Not upto the mark

I had purchased the pack of 6 GMAT practice tests from Veritas for my preparation. I found the tests to be extremely inconsistent and did not have a balanced mix of questions in each CAT. Some tests were very easy and some were too difficult. The scoring too seemed to be off by a long way. I was consistently scoring in the 730-760 range in manhattan and official test whereas Veritas scored me 610-640 across all the tests.

Nevertheless, I would request Veritas to balance out the question difficulty and topic wise - which would make these tests very good from a time management perspective.

Veritas GMAT CAT Review

I had purchased the pack of 7 GMAT practice tests from Veritas for my preparation.I found the tests to be useful. But I found the tests to be extremely inconsistent. Some tests were very easy and some were too difficult. The difficult ones did prepare me for worst case scenario GMAT paper but verbal was way too difficult than actual paper. The scoring too seemed to be off by a long way. So students should not be disappointed with mock tests scores. Still I would request Veritas to balance out the question difficulty and topic wise - which would make these tests very good from a time management perspective.

I got free Veritas CATs with GMATClub Premium membership. I found their Quantitative section most relevant and helpful but their verbal section is bit on harder difficulty level as compared to real test. Secondly their verbal tests quality is not up to that par. Especially RC section is harder and passages are a bit longer in length. SC section do not replicate real test as well. Though CR section is quite relevant.
Moreover veritas CATs scoring algorithm is not preferable as i found that despite of attempting most of the questions right you still end up getting low score.
Nevertheless, veritas CATs are great source to build stamina and to get yourself aligned with real test.

Regards,
Hasnain Afzal

I would start with my own experience of GMAT test, I scored V30 which very low comapared to score of V32 -V34 which i got in Veritas tests. My actual score was mean of all the scores i got in veritas CATS.
So for me it was more or less very close to actual GMAT in terms of scoring. If we compare the level of questions , i would say practicing little hard questions is worth it as even easy questions in actual exam under stress appears difficult.So without exam stress Veritas Cats are good to practice , though they have higher difficulty.

I tried the free practice test and found that Veritas Prep's version of GMAT mock exam was delicately written to conform with the "logic" behind the real test. I had a pleasant test experience; the platform was easy to navigate and the solutions to each question showed a detail analysis of all answer choices.

As good representatives of GMAT questions were scarce, I decided to purchase a package that contained 6 additional mock exams and took 4 of them. After those tests, I would say that although the questions were great to practice with, each mock had its own concentration that didn't reflect the reality; for example, there could be a string of difficult questions or a particular area might be overrepresented.

However, as we can only find the next best GMAT questions from a small number of prep providers, Veritas Prep's ones are as good as they get.

I got my hands on the Veritas prep CATs when I purchased the premium membership on the GMAT Club. The CATs come along with a question bank (which is very useful) for selective practice. The explanations are very succinct and specially verbal explanations are helpful.

In terms of difficulty, I found the CATs to be a bit on the tougher side. The Quant questions are very hard with some requiring multiple concepts and traps. Usually on the GMAT prep the quant questions have one or at most two traps. In terms of scoring I felt the scores to be inflated (in terms of number of wrong questions - however, given that all the questions are on the tougher side, the inflated scoring must be trying to account for it)

All in all, really good set of questions. The question bank is super useful & CATs are tougher-than-the-GMAT , so if you are one of those people who believe in preparing for the worst so that the real thing becomes a breeze - these tests are for you!

Veritas Prep Tests

I bought 7 veritas prep CATs. The quality of the CATs is very good.
The difficulty of the CATs keeps on increasing as you go on completing each test. I found verbal section of tests to really tough. I think the kind of question you would get on test day will be similar to the questions that are there in veritas prep CATs. Overall one should buy these test to practice AWA and Integrated Reasoning in timed environment and to replicate test conditions. Integrated reasoning question are also quite interesting and tough in the CATs. So they are quite similar to the official tests.

I had heard a lot about the Veritas GMAT CATS and decided to buy it. I got 6 CATs. When I gave my 1st CAT, I didn’t score that well in it. I got a little disheartened. Then I saw at a few places that Veritas CATs are on a tougher side. I geared up and gave it 5 more CATs. Eventually my score increased but the things that I noticed in the CATs were that the difficulty level of the questions were not even. The later CATs had tougher questions rather than a balanced set and despite attempting a lot of incorrect ones, my score improved. This doesn’t show the true picture of your practice and preparation. The questions were good and the solutions were very well explained.

Veritas Prep TEST series

1. I recently bought the Veritas test series consisting of 7 tests/mocks.
2. The free question bank that Veritas provides you with is really helpful, with good quality Verbal Ability questions.
3. I find the Verbal part of Veritas to be more challenging with a range of diverse question set.
4. But its somehow difficult to score high on these mocks. I could only touch 680-700, as compared to getting scores in the range of 710-730 on official gmat prep mocks.
5. They run promotional offers in between where you can buy the same test set that is priced at $49 for as low as $15. I did the same.

I purchased these tests at a promotional rate of $15. These test have been very consistent so far. I have scored 660, 690, and 700 respectively. One complaint is that sometimes a certain test will seem to emphasize a certain topic such as probability or integer properties. Both the verbal and the quantitative sections have well constructed questions. My other complaint is that the question difficulty will ramp up very fast. If you get the first two to three questions right, you are sure to get a 700-750 level question. This is true for verbal and quantitative sections. Overall I am pleased with my purchase, especially with promotional rate, and recommend these to other people who want high quality unofficial tests.
