I am just curious since a lot of people are re-taking the tests multiple times, me included.
On my 6th re-take of GMP1, I finally broke through and got a 790 (Q51, V48), but I saw too many repeats, like half of the questions on Verbal alone. I know that those scores are not a good indication of how one would do on the real thing, and I am certainly not fooled by it. I treat it more like a game at this point, which you only win all the way if you get the 800. So, I was wondering if anyone has done it and what the scores/ number of mistakes were?

no, but now that I have a lot of time on my hands after the GMAT, I may give it a whirl , moreso to ease me out of gmat mode. Tough to go from 24/7 GMAT for months and months, to nothing

I got another 790 (Q51, V49) on GMP1 yesterday. Two mistakes on each section not in the first 20 questions. Does that mean V51 is only possible with a perfect V?
This must have been the 10th time I re-took this test and I can finally say I did NOT see any new questions for a first time. Although, I had forgotten the answers to many - Q and SC in particular.
Unfortunately, it appears I've exhausted GMATPrep.....
sigh.....

Pelihu scored a 51V on the real thing (Those damn lawyers! ). Here's his debrief.

That's a real GMAT monster. Completely destroyed GMAT with his 50/51.

Wow, that's pretty insane that a 50/51 split only got him a 780.

Based on Kevincan's latest GMAT, apparently Q51/V50 gives you a 790....
And so does Q51/V49 and even Q51/V48 based on GMATPrep.....

The problem with Pel's score is that he scored a 50Q. That's only in the 95th percentile. For whatever reason the gmac does not see it fit to put something between 95th and 99th percentile for quant and therefore a score of 790 was probably not possible for Pelihu unless he reached 51Q, in which case he would in all likelihood have received the 800 score.

Yet another reason why I believe the gmat is skewed in favor of higher verbal scores.

Hi,

Yep I got a 800 score of gmatPrep during my last days of Gmat preparation with almost 75-80% repeats in Quant and Verbal. But the challenge was to make no silly mistakes. I got a perfect Q-51, V-51. No question wrong.

Unfortunately..... 10 days after, I got a dismal 680 on my real Gmat ... Now retaking the Gmat again in October mid.

Lesson learnt: My 800 score on GmatPrep wont matter if I cant get a decent score in my real Gmat.
