Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
In addition to the KAPLAN materials, I used the quant OG book (the one with 300 quant questions only.
So every now and then, I'd bomb a practice test, but it was usually when I took the test later in the day, or otherwise ran myself down before the test. I took the real test at 8:00 AM, when I tend to score best.
Strange, though, when I was bombing a practice test, I could tell, but I really thought I was doing pretty well on the real one, ESPECIALLY in quant. I might have missed the worst possible questions from an algorithm standpoint.
I really thought I was well-prepared (based on my practice tests) and am not sure what happened. I didn't feel so nervous that I couldn't concentrate, and I thought everything was going pretty well. My problem is that I didn't THINK that I was bombing it, which makes me wonder if I'd do any better if I retook it. On the other hand, my practice scores lead me to believe I could do better...
680 is a decent score. So if the rest of your application is strong enough
this score won't hurt you in any way. Even in the ultra-elite cluster. I, personally, would retake if I had such a score , but my GPA is a disaster so I simply wouldn't have a choice.
