hi,

i wanna share my experiences about optimus prep.

They are a very good company. Their customer care was very helpful and fast and their services are fairly priced.

I signed up for 34 hours of online tutoring which i never regretted.

My tutor Jennifer was very qualified. To be honest, first I had kind of a problem to get tutored by a woman but I immediately recognized during the trial hour that she is a GMAT guru.

She helped me by getting structure in my studies. Before I studied simply all concepts without a logic but with her it became much more efficient.

She showed how to work with the included GMAT on demand course. It was very helpful due to the analytics software and video lessons. 5,000 questions were a great help and I answered almost all of them ;-)

I really felt how i became better and better and it was backed by my practice test results...

I am very happy and satisfied ;-)

What I liked:

+ Very comprehensive
+ many videos
+ thousands questions
+ explanations
+ practice tests
+ optional: tutoring for fair rates
+ 99th percentile experts
+ good customer care

What I did not like:

- I found a few spelling mistakes in the questions
- the on demand course silver package has no tutoring included (would be great but is available at extra costs)
- my practice tests results were too good and I was not that good on test day

Summary: Very great course for self-studying. It is fairly priced and gives you access to a lot of material. You can study at your own pace and are not depended on a schedule. It helped me a lot and I improved steadily with this software.

I am sure I would have improved even more if I had the money for the online tutoring options. My verbal was the problem but I am sure if I have 15 hours tutoring I would improve with it...Nevertheless the course is worth its money!

Hello,

I wanted to share my positive experience with Optimus Prep.

After a free trial hour I signed up for the 34 hour package. The rate of Optimus Prep is much lower than other gmatclub companies and I was able to get a free trial before signing up which i think is really fair...

My tutor was very friendly and professional. He has a lot of experience and taught me to think like the test maker.

Many concepts were explained in the included on demand course which was really helpful.

The practice tests were also great because I was able to see how good I am. I took 10 or so before going to the test center.

The staff of optimus prep replied always very quickly and I had absolutely no problems with them.

Thumbs up!

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ On Demand Course

I took the Optimus Prep course in last week of March, mainly because of positive reviews, affordability and 50 Point increase guarantee

since this was my second attempt at GMAT, I knew the concepts but was lacking a structure to my studies. I started practicing seriously with questions from question bank. After 3 weeks I gave a mock CAT and saw my score jump 50 points to 730 (I used to previously plateau at 680). I continued practicing and giving mocks for another 2 weeks and finally gave GMAT on 1st may 2016 and scored a 750 (Q51,V39, IR 8).

I felt that their verbal and quant was very similar to GMAT. And the huge question bank was a plus as I didn't want to run out of questions (especially 700+ level questions).

Best thing is that the website works great on mobile as well. I used to solve questions on mobile while traveling for work .
Thought I observed one or two glitches here and there, but overall their interface is great.

Here is the link to my debrief, hoping that it helps someone.

There are no superlatives that do justice to Jennifer's hard work, dedication and patience. Having taken the test on the last occasion I actually went backwards and scored a disappointing 540. During our initial session I took a diagnostic test which identified my strengths and weaknesses and we worked through a prescribed course of action to plug in any gaps of knowledge I had. Jennifer was excellent in particular at articulating errors I had previously made within sentence correction sections and helped me improve this section of my verbal. In addition we focused on common errors in reading comprehension that I had been making and soon my verbal score had improved.

In the quants section Jennifer was excellent at enabling me to better organise my thinking around some of the more difficult data sufficiency questions and on geometry where I was struggling.

Thankyou agan.

I recently purchased the GMAT On Demand Course from Optimus Prep and was invited to write a review about it.

Overall, I liked the course very much because I could prepare from home. This gave me a lot of flexibility because I was not committed to any given schedule and could study from my iPad on the go.

The videos were helpful and it has many many questions with explanations. Practice tests are included as well and gave me a relatively good estimate of my current knowledge level.

The videos covered all concepts in an easy way and were comprehensive. I liked the assignments after each video lesson because it practiced the exact same concepts from the lesson.

The course has a lot of material (based on their website it takes 180 hours to finish everything) and is priced $499 ($200 discount is available though).

I had another course before I tried Optimus Prep and I did not like my first course too much. I do not want to name the company but the rate was even lower than Optimus Prep but the quality was def. worse.

I give Optimus Prep 5 stars....

I was very happy with the GMAT on demand course because of its many cool features. it has

- video lessons
- many questions with detailed solutions
- quizzes
- practice tests
- concept library
- adaptive system
- analytics

It gives you the chance to prepare from home and you can follow your own speed and are not depended from a schedule like in class courses for example.

very good and recommendable for a fair price. The only contra point I was able to find are a few spelling mistakes which is nothing serious in my mind if you consider that the course has thousands of questions.

The Optimus Prep online course is an incredibly user friendly program which helps you grasp most of the essential concepts needed for the GMAT.

The online course has extensive material for the quantitative, verbal and integrated reasoning. The website and videos are very well made and user friendly. It's easy to navigate each video, skip a section if you like to and find a specific concept.
It's also easy to review your progress as you go along and you get benchmark "trophies" as you go along when you complete a specific number of questions.
Furthermore, there are multiple CAT test which you can try out which resemble a GMAT test.

Overall, I found the online course from Optimus to be extremely helpful. Especially in terms of value, the Optimus prep online course is second to none. The course material is very well made and you get extensive, user friendly material which should help you on your way to achieve a good score on the GMAT.

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.

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ Private Tutoring

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+!
