Query regarding MGMAT Online Tests Access  [#permalink]

New post 21 Feb 2020, 11:48
Hello everyone,

I am currently in the process of beginning my GMAT preparations and was making a list of all the materials I could require so as to estimate my net spend.
The MGMAT books happen to be extremely popular and I was looking to purchase the set of 3 verbal books (SC, CR and RC).

I just wanted to know as to how many MGMAT Mocks will I get access to on the purchase of 1 SC/CR/RC book. Is it one test per book or do you get access to the whole 6 tests on purchase of any one book?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello,

Welcome to GMAT Club

MGMAT has consolidated all 3 verbal books to 1 verbal book in latest edition.

Also you get one practice tests with a verbal book or quant book. To get all 6 tests you either have to buy both the Quant and Verbal books or just buy the practice tests seperately from MGMAT site.

Firstly, thanks for the reply.

Had a bit of a doubt regarding the difference between ordering the MGMAT - ALL The Verbal book vs the earlier individual SC, CR and RC books.

I thought if I would order those 3 individually, I'd get access to 3 practice tests (1 each). Also, I saw a post on gmatclub explaining how the number of questions have been reduced a bit in the latest edition.

Kindly let me know if I am correct regarding the access I'd get to the practice tests

Regards.

Hi anuragkumar08,

You might find it worthwhile to reach out to MGMAT's Customer Support Team and asking directly.

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Hi Rich,

Thanks for your reply. I shall definitely try contacting the Manhattan Prep Support team.

You made a good point about me taking my first CAT early on in the preparations. I had actually taken a Mock Test on the Economist website a few days back. Scored a 700 on it with a 51 in Quant. I am not exactly sure how accurate that mock is but seeing the posts here, it lacks in comparison with the OG Mocks or the MGMAT's and Veritas CAT's.

So, today I decided to go ahead with the Full Length CAT 1. To my surprise, I managed a 730 (51 Quant, 38 Verbal and 7 IR). I must however admit, I did struggle very much in my Verbal section and was even clueless in my approach to certain problems. I have identified SC and CR as my glaring weaknesses. I feel I am quite strong in Quant, but I do want to maximise my Quant score in the actual test so I will need to practice those 700+ problems that will boost my score from say a 48/49 to a 50/51.
Further analysis of my mock CAT on : Got 8/16 Data Sufficiency questions incorrect. Got 8/12 SC's incorrect. Got 3 CR questions incorrect as well. No mistakes in RC and just 1 in the Problem Solving one.

My Goal Score is 750. 700+ is a bare minimum I aspire to get as I am targeting one of the top 20 B-Schools in the US. ISB is another option but since I happen to be yet another average engineer in this overcrowded market, only a 720+ will suffice.

I am planning to write GMAT in mid/end June. That gives me about 3 months to prepare (I will need to take a 2 week break in March for some personal reasons).

Currently I am in my Pre-final year of college and have absolutely no work experience. Depending on my GMAT scores, I might try my luck with some deferred MBA programs like Yale's or the ISB YLP or even HBS 2+2. I am yet to make a comprehensive list of all such deferred MBA programs. I don't mind working for 2-3 odd years and applying later with work ex as well but I feel this is the correct time for me to write the GMAT since I have free time to prepare. Also, the scores being valid for 5 years is a huge plus point.

Hope I answered your question.

Hi anuragkumar08,

Assuming that you took these practice CATs under realistic testing conditions, then the results show that you're already a really strong overall critical thinker (the Average Score on the Official GMAT hovers around 550 most years, so you clearly have the ability to perform at a much higher level than that). You could potentially hit 750+ in a month, so you won't necessarily have to spend as much time on your studies as you have planned for (although it's great that you have given yourself that time).

From your analysis of your 2nd CAT performance, your immediate 'need' is making sure that you know the necessary grammar/idiom rules for SCs. If you're currently choosing SC answers based on how they "sound", then that could potentially cost you some significant points in the Verbal section.

Based on these initial Scores, I suggest that you study as you like for the next 2-3 weeks, then take a NEW, FULL-LENGTH CAT - and make sure to take it in a realistic fashion (take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.). Once you have that score, you should report back here and we can discuss the results and how you might adjust your studies.

Hi anuragkumar08,

730 with almost no prep is a fantastic start! Since you mentioned that you struggled with SC and CR, if you’d like some advice on how to improve in those topics, feel free to reach back out. You also may find it helpful to read the following article:

Good luck!
