Hello Everyone, 2 mo. lurker here..I was wondering about the scoring accuracy on MGMAT, PR and GMAT Prep CATS. I scored a 580 on my first MGMAT q38 v31... although I got many questions wrong..like half of the first 10 on Q and same with V and it didn't get much better for the rest of the test. If I had missed that many on a PR CAT or GMATprep CAT I'm sure I would have scored much lower.

Thanks manylander, thought I read in here somewhere that the MGMAT CATS are a bit tougher. Seems that is indeed the case. Although I missed many questions, I think the difficulty level of the questions is much greater.

I studied for 3 months , 5 days a week around 2-2.5 hours a day.
I wrote a brief summary of the whole process after the test in case you want to peek :

No question about it, especially the quant questions, which are designed to take more time than typical GMAT quant questions (e.g. too many steps to get final answer, numbers too hard to crunch w/o a calculator, etc).
The RC and CR I think are not too bad. I'm not a fan of MGMAT's note taking techniques though.
