Folks, I just received a copy of the complaint GMAC filed against the Scoretop web site and I’m posting a link here for all to see.
According to the complaint, one of the benefits of VIP membership marketed on the scoretop site was access to question sets dubbed “JJs.” JJ is an acronym for “jungle juice” or jijings.” Along with MJJs (math questions) and VJJs (verbal questions) these question sets are “actual GMAT questions that have been recontructed and reproduced on the Scoretop website.”
A lot of people have posted comments on my original story saying that the scoretop site made assurances that the questions were written by scoretop staff. That may be true, but it now seems very hard to believe that anyone with VIP access didn't know they were getting the real mccoy.
The GMAC complaint includes posts by several individuals extolling the benefits of the JJs, including this one from "h3adsh0t":
"Take [Scoretop's] VIP...[G]o through as many MJJs as you possibly can. They are invaluable. They are priceless. Let me say it again--they're inestimable...The current month's JJ's represent the questions that are most probable to appear on the exam, but they're not the only ones that may appear...I...saw 10-12 JJs [when I took the GMAT], word by word, and many of the other questions felt very familiar."
"Sammi," another scoretop poster, stated that he "got 3 successive [math] questions, of which all three were from scoretop Nov or Dec!...[T]he confidence you derive out of solving a seen problem is incomparable."
Check out the entire complaint and let us know what you think.
