Any opinions regarding the difficulty level of Jamboree tests for GMAT? I know the scoring algorithm is far from the real one but I wanted to check if my accuracy actually means anything. I personally found them to be a bit easy, especially Verbal.

You are right on algorithm. You can cross verify the level of some of the questions and try to find on GC. It might happen that you are continuously solving easy/medium questions. I hope you will get an idea with cross verification. Try to give an official mock and you will know more precisely.

Hi keshav1895,

Welcome to GMATCLUB! I would only rely on a few prep test companies whose practice tests I would consider taking as it is very important to practice with high quality questions especially when you are a few weeks away from your real GMAT.

Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase Official GMAT practice Question form mba.com for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Quite frankly Jamboree has used the original questions in their tests
You can have the scoring algorithm blamed for any test
But
Jamboree has like the original like tests due to digitalisation of the old GMAT prep Paper based tests
Best way to judge yourself is by checking if you got all the easy questions right and how many hard ones you got right, i.e. less than 20% PEOPLE GOT IT right.
By far Jamboree is still the one I prefer close to the Real exam. The score will also be near what they predict, more actually

I have some concern with the Jamboree course. A friend of mine showed me some practice questions from the official test and the Jamboree course and they seem like exact copies. If I use the Jamboree course first, this would ruin the official practice exams, right? How unrealistic would my score be if it is based on questions I've answered already? The official practice tests are the most important, I feel that those people would end up losing the 6 most important tests available if they took Jamboree first. I haven't used Jamboree myself, but I feel that it would be detrimental to someone practicing for the GMAT.

There are quiZzes that are from the old paper based test. Instead of 12 full length tests, use those
