Need help interpreting practice test results and recommend [#permalink] New post 10 Apr 2012, 14:48
My practice test results are below. I have real GMAT scheduled in two weeks. Can someone please help plugging by weakness.

MGMAT1 - 650 (Q44; V35)
MGMAT2 - 710 (Q48; V39)
GMATPRep1 - 650 (Q49; V29)
GMATPRep1(Retake) - 760 (Q50; V42)
MGMAT3 - 710 (Q49; V37)
MGMAT4 - 710 (Q49; V38)
Kaplan Diagnostic - 770 (Q51; V43)
Kaplan 1 - 580 (Q50; V28)

While it is very clear that my weakness is in verbal, in two practice tests my verbal score was really bad. I am not sure what I need to do to make sure my verbal score does not dip too low. I have real GMAT scheduled in two weeks. Please help.

Have you been keeping track of what kind of questions you are having most trouble in? Critical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, or Sentence Correction?

Yes. Both the times when my verbal score was bad, the main reason was RC followed by CR. I did make mistakes in SC as well but they were not significant. Also time management played a big role. Second time when my verbal score was 28, I had only about 15 minutes to answer last 12 questions, forcing me to guess many questions.

With CR, I am facing two issues. When I read fast, I tend not to understand the situation clearly. And when I read slowly and try to understand clearly, I lose the focus and end up spending unnecessary time.

I studied OG12, Verbal review, Veritas , MGMAT, Kaplan On Demand for both CR and RC. When I solved CR and RC questions in Veritas and Kaplan on Demand, I did almost 85% CR and 75% RC correctly. Also Kaplan on Demand was timed as 2 minutes per question. I firmly believe that I have it in me to repeat this performance but somehow I have not been able to do so consistently. I appreciate any help you may provide.

I meant to say "Kaplan Quiz Bank" not "Kaplan On Demand"

did you take these tests in order?

We generally have a range in our test scores. An upward trajectory is ideal.

If you take the GMATPrep tests twice, you probably won't face many of the same questions the second time, but if you take them three or four times the overlap will be a little noticeable.

Yes. I have taken them in order. First I took MGMAT1 and last Kaplan 1. And you are right, while retaking GMATPRep test, I hardly found any questions repeating.
