this site supports GMAXonline... I have no association with either, except as a student of GMAT, but I found it useful... it is A LOT of homework and A LOT of studying, but very clearly explained. I found their SC particularly useful. You will be working closely with OG, which is the best part, so it isn't like you are wasting your time just on lectures and h/w from unofficial source.

http://www.gmaxonline.com

if you have I will be happy to answer!

PS the additional value here is the access to all of the math challenges of this website

I agree with u2lover. GmaxOnline is very extensive and helpful course. I really think it is definitely the best among its rivals. But do not be fooled, no course in the world will get you anywhere close to 700. Even if you do all the homework it gives you and properly understand every principle it teaches you.. To break 700 you will have to work alone significantly more then you did on the course.

Manhattan proponent here.

Their courses are taught via webex, which is nice - you get video and audio of the professor.

"But do not be fooled, no course in the world will get you anywhere close to 700."

While I agree that you have to do the bulk of the work yourself to make your score happen, I totally disagree that a course can't significantly contribute to a 700+ score. I think a classroom course would be more likely to do that for people who learn better in a class setting than they do with self-paced prep, but courses can definitely make a difference.

Definitely, that is exactly what I said. I did never assert that these courses are useless. No, they are incredibly helpfull and can really improve your performance. But if you aim for 7+ , the course by itself is definitely not enough.

I haven't taken an online course but did the demo for Princeton Review's online course, and it was actually pretty cool (plus you then get a free CAT to take).

Yeah I agree with the guy that said Manhattan Review is great. I took one of their classes, in person, and went from 620 practice to 740 on the GMAT that I took about a month ago. They have online courses (which they pushed too because it's a 1.5 hr commute to NYC where the courses were).

But DEFINITELY study on your own. There is no way to get a 700+ just by going to class. You've got to put yourself into it and be committed. Self-study is ESSENTIAL.

Hi to all…..!!!

This is my first post here. A story of my Failures and “A Win”…..more like any fairy story which may have all failures and pitfalls….but ends on a happy note.

I am from Rural background from Rajasthan. My father is a farmer and my mom still thinks that New York and New Delhi are adjacent cities. IIT Days were good where you always feel that all are staring at you. But it was fun…I lost count of how many geek boyfriends I had….!!

But this story ismore about my failure story after IIT. I spent three years trying to get goodscore in CAT and GMAT.

My First Failure year

When most of the batch went for jobs, I decided to go for further studies. I enrolled for IMS Delhi. The class was nice, batch of 20 odd students. It was three months course where we were taught by teachers who used to look more confused than me. I ended up with CAT 84 percentile and GMAT score of 550. This is median score. I was dejected.

My Second Failure year

I searched for Online and offline courses. I enrolled in Career Launcher and couple of online courses. CL is a duplicate of IMS. I think all IMS teachers only teach in CL after completing their shift in IMS...Jokes apart….was also not very helpful. Online courses are more of recorded lectures or needless animations. My result also improved…GMAT 640 CAT 92.

My Final Third Year

This year I searched for any online course which should be interactive. I came to know that some of my friends got enrolled in 750+ batch in one philanthropic education company by the name EduShastra. This company runs very small batches of 5 or 7 students. And when I called them, they after some interaction, refused me. How can any coaching company refuse me…??.....I went to their office and met them. They took me in a regular batch, but after one month, I got promoted to 750+ batch of 7 students. I never felt comfortable with the teacher who used to ask questions after every concept. From IIT times, I am in the habit of half sleep syndrome (IITians understand what I am saying). My three months with them was not very happy days. But on the D-day I felt like a picnic.
