Is it necessary to join coaching classes to score 740+, or self studies will do?

Hi swasq12,

A 740+ score on the GMAT is essentially the 99th percentile - meaning that 99% of Test Takers will never score that high regardless of how much they study or the number of times that they take the GMAT. There are lots of different ways to study for this Test, but with that type of score goal, you have to consider what would be the most logical 'path' to get there. If all it took was a few books, then wouldn't a lot more people score that high?

Nobody here knows you well enough to define exactly what YOU would need to hit that score level, but it's likely that you would benefit a great deal from investing in a GMAT Course of some type. By having the proper structure, practice materials, lessons, etc. you wouldn't have to try to figure out how to study or what to focus on.

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?

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

Hi swasq12,

For GMAT preparation, you need to build the concepts/fundamentals before you jump in solving the problems. You can do so by choosing one of the following ways:
1. In person classes/private tutoring
2. Online classes
3. Self paced online preparatory course
4. Book heavy approach

Whatever you choose, make sure that you choose one. Because GMAT tests you on some concepts and fundamentals that you can learn from a course. Most of the preparatory companies including ours offer a free trial of our course. You can take the trial and see if the course suits your needs.

In addition to the preparatory material, buy the Official Guides(both the Official Guide and the Verbal Review), Question Pack 1 and the 4 official mock CATs. They should be an indispensable part of your preparation.
