Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) Preparation Course --ONLINE COURSE

The Live-Online GMAT Prep course is the same great program as the traditional GMAT Prep class, delivered online. Our virtual classroom provides you with the opportunity to interact in real-time with our expert instructors and provide the added benefit of watching class recordings at your convenience for up to 30 days after the course ends. The GMAT course covers both Math and Verbal sections. The Verbal section covers each of the four (4) components-essay, reading comprehension, sentence correction, critical reasoning-that comprise the Verbal portion of the GMAT. By combining the visual, auditory, and tactile learning strategies used by adults, the course offers participants the opportunity to dissect each component of the GMAT and identify the factors, patterns, and strategies required to achieve a high score on the questions in that component. In-class exercises are provided so that course participants can move from theory to practice and enhance their capabilities. There are no grades given during the course and homework is recommended but not required. The "final grade" in the course is the participant's numerical performance on the GMAT. The GMAT Math section is a comprehensive math review of Arithmetic, Algebra, and Geometry. Examples in each difficulty level will be provided. One full session practicing Data Sufficiency problems will be offered the last class. You will learn easy-to-use strategies to tackle the trick questions. Strategies for working problems without a calculator and strategies for using your answer choices to solve the problem will be emphasized. Word problems will be continuously discussed throughout the course. An in-depth look will be taken with the statistics topics.
