GMATCLUB.com claims that these are the hardest quant tests in the market, but I respectfully disagree. Manhattan Mocks have difficult quant portion than these tests.

Pros -
1. Large question pool.

2. Questions relevant to the GMAT - one won't find questions which are not relevant to the GMAT. GMATClub must have given great efforts to sort the questions out, more so for the fact that they have a huge number of difficult quant level questions. Almost every difficult and super difficult level question has a solution that would take 2 or at max 3 minutes. This is important since as a GMAT taker one needs to practice GMAT like content.

3. Of all the mocks I have given, except for the official mocks, gmatclub mocks have the closest user interface to the actual gmatprep and the actual GMAT exam.

Cons -
1. Filled with bugs, pausing the test at times just finishes the test thereby awarding a score of 6.

2. GMATclub moderator team - they would block your account for no reason (I was given kudos inflation as the reason). They won't even reply to your queries. I already had the mocks subscribed through e-gmat verbal online and there was no reason for me to indulge in their so called 'kudos inflation'. Now, this was done 2 weeks before my actual GMAT exam and they could give you unnecessary trouble at any moment.

3. Algorithm - It is far from the GMATPrep and hence actual GMAT. It would randomly award you a Q51 or a Q50 with a large number of incorrect questions I once got a Q51 with 10 incorrect answers. Be aware that it doesn't happen in the actual gmatprep - I had given 7 gmatprep mocks (I gave gmatprep 1 twice) and I analyzed those mocks thoroughly. There is a huge, and when I say huge I really mean huge gap between the algorithms of gmatprep and gmatclub. I got Q49 in EP2-2 with 4 incorrect answers (Q no. 17, 25, 36 and 37 incorrect) and a Q51 on EP1-2 with only 2 incorrect (somewhere around 20 and 35). Gmatclub.com algorithm would have awarded a Q51 in both the cases.

4. Verbal - Stick to official content for verbal and if you really want extra practice, one's next and final stop should be the content developed by Manhattan. Don't waste your time on verbal questions from any other content provider and this applies to Gmatclub as well. Lines of reasoning on verbal portion, especially CR and RC, from gmatprep and any other provider is quite different. One may use the gmatclub.com verbal mocks for essentially working on timing issues. However, one should not fret too much on the incorrect questions, particularly if one involves tuning a strategy or approach, since GMAC doesn't think the way others think. The importance of sticking to official content cannot be overstated.

The popular belief is that the GMATCLUB Tests are the toughest, but does it mean that the toughest tests make the test takers better at the Test taking, does it make the test takers to work harder to improve, does it also mean that the actual test score will improve?. Well i am not an expert but in my opinion the answer to all the questions above is YES!.
GMAT is not only a test of quant and verbal skills but also a test of endurance, logic and analytical mindset and to develop these three skills an applicant must practice harder question in order to maintain a consistent test taking strategy.Working on harder questions than the actual test also helps to develop the sense of Timing, and the sense of strategy required to ace the test and GMATCLUB tests helps to do just that.

I used my Gmatclub points to subscribe for the test for 1 month for about 3 times now and I have seem my quant score to improve to the level where I am confident that quant is no more a stress area for my prep. The tests may present tough questions that sometimes gives a feel as of they are impossible to solve in the given time but such questions make the test taker to practice harder and gives a reason to improve.

I highly recommend the test to all the test takers who are aiming at a high quant score.

I am bad at explaining so forgive me if I bore you by below passage but trust me its going to help you if you follow.
I was already suggested by my fellow mates in the tuition and even professors to use this place for Quant and trust me they all were true, this site contain each and every types of question which you are going to get in Gmat test, if you're target is 51 in Quant use this site and give mocks on GMAT Club on frequent interval believe me you will see great improvements in your score. The best thing I liked about Gmat Club test is you can see same question on forum(they are linked) and you can ask your doubts on it there if you are not satisfied with explanation provided.

Hello Guys - I went over the gmat club tests and highly recommend the gmat takers to take advantage of the gmat quant tests. These quant tests are just incredible. The solutions provided by Bunuel and BB make me believe that even the toughest questions can be solved within 2 minutes if you apply the strategies in the right manner. Also, while solving these questions i realized that the 700+ questions need more tact than just maths. The more you solve these tact questions, the more you fall in love with quant. I don't think any other test prep company matches gmat club quant tests.

Redeemed my 200 GC points for GMAT Club Tests. Probably the best use of my points. The tests help individual to think out of the box and revise all the important concepts especially combinatorics. The difficulty level for the quants is on a higher side compared with the actual GMAT. But the tests help you in gaining confidence for 600-700 Level questions and also helps individual to improve speed and accuracy. Completing all the 26 quant CAT is sufficient if one wants a high quant in actual GMAT. Also, the explanations are clear and one can take the incorrect questions as a quiz to memorize the important concepts.

GMAT club tests are one of the best resources for Quant prep. The tests will help to build a strong foundation in basic concepts as well as contain a strong pool of challenging questions. The explanations are solid and unambiguous. After a few attempts at the test when I could not complete on time, I figured that timing was one area I had to improve on. Gmatclub tests are perfect for building your proficiency on hard questions, working on your time management as they provide a balanced mix of challenging questions to help you aim for a higher score.
I would highly recommend the quant tests for anyone aiming for Q49+ score.

Hello Visitor,

Good Morning /Evening ( depending upon the time you are reading this piece :-) .

There are zillions of good things to say about our GMAT Club Quant Tests. I am completely in agreement with the opinion that these tests are a tad tougher compared to GMAT Q. But, this statement is true when the target score <47 . The more higher you target from 47 at GMAT -Q, the more contextual these tests would be for you. I would say ,
Target 47-49 : Complete concept coupled with & fair bit of practice with these tests.
Target 50 : Complete concept , Fair bit of practice with these tests , being at the ball park of >80% at the 700 level (within 2.5 mins) AND ABSOLUTELY 0 ( yes, ZERO) SILLY MISTAKE.
Target 51: This is tough....at least to my standard. But, I believe , this requires everything for target 50 PLUS tuning yourself to perform at the level of > 90% (in 2.5 mins) and 95% accuracy ( in 3 mins) for 700-lvl problems .

Unlike may other Prep companies tests, where the test is made complicated by non gmat like variables such as unnecessarily wordy that takes to much time or tremendous lengthy calculations , GMAT Club tests evaluates you intellectual power i.e., concepts & their applications.

The beauty of the GMAT CLUB tests is that it has a huge collection of GMAT compatible quant Qs at every level , enabling one to get good enough practice for his/her intended level. Moreover , Unlike may other Prep companies tests, where the test is made complicated by non gmat like variables such as unnecessarily wordy that takes to much time or tremendous lengthy calculations , GMAT Club tests evaluates you intellectual power i.e., concepts & their applications.

I have a strong opinion that the tremendous varied collection of approaches & type of problems in GMAT CLUB Tests tunes and pushes one to think beyond the GMAT-Quant mediocrity.

I am very sure that this can provide am amazing head start to someone who is serious about his/her High-Q Score.

All the best !!

GMAT Quant tests are, without a doubt, the best tests available today.

The quality of questions is high, and almost each of the questions is very reflective of the actual GMAT.
I can guarantee that if anyone practices these question sets for over a few weeks to a month, he or she will see drastic improvements in score. The strength of the question back lies in the fact that these questions are very similar to actual GMAT, giving test takers a real feel of the actual test.
And, the answer explanations provided by Bunuel and Bb are very simple to understand.

All in all, the best GMAT Tests available today, as far as the Quant section is concerned. I highly recommend these tests to every test taker who aims for a Q49-51.

Best for Quant

Gmat Club tests are a boon to those who are stuck at Q47 and want to go to that Q50-51. The questions are very well drafted and all the tricks that actual GMAT throws in questions can be found here as well.

I may have some reservations for Verbal though. I gave few tests and I think the algorithm needs to be tweaked upon in Verbal section. But if you are not looking for score but for practice purpose , it is good .

I would highly recommend these tests to everyone who wants to prepare aptly for Quant.

Kudos to the team !!!

Best Quant Tests to date !

I have been studying GMAT materials for a year. I took the first three actual GMAT exams on Aug 2017, Dec 2017, and Mar 2018, respectively. I had taken my fourth GMAT on Aug 2018 - the actual score is 720 (Q49 V40 IR5) - before I encountered GMATClub Quant Test the following month.

The review I write here is purely based on both my experience in taking four (yes, four!) real GMAT exams and my drill with some of the 600-level and 700-level questions available in GMATClub Quant Tests.

I confidently say that the tone of most questions in GMAT Club Quant Tests is, undoubtedly, very similar to that of any question I encountered in the actual GMAT. The questions in the GMATClub Tests are apparently as hard as, if not harder than, the "hard" questions from all past GMAT exams that I did.

I learned from experience that every actual GMAT will throw several uncommon and hard quant questions (from approximately second half of the session) that can only be solved under 2.5 mins if I apply "logical" quantitative reasoning. Unfortunately, as shown in the ESR of my fourth GMAT exam, I often failed to "creatively" solve those hard questions under 2:30 mins. Admittedly, I need to train myself with mock tests that have a bunch of realistic hard quant questions.

Practicing the medium (600 level) to hard (700 level) questions in GMATClub tests has really helped me to improve my mental strength and endurance and to sharpen my "logical" quantitative reasoning. This training is a must-do for me (and probably for everyone) to achieve a target score of Q50-51.

I hope that I can achieve a Q51 and a total score of >770 for my fifth GMAT exam. I hope you all the best for your incoming test and don't forget to wish me luck! #Fingercrossed.
