    GMAT Scores

    desperate for expert advice

    Real GMAT: 680 (Q49, V34) on 12/Sep,2003

    PowerPrep: 730 on 1/Sep,2003

    Kaplan: 680 on 19/Sep,2003

    I'm working full time in a company and I have a 10-month baby. Not much time to study. I rebooked test on 10/Oct, 2003. Today I did practice of Kaplan, and I'm very frustrated with the score. It seems that I'm not improving much despite of a lot of practice.

    I don't have good access to practice tests. Any good recommendation?

    Don't be frustrated over Kaplan results. My honest opinion is: they're worth nothing. I did the GMAT today with 750 points. Kaplan got me some 600. In fact, I found that some of their answers are wrong, sometimes the underlined part does not match the first answer, etc...

    Powerprep crashed while I was working on it. But I got the scores from math which were actually slightly better than todays. Only Powerprep is like the real thing. Kaplan and Princeton seems to be for people who try to get from 500 to 550.

    Real GMAT: 660 (Q47, V35) SO FRUSRTATED!!!

    (Actually, got so nervous that slept for only 1,5 hrs the night before the test and had 3 coffees to keep me awake during the test. So, had a problem concentrating.)

    PowerPrep: 610 (Q42, V32), 770 (Q49, V48)

    Kaplan: 620, 670

    Crack-GMAT: 555 (Q34, V23), 670 (Q49, V31), 520 (Q36, V14), 680 (Q49, V33), 670 (Q52, V28)

    800score: all above 680. Actually, the quantitative sections are SO EASY that they are no use for any serious practice.

    In my opinion, the best practice tests to take are those in PowerPrep and Crack-GMAT. Unlike Kaplan, Crack-GMAT has 5 really distinct tests with not a single question repeating from test to test. Also, the quantitative section in Crack-GMAT has really good examples. So don't miss this one!
