Retired GMAT paper tests

by marklar » Tue Feb 26, 2008 10:34 am
I'm about to get started on my second round of studying for the GMAT and i was curious to hear peoples thoughts on the retired GMAT paper tests. Are they worth the 25 bucks? Did you find them helpful?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

If you seek practice problems, stick with the OG books. The retired tests may be a good source for GMAT questions, but they are not reliable indicators of your actual score. The scoring algorithm for the GMAT computer-based test today is very different from the old paper tests.

Good luck!

I think the real questions from GMAC, including retired paper tests are the best prep materials.
