Thursdays With Ron

Every other Thursday, join Ron Purewal for an hour and a half study session. Submit your questions online beforehand and Ron will handpick ones to teach during the session.

Upcoming Session


WHEN
Thursday, Mar 2
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST
WHERE
Meets Online
PRICE
Free!
All attendees must register in advance in order to attend the Thursday session with Ron.

Submit a Question

In order to submit a question, you must be logged in .
  • Make sure you cite the source of your specific problem. Due to copyright issues, Ron cannot discuss a problem without seeing its source.
  • It's OK to ask more general questions if they deal with specific strategies, but try to focus your strategy question to a very specific area. For example, you could ask, "are there any general strategies for rate-time-distance problems?" but Ron probably wouldn't answer the question "how do I do hard geometry problems?"
  • For specific issues with specific problems (for example, "Why is the answer to problem number X, on page Y, (b) and not (c)?") and for help creating your own specific study plan, try our forums instead of the study hall.

If you've signed up for the session and submitted a question, you're all set. If you have any additional questions, e-mail gmat@manhattanprep.com for more information.

Simply register for the next session and you will receive an e-mail containing a link to the online classroom.
