I signed up for the Quant Combo Pill--data sufficiency and problem solving--three weeks before my test date. I spent the first week watching all of the videos and let the knowledge soak in. Zeke is very practical and emphasizes the importance of breaking each problem down into its component parts, which was the big thing that I had been missing in all of my other prep work. After the first week of solid review I started doing practice problems and taking practice tests, and noticed a steady improvement in my accuracy as time went on.

I scored a 720 on the GMAT (44Q/45V) when I took it, up from 660 (35Q/45V) a few months ago. I attribute this boost solely to the GMAT Pill product.

this is a very good course. i like the way zeke has all the concept under one roof and uses simple method to make us understand. i am sure you would love his method and would use it to help in your prep for the gmat. sc is an important section and many struggle but after this you will find it better to understand concepts and exceptions (although you need to work for them on your own) this is with every course and this one is not exception. if you need exceptional score work hard and beat the odds. goodluck folks

I consider myself fairly average in academics and the GMAT seemed daunting initially. I took it up to score the best i could however, i didnt want to sit down for courses and classes. GMATPILL seemed like a great solution - fastpaced, simple and flexible to suit one's necessities. It gave me insight and approaches that changed the game. I studied for a total of 1.5 months, 3-4 hours a day and scored a 720.
My advice - CR seems easy? take the table top method seriously, it definitely changes your perspective which is as important than the number of right answers.

I give these guys a lot of credit and definitely recommend for anyone who wants to ace this gmat without a lot of effort.

I just wanted to take this time to thank you GMAT Pill for my success! I started studying a month ago and saw my score jump from 720, 47Q, 42V (GMAC Practice Score) to 770, 50Q, 47V on the actual exam!

I studied using the GMAT Pill practice questions as well as Manhattan GMAT (Practice tests, Sentence Correction, and Advanced Quant.; not the full program).

I really think GMAT Pill has struck a wonderful balance between solid free services and establishing a revenue stream through convincing folks to buy full membership. I was on a bit of a budget (because I wanted to save funds for MBA applications) so I did not purchase the full membership. As a Bain associate consultant, I am definitely recommending GMAT Pill to the new class of Bainies I am training this week.

I studied for the GMAT using the Manhattan books and scored 690. With ten days to go before my retake, I bought GMAT Pill and started studying. The results speak for themselves.

For many of us, the content tested on the GMAT was taught to us in middle or high school but is now long forgotten. I could figure out most SC questions because the wrong answers sounded weird, but I did not know rules such as the proper use for "due to" or "whether," both of which were tested on my actual exam.

GMAT Pill does an excellent job of quickly refreshing old content and teaching the rules and logic of the test. In addition to the courses, there are also tons of questions that you can answer, with videos of Zeke walking through his thought process. I was soon adopting his thinking about cutting fluff and looking for key words. The result is that you gain exactly what you need to ace the test. I highly recommend this product, with the OG and the test prep software. The SC pill is best in class.

I discovered GMAT Pill early into my preparation. I was aware that I had less than two months to prepare for GMAT and I would require a fast-track method to prepare. My foundations in Quants were decent but I had little exposure to the sentence correction and critical reasoning sections of Verbal. I also needed to improve my time management skills.



GMAT Pill was the ideal resource to plug in all the gaps in my preparations. The best advantage GMAT Pill offers is through the frameworks. The frameworks are in Zeke’s unique style where you can visualize the thought process. GMAT Pill also offers videos where Zeke works through the problems. The informal instruction style where Zeke encourages you to think through the problems was absolutely critical for my final score. I believe the constant reinforcement of the frameworks while solving the problems also helped me in building my foundations. With these tools in my bag, I could look at a problem and quickly figure out the best way to solve the problem. Frameworks such as the “numbers vs. percentage” in Data Sufficiency, “like vs. as” in sentence correction, “getting rid of the fluff” in RC, “connecting the dots” were extremely useful. I have mentioned a few, but there were several other frameworks which came in handy during the actually GMAT exam.



The IR section was also helpful in getting a hang of the different problems you can look forward to in the actual GMAT exam. The IR section is usually time consuming and the prior preparation helps in saving that extra few minutes. I consistently used the GMAT Pill app while travelling to work to put in a few extra minutes of study every day. The problem sets are also a good resource to practice problems on the move. Thank you GMAT Pill. A 750 score would not have been possible without you.

GMAT Pill - 710 in 6 weeks

This is for people who want a cost-effective and intense study plan that doesn't involve babysitting! You do it on your own time but there is enough structure provided for you. I really liked the core frameworks for DS and PS. I used the one-month study plan but started with Quant since that was my weakest area. I'm a native English speaker and have been working for 5 years, so going back to the Quant was painful at first. The core framework really helped me start each problem. I had 6 weeks to study total, and did it mostly on weekends and before/after work. I also liked that the Pill made me feel like this was doable--something I could easily accomplish if I spent the time. The article about the GMAT psychology was especially helpful to read and re-read.

I am happy to say that, on my first try, I got a 710!

I am Chinese majoring in Accounting and Finance for my undergraduate. Looking forward to getting my masters in the UK, I took the GMAT exam. Given my background, I thought that both my verbal and quantitative would not be a problem. Thus, I went for the first round of GMAT without much preparation, I was disappointed to obtain 680. After taking GMAT Pill for a month, my next score was 730 and I was admitted into London Business School.

I signed up for GMAT Pill after a recommendation from a friend. During that period, I was overloaded with school work, CFA Level 1, the student club that I founded in university and also a small side business that I was running. However, GMAT Pill provided me a good solution to efficiently increase my ability. I began to listen to GMAT Pill on the bus, when I was at the gym and even waiting for lesson. There are also many small tips that proved to be helpful during the actual test. Learning through video is definitely more effective than learning from books. The best thing about GMAT Pill is that it is user friendly, effective and allows me to learn anytime, anywhere.

One slight area for improvement would be to enhance the smoothness of the video.

I cant guarantee that GMAT Pill is the best resource out there. But if you are a really busy candidate with the determination to devote whatever time you have left to preparing GMAT, I think this is the perfect program.

Hello,

I just retook the GMAT on Monday, 7/1/2013, and jumped from 610 to 720 (Q: 45, V: 44) over 6 weeks. Over those 6 weeks I used GMAT Pill's lectures almost exclusively to study.

I am a physician and have taken multiple computerized and written standardized tests over the last decade (SAT; AP Exams; MCAT; USMLE Steps I,II, & III). I have never felt as well prepared for the actual test as I did after GMAT Pill's complete prep course.

I was nervous about using a "different" approach but I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

Thanks GMAT Pill!

Attached is my score report from the exam showing my scores.

I was struggling with Reading comprehension and Sentence Correction. I had previously used MGMAT, and was now looking for newer questions and a different strategy for solving these two question types.

Reading Comprehension:
I think the GMAT Pill does a decent job of breaking down how to read a passage, how to actively recognize information being given to you, and how to connect that information to questions. I don't completely agree with its strategy to skip over certain sentences once the topic sentence has been identified, but I certainly think you can quickly scan it with your eyes in the interest of saving time.
I give this a 3.5 out of 5 on the RC.

SC:
The main take away for me was that logic and reasoning must be applied to SC questions. However I think Gmat pill falls short on the quality of the questions and the support to explain and or provide live feedback on answers that are confusing/don't make sense.
I give the SC a 2 out of 5.

I think the RC helped me significantly and allowed me to bump up my verbal score by a few points.

Although I used a tutor and studied through other prep books, I do believe the GMAT pill played an important role in the RC section for me.

Verbal before: 37
Verbal after: 40

Good luck.
