Great Video

I haven't heard of Vimeo being banned in any area of India. Can you view any of the videos on the Vimeo homepage (https://vimeo.com/home)?

THERE WAS SOME ISSUE WITH THE PROXY SETTING IN CHROME. IT'S RESOLVED NOW AND I CAN VIEW THE VIDEOS ON THE LAPTOP. NOT WORKING ON MOBILE THOUGH. ANYWAY THANK YOU. AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THE VIDEOS. GREAT JOB

Hi, since Vimeo cannot be played in Indonesia, do you have other alternative for watching all of these video?

Sorry, Vimeo is our only video host. The only solution I can think of is a VPN.

Is there an app to download I'd like to watch them on my phone.

We don't have an app, but our mobile site is awesome. That said, there's no option to download our videos to watch when you're offline (I don't think any test prep company has the option option of downloading its videos).

Really Nice explanation.

#Question: User can send GMAT score to 5 B Schools, selected on test day. Does this mean that user does not have to pay the application fee (which is usually 100$-250$/B-school) for those 5 schools while applying (SOP,LOR etc) to them?

No, the application fee is separate from sending your score report. So, you'll still have to pay application fees.

Are the CATs from GMAT CLUB good to practice from or are they just too hard as people say? Is it worth it?

I haven't reviewed those tests, but people on the forum have suggested that they're quite difficult.
If you're trying to get a top score, then those tests will be nice and challenging, but don't place too much emphasis on the scores you receive, since they'll probably be lower than your real score.

If you need an average score (500-600), those tests might not be right for you.

I hope that helps.

Cheers,
Brent

I need lots of practice for the quant. I am considering buying the 2018, 2017, and 2016 official guides. I already have 2019. Are the questions different each year? Do you think this is a good idea? The average score for my top school is 640 and I am nervous because I haven't done this type of math in over 15 years.

From year to year, about 15% of the questions in the Official Guide are changed. So, you will see A LOT of duplication within two Official Guides.
Also, GMAT Club has conveniently collected every question from pretty much every Official Guide ever published - https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmac-official-guides-the-master-directory-lin...
