Hey guys,
I took a Knewton course last year and I somehow managed to bomb the Gmat after it, although I scored between 680-720 in my practice tests. Now I would like to start the journey again, but not from scratch. I know that Kaplan offers an advanced course online and I was wondering if it is worth it? (Kaplan got some mixed reviews here) Are there any other courses I can consider such that I don't waste the first month in the course doing 500+ questions?

Thanks!

Also, many people have had great success studying by themselves, just using a variety of GMAT books.

This might be good for you since you can focus on the more difficult concepts and questions.

The biggest concern many have with this approach is that there is no structure in place to ensure that they actually do the studying... but if you make sure you stick to a schedule, it may provide the same or greater benefit than classes, for a fraction of the cost.

Most of the prep courses are aimed at helping people reach the high 600s or the low 700s. To score above 760, you need to customize your strategy.

sorry if this seems like a dumb question but what do you mean by advanced course. it's the same test for everyone - what makes a course advanced?

A basic course will focus on the fundamentals and teach you how to perform well generally.

An advanced course assumes you already know the fundamentals and heads straight for the more difficult topics you may encounter.

In both cases you're still taking the same exam, but the basic course spent less time on the more difficult areas so you're likely to miss those questions when they come up.

Kaplan does have an advanced course here

it requires a minimum of 600 on the gmat or their diagnostic
the course is taught by 760+ instructors (with 99th percentile)
Also, the material/coursework is different from the mainstream class

This is the only true "advanced" class I am aware of.

I got 710 on the GMAT in Toronto with Admit Master on the first attempt, more than what I've needed, and started with mid-500s. A friend of mine got 740 and got admitted to Wharton this year.

What I liked the most about their course it felt almost like 1 on 1 tutoring, but in a class. Looks like they've done a very clever job putting the program together. I've always sort of knew where I am going and what I need to do next. And I've done enough practice tests with an instructor review every time that almost knew exactly what my score will be when I went to write the GMAT. Highly recommended.

Hi heyholetsgo,

You absolutely don't want to waste time simply doing 500+ questions -- at least not in the beginning.

In the beginning, you should be honing your thought process in a such a way that you can EFFICIENTLY find the right answer in as little time as possible. Do it right the first time and you'll find the practice questions you do later to be a lot more beneficial - because you'll look at them in a different way.

Our focus is on busy professionals with limited time to study. We teach speed learning techniques that are highly effective for the exam.

If all you want is practice questions, we have that as well: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test/

--just note that simply doing practice questions won't necessarily help you get to where you need to be.

As always, we are here to help.
