I took the GMAT 4 times! Yes, as you already guessed I tried several companies before I found out about Optimus. The video content was great. It provided a comprehensive explanation of the concepts. Although I knew some of the concepts, the course added value to my knowledge base. The course included both on the demand feature and online tutoring. What I liked the most about the course is how the lessons were organized. Instead of focusing on the verbal or the Quant. Each lesson is a mix of both. I got a chance to practice and apply what I learned after each lesson by taking quizzes.
I worked with Jennifer. She was amazing. She communicated the core strategies required to handle questions and addressed my concerns by providing additional materials that helped me improve. I felt that I was working with a friend rather than a tutor. She continuously asked about my performance and provided weekly feedback on ways that I can improve. Working with Optimus, I was able to achieve my target score. I increased my score by 70 points.
Because of the valuable experience I had, I decided to work with Optimus again by utilizing the consultant services. Janielle helped me develop, organize, and connect my ideas. We worked on the outline together. She also provided instant feedback and suggested ways to improve my essay.

I decided to use Optimus Prep for my preparation because of a recommendation. My first score in the GMATPrep software was a devastating 490 (without any practice).
The included on demand course is a useful tool to learn the basic principles for both the verbal and quant section.
The private lessons with the tutor are the best part of the package. My tutor Jennifer is a patient and experienced teacher who manages to easily teach even the advanced topics of the GMAT.
Furthermore the customer support was very well. You will get an answer to every question.
Unfortunately I didn't reach the 700 (caused by my performance on the verbal part). But I got a full refund because of the score guarantee. If you plan to take this package you should keep in mind that there are several requirements for the refund (it requires hard work, but that is justified in my opinion).
In conclusion, I can fully recommend the Optimus Prep Private Tutoring Online if you are reaching for the 700+!

How I cracked the 700 score with online tutoring October 11 | 2015 1 out of 1 people found the following review helpful

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...

I opted for the online private tutoring package from Optimus Prep. I loved the personalized approach and all the interactive material that comes along with the package! For me, this is what really set it apart from other packages from similar companies. If only I had found Optimus Prep first, I could have saved so much time, energy, and mostly money! They offer practice tests and questions that can be sorted by type of question within the verbal or the quantitative sections, and the difficulty level at the same time. For example, I was having a really hard time with parallel structure, especially at the 700+ level. There is so much going on in the sentences at that point that I was getting lost in all of the false clues. My tutor helped me recognize this problem, and we sorted out questions and practiced together until I could recognize it in my sleep. This alone improved my verbal score by a huge percentage!

I finally scored a 720 after starting from 600. Thank you for your help

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

I decided the private online tutoring was the best for me because I was having so much trouble with the bland textbook approach.

I’ve always been the type of learner that does best when someone is interacting with me, and I got exactly what I needed from Optimus Prep. The tutor was patient and knowledgeable, and definitely knew the GMAT inside and out.

We used the diagnostic tests that were adaptive, just like the real GMAT, to find my problem areas and gauge my improvement. I took the lesser package with 8 tests, and there were enough, but I would’ve still liked to have done a few more, but just for confidence-building really. There were also video lessons included on specific topics, all sorted out by verbal/quant, general topics and specific questions types. I watched them in my downtime between lessons with the tutor and they were a serious help in addition to the private lessons. I don’t have anything negative to say about the experience at all; I loved the adaptive approach that was always forming to fit my specific needs, and I wouldn’t change anything about my choice of purchase in the end.

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ Optimus Prep Private Tutoring | Location: Shanghai, China | Taught by: Brajesh

I signed up for lessons private tutoring with Optimus, after falling short of the 700 mark in my 2nd attempt. I picked Optimus solely because of the top reviews on GMATClub.

Through a couple sessions, my instructor was unable to work through and struggled with the same problems that I had trouble with. At the end, I had to ask for an instructor switch as I did not feel the instructor can help me get through the 700 mark. The new instructor was much better in terms of teaching and sharing tips on breaking through the 700+ mark.

While my experience with Optimus wasn’t too satisfactory, I believe it is a separate incident, and it still could be a decent option.

Brajesh is an excellent teacher and was able to help me with my weakest sections, Quant and Sentence Correction. This was the first time I've taken the GMAT and I was able to score a 710 which is well within my target range. Based on the practice test I took, I would estimate that my score improvement was around the 60+ range. He was very patient with me and has an extremely good command of all subjects tested on the GMAT.

Would definitely recommend again for those first time writers looking to achieve their goals or for someone would like to improve their scores by a meaningful margin.

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

First, I was not happy of paying about $2,000 for my GMAT prep. This is a lot of money and before researching the test prep rates I was not aware that this is such an expensive service…

Optimus Prep convinced me not only due to their lower rates but also due to the fact that they were the only company that offered a free trial hour. In the trial hour I discussed a GMAT concept of my choice with the tutor and was convinced that they can be of value for me.
The lessons took place online twice a week and I loved my tutor. She was very good at explaining complicated concepts in an easy way. The on demand course assisted me during my studies perfectly as I was able to practice exactly my weaknesses with the customized GMAT quizzes. I took 5 full GMAT practice tests and my tutor adjusted the study plan after each of them. It was really organized and I was lead through the lessons by my tutor.
Overall, the course was great and I scored 20 points above my target score of 650 (compared to my diagnostic test results of 560!)
I can recommend Optimus Prep to all gmatclub users and urge them to simply take the free and non-committal online trial hour to avoid any bad surprises. This is a fair offer!

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

I was looking for a private tutoring option in order to prepare for the GMAT and had come across various online tutoring options which seemed too expensive without any convincing performance record of their students. I was looking for an economic package and some best in class tutors to coach me and prepare for the test and that is when I came across Optimus Prep whose past record showed than most of their course participants had improved their scores by 110 points. They offered a lot of private tutoring packages at economic prices to choose from and I enrolled in their 12 hour private tutoring package.

I loved the structured way in which my tutors planned my GMAT prep, the first thing they made me do was to take a diagnostic test after which they designed a study plan for me based on my test performance. Optimus tutors themselves come across as GMAT experts, they share a lot of best practices and different test strategies. My tutors had scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT and so were the scores of all other tutors at Optimus.

Learning from them already feels like studying in one of the premier business schools. Discussing doubts with tutors, following the study plan custom designed for me, taking diagnostic tests gave me a great training ground to prepare for the test and I finally scored 700 in the final test. I recommend Optimus Prep for all those aspirants, especially who are confused about what needs to be fixed in order to beat the GMAT.

The best thing about Optimus Prep is that they take the ownership of improving your scores at the test and that is clear with the way their most sorted out faculties who themselves have scored at the 99th percentile in the final test give individualized attention to the students. Their simulation tests are awesome and instil a lot of confidence in the test takers who see their scores improve after each session.

My tutor laid out a customized study plan for me based on my performance on their computer adaptive diagnostic test and the prime focus of my prep strategies was first to focus on my weaker arrears gradually moving towards the other test sections. I finally scored 670 on GMAT and can confidently say that it is imperative for one to seek an expert guidance while preparing for this world’s most prestigious test and Optimus Prep is definitely one such guide.

would you say their CAT tests are pretty accurate? Also, how many of their CATs did you take before attempting the GMAT?
