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

I have been using Gmat cLub tests for last 6 months . It 's one resource that helped me a lot in improving my Quants . Although Quant level is bit hight but it's very enriching . We need not to follow any book if we are done with Quants From Gmat club Test. It a sure sort gurantee of Q51 . I will advise any aspirant to start using Gmat club to enhance there quantitaive skills and please don't get disheartened if you are finding it tough. Generally the questions are way above Gmat level but a lot useful . It's a sure sort success gurantee especially in quants that i can ensure from my experience.

What I like about GMAT Club Tests was that the questionbank made it quite easy for me to focus only on the area of questions that I had trouble with. Not only that, you could participate and read past discussions on all available questions just in case you need to know where you went wrong. Generally speaking, these was all high quality questions that were quite close to the actual questions you could get on the test. Only issue for me was that the CAT tests available use the same set of questions as the question bank. So if you've done a majority of questions form the Questionbank, you couldn't attempt a CAT unless you reset the questionpool (mark all solved questions as "not attempted yet"). Other than that, I found the tool extremely useful for practicing weak areas!

Gmat Club test is built with extensive question pattern apt for GMAT examination which enhances the knowledge, enriches with faster techniques provided in solution section and brings in on precision while solving the question. The question quality is much appreciable and has covered all areas bringing in a feel of writing the real exam. Thanking team involved in the preparation of such and catering the needs of all MBA aspirants. Few sections has repeatable questions that need to be sorted out and the time line for the access of the test should be provided a bit more such that everyone can make use of the money invested in purchasing the test series.

Without GMAT club tests ,attaining the score of Q 50 would not have been possible,that too on two of my attempts.Repeating the tests for a second or third time and doing a GMAT club math test daily is more than sufficient for the score above Q 49 on the real GMAT.GMAT quant would seem much easy after practicing GMAT club tests.It is adaptive and covers all areas tested on the real GMAT.I would say it is a must have for your GMAT preparation.Its a quite essential prep material for all high GMAT score aspirants.Thank you GMAT club tests for letting me conquer my quant fear.

The course is very tailored. The tests that we have over here like the quantitative and verbal ones are very much the same like the original ones.However there is still some difference between this and that offered by GMAC in its prep software. Also the question that comes in these tests are not random unlike that of the original test. For example CR questions are followed by all CR questions& RC by RCs which is never the case in original test that is conducted by GMAC. Still this is one of the best sites having one of the best test series. he difficulty level is yet to be ascerained

great way to improve

The test here are great, it helped me to really improve my quant score which was my weak point. I come from a political science background so for me the quant part was extremely difficult.
Gmat club test allowed me to challenge myself and to review my questions. I used to study a lot for the GMAT but could not really improve because I did not take time to carefully review the questions I answered. With gmat club test, it is easy to review the questions you got wrong, to focus on particular math area and to work regularly.

Guys, never ever give up, no matter what prep you use. The most important for me was to review my questions and to work everyday, even if it is just for half an hour. Best of luck to all!

I have been taking GMAT club tests for past 1 Week. I started with these tests after I was done with my preparation from OG 2015 and few other tools.
The very first test I gave, I was taken by surprise with my Quant score, which was less than my expectation.
1. The questions are quite tricky , lets one learn new tactics to solve problems.
2. Tests do not follow the official GMAT pattern. I faced a tricky 700 level question as my first Quant question, which sort of stumped me, but that should not be overwhelming. The key with these tests is to learn more and get better
3. A wide range of questions under Quant - 26 Quant Tests
4. Fewer tests under Verbal, but they are certainly good - & verbal Tests

Overall, a great tool to learn tricks , understand high-quality questions and get a better score.

I definitely recommend GMAT club tests to everyone.

This is a review that is truly well deserved.
GMATClub never ceases to amaze me. From the details that have gone into making this website, from the ability to bookmark, see your workbook etc, this is a must-have for every GMAT test taker. The GMAT Club tests are another testament to the arsenal of weapons that GMAT Club gives GMAT takers.
It packs the most comprehensive set of questions(and the best in terms of numbers) and allow creating collections or ease of reviewing questions that were incorrectly answered. If you want to practice a specific topic, you can do that too. A must have resource for every GMAT test taker, especially for the Quant part! Thank you GMATClub!
