Which self study courses best for studying?

Post Mon Dec 04, 2017 1:58 pm
Hi there,

I have been doing some research and I am trying to decide which GMAT self-study course to enroll in. With my work schedule I think self-paced study would be best for me. I have narrowed my choices down to the 3 above. I've been out of school for about 3 years so my quant skills are where I am most weak at. I am aiming for a score of 700+. I've got about 2-3 months to prepare. Cost isn't a factor in my decision. Thanks in advanced!

My son is prepping for 2019. His college mentor advised him to use Manhattan. I've been studying that website and it seems pretty good. The study materials seem pretty good. However, the self-study Manhattan site directs you to 1) study the books, 2) solve 2017 GMAT Review problems, and 3) keep track of your progress with the Navigator program. Seems a bit "thin." I thought the self-study course would be more engaging with much more videos. The Navigator only has 300+ videos. Other reviews state that the Manhattan course does not offer any GMAT short-cuts, tips nor tricks. The 5 free "classes" are too cute and touchy-feely. The free 3-hour intro class was fairly good, but the 9-class package seems overpriced. 4 stars from me.
