Hello Everyone,

I've been giving Manhattan mock tests and getting scores in the range of 600-640.

Anyone who has given the actual GMAT exam can share his/her experience and how difficult/easy it is as compared to Manhattan mock tests?

Are Manhattan mocks a good test series or any other mocks are recommended?

Manhattan Mocks are usually on tougher side.

You can add 30-40 points in real GMAT.

Manhattan mocks, especially quant, are bit tough than real GMAT. You can measure your score +30-50 from Manhattan mock score. The official mocks are most relevant to real gmat.

The Official Mocks are, I daresay, the gold standard when it comes to getting an accurate gauge of your score. Remember the GMAT also says "The standard error of measurement is 30-40 points."

Consider taking an Official Mock test sometime (two are free).

Hi GauravSJ,

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), but the CATs from Kaplan, MGMAT and Veritas are all 'close enough' to the real thing that they will provide you with a relatively realistic score assessment (assuming that you correctly take the CAT in a realistic fashion). The MGMAT CATs are generally regarded as being a little tougher than the real thing, so if you're close to your Score Goal when taking those CATs, then you might be ready for the Official GMAT.

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School and what Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi GauravSJ,

I have a very important question. Have you taken any official GMAC practice exams? If so, can you share the score breakdowns?
