KAPLAN practice test scores [#permalink] New post 15 Oct 2005, 16:55
I have done a couple so far and scored 540 and 550. I am 10 days away from my test date. I usually run out of time by the time I hit 25 in math and 30 in verbal.

How bad am I?
Thanks,
Rianah

Don't panic - Kaplan's math is much tougher than the real thing.

Download the PowerPrep software from mba.com and do a practice test on that. It's much closer to the real thing.

I have taken two Kaplan tests. Both were 100 points lower than PowerPrep. Quant is challenging but is good practice nonetheless. Verbal to me seems quite different from that in OG. RC and CR especially, i felt a lot of the inferences were reached by stretching the argument too far, something OG doesn't do. They seemed more than "necessary extentions of the argument". Does anyone think differently?

Have you taken the Powerprep tests yet? They are said to better reflect your real score. Good luck on your test!!

i am having a similar problem i keep scoring betwenn 550 - 570 on kaplan and i think that they are much harder than the OG PowerPrep or any other tests. i dont think they are representative at all. and some of their xplanations do not make any sense at all especially in CR, where one would have to 'assume something' to get the right answer in a strengthen/weaken quesiton which is ridiculous since we can only infer from the premise given without any extra info that we can 'assume'. i am so mad at kaplan some of their stuff is completely off limits for GMAT representative purposes.

I found the kaplan quants a little bit on the easier side when compared to manhattan.. how are they when compared to actual gmat or even the gmat prep??? Hows their verbal section??? Will practicing them suffice???
