MGMAT CAT Math Vs Real GMAT Math - Help Needed [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 19 Aug 2010, 01:02
I'm taking the GMAT in a week

Just finished my 6'th CAT from MGMAT and quite frankly I'm scared :(
In all the 6 CAT's my math score was 43-45

I also took GMAT PREP 1+2 and scored 49 + 51 respectively

I honestly don't know what to think and what to do in the next week
coming from a strong math background, I found the GMAT PREP math to be moderate
but the MGMAT math is much more difficult
so I'd like to know whether this math level represents the level on the real GMAT

I would appreciate any thought on this

p.s. My target score is 720+ and my verbal scores are 38-40 in all tests

Thanks

Hi Helen,

Do not worry w.r.t. Quant. Your scores are good! Period. Manhattan Quant is designed to be on the higher side v/s Actual GMAT.
My scores were 46-47 consistently and I ended up with a 49 on the D-day! Also, the algorithm used in case of GMAT Prep tests is the truest representation of the Actual GMAT.

So, good luck...just remain calm throughout the process.

I would say over prepare for the verbal section of the test. I have seen many debriefs in which the verbal score on the real test falls more drastically than the quant score. Moreover, the CR questions on the MGMAT are not worded nearly as nicely as the ones in GMAT prep/or the real test.
