Lisa I hope that this gives you hope. I can't speak from experience because I have not taken Kaplan
practice tests. But many students that have scored in the 600's even low 700's have similar Kaplan
scores. To many people posting here, the Kaplan
tests are more difficult than the real thing. And to answer your question, no 550 is not a horrible score. However, considering your Kaplan
score, I believe that with some work you can do better than 550 on the real thing. What will be required is dilligence and a positive attitude. Good luck!!!
