Hello All,

I have a question about MGMAT's quant section. I have taken 4 CAT's my quant scores have steadily improved from Q40 to Q47. I feel like i have a much better grasp of quant then when i started, i have put a lot of study time in. My question is how reflective is the MGMAT quant score to the actual GMAT quant section. I know MGMAT is "harder" just trying to get peoples opinion on how much harder. The last CAT i took i got Q47, the test had 25 - 700-800 level questions, from what i understand this is not indicative of the actual test.

I understand there isn't a concrete answer to the question. Just looking for some insight.

Thank You.

Hi Asemonick,

Have you taken any of the GMAC CATs yet? If you have, then how did you score (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

Since the Official Scoring 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. That having been said, the MGMAT CATs will provide a reasonable assessment of your abilities IF you use the CATs correctly.

1) Are you still finishing sections early when you take your CATs?
2) Have you set an Official Test Date yet?

Rich,

thank you for yet another quick response. Gmat club is such a great resource. Ive gotten much better with time management, but still room to improve, this has helped to eliminated some of the "dumb" mistakes. Just trying to see how this score stacks up, seemed like an abundance of tough questions during mgmat quant tests. Plan on taking a gmat prep CAT tomorrow to compare. I still haven't scheduled a test, it is something i really need to do. My work schedule has been a bit crazy lately. I have a few business trips coming up which is making it difficult to commit to a date.

Hi Asemonick,

Many Test Takers would agree that the Quant section of the MGMAT CATs is a bit tougher than what you'll see on the Official GMAT, but you shouldn't become too obsessed with how a GMAT company "ranks" its own questions. Your ultimate goal on Test Day is to maximize your performance (and that requires that you minimize the silly/little mistakes) - when reviewing ANY CAT result, one of the things to focus on are the questions that you COULD/SHOULD have gotten correct, but didn't. Those missed questions could represent some serious points IF you make too many little mistakes on the Official GMAT.

Given what you've described about your work schedule, it's possible that you'll 'find reasons' to push back your planned Test Date again and again. By selecting a future Test Date, and locking in that Exam, you'll add a level of responsibility to this process that might currently be lacking.

A quick update from yesterday. I took Gmat prep CAT and got Q49. Still some silly mistakes to clean up but Q50 or 51 doesn't seem impossible anymore. The biggest difference between GMAT Prep and MGMAT is the amount of difficult questions. GMAT prep has just as difficult of questions just not the same amount. Officially time to focus on Verbal.
