Members don't see this ad.
the Kaplan diagnostics are anything like the real MCAT's. I just took Kaplan Test #2, which was given as a half test, not the whole thing. And it was freakin' HARD!!!!:mad:

I'm not looking forward in seeing how I did, but it sure made me think, I'm gonna study extra, extra hard now.

The verbal I found was harder than usual. I sat through the Physical Science and Biological Science thinking, hmmm.....i'm screwed. Where in the world they get these questions from?

My point is: Kaplan=real MCAT's?

Thanks a lot guys!!!!

I think I got a 6V, 14P, 4B on the Kaplan half length diagnostic and a 9V, 12P, 12B on the real thing so I don't think it's really indicative of what you'll do on the real thing.

If I were a moderator, I'd say, 'take this to the MCAT forum!' :)

one last opinion if anyone still cares...

I think the Kaplan Diags and Practice Tests are much more difficult than the real thing. I felt as prepared as I could have been.

Here's how I improved...

Daig: 26 (9 V, 8P, 9B)

Practice Tests: (Low 31, High 34)

April MCAT: 39! (12 V, 13 PS, 14 BS)

So keep working, don't get discouraged, and realize that the Kaplan tests have to be tough to motivate their students. By getting my arse kicked early on, I felt prepared for any screwballs the real test may have thrown my way (bad analogy I know)

Anywho, good luck and trust the Kaplan materials and instuctors. They've been doing this forever...
