I had a fairly disappointing Manhattan CAT this last Saturday (640 - Q38 / V38).

I know the Manhattan vs Real/GMATPrep quant differences are well documented, and I expected to do not so great. Well, I expected 40+, but that's another story. I took this to make sure my timing was correct, as my test is in less than 3 weeks. I typically score 44-46 on GMAT Club tests untimed, so at this point I know where my weaknesses are and I know what I need to focus on.

What's more concerning is the verbal. I haven't really done anything other than my daily 4 questions here, but still performed what I consider to be OK on the test. What's baffling is why I only received a V38. I attached a screenshot of my assessment report. I realize I got 14 questions wrong...but they were all 700+ questions.

Do I have to get <10 wrong on the actual test to get above a V40?

It's really difficult to compare scores across providers. I suggest that you not worry too much about the exact score or the number of errors on non-official tests.

Accuracy is another very difficult subject, but yes, I think more than 10 mistakes will drop your score on the actual test to below 40. Keep in mind that this is with 30 questions, not 41 (there are experimental questions on the actual exam).

If you message me the email address you used for your MPrep account, I can post a couple of graphs that might explain why you got a lower score than you expected.
