These are not practice exams
Agoura Hills, CA (Vocus) September 14, 2010
FunnelBrain LLC today announced the launch of a new series of quick, self-assessment quizzes for students preparing for standardized tests such as the GMAT*, GRE* or SAT*. The new quizzes are designed to allow students to quickly determine whether they have the core knowledge and skills necessary to score well on the exams. The quizzes will be available free of charge on FunnelBrain beginning with a quiz of basic math tested on the GMAT.
Practice exams typically mimic actual exams to help students get comfortable with the unique styles and formats used by testing companies such as The College Board or The Graduate Management Admission Council. FunnelBrain’s new self-assessment quizzes take a different approach. The quizzes present, in straight forward, simplified form, the basic knowledge tested by the exams.
“These are not practice exams,” explained Joe DeTuno, CEO of FunnelBrain. “These are self-assessment tools to let students quickly and easily find out if they have the basic knowledge of math, grammar and vocabulary that the testing companies assume in constructing their tests. For example, the GMAT assumes you know certain geometric formulas, such as the formula for the volume of a cylinder. Rather than burying that in a complex word problem, our GMAT math quiz pulls that out and tests it directly.”
A student who struggles with a practice exam may not immediately know whether the difficulty stems from the unusual style of the exam or a lack of knowledge. “With our self-assessment quizzes, the student knows immediately whether to break out the geometry book or take another practice test,” explained DeTuno.
