I started the MGMAT 9-session course in September 2013 and took the exam in August 2014. To be frank, I didn't really start studying until ~July 2014. The punch-line is this: you MUST do the homework. While I will say I benefited from the class, I did myself a huge disservice to not put in the hours WHILE I was taking the class. That said, the MGMAT books and web system are so strong that I was able to refresh much of what was taught in the class, and advance beyond. Wait until you're in a position to truly dedicate several months, then take the course, and plan on taking the exam a few weeks later. Good luck.

I signed up for a 9 week Manhattan GMAT course after trying to study on my own. I realized that I needed to sign up for a course and I learn better in person (it also ensures that you go to class and don't procrastinate watching videos online). I started with a practice score of 560.

David was a great instructor and the course really provided me with the tools to understand the test and the tactics I needed to vastly improve my test score to 710 and also feel much more confident going into the test. On top of the great in-person instruction, it was a great resource to be able to review sessions online. There are also a ton of other resources and study aids on their site. I probably only accessed about a quarter of them!

I can't recommend Manhattan GMAT and David enough!
