This review is for:   Optimus Prep Private Tutoring | Location:   Chicago-Financial District, IL USA  |
My tutor was a really big help for my entire GMAT preparation. He was patient and really focused. I could feel his passion for teaching and he told me that he stopped working in the consulting business because he prefers to teach young and eager students! We met in my apartment in Chicago. He was always on time and we were exchanging e-mails and text messages almost every day because he helped me with the included video course. What a great course these video lessons are!!! They cover all the stuff really from the beginning like for idiots.. ;-) I watched not all of the lessons because Daniel took a look on my diagnostic test and told me which exact videos I could skip. That helped a lot and made my 2 months of preparation more efficient as I did not lose time for concepts I was familiar with. The lessons with Daniel were really comprehensive and he showed me a lot of tricks how to avoid being trapped.

I achieved instant improvement in my practice tests and started to score around 700 after I took 5 tests. Since I am not a non-native the verbal section is my weak part. Math was Ok and I could study it with the video lessons by myself. Daniel and I spent most of our time improving my verbal skills, comparing all other course options I might have taken, his private tutoring was at the end the very best part of studying. Thanks again.

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Chicago-Financial District, IL USA  | Taught by:  Kevin Richardson
Veritas Prep was a great course but you will need a lot of practice at home on your own.

The instructor was very helpful.

Studying for the GMAT is intense, but the order and depth of the materials broke down the concepts into digestible segments. You could all but feel the building blocks stacking as you worked through the books. The syllabus was also a godsend. I thrive on structure and deadlines--free-form studying is not for me. The detailed syllabus kept me on task and progressing logically for months.

This review is for:   Manhattan GMAT 9-Session Prep Course | Location:   Chicago-Financial District, IL USA  | Taught by:  Viren Tellis
Going in, I knew very little about the GMAT and what to expect. This course did a great job of calibrating my expectations and showing me what I needed to focus on. This course also gave me the necessary books to study on my own adequately.

However, I must say that the course's tools are only helpful to the extent that you are willing to work hard. I attribute part of my score increase to Manhattan GMAT classes, part of it to the books I was given, and a large part to the fact that I studied 20 hours per week for 3 months.

Therefore, if you are willing to work hard, I definitely recommend Manhattan GMAT.

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Private Tutoring | Location:   Chicago-Financial District, IL USA  | Taught by:  Kevin Richardson
I recommend the tutoring service of Veritas Prep. I had Kevin Richardson as my tutor. With his help, I raised my GMAT score by 120 points within a month! I took the regular Veritas course about 1.5 years ago, but did not take the GMAT right after the course. After 1.5 years, my skills became rusty, and that resulted in a disappointing score. Kevin helped me by analyzing my skill-set and pointing out my fortes and my weaknesses.

He then customized his teaching methods per my needs and built up my confidence along the way. After being burned by the low score, it was important to have Kevin providing me with tips for each section and helping me to regain my confidence. His teaching is easy to understand and right to the point. For anyone considering a GMAT tutoring service, I would definitely recommend Kevin.

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Chicago-Financial District, IL USA  | Taught by:  Bill Robinson
Bill had a lot of great tips and tricks for the student to use and remember to help improve our score in both verbal and quant. The AWA sections are extremely easy after taking this course and following a simple layout.

The online quizzes and online feedback you get it amazing and really helps you to focus in on your areas of opportunity.

There are about 15 practice tests included with the program, 10 of which were old GMAT tests to help give you an extremely good estimate of your score when test day comes.

I would definitely recommend, you will not be disappointed!

I took the Veritas full course and loved it! Originally I chose Veritas because of the amount of classroom hours. I think that all of their materials were good and it was nice having so many practice problems. Also, since you are in the classroom for so long you actually learn the concepts tested in the quant section as opposed to just being able to locate the answer. The only problem that I had with the Veritas materials is that during the actual GMAT I saw a question format in the verbal section that I had not previously seen. Outside of that I was very happy with my experience and would recommend this course to everyone!!
