First, I had a trial hour with my tutor Jennifer.

She was very professional and replied to all my questions. We discussed my prep strategy and created an individual study plan.

I purchased the package and got access to the GMAT On Demand Course. I watched all videos as discussed with Jennifer and arranged new lessons with here.

I made fast progress and took several GMAT practice tests. First, I scored around 550 but steadily improved to 650+.

I continued to do homework assignments and quizzest o practice my weakness areas. The last lessons were the most important and I eliminated my last weaknesses.

My practice test score started to be around 700 and I continued practing as many questions as I could.

Finally on test day I was very nervous. First, I had the impression I am not doing very well but with the time I became more confident.

When I saw my score after the test, I was extremely happy! 700 Points on my first attempt...

Thank you so much Jennifer.

I am the happiest guy in the world. I really made it, I really scored 700 points on the actual GMAT.

I took a long way and a lot of studying but it was worth the price.

I studies really hard and not only with Optimus Prep's course but also with the official guy and I read a lot of magazines to improve my RC abilities.

The on demand course was good because of the videos and the thousands of questions. the formula library gave me a great overview and the homework assignments were pretty effective.

I took all 9 practice tests to be eligible for the 50 pts. score improvement guarantee.

My first score was only 500 (what a shame) but I raised my score over the time...

Before test day I was scoring between 670-710 in my tests and I knew it was time for the test center.

The course helped me a lot and I can honestly recommend it to anyone who is willing to work hard

I signed up for this company because of the many positive reviews on gmatclub and beatthegmat.

The other main reason was the hourly rate of only $80-100 and I liked the free online trial hour.

This gave me the chance to meet my tutor Janielle for free and without any risks. I liked the strategy session and we agreed to get started for 23 hours.

First we focused on my verbal weaknesses and the last 8 hours we spent for quant. I was a lot better with quant. in my diagnostic test that is why this decision was very wise.

I improved a lot compared to my diagnostic test result over the time. The GMAT On Demand Course was included in the package and I used it to practice questions and read through the explanations.

I am very happy that I scored 720 on test day...Now I am one step closer to my target b-schools in the US or UK.

I made a good decision in buying this course.

for only 300 bucks I have access to many video lessons. They are simply great and it is as if a tutor is explaining you all formulas and how to solve each single question type. the assignments help to practice. the quizzes also help a lot to practice and the full GMAT simulations are very realistic and give you the test day experience.

i liked the formula library because it gives you and overview of everything at one glimpse.

i was also satisfied with the service of Optimus Prep. They reply fast and are reliable.

I would buy this course again and you recommend you to do the same. for this price you will get a very good product.

I took Optimus Prep's 34 hour online tutoring package and prepared for the GMAT for the last 4 months.

To make a long story short, I scored finally a 710...

When I started i scored 550 in a diagnostic test. This huge improvement was due to my great tutor Brajesh who helped me to learn many valuable techniques and tricks. i had more difficulties in verbal than in quant because of my engineering background.

Especially RC was hard but finally i was able to score well.

I can recommend Brajesh to you and the GMAT on-demand course was also perfect for self-studying. Especially the videos are straight to the point and comprehensive.

I had a free online trial hour which helped a lot. I am not sure if i had signed up without it. It was great to see that they really give me the chance to test my tutor before committing myself.

Finally, everything went well...

I can say that I was more than happy with my choice. The videos are very comprehensive and helpful. They gave me a basic knowledge of the material and the practice questions were great for practicing.

I used the quizzes a lot to focus on some question types. The GMAT practice tests (9 are included) also were good because they gave me an idea of my current score (at least an estimation).

The Integrated Reasoning section was also covered. AWA was not which is the only negative thing i can say about this course.

Guys, you should take this course, it is a good and serious company with fast service and fair offers...

Folks, I want to share my story with you.

I scored 560 after visiting a class course of Kaplan.

It was OK but not worth the money because I did not improve as much as expected.

I studied a bit with books on my own but then a friend of mine recommended Optimus Prep to me.

I bought the on-demand course and started preparing on my iPad.

the course was great and all features are powerful. many questions, I believe a few thousand. good explanations, outstanding video lessons, practice tests and good customer care.

Really...i can recommend this course and it helped me a lot to improve by more than 100 points over a period of only 3 months.

thumbs up Optimus Prep!

Hi folks...

I can really recommend Optimus Prep with their very LOW rates compared to other test prep companies.

At first I was really suspicious about their offer because I never heard of them and they claim to have 99th percentile tutors but charge about just 50% of other companies such as Veritas or Manhattan.

What I liked a lot was their free online trial hour which is something that other companies do not offer...

I arranged it and was impressed by my tutor. I wanted to see the score report and saw it - 770 points...Wow

Now I was interested if she is only a great test taker or also a great tutor. She is both...

We discussed a few things during the trial hour and I immediately signed up for the 34 hour package in which i paid only 80 bucks per hour...

veriats and manhattan charge for the same kind of service $200 or more per hour.

I am not sure who can afford something like this except Oligarchs or Sheikhs ;-)

Anyway, we started my prep and I also had access to their GMAT On Demand Course which was very cool as well...

Before I signed up for Optimus Prep I took a class course of Kaplan and scored with a lot of preparation just 600 points.

After I was done with Jennifer, I scored a 710 in the test center...JACKPOT...

I am happy that I took Optimus Prep and really can tell you to do the same. At least you can try without any risks their online trial hour and make a decision after it.

Good luck for all who read this review with their own GMAT

I was very happy with my choice. Optimus Prep offers a good course with many cool features. The system really applied to my knowledge level which was simply great.

it became easier when I made many errors and became harder when I answered many questions correctly in a row...This saved a lot of time...

Also, I liked the detailed video lessons. They covered everything and the lesson notes and formulas helped me a lot to get a structure in my studying.

The practice tests were a bit too easy. My score was higher than on test day which is somehow the only thing worth to criticize...

I would immediately purchase this course again...

Hi folks,

I took the 34 hour package of private tutoring from Optimus Prep.

I liked my tutor Brajesh very much. He visited me in my apartment in Manhattan and we were a good match and team right from the beginning.

I took several other test prep courses before and scored a 570 with a lot of work which was very frustrating... With Brajesh I developed a game plan and strategy and sticked to the plan which was the difference between success and failure.

Really...go for the private tutoring even if it is more expensive than some traditional courses. The GMAT is very hard and super important. do not save at the wrong place and keep in mind that the on demand course is included for free in private tutoring packages from Optimus Prep.

I scored 700 points last week thanks to this extensive training program!
