GMAT Pill Practice Test FAQ
Is the GMAT Pill Practice Test computer adaptive?
Yes. The real GMAT Exam will be computer adaptive and this GMAT Pill Practice Test uses a computer adaptive algorithm. Upon answering questions correctly, you'll have a high probability of getting questions of higher difficulty. Likewise, upon answering questions incorrectly, the probability of getting a question of lower difficulty is increased. This applies for the 75 min Verbal and 75 min Quant sections, but NOT for the 30 min Integrated Reasoning section. For IR, the 12 questions are predetermined and you will receive them in sequential order, regardless of your accuracy.

What browser should I use?
We recommend using the Google Chrome Browser. Other browsers (Firefox) may at times not load the Math formulas correctly as it has a strict same-origin policy for cross-domain scripting. This causes it to time out waiting for web-based fonts to arrive. IE9 has this problem but not as extreme as Firefox. For this reason, we recommend using Google Chrome which does not appear to have the problem of loading the math symbols.
How long is the GMAT Pill Practice Test?
3 hours. The real exam is 3.5 hours and includes the AWA Writing Essay in the beginning. To make your life easier, we made this practice test focus on the 3 hours that are critical to your score. The 30 min for IR. Then the 75 min each for Quant and Verbal.
What if I lose internet connection during my gmat practice exam?
Not to worry. GMATPill's Practice Test has a built in resume feature. If your internet connection times out, simply come back to this page by clicking the GMATPill logo icon in the top left corner. You can do this at any time to leave the exam and then click on the "Resume" button to pick up where you left off. If upon submitting your response, your connection times out and you are unable to click that link, simply refresh the page and you should be able to continue onward.
Will doing more practice tests improve my score?
Highly doubtful. Some students believe that by doing as many practice questions as they can, they can learn as they go. And therefore, their score will improve. But there's a flaw to that reasoning. And that flaw is true for a LOT of gmat test takers. Most students will find out that the GMAT test is different. They can do thousands of practice questions and they might never see their score go up. Ultimately, after going through many practice questions, students' scores hit a plateau. Usually that plateau ends up being in the high 600s -- breaking into 700+ territory seems an impossibility. Or if it does occur, it's a rare occurrence in a practice test and highly unlikely to be replicated on the actual day of the exam where the score actually counts.
What really DOES matter is your approach. When it comes down to the GMAT exam, it's really just you and that computer in front of you. Nobody is around to help you. You must rely on yourself. You must rely on your thinking. And that's what GMATPill is about -- changing the way you think. Using a foundation of frameworks and application through watch-and-learn videos, you learn this new technique in grained into your mind. Even when you take the real exam, you may have Zeke's voice in the back of your head reminding you of what you should be paying attention to.
So bottom-line, doing thousands of practice questions will NOT help you break the upper limit of your existing score range.
I'm done with my Practice Test and scored horribly. What are my next steps?
Most people will freak out when they see their diagnostic test results. They may find out they made some silly mistakes, got unbelievably tricked a few times, had a tough time, maybe ran out of time. Each raw score point counts, especially on verbal as your score gets higher.
GMATPill helps you take that next step from panic to conquest. Read more about why investing in GMATPill is a smart investment decision by continuing on below
