Gmat Prep - Q49 [#permalink]  28 Apr 2013, 07:35
Hi friends,

Yesterday, I used the test 1 of the GMAT Prep, and my score in Quant was 49. =) I have read that the most accurate predictor of our performance is this test.

However, I noticed that I failed in 14 questions. Is that possible? Is it possible to get a 49 although I failed in 14 questions? It is important to mention that most of those questions were more difficult than most questions in the OG.

Finally, if I have gotten a good score in quant, what should be my next steps in this section?

Thanks!

Yes, it's perfectly normal. You could easily make many mistakes and still get a great score.
Go through this post to understand why: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2010/08 ... algorithm/

Next step is to maintain momentum. Keep practicing and find out why those 14 questions were wrong - review the concepts where you had trouble.

At the begining, when I saw those 14 questions that I failed, I felt depressed. But surprised when I noticed that my score was 49 in Quant. My doubt now is when I should stop. When I could say: Ok, it's enough. I am ready. I would be fine with a 49 because I think that a 50 won't increase my overall score, right? In this sense, when could I say that I am ready for a 49? PS. I expect a 40-42 in Verbal. Thanks!

PS. I expect a 40-42 in Verbal. Thanks! Yeah, that's the trouble with exams such as GMAT which don't have any defined syllabus. You always know that there is scope for improvement. You just need to take a call when you start seeing scores you like and set a date of a month later. The actual scores are usually a little lower than practice scores but a month's prep should be enough to offset it. _________________ Karishma Veritas Prep | GMAT Instructor My Blog Get started with Veritas Prep GMAT On Demand for$199
