I took GMAT Prep Test #1 after a thorough review of PR Cracking the GMAT
as a basic overview of the test, since I have been out of college for a long time.
I need help in interpreting my results and suggestions for improving it.
Here is the results I got (unofficial score at the end of the downloaded CAT).
Overall Score: 680 Target: >720
Math: Raw Score - 44 --> 11/34 Incorrect (#13, 20, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30, 31, 33, 34) and 3 unanswered (ran out of time)!
I was running out of time after #25, so did not use scratch pad (no work), got stuck on #28 and had to do blind guesses for #30 through #34 and
could not answer #35, #36 & #37.
The last five (#29 through #34) were quite simple and I could solve it in less then 45 seconds each during the review.
Verbal: Raw Score - 38 --> 12/41 Incorrect (#2, 11, 12, 14, 15, 19, 21, 22, 25, 28, 32, 41) and finished before the time limit.
The break up of the incorrect answers was: 7 SC, 3 CR and 2 RC. Looks like I need to focus on SC, followed by CR.
I would like some help in interpreting my scores.
How much did I lose on Math because of 3 unanswered questions?
How much damage did the last 5 incorrects (#29 - #34) did?
For Verbal section, how do I interpret the impact of pattern of incorrects on the raw score? I need to get 42 or better!
