Gmatprep is not representative?? [#permalink] New post 06 Aug 2007, 23:41
hey everybody,

i gave gmatprep(1st test) 2 days ago and got a 730(50q,38v)..... and i think that the scores reported may not be representative. :shock:

while i have encountered contless posts about the accuracy of gmatprep scores, i have also read that gmatprep does not contain repeated questions.......

but in my case, while the quant questions were new, verbal questions were repeated.......
sample this :
out of 11 cr questions, 7 cr were already seen by me(either in OG, or 1000cr or in SETS)......
1 sc was from 1000sc
and 1 rc(4 ques) was from 1000 rc.........

moreover, i think that the algo is also a bit inflated.......... i made 8 mistakes in quant and still managed a 50...... :? this seems odd to me......

whereas quant is not a major concern, getting repeats in verbal is a concern when i think that GMATPREP is not representative and thus, i dont have anything to benchmark my score........ :x

can anyone pls suggest what should be done in such a situation 2 know where m i standing??

man,at the scores you are getting 700 should be well below your range.But to be on the same side try kaplan and Manhattan tests:they usually give lower scores and are harder but not representative of the Actual Gmat.As you must have heard from other people Gmatprep and powerprep are the most accurate estimators of your actual score.





Just my thoughts.

I second trahul's reco...take a MGMAT practice CAT if you have the time. Personally, I didn't see any repeat Qs when I took GMAT Prep 1. To be honest I actually did worse on the GMAT Prep than on MGMAT 740 v 770. It may have been a bad day, but I thought the verbal was different, a bit harder than that found in MGMAT. Also, don't get hung up on your score, you are obviously doing well...and should score above a 700. Focus on the questions you missed and if you want retake the test...there is a post from a couple of days ago that has a link to one of Rhyme's posts. It describes how to take multiple tests using GMAT Prep while saving the old test files. G'luck, let us know how the test goes.

what do you have planned? I'm curious as to why you don't have time for MGMAT CATs if you still have one month left...
