Should I Buy The Kaplan CAT Tests? [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2012, 10:50
I finished the 6 MGMAT CAT tests. I need about two to three more CATs before my official test. My first preference is the Kaplan Tests.

I know I can get a Kaplan Test for free and a pack to 5 if I buy the Kaplan Premier book.

The first question is, does the Kaplan Premier provide access to the Kaplan Adaptive Learning Technology tools? My guess is the answer will be NO. If that is the case, am I better off with one free Kaplan and one MGMAT test, available after a reset?

Your suggestion will be highly appreciated.

If you are looking purely for practise and not for scoring, you can try the following free tests
- Knewton
- Princeton Review
- Kaplan
- Veritas Prep

I bought the Kaplan book and got the 6 tests. However, I am unsure if they are adaptive. Have you tried GMATPrep? you get 2 tests there and its the most accurate as it is prepared by the GMAT creators

AbihJ,
I looked into the post comparing different CAT tests. It looked like MGMAT and Kaplan tests are best. That's the reason I wanted to go for the Kaplan Tests. Thanks for pointing out the options!

I found the 9 Kaplan CAT tests to be very representative of the actual test. Their scoring is very solid, and they're tracking of your answers & timing is great. I would highly recommend them.

Note: I used the Kaplan On-Site class and it came with the 9 CAT tests. This was about 6 months ago

wallstreetbarbie,
I did take the two GMATPreps. I think it's a good idea to wait for the new official one. It will have the option to purchase more tests and evaluate strengths. Thanks for reminding about this!
