Does Q43 in MGMAT CAT equal Q46 in real exam? [#permalink] New post 29 Jan 2014, 01:22
Hi all,

After finishing Math books of Manhattan as well as Bible ones, I took my first GMATprep about 2 months ago and my score was Q43.

After that, I started working on 700 level questions from this forum and analyzing answers by Bunuel. I was taking notes during reading explanations and after some days I was reviewing my notes, then after a couple of weeks I decided to take my first Manhattan CAT and I got Q41. (I know Manhattan CAT has harder quantitative questions than GMATprep)

Some guys suggested me downloading GMAT Club book and working on it, so I did. I printed the book and started studying the chapters, taking notes and then solving relative questions from GMAT Club math directory page (I solved about 10 questions including both 600 and 700 levels for every topic) according to the chapter which I`d studied before. Please consider, I`ve just finished about 70% of GMAT Club book and working on related 700 level questions.

Yesterday, I took the second Manhattan CAT and I got Q43. :(

So I have 2 questions and I hope a helpful person answers me:

1- 2 months and a half ago when I took the first GMATprep my Q score was 43 and after working on math substantially my second MGMAT CAT score became 43 again, since MGMAT CATs have more difficult questions, does it mean that my Q43 in those CATs equals for example Q45,46 in real exam?

2- I don`t know what else I should do in order to increase my score from Q43 to Q50 :roll: . I have about 70 days to the exam.

Thanks in advance,

Hi... my scores in MGMAT CAT were in the range of 42-44 and ended up with 47 in the actual exam. The best predictor of your scores is GMAT prep.

MGMAT Quant is generally a little bit harder and is more calculation based. You can try GMAT Club tests. They are extremely good.

All the best for your exam.

I've never seen above a Q45 on a MGMAT test (I took 6) and got a Q49 on the real thing.

Hi hamidmax,

I am experiencing the same thing. I work consistently on my Quant and in my Manhattan CATs I score around 42-44.
I get very discouraged to realize that after so much hard work that would only put me in around the 60%ile.

I´ll spend some weeks more reviewing and then take a practice test from a different company (or one of the Gmat Preps).

Will share my insights with you if you want.

On MGMAT CAT, I have scored Q39, 40, 41, 43, and 43.

On the GMATPrep I scored a 49. I find a lot of value from MGMAT Quant because they give you really tough problems, and if you can learn the THEORY behind those problems, then you will be able to apply them very quickly to the easier questions on the real thing.

I'll be taking my test on Tuesday, so I'll let you know which one was more indicative of my score.

Good luck!
