Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a nice day!
I have a couple of questions, I bought Kaplan prep plus 2020, and I’ve heard recently that there are better prep books out there. My questions are
1. Is Kaplan that bad? Should I buy another one?
2. Should I keep on going on Kaplan prep plus and then maybe consider buying the OG math and verbal and the big one also and do those 4 books? And then practicing online and other materials and if I do so, what order would you recommend, Kaplan and OG, or viceversa? Or if you recommend any other complete plan
I have 7-8 months to study and I’m committed to study 2+ hours per day and in the weekends maybe 3-4.
I want to get to good schools in Europe: esade, HEC, ESSEC, Bocconi...
thank you very much and have a good study and good day :)

you might love the link and the preparation books described in the link shared below:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-study-p ... s#p2531044

and to answer your question, Kaplan is one of the leading preparation guides so its definitely not bad, but sticking onto the official guide will help you in many ways since OG contains official questions made by GMAC. Also if you're learning from the very basics you can definitely look forward for Mgmat Guides. OG and Mgmat are the definite GMAT guides. you can use your Kaplan guide afterwards for practice. Good Luck

Hi

In this forum, you will have lots of useful things, and you should explore them. I bought two gmat online courses, and the manhattan prep live online course is one of them. MGMAT guides are better than any books for concepts, so before making a purchase, consult with people. An online platform can help one to go ahead faster.

Thanks a lot

Hi Estrella0798,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. 4 months is good enough to achieve your target score. You should start by taking a GMAT Mock. You can then know your weaknesses and can work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. I think you need to solidify you base and adopt a proper technique to answer the questions. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and TTP as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

If you are looking for a good course in verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase official GMAT question from mba.com for some great additional practice.

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.
