from 740 in gmat prep to 650 in real life, help! [#permalink] New post 27 Sep 2011, 13:42
hey guys
so in the gmat prep exams
Gmatprep1 : 710 (v38 q 49)
Gmatprep1 : 700 (v37 q 49)(didnt finish verbal on time)
Gmatprep2 : 720(v40 q 49)
Gmatprep2 : 740(v40 q 50)

so i did the real thing today and got 650 (v 32, and q 47)

i dont know what to do, i thought i did well, in both sections, in q i got a really hard question at the end so i actually thought i was doing really well
so i dont know what to do, i dont have any more exams to practice, did the OG guide and the quant and verbal reviews edition 2, and did well on both

any advice? i am thinking about doing the exam again ASAP cause i feel confident, but still cant explain the 650.
any advice, anecdote or anything would really help

I would suggest you to take a break for a week and then go for it once again. Work more on your verbal part I would say.

i was pretty relaxed and confident. SC was "normal", i didnt notice any difference.

I am really stressed about this, doing the mgmat exams right now, i know that their quant questions arent like the real thing, but i need to do something before sitting for the exam. I like that they come with explanations.

I am sitting for the gmat again next week.

i did teh MGMAT 2 exam at work (untimed while working, i dont have time problems in the exams, so i just wanted to practice questions), coudlnt concentrate much
anyways, i got a 710, q 47 and v 40
so, mgmat quant is harder than the real thing, i have to admit (and questions werent clear enough sometimes), but still it is pretty consistent with my gmatprep exams, there isnt much volatility in each section... i do believe that i perform pretty consistent.

i am taking the exam again on thursday... i think it was a "bad day" or something
