640 Q49 V27
I just want to take some time to give a genuine review of GMAT club tests. I wrote few tests on US holidays recently and also I was given complete access to CAT's after subscribing to their youtube channel. From the test experience I had, I would say that if one is able to get 720+ in GMAT club mocks, then definitely they can manage 740-750 around in real GMAT. I can say this confidently based on the difficulty level we will be trained from their mocks. My first math CAT gave a score of 50. I was impressed but later it became 49,47,48,49. The moment I saw 47 I realized that I need to pay more attention while solving rather than being confident in my math skills. Though one knew all math concepts, still it depends how we apply them at the correct time and with the correct strategy. This is what I liked the most in GMAT.
Finally, if anyone is thinking which mocks to take for a good hands-on experience of GMAT, then GMAT club CAT's are more than enough to have a score of 740+. All the BEST!!!

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]
I'm Chaitanya from India. I already wrote CAT 2017 (Indian MBA entrance exam) and secured 88% but was rejected to get into any of the IIM's as I fall in general category. So then I decided to take GMAT and started researching it. At first, I just saw what's the pattern of the exam. Then I researched a lot about B-schools worldwide and their fee structure. After intense research, I shortlisted a few schools and started preparing for GMAT. Initially, I enrolled in a classroom program (IMS Learning center) in my city. The way they taught and the level of difficulty in their practice questions is more than of GMAT standard. But still, I learned from them and practiced many questions. The first official mock I took is in May 2018 and I scored 550 (I don’t remember the split). I didn’t get any sort of negative emotion on seeing this score. I just felt I must start preparing from this level. From then I started preparing seriously. As I am a working professional I studied for 2 hours on weekdays and 4-6 hours on weekends. After 3 months of study, I took the second official mock and score 580. Now I’m little bit depressed seeing this score after 3 months of study. I still went ahead and booked the exam slot. My first GMAT score was 580 (Q47 and V23). I am not at all satisfied with this score but still, I accepted the score to just keep myself motivated on seeing this score again and again.
I now started to prepare again and kept tight deadlines for my preparation. I gave myself 3 more months of time to retake. In the meanwhile, I was given the Experts’ Global 1-month course as a complimentary from them. At that time, an offer was being run by them to get a full-length course for a month. After getting full access to their course, that is when my preparation way has changed. I can say the course simply changed my way of understanding and expanded my boundaries. The quant section, which I liked the most, is designed in such a way to get Q51 if one completely understands the concepts taught in that section. Also, the course was organized very nicely. It was organized in levels of 1,2 and 3. One must start from level 1 by learning all basics and practicing questions of that level. I started preparing from scratch in both quant, though I’m good at solving math, and verbal. Going in an organized way gave me a lot of confidence. One more best part in their course is the 15 mocks. No other market course gives these many mocks to practice. I took around 7 mocks later which my access expired. Though my access for a month, I asked them to extend it for 15 more days as I have my exam coming soon. They are very kind in that and extended my access. Remember, all of this is for FREE! Finally, the day has come and took my second mock. This time my score was 640 (Q49 V27). Though it is still not that great score, but a 60-point improvement is a good one for me. As I just had one month of preparation from Experts’ Global, I was able to push my score +60 points. Later this attempt I applied for few B-schools with this score and finally confirmed my entry into EDHEC Business School. Fortunately, they gave me a chance to increase my scholarship amount by retaking GMAT and improving my score. Now I am again preparing for GMAT and this time I purchased Experts’ Global complete course and preparing from it. I am confident enough to push my score to 720 at least this time. I haven’t planned any date of examination yet but plan to take it somewhere in July end or August start.
Finally, a big thanks to the whole Experts’ Global team for making such an organized approach to crack GMAT.
