Problem while attempting mock exam with GMAT Prep [#permalink] New post 14 Aug 2011, 00:46
When I take a test from GMAT Prep, I lose my concentration. The font does not let me stable during the test.
and that makes me score less.
I know that I don't have any escape. But still want any way to get rid of this problem.

MGMAT CAT tests I scored 670 in last three attempts.

MGMAT CAT 1 - 650 (Q47, V30)
MGMAT CAT 2 - 670 (Q47, V33)
MGMAT CAT 1 - 670 (Q45, V36)
(I was more concentrating on verbal and raised it from 30 to 36)

Then I took GMAT Prep 1 - 570 (Q45, V23)

took another test with lot of concentration and scored GMAT PREP 2 - 630 (Q48, V28).

While reviewing I analyzed that the questions those which could have been easily corrected, are wrong. Not able to see where exactly, I am.

GMATprep Verbal is tougher than MGMAT CAT Verbal.

Also, make sure you're taking the test at the appropriate screen resolution. If you're running your monitor at 1900x1200 or higher, the words are going to be microscopic.

Remember, the exam will prob be taken on a 19" screen at 1024x768 (am I right here, I' think its around there right?) if I'm not wrong.

If you're already working at these settings, than you're crap out of luck and just have to force yourself to adjust. Begin by adjusting your CAT font size to appropriately the same as expected on the GMAT (adjust browser or screen resolution).

Thanks dear for your suggestion.

GMATprep verbal is tougher but I am making mistake in areas where I am good to go.
Secondly, while revieiwing my test, I can easily figure out the correct answer.

unfortunately, screen settings are same as you suggested :(

Only way to force myself to do with this sfotware only. :)

after lot of practice, I could see my scores rising on GMAT PREP software. Today I scored 710. (Q50, V35).

Hope to see same performance on my test day i.e. tomorrow.
