Hello All,

I have my 1st official GMAT on 27th Dec, 2016.
Following are my scores from different tests I gave this week:

1) Kaplan Free: 680 (Q45 V 39)
2)MGMAT free: 650(Q42 V37)
3) GMAT Prep exam 4: 680 (Q48 V34)
4) GMAT prep exam 6: 640(Q47 V30)

Devastated by exam 6.

Is the exam 6 of gmat prep relatively difficult? With these kind of what are the slightest odds for achieving 700?

Hi asiscool,

Regardless of the relative difficulty of each of the GMAC CATs, taking 4 CATs in 1 week was not a good idea. The process of taking (and properly reviewing) a CAT requires a significant amount of effort and energy - and takes time to 'recover' from. This is one of the reasons why you shouldn't take more than 1 FULL CAT per week. This is also meant to say that you should STOP taking CATs at this point. It's likely that you're experiencing some 'burn out' right now - and that's something that you want to avoid right before Test Day.

After reviewing each section of this CAT, how many questions did you get wrong....
1) Because of a silly/little mistake?
2) Because there was some math/verbal that you just could not remember how to do?
3) Because the question was too hard?
4) Because you were low on time and had to guess?

I bet that you'll find plenty of questions that were 'gettable', but you made some little mistake.

Hi rma26,

"Review" is an important part of the GMAT training process - and it's important to try to define WHY you're getting questions wrong (so that you can focus your studies on 'fixing' whatever issues are keeping you from scoring higher. There are solutions to all of those issues, but you have to provide a bit more information on how you've been studying, your timeline/goals and your recent CAT results. You might also want to start your own 'thread', so that other members/Experts can offer advice (and keep the conversation focused on your situation).

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
