GMAT tests [#permalink] New post 21 Aug 2012, 19:53
Hi Experts

I need your advice please
I have written the gmat prep mock test multiple times .. so the questions are all repeated
The Manattan tests are all done
I only have Kaplan and Veritas tests left I need to know which one of the 2 remaining tests are predictable
I have my test in 2 more weeks so I need to know

my scores are as below
Manhattan range - 650 - 690
Gmat prep - 680 - 700 ( too many repeated questions)
Kaplan 1 - 590 only 1 test wrote it for the heck for it - Kaplan free test on Kaplan websit

Veritas not attempted - how close are these scores to the real test

plese advice

1) which tests can I count on except gmat prep - because they were repeated
2) what tests should I work on now

Should I take the test or can I count on these scores im aiming for 700 +



Thanks

Hi ,

I think if you are aiming for 700+ and you have consumed the gmatprep and Manhattan GMAT tests , I could suggest Kaplan Tests , but mind it Kaplan is way off the track , Quant is very easy and Verbal too tough , that being said a score of 650+ should translate to 700+ on the GMAT. I would suggest you to go through quality material , which off course is OGs. When you are done with OGs you can try the new GMAT prep and check your progress. I suggest to take tests to measure your performance after working on weak areas in a particular test. You started with lets say GMAT prep and scored 650 , analyse the weak areas in that test work on it for 1 week or 10 days depending on the number of weak areas you have. Then appear for the next test. Blindly appearing for tests is not going to help much. Hope this helps

Hi,

Am not sure which tests you should take now. Probably you can try gmatclub and grockit CATs.
I agree on the progress chart part. You can try something like this

Prepare a xls sheet (topic by topic).. and keep a track of your progress on a daily basis. Use color coding (Red,Orange,Green).
Red: You are weak in theory - brush up your concepts.
Orange - Done with theory but weak in application of the concepts
Green - Done with the topic

Regarding practice:
You can practice tough questions from grockit and gmatclub
Verbal: you can try Thursdays with Ron to get a good hold on the SC part. (you can find the link in my signature)

Good Luck with your prep!
Hope it helps!

Responding to a pm:

I agree with crackHSW here. What good is appearing for tests one after the other without learning from them?
Preparation for an exam involves 2 aspects - learning and testing
You learn and then you test. From the test you realize what it is that you don't know. So you go back to the learning phase. After you are convinced that now you know your stuff, you test again and so on...
GMAT is not a rote learning based test so only testing again and again is useless. (In rote learning based tests, we repeatedly test ourselves on the same thing and hence end up committing them to memory. GMAT affords us no such luxury). You need to dive back deeply into the learning mode to hammer out those concepts.
So analyze all your tests and list out your weaknesses. Work on them properly.
If you are prepared, you will do well in all previously-not-seen tests - Veritas, MGMAT, Kaplan, GMAT prep test etc. It will not matter which one you take.
