The point of MGMAT CAT Verbal section? [#permalink] New post 01 Dec 2010, 17:40
I consider myself to be pretty strong in verbal part of GMAT. On GMAT PREP, my scores were over 40. On Kaplan, 43. Knewton, 41. Veritas, 43. On MGMAT, i am constantly stuck on 35. It is beyond me why they make each CR and most RC answers in a way that 2 to 3 of them are possible options. I know that GMAT usually requires you to go one point beyond the passage, and these questions, and answers are pretty straight-forward. MGMAT CAT seems to ask us to go even further, blurring the answers. What is the point of this? To make us tougher?
Or is it just me and these MGMAT CATs are truly as easy as GMAT PREP?

That is strange, I have a 39/40 on MGMAT verbal and therefore I thought that I would be 40+ on GMATprep but I got 35 and 38.
I seemed to do quite well on the GMATprep as well, I think I got the first 13/14 right both times.

Kaplan verbal tests are a little bit too easy in my opinion... do not know about the others yet...
It is true that there are some ambiguous choices on MGMAT... not sure wether it helps you improve or not

The word is that Kaplans are actually harder... Not sure, it just seems that MGMAT offers some answers on Verbal that are debatable, to say at least.

You find that Kaplan verbal question are harder than MGMAT's ? hmm... I guess it must depend on the test taker as I was feeling the opposite.

No, I personally find MGMAT to have the toughest verbal section, due to blurry answers. Kaplan was easy, but most people here seem to see it as hard, and the score estimator estimates your actual score to be some 20-30 points over Kaplan's, which indicates their toughness when it comes to scoring.
