Confused which to believe Manhattan OR KAPLAN [#permalink]

Hello Gurus,

I started preparing for GMAT 1.5 months ago. I have given couple of Manhattan GMAT CATs and 2 Kaplan CATs. My scores are confusing:

My Manhattan Scores are as follows:
1: 590
2: 650
3:600

I gave Kaplan after second Manhattan and scored 660.

I was shocked after 600 on 3rd MGMAT CAT so gave 2nd Kaplan CAT immediately after little or no additional preparation and I got 720. I am confused now, which is more accurate Manhattan OR Kaplan. One thing on 3rd MGMAT my timing was way off and both sections i.e. Q and V I had to skip most of last 10 Questions. But I planned and managed my timing precisely on Kaplan. I guess that is the only difference between the two Tests.

Can you guys provide some advise as to what should I believe. Manhattan QUANT is killer but then Kaplan Verbal is equally tough. Please advise.

The take away should more be that your performance is erratic. Look at why that might be. Are you missing key foundational knowledge? Is your timing inconsistent?

Don't take either score seriously. Consider yourself to be somewhere in the middle right now (say around 650). The only test that gives a good approximation of actual GMAT score is Official GMAT prep test but I have known it to vary substantially too. From these tests, try to learn where your weaknesses lie and work on them.
