Bell Curves

Is Bell Curves any good? Do their questions really develop the necessary skills? Any opinion would be greatly appreciated.

I completely agree with Bates. If you dont have much experience with the format, look up AWA strategies and do some sample. Then post them on the AWA part of the board for feedback.

BEST books for Quant and Sentence correction?

I am currently using Manhattan GMAT books. I recently heard someone on here mention a certain grammar book for use on SC. Any opinions on what is the best for SC?

Also, what books would you recommend for the quant? Has anyone used the GMAT math bible and is it any good?

What was Barak's score(B)? (1) B>600 (2) B<620 A few things occurred that worked against me. First of all, I had ...

Heading to the testing center(will post score)

well, I am set to go take the test in about an hour and a half. I do not feel like I'm going to take the GMAT. I ran a couple of miles this morning and took a nice long shower, so I feel very fresh physically. I don't feel very confident because of a dip in my recent GMAT practice tests, but I will ...

Tova, I have been diagnosed with ADHD twice in my life. Once when I was 18 and once when I was a small child. However, those facts are unimportant to the GMAT people because I was not diagnosed within the last three years. Though I am currently treated and medicated for ADHD, I would still be inelig...

hey, thanks alot for the advice. I have been delaying the real thing for a while and may have put up a similar post once or twice. I reviewed my errors and some of the quant mistakes are so frustrating because they are problems that I completely understand how to do and will always get right without...

I felt comfortable with the material, and even though I have only been prepping for a couple of months, I felt confident that I would score 700+, which is what I need. I am suppos...

something different

maybe its just me, but my energy levels, endurance and focus are greatly enhanced from about 30 minutes of working out a few hours before followed by a solid meal. I score much higher on practice tests after a good workout, not one that will wipe you clean mind you. Just enough to get the heart goin...
