Hi Gobi, can you tell us about your preparation before enrolling for Quant Live Prep?
For my first attempt, I signed up for a Bangalore based test prep company and studied for more than 7 months. However, I ended up with a 530 (Q40, V23).
What aspects do you think went wrong with your preparation for the first attempt?
Firstly, the concepts were not taught properly. Even basic concepts were ignored and focus was maintained only on solving complex problems. Moreover, they taught shortcuts for each problem and so there was no consistent approach. At the end, I realized that I didn’t learn anything substantial.
From your experience, can you tell us the extent to which the shortcut approaches worked?
I realized that shortcuts do not help in learning the concepts. Moreover, the shortcuts taught to me worked only on some select problems. Eventually, I ended up scoring a Q40 on the actual GMAT since I couldn’t answer most of the questions.
How did you find Quant Live Prep?
For my second attempt, I was initially enrolled for Verbal Live Prep and saw a significant improvement in my Verbal accuracy. So, I decided to invest in e-GMAT for my Quant preparation and bought their Quant Live Prep course. I soon realized that this has been the best investment I have made so far in my life.
How was your experience using Quant Live Prep?
I have been out of college for almost 7-8 years now, so my quant is quite rusty. QLP course was very helpful to teach me all math concepts required for GMAT exam. I digested all the concepts very clearly and had a standard approach for each question type. Even though it took little longer to apply the standard approach for each problem, it helped me improve my accuracy significantly.
Thank you Gobi. Would you like to add anything for your fellow test takers?
After learning the concepts taught in the course, practice using the processes prescribed in the course and you’re sure to get a Q50 or Q51. In my case, after using this course for around 3 months, I scored a Q50 in my second attempt – a whopping 10-point improvement in Quant.
That’s wonderful to hear, Gobi. Good luck for your future endeavors
Thank you team e-GMAT.
