Hi there!
I am interested in taking either Kaplan or Princeton Review to brush up a bit on the damn GMAT, any advices on which one is better? I mean, is the money worth it, the materials, time and etc…

Thank you so much for your help.

From what I have read on this forum, those classes prepare you for an average score. If you wish to score higher than 600-650, I believe self studying will be a better option.

The majority of classes teach a "one size fits all" methodology from the perspective that students have no clue about the test whatsoever. They teach you how to backsolve, pick numbers, eliminate, and avoid simple traps. Save yourself a bundle of cash and read the answer explanations yourself, then practice on the forum whenever possible. I paid the hefty fee Kaplan chrages and did not improve from the baseline score despite doing every single practice problem they offer. No test prep company has the magic key to open the 700+ door, it takes effort and dedication.

Thank you for taking the time to reply, I appreciate it. You are absolutely right, it takes time and dedication and that is exactly what I am doing in the next 2 months. I need to get into 680+ God willing.
Thank you so much, I appreciate it very very much.
