Cramming for GMAT: Use MGMAT videos, books, or both? [#permalink] New post 02 Jan 2012, 20:31
Hey guys,

I need some advice. I recently enrolled in a self-study Manhattan GMAT prep course, but I only have one month of study time left before my exam. I'm wondering whether it would be worth it to spend time watching the 3 hour video recordings of the Manhattan course online, or would my time be better spent reading the study guides? Would I miss out on anything by just reading the guides and not watching the videos?

Thanks!

I would say you want to cover the videos if you can (you paid for them, and they also go deeper than the books , or at least they are supposed to).

However, this comes down to the best way for you to absorb information and study. Some don't do it well with a computer screen and prefer books (this would be me most likely though I never truly tried). Others thrive with videos. You need to figure out which camp you are in.

you can do a few things:
1. study off the books and then watch videos only for the subjects you have a hard time with (or the other way around)
2. study off the books and then watch a video for every subject
3. watch videos first and then do the books

However, a big word of caution. studying 3 hours in a row is tough and may be unproductive esp after a long work day. I would highly recommend doing it in the morning or splitting the session into 2 sections with a break in the middle.

P.S. Did you get a copy of MGMAT Road Map? I recommend it.
