HI,

I have taken two Kaplan online practice CATS -
#1. Kaplan Online diagnostic CAT- Overall 540 (q51, v26)
#2.Kaplan online practice CAT -Overall 570 (q 59, v 23)-In verbal section I got first 10 questions incorrect on a row,which lowered down my score

-Could anyone plz tell me weather I am ready for the real GMAT . My aim is 720+ on GMAT to get admitted to my dream school.
- How close are these Kaplan practice scores compared to Real GMAT?
-Any specific suggestion to improve verbal score ( non-native speaker).
-My verbal breakup on #2 practice cat is follows-
verbal- correct (54%)
CR- 6/14 questions, RC- 7/14, SC- 9/13.

Does the GMAT score calculator work for KAPLAN online diagnostic CAT?

I read that the online daignostic tests are adaptive and are unlike the ones on disc.

If the score estimator was based on the disc version, would it reflect the appropriate estimat for the online version?

Hi tarunmsr,

We work hard to perfect our CATs, and we consider them as accurate as we can make them, given the limits of our ability to compare tests to actual Test Day scores. That said, the best way to dispel any doubts is with the real thing--the GMATprep tests from www.mba.com are from the test-maker using real GMAT problems, and so can't be beat (however hard we try!)

I hope this helps!

Regards
