Test Prep Diagnostic Test Scores [#permalink] New post 04 Mar 2010, 18:37
I am 6 years out of school and plan on taking the GMAT this summer.
I had bought prep software shortly after graduating, Kaplan LSAT/GMAT/GRE 2005 Platinum edition to be specific so I dug it out and popped it in planning on going through it as a warm up for OG and the manhattan series.

I thought the diagnostic would be best if I took it cold so I gave it a shot.

I scored a 630, did have a few timing issues I think I could learn to eliminate.
All said the program scored me a Q41, V36.

My timing issues caused me to rush on a few RCs and to entirely miss one quant quesiton(wasted time remembering how to do something).

What I was wondering is whether others have used this software and what they thought a reasonable improvement target is.

My original target was 730 on the actual exam.

Is it reasonable to expect to improve 100 points through preparation?

My concern is that I don't have a whole lot of room to improve the quant (If I'm on point I shouldn't have a problem with a Q50).

What is a reasonable/average increase from initial diaganostics?

6 yrs out of school, attempted a GMAT diagnostic totally unprepared and still nailed a 630. I am sure if you work smart, and by smart, I mean getting your concepts and timing right and tight, you can easily nail a 750. Now say am your best-friend and suit-up!!!

i think it's very do-able...

i honestly believe that anybody can do really well with this exam, as long as you put your time and effort into it and go about the studying and prepping in a very strategic manner...

study with a purpose and keep your motivation high.

Thanks to both of you for the feedback, I will certainly keep my targets high and work hard on fundamentals and strategy. I'm glad to hear I'm not attempting/expecting the impossible.
