moders, can you please move it to the relevant folder?
I took Kaplan
's course while ago and here is my knowledge:
-CATs that come with the course are almost (if not actually) identical to what you would get on the CD
-However, scoring algorithms are DIFFERENT! CD CATs are some 50 points off whereas course CATs are NOT! I know this is not what one would want to hear...
If I were you, I would make sure that I take official GMAT 1 month after the course. Why? 3 weeks of that month you will go through OG12
) and GMATPrep (3x each test). In the last week I would just review my mistakes.
Spending sufficient time on official sources are way more important than any course.
btw, I would not worry about that dip in score. After 3-4 CATs you get burned out a bit. Most people go through this stage.
