Hi all. Ive recently been pondering whether to enroll in a Veritas GMAT prep class or not.

Ive heard from a couple of people that I know who are in b schools that they found it useful, but I am not sure whether its worth the \$.

Ive been on GMATclub for a while now, and while I havent written my test yet (or booked it for that matter), I feel like Im learning a lot just by being on here.

Do you guys have any opinions on whether prep courses are useful ?

If you can organize yourself to study hard every single day, sticked to your plan, analyzing your weak areas and paying attention to what's wrong in strong areas, you could easily prepare by yourself. I never took a GMAT prep course due to the financial reasons and due to the availability of bulk of study materials. After analysis of lots of posts, blogs, debriefs, I was able to grow up the system for preparation and studied according to it.

I think it depends mostly on your learning style. A course can give you the discipline you need, along with help when you need it. If you're able to set a study schedule and stick to it, then that won't be as important. I am doing something in between...self prep with books and an online course (Princeton Review). I like the course because it's interactive and it's keeping track of my progress, which is keeping me motivated. I didn't sign up for the one with live lectures, but the live instructor chat is very useful. I wasn't sure I would like doing an online course because I'm easily distracted, but so far, that hasn't been a problem.

So that could be one option. They're definitely cheaper than classroom courses (and no driving around!), and you can do it at your own pace.

It really just depends on what works best for you, so I'd say get started more actively with your prep on your own and see where that takes you. You'll figure it out!
