Good Luck.
Did you sign up with Knewton via GMAT Club link? www.knewton.com/gmat/pricing/gmatclub/ ?

if so, you will also get access to the GMAT Club Tests.

Best of luck my friend. Go through each and every lessons of knewton, they are awesome. Also read their concept library. Their concept library is a little hard to navigate but still I will say go through all of the library. In fact I copied each and every page of their library into open office document and then into a pdf book of 90 page just for sentence correction alone. I am finding this book on par with mgmt sc guide and it is helping me increase my accuracy on sc. Hope you will take benefit of all these and ace the gmat. Best of luck again!

I used Princeton Review's classroom course, wanted to take MGMAT but couldn't make it fit into my work schedule.

I found PR to be pretty average. My class only had 5 people in it, so I was expecting a lot of catered instruction, and I made it clear to the instructor that I wanted to score 700+. What really turned me off was my instructor hadn't taken an actual GMAT in years, and couldn't even remember what her score was! IMO, if you are teaching a GMAT Prep class, you should be required by your parent organization to sit and take the REAL GMAT on a recurring basis (I really don't care how often, perhaps once a year?), in order to stay on the up and up with the latest trends on the test! I guarantee things are somewhat different now than they were when she took the test. This is why I wanted MGMAT, where all instructors score 760+ and take the exam frequently.

PR was designed for someone looking to score 550-650, definitely not 700+. While they have resources and advanced drills to help people with those goals, it's just not the same as having a living instructor who engages with you regularly to help you through the process of reaching a 90th percentile score. After all, that's why you're paying $1000+ for the class instead of $25 for an advanced quant book or SC guide.

I ended up scoring a 750 on the real GMAT, but I attribute this primarily to the exhaustive prep I did on my own, (200-300 hours over 4 months) using all the MGMAT books and OGs plus supplementary OGs, plus some GMAT Club tests.

On the whole, I wouldn't recommend PR if you can go for MGMAT's class (even the online one, which I have seen and the format is essentially just as good as being there in real life). PR was ok for some basics and study techniques, but I think you can get more from your money elsewhere.

I have a question about the Manhattan 9 Session Prep Course.

I already bought the 8 Strategy guides as well as the Offical Guide (12th ed) - is there any way to get a discount on the course if do not want to get the books again? (i.e. deduct the price for the books from the total course fee...)

Thanks for your help!

I believe You can actually get a discount (don't quote me on it) - just check with the MGMAT representative and they will give you a credit (won't ship the books either)

I spoke with a Manhattan representative and she told me that you only get a discount for the Official Guide books. You WOULD not get a discount if you already own the Manhattan series. It doesn't make sense that they wouldn't give you a discount because you will have two sets of the Manhattan series. I guess you would have to sell one set. Right now, I am researching the different courses to determine if I need to take one.

An update to my last post. I received this email from a different representative.

we can deduct the cost only if you bought the books directly from our website. The only exceptions are the official guide for GMAT review set, which can be found here:

http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... 44&catid=7

If you have these three books we can provide you a $40 book credit off the cost of the online class.

Hey Guyz,

Have been through all the posts on this forum and was thinking which course to select

I have already given GMAT twice - 580 (Q47 ,V24 ) in Aug'10 and 660 (Q49 ,V32 ) in May'11

I am inclined towards Knewton after reading the reviews on GMAT Club. Majority of the users have liked it and benefited from it.

I was curious to know about GMAT Pill too -Their success stories are inspiring but couple of them are somehow too good to be true (in my opinion, no pun intended here)

I would appreciate if the experts can help me decide on this.

I intend to give GMAT by mid April (so I have 2+ months for prep)

Cheers

Hey guys ,

What's the best online course available for RC ? Many people say gmatpill is good , but it's too expensive for me . Are there any other good courses for RC ?

Helloo dear gmatclubbers
I'm trying to figure out where/what and when I should take a course or purchase a course.
I finally made my decision to take the exam and get my MBA few nights ago. Since then I've read many and many articles about this.
A bit info about me so
Graduated HS = 04
BS. Computer Eng = 08
MS. Electrical Eng = 2011

I'm aiming for a perfect score on GMAT. I think I've narrowed down my choices to Kaplan and Manhattan. What are your thoughts ?
Should I study a bit on my own prior to attending/ taking etiher course ?

Thanks,
Nikoo
