MGMAT CAT Difficulty (Later easier than earlier?) [#permalink]

Hey guys, this may be a silly question but I want to make sure my most recent score isn't a fluke since i'm taking the real gmat on the 24th.
I've taken the 6 MGMAT CAT exams with the following scores and am finally hitting the 700 mark! This is great since i've heard the MGMAT exams are harder than the real thing. I'm going to go back over the areas i've done poorly on and then take the GMAT prep in my final week. Has anyone seen any indication of the later MGMAT CAT exams being easier or is this jut my gmat parinoia kicking in? :D

I cant really comment on whether they are easier or not as you progress in taking them. But I can comment that the real GMAT CATS score ranges are in line with manhattan CATS (from personal experience).
My final Manhattan CAT was 720, I scored 700 on the real thing. Thats -20.
My friend's final Manhattan CAT was 710, he scored a 740 on the real thing. Thats +30.
I would say that you will probably fall within +/- 30 points of your best Manhattan CAT. How you handle yourself on test day can have a huge impact. Keep your nerves in check, stay focused, and dont forget what you learned. If you do this, I think you will have no problem joining the 700 club.
Gmatprep repeats also got me in the range of 650-700.I score 700 only once though.
So,I am not sure where I stand.
I won't use 'shocking' to describe a 40-50 point drop from gmatprep. Especially, if you took MGMAT CAT. It is actually pretty much in line or marginally bad. You should do well in the subsequent mocks. Good luck.
