Hi Mike,

I've been looking around for the best resource to improve my GMAT score, and it looks Magoosh offers the best value available. I have several questions, but I appreciate any help you can offer.

Back story: Scored 710 (Q45, V42, 6/6 AWA) on my first GMAT try, but my only prep was the two official practice exams and using the free test days on gmatclub. I'm always hesitant to spend money on test prep, but the +50 point guarantee is too good to pass up. Also, I have not scheduled a retake yet.

Questions:

1) Is there still no limit on the initial score for a +50 point improvement? (i.e. guarantee 760+ on my next exam)

2) Reading through your 3 month schedule for advanced students, I noticed that it excludes many videos -I assume this would negate the guarantee. Would it be a waste of valuable time and effort for someone in my position to go through all of the material simply to get the score guarantee? I would be going through all of the videos in addition to following your schedule.

3) Assuming that I do modify this plan to include all of the videos, do you have any suggestions on implementing the videos that you don't prescribe in your plan? How much additional time do you estimate going through these videos would add to my preparation?

I apologize for the number of questions, especially if any have been answered before. Once again, thanks for the help.

Dear LoganJ94,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

1) No upper limit. If you already got a 710 (congratulations!), and you follow all the requirements of the study schedule, then we guarantee a 760 or your money back.

2-3) Here's what I'll say. Probably you know most of the basic concepts already. You will notice that all of the math modules and some of the SC modules have quizzes at the end. For the easy modules, if you simply ace the quiz, that counts as watching all the lessons in that module. As you get to modules that you think you know everything but are not sure, for each video, click straight through to the summary: if you know everything in the summary inside-out, then that's a video you don't need to watch in full. You may find a few ideas here and there that are new to you, especially in strategy videos. Overall, this approach should significantly limit the time you spend watching videos. Certainly as you get a practice question wrong, always watch the video explanation, and consider watching the related lessons:
I definitely think that someone at your skill level should be spending more time practicing advanced questions than lesson-watching, and that's the design of the full plan. I don't think it would take that much time, say in the first week, to knock off several of those quizzes. I would think you could skimp a little on the introductory material in the first week, because you already know the format of the test! Some of the earlier Day Sixes are light, so you might be able to fit a few advanced lessons in there.
I don't know whether you plan to invest in the MGMAT books or CAT tests. At the very least, I would recommend paying for and taking all of those MGAT practice tests, and getting the official Exam Pack 2, so you have plenty of fresh practice with GMAT-length tests. I want you to build your intellectual stamina for the ordeal of a full test.

Does all this make sense? Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Mike :-)
