I paid for both a Kaplan course (2015) and a Manhattan course (2016) to prepare for the GMAT. I ended up not utilizing the Kaplan course in 2015 and it took me a year to choose Manhattan. Part of the reason I never used Kaplan materials is because of the more rigid structure with a time limit of being able to access online resources. I needed flexibility and Manhattan provided just that! With thin, content-driven strategy guide books that I could shove in my computer bag Monday morning before flying to a client and read on the plane or at my hotel room, Manhattan provided a high-quality curriculum based on learning fundamentals. Manhattan also allows you to access online resources for much longer than Kaplan. I do think Manhattan's practice CAT exams are more difficult than the actual GMAT, they helped me prepare for the real test, which I only had to take one time to obtain an excellent score. Jayson and Gerald from Manhattan were also great - they helped me solidify and test what I was learning in the course material throughout the week and humanized the GMAT prep experience with fun stories and great tips. Thanks, Manhattan Prep!
