A bit of background about me (this is written without ego or arrogance, and if it seems otherwise then please don't get annoyed
I was a complete novice with regards to GMAT even as recent as January 2014. I had only heard of the exam but knew NOTHING about it at all. Internet was my ONLY tool for gaining a basic understanding of what the exam was about !
After i got a basic idea of the exam i had to decide on coaching centres. After a bit of searching I narrowed down to the Kaplan and Jamboree centres in numgambakkam (the only major area close to my house. While nungambakkam is not very close , but it is closer compared to other places where coaching centres are present) and was torn between the two. Finally a friend of mine acted as the tie breaker and suggested i go to Jamboree. For reasons i still dont know i decided against Princeton right from the outset of my decision making (partially , maybe, because it is in T. Nagar which is annoyingly crowed ALL the time
My batch was from 2-5 p.m on weekends and had 3 students (who were pretty weak in their basics) other than me and i would get so bored waiting for them to solve the maths questions and so i started finishing entire exercises in the time they took to solve 5-10 questions. The maths faculty noticed this and said that i had potential and asked me to come from 5-8. Basically he sacrificed his own free time because he felt i was worth it ! (am grateful to him for that)
English classes were better since most of the times my batch mates skipped the english classes ( we indian do have more affinity towards numbers than language, yes ?
I wrote a whole lot of practice tests as well ( THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ADVICE I CAN GIVE TO ANYONE- PLEASE WRITE LOADS OF TESTS AND ANALYZE YOUR MISTAKES . THIS GIVES YOU VALUABLE POINTERS REGARDING WHAT TO DO AND WHAT NOT TO ON THE TEST DAY) and was hovering between 690 and 730 and both the teachers helped me chip away at my silly mistakes one by one. They were very accommodating. I used to spend 4-5 hours on the saturdays as well as sundays during the last 5-6 weeks before my exam. The administrative staff were very flexible with my demands.
After my exam was over the first person i called was my maths teacher ! He came over to my test centre to congratulate me !
All in all i am satisfied with my entire experience.

Review about Jamboree Adyar center,Chennai.
Synopsis: Complete waste of time and money.
Recently I have joined Jamboree institute for GMAT class(weekend batch). Jamboree provide 4 books ( OG-13, Reb book, Green Book, Blue Book). They will not cover any basics of English, first class itself they will start with SC and teacher will ask you to solve first lesson in Red book and teacher will go and sit in the staff room. After 30 min she will come and she will start with explanation. In the first day she will read underline portion but not options only she will mention why we need to eliminate(if you are not good at English you cant understand many things). Second day onward's teach will not even read underline portion, directly elimination process. In 15 to 30 min of time 24 questions will be solved in the class. Just conceive if we able solve 24 questions less than 30 min. Do we really need to join the class?
Most interesting point is from third class on-wards it will take less than 15 min to solve 24 questions. Just imagine how fast teacher will explain/solve the questions in class. Since teacher know the question and answer, teacher say the question number and answer choice nothing else.
If you are looking to improve your English. Please don't join in Jamboree.
Can anyone suggest me which one is better coaching center to join for gmat preparation at present?
