This review is for: Kaplan GMAT Prep - Live Online PLUS Course | Location: Online | Taught by: Joseph Tambornino

I've used Manhattan, Magoosh, and Kaplan, and absolutely loved the Kaplan program. I raised my score from a 700 to a 750, and I think much of it was due to Kaplan's support and test-day experience. I got to sit down and take an actual GMAT test in a certified test center, which I think is an incredible advantage to any student looking to embark on this for the first time. Also, the mentor they provided me sent me over an awesome "how to structure your homework and studying" guide that I've since passed on to anyone looking for help. It really made a difference this time around. Finally, the ease of use and sheer amount of resources Kaplan provides in addition to the standard classes/homework are awesome. The quiz banks and workshops were super helpful and kept me busy until test day. By the way, Joseph is a rockstar.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep | Location: Online | Taught by: Rajat Sadana

I joined this course on the reference of my friend who cracked the ISB with GMAT score of 740.
The Verbal Live Prep course is well drafted. The online course provides the flexibility to pace the course as per own needs and time availability.
The course is divided into SC, CR & RC sections with the study plan customized to move ahead in the course. The concepts in each section are well-defined and illustrated with good examples. There are short quizzes pre and post the concept to analyze the learning made. Within the section there are practice tests and quizzes to analyze the progress made whether to go ahead in the course or have a relook on the concepts. Any queries in the understanding can be posted in the forum and the elaborate reply on the same is made well in time.
There are also the Instructor Led Live Sessions in which one should go after going thru the concepts as advised in the study plan and the luminous faculty discusses the GMAT and prototype questions to further clarify the concepts. The platform is very interactive for the students to engage with the faculty.
There are pdfs available to refer if required.
The Scholaranium is another platform given to check the preparations made and assess the learning in various concepts in each section.
Access to 800ScoreTests is also helpful to prepare in whole for the GMAT.
The course material along with OG is sufficient enough to prepare for the GMAT exam and give enough confidence to crack the exam with good score. Rest depends on the hard work put in. I am thankful to the e-GMAT helping me to score 700 in the GMAT exam.

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

I am an engineer by profession and I have been thinking about retaking GMAT for quite sometime. I scored 660 in my first attempt about 3 years back. Being an engineer, Quant was an easy game for me. I scored 49 in Quant in my first attempt. However, Verbal was a nightmare.
I was stumped by difficult SC questions and I always get 2-3 RC questions incorrect per passage. That's when I started searching for an online course and came across e-gmat. There are few things which I really liked about e-gmat. First of all,its really affordable and comes at a decent price. Secondly, I am big fan of learning through videos. Hence, e-gmat was a perfect fit for my needs.
I subscribed to their Verbal online course and started with SC. I can tell with great confidence that gmat SC is like solving a math problem. It's all with the systematic approach and e-gmat's step by step approach improved my SC drastically. Coming to CR, pre-thinking was another concept that helped me tremendously and I was able to see good improvement to my CR hit rate in just 3 weeks. I am yet to start on RC and planning to start doing it this week. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants systematic & methodical approach. I am sure you will never regret by taking e-gmat Verbal Online.

Ravi Sreerama is the best December 20 | 2015 2 out of 2 people found the following review helpful

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

So I attended a live online course at Veritas Prep with Ravi Sreerama from 9 September to 18 October 2015.
First, I must mention that I am Nigerian and also attended all my online classes from Nigeria where a steady and reliable internet is not a given. I, eventually, was able to get a moderate internet supply and was able to attend these classes. I am quite surprised at how Veritas made this so easy that it seems like I was part of the physical class by the use of side chats with Brigidette, follow up chats with Ravi during breaks and polls during classes.
Secondly, I was privileged to be tutored by The best; Ravi Sreerama. I know he's the best because I have interacted with a couple of tutors, had another tutor stand in for him on Word Problems, and have also attended some classes such that I can easily stack them against each other. He has this uncanny ability to break problems down, make them look simple and also get you thinking in a particular way; thinking more like the test maker. In his words, 'if you can't spot the sucker answer, you just picked it', 'fractions are friendly, decimals are deadly', 'sometimes, you just need to dump it down', 'always use the reward chart to validate your answers'... He is gifted and maybe, you don't want to be tutored by someone else. He follows up on his students during the week, tries to understand areas where one is struggling during class and off the class, and also motivates you to push your limits. Veritas is lucky to have him.
Thirdly, Veritas has a structure or method of learning coupled with materials that ensures you have the fundamentals, hone your skills, and master the test. So from Skillbuilders to classes with Ravi, to homeworks, on-demand courses, practice tests, online tutors to respond to questions and help you out with difficult problems etc, you are well equipped to score in the 90th percentile. You shouldn't miss it.
I am well equipped to succeed in my upcoming exam next month. At the moment, I comfortably score above 700.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course Live Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Ethan Todras-Whitehill

I cannot recommend Veritas prep and instructor Ethan Todras-Whitehill enough. I initially began studying for the GMAT in isolation and found it overwhelming. Learning in a class with other students and a fantastic teacher made a huge difference. Ethan knows the GMAT inside-out and has pulled off a small miracle by actually making it kinda fun to study for. (He also can recite entire scenes from 'The Princess Bride' from memory and make it relevant to a data sufficiency problem ... so honestly, what more convincing do ya need?) Start to finish, I boosted my score 130 points and broke into the 700s.

Do not be dissuaded by the online class format; I was skeptical at first, but Veritas has made the interface highly interactive and easy to use, and Ethan goes out of his way to get to know his students and keep them engaged. The study resources on the Veritas website are great – extensive problem sets, detailed answer explanations, multiple practice exams and tailored assessments of your content-area weaknesses and time management on exams. For something as high-stakes as the GMAT, a prep course is a very worthwhile investment, and you really cannot go wrong with Veritas and Ethan.

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

I am a non native English speaker. I got to know about egmat from my friend. Firstly, I registered for free session and later bought the complete course. Their audio visual style of teaching attracted me the most. Unlike reading books, this way of learning is very affective for registering the concepts in our minds. In SC, the step by step approach and POE techniques helped me in choosing the correct answers in less time. The process of pre thinking and negation test for identifying assumptions are the best ways to crack CR questions. And finally, Scholaranium is the best platform for practicing various difficult level questions. This is the best verbal online course.

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

Earlier, I had never opted for any online courses earlier, but had definitely used the online resources available like the 60 days preparing schedule given by Beat The GMAT (BTG), e-books from GMAT Club (GC), scavenged regularly on forums of BTG and GC etc. Armed with all the knowledge gathered from these site's i attempted my first GMAT. Unfortunately i was way below my target score. My main drawback was Verbal, as i am a non-native speaker, the score in verbal hit me hard. But i was determined to achieve my desired score,so i started my preparation again. This time i tweaked my approach, opted for an online course. After reading a lot of reviews in various forums, i decided to invest in E-GMAT's online verbal course.

I must say i have not regretted my decision of investing in E-GMAT's online verbal course. My learning curve has grown exponentially. Currently i am in midst of my preparation for my second attempt at GMAT. Now, i can say confidently EGMAT has enlightened me and infused me with confidence, to approach the SC and Logical reasoning questions more methodically to achieve success in solving them.

Scholarium of the EGMAT helps you to accustom yourself with the actual GMAT exam, helping you improve your performance by providing constant feedback on each of your attempts. Folks at EGMAT are constantly improving the application as, i have seen new questions being added, new learning methodologies being implemented and more e-learning videos being added to simply the learning process.

I would defiantly recommend EGMAT verbal course online to all non-native speaker's seeking help to improve their score.

Kudos to EGMAT team!!!

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.
