The best scores that actually help you predict your performance are the ones from the GMATPrep tests
. The MGMAT and Kaplan
CATs are good practice -- but the scores can be misleading. The paper tests are really not useful in scoring -- a lot has changed on the GMAT since the days of the paper tests. The paper tests are solid practice though -- but don't read into their scores. A lot of the other companies have CATs -- but most of their scoring algorithms are not very accurate. For the GMATPrep -- when you register for the GMAT you will get the free CD (in case you are unable to download the free software from mba.com).
I am volunteering overseas while I am trying to study for the GMATs. Since I am in a 3rd world country the internet connection is not the best and I have had to resort to taking practice tests the old fashion way, via pencil and paper. I was wondering if anyone cant point me to a website, or explain to me, how to calculate my scores so that I know about where I stand? I have looked online and seen raw score compared to scaled score, but nothing to help me figure out "OK if I got X amount wrong this is about my score." I am aware that the GMAT is an adaptive exam but I do not have the luxury of sitting on the internet for 3 hours to take a practice CAT test. Any explanation or help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
