    Hi pri123456,
    My DH attended Veritas GMAT elite test prepartion(www.veritasprep.com) and took the test , but got low score as he has put less hours of prepartion as he has to go for job, he is preparing to give next month again.

    Manhattan Gmat material is good and you can buy through them and also can get on amazon also.

    If you need any more information feel free to ask.
    wish you all the best

    You can go on the official GMAT website and they have two free practice tests that are timed and give you a score. Those two simulations look and feel exactly like the real test will. I studied for about a week and scored a 650. I was short on time and only had one week to take the test... so I just brushed up on basic math techniques and did a few practice tests. If you had more time I would get some review books and take more practice tests, then analyze where you are weakest and try to improve on those points.

    hey hi ASG great! you got 650 for just 1 week prepartion ,my DH was preparing from last october and on 6th of this month gave test & scored 500 only, the thing he could put just 1 to 2 hrs per day preparations as he has to go for work and inbetween had some issues in office and he started after 14 yrs of his graduation.
    He resigned his job now & next month is taking again the test.

    So did you applied for school or looking to take again the test for higher score.
