Suggested Course - Veritas vs Knewton [#permalink] New post 24 Mar 2011, 20:54
Hi,

I took the GMAT in Dec 2010 and scored a 680 (Q49,V33) . I am an Indian candidate and plan to retake GMAT in about 3 months time .

The main concern is the Verbal section , and so i am looking for a Verbal centric course .

I shortlisted two courses - Knewton and Veritas On - Demand

But from the mixed reviews available in the forums , i am not able to decide which course to go ahead with . In the forums , Knewton is suggested to be below par as far as the 700 + scores goes.

Please suggest as i need to restart my preps within this week.

Thanks!

Hi vikasblue1,

First off, your 680 is a great start! You may want to check out this write up of our student Abhay's prep experience. He scored a 770 after finishing his Knewton course:

http://www.knewton.com/blog/knewton/inside-knewton/2011/02/21/student-spotlight-abhay-prasanna

If you go with Knewton, you'll also benefit from our 50-point money-back guarantee. With 680 as a baseline, you'd assure yourself of scoring at least a 730. By making use of our Verbal strategy lessons to achieve a better Quant / Verbal balance, many students end up scoring even higher.

Hope that helps, and let us know if you have any questions!

Chris

Thanks Chris!

I was sure of going ahead with Knewton , but there are two things that confused me after reading the reviews

1. Majority of questions , as per the reviews , falls into Easy - Medium range , which i am not sure will help me since my base score is already 680. Maybe that is the perspective of the people who wrote the reviews rather than the actual thing.
Could you please suggest

2.What the reviews says that questions are minor alterations of the Official Guide . So , can i expect variety of practice in Verbal section of the course , once i enroll ?

Hi Vikas,

Good questions. We recently added two features to address the needs of our highest scoring students.

First, we released an upgrade to our course content, which included "700+ Tips" on many of our concept entries. Second, we added several extra challenge quizzes designed to match the most difficult items you'd encounter on the GMAT.

To your second question: Official GMAT questions provide great templates for effective practice, so a number of our problems are built to mirror your performance on them. We provide over 3,000 practice problems in all, though, so you'll find a wide variety of challenging questions to try out. In general, most students are very satisfied with the way their Knewton questions prepare them and predict their performance on test day.

Hope that helps!

Chris
