GMATCLUB.com claims that these are the hardest quant tests in the market, but I respectfully disagree. Manhattan Mocks have difficult quant portion than these tests.
1. Large question pool.
2. Questions relevant to the GMAT - one won't find questions which are not relevant to the GMAT. GMATClub must have given great efforts to sort the questions out, more so for the fact that they have a huge number of difficult quant level questions. Almost every difficult and super difficult level question has a solution that would take 2 or at max 3 minutes. This is important since as a GMAT taker one needs to practice GMAT like content.
3. Of all the mocks I have given, except for the official mocks, gmatclub mocks have the closest user interface to the actual gmatprep and the actual GMAT exam.
1. Filled with bugs, pausing the test at times just finishes the test thereby awarding a score of 6.
2. GMATclub moderator team - they would block your account for no reason (I was given kudos inflation as the reason). They won't even reply to your queries. I already had the mocks subscribed through e-gmat verbal online and there was no reason for me to indulge in their so called 'kudos inflation'. Now, this was done 2 weeks before my actual GMAT exam and they could give you unnecessary trouble at any moment.
3. Algorithm - It is far from the GMATPrep and hence actual GMAT. It would randomly award you a Q51 or a Q50 with a large number of incorrect questions I once got a Q51 with 10 incorrect answers. Be aware that it doesn't happen in the actual gmatprep - I had given 7 gmatprep mocks (I gave gmatprep 1 twice) and I analyzed those mocks thoroughly. There is a huge, and when I say huge I really mean huge gap between the algorithms of gmatprep and gmatclub. I got Q49 in EP2-2 with 4 incorrect answers (Q no. 17, 25, 36 and 37 incorrect) and a Q51 on EP1-2 with only 2 incorrect (somewhere around 20 and 35). Gmatclub.com algorithm would have awarded a Q51 in both the cases.
4. Verbal - Stick to official content for verbal and if you really want extra practice, one's next and final stop should be the content developed by Manhattan. Don't waste your time on verbal questions from any other content provider and this applies to Gmatclub as well. Lines of reasoning on verbal portion, especially CR and RC, from gmatprep and any other provider is quite different. One may use the gmatclub.com verbal mocks for essentially working on timing issues. However, one should not fret too much on the incorrect questions, particularly if one involves tuning a strategy or approach, since GMAC doesn't think the way others think. The importance of sticking to official content cannot be overstated.

Before purchasing the test pack, I tried the free CAT and ended up scoring a Q50. But my scores in the official mocks did not exceed Q48. I purchased the test pack. The questions now are more adaptive, and the tests are harder around the end. Would recommend the tests to any serious test taker desirous of scoring a Q49+. The interface mimics that of the actual tests. The analytics can be better. There is also a feature where you can input if you have guesseed the answer. But I'm skeptical about the analytics about "guessed answers" as not everyone would be keen on taking the time to manually input tick whether they had guessed it. Overall, it's a good test pack. You should buy it one month prior to the test date and look at taking one sectional a day.

Being an Indian Engineer(Majority of Indians have engineering degree :P), I had this belief ingrained in my head that GMAT quant will be a cake walk and obviously this belief of mine was shattered when in my first OG Prep I could not even score a Q40! That's when I googled a lot about which test material will give me the best exposure and all fingers pointed to GMAT club tests. I would highly recommend these tests for Quants as they are the best match to the real GMAT test.The level of difficulty is an absolute match for the real GMAT(I feel). If you are scoring Q50+ in these then your actual Q50 is guaranteed. In a nutshell, this test bundle is worth every penny.

Verbal test - These are very good comprehensive tests, which will help to increase your Verbal score. The questions were similar to official GMAT questions. However, I recommend to take these test only after completing your basics in CR and SC.
Quant test - These tests helped me a lot to improve my score and provided a good chunk of questions similar to official ones. Taking a test daily one month before your GMAT exam will definitely help you to achieve your desire score.
I personally recommend to take these test and analysis it properly before appearing for GMAT . Do not just go on to complete the course, learn from your mistakes and then only take another test.

The GMAT Club Tests evaluate an aspirant on all fronts, covering each aspect from the wide pool of GMAT Club's question database.
The beauty of this test lies in emulating the similar nature of the algorithm as GMAT does.
However, the verbal questions are NOT up to the mark. They often lack the innate resoluteness (error-free nature) of the actual GMAT-Questions.
Nevertheless, 3 things will ALWAYS work in favor:
1) The user interface, explanations, and analytics are highly intuitive and paramount in deciding the weaker sections.
2) The test can be self-designed in several modes such as Test-mode, Quiz-mode, and Study-mode, providing more freedom to gauge and calibrate the preparation.
3) An aspirant can effortlessly assess himself/herself in the Quant questions and ascertain to the paths of Success!

About GMAT Club tests i got to know through one colleague of mine and i have been active on Gmat Club since then . My quants score improved from 39 to 46 , Verbal not that much but definitely some improvement i have seen . I recommend GMAT CLUB Tests for Quants if you want a in your score from 46 to 51.The Solutions provided by Bunuel are nicely explained and you can see other explanations too if you are not satisfied with Bunuel's explanation . You see mostly 750 plus level questions which are very helpful in improving your score. You need to keep an error log for your mistakes and retake the wrong ones through quiz to see if you are comfortable with that type of question.

Overall very good for practice. These definitely help in improvement.
1) Enough in quantity(25). But here a con: verbal CATs are very few, though we need more of verbal CATs than quants.
2) Very good difficulty level((This is the best part)).
3) A Big database of Questions.
4) Good Solution and analytics.
5) Close interface to that of actual GMAT.
1)GMAT Club tests are Computer-Based but they are not much adaptive. It means their front-end will look like a GMAT Test but the back-end adaptive algorithm is not based upon any adaptive base enough to approximate real GMAT.
2) Very few verbal tests.
3) Sectional tests do not give real test like feeling.
PS: I definitely recommend these tests to Aspirants.

GMAT Club tests are one of the best resource available in market for preparation, for Quant preparation you do not need any other resources. Quality of question is very good also number of quant tests are enough for preparation. The best part of GMAT club tests are question bank consists of more than 1000 question in quant, which makes this test unique and stand out from other test series available in market.
For verbal I think number of tests are not sufficient and GMAT CLUB needs to work on increasing questions in this section.
Overall test series is cost effective and very good source for preparation.

Although the questions are of supreme quality and hard, taking GMAT club test will be a good tool for the one's looking to get a Q51 on the test. GMAT club tests are very good and also hard compared to any other CAT tests and questions available.
One who get 50/51 in GMAT club tests will definitely get a Q51 in the original test. I would highly recommend to get the GMAT Club tests and practice your quants section.
I am not sure about the verbal part of the CAT, but if it is quants it is GMAT Club.
All the best.

the level of quant questions is Good, for good quant score we can practice the moderate and hard quant questions which account for about 70% of total questions
hope i will do well in the exam by practicing the questions well and learning from my mistakes seeing not to repeat them again . the way the analysis is provided for these questions is also great which will teach us in a very good manner .
the Verbal questions bank is decent but to score higher we have to go through other verbal questions but for quant it is really an amazing set of questions. we wont regret buying and trying them
All the best for everyone
