SIMULATOR FEATURES LIST:
Scoring Engine: The CATPrep
Simulator includes an accurate scoring engine that truly separates it from any
other practice materials available. Our simulator has proven to be an incredibly
accurate indicator of student preparedness and is currently used by students and
course instructors worldwide as the most
accurate score indicator available
Adaptive Questions: Another key feature available in our
nowhere else, is our simulation of the GMAT's question selection
algorithm. Other practice exams provide only the number of questions you will be
presented on test day, but this could never simulate a real GMAT exam! On the
real exam, your next question is chosen from a pool of thousands of questions of
varying difficulty. The GMAT will continue to present you with harder and harder
questions until your performance begins to level out. The GMAT uses this performance dependent question selection algorithm to narrow in on your final
section score! Here again, CATPrep's software has provided an
accurate simulation. Our GMAT Simulator contains over 300 questions of
predetermined difficulty and will present them to you according to your current
performance level. For high performers, this is especially important, because
you need to practice under conditions where you are continually presented with
difficult questions. Only under these conditions will you learn to accurately
manage your time in a manner conducive to achieving the highest score possible!
New Question Types: Our question pool has been updated with the newest question
types to appear on the GMAT. Some of the new critical reasoning questions that
ask "The two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?" have been
unofficially named bold-faced critical reasoning questions. You're guaranteed to see at least one
critical reasoning question on every simulated exam, and high scorers will
encounter the more difficult probability questions that are starting to appear
on actual GMAT exams.
Time Management: remaining time is displayed in the top-left hand
corner of the Simulator, and just like on the real exam, you may make the timer
invisible until there are only 5 minutes remaining on the current section. At
that time, the timer will countdown in minutes and seconds, and can not be
Endurance Test: Just practicing on the Math or Verbal sections
separately won't provide the type of preparation you need to score your best.
You need to practice through the grueling 3.5 hours of mental focus with only
two 5 minute breaks. Our Simulator provides the full GMAT experience including
the AWA Section and it accurately times the entire exam.
Support for Candidates with Disabilities: The Graduate
Management Admission Council makes several accommodations available to test
takers with documented disabilities. Our software simulates the actual
nonstandard options available to these candidates and allows them to practice
under the true conditions they will experience on test day.
Review your results: After your exam is complete you are presented with your score and a chance to review the questions on your exam along with your answers, the correct answers, timing analysis, and an explanation.
If you're preparing for the GMAT now, or simply want to evaluate your current
preparedness, you will find the CATPrep Simulator an invaluable
resource. Please give it a try today!
