Would anyone recommend and order in which to take practice tests. I have Princeton, Kaplan, and GMATPrep. I am through the Princeton and Kaplan books and have just started on the OG. I want to start taking practice exams now and am wondering if there are any benefits to taking one before the others.
for me gmatprep was a bit off.. i scored 690 on the first and 710 on the second. i ended up with a 640 on the real test. I think on the real test I might have flopped in verbal since I had been scoring in the 700 range for both Kaplan and GMATprep. Im going to take it again in a month and see how it compares again after i review
I suggest you take PR and Kaplan in pairs, i.e. 1 PR followed by 1 Kaplan.
PR is closer to the real thing. Kaplan is more difficult, but can be used as a tool to practice timing. What's more, if you only do Kaplans in a row, you may lost interest. You'll know what I mean when you start with Kap CAT.
