Is appalled by all the marketing gimmicks of all the above coaching centers to dupe vulnerable students . Will give a frank opinion from a students perspective, who has taken both the services e-gmat and crackverbal .

E-gmat ...completely useless if u are looking to improve verbal . After u pay the fees u get access to some random videos uploaded, each explaining some basic concepts . The thing is these concepts are pretty basic and can be found online in Manhattan's Thursdays with Ron series (they are pretty amazing and honest do check them .) for free !! . They have very minimal questions to practice from.... a very big disadvantage , since without practice no point in cramming in concepts .
Although after going through their explanations given for various questions on gmatclub I was impressed by them but thats it ..... dnt expect much from their paid services .Pluss they dont have any tests of their own , then no way to test urself .


Crack verbal ..... Ohh boy !! where do i begin .... i have attended their classes ....complete trickery or rather sophistry is the right word i believe.
During the free intro classes they discuss very complex examples which make u believe that ur sooper dumb and then once when u enroll u realise that they dont have much to offer , probably the introductory class was the best class in the entire course . THeir claims of sending people to LBS, Stanford and others Ivys are of people who already had a stellar profile and just needed a touch up on their essays . Dont be fooled by the fancy website . their material is very basic and not much informative . No test series of their own again ! ...... the thing is they claim to teach u shortcuts fr RCs and CRs . The ugly truth is there are no shortcuts . U cant game the exam , no matter what they say . U have to improve ur English !! ...period . which takes time .

So what should one do !! ....... practice practice and practice by urself from as many books as u can.Buy Kaplan Manhattan and different books see the questions and learn from them . Because take it from me in writing there are no tricks or shortcuts for verbal . U have to read dense material and improve ur English and simultaneously practise. Watch Manhattans Thursdays with Rons they are a pot of gold ! when it comes to building concepts....

Do lsat verbal questions for more practice . Atleast RC and CR can be covered . Pluss LSAT has pretty decent questions . Read Opinion pages of nytimes , guardian et al . Daily practise quant fro 1-2 hr and verbal for 1 hr . Use the gmat prep tests very wisely . They are the closest u will get to giving the real gmat exam . Manhattan's 6 gmat test are also good but wayy tougher than the real exam . Do give them . Also search for solutions for each and every OG question in google . ROns explanation on their blog r pretty accurate .
The gmat exam also is evolving the old tricks which these coaching centers purport to teach no longer apply . Take it from a guy who gave gmat twice .

WHO AM i to give this advice?? --- a guy who gave GMAT twice -- 1st attempt - 700
2nd attempt - 720

Got in two Colleges with 50% fellowship . DOnt believe me go ahead waste 20k or more on these coaching guys . ALL the Best bro !! :)

I have not been active on Gmatclub - something I hope to change soon :-D

I just wanted to let you know that I am active on Pagalguy and here are some reviews from my students:
http://www.pagalguy.com/forum/gmat-and- ... alore.html

Please note that these are not people with 1 posts (essentially ids formed 1 day before the post) nor are they hearsay (I heard is good kinds).

Having said that remember a few things before choosing any GMAT Prep course:

1) Make sure you attend atleast 1 demo class. It is not a question of money alone but your precious time. You don't want to end up spending weeks in a coaching which is not adding value. The faculty should have taken GMAT and should speak sense (which you can figure out after a 3-4 hour class).

2) Ensure that the reasons for joining a GMAT prep course are right. IMO there are 3 reasons for anyone to do it (a) teach you stuff you cannot learn from a book (b) ensure you are on the straight and narrow (c) support you right till the day of your test. If even one of these are not met then its not worth your time.

3) Talk to other students while you are taking the demo class (assuming this is a live course and others have paid up). Sometimes talking to them can give you a good perspective of what to expect. And what not to :)

That is my $0.02 about it!

Arun

Hi macjas, ok..time for some GMAT CR (Critical Reasoning):

Your stimulus says:

Premise: I tried one local GMAT coaching class about six months ago and felt it was useless.

Conclusion: If you're really bent on coaching I would suggest going for some reputed online course.

What is the assumption?

Answer: The only correct choice has to be: GMAT coaching class are useless:).

p.s. See what being a GMAT faculty has done to me :wink: .


funny... I won't say that coaching classes are useless ..but I will prefer an online course because it can be highly customized

I was a student of Sandeep Gupta. I scored a 760( 1st attempt). Please don't pass any kind of a judgement hastily.
I also read your other post in which you criticized Crack Verbal. No trainer or coaching institute, be it Sandeep Gupta or Crack Verbal, will be of any help if the student fails to put in the required effort.

I'm from Mumbai and I tried one local GMAT coaching class about six months ago and felt it was useless. I paid 25k INR and pretty much quit after two weeks or so. (Also work pressures built up and I had to postpone my GMAT study plans to May anyway but this is besides the point) .If you're really bent on coaching I would suggest going for some reputed online course such as Manhattan GMAT, Magoosh, GMAT Pill, Knewton, and Kaplan. Plus at GMAT Club you will get all the self/peer coaching that you'll need!

Hi macjas, now a days, many coaching centers offer money-back guarantee, in case students feel short charged in any way. So, that would at least take care of the 25k cost that you mention in your post.

However, more than the cost, it is the time and the opportunity that is of essence to students and so, performing some due diligence (such as attending Demo class, conversing with students of the institute etc.) generally helps. I am sure you did your homework too, and am sorry it did not work out for you.

However, I am a part of a training center and with due respect, take exception to your purported extrapolation that GMAT coaching classes are "useless".

If you read my post carefully, I suggest that the one specific class that I enrolled in was useless. I wasn't talking about ALL coaching classes. I apologize if it seemed to you that I was attacking all coaching classes.
