You can study the 25-35 hours of multimedia lessons at your own pace, and in case of doubts you have 24 online help available. In case you are bound by time, you can take a short online course. These online crash course programs include 5-7 hours of multimedia lessons and practice tests. Most of them lack the live interactive sessions.
To assist your study you shall be provided other study materials like flashcards, books, practice tests etc. You have the flexibility to repeat a lesson, stop it and restart it according to your convenience.

The most significant feature of these online programs is the practice tests. No course is complete without practice tests. Each online course must have at least four complete tests which are based on the CAT format. One of the main advantages of taking an online course is that it familiarizes you with a computer and its functioning, so that when you appear for the GRE CAT you are aware of the basic functions of a computer and do not waste your time. In addition, practice of typing on a computer increases your speed which is crucial for the Analytical Writing Section. Hence any course is incomplete without complete practice tests. Moreover it is important that your preparation is assessed from time to time. For this there should be sectional revision tests in the online programs. When you register for any course be mindful of this important aspect.
