The CAT exams are active for one year beginning the date of your purchase. Access instructions will be e-mailed to you after checkout.
Please note that this resource is included with the purchase of any of the Manhattan Strategy Guides or Prep Courses. If you later decide to purchase Strategy Guides of equal or greater value, or upgrade to a Prep Course, Manhattan will apply a credit for the retail value of your 1 Year Practice Exam Access.
All of the Manhattan exams are delivered across the internet; there is nothing to install or download. Manhattan explicitly support the Internet Explorer web browser, though most other browsers work as well. The computer adaptive system that is the backbone of these exams mimics the behavior of a real GMAT, so the difficulty level of questions fluctuates based on your performance.
The Manhattan scoring algorithm is carefully calibrated and continually refined by comparing students’ scores on Manhattan GMAT’s practice exams with their results on Official GMAT exams. Manhattan’s aim is to provide you with the most realistic test-taking experience possible. Please note that the essay section is not scored.
At the end of each exam, you will be provided with an in-depth review: explanations to each question, time spent on each question, approximate difficulty level of each question, the topic(s) tested by each question, and more. The Manhattan sophisticated reports enable you to gauge your ability and focus on your strengths and weaknesses.
You can take the exams timed or untimed. Set the time by section (e.g., 75 minutes for an entire section), by question (e.g., 120 seconds per question) or without a time limit
Optional Exam Reset
After completing all 6 exams, you may reset the question pool and take additional practice tests. The work you have completed in the previous 6 exams will still appear in your Student Center. Keep in mind, though, you will see repeat questions the second time through your CAT exams, so your overall score will be less accurate.
