New Shorter Test Version of GMAT Prep Software is coming on April 27 30

GMAC has announced earlier this week that the new GMAT Prep Practice Exams will be available on April 27. However, as a few people pointed out, it leaves a few holes and speculations until the software comes out. The new software will be available here: https://gmatofficialprep.mba.com/SarasExamPrep#/login

Here are the main questions:

1. Will the new version contain any questions?
A: Unlikely but maybe. GMAT prep has not received new questions basically ever.... and the only new questions available has been added as either Exam Packs or Question Packs

2. Will it overwrite the existing history or preserve it?
A: Imagine you took 1 out of 2 free GMAT Prep tests and you upgrade your software - will it overwrite and zero out all history or will it preserve it and allow to take test 2? My take it that it will most likely overwrite the files and tests will be reset (that is my guess based on how rushed this update/conversion was). I hope that GMAT does not do it, but looking at the effort it would require and how short on time they are, most likely GMAC will make the upgrade wipe out history. We'll see if I am wrong

3. Should You Upgrade the GMAT Prep Software?
A: If you have not taken any tests, then yes, definitely. If you have taken 1 out of 2, then you may want to hold off and see what the answer to #2 is

4. Any other changes?
A: Yes, there will be a new online version of the GMAT prep that you will take online and also online versions of GMAT Exam Packs and Question Packs. It is not clear when they will be available but we know GMAC has been beta-testing these a while ago, so it is possible there will be additional announcements (this is one of the reasons there is now a time limit on the Exam Pack and Question Pack subscriptions).

Looks like its back to April 30th, not able to post the link though
Really unfortunate for me, as I have my exam on April 30th, I had planned to give exam pack 1 over the next 2 days

Thanks for posting. I hate to be setup like this by GMAC. I checked last night and it was still 28th. Argh. Annoying. And sorry about your test date.

Point 4 remainds me of ETS and the free software they provide the studens PowerPrep software, now only online-based.

Of course, it is not clear if GMAC will maintain both (offline and online) but I guees the second option soon will overcome the former one.

Another move to catch up the rising GRE ?

I'm not sure whether they will, but they did say that they will keep the software version up for at least a year. Given how critical it is for test takers to have a smooth experience with their practice tests, they really need to make sure that an alternative is available in case issues crop up in the online version.

Hi, The website says that the shorter version of the tests has not been updated on GMAT Prep as yet.

Does anyone have information on when the new shorter test format will be out?

Hi. No new Downloadable GMAT Prep software has been released. Instead GMAC launched an online version of GMAT Prep.
The downloadable version of the GMAT Prep as well as the EP1 and EP2 are not being updated unfortunately.
Instead, GMAC is offering to get replacement activation codes for those who have purchased these earlier.

Have sent a mail to gmatprep@mba.com, asking for revised codes.
Let me know if there is another way to get them.

Are we expecting new questions too in these packs ?

No, no new content is being added to GMAT prep or the Question Packs as a part of this update.
There are plans however to release EP3 and QP2 but I am not sure about the timelines. I am suspecting sooner than later.
