How often have you asked yourself about reliability of preparation CAT results?
What preparation CAT is most reliable indication of your performance?

I have seen a lot of discussions and debates about reliability of different CATs, but I have never seen any statistical evidence.

I have decided to create a master file, which would contain actual GMAT scores and preparation CATs scores.
Please introduce you results in it according to ranges (see sheets) of actual GMAT score.
You must insert your prep CATs result prior to taking the actual GMAT. If you took the GMAT second time, please insert only your CAT results of the second preparation cycle.
User field is optional.

If you don't have sufficient records , for example you don't remember raw scores or number of right answers, please leave the cell blank.

In few months we will have a reliable statistical evidence, which would help us to make some conclusions about the reliability of different preparation CATs.

Please share your ideas and thoughts. Don't forget to complete the file. ;)

Actually, the GMAT Score Indicator of GMAT Club does this job pretty neatly. It assesses the value of other CATs and GMAT Prep and based on your performance under stress it gives you a potential GMAT score. You should check that out too.
