hey,

are the MGMAT CATs overstating performance?
I recently finished first MGMAT CAT and scored overall a 710.

I know it's not directly possible to derive scores from false/correct ratios BUT
- i scored only 19 / 37 of Quant correct but received a 44 score (73%) in Quant

I believe it should be easier to practise on your quant skills. What helped for your score are your outstanding verbal results (anything >40 is truely outstanding to me ). I have no GMAT experience thus far, but I believe the MGMAT scores. From what Ive read your real score (if you took the test today) should be somewhere in between 680 and 720. Have you tried the real GMAT prep test already?

I think so as well (being a quant guy after all). However when I look at my GMAT prep result and my MGMAT result it did not seem to matter much, as both resulted in a score somewhere within a range of 46-48. So probably it is possible to get some more questions wrong in the MGMAT and still get the same score as in the GMAT prep. Looking at your scores I think we are pretty similar in our skill levels as well. I did my MGMAT with a score of 680 and my GMAT prep with 690. I would therefore estimate my real GMAT score right now somewhere between 670-690, which I would estimate for you a little bit better right now.
