I am, and very much enjoying it though it's bit early to know how much of an impact it will have on my scoring.

They are very good and have been excellent at answering my questions too. The programme is very interesting.

Not a good idea to go on the advice of people who have had only 10 messages on this board. Dont you think its a bit suspicious that those people decided to reply this thread?

I have used GMAT Tutor. You can pm me for details.
A good question also deserves a Thanks.

How can I verify my subscription to the Economist GMAT on this forum?



As to why I replied on the thread... well I have registered on this site a while ago now but only started to participate recently. I only used to read through the information. Now that I am asking questions, I think it only fair I also try to help where I can. This surely is the essence of such a community, and the aim, surely, is to create an atmosphere of support and motivation. Gotta start somewhere.

Of course, I can see your allegation that I may be favourably 'marketing' a course. So let's get verified.

Edit - Ok, I looked at the Write a review section. I'm not far enough into the course to make a full review, as I said before. I will do this later, when I have taken my test. For now this screen cap should help...?

Edit - 26/08 - I have now removed the attachment from public display. I can pm instead if you prefer.

Hi Busytrying,

I just wanted to chime in and let you know that as long as you've purchased and are using the program, you can write a review (I believe). I see that Beat the GMAT is offering a $10 Amazon gift card per review, and Economist GMAT Tutor is offering an additional $25 on top of that. When your review is published, just send the link to [email protected], and we'll email you a gift card as soon as we verify that you are an Economist GMAT student. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Elizabeth

Thanks Elizabeth

I'll be very happy to review once I've gone through more of the course and fully used the resources, so it's a well rounded review.

I've spent some time using the Economist GMAT Tutor, and I recommend it. The course is interactive, so it requires your active involvement in learning. You can't skip ahead, but have to complete the earlier material before proceeding to more advanced concepts. I'd say it's ideal for someone who has 2-3 months to study. I took one of the full length practice exams and thought the questions were realistic.

I wrote a longer review here:
