About GMAT Amsterdam

GMAT Amsterdam is well known for years of GMAT experience. We have helped hundreds of students and professionals with different backgrounds to achieve the GMAT score they need. The GMAT is not just about your mathematical skills or your level of English. It mainly focuses on reasoning skills. Therefore, our courses are designed to make you understand the logic behind GMAT problems.

Everyone studying for the GMAT needs to achieve a different GMAT score, based on the minimum score required by the school they’re applying to. Our courses provide you with all the necessary information and tools to help you prepare for the GMAT in the most efficient way. The Quantitative and Verbal section are equally important, therefore we strongly advise you to follow both courses.

Livestream for Quantitative and Verbal course 

The GMAT Amsterdam online course is a livestream into a classroom course. This provides the convenience to watch our course from any location you like, whether it’s your workplace, your home, or anywhere else. It saves you travel time and expenses, and provides you with extra flexibility if needed. The course materials will be sent to your home address before the start of the course.

To ensure your experience is optimal, three important aspects of our classroom lesson are available at home: a videofeed of the teacher in the classroom, a digital transmission of our smartboard, and of course the voice of the teacher. The videofeed of the teacher and the smartboard transmission are presented in a split-screen view.

Through a chatroom in the streaming software you’re able to ask questions to the teacher about the materials. This is different from an in-person interaction with a teacher. The reduced feeling of interaction with a teacher that some people experience, should be decreased by the fact that classroom students will ask questions to the teacher. So even though you’re not able to ask questions in person yourself, you’re still taking benefit from the classroom participants’ questions.

We offer the following courses online:

Full digital Bootcamp (using ZOOM software)

During the coronavirus COVID-19 period of social distancing and reduced movement, we have created an online version of our Bootcamp using Zoom.

Zoom software facilitates good interaction with the teacher, and allows for screensharing to elaborate on questions from participants and explanations from the teacher. To ensure the high pace and high intensity standard of the Bootcamp remains part of the experience, the number of participants will be limited.

Further, we’ve based the digital Bootcamp program on the tried and tested Bootcamp program from the face-to-face classes.

The Quantitative course gives you a complete overview of the theory and question types that you need to know. The course also provides you with lots of tips, tricks and short-cuts, which will help you achieve the score you need, 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 Online Bootcamp is a 8 day, 24-hour course consisting of 6 sessions days of quantitative training and 2 sessions of verbal training. This course aims to further enhance your skills and optimally prepare you for your test day, within the short time available before deadlines.
