Hello All,
Let me first thank everyone on this forum. It is an amazing platform with just the right content.
I have my GMAT test scheduled on 23rd December, and have attepmted the two free tests by GMATPrep.
I need to appear for few more tests, and have difficulty choosing between the additional tests by GMATPrep and the test series by GMATClub.

Could experts please help me with making a choice here? If GMATClub, then should I buy the 3 months or 6 months access?
Thank you in advace!

Hi Manishcfc8,

I would suggest you that you purchase at least one of the GMAT Prep test packs (either 1 or 2) and complete it before taking your actual exam.

Since these are the official questions you can expect similar kind of questions in the actual GMAT exam.

Also the score that you would be obtaining would be similar to the Actual GMAT.

GMAT Club Test on the other hand is on a slightly difficult level especially the quant section. These Test would help you in tackling the higher level problems much more effectively.

I hope the above information was helpful

Here is an overview of all tests available: https://gmatclub.com/forum/all-gmat-pra ... 28289.html

In short, GMAT Prep is usually the gold standard due to verbal questions (Free, EP1, EP2, and QP1)
MGMAT/Veritas Prep/Kaplan are the solid choice after GMAT Prep
GMAT Club is the best in quant due to questions being truly tricky and devious as opposed to jarring and compiled
All others are only if you ran out of the above.

Based on my personal experience, I would highly recommend the GMATPrep tests. I had opted for EP1 and EP2 and the level of questions was to a large extent at par with the actual test. You will not get explanations for the solutions of the questions in EP1 and EP2, but you can search for them on gmatclub.
I have used GMATclub tests too for quant they are pretty good too. So if you are looking to improve in quant specifically then you can opt for it. There are a number of tricky questions and you will get to understand the types of traps to be aware of when solving questions, especially in DS.

Hi Manishcfc8,

However you choose to proceed with your studies, it's important to remember that taking lots of CATs will NOT make you a better Test Taker. A CAT is really a 'measuring device' - when used correctly, it will give you a realistic score and help define your strengths and weaknesses, but it will NOT help you to fix any of those weaknesses. To raise your scores, you have to put in the necessary practice and repetitions. The CAT will show you whether your studies are helping you to improve or not.

You haven't provided much information on your studies so far, so before I can offer you any additional advice, 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) What is your exact Official Test Date?
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
