Description

Every year, students pay $1,000 and more to test prep companies to prepare for the verbal section of the GMAT. Now you can get the same preparation in an online course. Nova's GMAT Verbal Prep Course provides the equivalent of a 2-month, 50-hour course.

Although the GMAT verbal section is difficult, it is very learnable. Nova's GMAT Verbal Prep Course presents a thorough analysis of GMAT verbal and introduces numerous analytic techniques that will help you immensely, not only on the GMAT but in business school as well. 

Features:

  • Videos! Hundreds of videos explaining the text, examples, and exercises in step-by-step detail.
  • Verbal: Develop the ability to spot places from which questions are likely to be drawn as you read a passage (pivotal words, counter-premises, etc.). 
  • Writing: Comprehensive analysis of the writing task, including writing techniques, punctuation, rhetoric, and style. 
  • Mentor Exercises: These exercises provide hints, insight, and partial solutions to ease your transition from seeing GMAT problems solved to solving them on your own.
