If I start studying now, is a 165+ possible?

Postby SoPro » Mon Apr 25, 2011 6:43 pm

I took a diagnostic test proctored by Kaplan and made a 157 (Test 33, or something close to that. I feel like I could have done better. I base this on the proposition that people generally do better on tests when not hungover.)

I have studied a small amount (basic/advanced linear games in LG Bible, two chapters in LR Bible).

If I start studying this weekend, five hours a day for approx. one month, is a 165 attainable? I feel like I'm a fast learner, for what it's worth.

Probably. With enough effort, I think it's possible. Try taking another diag, this time while not hung over.

My diagnostic was 155. After a one month Kaplan course, I got a 165 on the real test. It's definitely possible, and I feel like I could have done much better if I took more practice tests and studied for more than a month.

I took the October 2010 test after starting dedicated study during the last 2 weeks of August. I think you may have a little bit less time than I had, but I went +12 on my diagnostic on the real thing.


Hit the ground running and figure out your strengths and weaknesses as soon as possible.

Definitely possible. Don't be afraid to postpone, though, if you're not where you want to be by test day.
