This review is for:   GMAT Pill - 6 Pill Combo Course | Location:   Online | Taught by:  Zeke Lee
Around a month ago I scored 770 (48/48) with 6.0 AWA and 8 IR.

To do this I used only the GMAT Pill and the official guide (I also have the Kaplan 800 book, but that’s been used mostly as a door stop).

I didn't believe the other story of someone else getting 780 with GMAT Pill, but now I do.

I was brought up and live in London, so whilst I am a native English speaker, I’ve never done any US style standardised testing.

I can thoroughly recommend the GMAT Pill, for someone coming to the GMAT for the first time, it was able to cut through all the confusion, complications and stress that one gets when faced with a vast body of new material (Is it only me that was daunted by the size of the OG when it arrives via Amazon?) instead cutting it down into manageable chunks that can be remembered and then rolled out again on test day.

At first I was a little hesitant, not sure whether to splash out the big bucks on a known name, but the “freebie” bits of the website were enough to see that the videos were clear and I also really liked the personal service – all the videos are by Zeke and he answers all the questions. I’m really glad I made this choice.

You can also see my emails to Zeke as well as my Youtube video testimonial here:

Hi - thanks for the note. I've seen comments about SC sections only, can you discuss other Verbal and Quant sections and your experience?

Just a note that James has joined GMAT Pill staff for some time now and has already helped many students learn the GMAT Pill method. Only GMAT Pill hires former students who actually understand our approach. We think this says a lot about James and GMAT Pill students.

Hi peto23, The course covers both fundamentals and strategy, though a bigger emphasis on strategy. I'd say if you don't know the difference between 3^7 versus 7^3, you should probably get additional help. For SC, the teachings are quite easy to understand.

I want to take this course, does it only teach test taking strategy or does it teach you the material as well?
