I think its fair to add 100 points to the score you get in KAPLAN tests.

Hi MA466,
500 on kaptest is good achievement. many 700+ scorers have scored in 500-600 range.

try this link:

But don't take it too seriously.

My observations are a bit different. Indeed kaplan tests tend to give much lower scores than the real thing. However the difference increases when you have score around 600 - 650 and decreses when you have less. That is, you can safely add about 100 points to your kaplan score when it is 620 - 650, but you can only add about 30 to 50 points when you have less that 550. One additional note is that kaplan quantative tests are NOT harder then the real thing ( assuming you aim at 48-50 ). The verbal part is much harder and I would say not really representative.

My experience was the opposite. I scored two 720s and a 730 on my later KAPLAN CATs, and ended up w/a 680 on the real test.

I would score 99th %ile in verbals, but ended up with 90th %ile on the real test; I scored in the upper 80's/low 90s on the quants, but ended up scoring in the 70th %ile on the real test.

I just found your previous post. The Kaplan tests that you did are not
those tests everybody is talking about. You did the CATs from their official course while we mean those 4 CATs from the Kaplan CD. And from my own and many others experience if you constantly get 630+ on these CD tests , you will surely get 700+ on the real thing.

I got between 500 and 550 the first 4 Cat tests then "resat" them a month later and scored 600-630 and scored 730 in the real thing a week later.

If you are getting 600+ you are home and dry.
