I had two courses with Manhattan GMAT. The first one was the online course with Stacey Koprince. Before the course, I took the GMAT and scored 550 - I quickly realized that I had been out of school for quite some time! My goal was to learn the basics and get introduced to the GMAT through that course, and it was an excellent introduction for me.
After the course, I studied for a couple of months. At that point, I could score about 600. I knew that I needed a customized classes, so I had about ten sessions with Stacey and eventually scored a 690! I think this score would not have been possible for me without Stacey for a couple of reasons:
1. Expertise - she knows in an out of the world of GMAT. She has seen all sort of questions, and as soon as she looks at one, she knows the common traps.
2. Dedication - the private tutoring is hourly and is expensive. Stacey was beyond generous with her time with me, and I cannot thank her enough for that. She made sure that my questions are answered in each session before we ended our class. Also, she responded to my lengthy emails all the time, and she provided very detailed answers.
3. Flexible teaching style - I enjoyed Stacey's teaching styles because I think that she is very flexible to my needs. Her articles are amazing sources of insights about everything related to the GMAT.
She went above and beyond what I had paid to make sure that I have gotten the value out of my classes. She checked upon me between our classes and gave me motivation and positive energy when I was stressed and tired. Overall, an excellent instructor who truly cares about her students' success.

I signed up for this course with some hesitation for how much this would help me. I was scoring roughly around 650-670 on practice tests before beginning the course, with my goal just to get to 700. But man, did the course exceed my expectations!

The course does a great job of laying out what you should expect for the test, which is great for those with little to no idea what's on the GMAT. It takes you through each of the various question types for each topic, breaking down various strategies to approach each one. This is ideal as not everyone learns the same, so you can find the method best suited to you and your strengths. Even if you are familiar with the GMAT or are scoring pretty high, the various tips and strategies will provide you with opportunities to bump up your score. Beyond just tips and strategies, it also provides the foundation of knowledge you will need to do well.

Stacey was a fantastic teacher who was both engaging and extremely patient. Even though you are part of a class, she makes the time to get to relate to each and every one of you and she is never to busy to help you out. She understands the concepts extremely well and delivers the class in an understandable and concise manner.

I signed up for MGMAT’s private tutoring services after failing 10-20 point short of breaking the 700 mark. Since I have gone through most of the materials and tests myself and consider myself pretty well-versed at them, I was looking for guidance more on my approach and mindset than the actual content.

On our first session, Sarah stated a very important point that shifted my mindset. She mentioned that GMAT emphasizes on one’s decision making skills as much as it does an individual’s knowledge on the materials. GMAT is a test against perfectionist; to do well on the test, one has to be able to give up questions, the same way a good executive decline projects with only average return, and make educated guess, as what business owners do daily. This has a profound impact on my approach to the test – instead of thinking giving up/ guessing questions as a last resort, I now think of that as one of my testing strategies to preserve my mental energy for other questions.

Another great point that Sarah made was on my problem solving approach in quant. She mentioned GMAT wants us to simplify problems and to break them down, not to make things bigger. Therefore, think factorization, not multiplication. This single twist in my approach has helped me in numerous questions, especially in DS.

On top of that, Sarah taught me some techniques on making an educated guess. And it is also helpful to go through my approach on each question with her, so that she she can pinpoint any concept mistakes or point out ways to fine tune my approach.

Overall, I believe working with Sarah is significant in raising my score through the 700 mark. I will definitely recommend her to anyone looking into GMAT private tutoring.

I had 9 week online courses with Stacey Koprince and she was immensely helpful during the sessions and even until my 3rd re-rake. She was always sharing excellent, spot on advices and articles with me. And Ron, another guru of GMAT highly contributed to my success. His videos lifted my scores from 620 to 720; he boosted my verbal from 28 to 39. I had one tutoring session with him that helped me shift my focus to my weaknesses. Also MGMAT CAT Exam questions were top quality. After you master these tests, you can be sure to beat the gmat comfortably. I can`t be more thankful to MGMAT for their extraordinary service, top quality exams and books.

I was looking for a GMAT course and I chose Manhattan GMAT after reading good reviews online. I couldn’t be happier with my choice. Working long hours in finance, I really had to maximize my studying in order to get a good score.

My teacher was Stacey Koprince. She is dedicated, communicates the material very well and makes the entire experience enjoyable. I had difficulties managing my time properly during CAT exams and Stacey gave me several good tips on the matter. Also, she helped me a lot on how to approach +700 questions within 2 minutes.

Manhattan GMAT books are very good. They cover the material efficiently and will provide you with great insight about the exam. Also, the CAT exams are great at spotting your weaknesses and working on your timing.

Overall, I had a great experience with Manhattan GMAT and Stacey is a Fantastic teacher. Thanks to them, I improved my score and got 700 on the GMAT!!!!
