I have taken two of the practice tests in the Super Power Pack (PDF form) and scored very high on the verbal (165 and 164, respectively). My quant has been eh (152 to 159, respectively) on the PDF practice tests. I took PowerPrep today and only got 160 on verbal (somewhat lower than expected) and 158 on quant (around what I would expect given the last PDF test had me at 159). Is verbal generally easier in the PDF practice tests than in PowerPrep? Or am I just crossing my fingers that I had an off day when it came to verbal? PowerPrep 1's verbal seemed a lot more confusing to me than verbal sections on Magoosh and the Super Power Pack practice tests. What has been everyone else's experiences here? Thank you all in advance!
Last year I took a free practice test on CrunchPrep (before doing any study for the GRE) and got 147V / 155Q / 4.5AWA. I was going to start studying then so I could take the GRE pretty early and get it out of the way, but didn't really end up doing that. Aside from studying a little bit of vocab on and off with the Magoosh app, I haven't done much yet. So I just took another diagnostic practice test to double check where I'm starting at again using one of the free PowerPrep ones. Interestingly, I got 156V / 154Q on that one. My Quant obviously is about the same on both but my Verbal on the PowerPrep one is surprisingly higher. I'm wondering if anyone has done the PowerPrep AFTER doing their studying and shortly before taking the real test and how good of a prediction it was of your real score. Ay feedback on how either of these tests compared to your real scores would be appreciated! I'm just trying to gauge how heavily exactly I need to study for Verbal since there's a big difference in the two practice tests.
Hi everyone, I just started today to prepare for the GRE test and I've completed a mock test with PowerprepII. I was wandering if anyone could explain to me the scoring system of the GRE and of the program itself. I don't understand how the program tells me I got a score of 130 (the minimum i believe?) if I answered more than 70% correct in the verbal and quantitative sections....any ideas? You can see a screenshot of the score here: Thank you for your help! Tom
I am a junior and I want to start studying for GRE. I think I'm going to use Powerprep. My question is, are the practice test questions on powerprep identical to the actual questions you take on the test? The reason I ask is this because, I have a good memory which is good, but also can work against me because on the comprehensive and quantitative, I start memorizing the answer to the question, instead of really knowing them. So if the test questions are not identical to the practice test, then obviously my ability to memorize answers won't help me at all. Memorization should help me on the vocabulary section, but definitely not on any other section since I won't really know how to come up the answer myself if I don't recognize the question. It's not that I'm lazy or stupid for that matter. But I took the practice test and I checked the answers on the ones I got wrong and retook the test and just after one viewing I knew the right answer to pick. So it's not like I'm purposely trying to go this route, but if it can help me get high scores, then I won't fight it. Appreciate any feedback! Thanks!
