The CATs provide a very good estimate of the actual score. However, the quantitative section is harder. In my opinion, the reason is not that the questions are harder but that the algorithm will bombard you with 700-800 level questions in the very beginning- this tactic is enough to wreck a mid-range test taker, like me (frustration comes at the beginning of the test; it is difficult to stand on feet). However, the key is to manage time. Even the initial crisis can be checked if time is well managed later in the test.
The verbal is comparable to other CATs. Questions are standard and tricky. However, some critical reasonings questions seem to have taken too far!
GMAT Club Tests have the highest collections of CATs for Quantitative. You have options to switch from exam mode to practice mode, which is not timed. Every time you finish a CAT, even with practice mode, you will receive a score from 1 to 60 and the corresponding percentile. The answers have been well explained.
The screen image and the font size are same as the Official GMAT. This feature enables to experience the real GMAT test, every time you take a GMAT Club CAT, and to minimize preliminary fear to take the Official GMAT practice tests. The reason is that you have already answered a huge number of questions in the same texture through GMAT Club Tests.
I used E-gmat Verbal online for 6 months. The course is an excellent tool for verbal. The audio and videos are HD quality which gives a live experience to learn. Additionally, the layout of the slides is well organized and facilitate learning effectively. The course covered extensively every aspect of GMAT Verbal. The contents are rich enough to simulate real GMAT questions. Moreover, the explanations provided facilitates learning extensively. Although it is hard to say which module in the E-gmat is the best because every module is equally rich, I liked the sentence correction module the most. This module gives the complete understanding of the topics tested on GMAT, considering the most difficult questions.
Experts`Global is a comprehensive prep-course. The quantitative section offers a wide range of videos on topics covered in GMAT. Both quantitative and verbal sections offer such an extensive questions bank by topic that you will rarely find such a useful question bank in other preps.
However, the quantitative section tries to provide some "formulas" to solve problems. I find this effort counterproductive since GMAT is more interested in critical thinking. "Formulas" are just a tool to help in the critical thinking process. Another aspect is worth mentioning. The exams were not adaptive. This lacking was simply frustrating since an adaptive score predicts more accurately the actual GMAT score.
