Hey all,
I know that as the tests come closer we all set into panic mode and have numerous questions that some of you must be thinking is this person furreal????
Well consider this one of those instances!
I have just 4 days left for my exam and my practice scores are as follows:
GMATPrep1 650
GMATPrep2 660
GMAT Prep 1 #1 730 v42Q48
GMAT Prep2#1 710v41Q46(skipped 3 questions)
GMAT Prep1#2 720v41Q48


I am in the 700+range but just barely hanging on. Well my question is did you find the GMAT prep2 test harder than GMATPrep1 or perhaps were your scores lower than prep1?I did the GMATPrep1#1 and GMATPrep2#1 with essays.

I have 4 days left and I think I need to do some serious SC revision to boost my verbal score. I have stopped doing challenges and am concentrating my efforts on the GMATprepquestions for quant. Would you suggest I stick with these questions for verbal as well? I do not plan on doing any tests on my last day. I have two more days and I plan to do the full length exams on each day. Would you suggest I break it down to doing 2sets of quant sections and verbal sections on each day or do the full length exams?

Also wrt sending in the names of our schools. Do we have to remember the specific codes or is there some sort of dropdown list to choose the schools from.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all the help you have given me thus far!!!

I got a 670 (#1) and 710 (#2) on my first two gmatpreps and got a 710.

I'll bet you are in the 690-710 range...will give you the "game day performance factor" some people get which jumps them 20 points from their first two gmatprep tests.

My last test scores (re-takes, but not with that many repeats, surprisingly) for each were:

GMATPrep1: Q47, V47
GMATPrep2: Q49, V46

That said, I didn't really notice much of a difference between the two tests' difficulty level. I think it all depends upon which questions the algorithm delivers.

Regarding your nerves, just relax. Go into the test knowing you prepared well, and just take care of business.

You are on track for 700 but of course since you are borderline, there are no guarantees. Depends on test day.

Thanks for your post, its very encouraging.My verbals are in general 39-41 and this is discounting the numerous repeats that I have seen. I have been revising SC and hope to get a 41-42 score.
Just trying my best.
Did another GMATPrep exam GmatPrep1#3 scored 750(Q49 V44)
Plan to do another 3-4 full length exams and just give it my best shot.
