GmatPrep software error [#permalink] New post 24 Nov 2005, 06:12
I am having a lot of problems with Gmatprep. The fact is that the questions I see in the review don't match the questions I did in the test. Once I got 11 wrong questions in a row. I was really surprised!!. When I review them I saw none of them was in the test.

Do you guys have the same problem? Is there a new version of the software fixing this error?

Hi automan,

Do you mean Power Prep? If yes, I have no problem with this software. BTW, what is the source of this software?

Regards,

Yes. I faced the same problem when I did my GMATPREP test.

Same Problem [#permalink] New post 31 Dec 2005, 10:04
I just had the same problem. Really annoyed because I am supposed to be taking my test in one week and would like an accurate indicator of my real score. The first GMATPrep I took did not give me this problem - 640 score with questions in review screen matching questions that I answered during the test. This score said 590 so I was obviously upset...but then noticed that I got 32 out of 40 wrong in Verbal since the questions don't match the questions I saw in the exam...

Hi guys

I just did GMATPrep 1 & 2 and did not seem to have any problems with it. Th e ques in the tset and the review match. But I find one thing very annoying .. the review screen only tells you which choice is the correct one but there is no explanation (or is there?) I have looked everywhere and can't find any explanations for the questions. Are there any explanations?

I'm giving my test next week and aiming for 730+. I got 700 in both attempts GMATPrep 1 & 2 (Quant 47 verbal 40 and Quant 50 Verbal 39). do you think GMATPrep is lenient compared to the real test?

Cheers
eskay

I also noticed bugs in GMATPrep, and my two consecutive scores were different by 100 points!.

I not only found that software was showing grading against wrong questions, but some problems also seem real fishy!

I just took the second test, got 730, then when I returned to review the questions, GMATPrep suddenly changed the questions! Now it shows 30/41 wrong in quant and a lot wrong in verbal! Adding insult to injury, I can't even see my original questions!

This is extra annoying since this is my last test before my gmat on friday :evil:

Bugs in GMAT Prep [#permalink] New post 23 May 2006, 04:48
I had the same problem. I took the test and in the review it showed that I had 25 out 37 wrong in Quant and 31 out of 41 in verbal.
You cannot go back and review the questions, they were all different.

It showed me a score though of 630 which I seriously doubted. How accurate is this GMAT Prep if it has these bugs?

Anyone have any insight?

Sure hope this does not happen on test day.

I only had 17 questions wrong in Quant (which I think is also bogus) and 16 wrong in Verbal. And they gave me a 620. T___T Have no idea how that happened.
