Are the "Igotanoffer" PST tests comparable in difficulty to the actual McKinsey PSTs?

I did two of the McKinsey PSTs (A and B, saving C for later) and did one from Igotanoffer. My impression is that the Igotanoffer test is a bit easier compared to the McKinsey PSTs. My impression might be biased though, because of my improvement.

Hello! Personally, having done all of them, I believe they are a very good "copy". However, test are always changing to incorporte new concepts, so they don´t become obsolete (and copied by the webpages), so don´t be surprised if the real one at the McK offices is slightly different (which doesn´t mean more difficult)

Cheers!
