. Ya I totally agree. but I need to have a base line , so that I can see where I am heading to.
20 correct scale score is 30 ..
23 correct scale score is 40 ..( Its just a example)
other wise, I will be always wondering if scoring 26+ or above ( 41 is max) is good enough for 80 % + in verbal section
For the GMATprep app or the other prep companies, we can't know the algortihm.
BSDlover worked on some pretty interesting analysis of the GMATPrep program. You can read about it here:un-scientific-analysis-of-gmatprep-64970.html
Again, remember there are no experimental questions on any practice tests, thus the # right/# wrong can NOT correspond to what you need to score to get the same/higher score.
Obviously you're free to go about whatever strategy you feel suits you. I personally see this one as destructive, as you might focus on individual problems/banking your right:wrong ratio instead of focusing on the exam at large.
this all makes sense, but is there a way to gauge how much one is getting when practicing on non-cat exams? Is there a way to try to make out where you stand while you practice?
I mean assuming you answer all questions out of 37 in quant, what must be the threshold that you're looking at to be above 80 %tile
same goes with verbal, to have above 81 %tile or be any other %tile for that matter, how much should one target. I am not looking for a precise answer, rather a ball-park figure would do. A range is also fine and let me make it even simpler: assume no experimental question.
anyone has any answers to the above?
