My MGMAT was a lot lower than my official mocks and my actual test performance.

I don't think MGMAT is that reflective of the real thing. Use it as practice but don't stress about the score.

Completely agree with K1, especially for quant. Great for practice, but don’t pay attention to the scores. Use it to understand what types of questions you need to practice more. I scored 100 better on the actual test than my average MGMAT test.

MGMAT is harder and the problems test slightly different things than official test
- The verbal problems felt off, like they were testing the wrong thing. I thought the sentence correction questions were pretty different than the actual GMAT.
- The quant was more difficult than OGMAT, but on par with actual GMAT for the harder parts

Anyway, took the 6 Practice MGMAT (660-690) over a week’s time. Took the real thing the next day and scored 760 points higher.

Would recommend taking MGMAT/ Veritas / Kaplan exams for testing practice with OGMAT practice interspersed to keep yourself grounded to what you’ll likely actually score, since those other test prep companies each are slightly off from the OGMAT

I’ve discovered that the person people think is the data guru on our team has some super creative accounting practices. While they were out on leave, I was asked to take it on. They are now back and keep doing it. Up until my recent promotion, this person was senior to me. Now we are same level, dif tenures. It’s not only wrong but bc they do this to inflate their numbers when we report for the team it obv it has effects. How can I approach this? Today we had a super tense meeting. I’m nervous
