MGMAT CAT #2 (700 Q47 V39) [#permalink] New post 07 Jun 2008, 17:26
Just took my second MGMAT CAT today and also did the essays. Got a 700 (Q47 V39). I definitely felt the MGMAT is much harder than the GMATPrep and a few of the quant questions were pretty brutal (even if I knew how to solve them, which I didn't, it seemed like they would have taken closer to 4-5 min to solve). The verbal was better although some of the CR are very iffy and closer in reasoning to the LSAT CR. Speaking of which I started going through the LSAT book and interestingly I am finding their logical reasoning questions to be generally easier than the GMAT ones. Has anyone else experienced this? It seems like for the similar GMAT type questions, the right answer tends to stand out quite obviously from the rest (and I say this regarding most "Dificulty 5" questions as well)

My question is, how have people performed in general on the real GMAT vs practice scores in the MGMAT? Is there a correlation here? I remember reading somewhere that one can expect 20-30 points higher on the actual GMAT. If anyone has some good insight either from personal experience or that of others I would be interested in knowing.

I am preparing a retake from the 690 I got last week which I felt was below my abilities in Verbal (scored only a V36) but would not mind seeing about a point improvement in quant (from Q48) which I think is doable.

I took my first (free) MGMAT hour ago and scored 710 (M49, V37). but I can't belive that it's close to real because I made too many mistakes.

so i'm +1 with your question about correlation.

I took a MGMAT CAT last week. I missed 19 on the quant section and still received a 44. That was pretty shocking to me. I wouldn't think one could miss that many and still score in the 40s. I know overall score has nothing to do with the quantity that one gets correct, but with the caliber of the question. Still seems weird to me.

I've missed 12 on gmatprep and still scored 50. It most certainly has to do with the caliber of the questions you get right and how many you get correct in the first 10.
