I read in another forum that the a passing/good range/percentage of a Kaplan simulation would be between a 60-70%.

The NBME is more predictive. Considering a certain point in my studying progress my Testimony to the Kaplan simulation vs a NBME is:
Kaplan Simulation: 60%
NBME 18: 194 (a week after kaplan sim.)

So I would say a 60% from kap sim is barely passing.

Also, I read in another forum that Kaplan says get over a 65% to ensure a passing score.
