The Economist announced the launch today of an Android app for its Economist GMAT Tutor program, which allows students to prepare for the GMAT by focusing on their individual learning needs. In June of this year, The Economist released its iOS app for iPhone and iPad mobile applications. With over 2,000 downloads, the app has proven to be a popular learning tool for GMAT Tutor students on-the-go. The Android version is now available for free download via the Google Play store.
Like the iPhone app, the Android version offers approximately 100 hours worth of content and over 5,000 practice questions. Both the mobile and desktop versions of the course employ proprietary artificial intelligence, so the more time students spend learning with the program, the more customized it becomes. The course will adapt to a student’s strengths and weaknesses, honing in on areas that need the most improvement.
“The iPhone app has proven to be a valuable component of our students’ GMAT prep strategy, so we were keen to launch a version for our customers who use Android devices,” said Adam Ingberman, Senior Product Director at Economist GMAT Tutor. “Now even more students will benefit from accessing the latest adaptive learning technology from their phones and tablets.”
Access to GMAT Tutor is free for seven days, after which students can choose between three learning plans priced at $550, $770 and $940. Support is offered via a global team of expert GMAT instructors who provide guidance to students through an in-app messaging system and live video chats.
Both mobile apps are supported by a full online version of the program (http://gmat.economist.com
), which provides extra features such as full-length Computer Adaptive Testing GMAT practice tests, essay support and a personalized progress dashboard.
Economist GMAT Tutor’s courses are backed with a comprehensive improvement guarantee. The program guarantees a score improvement of 50 or 70 points, depending on access level.
