# BASIC MATH COURSE

## Basic math course

The Basic Math course is designed to improve the mathematical skills of test takers without a strong quantitative background. During the GMAT, you will not be allowed to use a calculator on some sections. This means you will have to do all calculations by hand.

If it has been a while since you took your last math classes or you just want to make sure your skills are sufficient before starting the Quantitative course, then this is the perfect course for you. Basic Math is a fully digital course, offered on our online platform. It is accessible 24/7 to minimize the loss of time before startingĀ the Quantitative course.
