Been always more of a lurker around the forum. I was slightly unmotivated after my last score (520) with just self study. I have all the Manhattan GMAT books
, the official books and the Kaplan
Guess I have to face that for my case self-study will not be enough, that I need at least someone to be able to coach me through. My main issues are with the Quant part. Could anyone help refer me to a course or a tutor or even a online course here in Shenzhen? I live next to HK and since I have a full time job I wouldn't be able to go cross-border that frequently..
If anyone can help it would be much appreciated! I really hope to get into a MBA this turn around.
I'm sorry to hear about your low score the first time. It does sound like re-taking the GMAT is a good idea. I am glad to hear you have the MGMAT, which are arguably the best resources in print.
