    Hey all, I just wanted some input as to how these diagnostic scores relate to the real thing AND what improvement I can expect to see if I study hard throughout the summer??? Here are my scores..o ya, bear in mind I took this very lightly because I've been a little sick and also for the physics section..ya, I've never taken physics, pretty much just tried my best there..but I am currently enrolled in physics 1 summer A and physics 2 summber B so by the time I take the OATs in August I should be good to go..thanks for your input/help!!!!

    TS: 260
    BIO: 300
    CHEM: 280
    ORGO: 270
    PHY: 200 <---don't know any physics as explained above

    My OAT compared to my Kaplan Diagnostic was
    Kaplan AA 300 TS 320
    OAT AA 340 TS350

    It seemed like the QR and RC was harder on the actual OAT than Kaplan. Well, the RC didn't seem hard but I only scored a 330 and felt like I got 90% of them right.

    Probably good you're taking physics right before taking it. I have been out of school for a while and it's been 5 years since my physics courses. With the Kaplan book help I scored a 330 on the OAT.

    Yeah the diagnostic killed me too. I think I scored somewhere around 310-320. However, on the OAT I had a 360. Kaplan is wayyyy harder. Before you write the test, make sure to do the opted.org practice test, because I scored identically on that as I did on the actual OAT.

    Yeah...Kaplan tests are much more difficult than the real thing......don't get too discouraged from your results...and just like the others have said, the practice test from opted.org is a better indicator of the real thing....Good luck :thumbup:

    I'm just curious..is there another diagnostic at the end of the kaplan course? I just wanted to make sure that we are all talking about the same thing...I'm talking about the diagnostic you take before starting kaplan????
