I recently took two entire practice tests and these are the results:

Princeton CAT: 690 (Q 43- V42)

Veritas CAT: 650 (Q 49 - V 31)

I cannot explain such a difference between the two verbal parts. Does anyone know which is the most reliable between the two?

Thanks

I am in no position to compare the two tests (or the two scores) but I will tell you a few things about our test.

They are brand new i.e. we created them in the past few months based on the current flavor of GMAT (short but dense RC passages, meaning based SC etc).
We update our tests continuously. New questions are added often.
From the feedback we have obtained, we can see that the tests are giving accurate results. The scores obtained are close to the official scores.

Thank you for your answer. It is actually really close to my GmatPrep test: 640 (Q48; V31).

Sorry just another question: am I supposed to receive the score for the AWA part as well of my free VeritasPrep Test?

Hi there,

While I can't speak to the accuracy of the Veritas or Princeton sim tests, if you need more practice I encourage you to try a free trial of Economist GMAT Tutor which includes one adaptive sim test. Check us out here: http://gmat.economist.com.

Remember, a score can dip from one exam to another even with the same amount of knowledge ot the same percentage of correct/incorrect. The GMAT scoring algorithm takes many factors into account including where you make errors (eg making mistakes on 'graded' versus experimental questions, or the 'weight' of the question itself etc), how many mistakes you commit in a row, whether you finish both sections or leave questions out, whether the last few questions of either section seemed like they were guessed at (ie did you spend only a few seconds on the last few questions as opposed to the full time you should have), how you felt on test day - these can all affect score.

It is possible that one exam may be off just because of where you made your mistakes rather than how many. But in general, our students tend to score within about +/- 30 points or so from what they get on our tests and the GMAT test preps.

Kind regards,

Elizabeth
