eGmat courses + self prep or Princeton review [#permalink] New post 01 Jun 2013, 01:17
2 months and that's all I have for the preparation. I have already started with 'Quants'. I think I can manage quants with the MGMAT books that I have. I need help for Verbal. Should I go for the eGmat verbal classes worth $199 or go for well rated tutors 'Princeton review' for quants and verbal, costing $400. I am confused and would love if the one's who have taken GMAT, would help.

Option 1) Will self prep with MGMAT for Quants + eGmat online course help
Option 2) Princeton review for complete coaching (2.5 months)

Which one ? I should score above 700 at all costs.

The MGMAT books are generally considered the best in the business. From Verbal to Quant they give you a good knowlegde.
The MGMAT SC book is considered the bible for the argument and it's a must have, and also the quant book are pretty good: I am studying from the MGMAT Advanced Quant right now and I quite like it.

You may wanna take a look at the reviews of your courses also:
eGmat: http://gmatclub.com/reviews/e-gmat-6
Princeton: http://gmatclub.com/reviews/princeton-review-345345500

The answer to your question should be based on weather your quant is good or no. If you are preparing your quant, you see improvements and you are satisfied with your scores, there is no need to pay for a complete coaching. If that's the case, go for the e-Gmat course.
If you are stuck, cannot improve your Q, then go for the Princeton course (but this option costs twice as much also, so a point to the eGmat option here).

Hope this helps

I have started with MGMAT quants. Should I go for MGMAT Advanced quants too? Is it a separate resource other than the 5 books that we get in the bundle of 8 books?

I would recommend to hold off with the advanced quant. A number of people (including your truly here) feel that the book is hard beyond the need. I frankly struggle with most questions in it to complete within even 3-4 mins.

Focus on nailing down the 5 mgmat books for quant. That's much more critical.

Good luck!

Thanks dear bb. I will complete these 5 books for quant, and practice here at gmatclub. I think this should take care of my quant preparation. Most probably, I might go for eGmat course if I find it difficult to deal with MGMAT verbal.
