GMAT Test Prep

Overall, the GMAT course was very advantageous and helped me to have a better start with GMAT preparation.The Online (BlackBoard) sessions were better than I initially expected. Obviously, the "in-person" experience would be my preference, but given the current pandemic situation, the Blackboard Ultra platform provides a viable option for student learning. Our instructor was very effective and interacted with the students as much as possible. Hopefully, when the pandemic is resolved, the course will be further enhanced by “in person” experiences.
