Overview of the GMAT
The GMAT recently underwent some big changes. Starting February 1, 2024, the Traditional GMAT is being retired and switched to the GMAT Focus Exam.
The GMAT Focus includes 3 different sections. The exam is multiple-choice, computer-based, and computer-adaptive.
The 3 sections on the exam are:
- Data Insights: 20 Questions, 45 Minutes
- Quantitative Reasoning: 21 Questions, 45 Minutes
- Verbal Reasoning: 23 Questions, 45 Minutes
There are 64 total questions and you will have 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete the exam.
Scoring of the GMAT
The GMAT is now scored on a scale of 205-805. It used to be scored on a scale of 200-800.
All 3 sections of the exam will count towards your total scaled score. Each section is scored on the same scale:
- Data Insights: 60-90
- Quantitative Reasoning: 60-90
- Verbal Reasoning: 60-90
Every section is equally weighted towards your total score. Your section scores will be scaled to arrive at your total score (between 205 and 805).

How to Use a GMAT Practice Test
Using a practice test when studying for the GMAT is a great study method. But what is the best way to use a practice exam?
We suggest the following when using our GMAT questions:
- Initial Practice Exam: Take a practice exam in each subject area (and each question type).
- Answer Explanations: Review all answer explanations and determine which areas give you the most trouble.
- Focus on Problem Areas: Focus your studying on those problem areas until you are comfortable with the material.
- Additional Practice Exams: Take another practice exam once you feel comfortable to confirm that you comprehend the material.
Keep the following in mind when using a practice exam:
- Explanations: Our answer explanations are meant to help you better understand why an answer was incorrect. You can use the answer explanations to learn important concepts and how to solve problems quicker.
- Study Trends: Our practice questions should help you discover trends about yourself that you may not have known. You may discover that you seriously struggle with a certain type of question. You can use these trends to study in a more efficient manner.
- Time: The timing aspect of the exam always gives individuals trouble. Becoming more familiar with the questions and the way in which they are asked will help you get better with the time aspect.
Benefits of GMAT Practice Questions
There are many benefits to using GMAT questions when studying for your exam. Some benefits include:
- Becoming Comfortable With the Test Format: The GMAT, like most standardized tests, has its own unique format. As you take more and more sample tests, you will begin to see a pattern in the way the questions are written. Once the actual test day comes, you will feel comfortable and have no surprises.
- Helping Improve Your Ability to Solve Problems: Standardized tests measure your ability to solve problems, not just memorize information. To do well on the GMAT test you will need to have strong problem-solving capabilities. When answering questions, pay special attention to the answer explanations presented in your score report to help improve your problem-solving abilities.
- Improving Your Pace: Each section of the exam is timed. To do well, you need to keep a steady pace. Practice taking the sample exams in a timed format to help improve your speed and decision-making.
- Focusing Your Study Time: One of the biggest advantages to taking a practice test is learning what you are good at and what you are weak at. You can then concentrate your study time on your weakest areas.
