Dear All,

I recently gave my third attempt of GMAT and scored 700 (Q-50, V-34, IR-8, AWA-5 ). As I was scoring around 730 in the official practice tests, I am planning to retake GMAT by mid-November to reach my target score of 730+.
Need your suggestions in deciding what material to use and which practice tests to refer

I have already solved 6 official practice tests. Have taken 4 of these tests twice.

Kindly suggest which test series is closest to actual GMAT. I am looking to solve practice tests which are tough in Verbal to be better prepared for actual exam.


Also, I have exhausted most of the official questions. Kindly suggest source of some good practice questions which are closest to actual exam.

Will be grateful if anyone can help me with suggestions. Thanks!

I would recommend that you spend some time reviewing mistakes from the many tests you have already taken. Official ones and GMAT Prep software will be the best ones. Anything else will be secondary no matter how good.

Having said that, many of our students who take our full length practice test report actual scores within +-30 points of what they get on the real test.

We provide this test here: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... ctice-test

A paid membership is required for our expert video explanations for each question but the test itself is free to take.

First of all, figure out whether a retest is really required. A 700 is a good solid score. An increase in the Verbal score will be certainly appreciated though it should not come at the expense of Quant.

Here are a couple of questions from our FAQs that you might find useful:

How close to the real test are these GMAT practice tests?
Veritas Prep designed its practice tests to simulate the official GMAT as closely as possible, both in terms of question quality and how the computer-adaptive algorithm determines your ability level and chooses which questions you see. Our GMAT practice tests draw from a pool of more than 1,400 realistic GMAT questions, each of which is measured on multiple attributes that go far deeper than simply “easy / medium / hard.” Given the adaptive nature of our practice tests, no two test instances will be exactly the same.

How are these different from other GMAT practice tests?
Veritas Prep’s practice tests are built on a platform that employs Item Response Theory (IRT), the same system underlying the real GMAT. Unlike more basic approaches that simply count correct and incorrect responses and then generate a score, IRT recognizes that no two GMAT questions are exactly the same. What question you receive at any given point on a test will be dictated by how well you have performed up to that point, and how you answer that question will impact your ability estimate and help determine which question you see next. The system also takes “content balancing” into account, ensuring that you see a mix of question types that are representative of what you will see on the real GMAT, all while gathering as much information about your ability level as possible.
