    Anyone taken the kaplan OAT course?

    I just took the midterm and got 305 for my total score...

    needless to say...I am not happy...

    so, 305 total schore...having just completed the kaplan in class course and read about half of the thick kaplan (review) book.

    am I ready to take the test in a month...?
    did any of you score around 305 on the midterm? is that horrible for one month before th test?

    anyone advice would be helpful...THANKS.

    hey eye2eye,

    i was sucking the kaplan oat midterms bigtime before the actual oat. i stopped taking them and focused all my time on the flashcards. it did hep me a lot, and my score did improve a lot by the actual oat. i think scoring the practice tests was adding too much stress.

    good luck :luck: :love: :luck: :love: :luck: :love: :luck: :love:

    I took Kaplan and didn't do very well in the pretests and wound up doing WAY better on the actual test last week. If you have been using that big OAT book and understand the gist of whats in there you'll be fine. I thought the real OAT was much easier that most of the questions in the reviews! Best of luck!
