Here is where I am right now. I have 2 weeks to the D-Day. I have taken the following Full length exams:
I went with Princeton - It was the only available within 150 miles
so a lot of driving once a week.
P1 Q43 V37 660 (Described above)
P2 Q51 V31 660 (was working on Quant for 2 weeks) got 1 Quant wrong.
P3 Q51 V37 710 (started working on all 3 section of verbal) got 1Q and 9V wrong
P4 Q50 V37 700 (Worked on AWA) got 2 Quant wrong – score dropped to Q50
P5 Q51 V41 730 (Worked on verbal SC and analytical reasoning)
So after that I really really worked on the verbal – I assumed that I need V43-44 to get to 750+. Today I took the test that comes with GMAC I believe that it is called GMAC test or something (It is on GMAC software) and I am totally baffled !
Score = G1 Q51 V38 730
Questions / thoughts:
1. I scored Q51 although I got 5 Q's wrong. (Have been out of practice - but that is not the big deal). How is that possible?
2. I scored V38 although I got 9 Q's wrong. In the earlier exams I had done equally well or bad in all three subsections(relatively), but I scored V41. This could be due to CAT but is surprising nevertheless.
3. In CR I had 100% accuracy (used to have around 80-90%) – I did work on this but was pleasantly surprised.
4. I completed the Verbal exam atleast 20 minutes earlier – my pacing went for a toss, How did this happen – Is this typical?
5. I was baffled by the RC – the passages were a lot shorter than the Princeton, but were intense – so I got 6 out of 14 wrong (I was averaging under 2 minutes with 70-80% accuracy) Do I need a diff strategy?
6. Biggest mystery is: How come a score of Q51 V38 translates to 730 in the GMAC test? While in Princeton tests Q51 V41 translated to 730. This is a significant statistical anomaly – is this expected?
