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:

  • Take a practice exam in each subject area (and each question type).
  • Review all answer explanations and determine which areas give you the most trouble.
  • Focus your studying on those problem areas until you are comfortable with the material.
  • Take another practice exam once you feel comfortable to confirm that you comprehend the material.

In addition to the above, pay attention to the following when taking our free GMAT practice test:


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
  • Learn how to solve problems quicker

Study Trends

Our practice questions should help you discover trends about yourself and your studies that you may not have known. You may discover that you seriously struggle with a certain type of question.

Try to recognize specific trends. You can use these trends to study in a more efficient manner.


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.
