When to do practice exams?!! [#permalink] New post 26 Apr 2014, 12:58
Hi guys,
I took a MGMAT cat exam about 2 weeks ago and bombed it, 530 with 37q and 29v. Ive been working a lot on both sections and was wondering when is the correct time to try out another exam. Should I wait until I finish all my weaknesses, learn all the content etc and then try out another exam? or should I do the exam even though I have covered (for example RC)?

2 weeks of prep is usually long enough to improve and have taking another CAT make sense, but it depends on how much you are prepping and whether you feel like you have made a lot of progress. If not, you might want to wait another week.

Its ok that you haven't worked on some things in the interim between CATs; the key is to see improvement in what you have been working on.

As long as you've been doing a good job studying throughout the two weeks, it's worth it to take another practice exam. You'll be able to measure your progress and see what areas you still need to focus on.
