Sherpa Prep (DC) Review?  [#permalink]

Hey Everyone,

New to the community and looking to start my preparation for taking the GMAT in a few months (probably April/May). I recently moved to the DC area for work, and was considering taking a class and came across Sherpa Prep. I found a thread from 2010 on it, but nothing since. It got great reviews on yelp, specifically a teacher named Nafeez, and was wondering if anyone had any experience with the course, or instructor. The course runs $899 for 9 weeks (12 classes), which seems to be well below the average price for an in person course. Also, if anyone has any other recommendations i'm all ears.
Thanks!

Hi Ramesh,

Since you're not going to be beginning your studies for a few months, you have plenty of time to research the various study options and pick one that best matches your schedule and personality.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

There are various ways to study for the test and private tutoring is one of them and the most expensive one:

1. You can opt for a book heavy approach
2. You can opt for an online course
3. You can opt for an online tutoring service/private tutoring service.

Which one you chose depends on the mode of study you are most comfortable with.

You can have a look at our courses here: http://optimus-prep.com/gmat/

What is your target GMAT score?
You need close to 3 months to prepare well for the GMAT. So choose the GMAT date accordingly.
Studying more that required sometimes burns you out.

Greetings,

I recently finished the Sherpa Prep GMAT course and can't speak highly enough about the team and the experience. I was completely blown away. The course is 9 weeks long with classes meeting once (sometimes twice) a week. Classes alternate between building fundamental math and verbal skills designed to help you grasp simple and complex concepts quickly in order to help you beat the GMAT. Each student receives a course syllabus, Official Guide study materials, and incredibly detailed Sherpa course packets. The packets and class work are seriously your key to crushing the GMAT. You'll learn everything you need to know and will learn quick/simple solutions to tackle the toughest GMAT problems.

My instructor was Nafeez and I can't speak highly enough about him. He is an incredible instructor and truly cares about his students. He takes the time to personalize the experience for each student so he or she can be the best version of themselves on test day and during the entire application process. Nafeez was always available for one-on-ones before or after class, during office hours, or via email. He makes sure you know that you are a Sherpa student for life. Additionally, Sherpa continues to provide help and guidance even after the course ends, you've taken your GMAT, and you've been accepted to school.

Please do yourself a favor and invest in Sherpa's program, it's an absolute steal and incredibly affordable. Anyone who is serious about going back to a top business school shouldn't look anywhere else but Sherpa Prep. You seriously won't be disappointed. You can even reach out to Sherpa and sit in on one of their classes just to see how much you can/will learn. You will be completely blown away by the experience and the incredible instruction.

I can't recommend Sherpa highly enough. Nafeez is an incredibly engaging teacher and gives clear, straightforward guidance. I came out of that class with great tools not only for problem solving but also for managing my time and mental state on test day. Above all, Nafeez helped me understand the discipline required to do well on the GMAT - not only how much study time is required but also how to use that study time wisely. I'm walking away with a 720 and am quite confident I couldn't have done it without Sherpa.

I took the Sherpa GMAT course and agree with the positive reviews. The classes are incredibly thorough, and my instructor, Nafeez, offered great test-taking techniques throughout the classes. The most valuable aspect of the course for me, though, is the assistance you'll receive outside of class. You will have weekly office hours and check-ins/updates with your instructor at your disposal, at no additional cost, indefinitely. I would definitely recommend Sherpa.

I give Sherpa Prep my highest recommendation. I took the Sherpa GMAT course during spring 2018 and improved my GMAT score by 90 points. The class provides you with both the knowledge and strategy for tackling the test, which is essential given the complexity and time pressures imposed by the adaptive nature of the GMAT. Their class sizes are capped at 12, which means you always have ample opportunity to have your questions answered. The course also includes tons of invaluable study materials to help you digest and master all the knowledge needed to beat the test.

Most importantly, as a boutique test prep shop, they really go the extra mile to offer personalized instruction and support over other big name test prep companies. Each instructor schedules several 1:1 check-in sessions with you throughout the course to go over your error log and address content sticking points and areas of text strategy or anxiety. Sherpa holds office hours every Sunday that are open to all students to get extra tutoring support—which you can continue to attend for as much time as you need after the course ends before taking the test. After my first GMAT test attempt didn’t go as well as I’d hoped, both Nafeez and Erin took time to speak with me over the phone that week to help me debrief the test and develop a strategy for coming back stronger on the next attempt. No serious test prep company is cheap, but I really felt Sherpa made the costs more than worth it for my future professional gain.

If you're aiming for an elite GMAT score (700+), Sherpa Prep is 100% the course for you. They have truly "hacked" the GMAT and designed a comprehensive course that makes conquering the GMAT simply a matter of how much time/effort you put in. The value of this course is undeniable. It's a good deal and worth every penny. Highly recommmend.

I'm extremely happy with the decision I made to go with Sherpa Prep for my GMAT prep. Simply put Nafeez is an A+ teacher. He will arm you with all methods, concepts, and motivation needed to succeed on this test.

On top of being a very talented instructor, Nafeez's personality makes going to class easy. He keeps the class engaged, but also knows when to lighten the mood or crack a joke. He is extremely knowledgeable on all things GMAT and all things business school (and more...). He is very accessible to his students and puts in the effort to get to know each student on an individual level (you will have the opportunity to set up one-on-ones throughout the course and beyond).

I have no doubt that I am getting more value with Sherpa Prep than I would be with any of the other GMAT prep companies. It's really uncommon to hear such overwhelmingly favorable opinions of a GMAT prep course/instructors like you will hear about Sherpa Prep. Do yourself a favor and sign up for the class, it is very much worth it.
