At Kaplan we believe the Practice Test is a great first step to help you get smarter with your practice so you can score higher on Test Day.
Here are a few important things to know about the PracticeTest so you can get the most out of it:
1 Why should I take the practice test?
The Practice Test is a real hands-on experience that will:
- Give you a sense of what to expect on Test Day
- Raise your confidence
- Help you identify your areas for improvement
- Provide you detailed feedback to your toughest questions so you can get those right in the future.
2 How should I prepare for the practice test?
We offer several tools to help you familiarize yourself with the type of content that makes up the test:
- Sign up for our 20-Minute Workout
- Register for our daily prep with our Question a Day for the GMAT®, GRE® or MCAT®.
- Join our Blog and get involved in our community of fellow test-takers:
3 What should I expect at the practice test?
Plan to be with us for about 4 hours, to cover the following sample agenda:
- Practice test orientation (10 minutes)
- Take the practice test (varies by exam, 1.5 - 3.5 hours)
- Review and understand your score (20 minutes)
- Review sample problems (20 minutes)
- Discuss Kaplan options (10 minutes)
You'll walk out with a detailed score report so we recommend you bring a web-enabled mobile device to receive your score report immediately following the test.
4 What should I bring to the practice test?
If you are taking the test onsite, make sure to bring:
- Something to write with
- Plenty of scrap paper
- A calculator (for the GRE)
- Snacks and a drink to carry you through
You may want to dress in layers so you can adjust to the room temperature and give yourself plenty of extra time to get to the test location on time.
For an online test, make sure you have a stable internet connection free of distraction and do the technical requirements check ahead of time.
5 Will I get a score for my practice test?
Yes, you will walk out with a score for your practice test that you alone can see. The test maker does not have access.
In the days following the practice test, you'll receive a detailed score report and access to a wealth of prep resources.
