    Hi everyone... this Decemeber I'm going to sit for the GMAT and want to study for it. Which tools are better...books, software, or classes? Any recommended books?

    I can not personally attest to the GMAT, but I had to study for the GRE. When I was first scheduled to take the exam it was a written exam, but now everything is computerized. So, I went and bought study guides for the GRE computer version to replace the study guides for the written one. The main difference between the 2 exams for the GRE is the computer version is a progessive exam. The actual number of questions is less for the computer because of the weighting factors involved. The guides I purchased came with CDs with sample exams, so I just sat at my computer and went through several practice exams until I felt comfortable. I would recommend at least get study guides from 2 manufacturers and read them and as a must, do the practice exams provided. Nothing can prepare you for the exam like practice exams.

    Like Kevin, I can only speak for the GRE, but I found it was easiest to just pick up a couple of prep books with companion CDs, and lock myself in my office.

    I'm studying for the GMAT as well. I picked up a study book (I think Barron's) that came with a cdrom. Then, I downloaded the free GMAT software from mba.com. I haven't studied hardcore for it yet so I can't vouch for it's effectiveness but the free software can't hurt.
