GMAT Prep Scores & Review [#permalink] New post 18 Aug 2006, 05:56
Taken three tests in the last week and got 580 in all of them!! Pretty consistent stuff.

Last score was GMAT prep 1

Quant 39
Verbal 31
Total 580

Wanting to take the test soonish but need to get my score up to the 600 score to get into the Uni i desire.....i know it is hard to guess with all the algorithems out there ??? but how many more questions do i typically need to get to hit the 600 mark??... as in approx ..would it be 2/3 or 5/6???

Also first time i took GMAt prep and noticed that unlike Powerprep it doesnt give you the explanations ..just the answers. Is that right or am i computer challenged??!!!

Would apprecite any feedback on the two points..cheers guys and have a good weekend!!!

Number wrong doesnt mean much - its WHICH ones you got right and wrong that matters.

I started my prep with OG Math Review and Verbal Review, and then I plan to do the OG11. My reasoning was I heard the PowerPrep questsions are taken from OG11. Want to give fresh shot at PowerPrep, before doing OG11

The last 10 - 15 questions in each section ( i.e RC, CR, SC ) have been little harder than the initial ones. My strike rate have been lot better at the beginning than the end. Did anyone else experience same?

That makes sense.

What is happening is that you are getting a "medium" difficulty question early on, getting it right, getting a slightly harder question... then a slightly harder one.. As you progress, you start getting some wrong - then you get a slightly easier question (but by now you are getting "hard" questions because you already got the "medium" ones wrong), you maybe get that right, then a harder question.. so it makes sense you'd get more wrong towards the end of the exam than towards the beginning.
