Overlap GMAT & SAT - ACT  [#permalink]

I expect to take the GMAT in March '19. I was originally shooting for first week of Nov but it isn't realistic - I've been out too long with too much prep work to do. Around the same time my 16-year-old will be taking the SAT and, probably, also the ACT (a dual enrollment high school / college program she is part of requires they take both). I was wondering if anyone knows how much overlap they have, if she and I could benefit from studying together, and if so what portions best lend themselves to that.

Best,
Matt

Hi. Welcome to GMAT Club!

There is quite a bit of overlap in terms of the material so you can definitely plan to have joint study sessions :-)

Most overlap is in Quant and Reading. Then GMAT has Data Sufficiency question type that’s unique to it and SAT has the synonyms/vocabulary.

GMAT has also Sentence Correvtion and Critical reasoning. I think both are somewhat present in SAT/ACT but not perfect overlap.

However, the general test-taking practices, preparation routines, and daily grind will be pretty similar so you will have a lot of opportunities to bond with your son and hopefully able to save face :-)))!

It's been some time since I last did anything related to the SAT, but there is definitely a lot of overlap between the SAT and the GMAT.

1. Reading tests the same skills, and not just on these two exams.
2. The quantitative concepts tested are pretty much the same.
3. English grammar and usage are also tested in both exams (the GMAT tests some more advanced concepts).
4. Data interpretation is tested, and calculators are allowed in the sections that test DI.

The GMAT is adaptive, so I'd hesitate to say that the SAT is "easier", but I think we can safely say that the GMAT is capable of being tougher than the SAT. On the other hand, the SAT has more question formats (although the GMAT has DS, or data sufficiency), but I think that adapting to and becoming familiar with the test and question formats is relatively easy. Getting your concepts in place is what is really important.

All in all, I think you and your daughter can definitely study together. You just need to watch out for the fact that anyone beyond 30 is basically well past his or her prime ;), so you'd really have to work hard to keep up with your daughter!
