Test on Dec. 3rd... Last Minute Strategy [#permalink] New post 24 Nov 2009, 08:36
Hello All,

Just looking for some clarification and ideas on what to do over the next 10 days.

My tests:

Today - GMAT Prep - 740 M49 V41
11/9/09 - MGMAT - 710 M46 v41
10/30/09 - MGMAT- 690 M46 v38
10/21/09 - MGMAT - 610 M44 v31
10/19/09 - MGMAT - 680 M47 v35

2 questions:

what sort of studying strategies should I employ over the next 10 days? I plan on taking the other GMAT Prep test, but what else should I do, how intense?

Also, obviously my GMAT Prep score looks like an outlier, how reliable is it compared to MGMAT. I found the GMAT Prep questions to be much easier for Quant than I have MGMAT to be. Which is more indicative of the real thing? Also, the MGMAT scoring scale seemed much more leniant... which is accurate?

Hello MFINDreamer,

As GMATPrep was produced by the GMAC, *most* people find it more accurately reflects the real test and thus is most accurate to the real score.

Note: *most*, you never know what will happen on test day, so don't take it as the holy grail. Most people have reported MGMAT quant harder than the real thing.

Your quant is stable and you've seen a consistent increase in verbal. Those are very good indicators, more so since you have not repeated a test (i.e. resetting GMATPrep and seeing repeat questions).

We have an estimator tool:

With your remaining days:
Brush up on your weakness and shortcomings, get the last GMATPrep test in and MAKE SURE YOU RELAX THE DAY BEFORE. Do NOT burn out.

Also, take adequate supplies with you to the test center (banana/energy drink/power bar). Take full advantage of your breaks .

Best of luck,
