Hey guys,

I am going to take a test at the end of February. I already studied with the official GMAT guides for about two weeks and got a 610 (Q42;V32) on my Practice Test. I want to buy some online resources for the next two months. I am not sure which ones to buy. Here are some thoughts:

Magoosh Premium for 119,2 $

Or

Math Revolution All-In-One 51 Course (1 month) 98$
+
A course focused on verbal (please suggest some)
Or self study verbal

I would highly appreciate your opinions and any suggestions regarding other material.

(BTW Im aiming at 660+; Desiring 700+)

Hi jon5511,

Assuming that you took this CAT in a realistic fashion, this 610 is a strong initial CAT Score (the average score on the Official GMAT hovers around 540-550 most years). 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 your timeline and goals:

1) Did you take the FULL CAT (with the Essay and IR sections)?
2) What Score would you be happy with (for example, if you scored 670 on the Official GMAT, would you keep studying?)?
3) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
6) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

2) I need a 660+ and I am aiming to score 680-700
3) Mid-End February
4) The first school in March but most of them April to May
5) Copenhagen Business, HSG, Mannheim, Cologne (For M.SC- Programms)
6) I can study about 2-3 hours a day for the next 2 month

Hi Jonas

In order to decide what is the best GMAT resource to buy, I suggest to try them out first.
Many of the courses have some sort of a free trial.
examPAL for instance is offering all the video lessons for free (no limit), and also provides 30 credits to try our artificial intelligence based practice system.

Going through all the courses, or a selected few, even if just for a few minutes (though I recommend more than that), will give you an idea of the learning experience you should expect.

Hi Jonas,

Test Day is a rather specific 'event' - the details are specific and they matter, so you have to train as best as you can for all of them. The more realistic you can make your CATs, the more likely the score results are to be accurate. As such, when you take CATs in the future, you should make them 'match up' as much as you reasonably can with what you'll face on Test Day (meaning that you should take the FULL CAT, away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.).

Since you have at least a couple of months of study time available, you could potentially raise a 610 to a 660+ studying however you like (for example, with just some general self-study). You've listed a Score Goal "range"; if you're interested in applying for Scholarships, then there will likely be a GMAT 'score requirement' as part of the application. This is meant to say that if you want to be as efficient as possible with this process (and potentially score a lot higher than 660), then you would likely benefit from investing in a GMAT Course of some type (either Guided Self-Study or instructor-led). Most GMAT Companies offer some type of free materials (practice problems, Trial Accounts, videos, etc.) that you can use to 'test out' a product before you buy it. We have a variety of those resources at our site (www.empowergmat.com). I suggest that you take advantage of all of them then choose the one that best matches your personality, timeline and budget.

If you have any additional question, then you can feel free to contact me directly.

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