well,
i took princeton review prep test yesterday and scored 510(quantative 41,verbal 22) as the princton review site hung and when i refreshed 3 questions were skipped(which was later considered as unanswered)
my problems
i had problem with verbal timing(i had to hurry in last 10 questions ,in verbal i had 5 minutes left)
I got only 50% right in sentence correction (i have read more than 5 books and in fragment i normally do better....but when it comes to real timed test ...i normally get SC wrong...)

my questions
In quantative,i got only 5 wrongs/37 (41) and i found that it was not in sequence and not in earlier part of the test ....but i never got so called 700 level question and end up with 510.
so is it all that verbal score that has ruined it or i got very easy questions?
is princeton review really CAT?
and
what are experimental question as they say it? (they say score of experimental is not considered)
does that mean that all the 5 question i got wrong were not experimental and i end up with 41 only?

2)q-41 and v-22 score 510
i agree v score was very low but was there any share of unanswered question (ok computer hung and skipped q 38-39-40) but i answered 41 right....
so it is said that unanswered is taken more severly than wrong....
was i penelized for unanswered ones...?

my verbal scores in others have been from 26-29.So that has been big problem.Still tryig to improve...

any suggestion and any questions to above question

what should i do next?
i have been preparing a lot and seems like this is it i can do for now....(i cannot go on whole life just preparing for gmat)

thanks

It is hard to compare the Princeton Review version of the test to the real thing - they may use a different algorithm altogether. The 5 mistakes resulting into q41 sounds a bit harsh but I am not sure how the scoring in PR tests works.

You are penalized 3 percentile points for leaving a question unanswered, so for 4 questions you will be penalized 12 percentiles.

thanks....
actually when i made 5 mistakes and got 41 after preparing for so long i was shocked....and have no idea what i can do ....3 out of 5 i made mistake on was difficult question atleast to be done with in 2 minutes may be for me (when i saw it in real exam for first time)...so i guessed...
so i really dont have any idea what to do...
but i confess most of quantative section questions were bit easier than any other test and was suprised to see question level not raising even my first 6 answers were right ....(and there were no continous errors)

ok could you please clarify if i was able to attempt those 3 and may be get 2 answers right ...what might have been my score....
or would my score have been changed if i was able to attempt all those questions and got them all wrong...
510+?

final what are experimental questions?
(i got 5 wrong and got 32/37 and still 41 not experimental questions there...how does it works?)

thanks

i am planning to take test from another company...lets see whats on
