"How well do the kaplan practice exams correspond to the real thing? "
-Somebody here suggested that the real score is often 2 point below your best practice score and (unrelated to the topic) within 2 points of your ACT. Asuming that you prepare hard enough, it seems to be very reasonable estimate. I can only base it on my D. experience. She took MCAT once, she took ACT also once. She prepared very hard for MCAT, she took Kaplan prep. class. Her real MCAT was exactly 2 point below her best practice score and it was 2 points above her ACT. Estimate worked perfectly. She was very happy with her score.
