Hi!

I just did a GMATPrep test and I got 690, Q 44 and V 40. I did the test without more or less any practice so the result was a pleasant surprise for me. But I wonder how accurate the result is, do you think I would score more or less the same on a real test?
I had a lot of time left: 23 mins on Q and 24 mins on V. So I guess i could improve my score a bit with better time management.
English is not my first language and the verbal section felt very hard for me, so I am really surprised that I ended up in the 89th percentile. I thought I would be much stronger in quant, so the 66th percentile is a bit disappointing. But I think I could improve the quant a bit easily with just taking a little bit more time on some questions.
I would be really happy for a score around 700. Do you think I am more or less there already? I am in a very busy period right now and it would be great if I didn't have to worry so much about studying for the GMAT. 700 is more than enough for the school I am applying too.
Could anyone as well recommend a book or a link where you can learn verbal strategies pretty quick. I think I can need that since I still think verbal is my weakest part.

Thanks

You can see some comparisons here: GMAT Score Calculator

P.S. the results are USUALLY within 40 points of your final score but obviously it happens that people have a diff experience on the test day.

You're in really good shape. Study and I bet you can get up to a 750 no problem!

GMAT prep is the official software so it's the closest to an accurate predictor you'll find.
