Anyone have one low GMATPrep score right before the GMAT [#permalink] New post 22 Aug 2009, 13:16
Hey everyone,

Would any of you older guys try to enlighten me? I scored a 680 on Tuesday, a 700 on Thursday, and then popped out a 650 today? (Saturday). I think I may just be tired and need some rest. Let me know what you guys think, my test is Tuesday August 25th, again I think I just need some rest and may just try and study one hour a day for the next few days..

Thanks guys,

Ben

Hi Ben, did you go through the questions and review your errors? If you found that you made mistakes on your 650 test where you normally nail then I wouldn't worry about it too much. You may be tired and just need a rest. I was consistently scoring in the mid 600's and 1 wk before the test I popped a 490!! I was a a bit shocked but I made several stupid mistakes and I knew I was tired. I ended up with 710 in the real thing:). I would suggest you do max one test before your d-day only and make sure you still get enough rest. Hope this helps.

What test was this? The only test that can consistently evaluate your performance is GMAT Prep. Other tests may vary in difficulty from test to test (fairly typical of simulation practice tests).

Don't stress about practice scores. Rest. And then fight for every question (walker's quote) on the test day. Question by question...

Good Luck tomorrow!!!!

Completely agree with BB, only GMAT prep scores work as some indication, all other are either too tough(the great kaplans :)) or too easy.

How did you take 3 GMATprep tests? Did you reinstall? Have you had any repeats?

I did, here is my score breakdown for my 2nd attempt:

GMAT Prep 1: 700 (Q:45 V:40) - 4 days before test
GMAT Prep 2: 640 (Q:45 V:34) - 3 days before test
GMAT Prep 3: 710 (Q:45 V:41) - 2 days before test
Actual GMAT: 700 (Q:41 V:45) - August 2009

I was hoping to score higher in quant because i was consistently hitting 45 for 3 mock tests in a row.
However, I also did not expect to get a verbal score of 45 (98%) in the actual gmat because during my 1st attempt at the actual gmat 1 month earlier, i only got 38 (80+ %) for verbal

I am going through the same stage. Reached to a max of 730 , then fell to 530 and 590 respectively. I am so pissed off right now. just 4 days to my GMAt and its scary. earlier i was consistent with 650-690 ... Wrote one veretas prep...Its pathetic...score 530 in that it was so bleak that in the end i just ticked blind shots and ended it....For princton , i got 4 ques wrong in quant and got 43.. God Knows do they exist to motivate or demotivate others... Verbal couldnt concentrate on RC's and was in different state all together... I want to write a test every day & have taken complete week's leave. but somehow my concentration is fading..

I just wish this unwelcomed phase ends tonite.

Dude,
Believe me ,if you are going to write the GMAT within a week or so ,it's futile,to say the least, to write one test per day.
What you have to make sure that you maintain the momentum till the G-day and go to the test center with confidence ,otherwise you'll keep getting confused in simple questions on the real GMAT .
I think you should NOT take more than 2 tests in this week.
However,that doesn't mean that you laze around.It means pro-actively making a schedule of the different topics you need to revise and then revising them.Taking too many tests ain't gonna help you much at this stage.
Hope that helps!
