Best Test Prep Program for Each Section  [#permalink]

I was wondering which Test Prep programs/companies are the best for the verbal section and the quant section. I have heard that e-GMAT is the best for non-native English speakers and Target Test Prep is great for quant, but what are the top 3 for verbal and the top 3 for quant if you want to score 45+ for verbal and 51 for quant?

I understand that these scores are extremely high, but I have only seen information on score improvements up to the 40-48 point range and was wondering which programs are best suited for 760+ scores. Also this question is assuming that the hard work and planning are all well laid out.

Thanks!

Hi TheAspirantMBA,

To start, the 760+ score is the 99th percentile - meaning that 99% of Test Takers never score that high (regardless of how long they study or the number of times that they take the GMAT). By extension, no combination of study materials and resources can guarantee that type of outcome. Thankfully, NO Business School requires a score that high - so it's important to realize that the score that you might "want" and the score that you "need" to get into your first-choice School are not the same thing.

Based on your initial post, it's not clear whether you're just beginning your studies or you've put in some significant study time already, so before I can offer you any advice for your studies, 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? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School and what Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi TheAspirantMBA,

If you are looking to improve your quant score TTP would be a great resource for you. We are the top-rated quant course here on GMAT Club. Also, we’ve helped plenty of test-takers score Q50+ on the GMAT. In fact, here is a recent TTP debrief that you may find helpful:

If you have any further questions regarding TTP, feel free to reach out to me directly.

Good luck!

HI

I hope you already knew that 760+ is 99th percentile, it means your score is better than 99 percent of test-takers. It is not impossible to score that much but it is highly difficult.


I have not scored 760 but based on my experience, GMAT feels more like a mind game than a regular test if you are aiming for a high score. By mind game I meant GMAT throw at you different sorts of question some are way beyond the expected difficulty( experimental) and some RC are attractive enough that you would spend some time than you needed to. So you should have better intuition about which question to leave and how much time you should spend on a particular question

Though they seem minor things, they cost a 20-30 point difference if we not taken seriously.

How is it relevant to choosing the right prep resource either for QUANT or for VERBAL?

Right prep services would be that which gives you a better sense of expected difficulty and many prep services fail in that respect except few, one of them is Experts' global
Opinion: I've found that the Experts' Global GMAT prep course is really good in both Verbal and quant perspective

My Suggestion:

Verbal SC: Offline resource :Manhatten guides for SC , Online resource: Experts' global verbal course ,and supplementry :Mike McGarry's( from Magoosh) blogs.
Verbal CR: Power CR and LSAT for extra practice.
Verbal RC: Egmat videos and Experts' Global RC strategies.

Quant: GMAT club solutions and OG practice. and supplementary : Experts' global quant.

Mock tests: Experts' Global Mock test series

I Hope, I have been helpful to you. :)
