Small tucked-in center, can't complain

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

The Mumbai test center is small but well located in a software IT park in one of the lower floors. Has a narrow door opening, but the guards below know it and can direct
The staff is polite (Actually they don't interact much which is good) and carries out all guidelines as necessary. I appeared during July 2020, and COVID-19 guidelines were all followed. They didn't ask for a RT-PCR report at that time.
The restroom and other facilities were well maintained and noise level minimum. However I did have a noisy chair, but with the noise cancelling headphones it didn't really make a difference

Quant is tough, Verbal is a fair indicator

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

As the word-on-street is, Manhattan CATs indeed have tough Quants but fair verbal sections.

I have consistently score Q45-47 in Manhattan vs Q49-51 in GMAT club tests and Q49 in GMAT Online test as well. Specially the DS section is brutal in Manhattam. But dont think that more the difficulty the better you are prepared - even after taking 6 Manhattan CATs, my Quant score did not really improve, whereas my Verbal score did improve from 30s to 35s. Manhattan Verbal is a fair game and lands in same range/ difficulty for GMAT/ Kaplan/ GMAT club.

Still I would suggest Manhattam CATs because (1) they are cheap (2) prepares you for tough Quant and time management

Manhattan has 6 CATs, which you can reset multiple times. I personally have reset it twice, maybe even more are possible

Very indicative of real test scores, but need slight improvement

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I have given all 9 verbal tests in GMAT Club and 3 Quant tests, and can say the scores and difficultly level has been fairly indicative of my actual capability. Though I would caution to supplement this with other platforms e.g., MGMAT, Veritas which are slightly better
As other test series, GMAT club also pools these tests from a common pool of questions. At start, the quality was extremely good for 3-4 tests where I consistently scored V34-36, this was also my score on other platforms e.g., MGMAT, Kaplan. But then suddenly scores dropped to 25s, which demotivated me big time. I was consistently given 700+ questions (almost 60-70% of test) - I liked the practice but then the scores didnt mean much in my mind. Subsequent tests felt quite easy where I even went to V43, and of course was pleasantly surprised with this. But again I knew this wasnt my level cause I wasn't scoring it on other platforms. I assume something is wrong with their algorithm as my friend faced similar issue. But overall the quality of questions are good, and explanations satisfactory.
I scored Q50 consistently in my Quant - I was scoring similar on GMAT prep and MGMAT platform, so I think this is fine and nothing to highlight
