Recapping my experience - TYPO in a REAL GMAT question [#permalink] New post 24 Aug 2006, 12:20
I took the GMAT yesterday and scored a 770 (49 quant, 49 verbal) after preparing for it during the past few weeks. Quite happy with my score, although I had scored consistently higher on the quant section on my 3 GMATPrep tests.

My problem is that there was a blatant typo in one of the problem solving questions on the REAL test. The question was supposed to list two proportions of sales (p and q), but instead listed p twice. This was very distracting as I had to figure out what to do (I finally just assumed the second p should have been a q). However, I lost about 5 minutes of time and became rather flustered. I obviously cannot complain about my score, but I feel that the error in the test affected my quant score negatively as I ended up running out of time on the last question.

What should I do? I have a close wording of the question written down. Who can I contact at GMAC to complain?


For anyone who cares...

I used Kaplan Premier 2007, Kaplan 800, OG Verbal books, and the GMATPrep software to prepare. I highly recommend the Official Guide and GMATPrep software, but the Kaplan books are not a quality product. Not only are they littered with typos and questions that do not have a correct answer, but their software is not an accurate predictor of performance because it does not have a true adaptive algorithm--not to mention the fact that questions are repeated through the books and software. I was not fond of the Kaplan strategies either.
