thanks eric. id gladly pay $20 for the knewton tests ($80 for 4) instead of paying $500 ish for their entire package, which i have no use for! i cant wait to hear what the knewton reps have to say!

Thanks for your inquiry about Knewton.

While we don't currently sell our CATs separately, we do have an option in which students can take our course for 2 weeks for only $200. All the CATs are available during that period.

Please DM me for more info.

Best,
Josh

Thanks Josh. Knewton is entitled to do whatever it pleases :) But I do think you have an opportunity here. I see larger revenues driven by more volumes. And my hunch is, it shouldn't affect your bottom line (that is customers buying just the tests instead of the more expensive "complete" package). Look at MGMAT. Also, what you suggest isn't the same thing. I compare it to renting a movie for 24 hours. There is too much pressure to watch the movie in the allotted time! Also, I don't see a point in taking 4 tests in 14 days. Maybe you will eventually move in this direction, but that will be well after I've taken my GMAT.
