Before attending the course, I purchased the entire Manhattan GMAT book series to include the Advanced Quant book. I slowly studied the books for several months prior to attending the 9-session course. I believe this course of study was somewhat flawed. I found myself teaching myself fundamental concepts from the books that the course later reiterated. I recommend that people attend the course and then study independently with the books prior to taking the test.
I used the CAT exams offered on the MGMAT site, and they were very beneficial. My scores on my practice tests were below my score on test day.
CAT 1: 570 (35% Q, 69% V)
CAT 2: 640 (63% Q, 75% V)
CAT 3: 670 (64% Q, 84% V)
CAT 4: 650 (55% Q, 85% V)
On my last CAT, prior to the test, my score dropped to a 650, which was pretty discouraging, but I decided to take the test anyway and not focus on my latest CAT.
The Manhattan GMAT website is very comprehensive and has a myriad of resources that I found myself exploring frequently.
Private tutoring with Dmitry, my MGMAT instructor, was what I found most beneficial during my studies. I had several tutoring sessions prior to my test.
