Hello all,

I've taken the GMAT twice a few years back and scored 550-590 respectively. I'm seeking to have a go at it again and improve upon my scores to reach 670+.

In the past, I've taken the Princeton review and veritas before taking the tests. I believe the best approach that I'd improve my scores is that if I enrolled in a class room/tutoring type of GMAT preparations.

What would you guys recommend as the best options available? (cost is not a concern).

Thanks in advance,
Director

Hi
In my opinion, you can opt for Egmat, Empowergmat, Economist gmat as these have good reviews on the Gmatclub. You must take free trial before you decide any of the courses. Alternatively you can opt for classroom courses based on the availability at your location.

Hi Sontawila,

Since it's been a couple of years since you were in 'study mode', have you done any studying recently (or are you starting 'from scratch' at this point?)? Since it sounds like you're just restarting your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

Early last week, GMAC made a formal announcement defining some changes that will be taking place to the format of the Official GMAT (beginning April 16, 2018). These changes primarily impact the overall length of the Exam (meaning the number of questions in the Quant and Verbal sections as well as the amount of time that you’ll have to complete each of those two sections). In theory, a shorter Exam could make it easier for a well-prepared Test Taker to score higher. Unfortunately, practice CATs in the new 'format' don't exist yet - but once they become available, you should plan to take one (so that we can get a better sense of how you perform under these new conditions).

1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Thank you souvonik2k and Rich for the feedback.

I will definitely be looking at Egmat, Empowergmat and Economist. Also, I hear the Manhattan programs are good.

As for my plan:

1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
I don't have a specific time in mind, it all depends on how ready I think I'm.
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
It'll probably by after next 5 months
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
I'm targeting the top schools but I have yet to narrow it down based on class composition. Mainly looking for schools that have more work experience applicants.

Thanks again,
Math Expert

Hi...

Moving from 590 to 670+ should not be a problem, if you are giving yourself some time.
a 590 means you are generally clear with basics and a 670+ would require choosing the best methods/tips/tricks. I am sure you will be able to reach the target.
So first realize your weaknesses( you can get a general idea through your previous attempts) and then work on them .

Hi Sontawila,

You've given yourself plenty of time to study - which is good. Since the first of the 'new format' CATs should be available some time in the next few weeks, I suggest that you study as you see fit until those CATs become available - then plan to take one in FULL and in a realistic fashion (take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.). Once you have that score, you should report back here and we can discuss how best to proceed.
