How does GMAT scoring work?

Many Students thinks how  the test is evaluated and GMAT Score work  some believe that the first 15 questions are critical, others believe hard questions must be answered correctly in order to get a good score, and another group believes that all questions are answered should be a high score.

Reason for Experimental questions/Unscored questions on the GMAT

Estimate the difficulty of the questions included in future trials. Questions about the GMAT test changes each calendar month, or every 30 days - so you can take the test only once every 31 days. Since GMAT is an adaptive test, a whole series of new questions that GMAC needs to develop a monthly basis and to understand one of the hardest things to develop new questions, how difficult / easy they are. To resolve this problem, about 20-30% of the questions that you are seen on the experimental test questions (for use on future tests) that GMAC to try and measure the degree of difficulty. This is one reason the test takers when suddenly alarmed, they get a simple question, after a ride, which could mean they missed the previous question, but in reality just got served an experimental question not yet assigned a difficulty level.

   Measurement and quality adjustment issue - regardless of the difficulty may be a question still of poor quality - that is, it does not measure performance fairly well, has multiple interpretations, or confused answers. After questions about the experimental verification GMAC weed them and ensure that the issues that matter close to perfection, the accuracy and consistency of the race rises to 5 years.

   Eliminate controversial issues. Some issues can be controversial or inappropriate in some cultures or parts of the world.

Analysis of an Issue

This section should analyze the issue presented and explain your view of it. There is no "right" answer. Instead, you should consider various aspects, as you develop your own position on the issue.For analysis on a section, you should analyze the issue presented and explain your views on the matter. There is no right answer. Instead, you should consider various perspectives. Use relevant reasons or examples from their experiences, your observations, or reading to develop your own position on the issue.

What is Measured
The analysis of a problem tests your ability to explore the complex issue or opinion and possibly take a position that is informed by your understanding.

Sample Questions
"People often complain that products are built to last. We believe that the products wear out fairly quickly wastes both natural and human resources. What we see, however, is that such manufacturing practices keep costs down for consumers and stimulate demand. "
What do you find most persuasive appeal of the products do not last or the response to this? Explain your position using relevant reasons and / or examples from your experience, your observations, or reading.What do you find most persuasive appeal of the products do not last or the response to this? Explain your position using relevant reasons and / or examples from your experience, your observations, or reading.

Sample Answer
The following example of the paper will receive the highest rating:
Many people believe that the products are not built to last, and similarly, many natural and human resources wasted. On the other hand, noted that such manufacturing practices keep costs and thus stimulate demand. In this lecture, we favor the former statement and refuting the latter statement.
Products are not designed to keep wasting much of the natural and human resources. The exact amount of waste of natural resources depends on the particular product. For example, in the automotive industry in Yugoslavia is a classic example of low-priced vehicle that was not the last. Since the average Yugo had (not "have" because there is no longer!) A life expectancy of two years and 25,000 miles, was a terrible waste.
The automotive industry standards today WARRANTY create vehicles for about five years and 50,000 miles. By making cheap Yugo that last half as long as most cars are GUARANTEED Yugoslavia producer is wasting precious natural resources. These resources could be used by Ford or Toyota to produce Escort or Tercel that will last twice as long, reducing the use of natural resources by a factor two.
Human resources in this example is waste. On the production side, manufacturers of a poor car quality, such as Yugoslavia, have no personal or professional satisfaction from the fact that their product is the worst car in the U.S.. This knowledge adverse effects on the productivity of workers in Yugoslavia.
In contrast, workers at the Saturn plant constantly receives positive feedback for successful products. Saturn is proud of its reputation for quality and innovation that can be seen in the recent massive recall to fix a defect. This withdrawal is done so well that the image of Saturn was actually enhanced. Had a recall took place in a factory Yugo, the poor would be even worse.
Another factor in human resources is the reaction of consumers. A large proportion of human resources have been wasted by Yugo owners await the dreaded crane to appear to pull away Yugo carcass. Any vehicle owner who is unsure of his / her vehicle efficiency of 7 in the morning, as he / she can go to work, sees a great despair. This is a huge waste of human resources for the consumer.
While conscious consumer waste of natural and human resources in a poor quality, so does the manufacturer. People who argue that low quality manufacturing processes maintain low costs for consumers and thus stimulate demand should look at the example of Yugoslavia. In mid-1980, Yugoslavia was by far the cheapest car in the U.S. to $ 3,995. In 1991, Yugoslavia was no longer sold here and became synonymous with the word "lemon".
