GMAT Club Tests review

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.

Very Close to 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

I have used GMAT club forum and am experiencing the change in my approach to get the best score possible for me. It is the best practice platform I have come across so far. The questions are thought provoking. Even though the algorithm doesn't seems to match closely with GMAT prep, The higher difficulty question that we encounter in the GMAT Club Test helps us to stay top of our game. Any one who is interested to score higher in QUANTITATIVE (Q50/Q51) must practice using Gmat Club Tests.

From an affordability standpoint too, the tests are great value for money. The question database is huge for quant and is enough for 25 CAT exams. I am going to attempt GMAT for a second time. And feel that if I would have started practicing using this platform I would have scored well in the second attempt itself.

I have taken one Quants and six verbal tests and I feel the quality of the questions are very good in both the sections. Overall, I think the tests are a great way to practice and prepare for GMAT!

Quant tests are really useful. They're a notch higher in difficulty level compared to actual GMAT quant, but a great way to improve speed and accuracy. Re-doing the wrong ones can really help to fortify the concepts.
Verbal is a bit off from actual GMAT verbal. But taking verbal tests can help to build stamina .
The best part is that you can customize the test to your own needs in terms of question type, number, and time. The analysis after the tests really helped me to identify my weak spots and work on it. Taking these tests (especially the quant ones) is enough to prepare you for the actual gmat test. I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to improve his or her quant since the solutions provided are also really good.

I started using the gmat club tests and was very satisfied as the tests have such a high standard and provide excellent analytics. Whilst the timing per question is a little demanding, the answer explanations are excellent to ensure that you understand the core concepts of gmat quant.

When using the tool, its important not so much to pay attention to the amount of correct answers, but more to the value that can be obtained from each question. Each question comes with really important explanations which will undoubtedly prepare you for that 700 level. If you are planning on taking the gmat, make sure this is part of your arsenal.

For those aiming Q49+
June 17 | 2018
reviewer identity verified by score report
     By DinkarDK 36 6

GMAT Club tests, which come in with 26 Quant and 8 verbal package, are extremely helpful for those students looking to score Q49+. These tests have been upgraded to new Q31 and V36 questions with new time limits. Though Verbal tests are fewer in number, these can be strategically used to get used to complete verbal + quant session experience.
The score analytics and solutions given are crisp and precise. The key to enhance Quant score is to focus on the details of questions and not to rush through reading hurriedly. Most of the DS questions reveal the answers if enough time is spent in analyzing the same.
All-in-all these 26 Quant tests sets a right tempo for the test and practicing them in timed mode makes real GMAT just another piece of cake around the corner. ;)

I heard about this course from a friend of mine. I was inclined t take offline GMAT courses and was sort of doubted about taking courses online. However, without doubt, the course provided all I needed to combat the quant section of GMAT. The course comes up with clean solution and problem sets and a greatest kick is the online selections that can be repeated anytime under any circumstances. Even though I was bombed in math during my college years, the course helped me overcome that fear and eventually, my math score improved over 200 points. If you find yourself fallen behind in math, then I definitely recommend this course. this course is basically what and all you need to combat the quantitative section of GMAT.

I have used gmatclub's tests extensively and it is the best practice platform I have come across so far. The questions are thought provoking, the algorithm seems a close match with GMAT prep and most importantly the solution to the 700+ questions are amazing.

From an affordability standpoint too, the tests are great value for money. The question database is huge for quant and is enough for 25 CAT exams. I am going to attempt GMAT for a second time and I still had around 10 quant CATs available for quant after practicing hard for my first attempt. This is important because fresh questions always test the real improvement than old questions.

I have taken two verbal tests and I feel the quality of the questions is good in the verbal section too. Overall, I think the tests are a great way to practice and prepare for GMAT!

There are quite a few GMAT resources in the online platforms which are very close to GMAT, GMAT club test are one of these.

There are other test series which are often tougher than GMAT, but the problem with those test series is that you are not able to gauge enough confidence about the score you are going to get in real GMAT, you can just hope about a better performance in GMAT given that the test series was tougher than GMAT.

The beautiful thing about GMAT club tests is the analysis which they put together for your test performance, and if this analysis is put to use to for strategic sectional preparation, then it can really help you boost your performance.

Generally as a rule of thumb, the score in your last 3-4 tests can act as a benchmark performance and you an expect more or less the same in real GMAT.

I started my GMAT preparation in Sep 2016. As I was away from study for 6 years, I lost touch with maths and grammar. Like most GMAT test takers, I started my preparation with GMAT Club forum questions. Slowly, I gained the momentum. After three weeks of practice, I decided to 'test' my preparation. As I said earlier, after six years of gap I did not feel like taking the full-length tests to start. So I decided to take the sectional tests first and then attempt the full-length tests. I purchased the GMAT tests. The best part of GMAT Tests is that they give you ample amount of practice on both the sections. I started taking the Quant Test after every two days and verbal test after every three days. I realized that GMAT Club tests not only give the exam practice, but also help prepare the concept if one reviews one's mistake properly. After each test, I reviewed my mistakes. After giving 10 Quant and 6 Verbal Tests, I felt confident to take Official GMAT Prep Tests. Soon, I started getting my target score on Official GMAT Prep Tests, and I booked the GMAT Exam. On GMAT Day, 21st Nov 2017, I scored 50 in Quant.

I give credit to GMAT Club tests for giving me sufficient practice.

Thanks Team GMAT Club!!
