Hi All

I discovered this site a few days ago and wish had found it earlier. Damn cool. Am taking the GMAT in Dec this year.

Need a couple of clarifications - if someone can help !

1) Is there a way of relating the number of questions one gets right to the total score. Have been practising on Kaplan and Powerprep. Have noted that the scoring is much more conservative in Kaplan. Why is that so? I got about 64 questions correct on Powerprep Test 1 which translated to a 700 score, however on Kaplan a total of 60 correct translated to a 620, which is very low I think.

2) How many "experimental questions" can one expect on the real GMAT. Is there any method of detecting these questions.

3) Also would like to know about any sites which offer good probability, series, permutation / combination practise.

Thanks in advance...
