GMAT Practice Question Platform FAQ
Q: Can I do my GMAT studying here?
Absolutely, that is what the Practice Pill Platform was designed for. It is free to create a login and mark down your answers.
Go ahead and attempt the hundreds of mini-practice sets, which are generally broken down into sets of 3 GMAT practice questions. When you finish a set of 3 questions in a given section, you will automatically be redirected to the main tab page for that particular section. For example, if you finish a set of 3 sentence corrections, you will automatically be redirected to the sentence correction page, which will display which questions you attempted and which ones you did not.
Of course, you will need to be logged in to see these stats.
Q: If I have a question, can I post a question?
Absolutely. This is an open forum where you can discuss anything you want about any question. If you have general questions about a specific section, we ask that you go that section tab and post your question there. If you have general GMAT questions, you can post them on this page at the very bottom. You may post anonymously if you would like. Our staff will be available to respond to your inquiries.
Q: Is this platform free?
Yes, the platform is free. You can use it during your study process free of charge. You can register a username and password for free and track your answers to each of the questions. Certain questions and certain video explanations will require a paid GMAT Pill login to access. There is also a limit to the total # of questions for which you can track your response. Obtaining a login gives you full access. This login can be acquired from the signup page.
Q: Who uses the GMAT Practice Pill Platform?
MBA candidates from around the world use this platform to prepare for their GMAT exam. Keep in mind you should always use the Official Guide and GMAT prep as your number one resources. The GMAT Pill course and Practice Pill Platform are great resources to supplement your preparation.
Q: Does this platform include the integrated reasoning questions?
Yes. The newer section to the GMAT exam is called integrated reasoning. We have an entire section tab dedicated to the GMAT integrated reasoning section, which is broken down into four subsections---one for each of the four major question types: two part analysis, graphics interpretation, table analysis, and multi source reasoning.
Q: How long does it take to prepare for the GMAT?
Most people spend 3-6 months preparing for the GMAT exam - usually on and off. That's a large amount of time for busy, working professionals. It's not uncommon to see people lock themselves in a room for 3-6 months and sacrifice other areas of their life - just so that they can hammer out this exam. And it doesn't always end pleasantly.
In the GMAT Pill, we specialize in helping students maximize their score in as little time as possible. See our 1 Month GMAT Study Plan here. We do notwaste time teaching you things that are nice to know but not crucial for the exam. We focus only on what you absolutely need to know for the GMAT exam and we do it quickly.

Q: Which section is the most difficult GMAT section?
The answer to this question is different for each person. We here at GMAT Pill would say the questions that require the most thinking tend to be the Two Part Analysis and MultiSource subsections of the Integrated Reasoning section. These sections require a good deal of reasoning skills - kind of like critical reasoning on steroids. Additionally, there are multiple parts to each question - usually 3 parts. And there is no partial credit. However, note that these questions do not affect your overall 800 score.
Engineers, IT technicians, and otherwise math-oriented individuals may find the GMAT verbal section most difficult. Non-natives, especially, may struggle with the GMAT sentence correction section and reading comprehension section. Since the critical reasoning section involves a bit of logic, some people who do well with math also tend to find critical reasoning as their strongest area for Verbal. Of course, this is not always the case.
English majors and otherwise literary-oriented individuals may find the verbal section easier to tackle while the math areas more of a challenge. In particular, these types of individuals may find mathematical symbols, probability, permutations, rates, geometry problems, and questions related to sufficiency of data a bit unusual to answer. For these individuals, we recommend a greater emphasis on math preparation.
Q: Which section counts the most to my overall 800 GMAT score?
You will have two major sections contributing to your overall 800 score - the quant and the verbal section. There is a heavier weighting on your verbal score - particularly in the higher levels (above 700). We've documented this phenomenon on this article. Within the GMAT verbal section, we'd say the order of importance is as follows: reading comprehension, critical reasoning, sentence correction.
Q: Where are the video explanations?
Simply click Show Answer and a video player will display below the question. Select videos will be available for free. Otherwise, if you see an error message, you will need a GMAT Pill course member login to access the video explanation.
These videos contain the thought process (i.e., secret sauce) for how to approach that specific question. Remember, the GMAT is a reasoning test so your thought process is critical for your performance on test day.

What is the GMAT Pill and how will it help me?
The GMAT Pill is a top-rated online video course that is designed to help you study less, but score more. It may sound counter-intuitive, but it's true. If you approach studying in the right way, you can reduce your study time by a large amount and maximize your score.
The GMAT Pill specializes in a "thought process approach" where Zeke Lee, the creator of GMAT Pill, thinks through GMAT questions in real time. As you watch and listen to how he thinks, you'll automatically absorb his thinking process and think along the same wavelengths as he does. Your approach to GMAT test questions will be that much more natural and intuitive. You won't need to memorize fancy grammar terms or formulas.
Remember, the GMAT is a test of reasoning - so learning how to reason is the best approach to preparing for the GMAT. Simply learning concepts is not enough! Anybody can learn concepts, but only a few can actually master the reasoning behind the questions. And nobody teaches that reasoning and thought process better than the GMAT Pill.
