Is it possible to score a good GMAT score without taking e-gmat online course? And doing on ones own?

Hi snamehra,

When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are lots of different study materials that you could use - but no GMAT product is a 'magic wand.' You have to learn the necessary content - and since the GMAT is consistent and predictable, you CAN train to take advantage of that predictability (by learning the patterns, Tactics and little 'secrets' to the Exam). From your prior posts over the last 10 months, it's not clear how you have been studying. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Of course. There is no prep course that is absolutely required for the GMAT. If you want to take a look at how some people prepared on their own, see the posts here.

Yes Sure !

1) I have been studying since almost 2 months though only for 2 to 3 hrs some days in beginning to now trying to study for more

2) I have used Manhattan Quant Strategy guides and Powerscore for CR

3) I have not taken any of CAT in between my practice as I am left with SC so was planning to take mock after that .
Though in My diagnostic mock I got a V15 and Q45

4) I want to score a 700 plus

5) planning to give in December this year

6) Apply by January

7) I want to do an MSc Finance from LSE

Thanks

Hi Sana Mehra,

If you're planning to take the GMAT in December, then we really need to define your current GMAT skills, strengths and weaknesses. As such, I strongly recommend that you take one of the Official GMAC CATs sometime soon - perhaps this weekend. Make sure to take it in a realistic fashion (take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.). Once you have that score, you should report back here and we can discuss how best to proceed.

HI snamehra,

I guess you are asking whether it’s necessary to take a GMAT course in order to score well on the GMAT? To answer that question, it would be helpful to know more about your situation with the GMAT. Once you respond to the questions asked, I can provide some detailed advice.
