Kaplan CAT vs Knewton CAT [#permalink] New post 16 Oct 2013, 17:17
On my Kaplan CAT, I receive a decent Quant score (42 and 38) and bad Verbal score (28 both times).

Yet on the Knewton CATs, I receive a bad Quant score and a good Verbal score (38 V).

Can someone explain this? Overall I'm stuck in the 560 range, but If I combine the (best) Kaplan Quant and Knewton Verbal scores, I could easily bump up my score by 100+.

Anyone have experience with this? I would appreciate any response. I'm starting to freak out as I'm writing the GMAT in a week!!

Every test company has a different scoring algorithm, if you review, note down and understand your mistakes and work on them for the next 15 days you will see improvement anyways.

Dont get bogged down about mock scores.Why dont you try gmat prep?

I did the first GMAT prep back in July and scored a horrible 510 and my improvement has not been good since. I will redo the GMAT prep 1 again and hopefully break the 600 barrier. My goal is to score 680 on the real GMAT. I still have 2 Kaplan CATs, 2 Knewton CATs and 5 MGMAT CATs left. I feel I am weaker on Quant but somehow I keep doing decent on Kaplan Quant but horrible on Verbal, even though I do fine on practice Verbal questions.

Im just confused because Im not sure if Im weak in Quant or Verbal since one CAT says im weak in Quant and the other says Im weak in Verbal. Not sure which one to go with.

Don't worry about Knewton CAT scores. I took all the (6) CATs and never got over 680 and 45 in quant (even with only 3-4 mistakes). On the GMAT I ended up scoring 720 with 48 in quant...
