Is retaking GMATPrep a good idea? [#permalink] New post 14 Mar 2009, 22:58
this is my second attempt at taking the test, 620 the first time around.
I'm taking GMATPrep for the second time, repeated each test during the first preparation and although scores have improved, I am not sure how accurate it is at projecting my real score.
First time scores:
GMATPrep1: 620
GMTPrep2: 650

Second time scores:
GMATPrep1: 680
GMTPrep2: 710

Is there anyone with similar experience? If so, is it worth retaking the GMATPrep? and how accurate are my scores?

thanks,

I have a similar question. I took GMAT prep for the first time and scored 600 and 610 in tests 1 and 2 respectively. I took test 1 again after two days and scored 680. One of my friends told me that its not representative at all of true GMAT score and my score in repeat test should have been at least 700 to show any signs of improvement. Is it possible that I can still get around 650 in real GMAT in two weeks time?

It is worth until you see new questions in the test.

First attempt is pretty accurate, I guess +/- 50

as long as you see new questions coming up, you can practice on it.

Probably depends on what you hope to get out of the retakes. If it is to gauge your probable score/range, I would say it is probably not a good idea given the scores will be inflated. If it is to practice and to continue getting a feel for genuine GMAT questions/concepts, yes, very good idea.

These were the very same questions I had just a few months ago...

hope these help:
