Hello all,

Rookie poster here. I've been reading the boards A LOT and found them extremely helpful, thank you to all.

My q' is about scores with the Kaplan CATs and GMAT Prep. I've been improving and scoring on Kaplan to the modest upper-600's; however, the times I take the Prep CATs my score considerably reduces.

In your experience, which one is more credible?? I understand it is all based on my on performance on each test, but I can't help to be completely confused by this trend. Any advice/comments would be terrific. Thank you

Hi gcarrion

I have taken Manhattan,kaplan,gmat prep and gmat club tests. I have also given a official Gmat aswell. What i have found and I have read so many times on this forum is manhattan and Gmat prep are similar level to the official gmat. Kaplan is bit tough so if you are scoring 650 in kaplan then you should score 700+ in the real official Gmat.

However if you are scoring more in kaplan and less in Gmat prep I think that is just the comfortability with the test structure. If you practise more and more you will score 700+ in Gmat prep. But in short Gmat prep is more similar to official gmat.

Thanks
Rakesh

KUDOS please if my post helps.

thank you Rakesh. What you mention makes perfect sense. I saw a lot of unfamiliar question types in the Prep software. It was just very frustrating. Would you recommend taking the 2 GMAT prep tests several times then? I am 3 weeks away from my test and want to make sure I am not "wasting time" with Kaplan

Hi Mate

I would recommend if you have only 3 weeks then take 2 free Gmat prep test and also take 1 manhattan test which is free. you just have to register at manhattan website. Manhattan and gmat prep are almost similar but different questions though.

So take 1 full length test every week. 3 weeks 3 tests and you should be fine i think.

Thanks

Please KUDOS me if my post helps.

Thanks for the advice man. I have already taking the Free Manhattan and it was also lower than Kaplan. I think I just need to keep re-taking this and the Prep to keep get used to the question format. I am in the home stretch here so hearing from others is really helpful. Thank you
