Hello everyone, nice to be in the GMAT community

So my situation is the following. I have tried the GMAT this week and my result has been worst than expected.

Until now I have based my preparation mostly on doing the exercises of the GMAT official guide and exams non stop. But I think my problem is that I lack the basics. So. I have been recommended the Manhattan whole set prep books. But I have also been told that verbal egmat is really good with SC (they told me it explains all the fundamentals from the beginning: sentence construction). So my question is, is it really egmat verbal more detailed than Manhattan verbal? Shall I buy just quant manhattan and verbal egmat? Both??

Any light on the matter is appreciated. I don't have much time so this time I want to focus on the best resources from the beginning.

Thank you!!

Hello nuriaa - Both the courses are great in their own respect.

e-GMAT is more about videos and a good explanation of the fundamentals, Manhattan is more about rules and detailed fundamentals on SC.

It's hard to compare both, but I would suggest take a trial EGMAT course and check if it suites to your style. If yes, please go ahead and buy it.

People will suggest based on what works for them, not necessary that it will work for you as well. So, test and only then choose the course.

Hope this help!

Hi nuriaa,

From your post, it's not clear whether you're referring to a practice CAT or the Official GMAT - although I assume it's the Official GMAT. 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 did you score on this recent Exam (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
4) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to (re)take the GMAT?
7) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
8) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Thank you for your responses. Finally I decided to go with Manhattan and if I need further explanations (which may be the case with verbal) i will buy egmat verbal.

Thank you.

Hi nuriaa,

I have used both Manhattan GMAT SC and the e-gmat SC and although MGMAT SC is great, I can confidently say that E-gmat is a lot more structured the MGMAT. 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 easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

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 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.

I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and the verbal review for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best.
