Master GMAT Online Prep review [#permalink] New post 13 Dec 2009, 08:01

Hi everyone,

I'm nearly finished with my Master GMAT course -- it was great! I highly recommend it.

Following several requests I decided to share my experience of this course. I can't compare it to other courses but I feel very lucky to have stumbled upon it.

The course boils down to two things - training on the MasterGMAT interactive/adaptive system, and working with a personal instructor. Basically the course attempts to get you to your max score, in as little time as possible (great for busy people like me... I only spent ~100 hours so far on my prep)

PROs
- the bite-sized interactive lessons are really sophisticated and some are quite witty
- the instructor support was great, I especially loved Isaac, a Canadian instructor who answered my SC questions at 2am (GMT)...
-the practice questions were gradually increasing to brutal levels, although in my achiles heel topics (e.g. combinations&permutations) the increase was nice and slow
- there's a stopwatch thingy that pops up regularly to help you develop your time awareness
-you get by email the entire copy of each practice problem about which you asked a question, with detailed feedback by an instructor
- much cheaper than a classroom course (I paid GBP 352)
- overall, I really enjoyed it

CONs
- it was strange during the first couple of weeks not to be able to decide what to work on and when... you basically have to trust the system completely
- the sim tests felt similar to the GMATPreps but I think they have some calibration problem as my scores in them were substantially lower
- questions for the same RC passage would not always appear as a single batch, which was quite annoying whenever I could remember the passage

All in all, my experience with MAster GMAT was superb and I'm grateful to their instructors. At the moment I feel very confident that I'll score +700 but let's see next week...

Hope this helps - good luck!

Currently I am practicing with their verbal section. My impression:
RC is very good. Put it this way - MasterGMAT RC explanations persuaded me that Initial Reading is indeed a useful and efficient way to attack RC questions.

CR is excellent. Explanations are detailed and clear, and many quesitons resemble those dreadful horrors I met on the real test :)

SC is... good. Explanations and questions are great, but some questions are confusing (i.e. a correct answer may contain 'whether or not' or heavy redundancy. I am going to check my doubts with MGMAT SC book.

So, if you're hopeless in CR and RC, I highly recommend MasterGMAT course.

Dear ronanbale,
1. How much did you finally score?
2. Which plan did you purchase from Master GMAT?

I like their SC questions as it comes with very clear explanation. I can't say whether it has improved my score as I have not taken gmat after preparing. I have had two one on one sessions with one of the verbal tutors on SC that was helpful. Initially, I wouldn't even split the sentences efficiently. Now, I have become proficient at that by doing a lot of SC questions.

Hi - How is your prep going? I registered for Master GMAT & I am liking it. One thing Master GMAT could do is a diagnostic test before the start of the course and assess student's strengths/weaknesses and from there on let the algorithm take care of things.

I found Master GMAT to be far more helpful than any book could be, given the time constraints I was under. It moved me through material I understood to that I didn't, in a quick and effective manner--just like the test does. It also made me incredibly familiar with the way questions look on the test, the format, the wording, and the application of concepts. I'd recommend it for anyone taking the GMAT for sure!
