Hey bb,

Any thoughts on the accuracy of PR, I've been getting 700 on my MGMAT scores, a 660 on Kaplan (which is really more like a 700 in the real GMAT), and for the Practice GMAT online for Princeton, I got 640. Is this score understated?

I've seen some threads where they talked about the scoring is very similar to Kaplan, so a score below 700 should not be alarming. Even though the GMAT predictor says that 640 is very close to the real thing.

Thanks.

Not very familiar with PR test scoring. Been a while.
Try the GMAT Score Calculator; that's the best suggestion I have.

Hi guys,
Thanks for creating this great website, I just randomly found it and I trying to prepare for my GMAT, really just started ...not sure where to start :)
Anyway you are using some acronym here such as "CAT", what does that stand for?
Thanks

CAT - Computer Adaptive Test. Means that the computer gives you the next question of difficulty level based on the fact whether you correctly answered the current question. If yes, next question will be of higher assigned difficulty, if no - an easier one. CAT is different in that regard from paper-based test, where all questions are put on paper in advance. Another difference from the paper-based tests is that in CAT you cannot come back to a question later, whereas in paper tests you can skip some questions and then come back later to try to crack them. As far as GMAT goes, I think they have (almost) eliminated paper-based tests.

my kaplan premier 2010-2011 book with cd says it comes with 6 full-length practice tests. 1 is on paper in the book. 5 are available online or through cd. are all 5 of these cat's? the first post of this thread suggests that there are only 4 cat's that come with the book and another poster mentioned that the first online/cd test is not a cat. however, i believe the amazon review by gmatclub founder bb states 5 cat's. so are there really 4 cat's or 5 cat's with the kaplan premier book?

Here is how it should be: 6 full-length tests (2 online and 4 in the book per book's back cover)
There are 5 CAT's
  • 4 on the CD
  • 1 online
1 Non-CAT paper test (at the end of the book)

However, in reality you have a choice between Online and CD (perhaps a bug): I am getting offered 5 online tests instead of 1 or 2 as the book says and here is how it is:
  • 4 on the CD (verified)
  • 5 online (verified)
1 Non-CAT paper test (at the end of the book) - verified

There are 6 full-length tests
There are 5 CAT's
  • 3 on the CD (I am verifying this part)
  • 2 online
1 Non-CAT paper test


I think the 2010-2011 version lets you choose to take all of the 5-non-paper tests either on cd or online. i assume all the tests on the cd are the same as those online. however, other users are reporting that the first non-paper test is NOT a CAT:

Hi!

I just purchased the Kaplan 2010-2011 Premier, basically only for the included Tests. I just started the Practice Test 2 online (the first one is referred to be the paper test in the book). I only completed the Quant section so far and paused it.
What really surprised me was that it was really, really easy! No real hard question and no advanced concepts. Before, I read that the Kaplan tests are known to be extremely difficult. Before, I did 4 Manhattan GMAT tests, which were much harder.
Does anyone know what's behind this? Are the Kaplan Test on the Cd, the Test which are really hard and the online tests are used to train you from low level to later harder level (maybe practice test 6 is harder)???


TobiasSch wrote:
So in the meantime I completed the test, my result:

Overall: 650
Overall Percentage: 83%

Quant: 44
Quant %: 93%

Verbal: 39
Verbal %: 89%

Quant: 86% of Questions right
Verbal: 73% of Questions right

I'm quite confused. First of all the are the score a bit inconsitent with what I know/expect from the GMAT scoring. a quant score of 44 = 93%??? normally you need something around 49 to be in 93% as far as I know?
Additionally, Quant % of 93 + Verbal % of 89% equals overall 83%??? Normally as far as I know, if you score about the same % in each section, you should be in a higher % overall?!

Also for the verbal part, I was quite shocked how (relatively) easy the Questions were.

Of course, the overall score of 650 is not great, but I heard that you can easily add 100 point on that.
Anyway, I don't know how to interpret this score.... I still found the Q's quite easy and would expect the real Q's to get more difficult.

Does anyone have similar experiences? Did I maybe picked a practice exam which was made up only of easy questions for people who just started preparation? How comparable is the difficulty of the Kaplan Questions itself to the real questions?

BTW, I am aiming for a score of ~730 (Q:90%; V:70-80%)

Any input would be highly appreciated :-)

Thanks,
Tobias


edit: okay, I just learned, that this test was an linear test and no CAT test... good that this is only told, once you review your score ;-) not sure though if the linear test is in any way representative for a CAT test?


TobiasSch reports that the first non-paper test was a LINEAR scoring, and not a CAT. Can anyone else verify? Or someone from Kaplan comment on this?

See my reply to you.
There are 5 tests online but 6 are listed (which is confusing since the first one is just a reference to the book test).
You can also contact Kaplan directly at booksupport@kaplan.com

I think the 1st of the 5 tests online is NOT a CAT. I guess I can confirm in a few weeks when I take it, if no one else wants to...

You know what's funny? The back of the book says "6 full-length practice tests (4 in the book, 2 online)". Obviously incorrect, whatever the breakdown of tests is.

I have not yet taken GMAT Prep, but this is what I have concluding by reading the posts by other people:

-If you take it twice, there is a very small chance of repeated questions. (~1-2 per section max.)
-If you take it 3+ times, you will most likely see repeat questions, but you will also see new ones. (Maybe 25% repeat / 75% new, depending on how many times?)

To people who have taken GMAT Prep multiple times, does this sound accurate?

It has more than a thousand questions but the chances after the second time are that you will see a few/quite a few depending on your level/answers, so i would not even consider those scores.

Is there a thread for solutions/questions that come out specifically of the GMATPrep tests?
I took my first GMATPrep test and I am reviewing wrong answers, but unfortunately the software doesnt provide explanations and in many cases I dont know how they got to the right answer.
Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Here is a link to a thread with supposedly all SC questions and answers (no explanations) extracted from GMAT Prep: extracting-all-the-questions-from-gmat-prep-93555.html

As far as I know I don't think anyone has done this for any of the other question types.

What's the opinion on McGraw Hill's practice tests? I read some posts earlier that said the book isn't very helpful, but what about the tests that come on the CD?

I have "McGraw-Hill 2008 Edition GMAT" and "McGraw-Hill Conquering GMAT Verbal and Writing."

I did a practice test on the CD that came with McGraw-Hill 2008 Edition GMAT and scored a 660. Is that test computer adaptive? Or is it simply just questions by order (so my actual score on the GMAT would be much lower than 660?)

Thanks for your help!
