The penalty of not finishing a section on time is much greater than getting a question incorrect.

I am not saying that is the difference between your 49/50- I just mean its much better to guess than to leave something unanswered.

Kaplan used to show a highly conservative score in the past. Now, however they seem to have over-compensated for it and the current versions tend to over-estimate your score. Moreover, use CATs to practice your timing, gauge performance/weaknesses etc and do not fret on the scores. By experience no ...

Sharing an Easy way to remember PRIMES

So here we go (the red coloured are not primes) 2, 3, 5, 7 11, 13, 17, 19 || 23, 29 || 31, 37 41, 43, 47, 49 || 53, ...

I don't want to sound negative but in earlier times Kaplan used to really under estimate your score.. now they seem to have over-compensated for that defect (so the score might be a little inflated). I would recommend an official test just to get a clearer understanding of your situation. All things...
