I'm a Kaplan student (finding it pretty helpful so far) but also wanted to take GMATPrep that people are talkign about. Are these tests, books, etc? Please advise.

Also, I've taken the first two CATs with Kaplan and have scored 660 and 620 respectively. I'm aiming for a 700+ score... but am not sure how to interpret my Kaplan results versus the real GMAT. Can someone please help here?

Your answers are here: GMAT Prep Details
AND
Here: GMAT Score Comparison between tests
By the way, are you familiar with the Official Guide for GMAT Review?

Also, if you have a few minutes, can you share about your Kaplan Class?
Which class is it? (online, classroom, etc)
Where is it? Ontario Canada?
What is your impression about the teacher?
What do you like and of course what do you don't like about the course?

We have a whole section dedicated to GMAT Prep Classes here and would love to add your thoughts there as well:

Thanks for your reply I'm finding the Kaplan class helpful in that it helps me focus my efforts. It's the classroom course in Ontario, Canada.

The teacher I have in class is good but I find he has to focus in on the people that are weaker in the class... in quant, especially. There's another one there whose workshops I attend who I find more helpful.

To be honest, I'm not sure if the Kaplan CATs will give me a true sense of how I will actually do on my GMAT (mid-September). I want to get a 720+ but am somewhat discouraged by my results so far.

CAT 1 - 660 (48Q, 30V)
CAT 2 - 620 (40Q, 33V)
CAT 3 - 620 (40Q, 36V)

I would rather know if I'm not doing well relative to the actual GMAT than perform on something that won't be indicative -- are there other practice tests I should be taking (I will be doing the GMAT Prep...but are others more representative than Kaplan or should I continue with the CATs). Am I being unnecessarily pessimistic?

I've been practicing quant for over one month now and am doing well in the practice sessions. However, I'm not sure why it's not reflected in CAT 2 and 3. Any thoughts?

I've started to work through verbal and am beginning to see some upward results which is encouraging.
