Hey all - Total newbie question here, but I'm not sure.
Recently took the GMAT, considering re-taking.

Do you get new GMAT Prep Software (ie. the 2 tests) when you sign up for the GMAT a second time? Or is the free download of the 2 tests a one shot deal?

Sorry if this is a lame question, I just wasn't sure if when you paid your $250 again, if you received new practice CAT tests.

Thanks.

You do not get new practice CAT's when registering again, but you can always reinstall the GMATPrep Software to get 90% new questions the next time you take the CAT's.

Has anybody taken the Knewton's diagnostic test?

I somehow found their scoring algo a bit weird. I scored a 610 (Q-46, V-27) but the number of questions that I got wrong are 6 (Quant) and 10 (verbal). There were hardly 3-4 wrong answers in the first 10-15 questions.

has anybody faced such an issue.

Yes. Not personally--I haven't tried Knewton yet--but I've read about other people who missed very few questions and got lower Q/V than normal.

I just did the free Kaplan test and they were all questions from the OG! I'm not even sure if it was a CAT. Why would Kaplan repeat all the questions in its practice test from the OG? Wasted my 2 hours!

What are people's thoughts about the official GMAT Prep tests? I read they are the only ones with actual GMAT questions, but I've also heard people say that they're easier than the actual exam and don't give you a great indication of what your score will be. What do folks here think?

I did better on the Kaplan GMAT than the Petersons one. When I used the GMAT calc my score was in the Mid 600s.

Guys, what are your takes on the GMATFocus? Worth considering? Were the results consistent with what you really got in the real GMAT, just like GMATPrep?

Slightly different purpose between the two. GMAT Club Tests are heavily quant, so if you have issues with quant or want to get it up to 50 or 51, that's the tests to get.

MGMAT offer good quant and verbal practice but there are only 6 of them, so if you need some general simulation tests, these are the ones to get.

You can get gmat club tests with 200 posts and 90 days of membership; MGMAT tests come free with any MGMAT book

Hi everyone,

Just joined recently, and I'm finding this forum really helpful...

I've happened to read several posts that suggest that Kaplan CAT scores are generally lower than actual GMAT scores. Some of these post seems to be a little dated (6 months - a year ago), and I'm using the most recent (2010) Kaplan CATs. Has Kaplan scoring changed at all since these posts were written?

I scored a 630 on my first GMAT Prep. I studied my mistakes, went through the material for a couple of weeks, and today I scored 660 on a Kaplan CAT. How reflective of the real GMAT are the most recent Kaplan CATs?

I'm using the Kaplan GMAT Premier Live Online 2010 Edition.

Would appreciate your insight...

Hi. Kaplan has adjusted their scoring, so the reports of previous results are no longer valid....
In the old days, the best i got to was 640 or so (right before scoring a 750)

Thanks bb.

Are there any reports on the correlation between more recent Kaplan scores and actual GMAT scores?
I'm just trying to get a feel for how reliable and reflective the most recent Kaplan CATs are...

It's pretty close now; probably within 40 points (which is the standard error for most tests)

We do have the gmat score estimator/calculator but it is using the old algorithm.

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for and I knew I would find something like it on GMAT Club. Great. To second an opinion given by a few of the other users around the forum, CATPrep[dot]com tests are pretty worthless if you're looking for help in learning WHY you got the answers right or wrong. Their explanations, especially on the Quant section are very unclear, make large jumps in how to solve the problem, a generally come across more like some person explaining answer to you in a half-a$$ manner. My two cents. Thanks for the review of all the CATs!



Thank you for your thoughts!
P.S. I will add the link to Score Calculator to the Main discussion; we'll also update the Kaplan algorithm.
