False statements by Knewton, typo or another gimmick?

See below:


From the link below Knewton shows a comparison between different courses.
https://www.knewton.com/gmat/

It clearly shows that Veritas is offering more Live teaching hours

But if you check another link from Knewton, it says that they offer more live teaching than Veritas Prep

Could someone justify it, or am I reading it wrong?


Thanks,

Hi Piyush,

Thanks for pointing that out! The text below the chart is incorrect; the comparison chart (which you can see again if you scroll up from the sentence you circled) rightly states that Veritas Prep's course has 6 more hours than Knewton's does. The statement in the copy was reversed accidentally when the page was created, and we're fixing it now.

Again, we appreciate the heads up. The intention of the chart was to give students an accurate assessment of different courses on the market - even if Knewton doesn't win in every category!

Best,

Chris

Chris,

The cart looks good, but the sentence is yet to be updated.

Hi Piyush,

The page update just went out. We removed the sentence in question, so the copy should match the chart now.

Thanks again for looking out,

Chris

yep,

it is corrected now
Knewton offers 2-4 weekly live office hours; Veritas Prep does not offer office hours

@piyushk,
certainly, you have got very sharp eyes :) Knewton guys are genuinely humble and honest. Don't make their life hard ;)
