This post was
BOOKMARKED
Folks, there are several posts and questions floating around asking which practice tests are good, however the responses given are quite varied. Also there are few members who have exhausted all their tests from one prep company such as MGMAT and are looking for additional alternatives. I was interested in opening an opinion poll to our test takers who have actually experienced these practice tests and are willing to share their experiences & ratings. I believe this poll may help our new members who are trying to figure out the available options.

Factors to consider before you vote:
- Scoring algorithm (how close it resembles to your actual GMAT or GMATPREP tests score)
- Quality of questions (how well crafted are the questions & answer choices)
- Difficulty level of questions
- In-Depth performance analysis with statistics

If you want to estimate your GMAT Score by converting Practice test scores, then please use 'GMAT Score Calculator' below:

Thank you for starting this poll! I think it is a great initiative. I was just about to revise the thread you have linked to about all the tests (some of those links should really be removed for a number of reasons).

Also keep in mind the GMAT Score Calculator

Thanks BB! I agree, 'All GMAT Tests' link can be revised, as few prep companies such as 800Score have recently released new improved versions of their practice tests and it seems Kaplan & MGMAT too did few tweaks around their scoring algorithm.

I have now included the GMAT Score Calculator in the original voting post.

Knewton tests are pretty close to actual GMAT. Quant is a bit easy but verbal is right up there.
MGMAT is demoralizing, especially with IR and their new scoing scale. However MGMAT will help you overprepare and hence good practise. Just donot get demoralized.

I would like to know if "overprepare" for the exame is after all a good thing. I would not want to spend energy for something that after give you not an = ROI.

I mean: do what you need.....not more

I think over-preparing will only help improve your chances to achieve your goal. If GMAT is your primary goal for next couple of months then give it a best shot! Just make sure not to burn out yourself.

You cannot overprepare for GMAT, unless your diagnostic score is between 720 and 760.
Tutors spend years still they keep learning new things. The key is NOT to burn out or to make studying a chore.

No. I like to learn day by day, and give me the crazy: but I love this test it was only a question. That's it

I think the quant section of the Manhattan GMAT CAT doesn't resemble the real test that much. The questions are too lengthy and overall the amount of 700-800 level questions is too high. I have had MGMAT tests in which I got >35 700-800 level quant questions and my score was only a 48 because I ran out of time towards the end. The GMAT Club quant tests are way better than MGMATs imo.

yes MGMAT Quant does push us to limits, few of their 700 level quant problem are algebraic or calculation extensive. But it does help to you improve accuracy and plan/execution speed. I guess, if you can crack MGMAT quant then you can do well (or even better) in GMAT. Only difference I observed during my actual GMAT exam was they had too many DS questions with "word" problem types which takes little longer to read and interpret their convoluted text.

wow.. I learnt a lot in this post..

I got a 44 in MGMAT Quant on Nov15th and my analysis showed that I missed many many questions because of silly mistakes..

Now I know from the above posts that not only is the MGMAT Quant tough , but also is their new scoring algorithm demoralizing.

I gotto take the GMAT Prep now to know where I actually stand..

MGMAT Verbal is also strange. I found all the RCs to be lengthy whereas I have heard that only 1 RC would be lengthy on the GMAT.

I just checked again. There is no expiration date on this vote. May be you have voted once already. I have enabled the option to re-cast/change vote.

I can't believe that you did not include GMAT Hacks 1800 practice set. IMO, they are the most accurate representation of real GMAT-like Quant questions.

Do you guys find that your score on MGMAT practice tests were lower than what you got on the actual test? I am scoring 50 points lower on MGMAT than I am on GMATPrep... not sure what to think

MGMAT Quant will be slightly tougher and lengthier in calculations/math than actual GMAT. Dont expect too much delta, but if you do well in MGMAT quant then you will do better in actual GMAT.

Also MGMAT has recently re-calibrated their scoring resulting in approx 18 points lower score than earlier.

See below:
-------------------
CAT Recalibration – August 29, 2012
We have recalibrated our CAT scoring. CATs taken AFTER 11:00 AM EDT on August 29, 2012 are scored according to the new calibration. Older CAT scores are unaffected.
Why are scores being recalibrated?
We periodically recalibrate to have our CAT scores correspond to actual GMAT scores as closely as possible. In addition, the percentiles in our system now match the latest percentiles published by GMAC (earlier this month). These percentiles, especially on the quant side, are undergoing significant shifts.

What is the effect of the recalibration?
New MGMAT Quant subscores, on average, are lower by approximately 1 point.
New MGMAT Verbal subscores, on average, are lower by approximately 1-2 points.
New MGMAT Overall scores, on average, are lower by approximately 18 points.*

What does this mean for me?
When you compare older practice scores to practice scores generated after noon on August 29th, you should subtract 1-2 points from each old subscore and about 15-20 points from the old overall score, to get a rough sense of how you would have done under the new scoring.
We know that this is a significant recalibration, one that impacts your sense of your progress. We’re committed to making our CATs ever better over time.

*Note: An earlier measurement of the effect of the recalibration overestimated the average impact on subscores by 1-2 points and on overall scores by ~9 points.
