How do the Cracking the GMAT CAT's compare to the real thing? If there is a prior post discussing this, just let me know.

If there is a prior post discussing this, just let me know. Hi JAllen, [edit: it seems that I am not talking about the same CAT, but what i say still stands,, don't look too much into it. Even KevinCan got a low score on that test] ------------------------------------------------------------------------ i did the free PR test ages ago (in January). It was about a month before my actual GMAT and I scored 690 in the test (from memory it was a Q45 V41 split). Now there interesting thing was that I only got 4-5 wrong in the quant, which i felt was way too easy, which indicates that their scoring algorithm is flawed to say the least. I have heard from other clubbers that its a good test to gauge verbal ability (but again their scoring will be flawed) since verbal questions (especially SC) are more inline with what we are used to. I read your earlier post regaring your experience. If I were you, I'd disregard that score and continue as you are. You seem to be posting some good stuff that indicates you are on the right track! Use these CATS to get used to 4 hours in that g-chair and pacing etc, but don't dwell too much on scores. -buff Last edited by buffdaddy on 17 Jun 2008, 06:29, edited 1 time in total.

I think one of the mistakes I made was that I took it pretty late at night and wasn't able to focus very well on the verbal. I've been really busy with some other stuff as well (programming a website for a client that is starting to spiral into something way bigger than I ever thought it would become.) In addition to all the other normal things everyone has (family, work, social life, sleep!). I'm going to take a week's break from the forums here (at least at night...I still visit during work hours to break up the work day from my dull job.) I'm going to hit the OG books (I have all 3) very hard and finish up those questions. I'm going to retake the GMAT in mid-july. As for the 4 hours in the chair, I'm not worried about that. During law school I got used to long tests (most were 3 hours, a few were 2) of nothing but writing by hand. The thing is I never started those tests at 8:30 p.m.! Thanks again for the encouragement. KEVINCAN - thanks for letting me know I'm not alone and I an view this score as an anomaly. _________________ ------------------------------------ J Allen Morris **I'm pretty sure I'm right, but then again, I'm just a guy with his head up his a$$.

In my experience the PR CATs were very close to the real GMAT.
