hey guys,

I am a little confused regarding the Manhattan GMAT CAT. I just did the first one after some basic preparation for about one month.
In the end my score was 690 (Q45, V39) although I did many mistakes (in quant I think nearly 40-50% wrong). I doubt that I would
end up with a score like that in the real GMAT. So I just wanted to ask you whether u know how accurate the manhattan CATs are
(I only aim for a GMAT score of >600)?

regards!

How much time do you have left before the GMAT?
your verbal score is solid and your quant is GOOD as a baseline

Wow, great start, hellfridge! A 690 when you're only shooting for 600+? Awesome.

To answer your question, Manhattan GMAT's tests aren't perfectly accurate, since no test-prep firm can perfectly copy the exact style of the actual GMAT, but they're usually pretty close. If you've heavily used MGMAT materials, then it's conceivable that your score is biased upwards, but a 690 on an MGMAT test looks awfully good to me, especially with such a solid quant/verbal balance.

It's always possible to miss a ton of questions on the GMAT quant section and still do really really well on the test. The GMAT scoring algorithm basically gives you a score based on which questions you miss, not necessarily on how many questions you miss. So you can miss a crapload of questions and do wonderfully on quant, as long as you only miss harder questions, and get the easier ones right.

I hope this helps. Keep up the nice work!

hey guys,

thank you very much for ur feedback. In fact I have only 2 weeks left until the gmat. So I will try to study
as efficient as possible the upcoming days (@souvik: I already checked the links u posted and I think some
explanations apply perfectly for me!) Since I am not a native speaker I planned to focus a little more on the verbal
part now.

Actually Ninja u are right, I did study a lot with the Manhattan books. So I might try the gmat club tests or the gmatprep
later on and compare them with my previous result.

Thanks guys!
