I took the exam in Miami. With 10 mins left a storm knocked out power (I am NOT making this up. I wish). After waiting 30 mins with no power the proctor's announced that we could either keep waiting or reschedule to take the exam again. I waited another 30 mins and finally gave up. Who doesn't have a generator?

I am not happy.

btw, the quant section was a lot harder than the gmat prep stuff. also, very hard to gauge how i was doing. it went from really hard to really easy in the span of a question. not sure if it was an experimental. did see one quant taken from the gmatprep.

That must have been extremely frustrating. But if you thought the Q's were much tougher, then at least you'll be able to practice more for the next time around.

Can you tell us the type of questions you faced in Q and V and how far you got in V before shutdown?

quant has a lot of TRICKY questions that required a lot of calculations. i dont know. bad experience. i abhor the marker and dry erase system. those markers barely work and smudge.

Mr./Mrs. Cfamiami
this quant question that you got

a ds said something like when x is divided by 5 the remainder is 3 and when x is divided by 7 the remainder is 4. when y is divided by 5 the remainder is 3 and when y is divided by 7 the remainder is 4. x > y. which of the following MUST be a factor of x - y.


it is the same question that I got and the answer is 35
If you insist on waiting on test day, I believe your Q score will be more than 45
since I got 48 on quant and if you are very strong at verbal
your overall score can really be more than 730

chen, are you serious??? i thought i was doing really bad because i started to get some easy questions (i got that DS question wrong, btw... i knew how to do it but i was taking too much time)... at what point did you get the question? i think i got it around the middle. it could be experimental though, no?

I get that at around Q#28-30 late end
since I spend too much time on first half, I guess last 6 questions
so that's question is nearly the last question that I work on .

That has go to be the absolute worst. I would want to kill someone if I was ten minutes from the end of the test and everything was lost.

I also took the test within the last week, and I agree with you that the Q section was more difficult that the GMATprep. I was also taken aback when I got hit with an extremely easy question towards the end of the Q section. In the end, my score was within the range I was practicing, so I can only guess that the extremely hard and extremely easy questions were experimental.

I wonder if the testing algorythm takes into account the difficulty of experimental questions that it presents to you. For example, if someone gets hit with a bunch of time-consuming tough experimental questions, will the test slip in a few easy ones to balance out the time that you were forced to waste?

Again, I feel really bad for you that your test was cut off. That's a nightmare.
