Hi all!

I need some advice to pick a GMAT course. I took the exam back on October and got a 720 (50 quant, 36 verbal). I am quite happy with the result. However, my university grades are average and I am considering retaking the GMAT so I can outstand at least with this grade.

So during my first exam I studied alone with the manhattan and OC books, and I feel that preparing with a course I could boost my verbal grade (not a native speaker). Which course would you recommend in my case? (aiming at 760)

For now I am considering the economist one as they guarantee my a 750 but it is rather expensive.. any other good recommendations?

Thnks!

Hi cdc,

First off, a 720/Q50 is an outstanding score - and you can comfortably apply to any Business Schools that interest you. As such, a retest is likely NOT necessary. Since you're looking to strengthen your overall application, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and plans. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/

If you're looking for a way to "counter" a lower GPA, then you have to show that you NOW have the ability to do well in an academic setting. To that end, taking relevant college-level classes in the short term (such as Calculus and/or Statistics) - and earning a high grade - can show the Admissions Committees that you have to capacity to perform well in a collegiate setting.

I would stay out of economist. It contains horrible SC. You have other sources such as e-gmat, EmpowerGMAT, Crackverbal,...etc

Hi

You should maintain your Quant score and improve Verbal Score up to V42 to get a 750-760, for verbal, e-GMAT is well reputed course.

Good Luck

Hi,
Thanks a lot for your answer! You have calmed me a little bit. I will not have the possiblity to re-take my college classes but I can definitely ask an Admissions Expert for counseling. Any idea when should I start meeting with admissions experts if I want to apply next fall?

Again, thanks:)

Hi cdc,

Whether you're planning to apply to Business School in 2019 or 2020, now would actually be a pretty good time to reach out to an Admissions Expert. Since it's a relatively 'slow' time of year, most of those Experts should not be too busy (so you probably would not need to wait for a response).

When I suggested that you might want to take (or retake) a College-level class, I was not suggesting that you had to retake a class at the same School as before. Thus, you might potentially take a class online or at a different (re: local) School. As long as the subject matter is appropriate and the School/class is reputable, then earning a high grade in such a class would still be beneficial to your applications.
