When I first started my GMAT journey, I assumed that it wouldn't be hard at all or similar to the SAT where I can do my best and just do well enough to be accepted. I was so mistaken. I opened up my GMAT book infrequently, pretended like I could make myself study when in reality, I'd go home and not do anything. Kaplan's Live Online course was the best thing to happen to me. Although pricey, it's on the lower end of most of the great study programs. Every week for 6 weeks I'd sit myself down in front of my laptop and listen and participate while the instructor was live on the screen. He was able to answer questions immediately if anyone had any or clarify any points that I may have missed or was unclear to everyone. It was a busy 6 weeks for me. Kaplan also has a GMAT channel with both pre-recorded lessons and live ones that you can take outside of your scheduled live classes. Lastly, Kaplan has the Qbank with thousands of questions for you to work through and get feedback on. I retook the GMAT the following monday after my last class (Kaplan advises you to take it at least 3 weeks out to soak in the lessons; I scheduled the exam before finding this out) and scored a 560. That's a 110 point jump from my previous 450! Now, this score may not get into a lot of the higher rated business schools, but remember that I scored that against the advice of Kaplan. Had I waited an extra 3 weeks, it's possible I could've scored even higher. I 100% recommend this to anyone who needs to have a live instructor but cannot travel or afford to have an in person class.

The Kaplan Live-Online GMAT course was incredible helpful for my test-taking experience. Going in, I knew very little about the GMAT itself and had not taken a standardized test or a math class of any sort in years. The teachers are very helpful and skilled at teaching ways to attack the test. They have an array of great tips that make the experience quicker and easier and will help you pick up some of your older/lost skills. I don't generally write reviews for anything, but this course was really really useful and well worth the time and money.

First off, I can't thank Kaplan enough for their thorough and well taught courses. I learned a lot of great testing skills and tricks to help me through the GMAT. But what really blew me away was the customer service. Because of an injury, I was unable to take the GMAT when I had originally planned and rescheduled the test for February 2015. I called the customer service team a few days after my course access had "expired" and explained my situation and asked if I could use my Better Score Guarantee. They were incredibly accommodating and allowed me to re-register for another class. I was given access to every practice test and problem set that I needed to succeed. I cannot thank Kaplan enough for their professionalism and help.
