Kaplan Final is a joke?

    So I take a full length 1 and the midterm, I get 18s, then I take the final and I get a 22. The final had about a total of 4 specific detail questions (I haven't really studied yet so I think I got them all wrong). And about 10 light-detailed questions (if that makes sense).
    Anyway, is Kaplan just trying to make me feel better?
    How did everyone else do on the Kaplan final compared to the real DAT?

    Thanks

    Hi doc3232. When I took KAPLAN I felt that the exams they had where not much representative of the material or perhaps the types of questions on the real DAT. The exams on KAPLAN are pulled (99%) from their blue book, which is indicative of how much you know their material, which is good, but like so many others have said, just not enough. However, if you are doing good, it means you've mastered their material, which is good. I would also suggest to back to the questions you missed, and do more research online, it would help to get the conceptual picture of it.
