Test Evaluation (MGMAT & Kaplan) [#permalink] New post 26 Jan 2010, 22:43
I took 3 online Kaplan Practice Tests. But the scores in the last 2 look very, very inflated. Results given below:

Test 1: Q: 35 right & 2 wrong. Score 43; V: 36 right & 5 wrong. Score 36; Overall Score: 710
Test 2: Q: 32 right & 5 wrong. Score 54; V: 32 right & 9 wrong. Score 47; Overall Score: 760
Test 3: Q: 33 right & 4 wrong. Score 53; V: 33 right & 8 wrong. Score 47; Overall Score: 760

Is it some kind of system-error???

I also took the MGMAT Free Practice Test. One problem I faced was of course the time pressure (while i typically fall short by 2 to 3 Qs in Verbal in most of the tests; here fell short by 5 to 6 Qs even in Quant - which is a bit unexpected). Another fact was that the % of 700 - 800 Qs in the entire test was very high (almost like 28 in Q and 30 in V). And finally, even after getting 11 questions wrong in Quant and 16 in Verbal, I managed an overall score of 650. That's pretty strange....

Comments from you regd the above would certainly help in my self-evaluation. Thanks.

Hm... Kaplan does look very high. That's unusual and won't give you correct results with Score Estimator: http://gmatclub.com/gmat-score-estimate/

You obviously know about GMAT Prep - it is the most reliable predictor of GMAT.
