Are you smart enough for an MBA? New GMAT practice exams released

ExamTest takers preparing for the GMAT exam with the popular GMATPrep software can now purchase two additional computer adaptive practice exams made up of retired GMAT questions.

The much-anticipated ‘Exam Pack 1’ is being released today by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the non-profit council of business schools that administers the GMAT exam for graduate business and management programs worldwide.

“For years, GMAC has offered to all test takers two full-length, computer adaptive GMAT exams that simulate the exam experience as part of our free GMATPrep software. However, test takers regularly request additional practice opportunities,” said Andy Martelli, GMAC vice president of new product development. “In response, we developed Exam Pack 1 to help students get the benefits of additional practice using real, but retired, GMAT exam questions.”

The two unique, additional exams give test takers even more opportunities to practice using the same computer adaptive algorithm as used in the Quantitative and Verbal sections of the real test. Like the original free GMATPrep tests, the Exam Pack 1 tests also provide real-time scoring for the Quantitative, Verbal, and Integrated Reasoning sections, as well as essay prompts for the Analytical Writing Assessment. Questions used in Exam Pack 1 are not found in any other GMAT preparation product.

Exam Pack 1 can be purchased and downloaded from the for US$39.99 and requires that users have already installed the free GMATPrep software. Like the real GMAT exam, each Exam Pack test comprises one 30-minute Analytical Writing Assessment prompt, 12 Integrated Reasoning questions, 37 Quantitative questions, and 41 Verbal questions. Users taking each of the two Exam Pack tests more than once may see the same questions repeated.
