GMAT prep test predicatability [#permalink] New post 28 Oct 2007, 13:02
I have started preparation about 3 weeks ago and took the first full length exam today with GMAT prep software exam I. I wrote the exam completely including the 2 essays. I had to take only 1 guess so far as I remember.

My score was 670 with 12 incorrect answers in quant and 14 incorrect in verbal.

I was using all 7 MGMAT, OG and did first 3 math challenges from GMAT Club. But I have not completed the material yet.

My questions to the experts are

1. Given that this is my first full lenght exam, does this accurately reflect where I stand today?

2. I am NOT planning to review the incorrect or correct answers, so that I can treat this as a baseline score to compare against future attempts. Is this good strategy.

3. I have 2 more months to go before GMAT. Is it ok to say I have fair shot at 700+?

Thanks

Not a good strategy to not review the questions and answers. You need to know where you went wrong, and what you were doing right. You won't progress nearly as much if you don't do this. Do this for every test you take!

A 670 is a great start!

Thanks for encouragement.

What I meant was by not reviewing the wrong or right answers for this test only, i would be able to compare the future scores. Otherwise the future scores against same test wil be inflated since I already know answers.

I just read in other forum on how to reuse GMAT prep to get new questions So this is really moot now.

As a practice, I always review both right and wrong answers.

Thanks
