Do you guys think that these tests are harder than the real GMAT test?

Hi Marc.,

Since your overall score goal is so modest, you could very easily hit that score (or higher) on your scheduled Test Date. You also won't have to correctly answer ANY questions that you think are too hard or too weird. As such, you can (and should) 'dump' any question that feels too tough. You can use the time that you save from quickly dumping those hard questions to double-check your work on the 'gettable' questions that you face. You really just have to keep the little mistakes to a minimum on those questions AND get a fair chance to see (and respond to) every question in each section. Given some of your prior CAT scores, hitting your goal score should be a fairly straight-forward process on Test Day, but you will have to do the necessary work to EARN those points.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Thanks Rich,

As you said I think I better 'dump' any question I find tough and spend more time on easy ones and make sure I 'get' them.
So basically, you're saying to guess on questions I find tough. You mean that I don't have to waste time on those tough questions, instead guessing and moving one would be a good way to handle them. Right?

Hi Rich,

You're probably right about the fact that taking so many tests as I've been taking is rarely beneficial. Indeed, my scores have been declining since the last scores that I have posted. Here there are since then: 410, 330, 310, 430, 420. They are all from Veritas Prep.

I scheduled my test for March 16.
