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!

e-gmat quant live - Very well structured course October 15 | 2015

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...

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

I started my GMAT preparation at the start of July with OG, GMAT PREP & MANHATTAN books. Using OG I pointed out my strengths (PS) & weaknesses (SC & CR). In DS & RC I was moderate. So, I went through MANHATTAN books for SC, CR & RC & things did not change significantly. My target score was 700 & GMAT PREP gave me only 630-640. So at the end of July I started reading blogs at GMAT CLUB how to improve. Then I came to know about Aristotle Prep books & ordered them in Amazon. While they took nearly a month to deliver, I continued my research & found out about e-gmat. I joined them immediately on 23rd August in VERBAL ONLINE after using their free trial SC files. First I went for SC & immediately my confidence was boosted. They has made the basics of GMAT English really easy to digest. One more thing needed to be specially mentioned about their SC files is meaning analysis. If you don’t follow that rigorously you are bound to lose some points in SC. Then I went for CR. Their pre-thinking approach first seemed hectic but you’ll have the effects in exam. Then I started using scholarium, a great tool to gauge your progress. I also upgraded to VERBAL LIVE later but did not use that rigorously as the basics were there in VERBAL ONLINE. At the end of September I gave two GMAT PREP exams & it was 700 & 710. So I went for exam on 29th September & voila it was 740. So I will strongly suggest e-gmat to the non-natives. If you don’t have the time to read this long story use the take-away.
Take-away-
1. Make your basics right. E-gmat has made basics super easy to digest
2. Use pre-thinking approach to solve CR
3. Use meaning analysis for SC otherwise you’ll surely loose some points.
4. Use scholarium to measure your progress.
One more thing I’ll add here e-gmat’s support team. They will answer your query as fast as possible. So if verbal is your weakness in GMAT trust e-gmat.

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

His teaching method is really really intuitive and straightforward that everyone who fininshed his degree in undergrad can easily follow it. In the beginning stage when I started GMAT, I had no clue how to start and approach. But Mr. Lee online course was the very go to lecture to me. His unique approach to solving math problem set saves a lot of time and helps me develop strategy for time management in the real GMAT exam. In the end, I took GMAT test more than 3 times but my math score never fell down below 49 thanks to Mr. Lee’s lecture so that I was able to solely focus on verbal part. Thus, I strongly recommend this course. Thank you Mr. Lee.
