Hi All,

I have seen some posts recently on people who consistently scored 700+ on MGMAT and ends up with 650- on the real thing. Check the latest post:

Do you think MGMAT scores are inflated?

The official prep tests are definitely the most accurate. All others are good practice but are not very accurate indicators. People seem to do within +/- 20-30pts of non repeated gmatpreps where as scores for the others can go 100pts either way.

I did not find that at all. Quite the opposite, in fact. The highest I ever scored on a MGMAT test was 700 - score breakdown was 640, 700, 700, 670, and I ended up with a 740 on the real thing. Their quant is more involved - more steps to each problem, which makes it more difficult to do in the time allotted - and their verbal is, well, just kind of gnarly. The SC parts are clear, but the RC and CR sections I found to be rather more opaque than the real thing. In general, I would say that it is worthwhile to do the MGMAT tests and really focus on learning from your errors - the tests do give you a real workout in concepts, particularly in quant. In terms of how you will actually score on the real test, there is no substitute for the GMATprep tests, and you should leave yourself time to go through both tests more than once.

I think MGMAT is definitely harder, especially the math.
I've taken GMATPrep and MGMAT with not much studying so far (my MGMAT classes start this sunday):

GMATPrep - 700 (Q: 46, V: 40)
MGMAT 1 - 640 (Q: 44, V: 34)

I definitely need to step up on Verbal.

Well... sometimes you are just not in a mood.

I have attempted 4 MGMAT tests and scored from 640 to 710 with average of 670-680. On GMAT prep 1, my score was 710 and I took the GMAT prep 2 a few days later with more preparation and I got a 640 which is not representative of my ability.

Someone said a few days back in another thread that no one is guaranteed to score a 700+ on a given day and I would agree with the statement to some extent. Your attitude at any given day and your mental state make a huge impact on your score - just 3-4 careless mistakes is all it takes to drag you down from 720 to 660.

Generally I found MGMAT much harder than GMAT prep but not any harder than old Power prep tests.

Thanks
