Can anyone tell me what they think about the Kaplan online / Kaplan CD / Manhattan guide online / OG CD practice tests? So far I've taken two Kaplan CD, 1 Kaplan online, and 1 OG CD. I found everything to be consistent except the Kaplan online was much easier and the score was significantly higher. Can anyone tell me which of these practice tests seem most accurate as compared to the actual exam's difficulty and score?
Thanks!

(unfortunately I still need to fix the estimator for Kaplan records since it is using older and newer ones).

I took Kaplan classes and i can tell they helped me a lot in having my 600 score. However, I should have certainly done better if I emphasized on my verbal that was really weak. But I will recommend Kaplan courses.

What is the difference between Kaplan CD and Kaplan Online? I have done a kaplan online practice test, but I got it from a book that gave me 5 free tests. Is this the same online test you guys talk about? Thanks

Hi miguelmick,

I'm not sure what you mean by "Kaplan Online;" did you order an On-Demand or Classroom Anywhere course through Kaptest.com, or are you just referring to the website that you can access through the premier book?

The former courses include 9 CATs, which are not the same as the ones included in the Kaplan Premier package. The latter, however, is the same as the CD--we offer both CD and Website to make sure you have a way to study anywhere you go.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Are the Kaplan Premier CD tests same as the Kaplan tests I see when I log in to the website?

I am talking about the CATs.

I think Kaplan exams are a little vague, and the score might be lower than what you'll expect. I also think kaplan questions are totally different from what you'll see on the actual test!!!

Hi qweert,

Are scores are generally accurate, but we're always working to improve them so it's possible they're a little low.

However, I'm not sure what you mean when you say that Kaplan questions are totally different from questions on the real test. In fact, many of our questions are directly based on real GMAT problems! Do you have any examples of these problems that I can demystify?
