Please help me out! I took the GMAT on 26th october 2010 and a shocking 650 (Q47 and V32). I have been getting 740-770(Q50 and V40+ always) on GMATPREP. I took 3 Manhattan CAT"S got : 710 (Q48 V 38) 690(Q48 V36) 720(Q48 V40). 4 Knewton
CAT's ( 770 (Q49 V47) 700 (Q48 V38) 730 (Q49 V40) and 770 (Q 49 V48).
In none of the tests I got less than a 700 except for the Manhattan CAT, whose verbal especially CR is very different from actual GMAT and whose RC questions are not as crystal clear as those in GMATPrep and in Knewton
During the test I thought I performed bad on quant (because of lot of noise ; I guessed first 4-5 q's , so I think a 47 can be justified). But I can't find any explanation for a 32 on verbal. In my previous attempt of GMAT, I performed much worse ( because I felt I didn't undertsnad why I was choosing an answer.) But, I still managed a 34 on verbal.
I seriously think there was a bug in my algorithm.
Also, I read on the internet that many previous test takers,especially at my center, which is not really a Pearson VUE center but administers the exam for Pearson (GLOBAL ASCENT TESTING CENTER), have reported issues such as disconnection of internet, the freezing of the computer screen. This further makes me skeptical that my computer's algorithm might have had a bug.
My previous test center, a real PEARSON VUE center, was in delhi. I got a score of 640 that tiem around, but honestly, I didn't expect much either because I barely touched 670 on any of my CATs.
Do you guys think that taking GMAT again,this time in delhi, in a month will improve my chances of getting a better score? I'm again studying the materials that I studied last time to remain in touch with the test.
Also, it would be great if someone else who had similar experience share his/her experience.
