PR Practice Tests

Post Sat Jul 22, 2006 7:43 am
I have completed a few Princeton Review (Crack the GMAT CD)practice tests and find that score is much more dependant on the first ten questions than the overall % of questions that I get correct. For example on my third test (V:41 M:40 T:650) I answered approximately 73% of the questions correct. On my fourth test, I asnwered an average of 84% correct but my score was down to 610.

So the question is, on the actual GMAT, are the first 10 questions as crucial?

Hi jtsgmat:

Please check out the "How the GMAT finds your score" series in the Ask Manhattan GMAT forum area. I think you'll find this series useful...

Best of luck!
