I had subscribed to Economist gmat tutor on 4th december 2013 after my 1st gmat attempt.I scored 570 in my first gmat attempt so i decided that i needed more practise.My verbal was weak so i started with economist gmat tutor.
It starts from basics and takes a student through various difficulty level.There are timed sessions and one can choose from quant and verbal lessons together or individually.The sessions are from 5 minutes to 1 hour.Then there is mobile app of economist which lets you do question on the go.The ask a tutor option is very helpful and the tutor replies to doubts within a day.There are 5 mock gmat exams and mentoring sessions with the tutor.My gmat score improved to 580 in the second attempt and 610 in the third attempt.I would recommend economist gmat tutor to all the non native english speakers who are appearing gmat.

I enjoyed the Economist GMAT Tutor Course, especially the online interaction of the program. The adaptability of the program is excellent, and it makes you work harder in tougher sections. Also, it completes all the topics for the GMAT and has plenty of practice questions for each section. However, at the end, when the program enters “Maintance Mode” I found myself redoing questions. Between verbal and quant, I think the Quant section is better, and more complete. While the Verbal section is good, it is easy to find a pattern in the Sentence Correction questions, and the difficulty level is low compared to the real GMAT. Also, for the Reading Comprehension Section you have the same passages over and over again with different questions, which makes it easier to try to guess the answer instead of rereading the passage. Overall, I thought the course was good with a huge questions bank, however it still needs some work to do and a lot to improve. Before taking the GMAT for the second time I thought I was going to improve at least 50 points, but I only improved 20.

I started my studies with the MGMAT books. After taking a few practice MGMAT and scoring 650/660s I was disappointed and chose to look for additional study products. I was comparing this to the other online offerings but chose it after testing it out and feeling comfortable with the guided learning. The continuous practice questions strengthened my foundation in the topics.

I found Verbal quite useful and the Quant a little less so. The quant wasn't bad but it didn't feel as thorough as MGMAT or better yet, GMAT Club forums.

If someone takes the course I recommend the following:

1) Take good notes during the lectures. Searching through was quite difficult and not an efficient use of time.
2) Only do practice verbal questions on a mobile device if you don't have pen and paper with you. I thought the mobile features were good but I realized quickly that I wasn't able to put in as much as with a PC or iPad & pen and paper.
3) When answering verbal questions go through each answer even if you are right. This will give you more bang for your time and understanding why an answer is wrong is just as valuable as understanding why one is right.

I found the ability to submit questions not that valuable and the video chats to also not be that valuable.

I would strongly encourage someone to use this as one resource along side MGMAT and/or GMAT Club. I waiting too long to start using the resources of GMAT Club (last 1-2 weeks).

Learning all the materials through the forum, especially for quant is important.

I already rated the Economist GMAT tutor in an earlier review that you can find back. I come back to add my score. It is an very good prep altogether, easy to use even if you are available at unpredictable times. For quant, it is an excellent base for someone who hasn't done maths for a very long time. I used some Manhattan GMAT material at the end, but not enough, and I did not improve very much in quant, I'd recommend to take this course as a good base because everything is very well explained and you can get in touch easily with the team, but to really ace the quant keep a good 3-4 weeks at the end to work with more advanced courses.

I am extremely satisfied with the Economist GMAT Tutor. I have taken the GMAT once and need some extra practice to improve my score, which I imagine will be very easy to do with the Economist's program (coupled with their impressive score guarantee). It is exact what I want with an online course. I can customize the exact amount of time I want to study with their timed session program. I also love their own version of the "computer adaptive" studying. The program is very good at pinpointing which aspects I need to work on and which I have mastered, all while ensuring that I get ample review of both. The tutor sessions that come with the program are nice as well. As I don't really have time to take a full course, organizing tutoring sessions around my schedule really helps. Lastly, I have to say one of the most impressive aspects of the Economist GMAT Tutor is the interface. I can track my progress, schedule tutoring sessions, or practice online with ease, all in an engaging manner. Studying everyday for hours on end can become tedious, but I find the Economist puts in the extra effort to make my studies engaging so that the program does not become stale. Overall, the Economist Tutor is an excellent program that is great for people who do not have the time to enroll in an online or classroom based course, but still wants a comprehensive, tailored studying experience.

I found the GMAT course to be very effective and accurate in predicting my score. I learned and retained much of the information and loved the computer adaptive approach to the course. At first, I was hesitant in choosing a fully online course but realized it was very convenient to use the app on the go. The lessons are very well presented and the practice exams predicted my real score with 100% accuracy. The tutors were knowledgeable and responded almost immediately to any concerns or questions I had. It is a great course to both review material and learn new material. I highly recommend this course.

I took one of the exams from the GMAT Prep Software before I started the program and scored 640 (I don't remember my quant score but I got a 32V and 6/8 in IR). After 9 CAT exams and 2 months training with the The Economist GMAT app I achieved 720 on my actual GMAT (49Q, 38V, 8/8 IR, 5.0/6 AWA). The app helped a lot with my Verbal skills, I even got a 42V on my CAT exams but had fever on the day of the exam and could barely finish it on the test day. I would also recommend the program for your essay (AWA) training. Whenever you submit an essay you'll a really harsh review as feedback but don't feel let down because I got a 3.0-3.5, 4.0-4.5 and even 2.5-3.0 and on my test I got 5.0. The essay reviews may not be realistic on the way they evaluate you but the way they teach how to write the AWA is pretty easy and intuitive. I did not use the app for my IR training, I didn't train for that but the Math training is pretty straight-forward and it's even more difficult than what you'll actually find on your test. Don't over-train yourself with other programs. I definitely recommend you this program. I took because I had not much choices living in Peru (South America for those who don't know it) and helped me a lot!

The course was very good. I enjoyed working on it. The “Ask a tutor” application was great and I used to ask questions all the time. All my questions were answered within 24 hrs. The content of the program closely reflected the GMAT. The tips and tricks they teach is indispensable.

The schedule a session with a teacher is a great feature. If you are lagging in a particular area, this is a very good feature to use. I had good sessions here. The application really drills down on the areas which you are not good at and repeatedly makes sure you get a concept right.

After an initial diagnostic with the GMAT Prep software, I scored a 680 (Q47/V35). I went ahead and purchased the usual prep materials - OG, Manhattan Guides, and went through just about all of it. Unfortunately, my scores did not improve much, fluctuating in the 670-700 range. At this point I had less than three weeks before the actual test. I purchased the Economist GMAT Tutor program to see what it could do. It has a ton of material, and forces you to methodically start with fundamentals, which was especially helpful for the Verbal section. The software comes with free essay scoring and skype sessions with instructors, which were also quite helpful. I scored 720 and 740 on the simulation tests in the week before, and ended up with a 720 (Q47/V42) on the actual GMAT. I highly recommend this software for students looking for a structured program that can guarantee large jumps in scores.

I took the Complete prep of the Economist GMAT Tutor around 10-11 days back and have completed somewhere around 40% of the material. This reveiw is based on the experience with the program until now.
Verbal:
1. RC - I didn't find the strategy for RC suitable for me and thus I have reverted back to age old strategy of reading the entire passage.
2. SC - The work order used is pretty good as until I can visualize application of work order in every question that has appreared until now.
3. CR - Not much has appeared under CR until now, but it is pretty much satisfactory.

Quant:
This section needs special appreciation as the way Quant has been taught is pretty good and is very logical. The level of questions is also pretty good and is getting better with every session.

I have asked around 10 doubts until now in Ask the Tutor and have received prompt and detailed replies. I haven't booked a skype session with any tutor until now, so cannot comment on the same.
