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.

GMATClub is a great source for questions that are at par with the actual test. The discussions on the forum are very useful. When you go through the entire discussion, you get to know the other perspectives and methodologies for each question type. Not just that, search any question or concept and you will find it on this forum. GMATClub Quant CATs are also very helpful. It's one of the best ways to practice. These tests provide good analysis of the performance. The flexibility to build your own quiz (topic-wise) allows to practice only the weak topics. Overall a very good forum.

10 more days to go

I am taking GMAT preparation from last Six months. Initially I was using OG and GMAT club free materials, but was confused about which course to proceed, then one of my colleague suggested e-GMAT, and I cannot thank him enough for having done that. I was amazed about the depth of the concept discussed in the course. Along with that gmat club blog and tests really helped me to inspire and practice.

Videos of eGmat course are amazing. It seems like taking class with required detail explanations. I have invested my time in the morning for new topics and in the evening for review. Scholaranium. is excellent resource for practice in eGmat. It helped me to build my confidence.
I have scheduled my test in 10 days. I am planning to invest my time in scholaranium and gmat club test. Hope for the best. With come up with detail after the test.

The Gmat Club Test package was a tremendous help to my study process. The questions were great, and some of the most difficult questions I've encountered. On top of the great questions, you get an awesome simulator. This was my favorite part of the package. The simulator feels exactly the same as the one used on the real GMAT, and it's fantastic for reviewing questions when you're done. It links to the forum page for each particular question so you can see a variety of techniques used by others to solve the question. It's an awesome feature and an overall great product.

Fantastic GMAT Test Banks
November 20 | 2017

     By TJoseph1 0 0

I took the self-study GMAT approach, and a friend recommended GMAT Club's test banks for the customizable question difficulty functionality. I found it immensely helpful to be able to efficiently spend my few days of last-minute studying by completely focusing on 700-level questions. Notably in the areas where my abilities were lacking, in data sufficiency and sentence correction, the question banks had hundreds of problems that helped me iron out the kinks in my knowledge and strategy, and actually improve my sentence correction to the point that I was 92nd percentile in Verbal. For those considering how to craft your study strategy, GMAT Club is an essential component, and gives the level of detailed explanation you'll need to raise your score.

Great resource for quant!

The GMAT club tests have greatly helped me improve my quant skills. The analytics tool allowed to readily identify and focus on areas where I needed improvement. In addition, the explanations that come with most quant answers are really useful and another source of insights. Also, the timing tools helped me improved my pacing tremendously. I also found other users' explanations to be quite helpful in coming up with multiple ways to tackle each problem. The community spirit and level of encouragement from others made me feel I was not in this alone. I'd highly recommend GMAT CLUB tests for anyone interested in improving his/her quant skills. Go strong!

Surely for those who want to drill themselves with those tough-to-crack quantitative questions. Best part is the in-depth solutions provided for each question. And if one is still not satisfied with the provided solution, elaborated further discussion can be done on forum until clarification of doubts.
There are CATS also, to mimic real time test scenarios but mostly with medium to difficult questions. GMAT club tests for quantitative section are more than enough to fine tune skills required to bell 49+ in real GMAT exam, provided one practice enough questions under timed conditions.
Overall, thanks to the GMAT club team for this great venture. Good luck.

GMAT CLUB

Gmat club tests have questions which are on an average above the GMAT level. Even after completing all the study material I could find them very challenging. More than the question the forum discussions are truly an eye-opener. Bunuel and his short key and direct solutions just unravel a seemingly tough question in just a few steps. His way of explanation is very elegant and easy to understand. GMAT Club Tests are the ultimate tool to obtain a better score in GMAT Quant section. No other test series or question set can even come close to it. One needs to just finish the basics and then start solving GMAT club questions daily and trust me improvement will come. There is a huge selection of question ranging from 500 to 750+ level questions. There is no dearth of questions on any topic. The questions are well researched and test the basics of the candidate. It has helped to get a 2 point jump over 4-5 months. But I am preparing for the same again and will further use GMAT club tests to prepare. It is not only important to keep on solving the questions but also to revisit them once in a while. In my GMAT test there was hardly any question I hadn't seen in the GMAT club test.

When I started preparing for GMAT, I struggled a lot to find the right source to practice from. Hands down, nothing can beat GMAT club, whether it is their free material or paid tests. Even if you have spent all that money on buying official material, GMAT prep, etc, GC tests is a must to really prepare you for the exam. Some questions and tests might be tougher than the actual GMAT, but remember that that's the level of preparation you need if you want to get a Q49+ . Only disadvantage is that if you take too many quizzes, the number of mock CATs reduces.
