Well,

This will be my first post so if it is a bit of a mess I am sorry

First of all I am a little bit confused. Many people say the GMAT Prep tests can give the best forecast of what you will get on the GMAT. To be honest I found them way to easy got 720 on the first one and 750 on the second one

I am also working on the Manhattan Tests and I get scores between 620-650

But what I actually wanted to ask involves the KAPLAN. I got a guide from a Friend which is from 2003... I found the exams in the CD really hard (specially Verbal section) and useful (got only 570:S). However, I would like to know if you would advice me to buy a new version or the CD did not change that much.

As a newcomer what I can mainly say that at least I noticed affects a lot my scores... is of course concentration... specially in the verbal section... If I am tired after work I find it extremely hard to get the right answers especially with large passages... but as I really have a short time frame to prepare try to work hard despite the lack of concentration ...

Welcome to GMAT Club Rollerduck. Good questions.

1. GMAT Prep is the most accurate predictor

2. 2003 Kaplan is about 100 points below what you will get on your test

3. Not sure if the tests have actually changed substantially. I PM'ed a Kaplan representative, he should respond on Monday or possibly earlier

Hi rollerduck,

Our class materials have changed a lot since 2003. The core fundamentals of our strategies are consistent, but in the time since your CD was made we've made tweaks and refinements. Furthermore, changes to the test (such as the introduction of bolded statements) and changes to technology (such as Kaplan's ability to produce fully adaptive tests) mean that you will get a much better learning experience with the newest and most up-to-date Kaplan Materials.

Please let me know what you're looking for, and I'll be happy to guide you specifically to the book, online offering, or classroom course that best suits you.

Eli

There's a possibility one or two of the questions you saw will repeat itself, but the material has changed substantially over that time. _________________ Eli Meyer Kaplan Teacher http://www.kaptest.com/GMAT Prepare with Kaplan and save$150 on a course!
