Best Practice Tests?

by Takrim » Fri Sep 11, 2015 9:45 am
I have recently sat for my first practice test on Veritas Prep. I am little confused regarding the score I got and how the scoring was done. I have attached a snapshot showing the result and marked the part in red circle where my confusion is in. Shouldn't I get a higher percentile on verbal part based on the number of questions I got right?
Please share your view.

The scoring algorithm isn't predicated solely on the number of incorrect vs number of corrects answers. The difficulty level of the questions you answer correctly or incorrectly is also taken into account, so it's possible to answer the same number of questions correctly on two different tests, but end up with significantly different scores. For more details on how the algorithm works, see here: https://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2013/07 ... ice-tests/

The best practice, IMHO, is using real test questions written by the real test authors: GMAC. Even if the tests are outdated and on paper...they're still the best. Third party material is a dilution (of quality) that occurs by attempted mimicry of source material and real algorhythm. Third party material may be great for practice, but NO substitute for using the real stuff.

BellCurves has awesome Math Material (not so keen on their verbal) and their tests are quite good as well.

Hi all, maybe this question was asked too many times but I feel confused.

I got scores from prep tests as below;

GMAT Prep1: 570
GMAT Prep1 Again: 610
Princeton: 570
Gmat Prep2: 580
Kaplan: 640
Veritas: 590

My exam is soon, very soon, which score band I should expect?

The GMAT Prep tests are, historically, the most accurate predictors of how you'll perform on test day. (And note that resetting the tests and taking them again, will often lead to inflated scores as you're likely to see repeat questions. ) Of course, some test-takers benefit from the additional adrenaline/focus of the real thing and perform better, while others struggle with anxiety and see their scores drop. Because you can cancel your score, the only harm in taking the test before you're ready is incurring the cost of the exam and sacrificing a few hours. So, unless you're trying to decide whether to take the test, worry less about predicting the score, and more about how you can use your old exams to cultivate some strategic adjustments that might improve your performance on test day.

I agree with David: Your score, if you took it after that GMAT 2, will likely fall between 570-610...If you want it higher, look and see what your'e not getting right, identify patterns in how you answer, and then do your best to eliminate those go-to answers that simply aren't correct.

Manhattan over Kaplan (the ones i've tried) just because the test seems to be better thought through + it gives you the explanations very clearly. Manhattan ftw wooot wooot!
