Career Launcher, TIME these insititutes mainly specialize in CAT and other exams like CLAT, etc. As far as GRE is concerned, you should mainly rely on Official ETS Study Material, crucial books like Word Power Made Easy and couple of CAT Quant Books and GRE Material and Tests by Magoosh. However is affordable, you can also choose Jamboree.
