I'm pleased , well adequately so

Verbal - 700
Quantitative - 740
Abstract - 640
Decision Analysis - 710

Av. 697.5

Tad peeved I missed 700 by so little, but hey, I guessed at least a third of Quantitative (we're talking not even reading question guessing) and it was my highest score!

It must be, since almost everyone on this thread's found the same thing, and when I tell you it was bad guessing, I mean my thought process consisted of ----oooh, pretty number, let's pick that one/i picked B last time, so let's make this one D, now next question----

good luck, you'll be fine

Well done Nice consistent scores and a good average too
I reckon some of the scoring may be based on how long you take to answer the questions, seeing as so many people (including myself) guessed some of the QR and still got quite high scores?

for everyone who's yet to do it, i really recommend guessing the remaining answers when you end up with about 30s-1minute left! I managed to complete the verbal, abstract (though i had no idea with lots of these so that made me faster i think, just guessing which set it would look best in!) and decision analysis, but only did about 70% of the quanititaive reasoning before i had to guess, and i still did ok!

I got:

VR - 790
QR - 690
AR - 680
DA - 740

2900 total/725 avg.
Wow. Congrats

well done on the VR...i'm asking everyone this; were the passages as long as the ones on the full length practice?
i can't remember the practice qs, but i had some passages that were literally as long as the screen, and then i had one that was only a paragraph (8-10 lines). most were half to 3/4s of a screen length i think, but i guess they just give everyone some long + some shorter ones?
