GMAT Online Prep Course [#permalink] New post 07 Dec 2012, 00:09
I am an Indian student with BE in Electronics, MS in Computer Science with pretty good quantitative skills. After 5 year, I am planning to re-take the GMAT. I read lots and lots of reviews which ultimately confused me. So in short I need an Opinion/Advise as to take which online course - Kaplan, Knewton, MGMAT, GMAT Pill, PR.
Weakness : Verbal(but obvious) and need to strengthen Quantitative part. So I need a coursework that could strengthen my fundamentals especially verbal.

Also the course should be done in max one month.

Unfortunately, no comprehensive course is going to wrap up in less than a month. Our course is 9 weeks, not counting time off for the holidays. If you must take the exam within a month, I'd recommend that you sign up for our guided self-study program. You get all the books, and you can access recordings of all the course sessions, so you can work through them at an accelerated pace. The challenge will be making enough progress on that schedule. What kind of score improvement are you shooting for?

590 to 700 in one month is nearly impossible to accomplish for someone starting fresh. If you've already studied and are out of practice, it could be even tougher. I hate to be discouraging, but you may need to think about adjusting your time line and/or score goal. Remember that a 700 puts you ahead of 90% of test-takers, and people taking the GMAT are bright, educated, dedicated people who often put a great deal of effort into preparation. Getting to the top of that group usually takes a while. Good luck!

I have already been practicing on my own and know my weak spots which I need to strengthen :
RC, Permutation and Combination, SC and solving problems within a stipulated time.

I have already completed almost 60-70% of official gmat book.

What I am looking for is a quick refresh on all the topics and looking for right techniques to solve problem efficiently.

Currently, I had the following schedule in mind :
8Dec - 10 Jan - On demand Course,
10 Jan - 1st week of feb practice as much as I can (i mean 6-8 hrs a day)

then exams around 15 feb.

Please advise.

Hmm, well in that case the self-study package might make a lot of sense, especially because you could back up or repeat if you needed more than a month to get through the material.

As you work through the OG, make sure you are taking time to review all your work, ideally before you even check the answers. Most of your time should be spent reviewing & understanding what you've been working on.

Good luck!
