Need some help folks,

I'm getting my @%$ kicked on the Kaplan exams. My test date is next week and I would like to know the best use of my time. I plan on taking my second GMATprep this weekend, two days before my actual test but don't know what I should do before that. I could take more Kaplan tests which are killing my confidence or retake my MGMAT practice tests which I don't remember at this point. Any suggestions?

I started in Kaplan at 540 and hast last one at 680, so don't look at your Kaplan scores as absolute, rather do you see relative progress from one test to another?
you can also download PowerPrep (just google it). Another good source for practice.

BTW I'm taking my test on Oct. 3rd, when is yours? Good luck!

Kaplan tests are terrible. The questions are bad, and the scaling is bad too. I never cracked 670 on a Kaplan CAT, and got a 780 on my first actual GMAT.

d'oh, so looks like I have no chance of scoring over 700 on real GMAT now.

Kaplan sucks. I got fed up of barely hitting 600 on their tests and got 740 in the real one.

I think waiting until the last 2 days to give your gmatprep2 is a mistake - you might want to take gmatprep at least 3-4 times, it's very useful. You can read more in my debrief why this is crucial - a few others did this as well and benefited from it.
