  • Students should be preparing for the GMAT - this course is specifically geared towards that test

The Problem Solving questions on the GMAT are the easiest on the test - which puts the pressure on you, the test-taker, to nail them all.

  • The adaptive nature of the GMAT makes easy questions hard. Why this paradox? Because when you get an easy question, the pressure is on you to nail it - and nail it fast. If you miss on an easy question, the adaptive GMAT will relegate you pretty quickly to a lower tier score. And trust me, the pressure this puts on you can often lead you to get an easy question wrong. This is the paradox of the easy-but-hard questions on the GMAT.
  • Problem-solving questions, unlike data sufficiency questions, are very predictable indeed. So - don't fear them. Adopt a methodical, workmanlike approach to these questions, and you will get them right with a minimum of fuss. That's what this class will help you do.
  • Oh, and quick mathematical shortcuts are a big contributor to success on the GMAT. Use these shortcuts to solve questions in record time, or to confirm an answer you already arrived at using a more conventional technique. This course covers loads of such mathematical mnemonics.

What's covered

  • 65 high-quality problem-solving problems, original, and prepared to span the range of such questions on the GMAT
  • 5 hours of step-by-step reasoning, so you can learn to think like the test-setters
  • Visual highlights so that you really get why alternatives are right or wrong

Using discussion forums

Please use the discussion forums on this course to engage with other students and to help each other out. Unfortunately, much as we would like to, it is not possible for us at Loonycorn to respond to individual questions from students:-(

We're super small and self-funded with only 2 people developing technical video content. Our mission is to make high-quality courses available at super low prices.

The only way to keep our prices this low is to *NOT offer additional technical support over email or in-person*. The truth is, direct support is hugely expensive and just does not scale.

We understand that this is not ideal and that a lot of students might benefit from this additional support. Hiring resources for additional support would make our offering much more expensive, thus defeating our original purpose.

It is a hard trade-off.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Who is the target audience?
  • Yep! Anyone preparing to take the GMAT
  • Yep! Non-native speakers looking to level the playing field in the verbal section
  • Yep! Anyone that finds grammar jargon incredibly confusing, and would like simple, crisp explanations in everyday language

Loonycorn is us, Janani Ravi and Vitthal Srinivasan. Between us, we have studied at Stanford, been admitted to IIM Ahmedabad and have spent years  working in tech, in the Bay Area, New York, Singapore and Bangalore.

Janani: 7 years at Google (New York, Singapore); Studied at Stanford; also worked at Flipkart and Microsoft
