Hi,

I have been preparing for the exam for a couple weeks now. Tests taken so far:
Gmatprep1: 650(2.5 weeks back)
Kaplan: 720 (last week)
Gmatorep2:700 (this week)
Princeton Review:610 (today)

Weird part is my Princeton review score breakup
Quant 51 (26 correct 5 incorrect)
Verbal 23 (28 correct 8 incorrect)

This score of 610 is the lowest for me so far plus seems weird to me because of verbal score. In my previous tests, I have always scored in the range of 33-40 in verbal. Can it happen that 8 incorrects get me to a low of 23 in verbal? While analysing the test results and my performance, I also checked the difficulty level of the 8 incorrect they were all high level, which makes my suspicion even stronger.

Any thoughts?

It is best to ignore the scores you get in practice tests since they are usually not a true reflection of actual test scores. Trying to guess the actual GMAT algorithm and how well it is replicated in various practice tests is a waste of time. Use the practice test scores to figure out where you make mistakes and review those topics. Repeat the cycle a few times for best results.
