Need to put my practice test score in perspective [#permalink] New post 02 Oct 2005, 19:12
Hi,
I will be taking the GMAT in 15 days and I just took my first powerprep test yesterday and scored a 720. However, many questios, especially the Criticial reasoning parts were directly from the Official GMAT guide 10th edition and I kinda remembered the right answers. So I am not too sure if I should take my powerprep score to be indicative.
Also on the quant, there was not a single question on Probability, and I found the section easy in General. It will be great if someone has had a similar experience.
The last thing I want is to assume that i will score over 700 and get a rude shock. Thanks.

if you have gone through the OG, your PP score will not be representative. However, if you had the chance to practice many question types before, it does not prevent you from getting 700+

I found the practice tests to be more helpful in identifying concepts I was still struggling with and areas requiring further study than in gauging what sort of score I could expect. If you keep an error log and spend time reviewing the concepts that give you the most trouble, you will be using the practice tests in the most effective way possible.

Good luck on the GMAT!

Thanks Paul.
Do you have any other suggestions for me to practice in the next 2 weeks? SHould I take as many CATs as possible or should I just focus on revising and fine tuning at this stage?

Thanks Coffee lover freak!
EVen though I have taken the GRE before and i do have an idea of how these tests work, for some reason, am really worried about breaking the 700 mark. I will work on your advice and will hope for the best. Thanks a ton.

I usually recommend to take as many CATs as possible in the final phase; this means 1 per day.

In terms of material, I would suggest you get PR2005 version or/and Kaplan. Make sure that you get some rest the day before the test. Do not rely too much on your Kaplan score if you use that one; just work on stamina building instead since Kaplan is known to give you a score 50 to 100 points lower than your true score. However, PR2005, in my opinion, is a very good gauge of your actual score and will provide you with many probability combination problems which you don't have in PP.

Try to solve problems from this forum and actively participate if you can. You will see the benefits for yourself.
