Or maybe both?

I also only see 61 free questions on toolkits right now. Also are the MGMAT questions on toolkits the same as the ones in the book?

Hey,

GMAT club tests are must, I have been using them for quite some time now. It has brilliant analytics and you can isolate your worst and best sections. The Quant CAT are bit harder, but it will prepare you to get minimum q45. Verbal CATs are bit limited. Also, you can also take E-GMAT trail. They give decent amount of questions in trail period no strings attached.


Thanks
Akshay
Kudos if you like the reply.

Hi. The GMAT Toolkit mobile app contains about 80 MGMAT quesitons from the challenge archive. These are not the same as you would get with the MGMAT Tests/books - these are in addition. The MGMAT CAT's and books offer quite a few more questions.

Thanks,
BB

Hi wanyuenmei,

From your post, it's not clear how long you've been studying. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi wanyuenmei,

A 710 is an outstanding initial CAT Score, so you're clearly a naturally strong critical thinker. Keep in mind that Test Day is a rather specific 'event', so if you took this CAT in any ways that would be considered unrealistic (such as pausing the CAT, taking the CAT at home, etc.), then this Score might be a bit 'inflated.' With a November Test Date, you have plenty of time to study though - and you might not actually need all of that time to hit your Score Goal.

I suggest that you study as you choose for the next 2 weeks or so, then take a new FULL-LENGTH CAT - and 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 how you might adjust your studies.

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

Hi wanyuenmei,

Great practice test score! Given that you were able to score a 710 cold, with some more dedicated prep, you likely can hit your 750 goal score. That being said, to improve your score, you will want a resource that will allow you to find and fix your remaining quant and verbal weaknesses. You will need to learn all about how to answer question types with which you currently aren't very comfortable and do dozens of practice questions category by category, basically driving up your score point by point. When you do dozens of questions of the same type one after the other, you learn just what it takes to get questions of that type correct consistently. If you aren't getting close to 90 percent of questions of a certain type correct, go back and seek to better understand how that type of question works, and then do more questions of that type until you get to around at least 90 percent accuracy in your training. If you get 100 percent of some sets correct, even better.

For example, if you find that you are not strong in answering Number Properties questions, then carefully review the conceptual underpinnings of how to answer Number Properties questions and practice by answering 50 or more questions just from Number Properties: LCM, GCF, units digit patterns, divisibility, remainders, etc. When you are working on learning to answer questions of a particular type, start off taking your time, and then seek to speed up as you get more comfortable answering questions of that type. As you do such practice, do a thorough analysis of each question that you don't get right. If you got a remainder question wrong, ask yourself why. Did you make a careless mistake? Did you not properly apply the remainder formula? Was there a concept you did not understand in the question? By carefully analyzing your mistakes, you will be able to efficiently fix your weaknesses and in turn improve your GMAT quant skills. Number Properties is just one example; follow this process for all quant topics.

Each time you strengthen your understanding of a topic and your skill in answering questions of a particular type, you increase your odds of hitting your score goal. You know that there are types of questions that you are happy to see and types that you would rather not see, and types of questions that you take a long time to answer correctly. Learn to more effectively answer the types of questions that you would rather not see, and make them into your favorite types. Learn to correctly answer in two minutes or less questions that you currently take five minutes to answer. By finding, say, a dozen weaker quant areas and turning them into strong areas, you will make great progress toward hitting your quant score goal. If a dozen areas turn out not to be enough, strengthen some more areas.

You can work on verbal in a similar manner. Let’s say you are reviewing Critical Reasoning. Be sure that you practice a large number of Critical Reasoning questions: Strengthen and Weaken the Argument, Resolve the Paradox, find the Conclusion, Must be True, etc. As you go through the questions, do a thorough analysis of each question that you don't get correct. If you missed a Weaken question, ask yourself why. Did you make a careless mistake? Did you not recognize what the question was asking? Did you skip over a key detail in an answer choice? Getting GMAT verbal questions right is a matter of what you know, what you see, and what you do. So, any time that you don't get one right, you can seek to identify what you had to know to get the right answer, what you had to see that you didn't see, and what you could have done differently to arrive at the correct answer.

So, work on accuracy and generally finding correct answers, work on specific weaker areas one by one to make them strong areas, and when you take a practice GMAT or the real thing, take all the time per question available to do your absolute best to get right answers consistently. The GMAT is essentially a game of seeing how many right answers you can get in the time allotted. Approach the test with that conception in mind, and focus intently on the question in front of you with one goal in mind: getting a CORRECT answer.

Good luck!
