Free Kaplan CAT [#permalink] New post 03 Oct 2010, 20:15

I was wondering whether the free Kaplan CAT that is offered online by Kaplan is at all representative of the CATs that are offered as part of the Kaplan Premier package? I thought I read somewhere that the free CAT is not adaptive. I am curious because I would like to purchase Kaplan Premier to get access to those CATs as I have already run through all of the CATs from MGMAT and Knewton. According to this site, Kaplan's CATs are the next best.

However, I thought taking the free CAT was very similar to taking a stroll in the park on a warm summer day. I finished with a 41 in quant, (85%,) and a 43 in verbal, (96%,) for an overall score of 660. (I feel like the overall score is off as I'm pretty sure anyone scoring in those percentiles is scoring higher than 660.)

Anyway, I would very much like to purchase the Kaplan Premier product, but if the CATs are going to be similar to the free CAT then I think its going to be a waste of money because the free CAT felt way too easy compared to the actual GMAT. Any thoughts?

Also, is there any way to purchase just the CATs? Do I have to purchase the Kaplan Premier book to get access to the CATs?

Please see this thread:

You can typically get one free test from each of the prep companies, and there are 6 tests available from GMAC content (between the 2 versions of GMATPrep and PowerPrep).

You don't need to buy anything for the free tests. Some companies (such as MGMAT) offer a 6 test package, which can also be obtained through buying any one of MGMATs books.
