and them go back to them? Still under pressure time?

note1: Since I am on vacations, my next 30 days will be dedicated only for GMAt
note2: my test is in relative short time (28 days from now), and I still need to study RC.


Best, Rodolfo

Hi Rodolfo,

Timed exercises are overrated, in my opinion, especially early in the prep process. I understand that your test is in only 3 weeks, but you have to start somewhere, and you can't rush it. First, you need to learn how to get the question right in 3-5 minutes, and force yourself to do a full, detailed analysis of every answer choice, indicating why the correct answer is correct, but also precisely why the incorrect answers are incorrect. Over time, you will get faster, and hopefully by the time the test arrives, you can average 1.5-2 minutes per Verbal question.

My advice: relax and put down the stopwatch. When preparing for the GMAT, especially in the early stages but also in the late stages, it is important to not worry too much about time pressure, and to not take too many practice tests, which only builds bad habits if you don't learn the concepts properly the first time. Just take it one question at a time, don't rush, and learn the material at a pace that is comfortable for you!

You have to learn to crawl before you learn to walk, and you have to learn to walk before you learn to run. Timed tests and drills certainly have a place in the prep process, but timing your practice is not always a good idea.

Good luck,
Brian

Re: How to access all 1,500 Questions from your Free GMATPrep tests [#permalink]
Hi mcelroytutoring and thank you for the information on Gmat Official practice tests, It was very useful.

I still have some doubts though:
- Why do you keep talking about 90 questions?
Aren't they just 79 for each exam? (31 Quant +36 Verbal + 12 IR)

- What is the point of buying exam packs 3 and 4 from the official platform if you can redo exams 1 and 2 as many times as you want?
You gain acces to a new bank of 1500 questions?

Best regards from Barcelona.

Because when I wrote the original post, the GMAT did indeed have 90 questions total. Only recently was the total number of questions reduced to 79.

Actually, the total bank for the paid tests is much smaller...more like 300 questions.

Don't go by just the number of questions in the pool. The paid exam packs can be very useful.

@McelroyTutoring- I have a pert question. Do you think practicing these@ 1500 questions can add great value. I am scoring around 43 in Quant. Practising these 1500 Questions, can i take the score to around 48 or 49?

Hi Clifford123,

While you should certainly be careful about using relevant and realistic practice materials to train for the GMAT, if you are 'stuck' at a Q43 right now, then the issue is far more likely to be HOW you are approaching the Quant section of the Exam (and not how many official questions you have worked through so far). For example, if you have developed any 'bad habits' (or are otherwise working in inefficient ways), then working through hundreds of additional practice questions (from any source) won't necessarily fix those issues and get you to a Q49.

Before I can offer you any additional advice for your studies, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far? What “brands” of CATs/mocks have you used?
3) On what dates (or approximate dates) did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School and what Schools are you planning to apply to?
