MGMAT CAT Difficulty (Later easier than earlier?) [#permalink]

Hey guys, this may be a silly question but I want to make sure my most recent score isn't a fluke since i'm taking the real gmat on the 24th.

I've taken the 6 MGMAT CAT exams with the following scores and am finally hitting the 700 mark! This is great since i've heard the MGMAT exams are harder than the real thing. I'm going to go back over the areas i've done poorly on and then take the GMAT prep in my final week. Has anyone seen any indication of the later MGMAT CAT exams being easier or is this jut my gmat parinoia kicking in? :D

MGMAT 1 Q31, V31 520 (Sept 2007)
MGMAT 2 Q43 V37 660 (Mar 2008)
MGMAT 3 Q39, V37 630 (Apr 2008)
MGMAT 4 Q40, Didn't take the verbal
MGMAT 5 Q40, V39 650 (May 2008)
MGMAT 6 Q46, V39 700 (June 2008)

As you can see by my scores i've really been hitting the quant hard to get those up this past month. Any suggestions on what I should do the last week or so?

Thanks All!

I cant really comment on whether they are easier or not as you progress in taking them. But I can comment that the real GMAT CATS score ranges are in line with manhattan CATS (from personal experience).

My final Manhattan CAT was 720, I scored 700 on the real thing. Thats -20.

My friend's final Manhattan CAT was 710, he scored a 740 on the real thing. Thats +30.

I would say that you will probably fall within +/- 30 points of your best Manhattan CAT. How you handle yourself on test day can have a huge impact. Keep your nerves in check, stay focused, and dont forget what you learned. If you do this, I think you will have no problem joining the 700 club.

i think the scoring of the last two MGMAT tests is definitely more in line with the real gmat (i think the earlier tests give you a much lower score).

having said that the algorithm is still very different (i.e you can get a high score with way too many incorrect answers).

I'd recommend you take MGMAT tests just to get some practice and simulate test conditions in the final days. Do not look too much into the score it spits out. For that save your GMATPreps

I agree. I took 2 MGMAT and scored 710 both. Then i decided to take GMATprep and i got ugly 630
But anyway MGMAT is good for practice.

I just did my first MGMAT CAT ever.

Quantitative 26 19 %
Verbal 31 62 %
Total 480 32 %

I must say that I finished the Quant with 20+ minutes to spare and Verval with 10 minutes spare.

I'll do another one tomorrow. As a first attempt it was an eye opener.

Ok, 2nd MGMAT CAT done, including AWA and mimicking exam timing:

Quantitative 38 55 %
Verbal 31 62 %
Total 580 64 %

That's a lot better

I don't think the tests get easier. Maybe you feel it has become easier because you've improved your test taking ability

I don't know what to make out of MGMAT tests.I just gave my first MGMAT test and result is pretty shocking - 600(45q,29v)

I call it shocking because I have given so many other tests before:-

GMATPrep 1- 660(49Q,34V)
GMAT Prep2 - 640(48Q,31V)
Kaplan Online - 660
Veritas Prep - 660 (45Q,37V)

Gmatprep repeats also got me in the range of 650-700.I score 700 only once though.

So,I am not sure where I stand.

I won't use 'shocking' to describe a 40-50 point drop from gmatprep. Especially, if you took MGMAT CAT. It is actually pretty much in line or marginally bad. You should do well in the subsequent mocks. Good luck.
