MGMAT CAT Verbal scoring [#permalink] New post 08 Jun 2008, 15:05
How well would you all say that the verbal scores on MGMAT CAT's correlate with the actual GMAT verbal scores? It seems that a lot of people get actual GMAT verbal scores that are a bit lower than their MGMAT verbal scores.

So for example, I've gotten a verbal score of 45 on my last four MGMAT CAT's. Is it reasonable to assume that my real GMAT verbal score will be lower than that? What do you think?

Thanks for any input.

My MGMAT scores have lined up with GMATPrep for the most part. Take GMATPrep and see what you get.

Well My experience with MGMAT says that verbal is easy as compared to GPREP. Though CRs are tough (almost vague and irrelevant for GMAT), SC's are easy to fix and eliminate, RCs are overall interesting and short.

Disclamer: All the info below is what I collected from various forums on internet: mostly from expert views & opinions.

Current pattern in GMAT, as told by recent takers, says you would see 4 passages, 1 or 2 would be really long (4-5 para), depending on where you r hitting. However, maths is really tough, you wouldn't see such hard questions continuously even if you are going right because after a level, GMAT adjusts to certain difficulty level where some questions would feel hard and some easy, depending upon the topic you are comfortable with.

For me, MGMAT was way harder than both GMATPREP and the actual GMAT..

i think the MGMAT verbal is about on par with the GMAT preptests. my verbal score was steadily increasing in each of the 4 MGMAT tests i took, and went from the high 30s to about a 44 i believe on my last test. i don't necessarily believe it's easier than the actual GMAT per se, but at the same time i definitely wouldn't say it's super easy and you should expect a much lower score than what you've been scoring.

I think the MGMAT verbal section is slightly more difficult than the GMATPrep. I don't know if "slightly" is the best word to use here, bc I think the CR on MGMAT were a little dubious.
