"The Veritas Prep GMAT Question Bank lets you focus on specific problem areas and build confidence through repetition. Being able to target specific question formats helped me to turn my weaknesses into strengths, and go from pre-test scores in the low 600′s to a 700+ score on test day!"
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this really free to use? What’s the catch?
Yes, it is 100% free, and there is no catch! As part of our ongoing commitment to providing the most accurate measurement for Veritas Prep GMAT course and private tutoring students, we continually create and evaluate new GMAT practice questions. After thorough testing and review, many of these questions will eventually make their way into Veritas Prep GMAT practice tests. By answering these practice questions, you are helping us evaluate and refine these items, ultimately assisting in our ongoing effort to make our practice tests even better and more accurate.
How many questions are in the GMAT Question Bank?
The number of GMAT practice questions varies over time. New questions are created, edited, and added, while some GMAT questions that have proven to be useful and accurate are moved from this preparation tool to our computer-adaptive practice tests, and still other questions are retired or reworked. The GMAT Question Bank currently contains hundreds of realistic GMAT practice questions, and we will continue to add new ones on a regular basis. The number of practice questions available to you will continue to vary over time as new questions are added, moved to practice tests, or retired.
Are these official GMAT questions?
The only source for official GMAT practice questions is the Graduate Management Admission Council, which produces The Official Guide for GMAT Review and the GMATPrep application. The questions in the GMAT Question Bank were created by Veritas Prep GMAT instructors and course authors with years of GMAT teaching, private tutoring, and writing experience, and they have been designed to measure students’ higher-order thinking skills in the exact same way that official GMAT questions you’ll encounter on exam day do.
What kinds of practice questions are in the GMAT Question Bank?
The Veritas Prep GMAT Question Bank includes all six question types that you find in the adaptive parts of the exam: In the GMAT verbal question bank section, you’ll see all three kinds of verbal reasoning questions that you’ll face on the exam: Sentence Correction, Critical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension. In the GMAT quantitative question bank section, you’ll find the two formats of quantitative reasoning questions the test poses (Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency), as well as the full range of mathematical content required by the GMAT, from Arithmetic to Combinatorics. Finally, you’ll also find a section dedicated to Integrated Reasoning questions, covering the most common types and formats you’ll have to tackle in that portion of the exam!
Is the Veritas Prep GMAT Question Bank adaptive?
The GMAT Question Bank is not adaptive. When you start a study session and generate a set of practice questions, you can choose the number of questions you want to be served as well as what kinds (Critical Reasoning, Sentence Correction, Reading Comprehension, Problem Solving, Data Sufficiency, and/or Integrated Reasoning) you want to practice. The difficulty level of the questions that are served to you will vary. After completing the problems, you'll be able to see the estimated level of difficulty (and the percentage of students who chose each answer) for each of the questions that you attempted in that session, and you can revisit that information at any point in the future. For an adaptive testing experience, sign up for our free computer-adaptive GMAT practice test.
Can I buy access to Veritas Prep’s GMAT practice tests?
In addition to the one free GMAT practice test that we offer to all prospective GMAT takers, you have the option to buy access to six more computer-adaptive GMAT practice tests for $49, giving you the ability to take a total of seven tests. These tests use the same computer-adaptive system that powers the practice tests of Veritas Prep’s GMAT course and private tutoring students!
Will I ever see the same question twice?
A person with one GMAT question bank account will only see a given practice question one time. Once you complete that question, the Veritas Prep GMAT question bank system knows that you have already answered it, and you will not be served the question again. You will always be able to go back and review your performance on a given question on the "Your Practice Quizzes" page in your question bank account.
Why do I need to register to use the GMAT Question Bank?
Registering for an account for the Veritas Prep GMAT question bank allows you to come back and log in again, review your progress and revisit past questions, and continue your GMAT practice over the entire length of your study regimen.
Will you sell my information to anyone else?
Never. The login information you provide is only used to create an account for you and to allow you to log in and continue your GMAT preparation later.
Do you use official GMAT questions?
While Veritas Prep GMAT course and private tutoring students frequently choose to supplement their study resources with official GMAT questions from GMAC’s GMAT Prep software or various Official Guide to the GMAT products, both our set of practice tests and our GMAT question bank only include questions that were created by the Veritas Prep team of GMAT instructors and authors. For practice tests using official GMAT questions, we recommend GMAC’s free GMAT Prep software, which gives you two free full-length practice tests (and the opportunity to purchase access to more) from the organization that develops and runs the GMAT.
Where do the questions in these tests come from?
Every question in our GMAT practice tests was written by our team of experienced Veritas Prep GMAT instructors. They have been designed to measure students’ higher-order thinking skills in the same way official GMAT questions do on the actual exam. Each of our practice tests problems is administered to thousands of GMAT students in our GMAT Question Bank and is confirmed as a valid question before being considered for use in a Veritas Prep practice test.
Will I see the same question more than once?
Once you answer a question, Veritas Prep’s practice test system knows that you have answered it, and you will not see any previous questions served to you again. As long as you continue use the same account to practice using the GMAT question bank, you will never see the same question twice. You will always have the option to go back and review your performance on past tests and questions.
Can I reset my GMAT practice tests once I have completed them?
Yes, when you purchase access to the complete set of seven practice tests, you are able to reset your tests after you have completed all seven of the exams. Please note that resetting the practice tests will release all questions – including all of the questions that you have previously seen – back into the pool of eligible problems for any future practice tests that you take. Because practice tests taken after you reset will then feature some problems you have seen and solved before, your practice tests scores will tend to fluctuate more than would normally be expected.
Where do I begin if I am just getting started with my GMAT prep?
You’ve definitely come to the right place to begin your journey! In addition to signing up for our free practice test and setting up an account to make use of the Veritas Prep GMAT question bank, take a look around the rest of our site. In an effort to make sure that all prospective GMAT takers start off on the right foot, we have compiled many useful GMAT resources, including our blog (which covers everything from specific content-related questions and problem types to overall strategy and broader GMAT considerations) and a comprehensive list of everything you should know about the GMAT.
Can I get access to your practice tests without enrolling in a test prep course?
Veritas Prep offers all students the option to purchase access to six computer-adaptive GMAT practice tests (in addition to the one free test available on this page, giving students who choose to purchase access a total of seven computer-adaptive GMAT practice tests).
How do I register for the official GMAT exam?
You can find available dates and testing centers and schedule your exam on MBA.com. You will need to create an account in order to register for your exam.
How are these different from other GMAT practice tests?
Veritas Prep’s practice tests are built on a platform that employs Item Response Theory (IRT), the same system underlying the real GMAT. Unlike more basic approaches that simply count correct and incorrect responses and then generate a score, IRT recognizes that no two GMAT questions are exactly the same. What question you receive at any given point on a test will be dictated by how well you have performed up to that point, and how you answer that question will impact the platform’s estimate of your level of ability and help determine which question you see next. The system also takes “content balancing” into account, ensuring that you see a mix of question types that are representative of what you will see on the real GMAT, all while gathering as much information about your ability level and performance as possible.
What kind of data goes into these tests to make sure they’re accurate?
For one of our GMAT practice questions to even be considered for use on our practice tests, it must first be validated across thousands of responses from hundreds of students before it is added to a Veritas Prep practice exam. Veritas Prep has collected more than one million responses from tens of thousands of GMAT students, via both the GMAT Question Bank and by using experimental questions in our computer-adaptive tests (just as the real GMAT employs experimental questions to gather useful performance data). In fact, between the question bank and the experimental questions on practice tests, Veritas Prep collects more than 50,000 new responses each week! Each item is not just validated once: all questions are constantly recalibrated based on new data received from students. Veritas Prep also regularly measures our practice tests’ scores against the Official GMAT by collecting student feedback, helping to ensure that our practice exam scores are very close to those generated by the real test.
