Hey guys!
First time poster here. I took the official GMATPrep practice test the other day on the computer and got a 750 (M: 50, V: 42, IR: 8) with about an hour of preparation beforehand. I would definitely be happy with that score on an actual GMAT, so I have two questions:

1. Exactly how accurate in your experience is the GMATPrep test?

2. Where should I go from here? Obviously, it'd be great to improve this score but I think my priority is to get to a point where I can get a 750 reliably going into a real GMAT test. I have not purchased any prep materials, and am not really sure what the best path is moving forward. I will say that my biggest weakness right now is clearly data sufficiency; of the eight questions I got wrong in the quant section, six of them were data sufficiency Q's. Thanks so much guys!

1. The GMATPreps are very accurate (though they can't simulate exam day pressure). They use the same algorithm as the GMAT and have a good set of questions. You should be fine if you were not already familiar with the questions you got on your test.

2. I don't see any need for intensive preparation here (750 with 1 hour of prep sounds amazing). You clearly do not have too many weaknesses. I suggest you take a few (2-3) more tests and check which areas you need to revise. Work on those concepts and take 1 or 2 more tests to practice your timing strategy. If you consistently get high scores, go ahead and take the test.
