GMAT students often spend more than 50 hours preparing over a six- to eight-week period. Students looking to break 600
to gain entry into a top school or who have been out of school for several years need the most work to brush up their math and test-taking skills.
Consider taking a classroom or online course if you need additional help. Your
score may increase by 100 to 200 points.
There are two main for options for GMAT prep: an online course or a classroom course.
Online GMAT courses are perfect for students who do not live where reputable classroom courses are offered or who don't have the time to go to a class. Online courses are either self-study or are conducted through virtual classrooms.
Live, in-person GMAT classroom courses are more expensive and take more time, but they provide in-depth support and motivation. Many students start with an online self-study course and then take a classroom course to focus on weak areas.
