Hi expert bb, could you please give some advices on what next steps should be taken..

For the past 1 month, I have taken 5 tests (2 from GMAT Prep and 3 from MCAT), and I could see some clear differences between CATs of these 2 providers.
Regarding Verbal, I got 1 same and 1 higher score in MCATs as/than in GMAT Prep. This surprised me, because in GMAT Prep CAT, I countered some Verbal questions that are similar to ones I had attempted in GMAT Club, while I nearly never ever faced with any Verbal questions in MCATs before.
When it comes to Quant, I'm really shocked when my scores in MCATs are much lower than those in GMAT Prep. I got Q50 in both GMAT Prep CATs, but only Q47 and Q45 in MCAT. In the 2nd GMAT Prep CAT, I even had approximately 15 minutes remained.

What are proper conclusion(s) should I draw from the above data?
Are those Verbal scores of MCAT reliable? Or just because MCAT Verbal might be a little bit easier?
I used to hear about the difficulty level of MCAT Quant before but didn't expect that much. Do you think that gap in Quant scores really matters?

I have 1 month left until the real exam. What should I do now?

Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon.


MGMAT quant questions are much harder than GMATPrep quant questions. You should expect Q50 in the real test.

About the difference in your Verbal, you can't conclude that MGMAT verbal questions are easier than GMATPrep Verbal questions. In fact, there are many factors that effect your score, and the difficult level of questions is just one of these factors. However, MGMAT and GMATPrep are two best tools to estimate score at the moment. Hence, based on your score on MGMAT, you should expect a overall score with +/-30 in the real test.

Can someone who has tried out both MGMAT tests and GMAT club tests recommend the better pick out of the two?

Hi,

Took my first Veritas CAT today and scored a 630 Q40V30.

This is my first CAT and took it after brushing up fundamentals in GMAT club grammar book and math book. This is the first time I opened a book after 7.5 years to read something.

I also tried some timed questions in forum and answered awfully, before taking the test. I am now unsure of whether this score is a decent indicator, since I expected a very bad score. I intend to plan my study schedule and I am confused whether I should consider this result as the platform to identify my strengths and weaknesses. Experts, pl help.

Hi ss3617,

A 630 in first CAT is pretty strong. I would suggest brush up formulas and some concepts and take GMATPrep CAT. The score that you see on GMATPrep can be relied MORE than other CATs. Invest some hours reviewing this CAT and every other subsequent CAT to know your weakness, which is not only about WHAT you did not know but also about HOW/WHAT/WHY you got a question wrong or right OR spent ton of time.

Here are official CATs available:
1. GMATPrep (CAT-1 & 2) - Free (download from mba.com
2. ExamPack-1 (CAT-3 & 4)
3. ExamPack-2 (CAT-5 & 6)
4. Question Pack-1 (this is set of 400+ easy-medium-high difficulty level questions). You can choose 37/41 questions and attempt them in timely manner but you will not get any score.

Do every official GMAC question available out there. Specially in VERBAL. You need to learn more the way a question is PREPARED/TESTED/CONCEPT-DISGUISED than too many concepts.

Apart from official material MGMAT questions are pretty good.

In Quant - If you can do (means learn from) ALL the GMATClub quizzes/CATs then you're done.

When you start getting consistent scores that are near to your target score then you're all prepared for the real test.

Plan the Official CATs throughout your preparation. do not take them one after another.
1. revise a CAT
2. revise concept & error log
3. take another CAT and repeat 1 & 2.
4. take official CAT
5. repeat 1-4.

Please post if you have any followup questions.

Thanks for the info. Thats a lot of insight.
Only one doubt. I have the OG18, quant and verbal review and the question bank associated with it. Are these the same which you get in Question pack-1?

No. It is a set of 404 questions (200 Quantitative, 180 Verbal, and 24 Integrated Reasoning) that you can buy for $30 here - https://www.mba.com/india/store/store-catalog/gmat-preparation/gmatprep-question-pack-1.aspx

You can make sets of questions presented in OG2018 and review guides as well. Make use of Wiley online access :)

P.S.: Make a study plan and divide the study material to be read/practised/CAT accordingly.
