Moving from a 156 to a 163 is going from the 70th - 90th percentile and effectively surpassing 26,000 test takers. No small feat by any means. I started with Kaplan at 168 and ended in the upper 170s. And now I teach it and see similar results. There are less of those stories out there because only 5% of people start at our level. And Kaplan has a million students.It's a stigma that Kaplan has because it prepares so many people for the test that people have come to believe it's for the average test taker. The law of averages would put the average Kaplan student at a 151. 5 points better than a 151 is 20 percentile points increase (again, 26,000 test-takers). 5 points better than a 172 is still the 99th percentile.I'll agree that not all options work for all people - but I have a hard time believing (from my own experience if nothing else) that Kaplan just "doesn't work" for high scorers. I teach logic and I'm not a marketer, so I don't care if you sign up for Kaplan or anything else. However, I will defend what I do with facts. Hell, I like arguments.
