Thats really good... Unfortunately, it's not very predictive of anything.

Kaplan themselves will give you an estimate but I got a 45% on that exam when I started and they said you should take 3 months after you're done with the Kaplan course and that was very close to the truth. I'm pushing close to 65% on UW now and it has been 2 months - of course, all random timed blocks with unused questions.

You should be happy with your score because it implies you are almost ready. Use the analysis to find your weak points and then keep doing what you were doing otherwise

Good luck.

And thats how you get a 99 Keep it up - your plan seems excellent. I meant ready in terms of you're on the right track. I know people who got high 90s who scored in the 60s on that Kaplan exam a month or so beforehand.
