This review is for: Magoosh Premium | Location: Online

As a non-native looking to give the GMAT for the first time, I was on the lookout for an effective,affordable online course to help me cross the 700 barrier. The $99 Magoosh premium course seemed like a perfect fit, and after touching 720 on my first attempt, I am glad I picked the course.
The course is designed around a number of audio-visual lectures focusing on specific concepts and strategies required to master the nuances of the test. The question pool is also great for practice, and the questions are a decent approximation of the ones I eventually saw on the actual test. The video explanations for every question were concise and eye-opening.
The staff is helpful, and any query I had was addressed promptly via email. Also,the 3 month study schedule designed by the Magoosh team allowed me to streamline my studies.
Overall, I would highly recommend the Magoosh premium plan for its value for money, and especially to those who learn better using an audio-visual medium.

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ Optimus Prep Private Tutoring | Location: Online

Hello folks,

I would love to share my GMAT journey with you.

When I started I had a diagnostic test score of only 560 which was far away from my target score of 700+. I did intensive research and found that online private tutoring was the best for my needs because it was very personalized and flexible compared to traditional class courses.

The rate is higher though. However, I found Optimus Prep to offer online private tutoring to a very low price compared to the competition. First, I thought this is too good to be true but they also offer a free online trial hour.

I decided to test it and liked my tutor Jennifer from the beginning. She convinced me to sign up for the 34 hour package with a score guarantee.

The requirements are high but realistic. I had to finish all lessons with her, do the entire on demand course (which was included for free), take all practice tests.

I made fast and constant improvements after I started working with Jennifer. My practice test score improved tremendously and finally I began scoring around the 700 benchmark.

I gained enough confidence to go to test center. I was nervous although I knew that I am well prepared. I was able to score 710 and as a satisfied customer I highly consider taking their admissions consulting services as well...

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

After a very long search on Gmat forums, i've decided to purchase the E-gmat verbal live course. I have finished all the contents and i can ensure that E-gmat course is hands down the best of the best when it comes to the Verbal section, especially if you are a non-native like me.

With more than 36 live verbal classroom hours and more than 3500 practice questions at varying difficultly you are certainly going to get your monies worth (by the way their price offers are very very interesting too).

Their videos, articles, practices and detailed test taking tips (strategy sessions) will allow any test taker the opportunity to score in the 700's.

The instructors are not only accommodating and friendly, but experienced and very professional.

Overall, I am beyond glad I've chosen e-Gmat over their competitors. My practice scores have already increased Tremendously ; I have the utmost confidence I will do immensely better on the actual GMAT.

I would definitely recommend E-gmat courses to anyone interested in scoring high on Gmat exam.

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

HI

I am currently in the process of preparing for my GMAT and have enrolled in E-GMAT , verbal live course. I find the course to be highly effective for both native and non native speakers. The course has helped me great deal in diagnosing my weaknesses, having a structured approach to solving the Verbal questions be it Sentence correction,Critical reasoning or Reading Comprehension. I truly love the concept of diagnosis, then clarification of the concept file followed by a list of questions from OG as well as a test from e-GMAT and in the end the live online classes which take you through the concept once again and clarify your doubts. The instructor led class is truly wort every cent.This has indeed been one of my best choices I have made to prepare for my GMAT.

I would recommend e-GMAT course for all the MBA aspirants who want to score well in the GMAT.

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

The Quant course provided by the eGMAT is one of the best available and the most structured course available. It covers all the topics which were covered in official guide. The ease at which the concept is described in the topics gives clear understanding. The step by step approach explained in each topic gives you clear understanding.

They provide ample amount of question to test your concepts. Along with Gmat style question format with time bound keeps you in pace with time. I highly recommend to go for the Quant course provided by eGmat. Your money will not go in vain. All the best for your preparation.

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

I took my test on October 3, 2015 and scored 750 (Q50 V41) and am extremely thrilled with my score.
In my previous attempt on August 1 2015, I scored 690 (Q49 V34) and signed up for the Verbal Live Prep course with e-GMAT.

The course is very detailed and provides us with a framework to tackle all areas of the verbal section. During my previous attempt, I was never really confident while attempting the verbal section, especially CR. SC was one of my stronger areas, however, the VLP course at e-GMAT, with its emphasis on meaning analysis, ushered in a unique methodology to solve SC questions. This unique method of attempting SC questions not only reduced my error rate and time but also boosted my confidence when it came to the actual test. Believe it or not, I was actually able to 'pre-think' a potential answer for an incorrect sentence. The PoE (Process of Elimination) technique ensured that I thoroughly went over all the options and was confidently able to select the correct option and move on.

The pre-thinking step in CR, in my opinion, was a God-sent. Following the steps laid out in the videos and the application of the process taught by the faculty ensured that I was in the right frame of mind during the exam was able to turn one of my weaknesses into my strength. BF questions were always my Achilles heel, but after learning the process and applying the steps to solve these questions, I can vouch that the 2 BF questions that I got on my 2nd attempt were completed in about 3 mins and I hope that both were correct.

Initially, I had some reservations with the RC strategies and the process as I felt that I was getting most questions wrong and spending too much time on each passage. However, I persisted with the 7 strategies and applied them to all my RCs on the actual GMAT. The results are there for all to see. I am not sure whether I saved much time but I was able to use the PoE and arrive at the correct option in most cases.

Lastly, I'd like to commend the work that has been put into the Scholaranium tool. I used Scholaranium extensively for practice and honing my skills after each session. The questions were varied and unique. In sections such as RC and SC, I felt that the actual GMAT questions were a lot simpler than the ones that I practiced using Scholaranium.

A big thank you to the entire e-GMAT team for instilling the confidence in me and helping me get over that final hurdle. Also, a big shout out to the VLP faculty (Payal, Neeti, Krishna, and Shraddha) for explaining the concepts and demanding that we stick to the process in order to achieve our target scores. When I applied for this score, my expectations were to reach a score of 720 - 730 range. However, I have gone above and beyond those expectations and hope this score will yield calls from some top universities.

After struggling with verbal section for a while I bump into EGMAT course via their free webinar series. After buying VLP I was convinced to buy course on quantitative too.I am very happy to see my progress after EGMAT's training. The online course is a very detailed and focused on concept shaping. The course will help you to brush up all the basics needed for gmat prep. The emphasis in methodical step by step approach helps a lot in dealing with 700+ questions. The VLP webinars are focused more on sharpening the skills.I would strongly recommend to those who are struggling with 700+ questions in quant section. This course definitely deliver on its promise.

After struggling with verbal section for a while I bump into EGMAT course via their free webinar series. After listening the first lecture I decided to buy the full VLP module. I am very happy to see my progress after EGMAT's training. The online course is very detailed and focused on concept shaping. The emphasis in meaning understanding and prethinking has changed my way of lookig at SC and CR questions. The VLP webinars are focused more on sharpening the skills.I would strongly recommend EGMAT's VLP to non natives speakers who are struggling with verbal. This course definitely deliver on its promise.

This review is for: EMPOWERgmat Online Course | Location: Online

I stumbled upon empowergmat via their 5 days for 5$ event that they had back in June 2015 and wanted to try the course out as I was looking for study tips and tricks to improve from my 690 in my 2nd GMAT attempt. I wanted to reach 730+ but had already exhausted all the available resources. I enrolled myself for the 5$ event and I was surprised to see the the depth and clarity in their verbal video tutorials by Max and the follow up questions not only cemented what you learned in theory but also taught you about the common traps. After the first day itself I enrolled myself for 1 month and as they provide a month to month billing (highly transparent and helpful for short term commitment that I was looking for!), it proved to the boost that I needed to push my score from 690 to 750 in 1 month.

Max's appraoch to CR completely changed my thought process and it made me more confident of dealing with 700+ level questions. The SC approach was straightforward without the use of unnecessary grammatical jargons. RC was taught with an eye out for achieving maximum accuracy while not going abvoe the average time per question.

Rich's test it and triage approaches in quant not only helped me in undertsanding the various time saving strategies, these also helped me in understanding the mind of the test maker at GMAC.

All these strategies worked wonders for me in the actual GMAT and I was able to clearly see why the incorrect answers were incorrect. Once i had this undertsanding, i was more confident with my answers.

I would definitely recommend EMPOWERGMAT to retakers who are looking at a highly compressed preparation schedule that will give them amazing results.

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

Absolutely, Mr Lee's math revolution course is amazing. There is no doubt for me to recommend this course to the others. While preparing the GMAT, I was fully employed. It means that I had no time to review and recall the math what I had learned almost ten years. But Mr Lee's class always provided me the short and brief solution to solve the complicate Math problems. He always touched upon the core way of solving the problem, and provided the easiest and simplest way of it.
In real, I got 49 of 51 when I first took the GMAT and finally I got 51 out of 51 in my second exam.

I definitely say that he is the best teacher and mentor that I've ever met. Moreover, his personality is really kind.

So, I strongly recommend this course to you want to improve your GMAT score.
