The Gmat Club tests are a must have if you are aiming for a 700+ score. I had taken my last GmatClub CAT before November 2015, hence this review doesn't cover whatever improvements have been done after that time.

The quant part of the CAT have the best questions that you will find anywhere. And it's not just the questions themselves, the explanations provided also help you uncover many shortcuts and help strengthen your core concepts. Admittedly, I found them to be a little harder than the GMAT quant questions, but that should help you be better prepared for the final test. And also, you can take the quant section or verbal section one at a time, which gives great flexibility when you are hard pressed for time.

Now the not so good thing about the tests... Although the questions themselves were top notch, the scoring algorithm seemed to be a little off. My quant scores in the CATs were a little spread out (45-50) and the hard questions keep coming at you from around the first 5 questions, which wouldn't usually happen in the real exam. So you might find yourself running out of time, but again, this should be good for practice.

And the really bad part about the tests? The verbal section! To me it was utter waste of time. I completed 3 verbal CATs and scored V30/31 in all of them (I'm really not that bad). Quite a few of the answers seemed debatable and few questions were not very GMAT like.

With all these pros and cons, I used my GmatClub tests subscription for 6 months and then I had renewed it for another 6 months. Simply because practicing the quant section really helped boost my confidence. The first time I got a Q50 in the GmatClub tests I felt like NOW i'm ready for the actual GMAT. I had used the GmatClub tests along with MGMAT/Veritas tests to practice the CATs, and I will suggest the same strategy to others appearing for the GMAT.

Thanks for the review! What has seemed to work the best for your Verbal Prep?

My last attempt I got 690 (44Q / 40V) (after a 670 and my first attempt which I'll just say was a mulligan...) and I'm hoping to ideally gain a couple points in each section.

Don't get me wrong I was happy for the most part, but...I stupidly lost 1.5+ minutes on the quant section after a slow sign-in & brain-fry / skewed sense of time, all of which definitely could have prevented me from reaching 700-territory. 690 is good, but it's so dang competitive these days & I wasn't accepted at my two schools of choice (NYU & Columbia) - of course the most important result...

I've had some of the same feelings about GMAT-Club & other online verbal sources; I've been especially disheartened when I notice several legitimate gripes about a fair amount of Verbal answer rationales and even straight-up typos, comma issues etc.

I think I'll sign up for another run on the GMAT Club tests / quizzes primarily for the great Quant, although I still don't have a good Verbal source (aside from the few remaining 'New' 2016 OG / Review questions & a handful of Magoosh questions). To qualify my 'gripes' above, I have found that Magoosh and of course OG answers & explanations have made sense, or I made a dumb mistake etc.

Anyway thanks again for your review, and if you (or anyone reading this) has any recommendations for the best verbal questions / answers & explanations, please let me know!

Thanks:-D

Hey guys so I have recently taken up the gmat exam and I have tried the practice test series of Manhattan , Veritas and Kaplan along with the mba.com two free practice test and my rankings would be as follows:

1. GMAT Prep Official Software : This mimics the actual gmat test as close as possible and would give you the best possible estimate where you might land on the actual gmat. The questions are relevant and the scoring too.

2. Manhattan Test series : They have a very good question bank and prepares you really well for the actual exam. The scoring system is also pretty much accurate.

3. Veritas Test series : This is equivalent to Manhattan. I have just put it after manhattan because the questions may be a just little less competent than the manhattan. I say this because after you have given a couple of tests one or two question in the subsequent tests may be repeated or are very much similar that you know the answers without solving them. The scoring is also pretty much accurate. The advantage of Veritas over manhattan is that the analysis after the test that it provides-pretty detailed and helpful.

4. Kaplan Test : The questions of this test are equally good compared to manhattan. However, the scoring system seems to be inflated. So if you are giving the test in order to boost your morale then this might be a good pick :-p . The test taking experience and questions are on par with the other test series.

I hope the post helps!

Happy preparations and best of luck for GMAT.

Gmat club tests are most reliable tests. In my experience while preparing for my Gmat1 i have been using these tests where i used to score Quant 42 and verbal 25-27 and i scored the same in my real Gmat exam(Q-44 and Verbal:-25).Quant tests are very useful to learn/approach advanced questions and to refine one's skills and pacing. They also provide difficulty level of questions where you went wrong in Results. It will be really helpful if we were provided full length mock exams in addition to Quant & verbal tests!. Would like to very much recommend the gmatclub tests for one's preparation towards the GMAT.

Folks, I have found the GMAT Quant question bank to be very useful in my preparation for my GMAT. Though, I did not maximize my use of those questions at my own peril. I have found that every time I solve a chunk of questions from the question bank I have a better understanding of what my weaknesses are. This test will expose you! If you want to do well on the GMAT. This is the one. Do it every day until your exam; this is what I intend to do on my next try on the GMAT exam. There is no other way around the Quant without the question bank from the GMAT Club.

Hi Gmat club,

I would like to thank every one for providing excellent GMAT quant resource. This resource gave me an immense confidence in me to tackle problems of different type . But during practicing i encountered problems with typos where you people need to correct those problems.. Till now i did not joined any discussion forum as I was little bit busy with my work schedule and I get little time to study . Once I am free after completing full 27 test I will be actively participating in discussion forum.A very special thanks to bunnel for providing Awesome explanation on hard quant . Coming to verbal part, i am disappointed with the questions and explanation provided , I could not able to judge the question level(Hard, Easy)and concept behind them . From my view point , verbal questions need to re-phrase so that subscribers can boost their confidence after taking test .Once again thanks for proving this opportunity of writing review. I Hope my review will make enhancement in improving Quality of the GMAT club questions ...Thanks Every one!!

Thanks & Regard's
T Rakesh

Nothing better than Gmatclub

     By irishiraj87 15 2

The stories have inspired me time and again. I have read multiple de-briefs and formed my winning strategy. The result...I am more than confident to take my exam unlike earlier. The experts and the blogs are extremely helpful for any given topic that one might think of with regards to GMAT. would recommend this forum to anyone who is looking to improve his/her score in Verbal and especially the non-natives A year back ,i started thinking seriously about the GMAT. The greatest struggle for me was verbal section. While i was doing self study ,i got correct answers by intuition which made me even more dubious about my good score in GMAT. I started searching for good stuff and fortunately bumped into a review on gmat club.The gmat verbal provided me with a great base to start with. My concepts expecially in SC significantly improved. The algorithms used in questions selection is great and just what the student required. This gave me the flexibility of choosing the right kind and number of questions as per requirement.
I owe a lot to you!

Quant questions

     By Sarang25 0 0

I was using a lot of materials for Quant preparation.My first attempt Quant score was Q20. Then i went through the GMAT Club forum and then attempted free tests.It gave me a different picture about Quant preparation method.I gave few mock tests and could see an improvement in the Quant score from Q20 to Q38. After attempting GMAT Club Quant mock tests,now i feel more confident to face any quant problems ,especially DS problems. GMAT clubs test series is more similar to actual exam questions and it will give you a clarity.Other materials have a lot of complex problems which are not really required from exam stand and will take more than 2 minutes to solve them.

I have been using gmat club tests since past 2 months, and I must stress there are no tests out in the market that come close to gmat club tests in terms of quality of material, especially for quant. I personally feel that gmat club quant tests are better than Manhattan Cat tests quant. For verbal I would say gmat club team still needs to improve the content to come at par with other prep companies. For someone aiming for a Q 50 gmat club tests are a must and more than enough. The kind of flexibility gmat club tests provide in terms of taking tests or quizzes and the large collection of questions help one achieve more fruitful outcome.

Gmat Club Quant Tests
December 11 | 2017
reviewer identity verified by gmat club tests
     By Rumanshu1990 4 5

While I still have more than half of the GMAT Club Quant tests to appear, I have been practicing the questions from the test and I must admit that the questions are very good. The questions vary widely when it comes to approach to solve them. Most of the questions that I practiced test the basic concept of the topic, which at times we might overlook in haste of practicing the 'harder' questions. The question pattern is very similar to GMAT. The other added advantage of the GC Tests is the thorough discussions that take place after the questions are posted on the forum.
A must practice resource for those who are looking forward to improve their Quant Scores !!

Hi,

I have subscribed GMATCLUB Tests by paying $80 based in feedback of one of my friends. I found Quant test externally helpful for Quant. The beauty of this test is the way in which the explanations are written similar to explanations written by someone attempting quant test and getting Q51. The though process is clearly described in lucid manner. If you wants to score more than Q48 then there is no 2nd thought required. Just brushup your basics from Manhattan or any other book and start attempting 26 quant sectional test. Focus on your weakness based on analytics provided and do some practice questions of weak topic and kill it.

Verbal tests (9 tests) require a lot of improvement especially in the area of number of sectional test, quality of GMAT questions like official questions etc. as verbal tests are not close to actual questions in exam.

Buy this test for quant without fail and do verbal from official tests/OG/GMATprep.

Highly recommended for QUANT.
