800Score tests, Verbal section -- thoughts? [#permalink] New post 30 Jun 2013, 08:28
Hey all, I just finished my first 800Score verbal section and I was pretty surprised by their CR section. I've got the content piece of the verbal section right-- when untimed, or when I stretch my timing out, I can score really high, but I can't replicate this under pressure so I have been working on my timing by doing verbal exams by themselves. I ran out of MGMAT materials and want to save GMATPrep tests (have taken 2 already and want to take maybe 2 more of them), so I used my MGMAT discount on 800Score and tried out one of their verbal exams.

Results were shocking - score of 30... never scored this low in verbal in my life. And, going through it I had thought it was fairly easy as well.

SC: 92%tile, RC: 72%tile, CR 50%tile????

Is there something funky about their Critical Reasoning logic or is it just me? I thought a lot of their answer choices were just totally weird???? :cry:

Regarding scores and authentic material you can only trust Gmat prep and mgmat to some extent.

i have given all of them .
but i will say dont go on score what they give....i dont know what algorithm they are using.
SC==> It is not of the level of originlal GMAT EXAM...lot more SC ques still based on IDIOMS...you can make out easily.
RC==> they are good...but regarding their question quality i cant comment.
CR==>I Think they are not so bad...except for few...

finally i will say you can use this test for timing practice .....to judge yourself just see how many you got correct but dont go on their score.
dont think just move on... :wink:
