That is really impressive. I have done two Manhattan CAT exams so far: 650 for the first one and 680 for the second one.

Score for the first Prep Exam from GMAC is 700.

I've been studying since August and my test is in December. I lost one month is Oct. due to work demand. Hopefully this month, I can make it up.

Once I have exhausted all of the OG and Verbal guide SC problems, does anyone know another good source of SC problems that I can work on for additional practice?

Babyif19, did you find the verbal section of GMAT prep to be easier, the same, or harder compared to the MGMAT cat exam. I have taken a few MGMAT cat exams, but I have yet to take the GMAT prep. I have a lot to improve before I decide to take it. I am only at a 650 right now (43 quant 36 verbal)

Slingfox, did you feel that the gmatclub's math challenge provided the best and most accurate form of practice for both GMATPrep and the actual Gmat? Currently, I have been doing the MGMAT prep tests, and I have scored a 45 on the quant and 36 verbal. I would prefer a math score of 47 on the MGMAT, and I feel like the Manhattan quant is harder than GMAT prep. I havent taken a GMAT Prep recently (within the last 3 months). My goal on the actual gmat is a 49+ on the quant and 40+ on the verbal.

Excellent post by the way.

GMATPrep and the OG provide the most accurate form of practice for the actual GMAT. Given the limited number of problems in the OG and the limited number of times you can take GMATPrep, however, if you have the time to do so, the GMATClub Challenges are the best pure math problem sets out there. The challenges tend to be much harder than the actual GMAT, but I think that is a good thing because the tricky nature of the challenges will expose you to the high-level concepts and skills needed to perform well on the GMAT.

As noted in my post, the difficulty of the MGMAT varies widely from test to test. Specifically, the early MGMAT CATs are, in my opinion, much harder than the later tests. My scores on the early and later tests were somewhat similar, however, I missed a lot more problems in the early tests than the later tests, which suggests that the earlier tests are more forgiving from a scoring perspective---most likely due to the greater difficulty of the earlier tests. I agree that the MGMAT math and verbal is generally more difficult than GMATPrep. I don't think that is a bad thing, given that the GMAT seems to be getter harder over time. Notably, on test day, the reading comprehension questions seemed a lot more difficult than any I encountered on practice tests. In practice, my accuracy rate on RC was probably in the 98-99% range, so the complexity of the passages and questions on test day threw me off (i.e., I spent probably 11-12 minutes on the first RC alone!).

Hi!

How would you recommend preparing for the essays?'

For the essays, you should have a clear idea on the general structure of your response---i.e., have a clear template in mind. If you look in the AWA discussion board, there should be discussion on general templates for each of the two AWAs.

As for practice, if you plan to take a lot of practice during the 2-3 weeks before test day, I do not think you should do the full AWAs each time. Doing the AWAs burn at least one hour---that hour could probably be better utilized doing practice problems. What would make sense, however, is to spend 5-8 minutes on reading the AWA prompts and outlining in your head how you would respond. That will give you practice with outlining and thinking up ideas.
