I just took a full gmat simulation test on the lbs website and scored in a range between (as indicated by the website) 36-38 in the verbal section, even though i got 18 questions wrong. Should i doubt on the reliability of this score? It seems to be related somehow with economist gmat.
thank you in advance

Not "doubt" as much as "take with a pinch of salt". Take one of the official tests to get a better score estimate. Don't get me wrong: the V36-38 estimate could be correct. It's just that non-official tests are just less likely to be accurate.

Hi matt966,

The scoring algorithm on the Official GMAT is far more complicated than most people realize. Since that algorithm is proprietary, no GMAT company has an exact match for it, thus CAT scores can vary a bit based on the 'biases' involved in their respective designs. The most realistic CATs available are the 6 from GMAC (the 2 free CATs, and each of the 2 that come with Exam Pack 1 and Exam Pack 2), so it would be useful to know how you performed on one of those CATS. Have you taken any of those CATs? If you have not, then you should take one - and once you have that score result, you should post back here and we can talk through what all of this data means.

Beyond that data, it would also help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) What is your exact Test Date?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
