Took GMAT today - scored 730 (Q:48, V:42) [#permalink]

I took the test this morning.

As I mentioned in another thread, I'm posting my Powerprep scores here as well. I took one Saturday morning and one yesterday morning.

Powerprep 1: T:710, Q:48, V:39 - after question removal, 22/28 right on quant - first 14 correct, 22/30 right on verbal.
Powerprep 2: T:760, Q:49, V:42 - after question removal, 26/28 right on quant - 13 + 15 wrong, 25/30 right on verbal.

As you can see, I scored right in between the two, and just about identical in the individual breakdowns.

For reference, my other practice scores:
Kaplan 1 - 630
Kaplan 2 - 620

I took both of the Kaplans early on (2 months ago).

Princeton Review 1 - 670
Princeton Review 2 - 670

I took both of the PR's in the last 2-3 weeks.

I have no insightful advice - just practice, practice, practice. If you plan on scoring 700+, I think Kaplan is the best source of studying.

Is all the worry over the quant section warrented?

Or do you feel that it's overhyped?

Thanks,

Congrats man. I got a question for you: I heard that GMAT has changed in the last few weeks. Did you find any significant change in the actual GMAT that you took and the pratice tests(ETS, Kaplan, Princeton)?[color=darkblue][/color]

Obviously I can't say much about the exam - but I will say that I found the Quant section extremely difficult.

Thanks for the details on your scores ; they are really helpful.

I remember our skirmish about them

Congratulations with a great score, man!

Hey carl, one important question. You scored in between you two powerpreps, but when you took the pp, did you recognize any of the questions from the official guide? Important to me because I recognized two questions on math. Thanks. And congratulations.

pkatz - I didn't look at the original guide at all - so the powerprep exam questions were 100% new to me. I did the bulk of my studying from Kaplan. Kaplan practice test scoring is complete garbage - but the quant questions are extremely useful study aids.
