So, how does The Economist GMAT Preparation fare?The best way to know whether or not a course or a program is good is to ask those who have used it. In today’s times, a course or a module is essentially a commodity that can be rated out ten or five or can be awarded stars. However, even though reviews are what give you a broad generalised idea, they aren’t enough when the thing in question could be career defining for you. You just cant trust the genuineness of reviews anymore these days!
Before we decide it’s quality, let’s see what it has to offer.
The Economist GMAT Prep offers three modules to choose from.
|Complete Prep||Premium Prep||Ultimate Prep|

Among these listed modules it claims the Premium Prep to be the most popular given the duration it takes and the access and improvement it promises.
For a comprehensive preparation, The Economist GMAT Prep gives you a score guarantee, comprehensive prep, option to ‘Ask-a-tutor’, live one on one sessions, practice exams, detailed markings on essays, extensive practice questions and mobile apps for both android and iOS.
Although, if you can still not make up your mind, it gives you an option to try the The Economist GMAT Prep free for a period of seven days as well.
The Economist GMAT Prep app is free. When upgraded to a full plan, the candidates can access over a hundred hours worth of brilliantly tailored content and a vast collection of about 5,000 practice questions.

The Economist GMAT Prep recommends taking practice on a computer screen instead of a mobile device.
