Thanks bb! The points you make make sense. I am an Indian male but with a non-IT background however :) I am leaning towards Knewton because like you say there is nothing to lose except some time.

Just FYI - I have not taken any classes, so don't base your judgment on my comments :)
Knewton seems like a safer option due to the 50 point guarantee, but it is an online class and may or may not work. Just a disclaimer - I am not trying to sell you on it.

Thanks for the comprehensive listing of all providers. Several things I'm still on the fence about:

- Self Study: While this post shows all of the providers' info, there is another post ("best-gmat-books-reviews-recommendations-for-your-prep-77703") that implies the books themselves are sufficient. Are there any discussions comparing one approach vs the other?

- Class vs Otherwise: Posts describing the quality of class sessions are helpful, but many people (myself included) have to travel extensively for work and can't just go to a pre-determined class. Are there any reviews of online or CD options for classes?

Thanks.

Take a gmat prep diagnostic test and figure out where you stand.
Taking a class is usually the better option for those who value their time highly but it is a more expensive option too.

I would like to put my two cents in this very informative thread.....
I used this website to find out the best study sources and shortlisted to MGMAT and GMAXonline. i bought MGMAT sentence correction guide to start but was too lazy to start reading. Then i decided to purchase GMAXonline and it really made GMAT interesting coz i could watch the online lectures while sitting in a bathtub or even while cooking. The key to a good score in GMAT is to study everyday, but after a hard day of work sometimes its really hard to get back to books. the lecture definitely made studying more lively and gave me the extra push that i needed to cross the 700 mark. I ended up with a 730 score and a lot of credit for that goes to GMAXonline.
Since i was on a tight budget when i started my prep, i didn't feel like spending $400 for the course, so i ended up dividing the number of views between me and my friend. Since GMAX gives u 90 views for 30 lectures, we both managed to watch every lecture and a repeat of the topics we found a little tough.
Overall, a 5 star rating from me to GMAXonline....

Thanks for the info on the prep courses. I found this GMAT EBook, some good strategies and information worth a look. Looks interesting, thoughts?

Hi Im trying to decided between a manhattan gmat 9 class course, or a princeton review or kaplan course...any recommendations on who's better? Im taking it in nyc and I heard the mgmat instructors are a little cocky, and being that nyc is full of investment bankers, I dont want to end up in a class where im at a disadvantage with my marketing background...any thoughts? thanks for the help!

I have never taken the gmat but im originally from south america, went to college in the us, but need a lot of help in the verbal part, especially vocab since english is not my first language, but i was able to go to notre dame for college though.

When did most GMAT testers take classes? I'm planning on using book materials and practice tests before taking the GMAT a first time.

After that, I'm planning to take a class and then re-take the GMAT for a second time.

Anyone with more knowledge than me care to comment on this strategy?

FWIW, a number of years back I took the test having used ONLY the Princeton Review GMAT book. My scores went from 617 to 680.

I am writing this as a warning to people searching for test prep materials. My experience with MLIC Turboprep is one that should not be repeated.

After paying $1400 and receiving confirmation that I had a place in the upcoming weekend class, I received a series of unorganized and incomprehensible pdf files with impertinent information and exercises. Then, I received an e-mail saying that I was going to be moved out of the class I signed up for and placed into another one. After explaining to them that this was not possible (I was going to be out of town), they said it was out of their hands and there was nothing they or I could do.

Reasonably, I was not happy. They said they would not offer a refund, and therefore I went to my credit card company to appeal the charges. After a long back-and-forth, I did not receive the services promised and was forced to pay for them anyway. As a customer, I have never been treated so disrespectfully, and I got the impression that it was not the first time MLIC has dealt with unhappy customers and disputed charges.

I warn you not to partake in this scam. I used other materials to prepare for the GRE, including Kaplan and PowerScore (which I was very pleased with) and I scored a 1450. Kaplan is challenging and good for those who plan on getting a high score, and PowerScore offers a great and affordable weekend course along with some good test strategies.

I have been told that the LSAT prep courses over prepare you for the GMAT and I should invest in these instead of the GMAT prep courses. Any truth to this?

I am planing to take Manhattan GMAT preparation class ?

Is that a right decision?

I got 490 in my first GMAT test, I am planing to get 620, is that possible using MGMAT?

Also, I am Mechanucal Engineer, I want to know the advantages of taking MBA on my career path?

Thanks

How does Knewton's 50 Point guarantee works?
Meaning If I have already written GMAT and got say 650. So after Completing the Knewton course I can expect a 700 and if did not get it I will get a refund?
Also what if I am writing the GMAT for very first time

I'm enrolled right now in the manhattangmat course and i LOVE it so far. I will give a better review once i finish the course and take gmat. But right now i blame myself for not taking it the first time when i was studying for gmat. :-D

It was not bad as i thought it would be. Math was easier than what i studied. However, i still guessed about 8 questions. With verbal i struggled. I guessed about 15 questions :shock: maybe even more. For some reason critically didn't have enough time. My score was 630 Q49 (or 48) and V29 :-D . I totally deserved it since my studing strategy the first time was very BAD. I took a lot of tests but did very little actual studying ( i mean concepts etc.) Also i studied math (because i felt more secure with it and did very little of verbal) My fault :-D I am non-native speaker so my weakness it Verbal. This time im all about concepts. So far (since sept) took only one CAT and only because manhattangmat asked me to take it:)

Let me know if you have other questions, will be glad to share...

I took a Princeton Review course a month or so ago and ended up turning a 580 Math score into a 670, which was my real weakness to begin with. I took a few practice tests on their website and they were adaptive just like the real thing, which was nice. But having the structure of a full-fledged class with an instructor was what helped most, IMO. Though now I wish I'd waited to take it. My friend just signed up for a GMAT class and she's now getting an iPad paid for because of some deal they're doing through their website. Bad timing for me I guess, haha.
