Kaplan must have fixed their scoring system because my score was almost identical to my
Kaplan scores. I had 740, 740, 760 and 760 in my four
Kaplan CATs and 760 in the real GMAT. I thought my
Kaplan scores were a bit inflated though because I did all the questions in the
Kaplan book (some of them show-up on the CAT) and on the advanced
kaplan book. I think
Kaplan's quant is actually bit easier than the real gmat -- I mostly never missed a question on the
Kaplan CATs -- but routinely got 3 or 4 wrong on the GMATPrep exams. I got 8 or 10 wrong on the
MGMAT quant exams -- but that's a story for another day!
Kaplan verbal questions -- especially SC and RC -- are excellent.

(The CAT's don't give a score breakdown, just total and percentile)
Kaplan Diagnostic: 560 54% (q38%, v58%)
Kaplan Cat 1: 560 54% (q51%, v36%)
Kaplan Cat 2: 570 57% (q46%, v56%)
Kaplan Cat 3: 610 69% (q55%, v69%)
Kaplan Cat 4: 630 75% (q59%, v81%)
I still have three weeks to go and my goal is a 720. I also came across the score calculator on this website and have read on other forums that
Kaplan's CAT's undervalue the scores by as much as 100 points. Not sure if this is accurate. Any feedback is appreciate.
