If you want to score a 700+, look no further. Going through the well explained Manhattan GMAT guides and watching Thursdays with Ron alone will help you score that 700+.

The Manhattan GMAT guides are detailed and explained in a way that is understandable to any beginner with rusty quant or verbal.

The Manhattan GMAT test analysis has the detailed level of analysis that no other test prep company offers. I also loved their OG tracker, which helped me pin point my weak areas and practice OG questions by topic.

Thursdays with Ron is a hidden gem that is absolutely free. Watch these sessions and you will no longer think about quant or verbal in the same way.

MGMAT and Ron Purewal are awesome! My score improved from 650 to a 710 just because of MGMAT and Ron.

I enrolled in the Manhattan GMAT 9 week prep course and recently took the GMAT. I'm very happy to report that I managed to score a 740 (48 on quant and 42 on verbal). I felt very well prepared after completing the course. I attended all the classes and felt that they were a good supplement to my studying completed outside of the class. I only used the manhattan gmat materials in my preparation. Assuming you put the time in, the materials have everything that you need to score in the +700 range. In addition, Ron's posts were incredibly helpful in improving my performance in the SC.

I took the ManhattanPrep classes early in 2016 and high recommend the course. The classes and material were great and helped me study to take the GMAT and get a score over 700. The books and online material are very streamlined so you study in the most efficient manner and don't waste time learning or doing things that won't help. Our instructor, Christine, was a lot of fun. Make no mistake though, the study and homework workload is heavy. I'd say 10-20 hrs per week.

Their website was particularly useful. They have online classes that cover the class content and can also be used for review. The interactive classes have excellent exercises to help with the AWA and IR. And finally they have the online CATs and a system to take the individual questions/tests online, review answer explanations and analyze your performance on specific types of questions so you can work on improving weak areas.

I highly recommend Manhattan Prep for GMAT preparation. When I was researching test prep options, most sources suggested Manhattan Prep was the best. In my opinion, Manhattan Prep has the best material and strategies to effectively prepare for and perform well on the GMAT exam.

I took the 9 session Live Instruction course with Keith Blume. Keith was an amazing instructor. It was evident from the first class how genuinely interested he was in getting to know his students individual strengths and weaknesses and helping each one succeed. Keith is truly passionate about his job and is a highly effective teacher. I am grateful for his guidance in helping me exceed my expectations on the GMAT exam.

I decided to take the GMAT with only 6 weeks to prep. Patrick Tyrell and the entire Manhattan Prep team were lifesavers. I enrolled in the accelerated online course and jumped into one on one tutoring. Patrick had been recommended to be by a former student of his and I was not disappointed! He was patient, incredibly encouraging, and insanely helpful! We met a couple of times/week for 6 weeks and he was consistently available to answer my questions via email too. I hadn't done any math in years and he quickly and effortlessly taught me the basics. He was wonderful about helping me to figure our what I knew, what I needed to know, and how to best spend my short time preparing best. I raised my score 100 points and couldn't have been happier!

I took the Manhattan Prep Course in the summer of 2015 with Eric. I really appreciated his teaching methods as he keeps things interesting and fun. If you need help on math, he is definitely the right instructor to help you out! I definitely recommend taking Eric's course in Orange County and if you're on the fence about committing the money, you should try to attend the first class for free and decide from there. Overall, I think Eric is a great instructor who genuinely cares about his students. He still keeps in contact with me and answers any questions I still have.

My Manhattan GMAT experience with Brett Beach Kimball and Stephanie Moyerman was fantastic. I took the online course, which I was initially hesitant about since I learn better in person. However, I figured it would be a good idea to study for an online test with an online course. The MGMAT blackboard program is excellent – it feels like you are in a real classroom, with live instruction, a whiteboard, and real time Q&A. Brett and Steph did a great job working through a ton of material both on the quant and verbal side. My test scores improved consistently over the course of the nine weeks and their lessons definitely played a major role. I also liked that the class size was relatively small (~10 people) and they would stick around after class to answer any individual questions. One thing I would note is that the MGMAT tests are very hard. I actually ended up doing better on the real test than I had ever done on one of their practice tests. I think this is meant to encourage you to find your weaknesses and study as much as possible. It worked for me, and I would highly recommend MGMAT!

I highly recommend the 9-week Manhattan Prep course. Isaac was an incredible instructor, structuring a course that iteratively built-up different skills in a totally manageable yet appropriately challenging way. The class involved a lot of actual problem solving as well which was great and helped drive home the lessons. The only downside to any of these classes is having a room full of people with varying strengths and skill sets. That said, Isaac was willing to dedicate extra time after class and during breaks to answering specific questions, and he took the time to recommend alternative study strategies to those looking for more focus in one area.

Manhattan Prep gave me the confidence, methodology and tools to make a huge improvement in my GMAT performance. I completed the 9 sessions prep course in fall 2015. My instructor, Gilad Edelman, kept subject matter engaging and was able to break down components in a way that was easy to digest, while also keeping the class challenged. I gained tools to improve across both quantitative and verbal sections. In addition, he was always available for extended discussion inside and outside of class. I was able to design a personalized study plan that worked for me. I started out with a low 600s score when beginning Manhattan Prep, and improved to a 740 by test day!

Anisa is Amazing!!!

Don't waste time with other companies or Craigslist randoms - choose Manhattan Prep, and for 1:1 I HIGHLY recommend Anisa as a tutor. Having circled through 3-4 tutors/companies thus far, I can confidently say she is by all measures the best tutor I've had. She remains calm, is kind, and never makes me feel self-conscious about asking a dumb question or request for help. She developed a highly personalized study plan to address topics, test taking strategies, and managing stress (e.g. by question type - CR Evaluate the Argument, by approach - using Smart Numbers, and even adding 15 min. mindfulness to my assignments as a way to manage test stress).

The price is reasonable / comparable (and you should NEVER pay >$250/hr ...EVER) and combined with Manhattan's incredible suite of materials - there's just no debate. For example, one of the most helpful sessions was examining all my practice exams + every official guide practice question - the takeaway? I slow down after question 16, and don't quantify my deficit when I'm behind on my timing benchmarks... within a week, my score shot up. You simply can not get those types of insights without Manhattan's materials and practice exams. Or with a smart and thoughtful tutor cheering for you on the way.
