Hi, I have been out of school for a while and I am looking at obtaining an MBA. I am trying to decide which way to go with GMAT preparations. Kaplan or Princeton Review online? Classroom? Books? Appreciate your advice and feedback.

The Official Guide for GMAT Review is considered by most people to be a must-have. It's written by the people who run the GMAT, and contains over 1,400 questions. My advice is to use other prep materials/services first, and then start going through the entire book 2-3 months before you take the actual exam. I recommend doing it this way because you ideally want to already be in pretty good shape by the time you practice on the real questions, otherwise you're sort of "wasting" them.

I myself just used a Kaplan book (that came with a pretty good CD) and then the Official Guide. If you're considering prep courses, also consider Veritas. They're considered a little more high-end than PR or Kaplan, and people seem to be very satisfied with their classes. Also, Integrated Learning is another small one to consider. They do one-on-one tutoring. (Full disclosure: Veritas and Integrated Learning are partners of ours.) You may not need a prep class -- a good book or two is all that a lot of people use -- but I'd recommend checking those out if you consider going that route.

I think the choice of whether to take a course or study from a book depends on the person. I don't learn well from classroom lessons so I opted to study from books. My cousin recommended the Manhattan GMAT books; so, I studied using these books and the Official Guide. If you tend to learn better from classroom study and you need some extra motivation to study, I would take a course with Manhattan GMAT, Princeton Review, or Kaplan. I really like Manhattan GMAT and thought there lessons were useful. There material seemed more original and detailed compared to the cookie cutter stuff Kaplan and Princeton had.
