I’ve gotten a 750 (47V/47Q), 720 (44V/46Q), and 760 (46V/48Q) on the GMATPrep practice tests I’ve taken thus far. I’m aiming for 750+. I honestly have felt a bit like I’ve been flying by the seat of my pants as I’ve been taking these tests (though I’ve been taking them strictly under testing conditions, timed, no calculator/study materials etc.), and yet when I go back to review I’ve only gotten one question right out of all three tests that was purely out of luck. I also seem to be getting roughly the same number of questions correct (25/37, 27/37, 26/37 for Quant and 37/41, 36/41, and 37/41 for Verbal) each time.

On the other hand, I took an MGMAT test under testing conditions and did significantly worse than my GMATPrep tests (700, 40V/44Q). Quite honestly it felt like each math question had an extra step required to solve it and the general style and aim of the Verbal questions were starkly different from those of the GMATPrep tests – so much so that I honestly hesitate to take any more of them, because I don’t want to mess up my internal “GMAT Verbal compass,” so to speak (though it does seem like it could a valuable weighted bat tool for Quant).

All this to say – should I ignore the MGMAT score take the test in the next two weeks if I want a 750+?

Quant on the MGMAT is tougher as compared to the GMATPrep tests as you rightly mentioned. From my experience, scores tend to go down on the first MGMAT, I suggest you should take another MGMAT after a day or two once you analyze the test, I'm sure your score would likely go up. The accuracy and the scores are fantastic, I reckon you'll do great in 2 week's time.

You should trust your GMATPrep scores far more than any other scores. It sounds like you're in the 740-760 range right now, so if you took the test tomorrow, you'd have a good chance to hit your target, as long as you perform the way you normally do. I think in your position, you'll find it easier to raise your Q score than your V score (even if the V score looks lower, it's actually much higher in percentile terms, which is really what matters), so if you were going to do any further prep, that's where I'd suggest you focus. Good luck!
