scoring around 700 in princeton review's mock tests [#permalink] New post 16 Jul 2012, 08:21
Hi,

I have my GMAT test scheduled in a week and in the Princeton Review's mock tests am scoring ~700 (~37-V and 51-Q). Would be great if you can let me know around what score I can expect in the actual GMAT test.

Thanks a lot!

Assuming that one practices under realistic test conditions, then multiple scores of 700 with any practice test should probably be seen as a good sign. With that said, Princeton products are more suitable as a refresher or for those whose target score is around 600. The questions are easier than those found on Manhattan or Kaplan tests, and the scoring algorithm is a bit off.

I strongly advise you to use the GMATPrep software to have a better idea of where you stand.

From my experience . I'd say the scoring algorithm of the Princeton review CATs is a bit strange ; in one of the CATs that I took I scored a 46 in quant despite getting just 2 questions wrong ( question number 18 and 31) . Also the questions don't seem to resemble the gmatprep questions ; in SC , I remember quite a few questions were based purely on idioms , which as you know are slowly getting phased out .

In summary , I'd recommend that you stick to the gmatprep tests .

Hi Rakesh,
In my experience too the princetonreview marking algorithm is a bit strange, my marks have varied quite a lot (from 660~740) in these tests by only small difference in number of mistakes.

Hey Rakesh

We can't comment for other tests but do note that no test prep company's algorithm will exactly match the real thing. The best we can do is get close.

In terms of our scoring, many of our students report scores that are +/- 30 points from their actual GMAT test and so are a relatively good indicator of their performance. That said, no practice test can perfectly replicate the actual score algorithm, but this is quite close.
