The title says it all!
I strongly recommend the Jamboree Munirka centre for the weekend GMAT classes. Only, make sure the Q & V teachers are the GMAt teachers and not GRE ones managing in the interim. Harmit (Q) and Mrs Abha (V) taught me and I am 101% thankful to them for the course corrections, advice and mentoring right until test day. I had targeted 680 (at 41 years and 16 years since my last Engg lesson at IITD, that's a tough ask!), but got 30+.
For those undecided on 'Classes' or 'Self', take the analogy of where you would go if you want to be assured of a cure - self medication or a doctor. And Jamboree has really good ones for that! If you ask me, anyday, I recommend Jamboree. Once enrolled, it is almost like it is their goal to make you do your best - never a moment when it feels they are after the money and numbers. Involvement, engagement, quality, commitment and results - 100%. Quality of classrooms is an aspect probably worth marginal improvement.

I am very pleased with the Veritas Gmat Full course which I attended this summer, and consider it to be a very good investment towards my overall GMAT score and subsequent professional career.

In particular would like to highlight that Amit, our instructor, was extremely good in providing us with the right tools in learning, understanding and cracking the test. Example is I found out very useful the SWIMMER technic in approaching CR questions, and feel now much more confident in facing the verbal part.

Further Amit managed to add to every lesson the right sense of humour and positive attitude which made the 3 hours session much more interesting and easy to comprehend. In conclusion I would be please to recommend Veritas to other GMAT takers.
