The score you could get using the PP in a sort of real test conditions replica is really close to the score of the real exam in a test center.

I.E. the PP is a tool that predicts your real score in an almost identical manner.

Hope this helps.

This is good news, I just wish the explanations were a bit better on the practice test. I see that you previously posted explanations, I'll have to dabble in that. Thanks

Hi there!

Recently I hear a lot of complaints about PowerPrep's easy quantitative sections. To what extent is it true? My background is not technical and I'm supposed to score at least 149, yesterday I scored 153 and 154(15/9 & 15/9 corrects) in PowerPreps 1 and 2 respectively. My test is in 10 days, I'm really worried about quant...

Online rumors instead report us exactly the contrary.

The only way to know if the quant is easier or not than before is to take powerprep online plus.

It reflects almost identical to the real test.

Hope this helps.

ps.


Maybe I've not expressed my thoughts properly. I meant that many consider that powerprep does not reflect the real level of GRE Quant difficulty, they say that the actual GRE is much tougher. I took powerpreps and scored 153 - 154 from PP and II respectively. But it's all with great hardships. If the real test is much harder then it scares.

Oh yeah. totally

The real exam is tougher than free software.

But also this assumption could be misleading because during the exam maybe you get nervous or you do have a lot of expectations or your stamina are not at the top and so forth.

These are the same reasons why people during mock exams score 750 and on the real GMAT exam score 670.

The external variables are way too many rather the exam per se that is tougher

Hi Rat Boy,

As @carcass mentioned, as long as you take the test under realistic testing conditions, your score should be accurate. Have you taken any practice exams? Also, what is your goal score?
