The GMAT practice test will allow you to evaluate your current GMAT level. The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) section is not included because of the specific way it is evaluated. You will need about three hours to complete the test and we recommend that you complete the test in one sitting in order to accurately replicate actual exam conditions. Remember, the use of dictionaries is strictly prohibited on the GMAT and the use of a calculator is authorized during the Integrated Reasoning section only.

Other free practice tests will be available on PrepAdviser soon.
