Timed preparation and corelation with performance [#permalink] New post 10 Dec 2006, 08:14
For lack of enough tests at this point, and given that I have not completed the OG yet or the 1000 series. I have started to time sets of 37 math (20 PS/17 DS) and 41 verbal (abt 15 SC, 14 RC,12 CR). The end goal of course is to get a better hit rate on each section. However, is there any way I can co-relate my performance on these sets to how I might do on the GMAT?

I have downloaded the GMAT prep but haven't done any tests on it yet. I was hoping to finish with the OG before going on to that.

Thanks

Because the GMAT is adaptive, you won't get a reliable idea of what you might score by doing timed sections. You'll know how many you're getting right and wrong, and that's a good start. I haven't actually seen anyone post this idea before. Rather clever, I must say, and better than just doing practice questions!

But I would take a practice test at least once a week during your prep so that you don't find yourself with one week left to get used to a CAT. There are plenty of good tests out there. Between the PR tests and GMATPrep, that's 6 right there. Find the older Powerprep tests and that's two more. Those three sets of the tests are the only ones I recommend; they're the most reliable for predicting your performance on test day.

Thanks yes, I agree, I did not think of that. I don't think idea is original though, comes from the advice of this forum to time everything you do...:)

Does make sense though to not leave the CAT tests till the end. Will see what I can do to find those tests.

Thanks again.
