You can look into Optimus Prep - they are based in Germany and offer a number of tutoring options (and possibly classes). Their offer is slightly different in Germany vs. what is available through GMAT Club, so you can try and see about their offer - they offer a free consultation.

Good Luck!

If anyone is looking to sign up for Veritas Prep and wants $100 referral credit, please send me a message and I will send you a referral email. I took the Veritas On-Demand course (which for me was $850) and loved it. Highly recommend Veritas to everyone, but specifically the On-Demand course for people who are independent learners and get frustrated w/ in person training courses being side tracked by one or two people asking 8th grade level questions :-D

I don't know much about them besides that it is an off-shot from the original Manhattan Review - one of their execs left and started this company. I have hard absolutely nothing good or bad about their instruction or materials they use. Would be curious to hear your thoughts and feedback.

BB, thank you for your comments. If I happen to take the course I will definitely share my experience with you then. Do you know any good GMAT prep course in Dresden Germany. I am going to be there between October 10 and December 6. I'd like to improve my skills somehow. Yesterday I tried to take a practice exam for the first time and could only get 510, Quant 42, Verbal 19. I may be taking the exam in the end of November or in the beginning of December in Germany. My aim is to get 680 at least. Do you think it is real at all?

Hi there, just wondering if anyone has has experience with Brett Etheridge's full dominate the GMAT programme and whether i could get some objective feedback/first hand perspective on same? Also find it curious that I'm not finding anyone commenting on grockit's programme....although maybe not as comprehensive as some of the other courses I've been seeing mentioned on the blog, they offer a really wide question base at a super reasonable cost
