If you are considering Princeton Review, the only good they did me was in understanding the concepts of "how" to take the test.
I took the ExpressOnline course 2x
was averaging a 26V and when I took the ACTUAL GMAT test...dropped to a 19V
I can honestly say...not real impressed with Princeton Review.
I have had friends say that Princeton Review and Kaplan are not what to expect on the actual GMAT. They are right.
I am now signing up for Veritasprep at $1200, because I am RETAKING the GMAT...do not find my score competitive enough for me.
My advice...if you are having problems in a section (or sections)...look into some review course...self-study did not work for me.

The explanations are very good in OG.

Could you tell me which 'Official Guide'? (or if there is a more recent version?
I have a 10th Edition of the Official Guide from GMAC/ETS and I am not sure how helpfuls some of it is. Since Pearson Vue took over the GMAT in January 2006, (ALL) of my friends have said the math has changed and is actually harder than before.
I need to brush up on my Quant skills before beginning my prep course.
thanks.

Buy the 11th edition. It has also some questions from 10th edtion, but the layout of the questions is different: from easy to tough.
