must have fixed their scoring system because my score was almost identical to my Kaplan
scores. I had 740, 740, 760 and 760 in my four Kaplan
CATs and 760 in the real GMAT. I thought my Kaplan
scores were a bit inflated though because I did all the questions in the Kaplan
book (some of them show-up on the CAT) and on the advanced kaplan
book. I think Kaplan
's quant is actually bit easier than the real gmat -- I mostly never missed a question on the Kaplan
CATs -- but routinely got 3 or 4 wrong on the GMATPrep exams. I got 8 or 10 wrong on the MGMAT quant exams -- but that's a story for another day! Kaplan verbal
questions -- especially SC and RC -- are excellent.
I am taking my first official GMAT on Sat Sept 10th. Just finished the basic "in class" Kaplan course
on a twice a week basis.

I still have three weeks to go and my goal is a 720. I also came across the score calculator on this website and have read on other forums that Kaplan
's CAT's undervalue the scores by as much as 100 points. Not sure if this is accurate. Any feedback is appreciate.
