Hi everybody,

I passed 3 times the gmat which i prepare by myself to finish with a score of 540...
I am a french engineer with a Master's degree and I live in a Reunion Island. It is not easy for me to prepare the GMAT : no prep courses, bad broadband and nothing to improve my english...
I really want to improve my score ! but i don't know how ? What is the best thing to do ? Go in a preparation course online or in a real class ? ( the nearest one is in Singapore...) Buy all the Manhattan books...

Well, any advice will be a good things...

Thanks

Fred

Thanks - it looks like there is some potential improvement with Q and V but mostly V is what needs work.

1. Get english at the point where it is not a limitation. Unfrotunately GMAT is in English and you have no way but to get over it. I would not attempt much verbal practice in the MGMAT guides or a prep class until you are comfortable with most of English grammar and have a decent vocabulary.
2. MGMAT Guides are indeed very good if you can get them - would highly recommend (many others do as well). If you are looking for a prep class, see here for reviews and good deals: gmat-prep-course-class-reviews-ratings-discount-codes-78451.html?highlight=ml601
3. I would recommend GMAT Fiction (reading a lot for a few months that you are prepping for the GMAT) or even longer if you can/willing to do it.

Also, take a peek here: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html?highlight=ml301 and here everything-you-need-to-prepare-for-the-gmat-revised-77983.html?highlight=ml303

As usual error log is recommended.

P.S. What score are you shooting for and what have you used to prepare in the past?
