I would rapidly present myself: my name is Nicola Lo Surdo, I come from Italy and I have just had my GMAT exam with a score of 620 Q45 V30. As I have already attended a Veritas
Preparation Course and I have continued studying on Manhattan material by myself, I believe that I well comprehended all the fundamentals of the GMAT both for the quantitative and for the verbal section. I also did several CATS simulations before taking the REAL TEST: 6 Manhattans, 5 800.scores and the 2 official ones. As I'm aiming at a 670 plus, I'm disappointed with my score, specifically with the verbal section that I want to improve substantially. I have already studied 3 months........
Before getting enrolled in a Knewton course
I would need to know if the course could be really, really useful for me:
1) Is the preparation course adaptive to my needs? I do not want to find myself stucked again in basic concepts or a general presentation of the test. At this stage I need to have a person and a system that guide me in the right direction. I would need an error log
, questions provided as a response to my weak points, statistics about my improvement, etc. So, Is there a person with whom I can continually mail in order to understand what to do, how much time to study, what direction to take? I want to anticipate that the english is my weak point. I have never studied in an english institution and I have been studying english since one year. Before that I had almost never studied it (Pre-intermediate level).
2) Is my situation common to Knewton
? Is Knewton
you able to handle it and help me raise my score of at least 50 points? What is the range score with which it works more?;
3) If I did not understand badly, to have the money back guarantee I should attend all the online classes and do the homework assigned. However, by doing so, I would feel like to attend another Veritas
Preparation Course, a standardized learning. I want to repeat that I really need, need a personalized learning and do not want to repeat the basic concepts. I need to understand how to better approach to the verbal section during the exam, what strategy better suits me.
