Hi ronit1894,

The scoring algorithm on the Official GMAT is far more complicated than most people realize. Since that algorithm is proprietary, no GMAT company has an exact match for it, thus CAT scores can vary a bit based on the 'biases' involved in their respective designs. The most realistic CATs available are the 6 from GMAC (the 2 free CATs, and each of the 2 that come with Exam Pack 1 and Exam Pack 2), but the CATs offered by Kaplan, MGMAT and Veritas are 'close enough' to the real thing that those CATs will offer you a reasonably accurate score result (IF you use them correctly).

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

For official practice tests made by the maker of the GMAT, go to MBA.com. Those tests are the practice tests that are most like actual test. The first two are offered free. There are four more that you can purchase in two sets of two tests.

For a first test free and to buy more tests you could use the tests made by Manhattan Prep and by Veritas. These tests, while not exactly like the actual GMAT, are pretty close representations of the actual GMAT.

Other test prep companies, such as Kaplan, The Princeton Review and 800Score, also offer practice tests, in some cases on a first test free basis. In addition there are other sources of practice tests, such as the GMAT Club.

Some people stick with using official tests only, while others use a variety of tests, and I have seen one person take around 25 different practice tests in preparing for the GMAT.

One thing to be aware of is that while resetting and retaking official, or other tests, can be useful in certain ways, the experience of taking a retaken test is not quite the same as that of taking a fresh test or the actual GMAT. So be careful not to count too much on retaken tests during your preparation.

Hey,

Thanks for the suggestion.
Yes, I will not reset the test and retake it as then I won't be able to figure out whether I have improved or I just remember the answers.

Does the 'official guide 2016' has full length tests?

Well not all of the questions would be the same, but even if some of the questions were ones that you have seen before you wouldn't experience the time constraints or other pressures that you experience when all of the questions are new.

No. While the OG includes a diagnostic test, that test is not in the same format as the GMAT and is not considered a practice test.
