i have recently given knewton's quantitative test. The result that i achieved was

2)score 98%--> Q-51
3)average time per question---->1 min 30 sec
4)total time taken---> 58 min 58 sec

Based on these analysis what should i believe ... is the result correct as i got 12 questions wrong and still got the score as q-51....

If the result is correct what should i do next -- switch to verbal or IR or awa .

Till now i have prepared only for quant and still need to improve on verbal...

Help me with this result

Thanxx

In one of the Knewton's later tests I missed 2 problems and got a Q50, go figure. In one Kaplan test I got 0 incorrect and got a Q49. If you really want to test where you are in Quant try GMAT Prep Quant only and guess all in Verbal.

I wouldn't take any individual practice test result too seriously, unless you're doing the GMATPrep tests. It's extremely difficult for GMAT test-prep companies to accurately reverse-engineer the GMAT, and none of them are able to perfectly reproduce the scoring system. So take Knewton's test result with a grain of salt. It's certainly possible to miss a bunch of questions and still get a 51, but 12 missed questions (or maybe 10, since there are only 37 questions on the quant, and not 39...?) seems awfully high for a 51.

More importantly, it probably isn't a great idea to focus exclusively on quant, unless your verbal is unbelievably good. You can't really cram for verbal, especially the CR and RC questions, so if you need improvement in that area, you'll probably need consistent practice over a long period of time. While I can't take the 51 completely at face value, it's clear that you have some pretty solid quant skills, and you want to make sure that your studies are at least somewhat balanced between quant and verbal.

I hope this helps! Good luck with your studies.

what should i do next... study quant for next 11 days ,complete a month and then jump to verbal... or just jump to verbal

i am confused and i am not sure what to do next as one wrong step may spoil every thing

If you know that verbal is a weakness and quant is a relative strength, then you should tackle the verbal right away. If you haven't already, check out bb's classic post about how to get started on the GMAT: gmat-study-plan-how-to-start-your-gmat-prep-80727.html

In his post, bb suggests starting your verbal prep in the second month, but if you're crappy at verbal, you should start working at it as soon as possible. In particular, GMAT critical reasoning and reading comprehension primarily test your ability to understand texts in a very precise, specific sort of way. If you struggle with those question types, you might just need tons and tons of practice so that you can get used to reading the dense, tricky passages that appear on the test. Yes, reading through GMAT verbal prep books can help, but there's no substitute for practicing with good, official materials.

thanxx to all

today i have taken mgmat test and got quant scoe q-44 with 64 percentile . i had answered 16 incorrect questions.

Also i have heard that mgmat tests are harder and we are definitely gonna chieve more than this on real gmat

So should i expect that i cen get Q 47 on real gmat .
