Guys,
I just attempted the diagnostic on knewton and scored a 660.
Q46 (4 incorrect), and V35(11 incorrect).

How accurate is this estimate? I've seen threads on this, and understand it is pretty accurate, but so has been the opinion on other tests like mgmat and kaplan.
But my scores on kaplan and mgmat have been in the range of 680-730. So which scores are a more accurate reflection of my performance. After today's test, m worried over vr im heading.

Knewton cats do not reflect your potential. Consider them just as a source of questions.

I think they have been improving it over the years and it should be much more exact these days. They had a few programs designed to reconcile the Official GMAT score with their Cats. Here is an example: get-paid-100-to-take-a-gmat-practice-test-conditions-apply-92414.html

That was indeed a very interesting offer. Not sure if some of them were duped though.
Anyways, thanks for letting me know BB. Knewton seems accurate, so i'll have to pull up my socks!

Now, with less than 20 days for my D day, wat do you think should be my approach? I'm really looking to get into that 700 bracket on my D day. Do you suggest I focus more on refreshing my concepts, or take the practice tests i'm left over with -
4 MGMAT
1 800 Score
2 Gmat Prep
1 Kaplan Cat (Not diagnostic)
1 PR (Diagnostic)

Pls advice. Score Range thus far on on Kaplan n MGMAT CATS. (660-720)

I got 590-610 on my Knewton tests and 640 on the real thing. On my first real GMAT, I got 530 and the Knewton diagnostic afterwards said 540... it's really up to you how to interpret the test.
