I'm curious about what people think is lacking from all GMAT prep courses or books. What do you think is a weakness of GMAT study plans? Critical reasoning, reading comprehension?

Personally, I think that the quantitative section is easier to improve, and most prep courses do a decent job of covering the content and strategies you need. But I see a lot more complaints on the verbal side. What have you done to improve RC or CR? Which courses and approaches do you think have helped the most? Or do you think that no prep courses currently do a great job in preparing for certain sections?

Player, Those scores are Dope! Your schools are Da Bomb! You Rock!...Anyway, AWA is not really covered. Manhattan Review sells a book that seems to be the best on AWA. RC and CR are so subjective, that I am not comfortable with any of the prep materials.

I think those are too generic/general categories. There are so many materials and so many companies offering prep that I feel no BIG space/area are left out. I think people learn better with different tools (some prefer books while others do better with video courses while a third category may prefer a tutor.

I think there are no great courses per se for re-takers and I think the 700+ market is a bit underserved but that's all I can think of at the moment.
