I don't think there is a mac version out, but you can use parallels or vmware to run an instance of windows to run it.

I gave powerprep today and I was unable to concentrate in the verbal section. The interface was so irritating that I was not even able to answer the questions I had already done on OG12 and Og verbal2.

I got terrible score in verbal and I m really :cry: .

Guys those who have done this powerprep, kindly share your thoughts. Its really de-motivating.

I will give gmatprep in a couple of days to judge my level, but I seriously thought that powerprep will be a good supplement to build the stamina and confidence.

Though I haven't taken the CAT from powerprep but I have installed it on my laptop, it changed my whole graphics! It looks terrible!! Also I don't think it will have correct algorithm that is working at present, so it would be better for you to take gmatprep and access where you stands right now.

I installed it for the same reasons mentioned by you :)

I m not concerned with the algo, but I have seen people scoring high on powerprep. So I felt disappointed.

A big overlap with the og's and still I was feeling dizzy.
The interface is so weired that I m having headache now.

I will give gmatprep in a day or two. :lol:

I have always advised others to give gmatprep on time, but I myself havn't given one because of fear for verbal.

But you should at least give one gmatprep now, as ideally by reinstalling we can get 4 tests with fewer overlaps.
I m also planning to give soon...lets see...I have dropped my plan for powerprep.

Only Gmatprep and mgmat Cat's.


I have one concern regarding the pool banks for two tests. If someone can confirm whether they have different or same pools, it will be very helpful to plan further.

See you might get common questions from OG 10 i guess.However note Powerprep belongs to ETS whereas gprep Pearson.So there should be a difference.

I was actually asking about the pools of two tests of Gmatprep.

Well, those scores can't be trusted :)
That's as far as I can go with that info - it is really impossible to judge... sorry. if you want to see your worst case scenario, take 15 percentile points (not points but percentile points) off your score, assuming you would get half of these wrong or not finished at all.

is the difficulty about the same between v1 and v2? I've heard a lot of people that the GMAT now is significantly more harder. Thanks.

Is it possible to run GMATPrep in windowed mode? My screen resolution is fairly high, and setting anything less than the screen's nominal resolution is inconfortable on the eyes. Moreover copying and pasting incorrect problems is pretty painful.

Thanks for your advise

Hi, I have taken the Test 2 in the GMAT Prep and although I did it well, I felt that the questions were much more difficult than the Test1 and than the most difficult questions in the OGs and GMAT Club, specially in the Verbal Section.

Have you felt the same? Are the GMAT Preps more difficult than the real GMAT?

Thanks!

No. GMAT Prep in my opinion is easier. In my experience, it overestimates by 20-40 points.

IMO you can never predict the real Gmat exam. Some users have cliamed it to be harder than gmatprep, but some have claimed that its level is almost same.

It all depends upon the luck, your anxiety levels, and confidence.

The reason why I have mentioned luck is that some may get difficult questions of type they are comfortable with.

This is redundant, "harder" is sufficient.

I'm sorry to correct your sentence, but I'm in SC enhancement mode at the moment :lol:

Please correct any mistake I might make in future posts :wink:

In gmatprep what is this review section? Do these questions overlap with the tests?

Also after the gmatprep it asks you to either end it or save the session. What is the difference? If it is ended, cant we access the correct/incorrect answers again?
