Reviews given prior to 4th September 2020 were given while the product was under the examPAL brand.

I am a non-native 45 year-old and had only 3 weeks left to prepare for the GMAT after a first trial score of 520, 22 years after completing graduation. The tailored course with systematic basics reviews and strategies, AI questions from diagnostic to optimization constitute altogether an efficient and fun tool. The PAL – Precise, Alternative, Logical – structure is also very handy and adapted to both verbal and quantitative sections. Also, the adapted dashboard and schedule were very useful and stimulating to keep going. Overall, after roughly 130h of preparation, I ended-up with a 640 GMAT score (+120 vs. starting point) which I believe could have been easily improved with one more week of study. I don't think any other tool or course would have helped me as much given the time constraint and budget I had "

Bonjour Arnaud,

Thanks for your feedback about the Economist. I'm in a similar situation as you are (french native as well).

I passed the GMAT last week and got a 510 after studying the all Manhattan prep books and having followed their 12 weeks review program (self studying). That is to say that I am struggling somewhere with both Quant (31) and Verbal (28).

Now I give myself two months to retake the GMAT and I'm looking to find a good tutoring program. My purpose is to get at least 680 (from 510).

Would you recommend the Economist for studying and make an increase in the score (+170)?

Best regards,
