Meaningful Princeton Review Cd-Rom Test Result?

Post Mon Feb 26, 2007 9:01 pm
Hi, I have a question about a result on the Princeton Review cd-rom tests. I took test #1, but only completed the verbal section since that is what I am focusing on (there is an option to skip the math section). After I completed the test I received the following read out as my score V:39 M:0 T:360. Does this mean if i were to perform equally well on the math section (360) that I would score a 720 overall? I think it does, but I want to confirm since I answered than 10 questions incorrectly -- they were later in the section. If this result is half way to 720, then the hard work is paying off. If not, then i'm going to beat my head in with all of these books I purchased... I'm concerned only because 75% is not a great success rate...

I then have 3 follow up questions:
1) Does the Kaplan cd-rom work the same way?
2) Can anyone confirm whether the Princeton Review and Kaplan cd-roms are computer adaptive?
3) When you do a practice verbal set, how many on average are you getting right in the set? My range is 70% and 80%, with an 85% occasionally. I alluded to this before -- I would think scoring closer to 85%-90% is necessary for you a 700+ score...

I know that i asked a lot, but i'm struggling to find out where my verbal abilities actually stand at this point.

Appreciate the insight. Good luck to all.

Oops, I didn't read it that closely. Guess I shouldn't post that late at night!!

It's still a good start, though.

I think the 75% the original poster referred to was a percent correct rate. The schools don't get that info - they get the percentile ranking (and, yes, most of the very top schools do want to see 80%+ percentile for each of the subsections, math and verbal).
