Question about knewton's free test [#permalink] New post 02 Jun 2011, 00:21
Hi...I took the knewton's free test and scored 670 / 89%. How accurate these scores are.

1. Only one question (No 3) was incorrect but still i got 47 / 77%. Can some one help me to understand how it works. Doest it mean
you should not make any mistake? i completed the section in 58 mins.
Also the quants section was easy compared to other tests (e.g Free test of manhattan gmat).

2. Verbal (34 / 68%) 11 questions were incorrect ( 7 in RC and 4 in SC). I think with some more practice i can improve in SC....
Is there anyway to improve the Reading comprehension....

I have only 1 more month for my test date. Any help for RC is appreciated as i'm struggling too much on it.

even i felt that knewton's test scoring methodology was not up to the mark.

So may be its just for practice purpose to practice on additional question sets. However i did not feel very positive about the kind of questions appearing in Q, if they truly reflect GMAT style.
there was one Q like..

2 3 4 5
1 -10 1... and so on 50 numbers and it was asking to add all the numbers.

I am not sure if these kind of questions appear in real GMAT.

For RC, i have seen people saying here about reading the economist.
And may be you can find out if you analyze some of your stats on RC general vs. RC specific and focus on them more. Another way is to find on what kind of RCs you make most mistakes.. for me its some political issue always.. i dont get interest reading those passage.
