Day 22 - PR CAT 2 Analysis - Feelin' Better!
This evening I went through the practice GMAT that I took last Friday to gather data for analysis. I discovered something that both shocked and relieved me:
PRINCETON REVIEW SOFTWARE SUCKS!
After double- and triple-checking the answer key, I found that the PR software made an error in scoring my test. On the quantitative section, PR scored question #2 as wrong when I had in fact scored that question right. Thus, my final result of 690 for this particular practice test doesn't mean shit. Getting a question marked wrong so early in the section brought my score down dramatically (the way the GMAT is designed, it's critical to start off strong to achieve a high score). [Editor's Note: MYTH--please see Day 21] My score is probably skewed down.
Anyway, discovering this error made me feel a lot better today. It's renewed my hope in the idea that I am progressing in my studies.
I only got a handful of questions wrong on each section: 3 wrong in quantitative, 6 in verbal. I've got a new goal: to make sure that I ALWAYS get the first 10-15 questions on each section correct. That's the way to get a 750+!
SUMMARY OF DAY 22 WORK:
1. Analysis of Princeton Review GMAT CAT Adaptive 2, off of CD.
RECAP OF DAY 22 INSIGHTS:
1. Beware of Princeton Review software! It does make errors.
2. All this studying may actually be paying off!
