Knewton in 2 weeks fulltime [#permalink] New post 23 Jul 2010, 23:33
Hi everyone!

Just after a bit of advice... have been studying for 3 months (20 hrs a week) and am not getting the results that I hoped for...

I'm taking 2 weeks off work before the test and was wondering if it is possible to cram the knewton course into 2 weeks full time (60-80hrs per week)?

Any insights that you may have would be greatly appreciated.

I took the knewton course and wouldn't recommend doing it in just 2 weeks. They have a lot of material there (12 classes, course work and 5 CATs) Also if you don't complete the coursework you will not be eligible for the money back guarantee.

That said, the knewton course is wonderful if you have a good 4 weeks of study.

I am moving this into the Knewton forum.
I think it will be tough to take a full advantage of the class in 2 weeks and frankly hard to effect change.

My suggestion would be to take the class in 1-2 months and move the test date instead but of course you do what you have to do. You can always take your chances and see where you get with 2 weeks..

I am also pinging Chris and Josh to see if they have a word of advice.

Regaz,

I had the same mindset as you - I did the Knewton course for about 3 weeks (2 weeks while working FT, and 1 week without work prior to my scheduled test).

While I believe it is possible to finish the course materials (all lectures, assessments + hw problems, and 5 CATs), I do believe that it was too tight a timeline to fully absorb everything to your maximum benefit. For me, getting through material in 3 weeks as not that bad, but I felt that I didn't have the time to go over my errors, which makes for a big part of truly improving your score.

Knewton was a decent testprep course, but to utilize it exclusively in your 2 weeks may not be the best idea. Ideally, you would obtain an understanding of your weak areas, and then focus on resources that may more specifically help you address your weakness. (MGMAT SC for SC, GC Tests for Q, etc.) I personally blazed through the second part of the course just so that I could qualify for the "50 point guarantee", at perhaps the sacrifice of really targeting and improving my weak points.

Anyhow, that's just my experience - I wish you the best of luck!

Hey everyone, thanks for the great thread.

Yes, Knewton has all the materials available to you whenever you need them. The full class can be taken on demand, whenever it's convenient for you.

That said, it's never a great plan to prep for the GMAT in only 2 weeks. I'm sure you've heard it before but students really have to STUDY for the GMAT. There is no silver bullet. Preparation entails a lot of repetition and problem solving, and this ideally take place over a > 8-week window.

And while Knewton may be advantageous for someone who MUST take the test only two weeks later -- it's rarely something we recommend.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks!
Josh
