Need to Understand this GMAT experience [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2006, 19:10
Hi,

I just took the GMAT yesterday and got a score of 630. My split was 30 V and 48 Q both lower than my powerprep scores..

I scored a 750( 42 V 50 Q ) and 740( 41 V 50 Q ) on powerprep1 and powerpre2 CAT. I did not do the OG exercises before taking the Powerprep tests. I did not complete the OG infact as I did not have the time.

The scored in my other tests were

Kaplan CAT1 - 650 ( 50Q 33V )
Kaplan CAT2 - 620 ( 50Q 30V )
Princeton Rv - 690 ( 45 Q 38V ) ( Taken two months back )
Princeton Rv - 660 ( 41 Q 39V ) ( Taken two months back )

Given that most people indicate that powerprep is a good estimate of the final GMAT score I am wondering how my final GMAT score could have been this far away ( 110-120 points ). Does this happen a lot ?

Also, I am retaking the GMAT is 2 months time. Any ideas on where I can get new CAT's and material.

Thanks

Vijay

Vij, have you solved 1000 RC, 1000 CR, 1000 SC?

If not, thats a good material to practice. You can find that in this forum. Search with "1000".
