I always TRUST Kaplan [#permalink]  07 Aug 2017, 07:46
I took Kaplan when I thought that I wanted to be a dentist and needed to take the DAT. I took Kaplan when I wanted to become a nurse and needed to take the NCLEX; and I just took Kaplan again because all my PHD programs want me to have a GRE score. Kaplan has been there my entire academic career. I passed each test the first time around and for this current GRE for my PHD, we consider it a formality, because schools ultimately let in whom they want to let in at this level. But each school had a preferred 149 for verbal and I received a 147, and I was told to not bother about my math due to my subject matter, but guess what? That accidentally improved, there was barely anything on the test that was actually "hard". I remember propping my feet up in my cubical with the keyboard on my leg typing away during the essays. I struggle the most with argumentative essays the entire month, but after trudging along with the examples provided and a session with my coach, well I told you how I was typing in that cubicle. I knew I did good when I walked out. But was excited to see my math score, I wanted to cry! but they were trying to finish me up in the testing center. We have done it once again Kaplan, but I hope this is the last time I see you guys!

Thanks for sharing your story. I find Kaplan relies too much on tips / tricks vs. the hard core skill building of Manhattan GRE. But glad you had a different experience.

I definitely preferred Magoosh over Kaplan, but to each their own!

I didn't like Kaplan. I felt their question formats weren't close to the real stuff on test day.
I didn't get a very good score on the GRE. I'm retaking it again in October and NOT using Kaplan this time around.
Better get your stuff from ETS!
