I don't remember my score breakdowns for Q or V, but I do have the overall scores for each CAT.

The following represents the scores I received and the order in which I took each CAT. I have included the score I received and the calculation represented by the GMAT calculator.

Kaplan 1: 500 = 600
Kaplan 2: 510 = 610
Gmat Prep: 520 = 500
Manhattan: 530 = 520

I am not trying to get into Harvard, just your average B-school. I need a 550 for admissions.

I always thought Kaplan CAT's were harder, yet my scores don't show that. Any ideas as to where I would score?

By the way, I've noticed everyone disagrees about the difficulty of the CATs. Some thing X is harder than Y, but then others swear it is the opposite. I think GMAT Prep is probably the closest since it is made up of retired questions. There is a second test in it you can do.

Welcome to GMAT club, GMAT Prep is the most accurate measure of performance. also, people clarify a lot, Kaplan has changed their scoring about a year ago or 2 ( can't remember exactly) so 520 Kaplan is now about 520, those are no longer extra hard tests unless you're taking the ones from 3 years ago...
