Online education and training was an alien concept till about 10 years or so, but today it is the ‘’in’’ thing so to say.
Everywhere over the Internet there are advertisements trying to lure students to pursue some or the other course online.
GMAT is one of the most popular courses when it comes to online training/coaching.
In this article I will tell you 5 insane things about GMAT preparation online which are not common but are important to know.
1. It is not as easy as it appears
All the success stories of improving your scores from a mere 200 to 700+ are very rare, and there are more stories of failure than success for GMAT.
You should not get influenced by these projections and claims, and more importantly should not underestimate the efforts required to clear GMAT.
Sure, these stories are inspiring, but are very rare and require efforts more than just taking a few months’ online course.
2. Unlimited resource availability
Internet gives you access to unlimited questions, solutions and material for online preparation.
It doesn’t matter from which site you have taken the online course; you can always bank on other free sources of preparation material.
Any online course will give you a limited set of questions but that shouldn't stop you from going that extra mile in your preparation and exploring other possibilities.
3. Alerts apps and access
In addition to the regular email updates, these days there are many mobile applications that will help you in your GMAT preparation.
Whether android, iPhone or any other smart phone there are tons of applications for improving vocabulary and mathematical formulae.
Most of these applications are free, and there are some which will give you free access if you enroll with any particular website.
4. Access to the best in the world, distance not a problem
With the advent of e-learning, distance and nationality are no longer hurdles in getting quality and world class training.
From anywhere in the world you can get training from the best of the universities and institutes without having to worry about visas, costs and travelling.
There are many international training institutes that provide courses online and you can get trained from the best of the best right in your room.
5. Online preparation better than classroom coaching!
This is rather debatable, but in my experience I can assure you that online training has a few advantages that give you an edge over students who take a regular classroom course.
First - online training of GMAT gives you ample of time to spend in front of the computer screen and gets you habituated to sitting in one place without losing your concentration.
This is the most important aspect of any computer based test.
And second - it allows you to practice and compare your score with students not just from your locality of country but from around the world.
It presents a better comparative score than a class room training module.
