Hi All smart gmaters,
If any one could give an insight about the level of Manhattan Tests.
I took a test on the veritas prep and breezed through the qunat section scoring a 44.
But today when I took a manhattan gmat test , I found the problems quite difficult and requires an in-depth study of the material. So my question is : Are these manhattan quant
problems really reflective of the 700 level quant questions in the real GMAT.
Or Is it reflective of all levels of questions.
I would appreciate your thought or insight specially for folks have taken the test recently and may or may not have used the MGMAT as their guide.
My e-mail is firoz_rah@yahoo.com
Cheers

When I took the MGMAT test for the first couple of times, I had the same experience but after brushing up my concepts, Quant section in MGMAT tests was a breeze. The level of 700-800 Qs in MGMAT tests is pretty close to real GMAT.

I took GMAT just a week ago and you can read my experience post at:
8-t70141

Again, do not worry. Just keep your cool in first 10 Qs and you will sail through.

All the best.

This is misinformation at best. That's not really how adaptive tests work. You need to pay attention to each and every question, even ones that seem like they're "experimental." The first 10 questions are no more important than the last 7 or the middle 9.

And the Manhattan GMAT CATs are considerably harder. I took a live class with them (great, by the way) but I gave up after doing 4 CATs because they were seriously denting my confidence. GMATPrep is the only truly reliable indicator (+/- 30 points typically) of what your test day performance might be like. I was consistently scoring higher in my GMATPrep tests, and my final score was closer to the scores I'd been getting on GMATPrep.
