Hello,

I have taken the practice test in GMATPrep and went from 730 (Q-48, V-42) to 700 (Q -49 , V 35 ). Has anyone noticed a big difference between the test? I am especially concerned about the verbal (12 questions wrong vs 9 question wrong before) . I am aiming for >= 700 and I am taking the test on Friday. Any feedback especially on how the two GMATPrep test compare to each other and to the real GMAT?

Thanks!

The tests are no different. The questions are all dependent on how well you do on each previous question. In my opinion you are right on target with the math score and in verbal, well, you are probably somewhere within that range. Verbal is about staying focused.

I got a 670 (GMAT Prep 1) and 710 (GMAT Prep 2) and a 710 on the real thing. You were probably a tad more focused on 1 vs 2 hence your score. Like someone else said, you're right on track. Good luck.

Thanks for the encouragement guys! What do you suggest before the test Friday? In my last verbal, I did really bad on the SC but I am usually at least a 50-60% on the harder SC OG questions. On the GMATPrep 2, I did something like 20%... I am planning to work on SC until the test but should I try to retake a GMATPrep even with similar questions? Is that worth the time?

Thanks!

I did noticeably worse on SC on GMATP2 vs. 1, but ended up w/ 730 overall for both. I really think concentration has a lot to do with it. For example, when my confidence was getting too high, I started to listen to my ear more instead of really analyzing and identifying the reasons why each answer choice were wrong. This is obviously a no-no, except for idioms, but is easy to do when you are pressed for time or over-confident and "lazy" or sloppy.

I think I got a 710 on the first and a 730 or 740 on the second. I felt the that my score fit right in between those scores. On test day I scored a 710, but could have probably scored 720 or 730 if taken a week later. I think you are right on track for a 700+ especially if you did not have a lot of repeat questions.
