GMAT Prep Course - Which one with anticipated work schedule [#permalink]

I'm looking to prepare for and take the GMAT this summer, but I have a somewhat broken up schedule due to work and previous plans. I'm looking into the MGMAT classes as they are local for me (NYC); the full course is a 9-week commitment.

There are basically two windows I am looking into; starting in mid-May and finishing in late July or starting in early-July and finishing in early-September. I'm pretty much stuck with a mid-week class due to weekend schedules.

My commitments are as follows:

Memorial Day Weekend (May 24-27): Out of town wedding; Likely limited study time, possibly totally a wash

June 22-30: Vacation with wife; limited to no study time and will miss at least one class

July 9-10, 15-16, and 23-24: Out of town work projects; Limited study time

Anyway, so the big issue is the vacation and the tight timing. If I start immediately then I will have limited time (~1.5 weeks) to go through the math foundations prep and Khan Academy lessons, which I really need based on my 560 initial CAT (500Q, 620V split; basically guessed 1/2 the quant questions and another 1/3 of the verbal). If I wait to start until later then I have more time to prep myself for the class, but I will be bumping up pretty close to the CBS early decision deadline (10/3), which is one route I am considering.

One thing to note, I have the full set of MGMAT guided self study books already from 2012; sort of failed to launch on my prep a year and half ago due to work obligations and now I don't have online access or current written content. I'm concerned that I've fallen off the wagon in my ability to self-prep given the issues I had last year and I am targeting a high score (720+); I feel like this is my one shot to get that. Although, I have had success with self-prep programs in the past and I'm a strong standardized test taker (96th percentile SAT w/no test prep, 97th percentile LSAT with self-prep). If I can self-prep then a lot of these issues go away.

jloopy,

With your background in doing well on previous standardized tests - you should be able to reach your target potential. The tough part is familiarizing yourself with the various question types and identifying what is important and what is not important for your test.

We happen to cater our course specifically towards busy, working professionals who have limited time to study on weekdays. Our 1 month study plan includes daily email reminders telling students exactly what needs to be done on each day. Generally, you need to budget 2-3 hours per weekday and full 10 hour days on weekends.

Our course is also fully accessible via our iPhone, Android, and iPad apps - so you can download videos on WiFi and bring them with you anywhere. Study on your commute to work or during your lunch break without using the company intranet for your personal studies.

For someone like you who has done well in previous tests and also probably can't commit to in-classroom classes - an online course may be effective in accomplishing what you need. Either way, it's worth exploring your options before you dive in.
