#### GMAT courses

Everyone studying for the GMAT needs to achieve their best possible GMAT score, keeping in mind the minimum score required by the school they’re applying to. This score is based on both the Quantitative section and the Verbal section of the GMAT. We therefore recommend taking both a Quantitative course and a Verbal course.

The Quantitative course provides the basic knowledge of the GMAT math topics. Usually practising the topics discussed should be sufficient to achieve a 550 **–** 600 score, provided you have a matching verbal result and spent enough time studying by yourself.

The Verbal course helps understand the various verbal topics, and apply tricks and strategies to the various questions. lt also provides great insight into the various types of answer options to the questions asked during the GMAT. This course is a great time-saver, but a bare necessity for some.

The GMAT Bootcamp is a 4 day, 28-hour course consisting of 3 days of quantitative training and 1 day of verbal training. This course aims to optimally prepare you for your GMAT, within the short time available before deadlines.

This online version of our courses could be a great solution if you would like to follow a course, but are unable to come to our course locations. The courses are live streamed and adapted to online users, to make sure that you will get an interactive and useful experience.

#### Additional courses

Before starting your GMAT studies, it makes sense to learn more about the test you’re going to take. During the 2 hour free introduction class, the ins and outs of the GMAT will be explained, and a first elaboration on the most important subjects will be made.

Depending on your situation, you may like some additional help. If you’re not that good at basic math, you could participate in our Basic Math course. This course can be taken either before or during your Quant course, and will help you solve quant problems quicker.

If you are facing very specific problems with a certain topic, are very ambitious about your score, and if you are on a very specific time schedule, a personal trainer may be your best solution. Check out our 1-on-1 tutoring options.

#### Quantitative course

In 5 sessions of 4 hours, the GMAT Quantitative Course covers all the relevant topics you need to know for this section of the GMAT. You will learn the necessary tools for solving arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis problems in the two main GMAT quant question types: Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency.

An experienced teacher will explain all the theory in a clear and structured way and guide you through corresponding practice exercises of various difficulties. In addition, you will be taught strategies, tricks and shortcuts to increase your answering efficiency, as well as time management.

The groups are small, ensuring all the personal attention you need. The interactive character of the groups gives you the opportunity to freely discuss problems and ask lots of questions.

The course includes teaching materials, extensive homework instructions and clear guidance for self-study after the course. It is our goal to offer you the best GMAT Quant preparation, teach you the quickest solving method for each type of question and help you achieve your highest possible Quant score.

If you have a weaker mathematical background or haven’t had maths in a long time, it might be useful to follow the Basic Math course first in order to be well prepared. Click here for more information or contact us for free advice.
