powerprep scores vs. kaplan scores [#permalink] New post 13 Oct 2005, 00:36

i have been preparing for the GMAT for the last 3 weeks. I took 4 kaplan tests and a diagnostic test. the scores in these tests were in the mid-500s. However, when i took the PP1 i scored 720 and then i scored 730 on PP2.

i have my GMAT 4 days away.

How much do the Kaplan scores and PP scores help in predicting my actual scores.

My SC and CR are still shaky and i feel i just remembered all the sc questions on the PPs.

Please advise. Meanwhil;e i am concentarting on consolidation of fundas that i al,ready know. Also i am looking into error logs for making final corrections.

I encountered similar situations when I was preparing for my GMAT. My Kaplan scores were significantly lower than those for Powerpre (500/600 vs 750+-). My actual score is 700+.

Personally, I feel that the Kaplan tests are not that good. Not because of the low scores, but because the questions were not well put. e.g. there were suspected missing lines in the RC.

However, it is useful to take the Kaplan tests to "season" your mind and build up the mental stamina. But ignore the scores.

Also, I suggest the last full diagnostic test should be taken about 2 or 3 days before your test. Leave the last few days to rest your mind abit. Just lightly go thru the OG, redo those questions that you got wrong before, etc.

Hope this help.

kaplan is way off...i recommend your last test you should include essays so you feel ready for a full length test; take it 3-4 days before.

Do the PR tests as well. They're much closer to the real thing, especially for verbal -- more realistic CR passages.
