Are the GMAT Prep courses really improve my score? [#permalink] New post 22 Feb 2011, 22:08
Hi All,

I took GMAT exam couple of days ago and scored a miserable 530 (42, 20). I always thought I will score better in Verbal and also I have never scored 42 or even close to it in mock tests. Here are some of the test I did before the actual test.

GMAT Prep1 (GMAC software) 520 (33,28)
Manhattan 520 (26,35)
Knewton 550 (33,33)
Princton 510 (33,28)
GMAT Prep2 (GMAC software) 540 (39,25)

With these awful result and have only a month to send my GMAT result to school, how can I improve my score to 600 or better since the school asked me for a GMAT score of 600 or better.

Does prep courses such as the one running at Ryerson University (25 hours prep.) helpful toward my situation?
I really appreciate it if anyone can help me here.

With all the stories of 700+ guys, I am pretty embarrassed to even post my marks here.

Not everyone is going to score a 700+ on the GMAT however GMAT prep courses can be helpful and have been shown to help improve scores. The efficacy of the course depends upon the quality of instructors and the amount of time you dedicate to it. It sounds like you could benefit from some type of structured preparation.
