This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course Live Online | Location: Online | Taught by: David Newland

Baackground- I have been out of school for a while, so I needed a good kickstart of the GMAT. If you have been away from school, taking a course like Veritas Prep is vert helpful.

Instructor- I was very impressed with our instructor, David. He was always trying to engage the class and was very peppy every day.

Coursework- To improve at the GMAT, you need to put in the work. Sometimes the classroom sessions are not necessarily hard enough or the class gets stuck on an easy problem. The homework and the 7 extra tests Veritas gives you is very beneficial. You should really do the homework or as much as you can between lessons. If you come prepared before class and do the work after class your score will improve.

To note- Our instructor did recommend that you actually do some real GMAT questions leading up to the test. So, that is what I did. Veritas gave me a great foundation and about two weeks before the test, I really studied all official GMAT materials and got the score I needed.

This review is for: Veritas Prep On-Demand | Location: Online

When I decided that I want to do my MBA and did an online GMAT demo test. My score was really poor.

I enrolled in the Veritas Prep On Demand Course - It was amazing! The program is structured very well and I watched all of the videos and did a lot of exercises.

By the end of the preparation, I took a test and I realized that my score did not improve so much. I felt that I need a more strong preparation so I bought in-person class with other company.

I think this course is well structure, but I felt that was not enough to achieve a higher score.

Overall, I think the "On demand" package is a great value and provides hours of study materials.

This review is for: Economist GMAT Tutor Complete Prep | Location: Online

I started my Gmat Tutor course 3 weeks ago. I already tried other courses for Gmat but none have help me focus on my weakness as Gmat Tutor do.

Its a unique system were you are forced to improve your weakness while you don't waste valuable time on your strongest sections. Its amazing how good this works.

The course also show you updated statistics of your improvement (200-800 score scale) and your productivity (hours spend learning and course progress). This statistics are very interesting, although i think they could complement them with more, such as the accuracy rate by time of problem.

I also suggest Gmat Tutor to complement its offer with a The Economist free subscription - Its make all the sense as everyone knows the Economist as the best source to improve the reading skills of non-native speakers. Usually the first 3 months of subscription is cheap (12£ in UK and 30 € on Europe) - this values are a little portion of the costs of the course, so doesn't make sense why Gmat Tutor doesnt include this on the course.

I really advise everyone to try the Gmat Tutor for the first free 7 days - you will enjoy it! In 3 weeks i already improve 100 points avoiding careless mistakes.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online | Location: Online

I am using eGMAT from Jun 2015. Their verbal course is the best in the lot. The forum is very active and is a big plus.The verbal course is structured to start with the basics and develops the focus to ace the GMAT. If you are willing to unlearn and relearn the basics for verbal this course will be helpful. I feel that e-gmat is more detailed in teaching both SC and CR. It teaches you the application, not just the rules.

Thanks to e-gmat. I recommend Verbal online course to anyone who have problem in verbal, especially in SC and CR and who wants to give the test in very short duration.

This review is for: Economist GMAT Tutor Premium Prep | Location: Online

Overall, I found this course to be brilliant. I chose the "Premium" pack, as I thought 6 months was a good time period. I thought this pack was quite expensive, however it proved to be worth it for me in the end.

In particular, I found it very advantageous that I didn't have to select my own study material and grind through it. I liked that I could just set aside time to study, and the course would walk me through everything I needed to know. I did find that it did not cover AWA or IR in much detail, although the AWA template they suggest is great.

On the first practice exam I took (after no study) I scored a 560. This was during the "free trial" via the iPad app. I wanted to score a 650+ for the courses I'm targeting, though thought I was capable of early 700's with the time I had to prepare over 6 months. I found I had to get back into "exam mode", not having taken any intense exams since uni finished 8 years ago.

After the course, some study of my own and two official GMATPrep exams (~100hrs in the course, ~50hrs of my own study) I scored as follows:
AWA: 5.5/6
IR: 8/8
Quant: 47
Verbal: 44
Combined: 730


Pros:
- Well structured course.
- Covers the content of the GMAT well.
- Adaptive coursework systems worked well for me.
- If you are disciplined and put in the hours, your skills (and score) will improve significantly.
- Tutoring sessions were good, it was comforting to talk to someone with a lot of experience with the GMAT (I don't know anyone else who's undertaken this exam).
- Practice exams give a good ballpark of where you are currently at, and build up your exam taking stamina well.

Cons (minor):
- No AWA or IR sections on the practice exams (V/Q only), although you can time yourself and practice these in addition when doing a practice exam.
- Not much coverage for AWA or IR in the course, other than a couple of IR questions, and the AWA template.
- AWA essay marking was quite harsh (although I understand this is encouraged by Economist) and sometimes the critical comments were not helpful.

I never really used the Ask a Tutor function, as I never really found a question that the course didn't explain well enough that I needed further info.

I am also a native English speaker (who communicates a lot in my day job), and so had a natural advantage in the Verbal and AWA sections.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course Live Online | Location: Online

I have taken two preparation courses. The first was the Veritas prep and the second the manhattan prep.

My first course was taken 2 years ago - the books were ok (at the time they seemed very good but after using the MGMAT prep ones I find the Veritas below average).

I found this course a great refresher on test fundamentals but lots of extra practice required. I cannot perform well only with this course as it content is done only to well the 550 / 600 achievers.

In my opinion you don't have to spend to much money to learn the content for a 600 score. But, if you spent, go for Manhattan Prep.

This review is for: Manhattan Prep GMAT MGMAT Live Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Ryan Starr

Its True: Manhattan GMAT provides students with the skills and strategies essential for success !

The course is very comprehensive given you the opportunity to improve your skills in each of the section tested on Gmat Exam.

The course is special good for the ones who want to improve the quant score - i notice that the mocks exams on quant section are harder than the real exam.

My improvement on quant section were from Q37 to Q47.

Notice that our score really depends on the work he put into studying plan. With discipline, focus, and a time, he can achieve our dream score.

Must have for SC section December 12 | 2015

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online | Location: Online

I would like to recommend the e-Gmat course to as a must have for your SC section preparation.

I get an improvement from V25 to V35 with the e-gmat verbal online. My improvement is mainly due to the SC section. The SC course is a must have for a non-native. The course presents all the gramar rules you should know in a very intuitive way.

Only 15 days were enough to see a considerable improvement in my skills.

The RC and CR are also good but don't expect a good improvement if you already learn the methodology from other companies.

Try and you will enjoy it!

This review is for: EMPOWERgmat Online Course | Location: Online

I was able to improve from a 580 to 720 (Q47 V41 AWA6 IR7) after just two months with Empower! I did use another test prep company right before Empower to brush up on the basic concepts, but I really believe the tactics and tricks Empower teaches are worth preaching and are refreshingly different compared to those of other companies. During the exam, knowing when to trash a question was absolute key during the quant section.

I took a GMATprep practice test 2 weeks before my exam date and I got a 660. I was so disappointed and almost lost hope that I could obtain my dream score. But I tried my hardest anyway and what I think made the biggest difference was focusing on the verbal section. The same amount of points in verbal meant so much more than the same amount of points in quant. That was something I never would've realized without Empower. THANK YOU!! I should probably mention my quant score only improved 3 points since day 1! Without Empower I wouldn't even know how to study smart and use my time efficiently.

Now I am able to apply to my target schools knowing that my GMAT will not be the reason I do not get in.

I definitely recommend this program to anyone who's interested in taking the GMAT.

Concepts and application never looked that easy December 10 | 2015

This review is for: e-GMAT Quant Live Prep | Location: Online | Taught by: Payal Tandon

I am an IITian but after working on repetitive tasks for about 12 years made my sharp brain a bit slow and when I gave some mocks back in 2013 I was very disheartened with my results, That kind of affected my confidence as not only I was not able to go beyond 30-34 in verbal but also couldn't manage 50 in quant and that time I thought I needed a serious plan and material to practice with after analysing my techniques I figured out that my concepts and their application was not spot on and because of that I was wasting a lot of time too. Then through gmat club and online reviews I found e-gmat. Although I could not study for another 2 years because of work and personal stuff but now I am back on track to sit for GMAT and I am lot more confident in quant as well as in verabal. This is by far be the best online course I have ever seen and any hard copy or soft copy material. I would recommend e-gmat to anyone without thinking twice, money well spent. I have never thought concepts would look that easy to me.
