MGMAT CAT - Verbal Questions

Post Sun Oct 21, 2007 6:15 am
Does anyone find the verbal questions on the free MGMAT CAT a little strange?

I just took a practice test and scored only 35 in verbal..I'd previously scored 44 on powerprep...and verbal is meant to be my stronger point. I normally get at least 90% correct doing practice sets on OG.

I haven't had time to thoroughly review my mistakes yet but having skimmed through one or two of the explanations, I actually disagree with some of their answers.

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts?

Run some searches on the pasts posts on this topic. I seem to recall some discussion on this very issue a few weeks/months ago...
