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.

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+!

I was really happy with my decision to buy this course. It has everything that I needed to prepare for the GMAT.

Videos

They were comprehensive and easy to follow. The example questions were great and after each lesson there were assignments

Quizzes

Great way to practice certain question types because the quizzes were customized.

Practice Tests

Very good to see the current knowledge level. I took more than 10 during my prep and would say this is the most important aspect of the entire studying process

Knowledge base

An overview of all GMAT concepts - here you can see all content at once and get back to helpful notes if you want to recall something

Private tutoring

I took the platinum package with 12 hours of online private tutoring included. It was great to discuss my questions with George, my tutor. He was really helpful and showed me valuable techniques how to overcome some of my weaknesses.

Overall, I am very happy with the course and was able to improve my initial diagnostic test score from 570 to 710 in the real GMAT!

the only thing this profile has done is written review, possibly an indicator that it is fake.

The course is comprehensive and gives you all the tools you need to prepare for the GMAT.

I found the videos to be easy to follow and the respective assignments were very helpful. I loved the included custom quizzes. I had a tutor who discussed with me all questions during online lessons. The practice tests were realistic and gave me an estimated GMAT score. i did not take all of them but they were still great for observing your progress.

The online tutoring lessons that were included in the platinum version were arranged on a flexible basis. My tutor showed my some great techniques for timing and eliminating.

Overall, I give this course 5 of 5 stars...

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ Private Tutoring
Location: Shanghai, China
Taught by: Brajesh

I signed up for lessons private tutoring with Optimus, after falling short of the 700 mark in my 2nd attempt. I picked Optimus solely because of the top reviews on GMATClub.

Through a couple sessions, my instructor was unable to work through and struggled with the same problems that I had trouble with. At the end, I had to ask for an instructor switch as I did not feel the instructor can help me get through the 700 mark. The new instructor was much better in terms of teaching and sharing tips on breaking through the 700+ mark.

While my experience with Optimus wasn’t too satisfactory, I believe it is a separate incident, and it still could be a decent option.

Brajesh is an excellent teacher and was able to help me with my weakest sections, Quant and Sentence Correction. This was the first time I've taken the GMAT and I was able to score a 710 which is well within my target range. Based on the practice test I took, I would estimate that my score improvement was around the 60+ range. He was very patient with me and has an extremely good command of all subjects tested on the GMAT.

Would definitely recommend again for those first time writers looking to achieve their goals or for someone would like to improve their scores by a meaningful margin.

I recently took the Optimus On-demand GMAT prep course. I thought that overall the course was a pretty good value. I'd recommend it highly based off of the incredible low cost of the product. I think it only wound up being $99 for me to sign up.

I think that the main value I got out of the optimus product was with the notes that accompanied each lesson. i felt that these alone were worth well over $100. They shortened what otherwise would've been a very cumbersome process for me to do, especially on the math section. I felt that the quantitative lessons were much more useful than the verbal, but that is only my perspective.

Overall I felt that optimus was a really good value for what you pay. I'd highly recommend it for anyone looking to prep on a budget.

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ Quant Booster
Location: Online

After having worked for nearly 6 years I was toying with the idea to earn an executive MBA degree from a great business school. I had joined a BPO soon after completing my graduation and reached a decent position in mid-level management role however at the same time I had started feeling stagnated and wanted to take up a challenge to transform me professionally and personally. Without wasting time I started to prepare for GMAT, I made a self-study schedule focused on improving my math and verbal skills along with reading a lot of books to help me improve my reading speed along with taking a series of practice tests. I was consistently able to score above 40 in simulation tests, a score which was relatively higher than that of quant section where I scored below 35. I started devoting additional time in preparing for the quant section but did not see any remarkable improvement and that is when I decided to take the On Demand GMAT Quant booster from Optimus. It was a true value for money and included 5,000 questions and detailed explanations covering all quantitative question types, Video lessons explaining all quantitative concepts, gave me unlimited opportunities to create and do as many customised adaptive GMAT quizzes as I wanted and this subsequently helped me practice hard ultimately helping me improve my scores to 45+. I could access the course features at any point of time on my smart phone or tablet and hence could manage my time most efficiently. I scored 720 on GMAT and it wouldn’t have been possible without the Optimus Quant booster.

I heard great feedback about Optimus test prep from one of my friends in the U.S while I was preparing for the GMAT test and was looking for a private tutoring option. There is a wide range of options offered by Optimus depending upon one’s needs. They offer private tutoring packages starting from an hour to 34 hours and are fairly priced between $120 and $3060. I enrolled in the 12 hours package and benefited a great deal by increasing my scores by 70 points.
They have an amazing faculty who make the GMAT prep a memorable and interesting experience. The faculties take the ownership of improving your scores and that’s why they even offer a 100% score improvement guarantee, which means that Optimus will refund all your money if there isn’t any improvement.

I had started scoring above 660 before joining Optimus and firmly believed that there is no way that I would not see a constant improvement if I practice diligently on my own for the test but soon I discovered that I was wrong. My scores had table landed and would not move. My score graph had become stagnant and I didn’t know what to do next. Then after much research I took the private tutoring package from Optimus. My learning process started as soon as I started to attend their online classes. It is highly commendable to see the way their trainers extend individualised attention to its students, they identify the strengths and opportunity areas of students and provide effective coaching and counselling on how to improve on them. Their folks demonstrate immense knowledge and command over the subject matter which shows in the way which they custom design the course for each of their students depending upon their ability.

I scored 730 in GMAT and am highly appreciative of Optimus. They are the veterans in GMAT prep.

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ Verbal Booster

Having persistent weaknesses with the verbal part of the GMAT, I was excited to find out that Optimus Prep offers such a course. It was exactly what I was looking for because the quantitative test part was easy for me. I scored in all of my practice tests at least 49 in the quantitative part but always below 30 in the verbal. I tried out other courses but was not satisfied with the results…


After a trial period I upgraded the course and paid with Paypal. I watched the videos and made use of the numerous practice questions. I liked that the course was analyzing my results and I could see how much I improve.


I became better and better slowly and after studying for about 2 months with the help of the verbal booster I set up a test date in Mumbai.


I scored exactly 700 points and was very satisfied with my result! This booster is a very nice tool for your studying
