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!

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

I have greatly benefitted from the e-gmat quant live course. Below are some of the features of the course which I particularly liked -

1. The course is very well structured and divided into modules by subject area. You can learn them at your own pace - suits me particularly given my work schedule.

2. Each course has a quiz at the beginning and at the end. They are timed quizzes (similar to Scholaranium) - which helped me a great deal in building pace/stamina for the main exam.

3. Lots of practice problems ... I don't think you need any additional practice. The part that helped me most is there are a lot of higher difficulty 'intimidating' problems with very detailed explanations.

4. Although I come from an engineering background, I am not good at probability and permutation combination. This course simplifies the concept - and teaches very simple methods to solve those problems

5. Live Sessions - I think this is the one of best features.I went through the recordings for the live sessions and the problems solved in those sessions helped me to increase my score level.

6. Last but not the least is amazing customer support :)

Kudos to Rajat, Payal and team for putting the course together!

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

When I first took a Manhattan Prep practice test, I got a 59% on the quant and a 710 overall score. I soon started using the Economist's app, and I loved it!! I only used it for Quant, but I saw that it made a huge difference. Super easy to use and it guides you at your own pace through all the material you'll need to know. I highly recommend this website for anyone who wants to up their Quant game on the exam. My score jumped to 770, and I didn't use any other resources at all. Only negative to the Economist app is that it seems like in order to schedule your "private tutoring" lessons, you have to reserve the time well in advance, even specifying what topic area you'll want to cover. Since I only had a month to study, this didn't make sense for me and I wasn't able to utilize that part of the package.

Can't Go Wrong - Use Veritas Prep October 14 | 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

I was a bit overwhelmed at first. There are so many companies to choose from and so many different types of classes. But, after reading countless reviews and after seeing how professional the website was, I decided to use Veritas Prep. It was a great decision - you can't go wrong!

After deciding to use Veritas, I had to pick the type of class. I wanted to do a full length course, but the only class that fit my schedule was the live-online class. I am very much an in-person kind of student, so I was very weary of spending a good bit of money on an online course. But, again, after reading countless great reviews about the class (specifically those about master teacher Ravi Sreerama), I decided to try it out. Again great decision!

The online class is easy to use, is of great quality, and is very interactive. Ravi is an amazing teacher. He makes some of the most difficult concepts easy to understand and he personally pushes each and every student to do the best they can do. You can re watch classes that you missed or want to better understand, and you can also access a bunch of other useful resources like practice problems, skill builders, pre recorded videos, live homework help, all sorts of thing.. Its a great program.

The one thing I will say is that I found the practice problems and practice test to be significantly harder than the real deal. I think it was good because it better prepares you for test day, but don't sweat it if you feel like you're not doing as well as you should be. I would highly recommend downloading official GMAC practice tests and doing as many as you can along with the Veritas Prep tests. I found the GMAC tests to be very representative of the real GMAT, and I consistently scored 100 points higher than I did on the Veritas tests.

Anyways, with that said, I highly recommend Veritas Prep and Ravi Sreerama. I thought so highly of it that I decided to hire Veritas as my Admissions Consultant. We'll find out how that goes, but I have no doubt.

Best of Luck!

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

I bought the GMAT on demand course by Optimus Prep.

It has the following features:

- thousands of questions
- explanations for all of them
- customized quizzes
- video lessons
- practice tests
- optional: private tutoring

I found the quality to be very good and the layout was very easy to understand. The video lessons covered everything relevant and I also had 12 hours with a tutor who was a true master in his field.

The included score guarantee of 50 points gave me extra confidence and I liked the analytic features very much because I was able to observe my progress easily.

I found a few spelling mistakes in the software which is actually one of the very few weaknesses I was able to find.

The price of only \$299 (with discount code) is reasonable and actually even cheap compared to competitors.

That is def. a strong buy recommendation...
