Kaplan a SCAM! [#permalink] New post 11 May 2004, 14:37
Now I don't mean to be rude to Kaplan but they reproduce the SAME material. I got 1996 course prep and 2001 course prep and the materials are the EXACT same. Then I bought hte Verbal GMAT prep book, and the questions in their are the same ones on the GMAT course book for verbal practice. The practice sets in the gmat course book. Then I took a GMAT practice test the questions they gave are the same ones as in the 2001 Kaplan Book. I dont understand whats so hard about making new questions.

I'm just trying to improve my base with tough Kaplan questions. I wish they'd make new questions and quit scamming consumers. They should add like 30 questiosn each year instead of same materials year after year.

I got some work to do in a practice test i got a 540 on Kaplan, so that means im at low to mid 600's and i want to get into the 700's, so I'm still prepping.

I agree. The Kap 800 contains tons of BS on Sentence correction part. I dont blame Kaplan either, as its 'active' duty is to make money.

Are you serious? I can't imagine they'd use the same questions like that. Most of the books recycle a fair number of their questions every year, but not the whole thing. The 2004 PR CD has a bunch of new stuff because they made their tests harder, so try that one if you don't have it already. Although I think the 2005 stuff comes out next month so unless your test date is imminent it might be worth waiting for the latest stuff.

I found verbal workbook to have only 20% of the same material as on the CD (One or two RC passages), but even that is sad. Obviously, the people who buy the workbook are those who got the BOOK with CD; did not they think it would make some people "unfriendly?"

Not a good approach.
