i know Kaplan makes their tests harder to make sure they fulfill their guarantee. So if someone were to take Kaplan's GMAT today and the regular practice test from say MBA.com tomorrow how much of a point differential should they expect?

I took 3 GMATPrep tests and 2 Kaplan practice CAT tests, simulating the test environment as closely as possible. The Kaplan test were taken prior to taking the GMATPrep tests. As you can see the GMATPrep tests were much closer to my actual score. I wouldnt waste much time with tests other than GMATPrep unless you just want to get use to the length of the test.

Kaplan test 1: 630

Actual GMAT: 710

I will second what @jcbaldi has said, don't waste your precious time on poorly written CATs written by test prep outfits. I have rarely see them reflect the real test. Currently there are four official full length CATs from mba.com, start from there.

Cheers,
Dabral
