Hi Guys,
i am in a dilemma whether to choose knewton or Gmatpill.. My main concern is verbal where i have scoring an avg of 34. Both the courses offer money back guarantee if they fail to improve the score by 50points
Knewton- seems more traditional approach and worth $349
Gmatpill- the founder claims a 1mnth plan is sufficient to improve the score considerably, but i am not really sure if it's possible ( i would definitely prefer a shortcut to success at this point)-Cost: $312 for entire course and $199 for only Verbal course

Guys- can you please post your reviews about the two courses and how effective they are in improving the score..i still have 2 mnths for my G-day

I am also in the same dilemma and I also have to add e-gmat to that list. I am looking to increase my 34 verbal score which i got in my last attempt. Have you checked the preview available at gmatpill? The teaching method didn't fit well for my style of learning. Will decide which one to pick in a couple of days. The money back guarantee is what caught my attention since I have 700 from my previous attempt.

I took the GMAT pill SC course and it was of no help at all. Also it is very general and does not give anything better than what you can get by reading MGMAT SC. I got really low score of V 27, now I am thinking of enrolling in Knewton.

Thanks for the info ritu230
reg Knewton's verbal material- I have enrolled for knewton course. I would like to know how good the material and its questions are relative to the ACTUAL gmat verbal questions. Do you attribute any improvement in your verbal score to knewton?

Thanks,LC

Good Luck.
Did you sign up with Knewton via GMAT Club link?
if so, you will also get access to the GMAT Club Tests.

I thought i did. Am I supposed to have access to all of the tests? or only the Knewton ones?

Best of luck my friend. Go through each and every lessons of knewton, they are awesome. Also read their concept library. Their concept library is a little hard to navigate but still I will say go through all of the library. In fact I copied each and every page of their library into open office document and then into a pdf book of 90 page just for sentence correction alone. I am finding this book on par with mgmt sc guide and it is helping me increase my accuracy on sc. Hope you will take benefit of all these and ace the gmat. Best of luck again!

I used Princeton Review's classroom course, wanted to take MGMAT but couldn't make it fit into my work schedule.

I found PR to be pretty average. My class only had 5 people in it, so I was expecting a lot of catered instruction, and I made it clear to the instructor that I wanted to score 700+. What really turned me off was my instructor hadn't taken an actual GMAT in years, and couldn't even remember what her score was! IMO, if you are teaching a GMAT Prep class, you should be required by your parent organization to sit and take the REAL GMAT on a recurring basis (I really don't care how often, perhaps once a year?), in order to stay on the up and up with the latest trends on the test! I guarantee things are somewhat different now than they were when she took the test. This is why I wanted MGMAT, where all instructors score 760+ and take the exam frequently.

PR was designed for someone looking to score 550-650, definitely not 700+. While they have resources and advanced drills to help people with those goals, it's just not the same as having a living instructor who engages with you regularly to help you through the process of reaching a 90th percentile score. After all, that's why you're paying $1000+ for the class instead of $25 for an advanced quant book or SC guide.

I ended up scoring a 750 on the real GMAT, but I attribute this primarily to the exhaustive prep I did on my own, (200-300 hours over 4 months) using all the MGMAT books and OGs plus supplementary OGs, plus some GMAT Club tests.

On the whole, I wouldn't recommend PR if you can go for MGMAT's class (even the online one, which I have seen and the format is essentially just as good as being there in real life). PR was ok for some basics and study techniques, but I think you can get more from your money elsewhere.

I have a question about the Manhattan 9 Session Prep Course.

I already bought the 8 Strategy guides as well as the Offical Guide (12th ed) - is there any way to get a discount on the course if do not want to get the books again? (i.e. deduct the price for the books from the total course fee...)

Thanks for your help!

I believe You can actually get a discount (don't quote me on it) - just check with the MGMAT representative and they will give you a credit (won't ship the books either)
