Just took a free Kaplan Practice Test at one of their centers. Test code was 5036.

ANy ideas on how alike this and other Kaplan tests match the style of the SAT?

I thought the math was not hard, but the verbal was not great at all.

The questions seemed similar to the regular SATs, but somehow, my score always comes out a 100 points less than my actual score...which could prove that I'm just lucky on the SATs, but some of the questions worded on Kaplan tests are hard to understand, so that could be a reason why. They aren't far off. Good practice, but the real ones are better. Also, the questions seemed to follow the homework and lessons of Kaplan which can be either good or bad...

well, i got a kaplan practice test book. I got 1490, 1510, and 1510. I got a 1590 on the real thing, with an improvement similar to chen's. I think the main difference is that on kaplan tests there are a few bull---- questions that are ambiguous/have multiple possible answers. On the SAT, they are very careful to prevent that. Also, you focus harder when you take the real SAT.

I took a practice test at PR and I scored a 1260. The next week I took the real SAT and scored a 1310.
