Can the people behind Kaplan
CAT software really be so ignorant as to publish such lame CAT software...
In my prep I have been doing very well on GMAT prep, MGMAT, etc...
However, when I go to my Kaplan
CAT I score 540, 560, 550... wtf??? I hear other people having the same experience, whats the deal with Kaplan
, and why don't they try to find better CAT algorithms?
Has anyone done reallly well on a Kaplan
test the first time they took it?
Most of the people have the same experience as you had. I personally scored on the real test 50 to 100 points more
than on Kaplan
In my opinion the reason is simple: Kaplan
offers its students to take a free CAT test before
starting the courses, and has a policy stating that "if you score less on the real test than on the diagnostic test, you can get your money back". To avoid this to happen frequently, it seems quite logical from a Kaplan
point of view to have an algorithm that score lower than the real thing.
So don't get impressed by your somewhat low score on Kaplan
