More Kaplan fun [#permalink] New post 08 Aug 2006, 08:02
I've just registered on this site and will be taking the GMAT in a month. I purchased Kaplan a few weeks ago thinking that all GMAT prep was the same. I took the CAT1 and got a 600, which I now realze isn't too bad after reading a few posts on this board. However, regardless of how I did, everyone seems to think Kaplan CATs are a joke. While this seems to be the consensus on the board, what about the books practice questions or cd practice quizes. Is there any worth in any Kaplan GMAT prep or should I switch while I still have time?

I had the same experience. Last night I got my butt kicked by the Kaplan CAT - a 620 after doing better on the individual practice tests. I couldn't believe some of the questions it asked! I would look at the answers, the steps required to solve, and say "that would take even the brightest person about 5 minutes to solve." It seemed to me the trick was all in knowing how to solve the problem from the beginning, then executing. I just am not at the point yet where I can recognize the best method to solve right away. I would be interested to hear others' replies on this question, as I see a lot on the OG and am considering buying a copy...

you have to realise that Kaplan CATs scores are supposedly 100 or so points less than actual score..
thus getting a 620 is pretty good!

jeg1015, thanks for your reply. How have you been doing on the practice tests? I've just started but want to know what someone else thinks about them so I'm not stuck in the Kaplan bubble.
