How to know when to write the "beast" [#permalink]

Based on various threads, looks like if GMATprep score is > target score you are good to go.
If you have taken GMATprep already, then problem is trickier since you get some repeat questions.
So my question is how would you know reliably(at least with some degree of accuracy +-25) that you are near your target score.

Since the score is also level dependent, its hard to put a % number in practice sessions. Is it better to take more CATS (albeit unknown entities) or try to hit some % of accuracy in known sources.

Any help appreciated...

1) Uninstall GMATPrep and reinstall (delete existing logs) for new set of questions.
2) If you already went through step 1 above, purchase additional questions from GMATPrep.
3) MGMAT sells CAt exams online and although it isn't as good as GMATPrep, it's a close second when it comes to GMAT score accuracy.

I would say repeat GMATpreps are boosted by 50 points or more, and get less and less accurate the more often you take them. Somewhere around your 10th pass it becomes largely pointless.

Unless you really need GMAT urgently, it does not seem you will "feel" ready to take the test
