HELP - What am I doing wrong? [#permalink]

I'm not sure if I should just chalk this one up as a bad day or not, but I'm starting to get really discouraged. Here's my story, I recently completed the Kaplan GMAT classroom program. The course ended last week and I take the test 8/14. After I finished the Kaplan course I stopped doing any Kaplan work for a week and hit the OG. I find the OG really helpful I'm timing myself and hitting at least 80% accuracy when even when I really rush, however the questions on the Kaplan tests are WORLDS more difficult than anything I've hit so far in the OG and my test scores on the Kaplan online CATS have been horrible - 510 on Kaplan diagonistic, 560 on practice test A (not CAT), 520 on Kaplan practice test 1 (CAT), and a God awful 480 on Kaplan practice test 2 (CAT).

I know I'm better than this, at least I keep telling myself that. I just don't think I was mentally ready for this morning's test. I'm kind of burned out from studying and work, plus I basically just woke up and took the test this morning - no coffee/shower/etc. I at a loss here about where I'm at, I feel like if the questions on the GMAT will be like those in the OG I have a chance, but if they're like the questions on the Kaplan tests I'm done for. Any advice?

High level GMAT math is similar to Kaplan. GMAT verbal is nothing like Kaplan verbal (GMAT verbal is more logical, well written, and maybe easier).
Just so you don't stress out much I give my example - Kaplan diagnostic (620 - couldn't even finish RC section) Kaplan CAT 1 - 590, real GMAT 740. And there are plenty others examples like that.

Sparky, thanks a lot for the post, I do appreciate it. Follow up question, I've been studying pretty hard for awhile now and I feel like I'm getting burned out. I feel like I'm in a Catch-22. If I keep studying at the rate I'm going I'm not sure it will do any good because I'm so burned out and tired. But I'm at the point now where I feel like every day counts and I don't want to take a breather. Can you or anyone else relate to that situation?
