New Kaplan Mastery Practice vs the Orange Kaplan Book

Postby pippin732 » Sun Jan 31, 2010 10:51 pm

I was wondering what tests both the new Kaplan Mastery Practice and the Orange Kaplan Book take LR questions from?

Mastery takes questions from PTs earlier than 40, nothing more recent than that. Not sure about the orange book.

Mastery has some of the problems from PTs 5-41, but by no means every problem from PTs 5-41. Does anyone know how Kaplan decided which problems to include and which not to include?

They chose questions with wrong answers that were "out of scope." Makes writing the explanations easier ;)

It's actually pretty straightforward: whatever questions aren't used in any of the other course books are put in the Mastery Practice book. So any random missing questions are mostly included in the in-class Lesson Book. And if there's a section's worth of questions missing from an exam, that section is most likely used in the Pacing Book or as an experimental section in the Endurance Book.
