Thanks Guys! I seemed to be getting a ton of repeats from OG 11 on two attempts with the GMAT prep software this week so I stopped the tests ( like 3 out of the first 8 questions). I didn't use the powerprep either. I did however use the both GMATpreps earlier in my studies and saw much improvement ...

I was having an off day when I took the Veritas exam which may explain a lot of my score difference. I knew I was having a bad day and should not have taken an exam. That being said the questions did not seem realistic to me, the format of the questions just seemed different. I did terribly on the v...

The same thing just happened to me.

I'm not very worried about it. But I would be interested in other people's thoughts on Veritas CATS.

Do you happen know if there is any overlap between the Powerprep exams and the OG11 guide?

I am thinking of using them to tune up in my last week before the exam.

Thanks!

Overlap between OG 11 and Gmat prep?

I recently started my 2nd gmat prep practice exam. It was my first after finishing all of the OG 11 quant questions. In the first 8 questions I saw 2 repeats from the OG guide. I was under the impression that GMATprep tests had no repeats from the OG guide. Was that wrong? I stopped the exam and pla...

I took GMAT prep #1 at the beginning of my studies and scored a 41 so I am confident in my verbal skills. But I was still really surprised when I saw that score on the Kaplan test. I have heard some say that their verbal isn't indicative of the real thing though. So I am not putting too much wait be...

Silly Verbal Score

I just took a practice exam from Kaplan and scored a 55 on the verbal section!

Obviously I am pleased but I'm just assuming that it is not a good indicator of the real thing. Is a V 55 even possible on the real GMAT?

Improvement!

Well relative improvement! - I am terrible at math but I am getting better! I have been studying my butt off. I know Kaplan scores aren't indicative of the real GMAT but I figure when compared with themselves they can show improvement over time. 6/7 Q 31 39% 6/17 Q 33 39% 6/26 Q 34 41% 7/3 Q 37 52% ...

Where to target studying? Confusing pratice scores.

I have done practice tests to try and find out where my natural skills are, however, I have been rather confused by the results. I have done 3 practice exams (2 Kaplan, 1 MGMAT): Kaplan 1: 610 (Q33 39%, V44 97%) Kaplan 2: 630 (Q34 41%, V49 99%) ManhattanGMAT: 670 (Q44 73%, V37 83%) Clearly my streng...

Thanks! Just out of curiosity did you find that your score on a paper exam correlated with CAT exams? Also am I correct in assuming it takes a few days to find out your score?

I have taken several CAT practice tests but this will be my first go at a paper one.

Kaplan Diagnostic Exam Question

Hi Everyone-

Has anyone here taken the Kaplan diagnostic exam they give at the beginning of their courses?

- Does it have the AWA section?
- Is it computer or paper based?

Thanks!!
