49Q 40V on GMATprep/ 40Q 29V on the real deal [#permalink]

Has anyone ever gone into such difference?
I not scared at all with the verbal score, for me it is very volatile, i think this score is totally possible, specially because i had insane RCs
But i'm very scared with my quantitative score.
I already studied a lot all MGMAT books (read a lot of times and done all the exercises), solved every Official guide problem 3 times and done some tests (gmatprep and MGMAT)
On gmatprep I scored 49, 46, 48, 48, 49 (in this order)... i always let much time pass between tests to help not remember the questions
I also done the MGMAT one time and scored 44...but I was doing the test 3:00 a.m. and was almost falling asleep... I also made some dumb mistakes I usually don't and I took this test at a very early stage of my study...
I have been studying since May.
The funny thing is that I thought the Q section were very easy. I thought I did well on Q, although i randomly guessed the last 3. I just could not believe when I saw a 40.

What do you think could have happened? (i think is important to say that i think i was not nervous on the test)
Dont all these scores on tests I took mean anything at all?
Or do you believe I just had the worst day I can have(a lot of right questions were experimentals, got a lot of the first 10 wrong, etc)? Do you think is realistic for me to look for a 49 on Q?
I`m not worried with my verbal, but I need a high quantitative score (48-49). After this 40 I'm wondering if I can make this on the real deal.

Thanks a lot.

GmatPre 710 and 750.... 610 on the real test.
My Q dropped from 48-50 to 44, and my V from 40-41 to 30 !!!!!!
I also had insane RC, really harder compared to Gmatpre.
I also got several easy math questions .... that made me thinking that I was not doing so well ....

BTW I'll take the test again soon. I'll figure out whether I was unlucky or GmatPre is not such a good estimator

Hello, guys

it is really strange.
First of all, be skeptic with your score if you are doing the same GMATPrep for more than the first time. Have you tried another CAT rather than that MGMAT late-night trial? You may have done a lot of known questions and your score is likely to be inflated.

But, honestly, I took the real test a few days ago and the result was both surprising and disappointing.
As I told in a previous post, I never had scored below 42 in Q (even without any preparation) and that day I scored 33. My history scores in Q were 42, 44, 45, 44, 46 (something like that).

I have two theories:
1) GMAC increased the test's ratio difficulty/score as people started to score high (if you do not believe this, look at this post: http://www.gmatix.com/blogging/index.php?x=22)
2) I was handicapped with my own anxiety

For either reason 1 or 2 (or both), the only thing to do is: study.

So, regardless of the reasons:
1) study hard
2) be calm during the test

Did I help?

wow that is a huge discrepancy.

What were some of your difficulties on the RC passage? was the material dense? questions more difficult than expected?

Could you pinpoint specific question types in math and verbal that were giving you a hard time?
