Hi Everyone,

I am not sure if I should re-schedule my exam or not. I am scoring between 510-580 on GMAT prep software and the school I am applying to requires 550. I just did the Princeton Review test online and got a 470!!!! Q33,V23. Even though I got 12 incorrect in Q how did I get Q33??

I am sooo confused... I took one week off from work to study intensively but now I don't even know if I should take the exam next week or not... and I need to make a decision today because as far as I know if you re-schedule your exam in less than 7 days before the exam date - you kiss goodbye to your 250 bucks

What do you think?? What would you do if you were in my place????

I think that you're fine. Take the test as scheduled. The most accurate predictor of your actual performance is the GMATPrep, and your scores from those indicate that you're capable of earning a 550.

I've read that the scores from the Princeton Review CAT's decrease rather quickly compared to the GMAT. Also, the GMAT has a number of experimental questions that don't count towards your score. Test simulations from outside sources (Princeton Review, Manhattan, Kaplan, etc.) don't have those question types.

GMAT Prep is the best. Spend your time wisely for now - 470 to 550 is 80 points and that's doable. What are you using to study?

During my exam preparation I used OG 11 and the OG Review Verbal (as my weakness is the verbal part). I also used the Quantitative with Kaplan Math Review. This week I focused on doing GMAT tests - 2 full GMAT tests a day and after I work on the questions that I got wrong.

I will trust the GMAT Prep software, as you said... I am going for the GMAT next week, final choice!! Worst comes to worst I will still have time to re-take the exam before the application deadline (which is Oct 2010)

Thank you bmillan01 and bb... It's good to get a response when you are desperately seeking for an advise
