Score did not improve after 4 months of studying... help. [#permalink] New post 28 Aug 2004, 15:03
I took the Cambridge CAT in April of this year and scored 590. I then attended Manhattan GMAT's 9 week course and spent the last week studying (took the week off from work). I took the Cambridge CAT again this morning and scored 590! I am a little discouraged.

I have goals of breaking the 700 barrier but that is proving to be a difficult challenge. How accurate are these computerized (non-ETS) tests?

Are the Cambridge ones the only ones you're taking? Have you taken Powerprep or Princeton Review tests? In my experience they are the most accurate predictors, so take one of them before you worry too much more. I didn't take any Cambridge ones so I don't know how reliable they are, sorry.

I feel Princeton Review and Kaplan are the two tests you should take. Princeton gives you an estimate on the higher side by about 30 and Kaplan (which has far more difficult math) gives you the lower bound by about 50-100.

Powerprep (ETS's S/w) is a good simulator, the questions on the actual GMAT are almost as easy/tough.

cycle yourself through these tests. Take a Kaplan then a Princeton. Save the powerpreps for the final two weeks. They were the best indicators for me. (+/- 10 to the actual score)

If you've studied for four weeks, take a few days break and honestly review your strengths and weaknesses. Don't bother yourself too much with the simulated tests, its the real one that counts.
