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:
Does it make sense. Only other aspect that I could factor in was that I had 2 mistakes in 1st 11 qs of Quant and 2 mistakes in 1st 21 qs of Verbal.
The Quant is definitely tougher that whatever you have seen. If this is close to real GMAT - I better start working on Quant all over.
Anyways whatever that means I have some problems in working the damn thing.
1. How do you go back and see the scores again. Though I copied the figures after blinking at them a few times - I would like to see them again . But cant see a way to do that.
2. How do you get the answer explanations. The help window mentions a button - but it never appears in while reviewing. I though I will just ignore the scores and get down to reviewing but am at a loss.
That seems lil out of wack. Altho I wud tend to believe whatever official score says but getting 48 after 15 mistakes doesn't seem right. In power preps, 5-6 mistakes will fetch u 48 and one can get 50 by making 1-3 mistakes. To get a 51 in quant, as per poweprep and the real thing, u shud make "no" mistakes. Also in verbal one wud get 41 with 6-7 mistakes. What did u guys get in powerprep ?
So far I've just done one PowerPrep test, and that was before studying, as a gauge. I got 690: 46 quant (7 mistakes) and 39 verbal (13 mistakes).
Kaplan tests so far were 630 and 690, though the first of those wasn't really accurate because I got interrupted midway through by friends showing up and I just randomnly guessed on the last 15 questions or so. The 690 broke down as 40 quant (9 mistakes) and 40 verbal (7 mistakes).
I'm waiting to take the second PowerPrep closer to the test date. I think the verbal scores in the practice tests in particular are low, as I made a lot of stupid and avoidable mistakes. Quant is a different story; I suck at data sufficiency. Am working on it.
If we take this as a critical reasoning qs my answer to the dilemma would be that in the GMATPrep test I had got most of my errors in the eliminated (future test qs) part.
What do you people think.
1st a simple Q.
What is the relationship between these 3.
a. All questions in OG 10 b. Questions in PowerPrep
c. Questions in Actual GMAT.
Other qs that comes to my mind are that though I have completed about 30% (combined Quant & Verbal) of the OG 11 and dont possess a Photographic memory - I could recognise a few questions in Powerprep 1 while I dont remeber doing that in GMAT Prep 1. It has also been established (saw stats in a Forum) that 60% of OG 11 is common to OG 10.
a. If you take PP 1 after doing OG 11 would it be representative of your final results - wouldnt your score be contaminated.
b. If the Qs bin for GMAT Prep 1 is not OG 11 then does it make GMAT Prep 1 more potent as in that case your scores are not contaminated (since no Common Qs)
I hope I am not confusing the whole thing but if Iam then please treat this as a Critical Reasoning Question
If you get 10-15 wrong in any section - and majority of the ones that are wrong are experimental questions - then a high score makes sense.
So, e.g. Q - 12 Total Wrong, all 9 experimental wrong means you got only 3 wrong in your quant section - 50/51 auto.
Ditto with verbal (11 experimental) _________________
PowerPrep felt closer to the real thing, IMHO, except for the boldface CR questions which were similar to GMATPrep. I found the math on GMATPrep much tougher than the math on the real test. But then, that's just my opinion.
Another godd thing about it is that one you have done thhe 2 tests - you can uninstall GMATPrep and reinstall it - viola you will have 2 more tests (with very minimal - if any, overlap with the earlier tests)
Bad thing - no explanations - but then for that you have GMAT Club
where can i get the GMATPrep from...it sounds more relevant than GMAT Powerprep which I have a CD from ETS.
