Help

Post Sat Oct 21, 2006 11:04 pm
Hello friends,

I have been preparing for GMAT since last couple of months. I have taken the OG 11, OG verbal and Quant books and Kaplan Premier Program books. But I am having real problems sticking to my preperation.

I have hardly finished OG11 original book. I have completed the Diagonistic test section, Problem Solving section, Data sufficiency section, Critical reasoning and Sentense correction sections... but I have not been able to complete the Reading comprehension section.



I am finding it real difficult to stick to my GMAT preperation by balancing between work and GMAT preperations. I am presently in Seoul South Korea.

Can anybody suggest me some cources/classes that are conducted Seoul in English? Atleast that will help me stick to my GMAT preperations...


I will be very greatful to people who help me....

Please please please help....

thanks,
Nikhil

Thanks for that background information. I see two options for you:

1) If you choose to study on your own, create a strategy of removing yourself from your environment. Is there a library nearby where you can study? Is it possible to find one or two hours each night to study there? Your current 'bachelor' environment definitely does not sound conducive to serious preparation.

2) Go for a prep course. This might be a good alternative for you because (A) it's structured for you, and (B) it will remove you from your distracting home environment. Unfortunately, I can't recommend any specific programs in Seoul because I do not know what exists out there. If you want a 700+ score, I DO NOT recommend Kaplan or Princeton Review--these classes are taylored to people who want to score between 600-700. Try to select something more elite like Manhattan GMAT (I don't know if they are out in Seoul)--it will take some investigating on your part.

Best of luck, and please let us know what you decide!
Yep... I thought so !! That's great to know.. I am relieved to know that, I was not wrong about my surroundings... I will make someway to overcome that problem... yes I do visit a library.. but on weekends... got to checkout for night availability...

Thanks again Eric for the help.. Will let you know what I decide...

regards,
Nikhil
