Hi guys,

I used a couple of experts global CATs and found that their questions are of good standard, particularly in Quants. However, I feel the RC passages are too tough and too complicated. I went through GMAT club 700-800 RC passages and did not feel that they were so tough as compared to experts global ones. Does somebody else feel the same? Or am I missing something here?

Hey, are you guys talking about the free 15 mock exams that they have provided?
If yes, as you have tried them, how close to the real GMAT exam do you guys think these are in terms of the difficulty level?
I know these are not adaptive but still how should one perceive the scores in these mocks?

Yeah the 15 free CATs.
I guess they are adaptive. Quants are good. But there was one particular question related to triangles that I felt is not a GMAT like question. But otherwise they were fine.
Regarding verbal, RCs were too tough. I couldn't comprehend most of passages, leave alone the questions. However in GMATprep software or OG, it wasn't so tough that I couldn't even comprehend the passage. SCs and CRs were OK. I scored a 720, 690 and 650 in three CATs. I can't comment about the algorithm, as I am not sure.

They are very good for practice but may not be very reflective, the reading passages are not really too difficult, I found Veritas RC to be more challenging than those. On the global experts I scored 740 couple of times - can't replicate that in other CATs. It inflated my quant which I brought to par with GMAT club CATs, now I am trying to increase my verbal - never thought it would be a problem

Try to use only the GMATPreps for scoring. I'm not saying the tests you're doing cannot provide accurate scores, but it is really quite hard to match the content and algorithm of the GMAT exam.

Hey! Thanks for the opinion guys.

Actually, I am a bit confused and frustrated right now. To give you all a brief idea, I gave my GMAT prep mock (second from exam pack 1, got 680 in the first) and got a 600
Q49 V23. I got 7 wrong in quant (was expecting a Q50 with 7 wrong with sufficient gaps though) and 15 wrong in verbal, 5 of which were in the first six questions. I know that's a lot but still, I don't think this could bring my verbal score down to 23. So, I am quite baffled too. I get V33 normally, so after this mock, my hopes are a bit shattered.

In general, I am pretty confident about my quant prep and scores, but I am seriously doubting my verbal aptitude after the GMAT prep mock. Can anyone suggest me what should I do to test my real ability and regain the lost confidence in verbal? Also, from where should I practice verbal at this stage as I have exhausted my Gmat prep Question pack and I am left with two mocks of Exam Pack 2.

PS - I want to give my exam within 20 days. My target score is 740.

The other GMATPrep practice tests remain your best bet. If V23 is well below your normal score, I suggest you not attach too much importance to it. Analyse your mistakes thoroughly and try to ensure that you don't repeat them, but don't let that score drag you down mentally.

I agree with Ajitesh here. Don't get bogged down by one bad result. If you were scoring V35 consistently, more often than not, you would score the same. Analyse the results. Check why you have got the wrong answers. Sometimes, it may be due to external factors like anxiety, rushing into the answers, etc. Take cue from that and do not repeat it.
