Hi Guys,
first of all I wanna thank all of you, who make GMAT challenges. You did a great job. Some questions were a real challenge.

http://www.gmatclub.com/wiki/Tests

second, thanks to Praetorean and Paul for giving me access to them. I have already taken 22 out of 25 challenge archives. Saved 3 for the last week before the exam.

Now, as I have the results of most of the challenges, I would like to know, what is the correlation between the results of Challenge and real GMAT quant.
Hence, ALL who have taken both exam and GMAT chall., please post your results here. I believe, it will be interesting for all challenge takers.

thank you,
Regards

Guys, I have compiled all results in one file, please see results and correlation.

I took all 25 Challenges 3.5 weeks before my test (almost one challenge per day which is crazy but I felt great after taking all of them)

My socres for first 10 challenges were all over the park 57-90%. Later on I consistently scored 85-98%. Still I got a couple of horroble scores in in the last 15, but overall the avergae was around 90.

GMAT socre: Q-50 (95%)

PS: Don't worry too much of the scores and correlation. Most iportant aspect is to learn the concepts and you can learn a lot from Challenges. The challenges also help you develop a better thought process. The most important skill I learnt from challenges is to recognize the difficultly level of a question and guess after 2-3 minues. After a few trails I had a 80% hit ratio on questions that I guessed (of course EDUCATED guess - esp in DS) On the test day you have put your EGO in the locker and then take the test. Don't spend too much time on a single question. And I don't believe in the FOCUS on the fist 20Questions myth. Manage time better and give everyquestion your best shot.

Good luck!

Real quant score - 48 (86th percentile)

Early on, I did very poorly on the challenges. By the end, I was averaging in the 70-80th percentile I think --- hit 90th percentile on 1 or 2 challenges, but not consistently. Did not keep detailed notes on them, but did write down (on flash cards) the problems I got wrong, to ensure I was learning from my mistakes.

Definitely use the challenges -- they kick your butt at first, but over time really improve your quant score.

Do you know if the Club tests are easier at the beginning and than get harder to the end?

Done the first 11 in the last week. My almost emotional assessment on their difficulty levels is as follows:

1 - very easy
2 - easy
3/4 - average
5 - difficult
6/7/8 - insane
9/10 - difficult
11 - average

Regardless of their level of difficulty, I made an exorbitant number of careless mistakes on the first three exams. And on exams 6, 7 and 8 I had to retort to a technique that is better avoided: guessing left and right.

These challenges are fantastic.

Dear leoaueb,

Challanges are not free and are web based. You don't need to install anything on your PC. All the challanges (25 in all) can be purchased for $79 only.

One way would be participate in the forum and contribute at least 200 high quality posts to the forum. As a courtesy, we provide free access to members who make good contributions. 2. I am not sure how feasible this is , but you may consider sending a personal check to us. Send us a message at payments at gmatclub dot com if you would need our mailing address. Please let us know.

I intend to download them right away. My quant scores are usually high in Kaplan CATs (90%+) but I need to make sure that I have every angle covered! However, today I gave up hope on verbal. It seems impossible for me to score in these Kaplan CATs higher than 33-70%. I have 5 scores in a row between 670-690 (because of Verbal and especially RC). I cannot break the 700 barrier. Hopefully this whole theory that KAPLAN CATs are more difficult than the real deal are true. We'll see...! Two weeks to go!

real gmat - 51 (99%)

the challenge interface was being re-done during most of this time so the built in timer wasn't working. thus you could keep going after 75 minutes. i started timing myself. scores marked with a * indicate when i went past the 75 minute mark. in some cases i spent up to 100 minutes. my goal early was on to learn how to do every question, even if it meant struggling during the test. then, from test 16 onwards or so, i was very good at doing the majority of question types. i then started to focus on test-taking strategy and would skip questions in the interest of time. by the last 3-4 challenges i was finishing a few minutes early. also, i would absolutely recommend that you go back and review each question whether you got it right or wrong. make sure you are tackling the problem the fastest way. i spent about 2 hours total on each challenge...75 taking the test and 40 minutes or so reviewing each question and re-doing questions i knew i could tackle faster.

i would really like to thank gmatclub for these challenges. w/o a doubt these challenges raised my score from 85-90% to 99%. the only other math prep i did was the last 1/3-1/4 questions in OG11 and OG quant workbook. i haven't tried mgmat, kaplan 800, etc.. but i would absolutely recommend these challenges if you're shooting for 49+ quant. well, well worth the \$79.
