The GMATCLUB Tests are an absolutely must have if you want to score a 700+ on you actual GMAT.
I had extensively used GMATCLUB tests for my Quant preparations and I can confidently say that it is one of the best resources out there. The quality of questions in the tests is absolutely top notch and really prepares you well for the real GMAT. Once you are done with learning the concepts, GMATCLUB tests do a phenomenal job in helping you solidify the concepts.
The questions are divided into three difficulty level: 500 level, 600 level and 700 level. Though the 700 level questions are a bit tougher than that of the real GMAT, the questions still give you a very realistic feel of the actual Exam. The test interface also closely resembles that of the actual GMAT. The questions are also divided into different topics and you can also take custom quizzes to improve on your weak areas.
It also has a large question pool (1000+ in Quant) and gives you ample practice in all the different topics. Each question is designed to make you think on your feet. Plus the tips and tricks used to answer each questions by Bunuel is absolutely incredible. By the time I was done with these test my average time to answer the questions went from 3+ minute to under 2 minute even for the most difficult questions.
One of the best things I found was that after the official explanation, there was link that takes you to the GATCLUB thread discussion where the question is discussed in detail and you can ask any doubt you have with the regard to the question and the explanation and one of the GMATCLUB experts is sure to clear your doubt.
Further, another thing I found incredibly helpful was the Test analysis feature. It helps you learn about your performance in the test and helps you identify your weak areas.
All in all I feel GMATCLUB tests are an absolute blessing for the GMAT test takers and is sure to help you achieve your target score.

I got my subscription to MGMAT tests with a purchase of MGMAT Sentence correction guide. Each MGMAT book contains a 32 digit code which can be used to access the tests.
MGMAT tests are one of the best tests available in the market. They are a notch tougher than the real GMAT which makes it worth practicing with.
Quant- MGMAT quant is one of the toughest quant tests out there. The difficulty level of the questions is much higher than the GMATPREP or even the actual GMAT. I always ran out of time while practicing MGMAT tests which never happened on the GMATPREP tests. Secondly I felt that the quant questions on the MGMAT tests involved intensive calculation. However practicing higher difficulty questions definitely prepares you well for the actual test.
Verbal- I felt the verbal section was a level below the actual GMAT. There were a few SC and CR questions with which I didn’t agree with but overall nice and challenging questions. RC was definitely tough and more often included long passages. Overall a decent practice.
Post test analysis- I loved this part as they give you a nice detailed analysis of your test which helps the test taker evaluate their tests in details and MGMAT has great explanations for all the questions which helps the test taker improve their weak areas.
Scoring Algorithm- I normally scored between 650-730 on the MGMAT tests. My low scores were mainly because of low quant score. But the algorithm is still better than most GMAT prep Companies and close to the GMAT PREP tests.
Overall I think the practice tests are great.
Word of advice- Do purchase the MGMAT Sentence correction guide as it is a great guide to learn all the SC concepts and the guide will also give you access to the MGMAT tests.
