Hey roxanzoom,

What sort of prep course are you planing? If it is classroom based it would be advisable to get local students feedback for this purpose. Princeton is a well established brand in GRE Prep and it offers both online and offline options.

While there is no one good test center, there are Many famous coaching classes such as Princeton review, Kaplan Prep, TIME etc.

Each of these classes have good teachers, who have years of experience in coaching large number of students and help them go for masters abroad.

While this works for a lot of students, sometimes, it is preferable to study for Standardized tests on your own. Here are a few points, why I encourage self-study rather than mass study classes:

1. You can set your own pace : Going to classes like Princeton, TIME etc no doubt helps you keep a tempo and study in a group, but sometimes, it is necessary to study at your own pace, especially when it comes to some of the tricky topics in the Quants section like DI and P&C. Similarly, everyone is not a wizard, and it takes a lot of practice to get a hold of Verbal, which is not possible to achieve in Classes.

2. Opportunity to revisit and Rebuild - When you join a coaching centre, you are bound by time tables and study batches, if you miss a lecture, you must attend it in the next cycle's batch or something like that which is not useful especially when you are paying thousands of bucks for your study.

3. You can choose the Best and proven study material : You can choose which books and material you want to study and don't have to re-invent the wheel with custom material of coaching centers.

4. Better environment and convenience: Lastly, nothing can be more convenient than the comfort of studying at your couch or the favorite study table in your room!


It may feel a daunting task to decide to go with Self-preparation, but if the above points inspired you, here are some posts that will help you get started!


Regards,

Manhattan Prep is the one I would recommend. If you look at the quality of their prep books alone, you can see a big difference between it and Princeton.
