Hey guys, i have signed up for the Kaplan Course and i must say the course helped me out quite a bit. I did a lot of practices and i am now scoring between 600-630 in the Kaplan Practice Tests. This score honestly scares me to death... However, i heard some people are saying that the Kaplan tests are harder than the real test... so i just want to know where i really stand.

The really really really best way is to take a GMAT prep if you have one handy. Otherwise assume you are around the same score (600-630) on the Real GMAT until you can take a GMAT Prep (take it with AWA by the way to get the absolutely clear/correct picture).

how much do you need?

Thx for the reply, my target is between 680-700.
This test has really been stressing me out. I usually get around a 5 in my Essay portion. Sighhhh

Can you please be more specific about which Kaplan tests you are taking? Are they on a CD? are they part of the online program? I just finished a Kaplan course (on-site) and took 7 of the 9 online CAT tests. I found them to be very representative of my actual score, and types of questions. Verbal was slighly harder then the real test.

Some of the older tests from the CDs and online were aparently much harder, but this seemed to be corrected in 2010. They were approx 100 points below what you could expect. Since then, the more recent tests are much more representative. Here are my tests (all Kaplan):

Diag: 570
CAT 2 - 600
CAT 3 - 640
CAT 4 - 620
CAT 5 - 680
CAT 6 - 650
CAT 7 - 690
Actual GMAT - 710

Worrying will not help your score, in fact, being positive and feeling confident will really help you. Keep studying. Every hour you put in could cover that one topic, or reinforce that one concept that could bump you up. 3-4 more questions right on g-day could put you at 700! 630 is strong, your not far away. Best of luck!

PS - A 5 on AWA is all you need. It is generally accepted that anything over a 4 is great, and will not give you any added benefit on g-day. Don't worry about the essay b/c it sounds like you are at an acceptable level.

I am currently taking their GMAT Advanced - Anywhere Program

I have actually took all 9 of the practice tests and my scores ranges from 600-630.

I just looked into the GMATPREP Test about an hour ago and i am now going over their practice problems. So far, i have completed the SC section and the PS section and i got 13/15 in SC and 15/15 in PS. So yeah... i am not sure how else i can bump my score higher. I honestly hope my 630 in Kaplan can bring me to at least a 680 in the Real GMAT.

Thx again!

GMAT prep is as close as it gets to the real thing. They have 2 tests - use them wisely. You can retake them but then you will be getting repeats and that will inflate your score quite a bit.

There is also PowerPrep (older version) but it has overlap between the two and the algorithm is outdated (though good anyway if you have burned up your GMAT Preps)

i just took the gmat and i'd say the gmatprep gives a pretty good estimate of your real score

in my case:
gmat prep test 1, taken on sunday: 720
gmat prep test 2, taken tuesday: 730
Actual gmat score, taken wednesday: 720

Yes - overlap between gmat prep and power prep.
