I am enrolled in a classroom course which starts on 4/19. I am using the 2005 Kaplan Prep book and I am really struggling with the Quantitative material.

My Undergrad degree was in CJ at U of D and was accepted into a program allowing me to take up to 9 Graduate course credits before taking the GMAT. I completed the three courses and have a 3.55 GPA, but now I have to take the test that I have been fearing (June 8th). The Dean of Admissions says I really only need a 500-550 to be accepted due to my grades. Any advice would be appreciated.

What course are you taking?

Here's how to get the most out of your course and get your best score:

1) Attend every class, and do all the homework
2) ASK questions and ask the instructor for help before or after class if you need it. You're paying good money, so don't be afraid to speak up.
3) Keep an error log as described on this site and make sure you don't give up when it's not clicking. It WILL if you keep at it and ask for help.
4) Take advantage of the help in these forums. It's free and we're all right here with you on the journey!

Good luck!

Is this with Kaplan?

If you have the spare money, I'm a huge fan of the Manhattan books.

Frankly, I found Kaplan's strategies and methods useless and confusing. Ditto for much of princeton's. Manhattan is the only book series I've seen that really starts from the bottom up and teaches you everything in manageable pieces.

Your grades indicate you can handle the material. That should be a comfort as you prepare for the actual test.

The GMAT puts '500' as the 'average' person's score, so someone who prepares and studies seriously should have no problems. You're already on course, so at this point study, work on the areas where you know you need the most attention, but also stay confident; you're already in good shape.

Good luck!
