Quick GMAT Question- What Should I Do?
I'm in my senior yr at college and have an analyst position locked up to begin in July so I am thinking now of taking the GMAT before I start work (based on the recommendations of those here).
I decided to take a course but my parents think before spending a lot of money on a course I should study on my own, take the test in January and if I don't do as well as I want (at least 700+) then I'll take the course and take the exam before I start in July.
I understand the benefits of doing this (who knows, maybe if I cram in the next 2 months I won't need to shell out the $ and if I don't do as well then I'll at least have a better idea of what I need to focus on and what the test is like), but when applying to B-School isn't it possible that having the multiple scores will hurt my chances?
Also, what course would you guys take? I've read that Manhattan GMAT is the best? Can anyone verify this? Has anyone taken it (or knows anyone who has and can attest to it)?
The Manhattan GMAT comes with a TON of books... the OGs, all their books as well... what other books would you recommend or what they provide is enough?
Thanks in advance!!
