Took a MGMAT this morning and tried to simulate test conditions. Didn't write an actual AWA, but I wrote a few paragraphs and waited the whole hour so I could get used to the actual test length. Woke up at 7am and went to my apartment's computer lab to take it. It was pretty distracting because people were walking in and out all morning.
This test was really hard. I felt like most of the math questions I didn't know how to do and I guessed on quite a few of them. The verbal I felt I did decent. I haven't taken the time to analyze my mistakes yet, but when I saw my score, I was shocked. I thought I scored well under 600 because the math portion was so hard. I know that it's a good sign when the math is hard, but I recognized many of the problem types and I just did not know how to do them.
I did improve my verbal, and I attribute my improvement to watching the MGMAT class
recordings and really just concentrating and focusing.
Exponents and manipulating equations (x in terms of y) are where I really struggle. I'm glad I got the score I did, but I'm not at the confidence level where I can do this well on the actual exam.
Q: 19 correct/18 incorrect. Towards the middle of the exam, I missed 5 questions in a row (600-700 and 700-800 before it went down to 500-600 which I got correct)
V: 25 correct/16 incorrect. Missed 5 in a row of 700-800 questions in the beginning of the test.
