Knewton vs Manhattan vs Final GMAT:Comments on Knewton score Sun Apr 08, 2012 2:40 am
Dear Mates,

Following are my results from 06 Knewton Complete Exams.

Past exam reports Quant Verbal Total
Diagnostic GMAT 41 30 580
Practice GMAT #1 44 28 600
Practice GMAT #2 45 30 620
Practice GMAT #3 42 24 550
Practice GMAT #4 41 30 580
Practice GMAT #5 42 32 600

I have 2 questions

1. Do you think that I am ready to take final GMAT Exam or I should prepare more.

2. Is the difficulty Level of Final GMAT EXAM same as Knewton Exams ?

Recently I took MGMAT CAT # 02 and got following results.

TYPE SCORE ESTIMATED PERCENTILE RANK
Quantitative 46 79%
Verbal 33 69%
Total 650 84%

Why is so much difference Between Knewton and MGMAT scores ??

Hi Furqan,
I knewton's scores' are little screwed. Even if u make 3 or 4 mistakes in the quants, you may get somewhere around 44-46. Donot focus on the score much, but focus on the content. U seem to be scoring around 650. I believe u can score in between 650-680. If your target score is somewhere in between this, then you are ready. Hope that helps.

on the Newton CATs i scored

610
600
660
710
680

my quant scores were all over the place... really strange, but my verbal scores were consistently between 40 and 42

now compare that with my two GMAT PREP CATs and the ACTUAL GMAT

GMAT PREP 1: Q48, V40, 710 (took the week after the 660 on Newton)
GMAT PREP 2: Q49, V42, 750 (took the week after the 680 on Newton)
ACTUAL GMAT: Q47, V41, 710 (took 3 days after last GMAT prep... was very sick.. see my debrief)

long story short... i think that the quant scores are lower for Newton, but the verbal scores were pretty reflective of the official practice tests and the real thing

i am going to retake on 5/2, bc i need to get it out of my system... i could have done better if i wasn't ill
