Hi,

I have attempted one more Manhattan gmat CAT full practice test. And scored 620.. Q 43 and verbal 32.
I am getting confused with how to exactly study with this pattern of scoring. I got 680 on Veritas full practice test which I attempted previously.

One thing though, in Manhattan there are 21 questions in Q and 26 in verbal which are of difficulty level 700-800, out of which I got 14 right for Verbal and 7 right for Quant.

Could anybody please help me with the analysis and to decide how should I study further.

Thanks,
Sid

How often should I be taking practice tests? I'm about to do my first practice test tomorrow. Then I'm going to start the MGMAT strategy guides over the next 2-3 months. Should I be doing one a month? One every two weeks?

You want to take practice tests more frequently later in your studying. It is later in your studying that you are more working on your timing and endurance, etc.

Earlier in your studying you are working on fundamentals so it is a good time to do several problems in a row of each type just to learn the tactic. So you might just do a session of rate problems or of sentence correction, etc. Later you will not want to know what is coming so that you can test yourself.

So now you will want to give yourself a chance to make it through most of the subjects before you take another practice test. Maybe that means a month, maybe two months. Or if you have lots of time to work on this it might be less than a month.

Then when you have finished that portion of your studies you will want to take tests at a more frequent rate.

Sorry for the newbie Veritas GMAT Practice Test question. If I logged in, am I able to view the questions and what I got wrong for an indefinite period. Or should I be saving screen shots of everything. I just don't want to lose any of the information.

P.S. I'm super excited with my first GMAT practice score! It definitely gives me hope and now I'm even more excited to get studying!! I just had to share with someone

You do not need to take screen shots. Your results will stay there. I just looked at results of tests from 9 months ago when the new exam was being released. I fully expect that your results will be there next year at this time and probably longer than that.

That is great that you have your first score and some hope to go with it!!! I am glad that you are motivated to get studying!

For the Kaplan practice test, where can we find our individual quant and verbal scores? I see my overall score, but I'm having trouble navigating the dashboard to see me score out of 60 for each subject.

My preparation - 2-3 weeks of just doing practice quesstions from OG. Then wrote GMAC CAT's scored a 300 and 370! Don't really know how to approach this exam. Need a minimum of 600. I've heard a lot about Veritas full course prep(online). Any advice?

We have done extensive testing of our algorithm (using our students' real scores on the official test) and our current standard deviation on our test is in the low 50s (compared to about 30 for the official test). This doesn't mean that the test is that accurate for everyone, of course, but overall, the algorithm output is fairly close to that of the official test.
If any one scores a 700 on MGMAT does it mean that they will have more chance of repeating the same in Actual Gmat ? considering ur standard deviation?

I did private tutoring with both Veritas and Manhattan. I have to say I think Manhattan is significantly better. Veritas did not even provide me with the OG 13. And I paid close to $3,000 for a private tutoring package. Manhattan is slightly more expensive but I felt my experience with them was significantly better.

Hi,

I have taken a couple of tests, 2 on GMATPrep and 3 on Manhattan. Although my scores on GMATPrep are around 690, the scores on Manhattan were significantly lower(around 600). Could you please let me know why there is such a difference and which would be a better indication of where what I would be likely to get on the actual GMAT?

Thanks,
Jayant
