I got 680, Q48 and V37. It's the first CAT I take but it seems a weird score, especially for quant where I'm pretty sure I still need to practice a lot. I was expecting something in the 500s and my goal is over 650.
Do you think it's over inflated much in the quant section?


Hi can you please tell whether they give explanatory answers after giving the test?
I prefer giving only those mocks when I get explanatory answers so that I can learn from my mistakes.
Please help me!

They do. You'll get a report after you're done with correct answers and reasoning explained.

Thanks for the reviews. I guess I'll give it a try. Does it offer explanations to the answers?

i took this test today.

score: 750 (q50/v44)

quant:(13 wrong)
few questions were really good but didnt felt that it was adaptive ..
with 13 wrong and score 50 it was little weird.
overall i will say its a good practice.

verbal:(16 wrong):
the questions i felt were really good and test also has some good passages.
verbal i will say almost level of gmat prep .
again with 16 wrong and getting a score of 44 is little awkward.

pros:

=good question bank overall.
=userfriendly site.
=great explanation in the end with some good strategies.

cons:
=scoring pattern not accurate.(IMO deduct 50 from your score to judge your level)
=explanation for few questions were missing.
=few of the questions are already out their in the forum.

hope it helps


I took the mock test today and I got Q51 in spite of having 9 questions wrong. Is that possible on the real GMAT?
I am a little skeptical.
In Verbal, i got 11 questions wrong and got just 31.
So disappointed. My target for GMAT is 710. Really confused on what to expect on D-day.
Can someone help me gauge here please?

In the weeks leading up to my official GMAT, I took a few Economist practice tests and received a 770 and 760 on two separate exams, in exam-like settings:

Oct 18 - 770 (Q50, V45)
Oct 20 - 760 (Q51, V43)

On the real exam I scored a 660, a full ~110 points lower that my Economist practice tests that I took 1 week prior:

Oct 27 - 660 (Q48, V33)

In my opinion, the Economist has one of the worst practice tests available on the market. I would not recommend them; they are far too easy when compared to the actual exam.

The only way to know how you will truly score is the actual GMAT exam. These practice tests, especially Economist, are not reflective of the real thing.

Did you ever take a GMAT Prep practice test prior to the actual exam?
