However for the people who find it difficult to prepare for GMAT exam due to schedule issue can try studying GMAT through Mobile App. There are several provider which offer such app like Magoosh, gradestack . The best part is you can prepare for GMAT by studying on the go. timjackson86 Newbie | Next Rank: 10 Posts Joined 18 Aug 2014 Posted: 3 messages Tue Aug 26, 2014 6:58 pm I think Manhattan GMAT and Kaplan provide the best GMAT practice test. -Tim http://www.acadsoc.om Nathan2508 Newbie | Next Rank: 10 Posts Joined 28 Aug 2012 Posted: 5 messages Test Date: August 2015 Target GMAT Score: 750 Sun Jun 07, 2015 1:15 pm My first practice test with minimal study was with GMATPrep and I scored a 690.

It's hard to say what accounts for the discrepancy between your performance on the Veritas tests and your performance on the GMATPrep test. One possibility is that sometimes when we learn new concepts, our scores dip because we end up attempting questions that we would previously have guessed on, and this throws a wrench into the rhythm of our timing. For this reason, a score decrease on early tests is quite common, irrespective of the source of these tests. Of course, there could easily be other variables at work here. My advice: focus less on the scores and more on the process. Review every practice test thoroughly. Make notes on anything you can improve. If there were times when you could have used a strategy, such as picking numbers or back-solving, note that. If there were questions you should have guessed on, note that. If there are concepts that are a little fuzzy, do some drilling in those categories until you're feeling more confident in whatever areas might be lagging. Then take another test. The hope is that the Veritas tests are, for whatever reason, underestimating your ability. If, in time, you can pull those scores up to 700, your GMATPrep scores will be even higher. Either way, keep us posted on your progress. _________________ Veritas Prep | GMAT Instructor Veritas Prep Reviews Save$100 off any live Veritas Prep GMAT Course

The best tests are the official ones from GMAC. The other ones have a lot of flaws

I'm roughly following the Magoosh "advanced 3-month" track but want to take a practice test apart form the diagnostic to really gauge how much prep I need to do. I've got the Manhattan Prep exams, Magoosh Practice exams, and Nova practice exams at my disposal. Which brand plus # practice test would be in the top 2-3 most accurate so I can get a feel for my baseline?

I have recently sat for my first practice test on Veritas Prep. I am little confused regarding the score I got and how the scoring was done. I have attached a snapshot showing the result and marked the part in red circle where my confusion is in. Shouldn't I get a higher percentile on verbal part based on the number of questions I got right?

The scoring algorithm isn't predicated solely on the number of incorrect vs number of corrects answers. The difficulty level of the questions you answer correctly or incorrectly is also taken into account, so it's possible to answer the same number of questions correctly on two different tests, but end up with significantly different scores. For more details on how the algorithm works, see here: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2013/07/gmat-tip-of-the-week-stop-counting-rights-and-wrongs-in-your-gmat-practice-tests/

Even if the tests are outdated and on paper...they're still the best. Third party material is a dilution (of quality) that occurs by attempted mimicry of source material and real algorhythm. Third party material may be great for practice, but NO substitute for using the real stuff. BellCurves has awesome Math Material (not so keen on their verbal) and their tests are quite good as well. _________________ Bara Sapir, MA, CHt, CNLP Founder/CEO & GMAT Badass Test Prep New York/Test Prep San Francisco Maximize your Score, Minimize your Stress!

The GMAT Prep tests are, historically, the most accurate predictors of how you'll perform on test day.

I agree with David: Your score, if you took it after that GMAT 2, will likely fall between 570-610...If you want it higher, look and see what your'e not getting right, identify patterns in how you answer, and then do your best to eliminate those go-to answers that simply aren't correct.
