Hi guys,

I took the GMAT exam this week and got a less than expected GMAT score. I was practicing with Manhattan GMAT and 800Score practice tests and was consistently getting a verbal score between 35 and 40. I have scored as low as 32 and as high as 43 in these practice tests. I used to time my tests and almost always completed the verbal section with 1-2 minutes to spare.

On the GMAT, however, I scored 24 on the verbal section. I do not know what caused me to under perform on the exam. Is there anybody who has been through a similar experience? What did you do to improve the verbal score? What other practice tests you took? Do you know which test scores are more indicative of the actual GMAT verbal score?

Thanks!

Hi DiegoG,
I have seen that the verbal score in manhattan CAT is little above than the verbal score that one get in GMAT prep. At least i have this experience. In GMAT prep its a little 7-8 score less. I dont know is it only with me or happens with others also. However as GMAt prep is the best, its more or less that you score in the real exam. I am still to figure out how to improve based on the GMAT prep verbal score. Any suggestion is welcome and about 800 score havent taken yet so cant comment on it.

Same thing happened to me man! I got around 720 on both MGMT and GMATPrep and got a 27 on my real GMAT verbal score. Super concerned. Where can I find more realistic 600-to-800-level verbal questions?
