Anyone have any experience with how scores on the practice tests included in the Test Prep software from MBA.com translate to the actual exam?...I don't think they are adaptive like the real exam, but am unsure how the score would actually translate. I took one over the weekend and did well, but was unsure if it was a realistic approximation of actual peformance.

GMATPrep from MBA.com is the most accurate predictor of your actual GMAT score because (1) it features actual (but retired) GMAT questions, and (2) it's supposed to mimick the scoring algorithm of the actual test.

Anecdotally, I've heard many people report that their score on GMATPrep was very close to the score they ultimately received on the real GMAT.

mschling52, perhaps you are a naturally gifted testtaker, given your performance!

Best of luck!
