I studied for about 12 weeks.. anywhere from 15-20 hours a week. I took the diagnostic exam first and didn't do too well. Spent 3 weeks going over the Princeton Review book, and then took one of the practice exams PR provided. Went from a 490 to 590 but still nowhere near where I needed my score to ...

I am interested in taking a GMAT Prep course as well and am curious if anyone can speak to the pros and cons of MGMAT versus let's say, Princeton Review? I'm not a fan of classroom instruction but with self study not going too well, I figure a course can't hurt... Been consistently scoring 590 and 6...
