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.

Hi every one, I have been preparing GMAT for long. I wrote My GMAT on 10-Jun-2016 . I have been scoring close to 700 or above and was confident that I will definitely score above 700 in real exam. Initially I took first test on GPREP and scored Q48. GMAT Club tests are the one which increased my q48 to q50. As I was running short of time and could not complete all GMAT tests but I am happy that i was able to score Q50 . Although questions in the GMAT Club tests are a little bit tougher than real GMAT but over all a very good material for practice. I would not rate these tests as 5/5 coz there is always a place for improvement. yes I would love to rate these tests as 4.5/test. My Final score in GMAT real exam is Q50 V26 (Final score 600) which is very close to prediction by GMAT CLub test. Now I am planning to write again GMAT and think that these tests are best indicator of my score
Thanks BB and team
regards
Sandeep Sharma

The gmatclub test helped me increase my quant and verbal skills. Improved my score around 150 points because of the practise I was able to do with these tests . The question bank is really great . With more and more features and amazing flexibility it is indeed one of the best choices in the market. Gmatclub test helps you not only with verbal but also quant skills . With more than 1500 question , I was able to practise regularly . It actually increased my speed as well as accuracy . The key to gmat is regular practise and indeed these mocks help you do that . I would highly recommend gmatclub test

IT helps me a lot with all the process of preparation. Not only in the quant part (the most useful) but also in the verbal with a los of practice in each section. All the support was awesome. It is sometimes really hard to dedicate a lot of time in the process and so the resources you have to apply must be adequeate and usefull and this was the case. The best verbal parts were CR and RC. So, at the end, i would definitely recommend all this stuff to any friend interested in all the gmat and mba world.

I have been a member of gmatclub since 2015. I purchased the tests to assess my quant and verbal skills and to prepare me for the actual exam. In my preparations the GMATCLUB TESTS has been my true companion, giving me right idea about my abilities to face the actual exam. I shall be taking the exam in few weeks time.
GMATCLUB TESTS analysis has been true assessor and has helped me understand the errors, drawbacks, areas of revisions and so on.
In the beginning time was the factor I could not cope up with, but now the tests have increased my efficiency and time management.
The overall experience with GMATCLUB has been fantastic and I will recommend everyone who is planning on taking the GMAT to prepare with GMATCLUB & GMATCLUB TESTS.
Thank You!
Manish.

GMAT Club is the finest set of CATs right now available in the market. The level of questions in these exams make your Quant almost flawless. Their questions are very much similar to what appears on the real test. Apart from Quant their Verbal is also amazing which makes them a definite choice for anyone who wants to score 700+. GMAT Club Tests provides students with the skills and strategies essential for success. There are higher standards for what defines a competitive GMAT score today. We have no magic formula, no silver bullet, no empty guarantees. Instead, we have three basic principles that separate us from other test prep: the best teachers, the most advanced learning approach, and a focus solely placed on the GMAT.

I was so weak at the quantitative skill. I had made around 30-36 on the quantitative part before I found GMAT Club Test. I use CAT test, which has tons of question, to practice my quantitative skill and know my weakness, so I can focus to improve the specific part that I cannot do well. That helps me save a lot of time. Moreover, CAT test has a good explanation that helps you understand the solution more clearly.Additionally, I use CAT test to practice verbal part.That made me get an idea how to do good on verbal.I think I could not do good on GMAT without practicing on CAT test.

Not a supplement, But a Main

When I started preparing for GMAT, some friends advised me to buy Manhattan Prep CATs and use GMAT Club to supplement my learnings from the former. However, having the membership of both the CATs and the forums, i found GMAT Club to be a more flexible and effective in terms that it was more conducive to my learning style. The dynamic learning experience through the forums is undoubtedly enriching. The structured analysis of the CATs was very useful and allowed me to identify my weaknesses and hence improve scores within the stipulated time. I have suggested my friends who have taken the exam after me to use this platform as their main material for preparation.

Continuously sets you up best for the genuine gmat. This test has gathering of some great questions.However the tests doesn't have any genuine gmat compose algorithm.But the nature of inquiries are great and are well for the genuine test perspective.Always sets you up best for the real gmat. This test has aggregation of some great questions. - To be honest, I relied heavily on this course, probably this was my mistake - especially when tackling SC questions. Overwhelmed with so many explanations in GMATClub Forum for SC (and sometimes contrast one another), I intensified my SC practice solely on Magoosh.

The CAT exams that GMATClub offers are a total must
If you are aiming for >75% in Quant, I highly recommend purchasing these tests.
They are tougher than the official ones, but allow you to get up to speed, make sure you are on top of everything and specially they show you to pay extra attention to rack up additional points
I've been using them once I finished reviewing all the material and they have clearly been a score booster. Plus all the questions come with detailed explanations and links to similar type questions.
I highly recommend purchasing these CATs - they are a truly score booster
