Thats right. I have got Q49 in 2 consecutive GmatPrep v2006 tests. In the first test, I got 13 incorrect, and in the second test I got 10 incorrect.
If you feel that my Quant score is not as per GMAT standard and you feel that i should have got less than Q49, then kindly tell me how many questions does anyone generally get wrong with a Q49 score.
I did the analysis of DS questions and found that my incorrect DS questions were mainly from ratio, percentage, numbers, inequalities, algebra, stats, modulus.
Please guide me in how to get to Q50. Any recommended theory material or practice questions?
In addition, how many questions should I ideally get wrong to get to Q50?
Sorry, no idea!!! I have little to no experience with GMATPrep and my doubt was genuine. I just don't understand how these numbers are calculated. I always go by the number of questions I solve correctly and my threshold is at most 5 questions wrong. Any figure worse than that doesn't appease me. There was another reason for me to wonder: we solve 37 questions and get a score between 0 and 60. Thus, every question should carry a weightage of presumably more than 1 mark, if you answered 10 wrong; 60-10=50. Now, your score will be below 50. There is also some rule regarding answering a lower level question over a higher level question. Arrrghhh!!! It gets so confusing that unlike many students, I just overlook all that grading and just focus on the numbers of questions.
Guess someone like IanStewart or Karishma can answer this question to your satisfaction.
Regarding boosting your marks in the DS section, practice is virtue.
With 15 days left, I think you should:
MGMAT will be my first choice.

2. Solve 1000DS, because:
a. It contains real GMAT questions from the past.
b. The questions are not unrealistically difficult.
c. The questions are spread across all topics.where-can-i-find-ps-1000-ds-1000-rc-1000-etc-56141.html#p403440answers-for-1000ps-23355.html#p154511
The questions do not have detailed solutions. You will have to search through GMATClub or google to get solutions, which may be time consuming but you will surely get an excellent practice out of these.
3. Try tag search from this forum:search.php
Well!! Here you will get a mix of excellent, good, bad questions and it could be time consuming.
I would be more inclined towards the 1st option above with limited days in hand.
