What are Crackverbal's credentials?
We launched CrackVerbal in 2006 and officially incorporated it into CrackVerbal Edutech Pvt. Ltd., head-quartered in Bangalore. We have catered to over 4000 students and have 5 centres spread across Bangalore (Infantry Road, Koramangala, Marathahalli and Jayanagar) and Chennai (Adyar). We are one of the fastest growing GMAT prep companies in India, and have carved a name for ourselves as the go-to player in the test-prep industry.
How are you different from competitor X?
Firstly, most test preparation institutes are modeled after US training programs which are meant for native speakers of English, for whom math is the primary problem area. We are the FIRST to understand the verbal woes of the Indian test-taker, and we use specialized techniques to address this.
Secondly, this course is taught exclusively by Arun Jagannathan, who is considered one of India's finest GMAT instructors. Don't take our word for it - watch the videos and decide for yourself.
Thirdly, as we are based out of India - you can expect support during India hours - especially over the phone. This is a huge advantage when you want real-time support.
Who would benefit most from this course?
There are 3 kinds of students who derive maximum advantage from our course -
1) Those who have not started yet and need a focused approach.
2) Those who have already taken the GMAT and need a fresh perspective.
3) Those who have started self-prep and need to boost their Verbal scores.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts whenever you want it to! Though it is recommended that you follow the study plan to complete it in about 1 month, it is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does one full year of access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for the whole year - across any and all devices you own.
What do these GMAT Videos contain?
All the GMAT HD videos have been shot exclusively with Arun. They cover all aspects of the GMAT so you don't need anything else. Apart from theory, Arun will also take you through the process of applying these concepts to solve real GMAT problems.
Can you list out all the videos I will receive?
You can just go through each individual course to see the list of videos that will be made available on subscription. These videos will be greyed out now, but upon enrolment, you will get instant access to the entire video library.
What prior preparation is required before joining this GMAT course?
Not much. The course will start from ground zero and quickly build up to help you solve really tough problems. So don't worry - just get started.

Do you provide any mock tests?
Currently, we do not provide any practice tests along with the course. We believe your best bet is to take the GMATPrep tests available on www.mba.com.
However, we are working on our testing platform http://gmatonthego.com and it should have 2 full-length tests. This would be made available free to all students enrolling for this program.
What has been the average GMAT score of your students?
Honestly speaking - it is very easy to fudge numbers. We also depend on students coming back to us to report their scores, so we might not have the correct data at all times.
Having said that, you can see what our students say about us: http://gmat.crackverbal.com/why-choose-us/student-successes/ .
We take pride in our track record of helping students achieve a score improvement. Many of our students have shown huge score improvements (from initial diagnostic to final score) - we've seen as high as 300 point improvements!
You can read some of the stories here: http://www.crackverbal.com/forum/display/Student-Debriefs/21
Is there a Score Improvement Guarantee?
We do not offer a score guarantee to our students. We find that a student's success has everything to do with the work they put into the class. We provide you with an abundance of resources, along with 20+ hours of class time, and an instructor who is committed to your success as well. It is then up to you to make good use of our material and to reach out to our Support team if you are not making the progress you want to see. As a student, if you are attending every class and doing the 10-15 hours of homework each week, we are confident that you will get the score you need.
Can I speak to your past students for their feedback and experiences?
Our students are our brand ambassadors and many of them freely provide their advice online. But it is not possible for us to make their personal phone numbers available. So your best bet is to ask this question on various forums.
Of course, we can give you a starting point for your research: http://gmat.crackverbal.com/crackverbal-reviews/
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 7 days and we will give you a full refund.
How do I confirm my payment has come through?
You should automatically get full access once you go through the purchase process. You will also receive an email from @usefedora.com informing you about your registration for the course.
If you wish CrackVerbal can provide you an e-invoice with the payment details.
I don't have a Credit Card - how do I purchase your course?
Please call us on 900-8166-800 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we should be able to assist you with some alternative payment methods.
What are the GMAT Strategy Sunday Sessions?
Roughly twice a month, we conduct a Live Verbal Online Advanced class, which is available to all our students – that is, students of both the classroom program and the on-demand program. These sessions are meant for students who are clear on their fundamentals and want to head towards the next level. These online advanced classes provide analyses of tough concepts such as bold-face in CR, meaning-based questions in SC, and big picture questions in RC, through tough 700+ level problems.
Upon enrolling for our on-demand course, you will receive an all-access pass to all the Strategy Sunday videos recorded from May 2012.
How long after the GMAT Course should I take my test?
We suggest roughly 2 months of prep for Verbal alone. There are other factors that will determine when you should take the test. Firstly, you current level of prep is a important factor to assess how much more time you need. Secondly, your performance in Quant is another factor that has to be kept in mind. Taking a GMATPrep test is a good way to get a better picture of where you stand.
Do you provide MBA Application assistance?
Depends on your definition of "assistance" :)
We provide some free support to all our GMAT students such as the free "Kickstarting your MBA Application Plans" course. Apart from this we are happy to do a profile evaluation for you - just fill out the form here:
