Timed preparation and corelation with performance [#permalink]

For lack of enough tests at this point, and given that I have not completed the OG yet or the 1000 series. I have started to time sets of 37 math (20 PS/17 DS) and 41 verbal (abt 15 SC, 14 RC,12 CR). The end goal of course is to get a better hit rate on each section. However, is there any way I can co-relate my performance on these sets to how I might do on the GMAT?

I have downloaded the GMAT prep but haven't done any tests on it yet. I was hoping to finish with the OG before going on to that.

Thanks

Because the GMAT is adaptive, you won't get a reliable idea of what you might score by doing timed sections. You'll know how many you're getting right and wrong, and that's a good start. I haven't actually seen anyone post this idea before. Rather clever, I must say, and better than just doing practice questions!

But I would take a practice test at least once a week during your prep so that you don't find yourself with one week left to get used to a CAT. There are plenty of good tests out there. Between the PR tests and GMATPrep, that's 6 right there. Find the older Powerprep tests and that's two more. Those three sets of the tests are the only ones I recommend; they're the most reliable for predicting your performance on test day.

Thanks yes, I agree, I did not think of that. I don't think idea is original though, comes from the advice of this forum to time everything you do...

Does make sense though to not leave the CAT tests till the end. Will see what I can do to find those tests.

Thanks again.
