Hi Guys,

My exam is in two weeks. I took Exam # 3 of the GMATPrep exam pack 1 and got 560. Before taking this test, I took GMATPrep exam 1 and 2. Here's my breakdown:

Exam 1: 610, Q 45 with 16 errors and V 28 with 18 errors
Exam 2: 660, Q 44 with 17 errors and V 37 and 12 errors
Exam 3: 560, Q 39 with 18 errors and V28 with 13 errors

Also, I never scored under 590 (and never got under Q40) in any Manhattan GMAT tests

I felt like the third exam was much more difficult than the two first one. Quant seemed harder, I even had 1 prob and 1 combinatorics questions thrown at me. In the first 2 exams I only had 1-2 prob/combinatorics questions. Verbal also freaked me out. I was surprised that with only 13 errors I would get such a low verbal score in the third exam.

I know that the score is not based on the amount of questions you get right or wrong but on the actual difficulty of the question, however, I just find peculiar that there was a 9 points (HUGE in verbal) difference due to only 1 error !! My quant score does not surprise me as much as have made some really dumb mistakes throughout the exam. I need some advice, should I worry about that 560 ? I know many people here have mentioned that GMAT prep exam 2 is fairly representative of what to expect on exam day, so I am not sure how much importance I need to put on exam 3 and 4. Has anyone else had similar surprises with Exam 3 or 4 ?

Also, should I be doing anything specific 2 weeks before my exam?

Just looking for some insight or advices from experts before I take my official GMAT exam. I just feel so disappointed today. I will be taking exam 4 this Saturday (Oct. 5) and I am hoping to get a better score. Oh and by the way, I am looking for a anything north of 600.

Thank you for your help, I truly appreciate!

No you should not worry about the score rather you should track down your mistakes(ques type,topic etc). In verbal you might have got few easy medium ques's wrong and that costed you with a heavy penalty...

Take away- The kind of mistakes you did in all your mocks should not be repeated in the upcoming mocks.

I just finished the second (4th) exam in GMATprep exam pack 1. This test is more in line, I believe, with GMATprep exam 1 and 2. I score a 650 (Q 44 and V36). Now, here is my complete set of GMATprep tests

Exam 1: 610, Q 45 with 16 errors and V 28 with 18 errors
Exam 2: 660, Q 44 with 17 errors and V 37 and 12 errors
Exam 3: 560, Q 39 with 18 errors and V28 with 13 errors
Exam 4: 650, Q44 with 12 errors and V36 with 15 errors

My exam is in a week (October 12th), with these scored in mind, do you guys have any more advices that could help me maintain this score for the test. I am not looking at improving in the 700 before the test. I am aiming for a score above 600. Also any advices for my verbal score? As you can see it seems to fluctuate between average 28 and 36-37, why is there a huge gap? Hopefully the trend will not continue as my exam is this Saturday. Any piece of advice for my last week would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I got 640 in the end, Q40 and V38. I feel that I could have done better in quant, but that is the way it is. I found that gmaprep exam 4 was in line with the real gmat in terms of difficulty. I also found Verbal easier, or it might just be because I was really focused.
