Are Hartcourt and Kaplan practice test similar?
Please tell me, thanks in advance.
From what I remember they are some what alike. Though I think the math on the Kaplan test was harder computation wise, like you would need a calculator.
IMO some of the verbal analogies on the Kaplan test was a notch harder than the Harcourt ones.
can someone point out the similarty? Like chem/bio/verbal/reading? I'm counting on those four to score big points and so so on math.
I took the final test in the back of the Kaplan 08-09 book and I also have taken one of the harcourt practice tests you buy off the website.
I thought Bio and Chem were slightly harder on Kaplan.
Reading Comp. Im not sure how that compared, I would say the same.
And as for verbal, I thought Harcourt was more difficult.
The Quantitative Ability section you can't really compare b/c Kaplan didn't have much Calculus on theirs, but the Harcourt test did.
Thanks for the helpful reply.
I took the first practice test:
Quantitative Ability: IMO, I found it much harder than Cliffs or Kaplan, less of the questions were as straightforward as the other two
Biology: Easier than both
Chemistry: Harder than Kaplan (more O Chem), easier than Cliffs
Verbal: Easier than both
Reading Comprehension: Same as both
I think I was the most shocked with the math. Maybe its because I wasn't expecting so much calculus and figures
from what I remember when I took the real thing there were more things on classic number theory and stuff.
