GMAT prep score accuracy... [#permalink] New post 16 Mar 2012, 18:19
I'm taking the Kaplan On Demand course, and I've been getting around 610~640 on my CATs.

I just took GMAT prep exams... And one of the scores is quite shocking....

For Practice Test 2 (I took this one first)... I got 470... which is far below my expectation and much worse than the scores I've been getting from Kaplan CATs... I was so shocked to see this score, so I took Practice Test 1 right away, and got 630.

I'm not sure which of these scores I should trust...

How can these scores be so different...?

Has anyone had similar experience?

Very unusual. When you say you took the test 1 right away, you mean the same day or ?

bb,

Yeah, I just couldn't believe the score, so I just took Practice Test 1 like a minute after.

Wow, that is bizarre. The good news is that there is a new GMAT Prep coming very soon (not sure about the date, but probably March/April).

On the other hand, I would use the higher score, it is consistent with your Kaplan one. Not sure what has happened with the first one.
