    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.
     
  5. I took kaplan a while back.

    got scores ragning from 20 to 25 on their practice tests. Got a 22 on the real thing. I'm retaking in Augest

    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...
