Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Don't know what to make of the variations in score, and the last score of 740.
Have a couple of Manhattan CATs left. I find the Quant section particularly challenging, and seems to have helped quite a bit. Confused between going for the last 2 for the next 2 days, or resetting the GMATprep software.
What do you guys reckon?!
I've got them butterflies doing barrel rolls and dives in my tummy!

Well i'm not sure what your goal is, but your 740 on the last MGMAT CAT is quite encouraging. It might be worth while not taking anymore actual practice tests. A 740 doesn't just happen by mistake (unless you saw repeat questions). At this point, reinforcing topics you know, and going over your error log, or missed questions in CAT's along with questions you got right, can help you reinforce all those topics. If your goal is a 700+, and you are in that range from your practice tests, then you don't want to burn yourself out on the last 2 days, or have a poor showing on a CAT and crush your confidence. You should have VERY high confidence after a 740 CAT. Plus, MGMAT quant is considered slightly harder than the real GMAT, so it makes sense that you would be feeling that way. Keep your head up, don't burn yourself out, work some practice problems, review concepts, and keep yourself fresh for your test. On the last day before your test, definitely don't take a practice test, and don't burn yourself out.

As the updated topic states, I hit a 660, Q47, V35. An overall percentile of 81%.
Bitterly disappointed. The last Manhattan CAT had me pretty pumped and confident of a reasonable score. (At least a 700).
But now that I look back at it, my last CAT Verbal score was a bit of an outlier. 35 fits in with my performance over the rest of the tests.
After a few hours of dejection and disappointment, I've been on the GMAT Retake strategies section since morning. I'm determined to nail this. And I understand verbal CAN be increased, with smart and effective studying. What I'm concerned about though, is that I've nearly run out of material to practice with. I've completed the 10th and 12th edition of the OG. Did 4 Manhattan CATs. And did the 2 GMATPrep tests as well. While I do understand the tests can be reset, I'm wondering where I'm going to get the practice material from?
