Course e-GMAT GMAT Online

Location Online

I purchased e-GMAT online course and went through its quant section. I completed about 75% of the quant course before I tried my hands on Scholaranium (e-GMAT's quizzing platform). I got most of the medium and easy questions correct but I couldn't do the hard and very hard ones. From what I read, to get over the 700 mark, I need to get hard questions correct most of the time and because I struggled with most hard questions I decided to switch to another quant prep course. I am not saying that e-GMAT quant course is bad. I felt like the course assumes that you already know the basic quantitative principles (which I almost completely forgot since high school) and go onto more complicated questions relatively quickly. I believe that many people will find it useful if they are already scoring in the Q45+ range.
Although I didn't finish its quant course, I still think that e-GMAT's verbal course was well worth the time and money. Its course structure was very easy to follow and I like how the course separates the OG questions into sub-sections (e.g. Modifiers, S/V for SC, Strengthen, Weaken for CR). With this structure, you can go through each sub-section and see which ones you struggle with. This will allow you to later target those weaknesses and improve on it. Since I scored 90th percentile on RC in my diagnostic, I didn't focus as much on RC as SC and CR. For CR, I believe that the pre-thinking approach is very helpful since it will allow you to have an answer in mind and all you need is to find it in the answer choices. For SC, the application files and concept files in e-GMAT are very helpful because they contain detailed explanation and they teach you how to approach each question. I finished the SC and CR modules in e-GMAT and improve my skills through scholaranium.

Course Target Test Prep Dedicated Study

Location Online

Because quant was my weakness, I need to find a quant course that teaches me the ins-and-outs of GMAT quant and will help me build the foundation for me to solve harder questions. After reading multiple reviews on quant courses, I settled with Target Test Prep because of its price and user-friendly interface. The course is quite lengthy with a lot of material and practice quizzes but it was well worth the time and money. In a test where timing is critical, being able to find more efficient ways to solve the questions is one of the key skills you need to score high on quant. TTP is incredible at this with its equation cheat-sheet and certain techniques to solve certain types of problems. All of its quizzes are designed to make you effortlessly solve quant questions on test-day. After I finish TTP's course, I scored Q48+ on all but one of my mock tests and eventually a Q49 on my actual GMAT. Personally, I think this is by far the best quant course out there. I highly recommend this course if you want to score Q48+. It's a shame that TTP does not offer a verbal course.
