The new test is much better than the old one. It actually tests useful Chinese as opposed to the old one that tested Chinese for crazy people and you had to study specifically for the test if you wanted any hope at the higher levels. Even native, college-educated speakers had issues with it.

The new test I feel that, while knowing what’s on it helps, someone really good Chinese could still do well going in blind.

Warning: You have to handwrite a lot on 4 and above.
