Hey everyone!!!
I took GMAT last year and got a 670 Q50 V31, (Veritas Prep CATs : 650 700 710,730,710; GMAT Prep :750 740)

I am taking it again this year (in 2 more days), This time I took MGMAT CAT (670,730,780,750,760) GMAT Prep (760,750) 780 is not reliable as i took it with multiple breaks in between
Last year i prepared for around 20 days.
this year I've been preping for about 2 months now, Quant I've been score 51 consistently, verbal, this time i improved a bit and getting 40+ (39 once) ...... How accurate are these MGMAT CATs and GMAT Prep??? Because last time i scored significantly lesser than what i scored on mock CATs
any reply would be helpful
thank you!

Hi,

Most people scores vary +/- 40 points from their mock scores. It all depends on the test environment and other external factors on the test day.

I would suggest you to keep your cool. Since only 2 days left. Take 1 mock on the same time as your test day. Last day-Just revise notes and do some easy problems. And have a good night sleep.

But is it advisable to write a mock just 2 days before GMAT? GMAT is very tiring mentally. I'm scared it'll affect my performance on the gmat day

Hi santoshreddyk,

To start, you should NOT take any more CATs at this point. There is nothing to be gained - and you would be far more likely to 'burn out' before Test Day by doing so. In addition, it's far too late to be overly concerned about the accuracy of these score results (since there's no time to do anything about it). You would be better served by doing some light review and getting some extra rest. You have the capacity to score at a high level; just remember that the GMAT will give you the score that you EARN - so you have to stay focused on making smart choices and doing correct, organized work on Test Day.

Hi

Manhhattan GMAT Mocks are a bit harder than GMAT Prep...According to Majority of reviews Manhattan Mocks result is within 20 Score less than the real GMAT BUT It varies sometime.

Hi Santosh,

MGMAT tests are one of the best tests available in the market. They are a notch tougher than the real GMAT which makes it worth practicing with.

Quant- MGMAT quant is one of the toughest quant tests out there. The difficulty level of the questions is much higher than the GMATPREP or even the actual GMAT. I always ran out of time while practicing MGMAT tests which never happened on the GMATPREP tests. Secondly I felt that the quant questions on the MGMAT tests involved intensive calculation. However practicing higher difficulty questions definitely prepares you well for the actual test.

Verbal- I felt the verbal section was a level below the actual GMAT. There were a few SC and CR questions with which I didn’t agree with but overall nice and challenging questions. RC was definitely tough and more often included long passages. Overall a decent practice.

Post test analysis- I loved this part as they give you a nice detailed analysis of your test which helps the test taker evaluate their tests in details and MGMAT has great explanations for all the questions which helps the test taker improve their weak areas.

Scoring Algorithm- I normally scored between 650-730 on the MGMAT tests. My low scores were mainly because of low Quant score. MGMAT algorithm still needs some improvement in my opinion as it tends to underestimate your score by around 30 points

Overall I think the practice tests are great. Hope this helps. All the best.
