GMATprep: How reliable is its scoring? [#permalink] New post 14 Jan 2007, 05:34
I downloaded the GMATprep software from mba.com a few months back and I finally felt that somehow I had to try it now or never, and got my score (690) and it was higher than I expected it to be, which is strange because I definitely had tougher questions on 800score (and a lower score).

I tried the score estimator but it did not have space for the GMATprep, so I would like to now how accurate you would say the GMATprep software would be.

Also, I purchased Cracking the GMAT by Princeton Review and it says (on the back cover) that I have access to four online practice tests, but the site seems to have only one practice test for me. Am I not looking in the right place?

Thanks for your time--I take the GMAT on Wednesday, and haaaaaa. I am afraid I have not been preparing for it as well as I should have been. :\

GMATPrep tests are pretty accurate.

To access the PR tests online, you need to use the DVD that came with the book. Just follow the prompts.

A common opinion (which I fully support) is that GMATprep is VERY accurate. I'd estimate real results to differ no more than 10-20 points from your prep score.

Well, I had a larger difference. Fourtunately a better one.
I did 640 and 580 (this one 2 days or so before the exam) and got 700 on the real thing.
Maybe lucky, maybe inspirational moment...

have to agree on gmat prep tests [#permalink] New post 15 Jan 2007, 03:57
I have to agree..i read that power prep (the old software) always overestimated your score..so I got really worried and did a lot of the 800score tests as well.. but in the end the gmat prep score was withing 10 points of my final score.. (i took the gmat prep the day before)

I'm ambivalent about this. My GMATPrep scores (if I recall right) were 720 and 730. Actual GMAT = 760. Also, I found the actual GMAT questions at least a notch higher than the ones on GMATPrep. Or maybe that's because I was doing well. :roll:

I'd say Precise to be honest.

I did better than GMATPrep in the real thing as well, but that's because of higher concentration I think.

No other practice CATs come close to GMATPrep in my experience...

how many can you get wrong!! [#permalink] New post 21 Jan 2007, 11:07
I just did my first Gmat prep and got 730 45Q and 46V. What gets me is that I got 19 questions wrong in the quant section and 9 wrong in the verbal, how do I still score 730 !?
