Hi, How accurate is the old GMAT software, Powerprep?? Considering the CAT format, I did manage to answer less than 10 questions incorrect in the verbal section and still my scores were too low, by too low I mean really really low. But, when I took the GMATPrep, and I did answer more no. of questions incorrectly than in the Powerprep, I managed a score better than the one from Powerprep. Is Powerprep really authentic?
hi just now i have taken powerPrep Test 1 and scored low 610 My recent GMAT Prep Score is 660 and MGMAT is 640. I have to give GMAT in Nov. 2010. Pls suggest me something i feeling too low as i have heard that powerprep is easier compared to other test.I took it too lightly
I have got 15 wrongs in Verbal (SC-11 incorrect RC 2 incorrect CR 2 incorrect).
Yes, I also believe in old powerprep and gmatprep there is difference b/w scoring method. Also, marking depends on difficulty level and as said by BB you shouldn't be bothered by no. of questions you got wrong but use powerprep for extra evaluation.
i have given MGMAT test on 1st Sept / 3rd Sept and i scored 640 (Q-51 V 29)/ 630 (Q50 V 28)respectively. I am working on Verbal Section where i used to fumble.
1) For CR i have almost done with MGMAT(i realized that i was making mistake in assumption questions...MGMAT has been of great help..also i reduced my time devoted per question) 2) For RC i am re-reading MGMAT.I am trying to do 3-4 passages daily,it's bit difficult to stick to this rule.Pls suggest if i am going in the right direction.
3) SC is the weakest area for me(yesterday's GMAT prep i scored 730 SC-8 incorrect) I have studied MGMAT, then also my scores are not moving.One mistake i was doing that i was not practicing question this i will start from today .Any suggestions to improve SC Pls.I have read many posts on this forum stating - studying SC brings substantial improvement.I am following the right book(MGMAT) then also things are not working for me.
For Quants - My weak areas are - 1) number system - jumbled with DS and not PS. 2) Speed issue- for the last 5-7 questions i have to rush like anything.In MGMAT i had cheated by pressing pause button.
For DS, you should know very well AD/BCE, BD/ACE or 12TEN rules. (all are same though, used different notations by different companies!)
If Statement 1 is correct you should know your answer is going to be A or D.
If Statement 2 is correct you should know your answer is going to be B or D.
You shouldn't confuse statement 1 with statement 2 (I do ) solve statements separately, don't use information of 1 statement in statement 2 (except when you have rejected statement 1 and 2 separately!)
You can give a try to Veritas DS guide, if you have enough time.
@ kissthegmat - thanks for your suggestion. I dont have Veritas guide though i have solved kaplan 800,which doesn't have as many questions.I'll search for veritas guide.
@ gurpreet- ya screen resolution changes and powerprep doesn't have huge question bank,you can see a lot of questions from OG.The only thing that made me worried was SCORE i made almost same number of questions wrong as i made in GMAT prep then also there was a huge diff in score.
in Powerprep Q-48(7 incorrect) V-25(10 incorrect).Overall 610.Whereas in GMAT Prep i was 720 and 730. Pls can some one comment over my verbal strategy? Suggestions needed
