Hi:

I took PowerPrep today and got a score of 700. The PowerPrep GMAT math seems to be much tougher than Official Guide examples. Are there any resources that can help me prepare at the PowerPrep Math level?

Also, how can I get materials for 1000 SC, RC and CR that I have read so much on this site. I can't seem to find the link to these materials.

I plan to take the test sometime in late September. Please help me gurus!

Thanks.

I don't mean to scare you. But, did you mean to say PowerPrep or GMATPrep? If you do say PowerPrep, I have to tell you that PowerPrep math is way easier and below the current real GMAT math level. GMATPrep math level is about the same or a little harder than the real GMAT math level.

Agree, but PowerPrep requires more questions to be right for a decent math score (I had 6 wrong and got 48)

Take GMATClub challenges as many as you can. They are a little bit harder than actual GMAT (people say) and GMATPrep questions. As for the theory -> may be MGMAT.

Hi:

Thanks for your quick responses. I took the GMATPrep. Sorry for the confusion earlier.

I had taken 1 test on Princeton Review and another GMAT paper test that I had found, but got very few Math problems wrong (may be 3 at the most). I realized that I took longer to solve problems on GMATPrep as they were more difficult and my error rate was also high. Also, GMATPrep tested on tricky inequalities, number theory and some questions were clearly not represented in any material that I had seen earlier. Is this normal? And any advice.

Could you also point me to 1000 SC, RC and CR that I have read about so much on this site.

What is your feedback on Manhattan GMAT online tests? Are they equally difficult as GMATPrep?

Thanks a ton.

I have not taken MGMAT tests, but read that its math is really hard.

I would strongly suggest GMATClub challenges and/or MGMAT CAT Math (even if you do it un-timed) just to get used to SUPER tough questions and learn the tricks and shortcuts. After that, GMATPrep or even the real GMAT will seem easy!
