This review is for: Optimus Prep™ On Demand Course
Location: Online

The Optimus Prep online course is an incredibly user friendly program which helps you grasp most of the essential concepts needed for the GMAT.

The online course has extensive material for the quantitative, verbal and integrated reasoning. The website and videos are very well made and user friendly. It's easy to navigate each video, skip a section if you like to and find a specific concept.
It's also easy to review your progress as you go along and you get benchmark "trophies" as you go along when you complete a specific number of questions.
Furthermore, there are multiple CAT test which you can try out which resemble a GMAT test.

Overall, I found the online course from Optimus to be extremely helpful. Especially in terms of value, the Optimus prep online course is second to none. The course material is very well made and you get extensive, user friendly material which should help you on your way to achieve a good score on the GMAT.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep

Taught by: Rajat Sadana

Before I started to prepare for GMAT, I have a chance to join E-GMAT free strategy workshop, which Rajat share his opinions on how people should prepare for GMAT. This session is really useful and I decided to enrol for GMAT live prep(E-GMAT courses for both Verbal and Quant).

Before I started the course I decided to took the gmatprep again to gauge my ability, while I already took it 1 time 3years ago at that time I score a dismal 450 but at that time my English wasn't very good, I didn't understand what's DS want from me, etc. so I decided to took it again to check my current ability.I got 590 (Q46,V25) while this improve a lot from last practice test, I knew that the road to 700 for me is sill a long way to go.

So I started my preparation in verbal, I've found that E-GMAT strategy for CR and SC is really effective.The interactive class is a useful way you to help you learn and the practice questions give you opportunities to practice concepts you just learned. I've found that E-GMAT concept files and practice questions complement with OG was enough for me, and due to time constrain I didn't attend their workshop, so I can't comment on those.

Oww what an amazing path we did together.
i was a retaker with 590 v26Q44 score previously and i had only 06 weeks to have a least 650
due to application constraint.
For my first attempt i only used Manhantan books. 02 days after official test, i started again
with well know books (Veritas, Princeton, ...). 02 weeks after i score 590 on the mock, i was so disappointed.
i started looking for a real SOLUTION, which means for me affordable and efficient as i had only 04 weeks left at that time.
in 20 min i decided to take EMPOWERGMAT. why? $85 / per month was excatly what i needed in term of time and was affordable.
And it had 5/5 reviews on gmatclub. so why not? i mean at that point i didn't have anything else as solution.
The EMPOWERGMAT tatics helped so much on quant and the 5s scan on SC really help me on the verbal section.
I will always remember Rich final podcast before the exam: i won't tell you good luck because there is nothing about luck on this exam
put everything down on the pad, work of each point, dump any nasty or crazy question.
During the exam, i was calm,confident. I dumped 3 - 4 crazy questions on the quant session and had 49.
On the verbal, the 5s scan helped so much when i was out of time on the SC. I had a small passage on last 10 questions, i was running out of time
in the past i would have skimmed but i didn't this time, thanks to Max advice. And it gaves me confidence to dump 2 CR questions which was my weakness any way.

Taking EMPOWERGMAT was a very smart decision and i don't regret any of dollars paid for that course;it was worth it.

May be in the next coming months or years i will retake the GMAT just to be in the 700 club, but 680 was what i needed for my applications

PS: Engineer, non-native.

This review is for: e-GMAT Quant Live Prep
Location: Online

I gave my GMAT exam in march of 2013 and scored 640(Q45, V35). I made the classic mistake of studying until the very last minute and not sleeping properly before the night of the exam (barely 4 hours of sleep) and my exam was early morning. I was very disappointed, especially since i am from an engineering background and always considered Math to be one of my strengths.

After some time, I decided to give it another try and registered for e-gmat Quant live prep. Although i haven't taken the GMAT exam yet, I found the Quant videos to be extremely helpful. I loved the number properties videos and also the advanced Quant videos (probability and P&C Questions). I hope to perform well in me next attempt. Based on my current experience, I would highly recommend e-gmat courses to any aspiring students. The teaching staff is exceptional.

I have been preparing for GMAT on and off for sometime and i had difficulty in managing a very busy schedule at work ranging from 10-14 hours at times and devoting enough time for preparation. I gave my first GMAT test in march 2013 where i scored 640(Q45, V35).

Neeless to say i was very disappointed and decided to give it a second try. I have registered for e-gmat courses and found their video lessons to be very helpful especially the verbal courses. I have tried several other reputed course material which are also good, but I found e-gmat method of video lessons to be especially helpful for somebody who is having a hard time concentrating after a very long day at work. Since i haven't been able to give my exam on time, they have been gracious enough to extend my registration till the end of my GMAT exam. I hope to revisit and give another update after my GMAT is done.

First of all-timelines.
I joined jamboree online complete GMAT package on 8th Oct 2015 and gave my GMAT on 28th Dec 2015. So approximately 3 months duration.

Reason for online course: I am a working professional so time constraints and also as I wanted to give GMAT before 30 Dec to be eligible for SP JAIN and ISB, classroom sessions were not finishing by that time.

COURSE REVIEW: There is no need to refer to other materials if you take this course. Conceptual videos covers all the basic concepts , no less or more. Practice questions are enough to rectify one's mistakes and gain confidence. Full length tests were also good (though they were static and not adaptive as GMAT test).

Weak part of the course: weekly webinar sessions. For me , this was the weak part as very less is covered in 3 hours session. I attended only two sessions and missed all others as
I gained more by 3 hrs self-study than studying through these sessions.

Doubt clearing sessions were good. I had one on-call doubt clearing session with tutor Mr. Ajitesh. He cleared my doubts and helped me in planning my preparation.

All in all, course rating is very good.

Thanks,
Sumit

I signed up for e-gmat's GMAT Live Prep after struggling with my studies for a long time. Being a non-native speaker, I was having a really difficult time in the verbal section. After reading a lot of positive reviews and going through some free session, I decided to sign-up with e-gmat. It turned out to be the best decision of my GMAT journey. The course content and the delivery method is absolutely perfect. The strategies are easy to follow and cover everything you need for the GMAT. The scholaranium serves as a perfect practice platform. Everything about the course is just amazing. They have got some amazing instructors who are always there to help you out. I would highly recommend the course to everyone, especially the ones who are struggling with the verbal section.

I started to prepare for GMAT an year before.Went to Time coaching centre(a decent coaching centre having branches in most places over India).I understood most of things taught there and prepared well for exam.A few days before exam I wrote a mock test and was shocked to see my performance especially in English section (530 with Q21).

Heard from my cousine about egmat course(He had got 690 and is into Boston University now :) ) .I cancelled my GMAT date and joined for e-gmat.I improved my Verbal ability from 21 to 30 in 8 days .Have not took my GMAT yet .Planing for last week of Feb but am sure I will get a good score.Crystal clear concepts taught on best possible way.I was not interested in an online class but now onwards I would go only for online classes .
Hats off to e-gmat way of reaching.

When I 1st thought of taking up GMAT, I knew verbal is where I’ll fall. After going through MGMAT SC and CR practicing a lot from different sources, I scored 28 in verbal which solidified my fear. I immediately started preparing for my 2nd attempt but was in doubt as I didn’t have clear plan for verbal. One of friends recommended e-GMAT to me and after attending the free strategy and RC class, I was confident that it’ll be helpful for me.
My weakest area, being a non-native, was SC. In my 1st attempt I was completely surprised that the questions I was doing in the actual test were out of my comprehension, even though I did go through a number of materials online and scored above 700 multiple times during the prep. After attending the 1st few classes of SC, my problem was clear to me. I had difficulty understanding the meaning of the question. My previous strategy was to look for an error in question and read all the options and eliminate them accordingly.
e-GMAT focus on meaning understanding really helped me. For me best aspect of the course were the live sessions. I was able to clear my doubts and at the same time see various others queries and problems which my fellow classmates were having. The discussion in live session really helped me hone my verbal understanding.
Fortunately after just a 45 days of signing up, I gave my 2nd attempt and scored 37 in verbal, yielding an overall score of 730.
I would recommend e-GMAT to anyone having difficulties in verbal. Their course structure is designed help noobs & pros alike. Most importantly it won’t hurt your pocket as much as its competitive courses would.
