Look, taking the GMAT isn't fun and neither is studying for it. Here's why I liked EMPOWERgmat:
I've done a fair amount of reading on the diminishing returns of more hands-on classes and tutoring and am a big believer is self-study for standardized tests such as the GMAT. EMPOWER provided all the training and materials I could have wanted and at $99/month was a tremendous value.
I took a practice CAT before starting the course and scored a 650. After 2 months of study I took my first GMAT and scored a 660. I took a month to relax, then studied for another month and scored a 700.
I studied when and where I wanted: sometimes consistently, sometimes in spurts, sometimes in my office, sometimes in bed. Everything was on my terms.
I don't want to give away industry secrets, but several strategies EMPOWER provided really helped me relax and focus to get the score I wanted.
Like I said, taking the GMAT and preparing for it are a pain. Paradoxically, I'm thankful I never have to use EMPOWER again, and that's precisely because it was such an effective tool. The GMAT is now behind me and hopefully business school is in my future!
