I have used Kaplan 5 tests that came along with Kaplan Premier 2015. Kaplan team seem to have significant experience with the test and weren't afraid to point out areas that they thought Kaplan put too much or too little weight on compared to the actual test. The quants parts are pretty much the same as given in GMATPreps tests but I think Kaplan's verbal questions are way harder than GMATPrep's, which are the real exam questions. Based on my experiences, my Kaplan scores were right in the middle of what I actually scored on the exam. So, from an overall score perspective, I feel like they are dead on. Also want to note, that I feel like Kaplan's exams were the most similar to the real GMAT!
Veritas On demand course is structured in a way that best suitable for those students who want to study at their own pace and wants to dedicate more time to sections with which they are struggling with. Very extensive, the course is specially designed to build student concepts from basics-to-advance level. You will get everything in this course, tips, tricks and strategies. Their live instructor for homework help works very well as the instructor helps the student to know his/her mistakes and weak points. The program was structured very well with extensive material. Their principle "Learning by Doing" is crucial that emphasis Practice, Practice and Practice. Though, i didn't score well on the gmat and that was totally my mistake..i found that this course is good enough that one can score 650-680 very easily. The best part of Veritas is their Tests...I found them very close to Real Gmat tests. The tricks that Brian and David taught are helpful and memorable. I am again going for GMAT test to score 700+ and i am sure Veritas will again help me to boost my score.
The center was good and peaceful but it wasn't comfortable. i started feeling pain in my neck as i have to bend more to see computer screen. The chair wasn't comfortable. Their must be partition between any two students so one cant get disturbed while other person is typing. Moreover, whenever new student came in the other students get disturbed. The number of seats must increases, the partition of student is must and GMAT & GRE students must have separate rooms for their tests. So please, try to make it as comfortable as possible as i am planning for re-attempt and thinking of the same center is giving me nightmares.
ManhattanPrep is awesome...i am non-native English speaker and believe me SC and RC were something like nightmares for me. Then i purchased used Manhattanprep book for SC and believe me my score in SC starts improving to a level that now i am ranked in top ten at gmatclub. when i started gmat, i though i wont be able to do it and thus i couldnt score much on my test. but then i bought this book and now i have been scoring 650+. My verbal score has actually put a great impact on my overall score. I, once, wrote to Stacey and she helped me. Moreover, Ron, the guru of gmat, has helped me alot via his free videos (thursday with ron). I will definitely recommend this course to everyone and i am totally confident that this time i can score 700+. Thanks Manhattan
If you want to get Q51 and verbal 40+ in your real test then gmatclub tests are more than enough. Gmatclub quant section is designed so well that it helps to build you quantitative advance level. I have seen that almost every quant question test more than one concepts/area of math in a single question. The verbal part is way too good. RC passages are tough and dense and helps build your reading skills. CR and Sc questions are very close to real exam questions. Once you will be done with gmatclub tests you will realize that you dont need any other tests
Veritas tests are awesome. They offer thousands of realistic questions that have been validated using Item Response Theory and a powerful computer adaptive testing algorithm that closely matches that of the real exam. I have attempted real gmat exam and i can see that their quant section is very much similar to real exam. Not too tough but tricky. Their verbal section is also good especially Cr and Rc. I will highly recommend these tests. try at least one mock each week and revise mistakes. If you are scoring 750 then it is most likely that your real exam score will range from 710 to 770. I have tried other tests too, but i found these very helpful
