I took my first gmat club quant test last week and got a score of 43. The questions were across a wide difficulty spectrum.

Just today, I took another test and got a pathetic score of 32! This time, all but 4 of the questions were at the 700 level. Does this make any sense? If I were doing so poorly, why would the algorithm continue giving me hard questions?

I'm totally dubmfounded at the GMAT club tests. I paid the money because everyone said they're really good, but now i don't know if they are reliable assessments of where i'm actually at. My exam is on october 16th, so i don't want to waste my gmat prep exams just yet.

Don't worry about the scores too much. These tests are designed to give you hell and toughen you up. The scores should be considered a secondary concern.

I realize that this reply might not be as comprehensive as you hoped. So I will ask some moderators to provide a better response on this thread quite soon.

First of all - Sorry about the scores. That was not our intention.

it is very hard to measure ones abilities objectively and even though we have made a huge move this summer to making the scores much better, they are still not perfect. The scores depend on other test takers and sometimes very skilled people skew the tests.

There are many things involved such as what subjects you know vs. what subjects are tested. There are also experimental questions and there is always the case of what questions you answer correctly/incorrectly and in what order, etc.

Most of our questions are actually 700+ questions so this is extra hard practice and that's what counts on the GMAT.

Having said all of that, if you are not satisfied with them, happy to offer a refund, just PM me or email at support@gmatclub.com. No issues with that at all. Would not want anyone to be unhappy.

Best Regards,
BB.

Gotta agree with BB here.
I scored a quant 50 on actual GMAT and my scores on the GMAT club tests were 30+. If I were you I would focus on the answer approach and go in with an open mind.

GMAT Club tests are designed in such a way that you WILL get better the more you do them. Some of the concepts such as those in probability were simply beautiful when I went through some of the solutions. Just viewing the elegance in the problem solving gave me much joy! But then I have always been a maths/analytical junkie.
