I have completed 3 Kaplan CATs and was wondering what the consensus is.

Kaplan CAT 1 530 Q35/V25
CAT 2 580 Q37/V30
CAT 3 570 Q37/V27

I have access to 5 more Kaplan CATs, and would like to them all, but don't know if it's worth it. I know that traditionally those who score in the low to mid 600s on the Kaplan CATs, that usually equals a good score on the real thing.

I am applying for a JD/MBA program and my B-school doesn't need a high GMAT score, but I would love to feel some vindication after my miserable defeat (410 Q29/V18).

So if anyone has some advice, I would really appreciate it.

Oh one more thing, my semester starts Jan 6th, but I don't want to take the new GMAT and would prefer to make this thing happen in the next several weeks. I took my last GMAT, on Aug 27th and have been studying ever since.

Please advise.

thx,


wiseguy

I would take as many practice test as possible. It will provide you mental stamina for the real thing. It seems you got what it takes to score 600+ and you have been studying for a long time. So I woudn't delay it that much.
And you know, it is better to apply with a 600+ than with a 410. I think it makes a difference.

Good luck

I've seen alot of people using the Kaplan CATs and those who are getting above and beyond 600, seem to be about a 580 or so.

I think there are no CATs, that are good. Use Kaplan/Peterson CATs and apply the knowledge to the OG. What I mean is use the CATs as a navigation tool, not a prognosticator.

thx,

Ignore the scores from your Kaplan tests. Most people say they are about 50-100 points below what you'll really score. Take the Powerprep/GMATPrep (the official tests) and Princeton Review tests. Both are much more like the real thing and a lot more accurate in the practice scores.
