Kaplan tests [#permalink] New post 29 Sep 2005, 07:24
I have been doing some of the Kaplan tests and as a rule have been following the score estimator to determine where I am at.

I think the score estimator is the best tool for seeing where I am at, however from getting 2 questions wrong I have lost 50 points between tests. Does anyone know how the Kaplan tests are scored? Why does getting 2 questions wrong drag the scrore down by 50 points?

Also I am runnning out of these any need something similar to keep me informed of if I have gained the extra 20-30 points I need before I take the real exam.

Thanks

Don't use the Kaplan tests to try to predict your score...they are well-known for being a lot harder than the real thing and can underestimate your score by 50-100 points. The official tests and the PR tests are much better indicators, and are more representative of the real thing. Have you taken any of those yet?

I have not done any of the Powerprep exams. I have only done some Kaplin and I have taken into account that they are harder and scaled but I did 2 exams, got almost identical raw scores but the scaling brought 1 down by 50 points from the other. I don' think they work like a real CAT does as there are some hard questions up front and mixed all the way through.

I have a couple of weeks before the exam and I need an extra 30 points to be comfortable and I am having trouble getting them.
