Hi! I 'm going to take on-line course of GMAT. Currently I study myself using Manhattan books. Does it make sense to take on-line course different from Manhattan. Thank you.

yes, i had the same question, thanks for starting the thread. a friend of mine told that we should evaluate if we need the course based on the GMAT prep 1 results. MGMAT Books are self-sufficient in a way though, course might be a waste of time.

While some may feel more comfortable with relying on Manhattan for both self-study and an online course, an argument can certainly be made for combining different sources. There are members here who used Manhattan and enrolled in a Knewton online course, for example.

The key is to find the best fit for you. If you truly feel that an online course will help you, then find one that meets your criteria. But there's also a chance that the MGMAT series, along with some additional practice problems (OG, GMATClub tests, etc.) will be enough for a solid score.

Here's a list of all GMAT course options for you:

Thanks! considering that GMAT club tests are the toughest (from all the info I gather from various threads) what should be the best time to buy them (I have just started preparing for GMAT-to give in first week of sept2011), right now I have solved OG 12the edition completely.

The GMATClub tests should come into play toward the end of your preparation.

I took the MGMAT course and I was glad I did. It helped me boost my score from the high 600's into the low 700's.

Having said that, I actually won the course so if I had paid out of my pocket, I probably would have been a little disappointed. Not a bash on MGMAT by any means, but I already had some of the MGMAT guides and there wasn't a great amount of new content in the course. The instructors were phenomenal though and considering I didn't pay a dime, it met my needs.

If you have all the MGMAT guides and you're self-disciplined to study on your own then I would skip the MGMAT course. I can't really speak to any courses from other companies, but I was disappointed with the Kaplan Premier book - it turned me off Kaplan.

You can look into Knewton - they have a really good deal going on and give a 50 point guarantee. (this is from the standpoint of cost). Suggest you look into it!

I took the Kaplan online class and though it was really good. They have 9 CAT's and ton's of quizzes. Also the class videos are great.

You can't go wrong with Manhattan. Plus, you'll get access to all their online resources (other than the CATS).
