Kaplan Premier 2008 CD-ROM or Manhattan GMAT Online CATs ?? [#permalink] New post 14 Jul 2010, 10:17
I found info about these CATs by searching the GMATCLUB forum but did not reach any conclusion about how they compare to each other.

I did the GMATPREPs twice, scoring 740/720 on the first time and 750/760 on the retakes, but failed on the real exam (680). I plan to retake the GMATPREPs again for timing management purposes, but my score will be inflated since I already know the questions. So I am looking for new CATs with new questions.

I have read different opinions on both Kaplan and MGMAT CATs. Many people say that MGMAT CAT is much better than the Kaplan's, but I heard that MGMAT CAT Verbal questions do not resemble the Official Questions.

Have anyone tried both ? Could you please share your opinions ? Which one should I choose ? I plan to retake the real GMAT in about 25 days.

Thanks in advance !

I did both.

I found MGMAT much more representative of the real thing. Albeit, more difficult than the real thing, but still closer than Kaplan.

See my debrief (in sig) for more info.

ps 680 is not "failing"

Thanks for the reply Mohater. Nice debrief.

Since I had got 720-760 on the GMATPREPs, the 680 was indeed I failure to me. :( Anyway, hope the next time I will control the anxiety and do better.
