You have the choice of going for classroom coaching for GMAT in Kolkata
Schedule a Demo class with the faculty and go with one which is best suited
for your style of studying. What works for me may not work for you.
From what I know, Manya(Princeton) and Jamboree offer GMAT coaching in Kolkata

You have a choice of taking up the services of an online prep company.
If you do end up taking an online prep company's course, this post should help you.

For reviews for some of the courses visit the following link

Whatever decision you take do it only once you are entirely convinced.

All the best.

AdityaPrakash08 – the first step is to decide on a target GMAT score. You target score depends on the schools that you are planning to apply to. To improve your chances of admission, you should aim to score at least the median score of your target school. For example, the median score for the class of 2015 for Wharton is 730.

Once you have a target GMAT score, get your target Quant and target Verbal scores. Use a tool such as GMAT Planner for the same.

Lastly, understand how the exam works. Attend the GMAT Strategy Webinar this weekend for the same.

You should dedicate around 4 months to prepare for your GMAT. I would encourage you take one of the two GMAT PREP practice test. You can know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. I would recommend you to opt for an online prep rather than a coaching class as a well designed online prep company can be much more beneficial. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market.

You can also try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. Just by going through these guides and solving the OG will help you reach 600+. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them. Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Hope this helps. All the best.

I would suggest you to initially go for a mini-diagnostic test and understand the concept and content of GMAT. This will make you understand GMAT and would give you an idea of how much time you need to invest on preparing based on that start your preparation wisely. Look for some online materials available free in the market and utilize the best of it and would also suggest you to keep giving free mock test based on what you have studied, that will make you understand your weakness and start working on it.

Which GMAT coaching center you should approach?
I would recommend you General Education as they provide you an option of customized and personalized coaching.

Hi
You can opt for coaching like Jamboree. First of all take a trial class, then decide on the coaching. Else, you can opt for online coaching such as Egmat, Empowergmat, Economist gmat. Either way, take a trial class and then decide finally.
Or you can also go for self study with the help of MGMAT guides.
