Outstanding teacher and company

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I took a classroom-style GMAT prep course in Cambridge, MA during the summer of 2018. My teacher, Josh Yardley, was fantastic! I'd recommend him in a heartbeat. He is extremely knowledgeable about all of the question types on the GMAT. He took the time to understand each student's struggles and made sure that each explanation was a learning opportunity. His explanations were clear and succinct. I gained a lot from my self-studies, but my time in the classroom with Josh was invaluable.

Manhattan Prep offered many resources for study material - paper books and eBooks, extra question banks, ability to sort questions by difficulty, video guides, etc. They are a very professional company and I highly recommend them!

Verbal was bomb but Quant didn't connect the dots well enough

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

Admittedly, I'm someone who hasn't practiced math in a really long time and for full disclosure, my studies focused much more on the books post-course. But, I thought the verbal books were amazing, straight-forward, were very comprehensive. My verbal score literally doubled after spending minimal time reviewing the verbal books, but, to be fair, I think verbal was always going to be my strength. The math, for me, felt like it offered a lot of "rules" but wasn't helpful in terms of implementing the rules in a way that was effective for the adaptive/logic-over-math skills nature of the test. The practice questions after each section weren't in any way geared toward the test, so if you dedicatedly do them, it's just not going to help that much. I just feel like MGMAT's approach to quant isn't holistic enough. It was much more about trying to strengthen your math foundation rather than strongly coupling that with a strong foundation for approaching this adaptive test, a test which I think few of us have encountered before. My suggestion: definitely buy the verbal books. Pass on the math. Course was fine but I probably would have done another (and have since).
