How Does CAT work?

During each of the two multiple-choice sections (Quantitative and Verbal) of the GMAT, the computerized testing system will select your questions from a large pool based on your responses to earlier questions of the same type. For each question type, the first question posed will be average in difficulty level. If you respond correctly to a question, the next question of that type will be more difficult; conversely, if you respond incorrectly, the next question of that type will be easier.

The earlier questions of a GMAT CAT section are crucial in determining your baseline score, so invest the necessary time to try and answer these questions correctly.
