Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Franckly speaking, I can't even get more than 560 at Kaplan CAT (Quant+Verbal) so I am not a high-scorer but I am curious about the Quant results of the members here because a lof of people seem to be quite good at quants so it can just give me an idea about your skills...
concerning myself, Q 36 was the highest i got in kaplan
please share your results in this survey ^_^ and if you have already taken the GMAt you can also add your final Quant result too...
My best score (this was about 4 months ago) after studying for about a month was a 27. Of course, with both tests that I took, I guessed on the last 4-5 questions in Quant. & made a few careless mistakes. I'll probably take Kaplan 3 & 4 & PR 3 & 4 this month to see where I am. I'm horrible at these GMAT tests but my goal is still a 600+ on my next attempt. It would take me another year to even be in the 700 range. But, I'll take it again in November. I was "knocked out" by the real GMAT just like you were, Antmavel.
I did some Kaplan tests lately and here are my results so far
#1: 600 (Q40/V32)
#2: 600 (Q46/V30)
#3: 640 (did not get the break down here)
#4: 670 (Q50/V37)
I did not have the ideal conditions for first 2 tests though with some siblings coming in and out asking if I needed anything during my test and God forbid, you really need maximum concentration for Kaplan verbal. Anyhow, as it is for many people, I lost most of my points on RC. SC and CR were over 80% but RC was 50% or even worse. Don't worry too much for Kaplan tests as you must know by now that they are not really representative of your true score. You should try out PR CAT and you will see a sharp increase in your score _________________
#1. 720 (Q54, V40): I think the score in verbal was a fluke, because i could never score that high in verbal again. . So i ignored this score.
#2. 600 (Q52,V23) : At first i was quite shocked at my verbal score, but i think Kaplan verbal is very difficult, with very close answer choices in CR and RC. Which might not be a correct representation of the actual gmat.
So, i think we all are in the same boat, with regard to Kaplan verbal. Will give some shot at PR and Power Prep tests, as suggested by you people. I felt Kaplan 800Score tests to be relatively easier, as i did fairly well in those, (Q-55,V43) and hope that the difficulty level is that of gmat... touchwood..!!! Becoming a bit selfish....
I don't know if it's me, but the first 2 Kaplans seemed harder than the last 2. I got 650 on the first (39/39, running out of time on the last 2 Q questions), 620 (37/37), 670 (50 Q, 36 V) and 640 (50, 35). Also the last 2 had some serious errors: 2 RC paragraphs had incomplete sentences, and one math problem was missing a part of the text?!
I have taken the Kaplan ( 2) cats...the results were not very good but I was satisfied for the reasons one - they showed me that I can be 'surprised' by the tough types in th actual test... two - they hlped me get prepared for the worst case scenario.
I guess lik most people have already opined , one must get the best out of the Kaplan guys and not get bogged by their scaled versions ...I have a feeling that the scaling is a deliberate low .
ant - do not ever compare yourself on th basis of Kaplan scors and there in one Universal truth - how much ever U plan and how much ever U work - the FINAL DAY matters mor than any other DAY ... and the only way to beat th test on th FINAL DAY is one- to get ur fundamentals right and two - keep ur mind focussed and very composed... and it is here that most people loose out... or atleast thats what experience says... all the best and cheer up mate ... U will do well
Have Fun _________________

Took the practice paper test of Kaplan today. Scored 53 (36 correct of 37). Kicking myself for the one I got wrong! I thought the test was way too easy, finished with 5 minutes to spare too. I don't think this is a realistic or representative test, since I haven't fared as well in other tests (Averaged around 46).
I did my first Kaplan CAT after 1.5 months of studying quant and I got 640 (Q43, V38); However I ended up having 5-4 minutes to spare in Quant and about 15 minutes in Verbal since I was not really sure about my pace. I hope to have a better control of time next time and score higher. I wonder how is Kaplan related to the actual test.
