GMAT Prep Max Score -770 . But am I really learning anything [#permalink]

Guys I have given "Practice Test 1" of GMAT Prep , 5 times over a period of seven days. My scores were: 700, 730,760,710,770. The average score was 734.

My main concern is that do this picture really represents what I am going to score in the main examination. Although I reviewed the questions each time I got them wrong, but when I did the last practice test , I actually knew all the answers. I even remembered the numbering of the options so much so that I did not read a single passage ,just saw what was is it all about and did all the questions pertaining to it.

I would really appreciate if someone can help me how to get a correct measure as this activity now seems futile.

well u probably know the answer already-its NOT representative. A 2nd take can inflate your scores by upto 50 points....and you took the test FIVE times....You are probably at the 720 level....my advice is , take a test from any other source(MGMAT ones are the best of the lot....I believe they have one free test...) And if you want to improve your score please hit strategy guides instead of taking ridiculous numbers of tests.... Otherwise, just give the GMAT, you seem to be at a 700+ level at any rate....if u are happy with tht just go ahead...

In my opinion, you should not be taking the same test again and again since it is a waste of time. If you remember the answers, how does going over them again and again help you solve new questions. There isn't much you learn from taking a test the third, fourth ... time. You don't learn time management, you don't learn handling stress and you don't learn many new concepts. After the first 2 attempts, the scores are certainly not representative (even the second one could be a little biased if you had some repeats).
Try different tests - one in two weeks - to get maximum advantage. Take a test, figure out your weaknesses and then take another test and so on...

What you are asking is to boil down the entire GMATClub knowledge base in one post...sorry mate, not possible. You might want to check out BB's study plan here:
gmat-study-plan-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html

also u might like to enlighten us about your score breakup(Q vs V)....if you are solid in atleast one , it might be still possible to get a 570 up to a 700 within a month...
