Should I take the MGMAT class? scored 670-710 on MGMAT CATS [#permalink] New post 29 Aug 2012, 14:50
I've been considering taking the 9 course in-person class that starts in mid September.

In the past year, I've gone through the 7 Strategy MGMAT books twice (all but RC). The first time I went through, I did both normal and advanced sections. The second time through, I only reviewed the normal section. I was getting a relatively high verbal score on my MGMAT Cats. I've taken all 6 already. However, I felt that the MGMAT cat verbals were not a good indicator of my verbal ability, since my GMATPREP2 and real GMAT verbal scores were a lot lower (please see below). I have also gone through the OG12 and supplemental books twice sans the RC section.

Anyway, my question is whether you think I will be able derive some value out of the course that will help improve my score? Or have I done most of the prep work that the course will cover? I mean I am sure I will be able to get something out of it, but is that something worth the time and the money invested?

I also signed up for e-GMAT and have begun going over that material as well.

My main weaknesses in verbal are mid - high difficulty CRs and high Difficulty RCs. My main weaknesses in Quant is my inability to solve mid-high difficulty questions within 2 mins and my trouble with solving mid-high difficulty DS questions. I am currently enrolled in the e-gmat verbal program, which I started last week. But I am thinking of adding your 9 course MGMAT section as well.

7/1 550 (Q32, V33) gmatprep 1 (baseline)

7/14 670 (Q42, V39 IR 3.87) mgmat 3 (ran out of time on the last 2 verbal questions)
7/21 660 (Q42, V38, IR 3.73) mgmat 4
7/24 710 (Q47, V40, IR 4.57) mgmat 5

QQ - What is your target score?

My $0.02 - not worth your time (at this stage of your prep) and not worth your money unless you have deep pockets.

If you try out the GMAT score estimator, you will get a decent estimate of your true level, based on your scores in tests. You can try out the free tests from Kaplan, Veritas, Princeton Review etc and do MGMATs 1 - 6 again.

GMATPrep is supposed to be the best estimator of your score, but in both your tests, you scores have dropped 30 -70 points in the main exam. Your test scores are the lowest among all your scores excluding the baseline exam. I think you need to figure out why this is happening.

I am guessing nerves.
