Recommended Practice Questions: What’s Good and What’s Not


The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 12th Edition
 - I ran through a some of these questions and they’re also very good. I highly recommend.

If you’re like me, you LOVE free stuff! There’s tons free material out there and I’ll show you where they are! Here’s a list of some GMAT CAT exams you can use for practice. They usually require you to sign up for their email list, but it’s free. You can always sign up with a non-personal email address to get the practice questions.

Free Stuff————————

GMAT Prep – This GMAT CAT is free and was my only source I used for my practice exams (along with Official Guide). I highly recommend it as it is very similar to the real exam and created by the same people.

800score - Sign up your email to get the CAT

Petersons - Sign up and get the questions.

4tests  - Here are some sample questions.

Kaplan - a free CAT

 Princeton Review - a free CAT

I did not find the Kaplan or Princeton Review books very useful as their questions varied in difficulty. I don’t think they are a good gauge of what the real test would be.

So there’s a lot of free material. To start off, you should definitely get the GMATPrep software I listed up top and the official guide. I would say these are the best sources (the only ones I used).  The other ones can give you more practice but are somewhat less realistic than the first two recommendations. 

If you study effectively you shouldn’t need to go through all of the above resources. That would take forever.  Going through extra questions can help, but if you are approaching the questions inefficiently, you’ll reach a ceiling where you won’t get any higher unless you change your thinking. Doing more questions will not necessarily help you improve your score.

When you do take a practice exam, make sure you simulate the real exam conditions! Take a full Saturday or Sunday and start the quant in a quiet room at 9am or so. Take a short lunch break and then take the verbal section.

Many prep programs include bells and whistles like CAT tests in their programs to justify their high prices. But really there’s plenty of free ones out there. I would recommend you take advantage of these free CAT tests and apply the frameworks and strategies of the GMAT Pill during your studies to get the most bang for your buck.
