How should i analyse my free diagnostic GMAT from Knewton. [#permalink] New post 21 Feb 2010, 05:06
Hi,

I just took a free diagnostic GMAT from Knewton.

The test result is as below.

Test Information (Score / Percentile Rank)
Verbal 23 / 31%
Quantitative 38 / 55%
Total 500 / 38%

My previous gmat score is 580(Verbal - 18 and Quant -50) five months back.
I did not touch quant from last 5 months, did not even solve a single problem, Started preparing with verbal section from last 3 weeks.
Given this back ground how should i analyse my diagnostic test score.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Srini for sharing you score. i was losing my sleep to the poor scoring i had from the same test yesterday. Here is what i got:

verbal:22, quant: 44, Total: 540.
(I am targetting for anything between 650-700)

Interesting to note I had taken the PowerPrep (Powerprep are practice tests distributed by the GMAC, before 2006, and were replaced by GMAT Prep.) and scored 640.

While reviewing Kaplan's evaluation of answers I found several typo errors in that and few answers differed from what people have responded to in forums at GMATClub (yes I posted few of them here). I may be wrong but to me lot of these tests make GMAT look tougher than it really is, to lure people to buy these courses :?

Thanks fo responding, KapTeacher. With another 1 week to go for my test I am focusing on sharpening the axe to the best possible extent and will not have time to open up the test results and search. If you can wait for a while, I will get back to you (thru PM) on this.

Whenever you're ready. In the mean time, keep up the hard work, and best of luck on your test.
