Hi everybody,
Last week, i scored 470 in gmatPrep (Qt:43 and Verbal:18) but i tried yesterday with powerprep and i scored 540(QT:45 and Verbal:20)
I don't know wether these two CAT tests use the same scoring method?

Thank you

Whether its GMAT Prep or Power Prep, your score is within 470-540 range. If you see your Q and V breakout, the scores are pretty much the same.

The lower the GMAT score, the volatility is greater and higher the GMAT score, volatility is smaller - meaning that as your GMAT score rises (i.e. - 700 range), it is much more difficult for your score to vary. That's why it is so much more difficult to raise your GMAT score in 700 range - compared to GMAT score in 500 and 600 ranges.

My recommendation is that you focus on verbal section to raise your score. Many GMAT takers that score low on verbal are usually international students.

To raise CR - use Powerscore CR Bible. It is a long read but it covers every topic.

To raise SC - use MGMAT SC guide. It is simply the best.

To raise RC - try using GRE RC guides...they are very difficult and very good in raising your RC scores.

Try to master easy questions first before attacking more difficult problems. This is because GMAT CAT will give you easier questions first and once you get those right consistently, it will show you more difficult questions. If you constantly practice with 700 level questions, you won't raise your score because you will consistently get 500 and 600 level questions wrong.

Good luck!

Kind regards,

Your verbal score is low therefore, if you can correct your verbal fundamentals, you can easily bring it up to mid 30's.

Even though you are studying with the right materials, perhaps you are having trouble understanding the fundamentals in the book. That's why your verbal score isn't improving. Think of it this way....if I scored 22 before and I went back to the books to review my fundamentals - then retook the exam. But your verbal score still was around low 20's. It means that you are still answering verbal questions the same way you answered them the first time.

Another way of saying it is that you are still following the same logic when choosing answers during the exam. You got to do practice exams in OG and review answer explanations for both correct and wrong answers. See if you got the right answer with same explanation the book is giving you. If not, then you need to learn why.

I have no idea about materials to use in order to improve your score above 600.
I'm targeted for 620-650
good luck
