Hi guys
I’ve started GMAT preparation a week ago and planning to take it in 10 weeks. I was wondering how many prep test should I take and in what order?
I really want to track my progress and get a realistic view of my abilities before the actual test. It would be better to take each every week?

Hi Farzaneh,

In a prior post, you stated that you took a practice CAT, but that you 'paused' the Exam repeatedly and skipped the Essay and IR sections. Unfortunately, that's NOT a realistic way to assess your skills, so it would be a good idea to take a new FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test. You can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi

Most Accurate Tests are Official Test EP1 and EP2 to get realistic view of your abilities before the actual test. After GMAC tests Manhattan test are good enough.

Hi,

10 weeks is good enough to achieve your dream scores if you study dedicatedly for that period. Although it's important to take mocks, It is also important to know what you learn from each one of them. If you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

The best Mocks to practice from is GMATPREP EP1 and EP2. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Hope this helps. All the best.

There is no boundation. You can write as many test as required . it totally depends on the time you have .
I would suggest, you first you write one diagnostic test and see where you land .
Based on your week areas , you should work on
