lol. I do not think the PSAT test is very representative of the test. The questions on the passages were a lot more ambiguious than the ones in 10 real SAT's. I thought for the most part the sentence completions were too easy and the math somehow seemed just as easy as the old SAT ( though I got some wrong that made me mad) grammar, dunno cuz I still stink at it.

Score:
M-76
V-68
W-70

total- 214.


not that this score tells anyone anything,.

anyone else take the kaplan tests? what you think of it?

I feel like I wasted 13-15 bucks..

I think Kaplan's easy too...

My mother says that Kaplan is a starter so you'll want to study...and it's purposely designed to be easier than the real thing. That's from her experience in passing a state board test with Kaplan

Are you comparing PSAT to SAT?
They're similar, but not the same. I wouldn't worry about PSAT too much unless you really need that slight possibility of a thousand dollars.

well I really want that slight possibilty of a thousand dollars. lol. plus I MAY try to go to a big name school (Rice ). I'm comparing the reading passages of the SAT and PSAT. I would assume they would be near to identical

By Miamidude (Miamidude) on Monday, July 26, 2004 - 10:34 pm: Edit

so whats the best sat prep book?

By Vtran31 (Vtran31) on Monday, July 26, 2004 - 10:53 pm: Edit

there are so many mistakes on the Kaplan PSAT only both the 2004 and the 2005 edition.

By Kyip (Kyip) on Wednesday, July 28, 2004 - 04:59 pm: Edit

I found many in Princeton's new PSAT book too...they said stuff like 130+60=180 degrees and stuff...and in other sections too.`

By Miamidude (Miamidude) on Wednesday, July 28, 2004 - 11:07 pm: Edit

well excuse me but isnt 130+60=180? next your gonna say 2+2 doesnt equal 8, jesus, the nerve!

By Kyip (Kyip) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 01:57 am: Edit

^^ lol

By Vtran31 (Vtran31) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 04:27 pm: Edit

what mistakes in the 2005 edition? specifically on the 1st diagnostic or prep sections.

By Enteater (Enteater) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 01:53 am: Edit

you probably did waste that.

I've used Kaplan for my SATs, and I have to say...THE PROGRAM SUCKS LIKE ••••.

I think its mostly aimed for lacker people or something...if you want something challenging go with Princeton.

By Kyip (Kyip) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 03:26 pm: Edit

Vtran, you mean in Princeton? Several times during the practice tests, they'd give me a problem like, "If 16x+3, then what does x equal?" It's not even a frickin equation.

By Vtran31 (Vtran31) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 11:09 pm: Edit

well I mean kaplan PSAT. I guess I wasted osme cash this summer. so PR actually is challenging? may need to swipe that from the library.......

:-P. well I was gonna check it out anyway... unless they get it liek in october..
