I have been studying GMAT materials for a year. I took the first three actual GMAT exams on Aug 2017, Dec 2017, and Mar 2018, respectively. I had taken my fourth GMAT on Aug 2018 - the actual score is 720 (Q49 V40 IR5) - before I encountered GMATClub Quant Test the following month.

The review I write here is purely based on both my experience in taking four (yes, four!) real GMAT exams and my drill with some of the 600-level and 700-level questions available in GMATClub Quant Tests.

I confidently say that the tone of most questions in GMAT Club Quant Tests is, undoubtedly, very similar to that of any question I encountered in the actual GMAT. The questions in the GMATClub Tests are apparently as hard as, if not harder than, the "hard" questions from all past GMAT exams that I did.

I learned from experience that every actual GMAT will throw several uncommon and hard quant questions (from approximately second half of the session) that can only be solved under 2.5 mins if I apply "logical" quantitative reasoning. Unfortunately, as shown in the ESR of my fourth GMAT exam, I often failed to "creatively" solve those hard questions under 2:30 mins. Admittedly, I need to train myself with mock tests that have a bunch of realistic hard quant questions.

Practicing the medium (600 level) to hard (700 level) questions in GMATClub tests has really helped me to improve my mental strength and endurance and to sharpen my "logical" quantitative reasoning. This training is a must-do for me (and probably for everyone) to achieve a target score of Q50-51.

I hope that I can achieve a Q51 and a total score of >770 for my fifth GMAT exam. I hope you all the best for your incoming test and don't forget to wish me luck! #Fingercrossed.

I finally got done with the second attempt of GMAT and was relieved to see a satisfactory 720 (Q49, V40) in Aug 2018. Previously, I scored 680 (Q49, V34) in Mar 2018

Reading debriefs on GMAT Club, I decided to purchase the EGMAT Verbal course for three reasons:
1. It allowed me to study at my own pace and style, and
2. The cost was within my budget.
3. Admittedly, I am weak in GMAT Verbal.

After studying for the verbal section and completing Verbal Scholaranium in about 6 months, I took my first GMAT slot for Mar 2018. I scored a 680 (V34, Q49), a score below my target score 700, in this test and didn't feel satisfied.

Having taken a blow, I analysed what went wrong and realised that I had not done any OG questions at all. Learning from my mistakes, I decided to practice all OG questions and to redo all Verbal Scholaranium.

I was satisfied with the 720 (V40, Q49) score on my second GMAT attempt. Key takeaway that I believe to contribute to this 700+score is to always practice lots of questions (OG and Verbal Scholaranium).

Materials referred & recommended:
1. EGMAT Verbal. Don't forget to do all Verbal Scholaranium.
2. GMAT OG

Cheers!
