Harder than GMAT Prep & great verbal explanations...

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

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!

Hardest Quantitative questions (Hard for the right reasons...)

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

Have been using the GMAT Club tests for over 6 months now. Tried them out on holidays ( when they are available absolutely free) and realized that many of the questions required "out-of-the-box" thinking. Went ahead and got a subscription for the same 3 months prior to the test date. These questions are hard for all the right reasons. Extreme values, integers-only assumption, figure not drawn to scale on purpose... such kind of tricks get drilled into the test taker's mind and help in reducing similar mistakes elsewhere. Whenever I have not given a test in a weeks window, I have started making more mistakes which can be categorized as silly. So A must solve repository of tests & questions. However, I do feel sometimes that the scoring is a little on the high side ( Have got Q51 with 5 questions incorrect).

If you are looking for Hard quant questions ( for the right reasons...) go ahead and try the GMAT club tests. They won't disappoint.
