The question bank is not adaptive but delivers questions based on question type.

The questions come from various difficulty levels.

I never thanked Veritas prep for their question bank. The questions really boosted my confidence going into the test. Thanks :)

Thanks, guys - glad you're taking advantage of the Question Bank! And since the bank is my project let me shed a little more light on its features:

-It is not adaptive, but it is collecting a lot of user information that can be helpful for you. Within the solution to each question you can see difficulty information such as what % of users picked each answer choice so that you can get a feel for how hard questions are *and* what trap answers to watch out for.

-You can choose whatever quizzes you want - the number of questions and the question types (Data Sufficiency; Critical Reasoning; etc.)

-The Question Bank is something I can update at a moment's notice, so if you see anything that could be improved (a better way to solve a problem, a piece of math formatting that may look askew) you can email the address at the bottom of the screen, reference the question ID, and we can update those things quickly. I love this feature - it's allowing us to polish up questions on an ongoing basis.

-Similarly, if you think you've found an ambiguity or error, we're using the Question Bank the same way that the GMAT uses its unscored/experimental questions, to notice weird trends in the data that might alert us to typos, flawed logic, etc. That way, when questions make it into our practice tests and serve to help you hone in on your scoring ability, they've already been vetted by hundreds of users and we have a relatively objective view of their difficulty (which is why the Bank is not adaptive - we want to get a representative sample of users on each question).

-And let me thank everyone for using it - my favorite part of my workday is checking all the stats on our questions and using what we can learn from them to create better lessons, blog posts, forum posts, and practice questions. Thank you!
