Hi!
I took the Knewton Free CAT today
This is how i performed:

Verbal:
37 correct, 5 incorrect. score = 43 (96 percentile)

Quant:
34 correct, 3 incorrect. score = 49 (87 percentile) (I marked wrong answers for ques 9, ques 36 and ques 37)

Overall = 750 (99 percentile)

1) In quants, GMAT prep awarded me 51 for 4 incorrect ques, 50 for 7 incorrect ques. How does the scoring method for Knewton works? Do I have to answer all questions correctly to get a 51??

2) Was it because of the 2 wrong answers at the end of quants, that I got 49?? Does finishing a section with a right answer matter so much.

3) What is level of difficulty of Knewton's free CAT compared to the actual GMAT. I need this information in order to decide whether to go for the paid course or not. I have taken 6 MGMAT CATs, which I found to be tough compared to GMAT prep

I can't answer your question as I have not taken any of the Knewton CATs

But I was wondering, what were you scoring on the MGMT CATs?

I have taken 5 Knewton CATs over the past 2 months and took 2 GMATPrep CATs this past week. Knewton ranged from 590-660 and GMATPrep was 700 and 730. I scored a 620 on a Knewton exam and got more 4 more questions correct overall than the 700 on GMATPrep.

yup - I am convinced the scoring is off.. I just finished their course and the last CAT dropped the verbal down to a 34 with 6 mistakes for a 670 (47Q with 3 mistakes)... I was really hoping to end on a high... but sigh..

I have ranged 39-47 verbal on the other 5 Knewton CATs

My verbal has been in the 40s last for the last 10 CATs (princeton, kaplan, GMAT prep)...

Would you guys please link me to the Knewton free CAT? I'm surfing their website and I can't find anything free.
