570 to 700 in 30 days with Manhattan GMAT Post Fri Mar 28, 2008 11:17 am
I just got my results. 700 with a 44 V 42 Q. I took the test last month and I scored 570 with a 36 V 32 Q. I bought the guided self study plus and watched all the lessons and classes, did 6 practice tests, and all the math books. For the first exam I studied the OG, Princeton Review, and Kaplan books available at Barnes and Noble. There is no comparison. I'm thirty, and haven't taken a fundamental math class since 1995. It took some work to knock the rust off. If you have the $ the program is the best I've seen. I heard about it on this site. Thanks

I agree! I've just discovered Manhattan and am loving it, best answer explanations I've seen yet. Just wish I'd discovered it a little earlier, as I write in 4 days!

Congrats ljposson
Team,
I took the test in Feb this year scored 570 Q44, V 25 ( missed 3 questions on math, only because I had hit confirm while I was thinking about the answer). Anyways, i am 33 yrs old. want to get an MBA in opertaions for my career advancement.
Dont know what to do next ?
I want to improve my verbals alone. what is the best way ?
I dont live in the US, so Manhattan is not for me..its a little too expensive as well. I came to know of an institute in India, but he is charging something like manhattan. I am not able to afford it. Is there any place else I can buy used material only fo verbal. I want to improve my verbals score. I am NOT a avid reader. HOw to handle this and master my reading ability. My reading speed is slow/average.
Pls advice
Yoko
