Hi guys, I noticed the following after taking GMATPrep twice:

GMATPrep 1: Q43 - 13 incorrect
GMATPrep 1 retake: Q47 - 14 incorrect

Why is it that my quant score is higher, even though I had more incorrect answers? Is it because I got more difficult questions right during the second time? Is there any experimental question in GMATPrep?

You are right about the "more difficult questions right"; the GMAT scoring is based on difficulty level of correct answers, not soley on the amount of wrong/right answers. Hope that helps!

Does anyone know how to go back on an existing GMATPrep test to see the score? I did my first GMATPrep over the weekend and accidentally clicked through the screen that showed my score.

There are 3 things:
1. Questions of different difficulty are scored differently
2. More mistakes early on in the test will yield lower score
3. Experimental questions do not count

If you want to dig into it, see these threads for details:

Don't think there is a way - at least I can't figure out how to do that in the software.
I looked through my logs and did not find it there...
