GMAT Club Tests review

     By korrag 40 9

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.

The Gmatclub tests, especially so the Quant questions are a very good set of Questions for anyone targeting 700+. If you can score well in these tests and understand the nuances and logic behind each question, you are sure to do well in the actual GMAT. Use these questions to enhance your score but best is to use them in mocks rather than using them as standalone questions and then review each question.
Therefore GMAT club tests are a must do for any one and everyone dreaming of a high Quant score. Use all the resources you have judiciously.
All the best for your GMAT preparations.

GMAT Club Verbal CAT
July 18 | 2018

     By vprudhvi1993 0 0

The Verbal CATs of GMAT Club are tougher than what is presented in the exam. However, it is a very good source to understand what 700-800 level questions are like. I especially liked the explanations given to understand
1. How to break up a sentence in order to understand it's meaning
2. Identify the errors

I took a third gmat test and have got a v40 because of e-GMAT & GMAT Club Practice test. I am definitely gunning for more and I highly recommend that practice tests from GMAT Club are a must in order to understand your verbal ability and these questions help you improve to a decent level.

My Quant was improved to Q49 from my 1st to 2nd test and I maintained the level in my 3rd test as well. The Quant questions are representative of the ones in GMAT.

I highly recommend GMAT club for anyone who has a decent understanding of the concepts but wants to boost their score.

GMAT club tests are really great. It helped me understand how to solve tough questions but more than that it made me understand the concepts pretty well. It just gives you confidence showing how "tough" (which are actually tricky questions can be solved easily. This is the best test material u one can find for quants. It boosts your confidence and teaches you how to deal with tricky questions very efficiently. The explanations by Bunuel are the best thing you will find on quants and they never go out of syllabus. If i have to recommend one tool for quants to anyone taking GMAT. It will be these tests and quizzes.

At the outset i must tell you that there Quant section is tough and it's way tougher then actual GMAT.... Having said that, the 3 months of GMAT CLUB TESTS and quant wont be a problem in GMAT!!
I was scoring around 45 to 47 in other test series then i migrated to Gmat club test and when i took my first test my score plunged to 39 and I was disappointment as most of us would, but later on while reviewing it i released that i never thought of solving the questions the way it has been shown and from that moment on i forgot how bad or good i'm scoring but how i'm attempting the questions mattered.. and it helped me a lot in learning new things and which in turn helped me in scoring good in the following test.... So, if Quant is the problem then sign it and start the learning process..

I started to study with they after Some friends recomended it . These are really great source of study and the questions are very well explanined plus there is the forum discussion in wich are really helpfula and make you see real improvements. The CATs are excellent, they really simulate the test condition and help you to understand your weakness, wich is the most importatn part to understand if you want a high score. The stats shows your improvement and help you to focus on your needs in order to improve fast, my score raised about 100 points after I realize what were my weakens. The hard questions are exceptionally good and help you to achieve another level that makes you even better!

Really happy with my improvement!! Excelent choice!

GMAT Club Test: Review
July 16 | 2018

These tests are unbelievable. They are the closest questions I have gotten to actual GMAT questions. In fact, they are slightly tougher, but not too tough as to make the questions unhelpful.

These questions make you work for every answer, even the 500 level problems. These questions are excellent practice for the real exam. Using the quizzes feature, I was able to improve from a Q38 to Q43 to Q47/48. Without these tests, I would not have been able to improve my quant score as much as I have.

Thank you to the entire GMAT Club team, especially Bunuel who has the best/most simple answer explanations I have ever come across.

GMAT club Quant tests are the best of the lot out there. But I must agree that these tests are a bit more harder than actual GMAT. In these tests you will get many more 700 level questions than in actual GMAT. Also 700 level questions pop up quite early in the tests. But having said that, I must also say that once you get used to the critical thinking required for solving these questions, 700 level questions in actual GMAT seems like a piece of cake. Just to give an example, I have never got more than 42-43 in GMAT club tests in quant. But in GMATPrep I always got 48-49. If not due to my silly mistakes, i would have hit 49-50 i almost all of the GMAT Preps I have given.
Coming to verbal tests, though they are not as GMAT-like as you will get in actual exam, but they are worth a practice. I used these mainly to enhance my time management skills and refine my verbal strategy.

GMAT club's quantitative quizzes and questions are far beyond my expectation. The questions are categorized in nearly all main and tested topics of Problem Solving and Data Suffiency. They are also grouped in different level of difficulty so you can choose suitable questions to practice. The questions are designed to be most similar to real GMAT questions in terms of format, range of calculations, knowledge, etc. In summary, GMAT club's quantitative questions are undoubtedly the best questions to utilize for GMAT takers who expect to receive over 49 in real tests.

About verbal questions, they are not as sizable as quant ones. They are also grouped in different level of difficulty and different topics. However, verbal questions are also reliable to practice for GMAT takers.
