GMAT options in the UAE - Dubai/Abu Dhabi [#permalink] New post 19 Sep 2010, 22:16
Hi.

Im a resident of UAE and looking to start the GMAT study process. Im looking at the following options:
- Princeton Review: Iv received bad review about them
- Manhattan: Great review however they dont conduct face to face classes in the region and thus I'll have to take an online course with them :-S
- Anees Hussain: A great and renowned tutor from back home i.e. Pakistan. Friends vouch for his A levels, LCAT, Local university entrance test classes and the like (none of my contacts have taken GMAT classes with him though)

I will appreciate feedback regarding the same especially from people in the UAE.

P.S. Would be great to have a study partner too!

Regards,

A

Welcome to the gmatclub!

Yes, I also won't recommend the use of The Princeton Review books. Use Veritas or MGMAT books.

Hi freeverse, welcome to the club.

I didn't hear about Anees in Pakistan, (perhaps I am in the capital city & not in Karachi :roll: ). Any how, my suggestion will be to consider MGMAT (the high ranked in the market). Gmat Club along with MGMAT is quite sufficient to take you beyond 700. Participate in the forums here & you will feel the difference.

You can contact (pm) me any time & I wil be more than happy to hear you. Best of luck & keep us posted.

Hi Freeverse,

I am in Dubai and am following a self-study program. The details are in the topic below. But the short and sweet is that the latest OGs along with the 8 MGMAT Strategy Guides should be your main books of study. There are available in Dubai Mall in a store called Book World Kinokuniya.

Deciding to enroll in a course is a personal decision and depends on one's preference to learn. But most people do self-study which does require a lot of discipline.
