Guys,
one stupid question.
How does this negative scoring works.
Every time I do a verbal test, I am 3 (sometimes 4)questions short of finishing the test.
If i leave those questions without answering (in the real GMAT test) how many points do i loose.
If guessed wrong for those questions,How much score do i loose.

Appreciated!

The scoring algorithm of GMAT test is complicated. So one can not say how many points are deducted for each unanswered questions. However a test taker is punished severely for an unattempted question compared to a wrong question. And a series of wrong answers also penalize the test taker a good amount of points.

It is much better to answer all the questions wrong than to not answer at all.
