Reviews: 6 | Average Rating: 100% | Average Score Improvement: 80 points
Price: Free - $719 after GMAT Club Discount + Free Access to GMAT Club Tests ($250 value)

Strengths:
1. Full free video course – the only one online
2. Unique technology that learns how you think and what is the best way for you to solve every question
3. 70-point improvement guarantee
4. 4 CAT's included
5. Unlimited support and access to tutors

Well I just happen to visit ExamPAL through GMAT Club.
They are offering entire course videos for free.
You just pay if you take tests or tutoring. You can watch all concept videos without paying a single dollar.
I was moved by the way they have built the User Interface and their lucid explanations of concepts.
It would not be fair to compare this course with other players but this one surely wins if you consider the entire course FREE.
And the best part is I am just enjoying the preparation flow with them.
Thank you very much for making those awesome study videos available for free ExamPAL. I just thought i owe you at least a reference.

Please do help me to take decision on selecting BEST GMAT Verbal & Quant course. I got confused as everyone praising about their course eg e-gmat says they are best, math revolution GMAT says that they are leader in Quant etc etc. I need genuine guidance. My background is as below
Profession: Engineer
Quant competency: 7/10
Verbal competency: 5/10 (RC is problematic area)

What do you think about Manhattan Elite Prep courses? I am going to take an intensive course in Dresden Germany in November.


I don't know much about them besides that it is an off-shot from the original Manhattan Review - one of their execs left and started this company. I have hard absolutely nothing good or bad about their instruction or materials they use. Would be curious to hear your thoughts and feedback.


From 2015 to 2018, I tutored for this firm out of Amsterdam, and I was called upon several times to tutor online for their UK and Germany-based students. I did a fine job, of course, but always wrestled with an inexplicable degree of initial resistance. It was good for me, but one day in 2018 I heard from my student - now a friend - that she had enrolled in an-person course with Manhattan, only to be informed - first in the fine print, and then verbally after payment - that too few people had signed up, and we would like to offer you an equivalent number of hours in private tutoring online? This offer was take-it-or-leave-it.

At the moment - and speaking as one of the firms active in Amsterdam - I can attest that there are only three firms offering an in-person class or tutoring service in this city. They are, in order of appearance, Mindful GMAT, GMAT Amsterdam, and me, the Gmat Dojo. I reference a LinkedIn post wherein you can track student feedback about companies that do this scam and the cities in which it's active. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/7430594/7430594-6440885732193116162.

And I invite you to know my own thoughts about choosing an online course: https://www.gmat.amsterdam/gmat_secrets_of_success/what-makes-a-good-online-gmat-course.

Kind Regards, and Success,
Omer

Hi bb,

I request for some assistance...

Magoosh: Somehow seems too cheap, but gives 2 CATs. Is this missing something that the others are offering?
GMAT-Pill: Only 1 CAT is an issue when compared with the other offers
Economist: Yes, very expensive. But is it offering something (features, content, etc.) much greater than the others?
Optimus: Seems the best in terms of pricing considering the number of questions and CATs, but very less reviews to read. Seems very few people have taken this course. Is this course missing some aspects apart from the GUI you mention?


Thanks & Regards,
Gaurav Bansal.

Hello Gaurav.

I happen to have been Optimus' first teacher. In 2013 they had just opened in Berlin. They were at that time searching for a curriculum designer, but we did not manage to reach acceptable terms. Though I tutored for them there for some months, the materials were restricted to Official Guide only.


Kind Regards, and Success!
Omer

Hi
I have given GMAT 3 times. 17th Sep 2017 680 (V32,Q50), 4th August 2018 690(V37,Q48), 15th September 2018 650((V31, Q48) canceled this score). After my 1st GMAT I tried to improve my SC by taking egmat SC only course. There was improvement in verbal but quant took hit in 2nd attempt because of last 3 question being wrong. I am unable to comprehend what happened with my third attempt. I am beginning to think that may be verbal score never improved and verbal score in 2nd attempt was an aberration. My mock scores(GMAT Default, EP1, EP2) have been consistently above 720. I am targeting score of 740. I am confused between empowergmat and egmat course. Any help in this regard would be appreciated greatly.

Hi kewldudeer,

I suggest that you start by posting your story (overall study timeline, when you plan to apply for School, etc.) in the Shared Experience Forum here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/share-gmat-experience-8/

That way, there can be a broader discussion focused on your studies and goals. I'll be happy to answer any questions that you have and offer you the personal advice that you're looking for (you can also feel free to PM or email me directly if you prefer).

Hi mission2016,

Just wanted to point out that while GMAT Pill offers 1 CAT, the CAT exam can b taken up to 5 times. So that means it's 1 large pool of questions - and many of your questions will be different the second time, although there is a possibility of seeing a question you've seen in the prior test.

That said, focus on which program or approach will help you improve the most and get the highest scores. Any "features" or bells and whistles are just bells and whistles. They are useless if they don't actually help you do well on the exam.

So make sure you prioritize what's actually important -- a pretty interface or a solidified thought process and mental thinking that will get you through the the GMAT and the rest of your life.

Hi Pitabdhi

To start, you will likely receive more of a response if you start a new post-thread (instead of piggy-backing on this one). Click the orange "New Topic" button that's above the forum and post whatever questions you might have. It would also help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi,

I completed the basic Kaplan prep that comes with the book and a few online CATs. I was scoring in the mid to high 600s and recently took the gmat. I scored in the mid 600s mainly due to running out of time. I could use the most work in verbal (usually scoring 38-40) and just need a few point boost on quant (usually scoring 45-48). I don't think I need any tutoring I just need a little more practice and maybe better ways to analyze the questions. I think I have the online courses narrowed down to the Veritas online Prep and the E-Gmat prep. Does anybody have any thoughts on these or better recommendations. I would like to not spend over $700.

Thanks,

Clinton

Hi Clinton

To start, a mid-600s GMAT Score is a solid performance (it's right around the 75th-80th percentile overall), so it could be enough to get you into your first-choice School. You would likely receive more of a response to your post if you start a new post-thread (instead of piggy-backing on this one). Click the orange "New Topic" button that's above the forum and post whatever questions you might have. It would also help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) How did you score on the Official GMAT (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Guys, I'm going from post to post while looking for a course for GMAT retake (600 V28, G44). It looks like some courses help more with verbal while others - with quant. I feel I need to strength and build confidence in both. What option would be the most balanced for this? Thank you (sorry if this is not a proper place to ask)

Hi,

For verbal in my opinion E-GMAT is a very good course though it takes some time to finish the course but its worth every penny and for quant Target Test Prep is by far the best quant course available out in the market. You should take advantage of their trial and decide whether these courses suits you or not.

Now, I'm targeting at least 650, to apply for a PhD, knowing that English is my second language
Do you suggest a specific GMAT material?
Thanks

Hello,
I am looking to start an on-demand prep course. Any thoughts on ExamPAL? Seems like a decent price for the number of test questions and CATs, but there aren't very many reviews. I am comparing this to Manhattan Prep / Veritas on-demand courses, which seem to have the complete package but are nearly double the price.
Thanks!

Hi Red5ive,

When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are a variety of different options. Most GMAT Companies offer some type of free materials (practice problems, Trial Accounts, videos, etc.) that you can use to 'test out' a product before you buy it. We have a variety of those resources at our website (www.empowergmat.com). I suggest that you take advantage of all of them then choose the one that best matches your personality, timeline and budget.

If you have any additional questions, then you can feel free to contact me directly.
