Hi guys,

I need some advice on which resource I should buy. To give a little background, I’ll be taking the GMAT in the first week of October. My current score is somewhere between 660-700. My weak points are DS (I’m absolutely crap at solving those) and my stress throughout the exam. I need practice but I also need to get myself used to taking mocks. I’m debating between Experts global (15 mocks for $50) and Manhattan Prep (6 mocks, 9 question banks with over 200 questions, and around 500 quant questions with 700+ difficulty for $75). While there aren’t plenty of reviews about EG, the ones that are there are positive. And Manhattan is a known brand, although I’ve heard the quant is relatively difficult (which might be a blow to my already low confidence. Not that I want a false confidence boost but I hope you get it). So, which one should I go for?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Sanjana0202,

Welcome to GMATCLUB! Although I think both the resources are great, in your final few weeks, I think you should go with Manhattan. Yes the Quant questions are a notch harder than the official GMAT but they are still great for practice. Further their verbal question especially their SC is absolutely incredible and will indeed help you improve. In general the quality of questions in MGMAT is one of the best among all the unofficial resources.

Hope this helps. All the best!

If you are looking only for DS questions, it will better go with Expert Global. If you are looking for overall Manhattan would be better. Your real GMAT score may be higher than Manhattan prep scores in maximum cases.

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 GMAT success stories to see what materials have worked well for other test-takers.

Hi Sanjana0202,

Regardless of how you choose to continue your studies, it's important to note that a CAT is really a 'measuring device' - when used correctly, it will give you a realistic score and help define your strengths and weaknesses, but it will NOT help you to fix any of those weaknesses. To raise your scores, you have to learn the necessary Tactics and put in the proper practice and repetitions. The CAT will show you whether your studies are helping you to improve or not. As such, you really shouldn't take more than 1 FULL CAT per week - and your last CAT should be taken about 1 week before your Official GMAT.

Before I can offer you any additional advice for your studies, 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? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how have you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

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

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