I just took the Natural science test by Kaplan, here are my results:

OC:21
GC: 20
BIO: 21
TS: 21

what do you think? How comparable is it to the real exam? Let me know, thanks!

Good scores. I wouldn't worry about how it compares to the real test, because nothing really does.

Really? I thought it was pretty easy and I made a bunch of stupid mistakes. Hopefully that doesn't get me on test day. Ur scores are amazing, do you mind sharing how you studied for the Phylum section?

Well...I just read them 50 times. I memorized EVERYTHING about animal kingdom (especially chordates and mammals). Didn't go into too much about insects (like centipede order), for example.

i found that kaplan ranged in difficulty from really easy to really hard so i would just average all your practice test scores

I also got a 21 on the Kaplan BIO but scored a 17 on the real thing. The BIO on the real thing is just everywhere and really hard to study for. While I thought the Kaplan was a decent practice (actually only practice I had) it was nothing like the real thing. And more practice is better I think. Only took one practice test LOL and I didn't really finish the Kaplan book.
