Many Thanks for creating such a detailed forum about GMAT. I always get most of questions answered just by browsing in the forum. I alway receive immediate reply to my quant doubts from the forum members and I really appreciate that.
From the subject line, you might get what my question here is,
Whether to join a preparation class or not ? I know this is completely individual decision and depending upon everybody's capability , the answer varies. However I need your help to decide this.
I read all the reviews given in this forum. My question is, does a coaching class really improves scores ?
Before that, few lines about my studies.
I am an Asian female, worked in IT few years. currently I am not working.
I started studying for GMAT in April and studied for around 3 months now (around 2 hours daily including weekends). My target score is 750. I have solved Princeton Review
, OG 12
and half of OG 10
. Done Manhattan SC
and CR bible. I have all the required and right books mentioned in this forum.
Recently, I gave mock and my score in power prep is 630 (Q 47and v 30) and Mgmat is 600 (Q 39 and V 34). Compared to verbal I am better in Maths overall. Although I am not perfect on concepts like probability, I need to work on them more now and I am studying at least 4 hours daily.
RC is major problem area for me and accuracy in CR is 85-90% and SC is 80% in OG
while in RC, it is only 50% but I am sure I can improve by practicing. I have not taken GMAT date yet. Once I will start getting better scores in mocks then I will take a GMAT. Getting gmat date is easy in this country where I am residing now because only a handful of people appear for GMAT. I just want to make sure that my preparation is near my dream score before appearing for the actual exam.
Now after long opening sentences, here comes the actual question.
I am thinking to join Knewton
classes. They have the most economic offer present in the market. Whether I join Knewton
or not I am going to take GMAT club Maths tests anyway. After reading all the reviews, I am not able to decide on it. How much a coaching classes can improve in any body's performance? will it be beneficial to somebody like me? I know it's not easy to answer this, but I will appreciate if your answer helps me even little to decide upon.
Can somebody please help me to decide? Also reviews from those who completed/attending Knewton
classes are welcomed.
Thanks and Regards,
