Princeton Review Online $599 or Kaplain Review Online $599 [#permalink] New post 09 Dec 2003, 13:34
Do you guys recommend these courses? Does anyone have any feedback about what is offered? It appears as though both Princeton and Kaplain offer you their in-class prep. materials as well as access to a multitude of test questions.

What are your suggestions/recommendations?

Thanks,
CJ

Have you done the demos of the online course? I would suggest doing that so you can see what they offer.

I really prefer PR's approach to the GMAT, so I personally would do their course. Their course materials are reputed to be really stellar. I think Kaplan uses the same materials in their courses that they sell in bookstores (PR has different ones), so be sure to check into that.

Cartman,

Have you taken the Princeton Review course (actual class) or the online version?

I did an online PR course and thought it was very good.

I did the online PR course too. I scored 610 on my first diagnostic test, and nailed a 720 on the real test after using their materials. I would definitely give it my recommendation. :-D

If you are tight on money, I suggest you study on your own and spend at least 8 hours per day on GMAT for 4 to 6 weeks. I have never took any preparation courses. English is my second language also. To prepare for the exame, I did most of the materials available on the market and some extras not on the US market. (to see a list of the materials I used, you have to check the buy/sell section of this forum, it's way too long for me to post it here) After one and half month of study, I scored 760 on first shot. I heard from friends that if you are already very good at quan, then you don't have to join any preparation course. So I didn't. As a result, I got 50 for math and 42 for verbal on the exam without any course and saved tons of money. I also heard that prepartion courses deflate your score for the diagnositc exam in order to make you very satisfied with their results.

Good luck on your exam. Oh yeah, make sure you drink red bull during your math to verbal test break. I find it helpful.

My Opinion [#permalink] New post 15 Dec 2003, 08:54
I personally would not recommend the Princeton Review class. I spent roughly $1000 CDN on it and my score was not that great. Luckily I got into a top school due to my work experience and references. If you are keen on spending such a large amount on a prep course may I suggest that you use that money and buy self study guides and review on your own.

Well, you know, a course alone isn't going to give you a great score. You have to work your butt off and go in well prepared. Not to say you didn't, but a course is there to give you a solid foundation in the principles of how to take a standardized test, and get you in testing mode. It's up to us to make it all happen on test day.
