Hi All,

Wanted to share my experience and see if anyone has had a similar experience or has any advice for me. First some background, on Manhattan CATs I was scoring between Q42-Q44. I have always found Manhattan quant to be extremely difficult. After I exhausted all Manhattan CATs, I moved to the GMAT Prep tests, and score a surprising Q48 on both. Due to this, I was feeling very confident going into the real exam. However, on exam day, I scored a Q42. It was a weird experience, as it felt hard throughout, and I genuinely thought I was in the Q46 range. I saw 4-5 really obscure geometry questions that I was not confident with, so maybe I just got unlucky? I am scheduled to retake again in a month. What is everyones thoughts? Did I just get really unlucky on this test? Did I maybe get a string of wrong answers at the end that really crushed me? How should I prep going forward?

Always have the attitude of not letting any questions slip - especially ones you feel you are capable doing.

Cover your basis - each test only has 37 questions - so it's not possible for those 37 questions to test you on every possible math topic. But if you happened to get tough geometry questions when you previously did not get any from GMATPrep - well, better luck next time. Just make sure you cover everything you can and put your best foot forward.
