Hello guys,

I'd like to know if anybody of you here have recently taken veritas prep gmat tests. I have subscribed for their 7 practice tests (got them for around 15€) after looking at a list posted on this website.
I have been getting 730 in the last 3 tests, with the same splits too (Q51 - V39). Now, I'm starting to think if these practice tests scores are accurate enough for me to gain a little confidence. Are they a good representation of the actual GMAT? 730 was also the target score I had set on Veritas' website.

Kindly help me out on this.

Thanks a lot guys and good luck!

P.S : I'm saving up the official GMAT CATs for the final week of prep

Hi,

I would like to tell you that no tests can tell your level as accurately as GMATprep free or paid tests can. So, IMO it is time for you to check your level with different TEST PREP companies' tests i.e., Magoosh, Manhattan, Math Revolution etc, because it will average out your score better.

For Veritas tests, I think their Verbal section is a bit more difficult than actual GMAT Verbal, and scoring is a bit tight.

Hi karthikdetermined,

The scoring algorithm on the Official GMAT is far more complicated than most people realize. Since that algorithm is proprietary, no GMAT company has an exact match for it, thus CAT scores can vary a bit based on the 'biases' involved in their respective designs. While the most realistic CATs available are the 6 from GMAC, the 'blocks' of CATs available from Kaplan, MGMAT and Veritas are all 'close enough' to the real thing that they'll give you a reasonably accurate score assessment (assuming that you correctly use the CAT).

GMAC has publicly stated that the Official Score that you earn on Test Day is within +/- 30 points of actual ability. Assuming a similar 'swing' in how your CATs function, your 3 CAT score results show that you essentially performed the same each time - and these scores are similar to your prior Official GMAT Score (from 4 years ago, which you descried here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/my-debrief-6 ... l#p1323297). Thus, it stands to reason that you're still scoring at the same high overall level as before.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
