Right Strategy to Crack the 99th percentile [#permalink] New post 04 Apr 2014, 20:51
I took my first diagnostic (Gmat Prep 1) on March 4th and got 660. I am an engineer and pretty good with basic mathematics. After one month of superficial preparations (Manhattan GMAT strategy guides), yesterday I took the second test in GMAT Prep and scored 720 (49 quants and 39 verbal).

I can prepare intensively over the next two months. What is the right strategy to crack the 99th percentile. I have not joined any programs, and use only Manhattan GMAT strategy guides, while I find it extremely good for verbal preparation, the quants section is pretty basic and not challenging at all.

What is the right strategy/tools/books/courses that can help me with my pursuit.

You sound like a perfect candidate for my book, GMAT Clarity. It teaches you how to self-study optimally, and I think self-study makes sense for you. Based on your last CAT, you can focus most of your prep on Verbal. GMAT Clarity will show you how to get the most out of the MGMAT Verbal guides and OGs for practice.

Otherwise, if you are looking for a course, MGMAT and Veritas have very good reputations.

My suggestion is to look for a program that offers a score guarantee. Economist GMAT Tutor is so confident that you will improve at least 50 points (or 70 if you choose the Premium and Ultimate Prep programs), it will offer you your money back if you don't improve. In fact, we just conducted a survey and learned that about 25% of our students improve 90 points or more.

Regards,

Elizabeth
