Suggestions needed on raising practice test scores... [#permalink] New post 24 Oct 2006, 19:16
I'm taking the GMAT in 3 weeks.

I'm currently enrolled in a Kaplan course. I'm taking the GMAT one week after the course ends. I work 7-6pm Mon-Fri. The class is 3hrs/night, 2 times/week.

I've taken the Kaplan diagnostic and the first online Kaplan CAT.

Diagnostic: 630 (35Q, 42V)
CAT #1: 630 (37Q, 42V)

1) Any idea how similar Kaplan diagnostic and CAT scores normally translate to the actual GMAT? Is there any relatively normal translation scale, or do actual GMAT scores completely vary from the Kaplan tests?
2) What would be the best way to improve my scores given the limited time I have left before taking the test? (It looks like quant is where I need the most help, I guess.)

Thanks for any suggestions or info.

Kaplan CATS bear little resemblance to the real thing. Take an official GMATPrep test to see how you're really doing.

Get the Official Guide too...is Kaplan finally using them in their courses or at least telling students about it?

Finally!!!! Wow I'm impressed they finally are because when I took it, those %%%%%%% never told me about it. Please don't make the mistake of studying just thru Kaplan material.

Haven't heard anything about it from them.

Is this the official guide to which you're referring?

Yes, that is indeed the OG we're all raving about. I can't believe Kaplan still doesn't even mention it. It comes with the Princeton Review course because they use it for the homework assignments. It's a MUST.
