Once I was done with the self-study using standard books, I switched over to the on-demand sessions that are available online. I did some analysis by comparing feedback from forums and features and prices from the websites. My weakness was mostly on the verbal section, as is common for most non-native speakers, and I felt Optimus Prep would suit my needs for mainly this reason and also for breaking the barrier on price.
The online sessions are presented by three expert tutors for each field, each of whom is a 99%iler and a celebrity in the world of GMAT about creme de la creme. In the 30 extremely informative sessions they basically went through each page in the manual, covered the underlying concepts and explained how to work through each problem, quant and verbal. Even though I had answered most of the questions correctly, watching how they attacked each problem was a real eye opener.

Manhattan, Veritas, Princeton, Knewton and Kaplan - the five corners of the star known as GMAT Prep did not realize that another entrant was gearing up to shake things.
After each session, there are sets of additional problems to be done on your own. The student has unlimited access to the content, which is surprisingly refreshing, compared to the big 5. The icing on the cake is access to 8 complete GMAT CATs. Add to it the score improvement or money back policy, and you have a clear winner. No wonder this course has been rated as the best in GMATClub, whose discount reduces the price of this course to an extremely competitive $299, whereas the other prep companies charge in the range of $350 to $1150 for a similar product.
The downloadable course material is a compendium of the necessary Quant & Verbal topics. This covers all the basics pretty well, and has loads of practice questions after every sub topic, which works great. I hate reading piles and piles of material before being able to apply it, so this was a treat. After every few pages, there's a drill consisting of several questions. This format meant that I breezed through the material and finished it in no time. The book covered RC really well, nothing too detailed, just the essentials, and in just the right dose. I had been out of school for several years, but after a few hours into the sessions I felt as if I was back to those good old days.
I had been studying for some other office related courses too, and I know the feeling of studying non-stop. Sometimes it felt like my head was about to explode. The GMAT on demand courses really helped. Optimus Prep has great strategies and study tips that can help you optimize your studying time.

The GMAT score, while only one part of business school admissions application, can be the difference between getting accepted or rejected at your first-choice school. I suggest you think carefully regarding the implications of choosing the wrong prep course. I can absolutely recommend Optimus Prep on demand videos. They did great for me, if you consider 740 a good score!

Can you please expand on your experiences with verbal lessons?

Being non-native, I want to inquire about the verbal content only.

How are the mocks they offer compared to real thing?

How much was the score improvement?

Plz suggest
