This was my first test prep resource. I just bought the Kaplan GMAT Premier 2012-13 book and logged into the website. I thought I could just study on my own and do very well. I tried to memorize all the shortcuts as well as the information in the books.

Unfortunately,that is completely the wrong way to go about it.

Luckily there are several quizzes and CAT test online. I took all 7 quizzes, IR practice sets, and online essays. These were invaluable in understanding how the format of the test worked. I really capitalized on these tests on my second go round.

Though the book was thorough enough, the online aspects of the course seemed particularly lacking. For no apparent reason, some of the online components would not load on my home computer. I contacted Kaplan's customer service about the problem and received no response. Despite this setback, I still managed to do well on my GMAT but Kaplan had little to do with it.

The book does provide very detailed explanations of all of the question types but the number of practice problems provided, both in the book and online, were not sufficient. I sought out free practice problems from other online services and found these products to be more useful.

Really Disappointed with the Results

I took my first practice test 6 weeks before my test day and got a 490. I did the homework and took the CATs each week, but it quickly became apparent I wouldn't be able to finish all the homework and the CATs with my work schedule. You really need a solid three months. The week before the test I scored a 600 and felt good about where I was. (I didn't invest hardly any time in the IR because my school told me they didn't use it, so I was getting 2's and 3's on that) Test day came and I followed all the advice and applied what I had learned confidently and calmly. You can imagine my surprise when my score appeared...a 470 (20 points lower than my diagnostic 6 weeks before and 130 points lower than my score just the week before, my IR score ended up being a 6, again with minimal effort). I took another practice test the next week and scored a 560. I still (somehow) got into my dream school, so I'm not retaking the course, but I wish I had finished all the homework and tests just so I could get my money back. I would pick a different company in retrospect...something wasn't right with Kaplan's scoring or methods...for me anyways!

As far as the classes go, I felt like the material was either way too simplistic or way too far above me. I would go from wanting to speed the instructor through a topic I already mastered, to wanting him to slow down so I could process it. I was able to take away a lot of good information especially from the quantitative section, but you sure wouldn't know it from my final scores.

I am into the 3rd week of the course and I can see the improvement on my quizzes.

Course comes will lots of online study material and few books to study offline. I liked the books issued by the Kaplan with course. Kaplan Smart Reports are too good to improve your weakness and practice according to one's needs.

Online classes are engaging and teachers assist you in all possible ways. At customer care, I can say, they really care. I get my questions solved within less than 8hours!

There is a question bank, which I am loving, of more than 1200 questions to practice. Hope to see desired score on test day with Kaplan practice tools.
