Here are some question about GRE PowerPrep Practice scores and their impact on the final (actual) GRE score.

Kavitha Asks:

My GRE unprepared powerprep test resulted in 310 Verbal and 610 Math. So after rigorous study for 2 months can result in what score?
Can you please tell me. This question can be answered by anyone who sees my post.
That means everyone would have taken this PowerPrep like me before preparing.
So after preparing how much you have got ?

GRE Power Prep

If you read the article GRE Score Calculator, and other GRE exam experiences in this blog, it will be clear that one’s final GRE exam score will be the average of the GRE scores from Powerprep tests.

However, if you took several practice tests before doing actual preparations, scores may likely vary.

How much can I Improve – GRE Score?

Well, it all depends on how much you prepare and how much effort you put in to study. Initial Power Prep GRE score shows your current potential.

So, amount of score you can get after 2 months is directly proportional to your effort and study methods.

After 1 month if your score is not improving, then you have change the way you study. Student’s usually don’t plan on how to study for GRE.

They follow the same approach they got used to studying for exams. But, you need to have a study plan and stick to it.

Track your progress, only then you can measure your success and improvement.
