How to use Prep4GMAT app analytics to get your best GMAT score

While thousands of questions and customizable test length are pretty great features, the Prep4GMAT app would be virtually useless without comprehensive analytics. The best GMAT test-takers know that there’s an enormous amount of strategy involved in GMAT prep, and our analytics are designed to help you drill down on your strengths and weaknesses on a single dashboard.

The Home screen allows students to see their predicted GMAT score. Our content editors reference past GMAT exams and data from the GMAT to help them choose the difficulty of each question. We also make sure that the question’s difficulty level matches up with the percent of users who answer the question correctly.

The Home screen also allows you to see how long you’ve been using the app. Since most GMAT test-takers spend more than 25 hours studying for the GMAT, this user has quite a lot of practicing to do.

When the user taps the Analytics page, we can see the percent answered correctly as well as the percent answered correctly in each question category. This particular user seems to particularly struggle with critical reasoning and sentence correction.

If the user wants to understand why they’re struggling with sentence correction, they can tap on the sentence correction progress bar. This will show them a Topic Breakdown for each of the 12 sentence correction topics. Here we see that this user is a bit stronger with verb tenses, but that they particularly struggle with comparisons. If the user taps the progress bar for any of the topics, the app will take them straight to the relevant lesson.

Lastly, the user can view their Areas for Improvement, which is an automatically generated list of the categories with the lowest accuracy rating. One benefit to the Areas for Improvement screen is that users can see how many questions they’ve answered in each category. In this user’s case, categories like square roots will probably even out when they answer a few more questions.

In our last post, we talked about the label study method, and the analytics are an example of yet another way in which the Prep4GMAT allows users to drill down on GMAT content. The more comprehensive the analytics, the better the user can see their progress over the GMAT prep process.
