Manhattan Review Prep Course....Please advice

Post Thu Oct 19, 2006 10:41 am
I'm in the process of deciding whether to take the Manhattan Review GMAT prep course in London.

I've been through the Kaplan and Princeton Review books. At the moment, I have been through the verbal and quantitative sections, which tell you how to approach and answer the problems. I've not done many practice questions yet.

Do you think I will learn much additionally from the course which I haven't learnt from the books.

Also would an 2-day weekend course be better or an 7-day course.

I'm planning to take the course in early November and my exam is in early December.

I've also looked at the Kaplan and Veritas course, but there dates do not fit into my schedule.

Thanks so much for your help.

If you are set on taking a course, I hear that Manhattan GMAT is very good.

I think that it is completely possible, however, for you to perform well on the GMAT by studying on your own. If you can keep yourself disciplined to do a lot of practice problems and practice tests, you can sufficiently prepare yourself for the exam.

I would recommend reading through the posts on this forum and examining my blog (http://beatthegmat.blogspot.com) to see an example(s) of successful personal study strategies. Also, check out this post: http://www.beatthegmat.com/viewtopic.php?t=13

Best of luck!

Do more practice questions and take one or two of the PR tests first...they're pretty close to the real thing and will give you a good idea if you need a course. You need to do more prep before you'll really know.
