I just took the Kaplan at the University of South Dakota. My score was 88. I did study using the Kaplan book, but honestly you don't need to know any of the science information that was included in the book except for the A & P. In fact, you need to know more A & P than what the book included, so getting a cliff book or any A & P review book would be better. The A & P was mainly neurology ( go over what controls what on brain function), cardiovascular and respiratory , but also 1-2 questions each on immunity,blood, renal, GI, homeostasis, and sensory. There was no geometry on my exam. Just lots of fractions, ratios, conversions, some dosage calculations, a couple simple algebra problems and about 7 word problems.
I am posting this, because I had a hard time finding information on what to expect on the exam.
Keep in mind that every question missed deducts more points than you would think, so really study. For instance, I missed only 1 on the reading section and that brought that score down to 95%. I missed 3 on the science and that brought my score down to 85%. Just take your time, use all the time allotted, and make sure to go over your answers before starting the next section on the exam. I was literally the last one in the room
Not because I am slow, I was just being very cautious.
They are not only looking at your total score they are also looking at your critical thinking ability.
The Kaplan study guide, in my opinion, wasted a lot of time that I could have used concentrating on reviewing my A & P.
Good luck to all of you looking for Kaplan entrance exam information to prepare for your exam. I hope this helps.
