I cannot thank Zeke enough!

I had my exam yesterday and I came out with 710! I did not think this would ever be possible because I was studying GMAT for almost an entire year.

Completely cleared up my confusion regarding all the verb tenses.

Every other material I used - OG/Kaplan/MGMAT - made it really hard for me to understand all the verb tenses. I still don't know what subjunctive is. Or what this phrase or that phrase is.

But I am able to pick the right answer without knowing all that stuff. And my score shows it!

But with GMAT Pill, somehow I got it. Maybe it's taught so that dumb people like me can actually understand things in a way that others can't. It could be because I got more and more used to the material, but one thing's for sure: I'm super glad I signed up.

I was trolling around various forums and reading other reviews. Everybody said good things about GMAT Pill. I figured there's GOT to be some negatives.

Well, there are. Let me point them out first:
- The interface is not super clean. They could probably hire some UI designers and make the site look really pretty. If you tend to judge things by their physical outward appearance, this is a point to note.

-You need a reliable internet connection. This was not a problem for me, but I would imagine people who plan to study at the local starbucks where the internet might be shaky - you should probably just stay at home and use your home internet--or even your work computer.

But there were so many more pros:

- sooo much easier to understand than all the MGMAT/Kaplan books I was using. Also much better than reading through all the forum threads in terms of time efficiency.

- most videos viewable on iPad on the go. This was helpful as I was commuting on the train. With WiFi access, I was able to watch the videos in the morning and on the way back home. I say "most videos" because the remaining ones you need to use a real computer to watch the videos.

- Zeke boils down all the SC questions into core frameworks. With the right mindset, you can actually kind of guess what you're being tested on if you can identify the sentence structure/framework upfront. This helped a lot. Coming into each question, I had a plan of attack. Before, I would just stare at it and just kind of haphazardly go about it without getting anywhere. But now I have an attack strategy.

--Lots more that I probably can't think about right now.

Anyway, I hope this review is helpful. I normally don't take my time to do this, but I really do feel Zeke has done a really good job and wanted to help him back for helping me.

I would consider coming back to GMATPill for essay editing help. I don't need it right now, but perhaps in a few months.

Good luck, everyone!

We appreciate your thoughts!

Just a note that we've now upgraded our entire course interface so it's super slick and easy to use.

We also have mobile apps - iPhone/Android/iPad - to make it even easier to interact with our course material.

So on top of all the good points that Alexis mentioned, we've gone the extra mile in all dimensions.

To see what we mean, take a look at this PDF that shows screenshots of what's inside GMAT Pill:

I have used many GMAT study guides and I think the GMAT Pill is the best out of all of them. I really liked how the program targets specific question types in both the verbal and math section. I was able to follow the guide question by question and learn the strategy to solving it quickly. When I took the actual GMAT, a lot of those strategies were really helpful. I ended up scoring a 750! When I first took practice tests I scored around 600. So this definitely helped me a lot! I would recommend this to anyone who want to improve their score significantly.

I can't say anyone else who uses the program will get a 700+, but for the amount of time I spent to improve my score this was the most efficient way to tackle the test. I would watch the videos a couple of hours a night and for the most part I didn't have any trouble learning it. The explanations are very straightforward and most importantly it is very easy to go back and forth just in case you get lost. The program breaks each question down into separate videos and this really helped reinforce the strategies. I guess the only suggestion is that if they put a name to the strategy for each question that they go over it would be even easier to remember.

All in all, a terrific program and quite a bargain!

The video tutorials and Zeke and GMAT PILL Team are fabulous.
The GMAT PILL sections are meticulously designed which will actually do what it says " Beat the GMAT in as little time as possible"

Plus the support given by Zeke and his fabulous team who answer each and every mail , how much silly it might seem , promptly and efficiently.

I have recently started watching the videos. I am able to catch up with quants part which is my weak part.Its interesting and I have kept a log book also to gauge my progress.I hope it helps me to reach my dream target score.

I am consistently improving irrespective of my low efficiency while I began .
(5-stars)

Will get back to share my review in this portal , once again , with my GMAT results.

Regards
Sunil
5 Stars ***** to Gmat Pill , Zeke and Team :)

Taught by: Zeke Lee

Zeke is magician who makes it possible to crack GMAT without much hardship on your part.Prep will be completed in max 30 days. I began with the Sentence Correction Pill. Lesson videos are divided into 10 core frameworks, which do not correspond exactly to the grammar rules categorization as seen in other review materials. Therefore, while these lessons did give me an idea of what to expect on the GMAT SC, I had trouble having a clear picture of all the grammar rules and concepts that were being tested. In addition, the depth of the discussion on specific grammar rules does not go as deep as in other materials.

For CR, GMAT Pill introduced a unique thinking framework. But with different categories and types of thinking framework, conclusions, and question-types, the problem-solving process does get a bit for me at times. As a result, the problem-solving process wasn’t easily applicable and a lot of effort has to be spent on memorizing the types of framewo rk, conclusion, question types, etc

For RC, I couldn’t comment too much on it, as I believe for this particular section everyone’s reading strategy will be different. A thing to note is that there are a couple videos where we can follow the reading and thinking process of the instructor in answering the questions, and I believe these videos were pretty helpful.

For quant, similar problem persists. I believe the discussion on each topic is not categorized in a way that is easy to follow. The depth of the discussion also left a lot to be desired.

Overall, I do not think GMATPill is a bad product. It is just not for someone like me who need a more thorough discussion on each topic. For someone with solid fundamental on verbal and quant, and usually performs well on standardized tests, I believe GMATPill could be of a good value.

I started off with this course with a lot of skepticism in mind. The discussion and explanation on the verbal and quant sections seemed a little too simple. I started wondering whether this wouldindeed turn out to be sufficient enough to score well.

But then I began to try it out and realized that it was actually clearing a lot of clutter that I had in my head from my previous preparation for which I had used Manhattan prep. (turned out to be quite a nightmare as far as my past score goes; too many concepts taught in a complex way with many complex terminologies, especially in the verbal section, which led to a LOT of confusion).

GMAT Pill, on the other hand loosened up all these concept knots in my head and helped me really understand all the different sections. The content is broken down into bite sized pieces and easy-to-understand frameworks, which can be easily assimilated once you get some practice on the awesome practice pill platform.

My approach was to understand frameworks in each section and then to try the practice questions both in the practice pill platform and also from OG. This really made my understanding very robust. My confidence level started rising as it began deepening my understanding and resulted in my getting more and more practice questions right as a result.

For anyone who doesn't like to be overwhelmed by concepts made unnecessarily complicated(which can definitely be avoided, for those who think the complexity in the preparation content is inevitable), GMAT pill is the right platform. I studied for less than a month and was able to score 710, which by the way, is a 100 points improvement over my last score of 610.

I cannot thank Zeke & the GMAT Pill team enough for this. The user discussions also helped to deepen my understanding of really subtle question types.

Some suggestions:
- Although the verbal section has been dealt with pretty thoroughly on GMAT Pill, some of the sentence correction questions on the actual GMAT seem very different, with a lot of them having hyphens. I think there should be a separate section dealing with such question types.
- Sometimes the response to emails and questions posted on the discussions page can be slow and can be improved if there are more instructors.

Overall I think its a great course! The quant section is well organized and it helps you tackle variations in questions after getting the core concepts out of the way

I would highly recommend this to anyone who is short on time and needs the most bang for his/her buck!! :)

I originally signed up for the GMAT Pill during my senior year in college.

I studied off and on for the next 2 years but didn't get serious until this past February.

The GMAT Pill is a 30-day study program that takes you through all the unique portions of the GMAT.

I found their sentence correction, reading comprehensive, and critical reasoning sections to be awesome.

I liked their approach to data sufficiency.

I struggled with their problem solving and integrated reasoning sections.

Overall I think it's a good program. If I could redo everything, I would've just worked on their verbal sections (most importantly the sentence correction) and used a different program for my quant.

As the title of this review indicates, I cannot support this service enough! I was really struggling with the Quant section of the GMAT and, despite paying for a very expensive in class course, I still couldn't improve my score. In fact I took the test 3 times before signing up for GMATPill. Zeke's platform is truly effective. He has video reviews of every question you answer and the format really helps you not only retain the information but figure out where you went wrong. I also really valued his videos on time saving techniques such as estimation and elimination. He's also incredibly responsive to questions and reading comments from other users was valuable. After studying with the GMATPill I finally got the score I wanted and am now attending my top choice BSchool.

I did plenty of preliminary research (as I imagine you are currently doing) and came up with the GMAT Pill being the best fit for me and my study schedule (partially thanks to ease of access and the fact your membership does not run in 1-3 months as it would with other programs).

I found the verbal to be absolutely fantastic; I've looked at a few other resources and believe the verbal for GMAT Pill to be one of the best in breaking down the entire Verbal section into easily digestible and actionable frameworks.

However I found the Quant to be a bit disjointed where there wasn't much benefit for those needing the basics; it essentially just dives into rudimentary example problems which would be beneficial as a supplement to a study regime but not as a core resource and may not be enough for you.

I found the Sentence Correction (SC) Pill immensely helpful in driving home the key points necessary to succeed on the SC portion of the GMAT. The videos are short and to the point, especially useful for those that have to study in short increments due to busy schedules. The Quant pill was just as good, I wouldn't have been able to improve my score without it! Zeke is a great teacher. In my first exam attempt I utilized Kaplan and found their approach a bit gimmicky. GMAT Pill was head and shoulders above. I recommend it to anyone looking to improve their score.

Be very careful with this course, especially if you are starting with a decent score. I watched as my sentence correction scores steadily dropped while working through the GMAT Pill. I ended up buying other books as was able to get back to where I started, and was able to raise my score using a different service. The 50 point money back guarantee will not exist for a lot of people, so make sure you read the fine print. I did not use all six of the courses, but I can definitely recommend that you look elsewhere if you are trying to improve your sentence correction score.
