Re: GMAT Prep courses/classes reviews, ratings, discount offers [#permalink] New post 30 Jan 2010, 12:18
Hi Guys,

I have gone through a chunk of OG (and some of GMATCubs practice questions) and scored 690 on the OG's diagnostic tests but want to get up to 720. I took the diagnostic test twice - once before practicing and once after the score did not change whatsoever :|

From reading the reviews it does not sound like Kaplan's in-class prep would be a good fit for me. I am not sure whether Kaplan Advanced would be any good? Or if I should just go with Knewton because of the good reviews they get even though it is online.

My questions:
- What good in-class GMAT prep course would you recommend for someone who wants to increase their score by 30-50 points? Kaplan Advanced or Manhattan Review or...?
- If no such in-class course exists, would you simply recommend Knewton or even doing more practice problems through the many books/GmatClub's practice problems that are available?

You help is much appreciated. Thanks!

One advantage you have with Knewton is the 50-point money back guarantee (if you don't get 740, you get your money back). You will also get GMAT Club tests for free if you use our promo code to sign up (GC-Knewton-GMAT).

As to others, I have not taken any, so you have to rely on the feedback from reviews to make your selection.

Finally, consider browsing through this thread: should-i-retake-gmat-thread-retaking-gmat-strategies-83339.html
Do you really need to bump your score more?

Thanks bb! The points you make make sense. I am an Indian male but with a non-IT background however :) I am leaning towards Knewton because like you say there is nothing to lose except some time.

Just FYI - I have not taken any classes, so don't base your judgment on my comments :)
Knewton seems like a safer option due to the 50 point guarantee, but it is an online class and may or may not work. Just a disclaimer - I am not trying to sell you on it.

Re: GMAT Prep course/class reviews, ratings, discount codes [#permalink] New post 24 Feb 2010, 12:09
Thanks for the comprehensive listing of all providers. Several things I'm still on the fence about:

- Self Study: While this post shows all of the providers' info, there is another post ("best-gmat-books-reviews-recommendations-for-your-prep-77703") that implies the books themselves are sufficient. Are there any discussions comparing one approach vs the other?

- Class vs Otherwise: Posts describing the quality of class sessions are helpful, but many people (myself included) have to travel extensively for work and can't just go to a pre-determined class. Are there any reviews of online or CD options for classes?

Thanks.

Take a gmat prep diagnostic test and figure out where you stand.
Taking a class is usually the better option for those who value their time highly but it is a more expensive option too.

I would like to put my two cents in this very informative thread.....
I used this website to find out the best study sources and shortlisted to MGMAT and GMAXonline. i bought MGMAT sentence correction guide to start but was too lazy to start reading. Then i decided to purchase GMAXonline and it really made GMAT interesting coz i could watch the online lectures while sitting in a bathtub or even while cooking. The key to a good score in GMAT is to study everyday, but after a hard day of work sometimes its really hard to get back to books. the lecture definitely made studying more lively and gave me the extra push that i needed to cross the 700 mark. I ended up with a 730 score and a lot of credit for that goes to GMAXonline.
Since i was on a tight budget when i started my prep, i didn't feel like spending $400 for the course, so i ended up dividing the number of views between me and my friend. Since GMAX gives u 90 views for 30 lectures, we both managed to watch every lecture and a repeat of the topics we found a little tough.
Overall, a 5 star rating from me to GMAXonline....

Thanks for the info on the prep courses. I found this GMAT EBook, some good strategies and information worth a look. Looks interesting, thoughts?

Hi Im trying to decided between a manhattan gmat 9 class course, or a princeton review or kaplan course...any recommendations on who's better? Im taking it in nyc and I heard the mgmat instructors are a little cocky, and being that nyc is full of investment bankers, I dont want to end up in a class where im at a disadvantage with my marketing background...any thoughts? thanks for the help!

I have never taken the gmat but im originally from south america, went to college in the us, but need a lot of help in the verbal part, especially vocab since english is not my first language, but i was able to go to notre dame for college though.

When did most GMAT testers take classes? I'm planning on using book materials and practice tests before taking the GMAT a first time.

After that, I'm planning to take a class and then re-take the GMAT for a second time.

Anyone with more knowledge than me care to comment on this strategy?

FWIW, a number of years back I took the test having used ONLY the Princeton Review GMAT book. My scores went from 617 to 680.

MLIC Test Prep. [#permalink] New post 07 Oct 2010, 03:05
I am writing this as a warning to people searching for test prep materials. My experience with MLIC Turboprep is one that should not be repeated.

After paying $1400 and receiving confirmation that I had a place in the upcoming weekend class, I received a series of unorganized and incomprehensible pdf files with impertinent information and exercises. Then, I received an e-mail saying that I was going to be moved out of the class I signed up for and placed into another one. After explaining to them that this was not possible (I was going to be out of town), they said it was out of their hands and there was nothing they or I could do.

Reasonably, I was not happy. They said they would not offer a refund, and therefore I went to my credit card company to appeal the charges. After a long back-and-forth, I did not receive the services promised and was forced to pay for them anyway. As a customer, I have never been treated so disrespectfully, and I got the impression that it was not the first time MLIC has dealt with unhappy customers and disputed charges.

I warn you not to partake in this scam. I used other materials to prepare for the GRE, including Kaplan and PowerScore (which I was very pleased with) and I scored a 1450. Kaplan is challenging and good for those who plan on getting a high score, and PowerScore offers a great and affordable weekend course along with some good test strategies.

I have been told that the LSAT prep courses over prepare you for the GMAT and I should invest in these instead of the GMAT prep courses. Any truth to this?

How does Knewton's 50 Point guarantee works?
Meaning If I have already written GMAT and got say 650. So after Completing the Knewton course I can expect a 700 and if did not get it I will get a refund?
Also what if I am writing the GMAT for very first time
