GMAT Prep Live Online Course

Prepare with our comprehensive online GMAT prep course led by a live expert instructor. Enjoy all the interactivity of traditional classroom learning with one big plus—the comfort and convenience of being able to learn from anywhere. 

My instructor was great at explaining the concepts, solutions and how to approach the questions. I'm so glad UofSC offers this test prep program.

Learn from Anywhere

Learning in our live online course is just like being in a classroom without traveling to campus. You'll regularly meet your instructor online in a live interactive classroom setting and have access to office hours in case you have questions. The sessions are recorded so you can review the material from previous sessions.

About the Course

GMAT prep classes are offered live online, giving you the option to choose the schedule that works best for you. Our virtual classroom provides you with the flexibility to attend class from any location, the opportunity to interact in real time with our expert instructors, and the ability to re-watch the recordings of your class sessions at your convenience through 120 days after the last scheduled class session. 

This course includes a course workbook and the official textbook from GMAC, containing previously released test questions.

I am so glad I decided to sign up for this course! I feel so much more prepared to take the test.

The Online Experience

You may have questions about online learning and the course format. We have a list of common questions here for you. If you have additional questions or need more information, you can ask an expert.

The live online classes are very similar to the classroom format. We use the same curriculum and materials, and the same proven strategies to help you succeed on the exam. You are able to interact with your instructor in a live setting and participate in the class through the use of online technologies.

The live online class uses software called Adobe Connect. This software allows you to view and hear the instructor, share documents, and interact with the instructor and other students.  While the instructor uses a microphone, students do not need a microphone or camera to participate. Students simply type questions and answers into a chat box. Some modules also feature quizzes.

Most online classes are asynchronous, meaning they are pre-recorded or prepared in advance. Students work through the classes at their own pace or are provided with a new module to review on their own each week. Live online classes are led by a live instructor who is there to teach the class and answer questions in real-time; just like in a traditional classroom setting.

All you need to participate in the live online class is access to high speed internet on a computer with speakers (or headphones). Our virtual classroom application is Adobe Connect. Please use this link to run this diagnostic test on the computer you plan to use for the course.

Yes. The live sessions will be recorded and will be available for streaming. The streaming video will be available shortly after the scheduled meeting date and will be accessible for 120 days after the session. 

No. The class includes the same textbooks and workbooks as our traditional classroom course. A copy of the textbook and workbook will be mailed to you. 

Course materials will be shipped to the address provided when you register. We recommend registering at least five business days in advance of the course start date to ensure timely delivery of your course materials package. Registering within five business days of the course start or after the course start? Not a problem. Students will be emailed digital workbook handouts for the class sessions to facilitate participation until their course materials are delivered.
