Alright, thanks.
And what about answers? Do they have answers and explanations?

I assume they give you a breakdown of your performance in various categories?

Yea the explanations and analysis are given just took it 2 days ago. But i see that the questions have been reviewed in 2010 so its pretty old stuffs but they did help pin point my weaknesses

The tests are good to evaluate your resistance to very long tests... but the questions are really old like 2010.... can be useful if you wanna know your weakest areas and the information that you thought that you knew but you have forgotten at this time... all the questions have a feedback and each block has 46 questions... but the results are not predictive to the real score... I think that overestimates the real score..
