1)TTP provides simple and clear explanations on conceptual topics. It comprehensively explains all the steps so that your foundations are clear and you know exactly how to get to the answer. As you practice more you are able to tweak things and skip steps as per the question and time constraints but it's very important to have all the steps and foundational knowledge clear
2) Personalised and flexible learning plans
3) Flash cards, diagnostic tests, custom tests based on weaknesses
4)Comprehensive quant course - built the entire basis of my preparation
5)Large number of questions available for practice
6) Quant questions are made in such a way that they check what you’ve learnt and how clear your basics are. They are different from official gmat questions but I feel they are very important as they strengthen your basics and force you to think so you’re able to apply the knowledge on harder official questions
7) User friendly interface
8) Enjoyed the CR course because it was extremely simple and ensured the correct approach to question

Would make the product better:

The inability to emulate an official mock exam.
Also somehow found it tough to get through SC using TTP. It didn’t work for me.
More material for IR could be provided.

A little background about myself. I graduated in 2019 with a BA in History, but I had math till 12th grade. I am not scared of math but I am not a whiz. I would say my verbal is relatively strong. i scored a 690 in my first attempt and a 740 in my second attempt at the Gmat almost 1.5 months later.

I highly recommend TTP to prepare for the GMAT. It may take some time to complete everything but it's worth spending the effort to do all the missions including all the practice tests. Also, it's necessary to build strong foundations for quant to achieve a high score and be self reliant so that you don’t depend on explanations for tough questions for example - a speed time distance or compound interest question could be solved in multiple ways. By having a strong quant foundation you can try doing the question in different ways and figure out the way that works best for you, instead of just relying on one explanation and trying to apply only that method during the exam, as stress or a different style of question could make you get stuck but if you have strong foundations you’ll be able to think on your feet under pressure and workout another method to solve it and i do credit TTP for creating that base for me.
Also, do make use of their articles. Some of their tips regarding how to manage time, the streaks method and tips for verbal in their articles really helped me.

Highlights: 1) Clear explanations of concepts in both quantitative and verbal reasoning, along with video guides on approaching questions

2) Custom and diagnostic tests to help you attack weaker areas of your preparation and dial in your score.

The one consideration I would make is that, along with TTP, I did solve a lot of questions from GMAT club that were 700+ level (only for quant), official guide questions and historical GMAT advanced guide questions for more practice. However I did these questions untimed and my time management was developed via TTP tests and official mocks. Whether or not this is necessary comes down to your personal preparation and ability to afford additional material and time.
