I'm not sure if there is a good correlation between percent scores in Kaplan and actual scores on step 1 but if you are scoring above 60% in Kaplan, chances of failing step 1 are low. Below is my Kaplan simulation result:

Overall Correct: 64%

Number correct 207
Number incorrect 112
Number omitted 0
Number not reached 3

Answer Changes:
Correct to Incorrect 22
Incorrect to Correct 34
Incorrect to Incorrect 26


Block 1 61%
Block 2 59%
Block 3 67%
Block 4 72%
Block 5 57%
Block 6 70%
Block 7 65%
According to kaplan's score estimator, ur 64% = 234 ... which is pretty close to ur real score.....
Thanks for the input...
