Hey guys,

I took one CAT (GMAT Prep 1) and scored a 520. I'm planning to take the GMAT in June (I'm scheduled May 22 but I'm going to postpone another few weeks because I need to really improve in quant. Currently finished going through the MGMAT books and now i'm beginning to go through math problems in the OG 2018 Quant book (will move to the verbal review, then the larger 2018 OG book).

I have a friend who is spending $1900 for the Manhattan GMAT in-person course and says it's incredible, but I'm taking the GMAT as an option to go to B-school, so I don't want to shell out that kind of money.

What are some excellent opportunities? I'm hearing some mixed feedback for Math Revolution. Heard E-Gmat has a good verbal section to study.

A lot of the reviews come off as "Perfect" reviews, so I'd like to hear what people here think.

Hey surfingpirate

IMO, you could use eGMAT (GMAT Online) to improve your understanding of
GMAT Verbal and Quant. There are 90+ hours of Verbal Video Lessons and
40+ hours of Quant Video lessons. This package costs $299.

They also offer the GMATClub Prep tests free with this package which is an
awesome resource for improving your Quant skills. There are some 1300+
Quant questions which should be enough practice to improve your Quant
skills!

You could also check these links for more GMAT Quant related information
1.GMATClub Quantitative Mega-Thread
2.ALL YOU NEED FOR QUANT ! ! !
3.PS Directory by Topic and Difficulty
4.DS Directory by Topic and Difficulty

The third and fourth links are for additional practice.

The GMATPrep tests are slightly tougher than the real thing.
My advice would be to start with the third and fourth links after you have
a clear understanding of the concepts(which you should have by studying
from the Manhattan Strategy Guides/eGMAT and supplement it with the 1st
link)

Hope this helps you!

Hey surfingpirate
It really depends how you are comfortable studying. If you think self-study suits you, a prime resource should be the OG, since that is the only place where you will find official GMAT questions. Here's a blog post on how to best use the OG: http://exampal.com/gmat/blog/prepare-gm ... ial-guide/
But as you will read there, this isn't enough. You need to build a study plan which incorporates reviewing your practice, and learning from your mistakes. Here are some suggestions how to to do that for the time span you are going for: http://exampal.com/gmat/blog/prepare-gmat-60-days/

Aside from that, at examPAL, all of our video lessons across all topics are free, so you should definitely check that out.

If, however, you are looking for an actual course, examPAL is one of a few that could fit your budget.

You can certainly improve your Quant just by solving questions on GMAT club. We have enough content that can take your score quite high. GMAT club quant questions are quite difficult and you can have a enough practice material from here. IMO e-gmat is a good course for Verbal and to an extent for Quant too. Also, Magoosh is quite reasonable with enough practice questions and CATs.

You can also go free trail of courses from GC home page. Most of the test prep companies provide weekly free trails. You can check yourself and try.

Hi, surfingpirate, I'd like to recommend https://www.gmatprepnow.com/ for Quant (I haven't gone through verbal lessons, yet), if you're still looking to buy two courses separately for Quant and Verbal to strengthen your foundation. Some of the video lessons are free, so you can give it a try before deciding.

I find GMATPrepNow video lessons precise and extremely useful -- I don't have a strong quant background, but I'm beginning to gain the much needed confidence to face quant questions as their math videos are helping me solidify the basics I had learned using MGMAT guides. At the end of each video, you will find links (to gmatclub and other sites) to questions related to the lesson you've learned under the reinforcement activities section.

For verbal, please go through this thread https://gmatclub.com/forum/every-video- ... 21133.html if you're interested.

Hope this helps!
