Test Correct Total % Correct Mean time msec Percentile
v01 32 41 78% 109.3872 sec 1250 83%
v02 27 41 66% 109.6654 sec 1250 40%
v03 28 41 68% 109.7641 sec 1250 26%
v04 29 41 71% 109.5854 sec 1250 65%
v05 31 41 76% 102.7957 sec 1250 74%
v06 36 40 90% 100.7101 sec 1250 89%

It seems that tests #2 and 3 I must have been having a bad day or something. My GMAT Prep verbal scores for test #1 were really low. I know that some have said that the GMAT Club verbal questions seemed easier than real test, but these scores are in stark contrast with what I received on the GMAT Prep test. I also was getting about 85-90% of the OG Verbal questions right as well, which is more inline with what I am seeing above. Also, it seems strange, but it looks like the less time I take per question, the more I get right overall.

BB - Can you give us an idea of how many people have taken these tests so that we can better interpret the percentiles? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I guess verbal Gmatclub tests are new and they have less number of records as compared to the Math tests and hence the percentile score shows this much of a difference.

However your percent score (4th column) is fairly constant except for the last test.

v02 27 41 66% 109.6654 sec 1250 40%
v03 28 41 68% 109.7641 sec 1250 26%
v04 29 41 71% 109.5854 sec 1250 65%
v05 31 41 76% 102.7957 sec 1250 74%
v06 36 40 90% 100.7101 sec 1250 89%

Amolsk11 is right.
CaliCpa, don't rely on GMAT Club Tests percentiles (especially the Verbal ones) too much. It appears that v02 and v03 were taken by fewer people and these people scored on these two tests better than you did. That's it.

Thank you for the insight...

One other question I wanted to ask regarding the Club tests. I read in an earlier posting that the questions in the club quant tests are equivalent to the "700-level" questions on the GMAT. Was that the intent when they were created? The only reason I ask is because on the first test (although my %tile was low), the % I got correct was much higher than what I had expected.

The verbal tests are not the same level of difficulty as their quant counterparts. Verbal questions are much more difficult to develop.

Unfortunately, I don't know of any good resources for 700+ verbal questions.
