Hey,

currently I am trying to prepare myself for the GMAT (sheduled for the 2nd of december)
I went through the MGMAT Quant. Strategy Guides and took two Quant. parts of CATs to get a feeling abount my quant. abilities after the work done so far:

1) 1rst Kaplan CAT --> Quant -Score = 36
2) 1rst GMATPrep --> Quant -Score = 41

My target score for the GMAT is about 650. So could you please just help me to get a feeling of my recent quant performance?
With more then two month left (one month without work) I think some improvement will be possible. So Which of the tests stated above is closer to the real GMAT?

I would be glad about any advice and / or help to interpret this performance.

Thank you very much.

BR,

belli

GMATprep is much closer to the real test because it consists of real retired test questions and uses the algorithm developed by the GMAC. In other words it is the most accurate indicator available.

Its impossible to tell whether you are on track for a 650 without knowing anything about your verbal score. The 650 is the composite score of both quant and verbal.

Did you complete the GMATprep test, or did you bypass the verbal? If you did it, what was your overall score?

With a 41 quant score, and half way decent verbal it shouldn't be hard to hit 650 with 2 months of prep. If english isn't your native language it may be tougher. Its just hard to say based on such limited information.

Thank you very much for your reply.

Actually I just did the quant part after a long working day. Just started to go through the MGMAT Verb. Guides - so in about 3 weeks I'll start taking complete CATs.

My studyplan looks like this:

MGMAT SC --> 25.09.
MGMAT CR --> 04.10.
MGMAT RC --> 16.10.

In addition to that I am doing about 10 quant. questions a day (2 from each MGMAT guide) to stay in touch with the Quant. part.

16.10. - 30.10 I'll do a lot of reviews. Going trough all the notes I took.

31.10. - 02.12. (have those days off for GMAT prep.) I'll do the CATs / error analysis / focussed studies regarding my week ereas

03. 12. GMAT

So I think in about three weeks I can tell you how my verbal performance is .

In order to get a 650 (your tarket) with a quant score of 41, you need to be aiming a verbal score of 38 (80 percentile)! Which if you are english speaking, should be reachable if you prepare yourself correctly.

I'm relatively new to this Gmat studying, but if you want my advice I definitely suggest you study the powerscore critical reasoning bible in place of the CR from manhattan. I have read both and although some same techniques are presented, the first one goes way more into depth!
For the Sentence correction on the other hand, the manhattan guide is really great !

Actually I am not a native speaker. Because of that I am aiming to raise my Quant. score up to something like 44.
I think with the time left for studying before the test I should be able to reach a quant score of 44 and get my verbal to a decent level. Currently I am struggeling on SC. RC is pretty good and CR is ok.

Thank you very much for the advice concerning CR. I'll go and get the book today.

Thats look like a very planned study plan...Stick with the basics and practice along with completed topics....

Also you may want to makes notes of whatever you have learned each day.....

Even i am studying verbal Manhattan SC, and power score CR bible....
