Dear all,

I did the GMAT on June 30th and I ended up with a fairly average score of Q44, V31 and AWA 5.5 . I blame my unsatisfactory score to my chaotic study approach and I am now trying to work on my retake plan and strategies. I also want to enroll in an online course but I am not sure which one would be best match for me at this point. Please, look at what I have done so far and give me some advice how to proceed next.

Materials used:

MGMAT Verbal guides SC, CR, RC 4th edition
MGMAT 6 tests
MGMAT Question Banks
Kaplan Premier 2012 book and 4 tests on the CD
OG 12, OG 13
OG Math Book 2nd Edition
OG Verbal Book 2nd Edition

Test Scores:

On all Kaplan tests I had 570 (i dont remember the split on the separate tests, but i can check it in a few days if you think it's important)
MGMAT 1 640 (Q46, V 32)
MGMAT 2 660 (Q44, V36)
MGMAT 3 700 (Q44, V41)
MGMAT 4 690 (Q45,V39)
MGMAT 5 650 (Q43,V36)
MGMAT 6 710 (Q47, V40)
GMATprep 1 680 ...i dont remember how much i had on quant, but on verbal I had 35
GMATprep 2 620 few days before the exam when i was already veery nervous. I don't remember the split at all and I never reviewed that exam as I was very upset by the result. I can check it when I go back home in a few days if you think it's important.
***I did all test with AWA and 8 minute breaks***

My question for the GMAT experts:

Which course would be most appropriate for me at this point? I really like Manhattan but I have done all tests and question banks and I'm not sure if I can get any advantage out of their course.

I would greatly appreciate any advice how to improve my current score.

elenaaa,

Everyone's learning style is different so you have to go ahead and do your research. Some courses focus on providing tons and tons of practice questions. Others focus on the basics and still others focus on strategy and timing efficiency - which are important to actually doing well on the day of the exam. You can read some of the reviews of the different courses on the forums.

I'd invite you to check out the GMATPill approach - focused on your thinking process. If you can "think" like a GMAT Expert, you have the highest chances of replicating that same thought process to other GMAT questions.

It looks like your weakness is in verbal - you can check out some of the video testimonials and success stories and see if what worked for prior students would work for you too (http://www.gmatpill.com/the-gmat-pill-m ... l-student/)

At this point, you've taken close to 10 practice exams and in my opinion you're better off focusing on the basics and/or strategy before revisiting practice tests.
