So I have decided to grab my MBA. I took a Kaplan practice GMAT test last night with the idea that I just wanted to see where I am sitting. My scores were better than what I expected. How accurate are these tests? Can I expect similar scoring if I took the real deal?

Thanks in advance,

I am trying to determine when I will take my test.

Hi boliverallmon,

The accuracy of a practice CAT result depends heavily on how realistically you make the 'CAT-taking process.' Before we talk about those details though, I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:

1) What was your score on this CAT (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
2) What is your goal score?
3) When are you thinking about taking the GMAT?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hey boliverallmon ,

Welcome to GMATClub. :)

I would always prefer to give free test from mba.com (official material) and determine where I stand.

All the best for your prep. :)

It's certainly a good sign, but as abhimahna pointed out, try to take a GMATPrep test. If you have already taken the 2 free tests, you can pick up either Exam Pack 1 or Exam Pack 2 (or both).
