I must mention that my preparation wasn't nearly as thorough as it could've/should've been. I used two books (McGraw Hill, Verbal and Math) which were enough to get me a double 710 on the GMATPreps with three weeks of practice, but no Official Guide, no Manhattan, nothing else... Come test day, I lacked DEPTH in my abilities and knowledge of the concepts, and I froze.

I intend on being much more thorough, with greater reservoirs of preparation. I've bought one more McGraw Hill book (low sample size but the reviews are poor!) which has four CAT tests in its DVD, as well as more test strategies; the OG Verbal and Quantitative; I'm considering getting Manhattan Number Properties, Inequalities and Sentence Correction; and considering trying Knewton. I refuse to improve by less than 100 points!


So, do you think the GMATPreps is a good indicator for your actually score? or was it way easier than the real test?

One would think that there's some reliability to the GMATPrep, normally, it should be in a plus or minus 20 point range, so normally I'd test anywhere between a 690 and a 730. My 630 was unusually poor. I really won't know until I try testing myself again after this second barrage of studying. A bit hard when you have a girlfriend, but we'll see...

After throughly analysing the reviews, I have enrolled myself in Knewton. Let us see how far it goes and I hope I can write a success story here.

I partially took a Manhattan GMAT course. I say partially because I didn't really avail myself mentally. I think that the materials are great but that one should do preliminary prep before enrolling in any course. It gives you a better idea of what you're dealing with content wise and also helps prepare you to be a better student, one who can truly take advantage of the knowledgebase of course instructors and tutors.

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!

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....

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?
