Yeah, but it would be interesting to see what they really are made of

Very interesting website, they claim two things:
1. They have real questions
2. They have modified the questions (so, how are they real?)
It is an attempt to comply with legal issues of selling copyrighted materials and violating GMAC's regulations and sell a product.

Here is a copy of their AboutUS page:

Quote:
The idea of collecting real test questions from students and publishing them worldwide first emerged a few years ago. Ever since, Our team has collected thousands of real test questions from students all around. This material was then edited by several test preparation professionals. They also added their answers and explanations and changed the questions so they will only resemble real test questions.

The result is a large number of tests and questions closely resembeling real exams, answered and explained.

Many students have used these files and reported them as "excellent". Almost all of them attributed a great part of their improvement to knowing most of the test questions in advance.

The point, though is that nobody knows the real/fake questions.
On the other hand, they are not too expensive.

PERSONALLY,

I Don't think it is possible to collect the number of questions they have in a legal manner - my suspicion is that it is GMAT Plus with Answers.

My take...

I agree with BB...that sounds kinda fishy, definitely illegal. We're not supposed to share any test questions once we take the test, and if they modify them, they're not really real, are they?

Stick with the tried and true stuff like the Official Guide, Powerprep, Princeton Review, etc.

Exactly, and the question is HOW did they get so many questions?

And dont other books like PR do the same i.e. modify real gmat questions .. and form new questions based on these questions?
I would say the decision to buy or not depends on how much time you have at your disposal before the test ..

I think you are right about other companies modifying questions, but I don't think PR does it or at least they dont' do it with all of their questions. The reason I am saying this is that some of them are too weird to be real

You are right in the broader sense, however.

I am sure all the question writers for Kaplan and PR, etc base their questions and tie them to the general boundaries of the OG's questions.

I bet you these companies like Kaplan and Princeton hire GMAT "spies" ex employees of ETS, to aid in development of questions. And I also think members of this team take the GMAT test, to see what kind of questions are on it each year.

I would think that it is a reverse actually; I think whoever compiled GMAT+ copied a lot of stuff from Kaplan, but who can prove anything in the unjust world of the GMAT?

Kap800 cloned OG and papertests. Such incontrovertible evidence is enough to say they copied from gmat+.

Well, of course the test prep companies send their employees to take the test! How could they know the real deal on the GMAT if they don't take it?

Unless Kaplan licensed the OG questions, they could not legally reproduce them in their books, and I highly doubt ETS would give them a license when they sell their own books, and that Kaplan would obtain those questions and then not brag loudly that they had real GMAT questions in their books. Princeton Review and Kaplan write their own practice questions and tests, and send their experts in so they stay on top of trends, changes, patterns, etc. But it's illegal for them to reproduce questions, so I guarantee you they don't!

I have full access to Manhattan Prep, which is considered among the top echelon GMAT Prep companies. I also have all three OG's (Official, Verbal, and Quant), and the 800Kaplan. Let me tell you, if you can discern amongst good bloggers (which is not hard to do) and figure out who to follow, this site is a GOLDMINE!!! I have used this forum's answer explanations continuously, it has an abundance of problems on all subject types and level difficulties. So, if you are struggling with any one particular area (such as combinations and permutations for me), you will not be restricted to eight-ten overlapping sets problems on the OG, but will have numerous sources from which to practice and improve your skills. I consider myself to be a very discerning user, and value my leisure and study time. Let me assure you, you won't go wrong with this site. --nb: Bunuel has particularly insightful answer explanations that you will not get even from Manhattan Prep. Also, tried the Sentence Correction element of GMATPill, and can definitely tell you, it's a piece of trash, if you want to build any semblance of an accurate verbal foundation.
