I was using an online self study program and when I took my first cat I got a 560. The next one was a month later and I got a 510 then in another week a 490 and on my actual GMAT I got a 440. I won’t say the name of the program but it really frustrates me cause when I took a quiz and didn’t do well it gave me an explanation which was awesome but when I wanted to redo the quiz to try and better understand the concepts they were the same questions. Anyways I now am looking for a new online program. Any suggestions.

Try 2 courses. It might be a little pricey but the extra focused attention will help you achieve a good score.

Verbal - Egmat or Magoosh
Quants - TTP and GMATclub tests.

Best wishes!:)

Hi TjJoseph,

From what you describe in your post, you're actually discussing two different issues: why did you Scores decrease over time and where can you find additional study materials (to practice specific concepts)? Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) What were your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores on the Official GMAT?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi TjJoseph,

Regarding prep courses, in addition to seeking advice in this thread, take a look at the GMAT Club reviews for the best quant and verbal courses, and also read through some [url=https://gmatclub.com/forum/share-your-gmat-experience-8/?fl=menu] GMAT success stories to see what materials have worked well for other test-takers.

You also may find it helpful to read this article about

Good luck!

Which tests did you take (official practice tests are the most reliable)?

You should analyze your prep before taking a decision on your next prep resource. For example, what (all) do you think contributed to the score drops you mentioned?

Hi,

I used The Economist GMAT prep and was very happy with the result. However, it is not for everyone as you may feel that there is too much "clicking" through the lessons. I'd recommend you try their free trial and see how it goes.
