Congrats on the good score. To what extent did you feel the MGMAT tests were representative of what you encountered on the actual test? It looks like you scored a little bit higher on the actual test than on your highest MGMAT test. What did you do between that test and the actual GMAT? Anything?

Thanks.


If I was asked this a day before the GMAT, I would have said that the MGMAT CAT makes the Quant a lot harder than what it needs to be. But after giving the GMAT, I would say it kind of depends on how you do on the exam. The tough questions that you face after getting a few consecutively right do come close to MGMAT Quant, but the MGMAT CATs, on an average, definitely have a Quant section that is not representative of the actual GMAT. On the contrary, KAPLAN makes it a little too easy. My quant scores on last 3 Kaplan CATS: 55,53,55! That's not representative either :wink: .

I took the last MGMAT CAT around 5 days before the GMAT. In the last 4 days, I focused mostly on OG questions. As you know, the OG has around 800 problems. I had solved only 250 of those (50 x each section) in the first month, before starting with studies from other books and online resources. So those last 4 days had me solving every remaining OG problem, while circling the tough ones which I thought had something I should remember. These marked problems were looked at, a day before the exam.

I basically just wanted to make sure that the problems I saw on the last few days were as close to the real thing as possible. What better way for that than the OG?

Thats an awesome score Congrats!!!!!. Are you sure that roughly 10 RCs are there out of the 41 questions and the rest are SC and CR , because I wasnt aware of such low percentage of RC questions , I think 4 passages roughly will have 13-14 questions and CR will have another 13-14 and SC will have 15 or so.
