  Preparing for the GMAT: Legal Issues, Part 2

Posted by ian on Mon 15 Sep 08 at 7:55pm

In Part I, we discussed the consequences of using illegal GMAT preparation materials. Long story short- don't do it. Still, we don't want to sound alarmist: most resources you might use for your GMAT prep are entirely legitimate. Any major publisher of GMAT books will not be engaged in illegal reproduction of real GMAT material. Most websites and established GMAT forums are also entirely legitimate. Some advice if you are preparing for your GMAT test:

-ScoreTop has relocated to a new server, and continues to attempt to operate. Their forums should be avoided absolutely;

-it is well-known that some non-English language sites continue to circulate 'live' GMAT questions, and that these sites are currently under investigation. Any site advertising 'real GMAT questions' should be avoided. Research any unfamiliar site before using it to ensure it's legitimate;

-documents known as JJs, MJJs or VJJs (said to be short for 'jungle juice' or 'jijing') contained 'live' GMAT questions. Accessing live questions violates the agreement you make with GMAC when you register for the GMAT exam, and is grounds for score cancellation. Avoid JJ documents, and any online blogs or forums that discuss their contents. Note also that these documents are not likely to be especially helpful- at least, they aren't likely to be more helpful than legitimate GMAT prep materials. According to a GMAC FAQ on, "GMAC had been following Scoretop for some time and had removed the live questions found on the site from the GMAT question bank."
