Hi All,

I just scheduled my exam for next week, and my plan was to do each GMATPrep test twice before the exam, however, I ran into a little surprise tonight.

I've done the MGMAT exam 10 times (1,2,3, and 4 were done twice), with the last six results ranging from 730 to 750 (highest Q was a 49, and highest V was a 50). My goal is get a 750, and I had hoped to bump my scores over that in the next week with the GMATPrep tests until I took the first GMATPrep tonight...

I just scored a 50 on Q but a measly 36 on V! I think the combined factors of a long work day, a starting time of 10PM for the exam, and the UI difference between GMATPrep and MGMAT contributed some to the horrendous score, but I think it was mostly because the material was tougher. I had four or five reading passages, and they were all pretty tough IMO (I actually had to rush through the last 10 questions in the verbal section with 8 minutes left). I'm certain I won't score a 36 on GMATPrep again, but I'm not very confident about that 48+ V score anymore... How does the verbal section in the real GMAT compare to the MGMAT? The GMATPrep?

Thank you for your responses in advance (sorry for the venting). =)

IMO, RC's are much easier in GmatPrep. The passages are simpler to understand and questions aren't that tough when compared to those of MGMAT tests. SC's are easier in MGMAT if you have a full grasp of their SC book, I find the SC's in gmatprep to be much tougher. The CR level to me is pretty much the same.

I advise you to not to sweat too much at this point. Analyze your mistakes in your first test and take the second one with a cool head

I agree with rakesh on SC's. I think GMATprep SC's are really much tougher than the OG SC's or MGMAT SC's. However, I disagree that RC's are easier. I have seen brutal passages in GMATPREP especially when you hit the 40+ levels.

Focus on doing more verbal questions right now and not on quant. Do long practice sessions with verbal and then try out the GMATPrep again.
