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

The course is comprehensive and gives you all the tools you need to prepare for the GMAT.

I found the videos to be easy to follow and the respective assignments were very helpful. I loved the included custom quizzes. I had a tutor who discussed with me all questions during online lessons. The practice tests were realistic and gave me an estimated GMAT score. i did not take all of them but they were still great for observing your progress.

The online tutoring lessons that were included in the platinum version were arranged on a flexible basis. My tutor showed my some great techniques for timing and eliminating.

Overall, I give this course 5 of 5 stars...

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Payal Tandon

I am a native English speaker and took e-gmat’s online verbal course. This was the best decision I have made with regard to my GMAT preparation. As an older student with a life spent in math orientated careers, I felt my challenge would be in the verbal section of the test. For this reason and the length of time that had expired since I last took any tests, I felt I needed some insight to the latest verbal rules and nuances of the test. While reviewing several popular GMAT prep sites, I found e-gmat. Reading the description, posts and reviews I decided that because this course was oriented towards non-native speakers, it would provide greater coverage of the rules of English, and do so in a foundational, building-block manner. This course delivered on that assumption.

On-line power-point presentations of the English grammar rules can be dull and boring, but e-gmat writers and graphic designers really go out of their way to include graphics and emo-cons that give a little comic relief and helps keep your attention moving with the concepts. I went through every section presented in the verbal on-line course and attended many of the free introductory courses. I feel this was the pivotal point of my preparation and was very pleased with the result.

My last ‘test’ that included any type of writing was decades ago. From the day I learned what the GMAT was I only had 2 months until I sat for the exam and I feared the worst. However, after using e-gmat verbal on-line to study, my first attempt landed me a V38 and AWA of 5. While I would love to improve my score (which I will try later, as my quant score that I was so confidante in took a deep dive – apparently recently teaching pre-calc was not the preparation I thought it would be, so I am now enrolled in e-gmat’s live and on-line quant course), I was happy with these stats: overall 85%; critical reasoning 88%; Sentence Correction 81% and the low ball was Reading Comp at 68%. This almost exactly parallels my study emphasis. I assumed Reading Comp would be my best and studied it the least. The take away here is to study it all equally!

Do as many problems as possible, use the process that is laid out by the instructors. Rajat, Payal and the entire team of instructors are experts and tell us that at first it takes more time to follow their strategies, but with practice this time is shortened and the information obtained is critical to answering the questions correctly and not wasting precious time. I found this to be true and will follow their advice even more closely when I retake the exam next month. I believe going from 0 to 85% in 2 months of prep, including prepping for all the other parts of the exam which were all unknown to me at the on-start, was an outstanding result and I am very satisfied with the time and money spent for e-gmat!

It is very interesting to share my opinion about e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep.It is very helpful for beginner to sound students for improving verbal section.Their step by step process for RC,SC and CR is awesome.In RC section, key reading strategies,identify main point & inference techniques have played an important role in my RC part.CR and SC online course are too much helpful to define.In CR question, the pre-thinking concept & strategy make me think in a confident way to solve CR Question. I am very much grateful to e-GMAT instructors.I am very lucky to be the course taker of e-GMAT.

The E-Gmat Verbal online GMAT course was an excellent resource in preparing to take the GMAT exam. The sheer quality of the overall learning experience is immediately evident in the way the course and related materials are presented.The verbal live classes are well designed and keeps the class engaged, while discussing topics that may not always be the most exciting.The E-gmat course is backed by highly-experienced individuals with a goal of constant improvement. The course is thoughtfully architected, delivering a robust experience that included: Verbal live classes,Scolaranium, online problem sets, and online practice tests. I have already recommended it to colleagues and I recommend it especially to students who feels verbal is tough and hard to crack in gmat.

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

We Indians especially engineers have this tendency towards GMAT quant that it would be like a cakewalk. I too had this notion but it soon faded away after my first GMAT attempt where I scored Q47 which is basically 68 percentile. I knew I needed something more and one day while browsing GC I chanced upon e-GMAT free-session on Inequalities. I just loved the approach with which they solved questions in the online session. After the session I took the free trial of the course and checked out course material. They have exhaustively covered all the topics and have great online instructors. They also provide a study routine which is handy. After the week I joined the Live-Prep course and since it's been going great going. I can see clear improvements in my timings and understanding.

This review is for: Math Revolution All-In-One Course | Location: Online

I took the GMAT twice in September and October after taking his class July. I got the math score of 50 for the two tests. Before I took the first text, I was a bit nervous about the score I would get, but I realized soon that I didn’t need to worry that much with the help of Max Lee at Math Revolution.

The biggest benefit to take Math Revolution course is that it can save the time to prepare for the math section of the GMAT. Its approaches consist of two, Variable approach for Data Sufficiency (D/S) section and IVY approach for Problem Solving (P/S) section.

In particular, I could save a lot of time with the help of Variable approach. It is basically based on the principle that in order to solve an equation, the number of variables should be equal to the number of equations. With the combination of Common Mistake Types and Tip, the approach raises your probability for the correct answers dramatically. When I was under pressure for the time constraint, I could rely on the approach and get the right answer. As Max noted, the approach for the D/S problem should be different from the one for P/S problem.

Here are basic differences between the D/S and the P/S.

D/S: Logical Problems, The purpose is to identify whether there can be an answer or not.

P/S: Calculating Problems, The purpose is to get the right answer.

With regard to the IVY approach, Max teaches the problem solving method in an easy and logical way. Instead of depending on guess work, he developed unique methods such as Axiom Approach and 2 by 2. For example, he demonstrates that you can make statements into mathematical expressions. You can convert greater than or more than into + and is into =. I could avoid making mistakes with these kinds of mathematical methods.

In conclusion, I really learned a lot from him. When it comes to math, Max makes an emphasis on the principle of “SDH.” S stands for slow, D for detail and H for hands. When you solve math problems, you should solve the problem slowly by thinking a lot, write solutions in detail and use your hands instead of brain. If you prepare for the GMAT math with Max according to his advice and methods, I think you can easily get at a score of 50 or 51.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course Live Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Ravi Sreerama

First things first, I have to applaud Ravi. The guy knows his stuff and more importantly he knows how to deliver the message to his students. You can tell he is passionate about what he does, which makes the class breeze by. Although online, the class is extremely engaging. Not to mention, Ravi has his ways of telling when you aren't paying attention and will get you back on track.

Veritas prep itself is a very organized program. Each class has its own book, which is great because you don't have to lug around a gigantic book. The website is easy to use and offers a lot of helpful tools.

I would definitely recommend this class!

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

After 2 months of self-study, I was going nowhere with my verbal. Accuracy was not improving. With just 1 month left for the exam date, I signed up for eGMAT. eGMAT has ONE OF THE BEST comprehensive materials out there for verbal. I watched all the videos. After every concept, there are application files and practice files that really make your concepts solid. I absolutely enjoyed scholaranium concept. I just wish I could have used up all my ability quizzes (I could take only 40% of the quizzes because I had limited time). Also, I couldn't use the resources available for IR, but I believe they're equally good. I got a V39 in my first GMAT attempt. While I didn't get a V40-42 as i had wished to, I was more confident than ever before with my verbal concepts and I could tell that V38 is a guarantee.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium | Location: Online | Taught by: Mike McGarry

I got a 680 (Q-44, V-38) on my first GMAT and was really disappointed as I had put a lot of time in my studies and had gotten a 720 (Q-47, V-42) on my last GMAT prep practice exam. I enrolled with Magoosh only because of the 50 point guarantee but never expected to get at least a 730. I just took the test and got a 740 unofficial score with Q-49 and V-42. My Quant score has never been that high and I owe it all to Magoosh! The practice question are so well put and really makes you think about how to approach the official questions correctly.

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

I brought the e-gmat verbal course after taking the trial. In short the course is pretty awesome :)

SC - The meaning driven three step approach is very methodical. If you understand the approach, SC will be lot easier. I have been able to improve my accuracy greatly as a direct result of following the three step approach. The OG solutions are a real bonus

CR- Pre thinking or Predictive answering is the backbone of this course. This approach helped me both in CR and RC. CR was my weakest area when I started prep and this course has helped me a lot.

RC - I am a reader - so didn't have much problem with RC. The application and practice files in RC are of very good quality.

Scholaranium - Absolutely amazing product! it has pretty advanced analytics built in to pinpoint your weakness and strengths.

Last but not the least - amazing customer service.

All in all, for non-natives this is an excellent value for money!
