Princeton Test 4 - Results... [#permalink] New post 25 Jul 2006, 23:07
This is scaring this s**t out of me now.

I just gave PR Test 4, I got 5 wrong in Math, and they gave me a 44!!!!

Has any one else seen this?

Is there a way I can look up PR Test 4 results in the web site..

I tried PR (lot of hits), Princeton Review, not many because no one uses this notation..

Any ideas, on how to interpet this score...........

I am confused as well! I have just taken one of my PR tests, and after missing 9 i received a 39... while in the PowerPrep program i missed probably 12 and received a 44...

Same issue with the verbal...

you're not the solely one who encountered this situation. I took PR tests ( those from CD attached in "Cracking the GMAT") and my maths scores were lower than those in GMATprep even though i got only 4 or 5 wrong. I guess all the questions there are not counted as experimental ones. Please don't feel disheartened about this. Agree that we try simulated tests to see how well we perform, but what's more important is just that we have chance to undergo and familiarize ourself with test condition. Thus, try to do these tests as much as possible but please don't pull yourself down if the outcomes are not so good as expected.

Ok, so here's the thing with PR math - because the math questions they give you are easier than GMATPrep they (PR) require you to get a higher percentage of questions correct to get the same score. For example, I missed 5 on a PR test and scored a 47, missed 13 on a GMATPrep and scored a 48. The GMATPrep Q's were MUCH tougher. The problem with PR is that they give you much less leeway to miss a couple questions (if you miss even 1 or 2 of the first ten your going to get a score under 47-48). In my opinion PR Math is not representative of the real thing because I think trying to get 90% of relatively easy questions correct is completely different than trying to get 60-70% of really tough questions correct. Only focus on analyzing your mistakes on PR and don't worry about the score (in fact I'd say this advice generally applies to every CAT except GMATPrep).

thanks a lot for your encouraging words here..

in the last week.. I had been doing really good.. Saw a dip in Math scores across all tests(PR,veritas and 800Score), but the good thing is my english score has been increasing (fingers crossed).. So I got a bit worried of my math.. But then I took a challenge.. got 93%..

Again I saw that my challenge scores dropped from 96% to 93%.. So got me more worried.. as to why i am doing bad now in math...

I appreciate your words here..

I guess tensed now.. that i am going to give the exam the second time :(

Oh my god!Buddy, what are you thinking?!! ;) Don't you know that 93% percentile in challenge is freakingly good?!! You can tell from others' experience here that 93% is kinda representative of a 50 in quantitative section of real GMAT :) ...Anyways, good lucks to your G-day!! :)

I totally understand the trade-off you have to face when you have to focus much more on verbal and somehow ignore maths coz i underwent the same situation during the period before my G-day. Yup, it's a good plan that you practise each challenge per day till test day or you can just focus on your weak area in maths to raise your confidence. I suggest you focus more on speedy solving data sufficient problems and word problems for they are stuffs which may defeat you at best under real test pressure.

I suck at challenges badly :oops: but that's fine... I spend more time going over them and figuring out the mistakes... have no business getting 60-70% of all mistakes wrong... I guess I give up too quickly seeing some crazy-looking combination problem.

yeah the challenges have been ok for me.. pm me if you need any help on a particular problem..

i feel for the DS part, your strategy on how you solve it is very important.. after i gave my gmat, i gave a run down of my approach on quant.. its somewhere burried in the gmat forums :(

btw, do you ever sleep? i see you online all the time ;)

hell yeah... I :sleep at least 7 hours/day... otherwise I am useless...

I hate the part, when you take online challenge your status is ONLINE... people are probably thinking I am just sitting around waiting for more questions to be posted :wink:

PM doesn't work for you? how would I PM? can you ask some Adm. kinds to figure this out?

btw... I am hanging around 35-40 in quant... do you think it's possible to jump to 48? now that I seem more confident about CRs and SCs I must focus on math part...

thanks willget700+nextweek :wink:
