The entire class is delivered online. The GMAT course covers the Math,
Verbal, Integrated Reasoning, and Analytical Writing sections 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. You will learn easy-to-use strategies to
tackle each question format. 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.
