8HOW TO PREPAREThere are two ways students prepare for GMAT: Self study and Coaching classes. Both these options have unique benefits and no one method of studying is better than the other. These two methods can’t be compared as they both serve to different audiences. If money is a consideration, then self study is the better option. You could save money on personal tuitions and classes, but you need to keep in mind other factors too. To be able to study on your own affectively, you need a good resource of books and study material, along with motivation and self-discipline. If time is a consideration, then coaching classes are the better option. You will have access to a better resource of study materials, and will have a team of experts guiding you. Your time will be better managed as being regular to classes will become part of your routine. Plus being around other students will increase your motivation levels. To choose the best method of study you first need to look at your criteria, whether it is money or time, and decide accordingly.
