Bombed My GMAT Exam: Prep Course Advice
I think I may have ruined my chances of getting admitted to a Top 25 program. On test day, I suffered from test anxiety and completely bombed my test, scoring a 460. It's embarrassing. Looks like I'll have to apply again in October with a better score. What in person prep course is better Veritas Prep or Manhattan Prep?
@charles.odie first of all, you are not the first to suffer from test anxiety and you won't be the last, so you are in good company. Don't worry so much about this year vs. next year b/c in the context of your career, it won't really matter. That being said, getting some assistance is a good idea. Veritas and MPrep are both good programs and we've had our clients have success with both programs, but I tend to hear really good things about MPrep and we offer a 10% discount - Admit10 with Manhattan Prep.
Others to consider Princeton Review (15% discount: https://www.princetonreview.com/partner/admit-advantage#!Test-GMAT) , Magoosh, and Bara Sapir has a specialization in test prep anxiety, so you may want to check that out too. Hope that helps. Any others out there that people have had a good experience with?
