Hi rishab, you scores are awesome. I just completed Kaplan test online which they were conducing it as an event. I got only 660 (Q44 and V42). Quants was way too easy and I finished 15 min earlier. Your score are in high 700.

I got only 5 questions wrong in math and 7 questions in verbal. Please let me know is the algorithm doing something different.

Hi willneverquit,

I agree that compared to Manhattan GMAT, Kaplan's Quantitative questions were significantly easier. Regarding the score, I suspect that, as in real GMAT, rather than the absolute number of incorrect answers alone, the individual toughness of each question (that you got wrong) matters too.

I strongly suggest reading this wonderful article on how the GMAT's CAT mechanism works:

Result of Knewton free GMAT CAT (I finished it ~5 minutes back):

Overall: 760
Overall Percentile: 99
Quantitative: 49
Quantitative Percentile: 87
Verbal: 44
Verbal Percentile: 97

(I had only ~2 minutes to spare in each section. The level of difficulty of Knewton's free GMAT CAT felt about the same as of the three Kaplan CAT tests I've taken so far)

Good verbal score. their marking for Quant is pretty harsh. I guess u must be having 3-4 wrong in quant for 49?
How many you got wrong in verbal?

it happens. But you have great verbal score and good verbal score always compensates silly mistakes in the quant.

You are ready for shooting 750+..when is the date?

Great !! What is this TPR?

Gmatprep can be installed multiple times with fewer overlap of questions. Do that for sure.

Result of GMAT Paper Test 42 (I finished it ~5 minutes back):

Overall: 750

(This test wasn't done in a timed fashion, but was solved at leisure to test only raw correctness. I started this test on 10-Sep-10, but solved it in so many parts that I finished it today!)

Result of GMAT Paper Test 48 (I finished it ~5 minutes back):

Overall: 760

(This test wasn't done in a timed fashion, but was solved at leisure to test only raw correctness. Since - I believe so - correctness increases as one spends more time per question, on average, than is available on the real GMAT, this score is probably overrated)

Result of non-CAT Practice Test 1 (GMAT For Dummies, 5th Edition) (I finished it ~5 minutes back):

Quantitative: 34/37 correct
Verbal: 37/41 correct

(Was solved in an untimed fashion. The book doesn't provide a method to convert test scores to GMAT-like score. The test was easier than some of the other tests I've solved, with few tricky questions. One explanation called 51 a prime number, and this led to a nosedive in my perception of this book)

Rishab stop giving useless tests and start gmatprep or official material. Be close to official material as much as you can.

I think you're right brother. In the middle of a second test which I should've probably not taken. Upon finishing this - should take at most 30 minutes more - will move back to tests by GMAC, TPR, etc.

Thanks for the tip.
