VeritasCAT score estimator? [#permalink] New post 10 Mar 2013, 12:34
Can anyone please let me know how the VeritasPrep CATs are compared to the real GMAT. I took a VeritasCAT and scored a 50 on the Quant section. On the GMATPrep test 4 weeks back, I scored only a 44.

It seems like the Quant on VeritasPrep would be much easier than the real GMAT?

Does the Verbal section on the VeritasPrep accurately reflect the difficulty of questions I would see on the real GMAT?

Hi gmatprep1982,

I took the VeritasPrep test during my GMAT prep and I did not find it a good indicator of my performance. If you found quant on Veritas easier than GMATPrep, then you have your answer. There are a lot of tests in the market but no one is a close second to the GMATPrep. But I am sure you must have must have put in efforts during these last 4 weeks, so it seems possible that your quant level might be around 46 - 50. I found verbal little closer to the GMAT, especially CR, but as far as I recall SC questions were shorter than the ones I faced in the actual GMAT. I suggest that you take the repeat GMATPrep test, and if you score anything above Q46, then it will show a clear improvement in your quant performance. Specifically, if you score Q50 in the repeat GMATPrep test then you may consider your performance to be around 46+. All the best !!

Hope this helps,

Vercules

Not very good indicator.. Quant tests on veritas heavily rely only on 2-3 types of questions mostly rates, fraction and percentage etc. Definitely lot easier than actual gmat and hardly adaptive (if at all). Surprisingly, If i remember correctly, I scored 50-51 in all 4 tests that i took and dint face a single probability question. I'm sure since you have taken it recently, you will be able to vouch for this pattern.

By all means best is GMAT prep for sure and then next is YetToBeBuilt !
