What online course do you recommend

by mba700 » Wed Sep 11, 2013 2:46 am
My background:
  • 29 years old
    7 years engineering experience
    Msc degree
    Did GMAT 4 years ago, scored 630 - just did official guide, no online course.
Current GMAT approach:
  • Aiming for 700+ this time
    Paid for GmatPrepNow and finding it very helpful.
    Doing GMAT official guide with it.
I feel i need a question bank to do more practice. Something like this https://www.kaptest.com/GMAT/GMAT-Prep/O ... -bank.html But this only has 1000 questions. Full kaplan on demand course has 5000 questions + 9 online tests.
I am doing GmatPrepNow already, Kaplan on demand videos may just be repetition of what ive done in GmatPrepNow. What would you recommend?
Also need to do some online practice tests. What would you recommend?

Thanks in anticipation

Before you pay for anything, try the free Veritas Prep Question Bank and the free Veritas Prep CAT.

Here is the link for the question bank. https://www.veritasprep.com/gmat-question-bank/

Here is the link for the free CAT (Veritas students get five more of these). https://www.veritasprep.com/gmat/free-gm ... tice-test/

Do you also need some strategy help as well? In other words, do have a strategy for each question type and are you using these questions to move you forward? That is more important than the number of questions.

Have you taken a practice test yet? If not, take the one above and see where you are!

Hi mba700,

It would probably be a good idea to have a measure of your current abilities under test-like conditions, so that we can figure out which areas for you to focus on. I suggest that you take one of the free practice CATs from www.mba.com (be sure to take the entire test, including essay and IR). These scores can really help you to plan out your studies and when you should take your actual GMAT.

Once you've taken that CAT, report back with your scores and I'll be happy to advise.
