I have been using the book, The Princeton Review: Cracking the GMAT, 2004 Edition. I have taken the following sections from the included CD:

Strangely, the exam application only gave me 45 minutes for the quantitative section and 30 minutes for the verbal section (although it indicated that there were 37 and 41 questions, respectively).

Anyone have any insight into why their test exams (at least the first one) don't offer the 75 minutes expected?

Thanks
Thomas

I am not exactly sure why it doesn't seem to give you sufficient time to answer the questions, that is weird. I too have encountered some problems with PR as well. Just got through taking practice test #3, and all three of the reading comprehension passages were the same from tests #1, #2, and #3. I dont feel like I have gotten a good indication of my abilities as I keep seeing a sprinkling of repeat questions on each test. Oh well.

Anyone else have the same problem? I heard good things about PR in terms of its being a good predictor of how you'll actually do, but I dont know. It seems like their math is easier than other test prep... does anyone know if this is true? Are scores comparable to actual GMAT?

Princetons quants are definitely easier than the actual GMAT. I ripped their quants when ever I gave their exams but got hosed on the actual GMAT. (670 and 730 on Princeton). 630 on the actual GMAT.

Princeton CD has some serious issuses
I have taken 2 CATs and in both I had only one mistake in the Quants section and that too after Qusetion#30. Still they gave me a scaled score of 45!!

I contacted PR's customer support about these issues a few weeks ago....If you're seeing repeat questions, it could be one of two things: you either deleted your previous test(s), or you're taking the tests on different computers. The software is set up to remember which questions you've been given, and as long as you don't delete the previous tests you've taken, and take them all on the same computer, you shouldn't see duplicate questions. If that's not the case for you, then contact customer support - that will get you a lot farther than complaining in the forums!

On the timing issue...if you take each section separately, rather than taking it straight through like the real GMAT, the don't know if they corrected it for later 2004 releases. So I would take the test straight through. Better to do that anyway so you can work on your stamina for test day.
