We manually process all reviews, and if a review does not meet any of the prior criteria, the review will not be posted.

If you want to score a 700+, look no further. Going through the well explained Manhattan GMAT guides and watching Thursdays with Ron alone will help you score that 700+.

The Manhattan GMAT guides are detailed and explained in a way that is understandable to any beginner with rusty quant or verbal.

The Manhattan GMAT test analysis has the detailed level of analysis that no other test prep company offers. I also loved their OG tracker, which helped me pin point my weak areas and practice OG questions by topic.

Thursdays with Ron is a hidden gem that is absolutely free. Watch these sessions and you will no longer think about quant or verbal in the same way.

MGMAT and Ron Purewal are awesome! My score improved from 650 to a 710 just because of MGMAT and Ron.

In researching GMAT courses to take, I read many reviews and talked to a few people. Most people said Manhattan GMAT was the best, and the reviews were certainly excellent. I signed up, hoping it was worth the price.

It was. MGMAT's 9-week live course isn't cheap, but it is excellent. I highly recommend it if you are serious about getting a top score (I got a 740). The written strategy guides are good, the OG Archer is a must-have resource (the other online resources are pretty good, too), and my instructor was excellent. He was funny, enthusiastic, very smart, and very able to break down complex problems into bite sized chunks.

Ultimately, your score really depends on the work you put into studying for the test. With discipline, focus, and a few months of your life dedicated to studying, you can do very well on the GMAT. But having a top notch instructor and a solid curriculum really help too. If you're serious about getting an excellent score, I highly recommend Manhattan GMAT.

Verbal 47, one heck of a score !! Congratulations. I am finding MGMAT maths to be way too tough in the CATs. Could you please share your MGMAT CAT scores?

The live Manhattan Prep GMAT course was critical to my success and enabled me to ultimately score a 740. My instructor, Dhivya Arumugham was very well-prepared, articulate and knowledgeable. I would really recommend Dhivya as an instructor - she provides clear, concise explanations of problems, has a good sense of humor and brings a lot of energy to some mundane topics.

The course is very structured and incorporates quant, verbal, and test taking strategy each week. The online learning portal makes it very easy to manage your assignments weekly, track progress, and flag areas of weakness to review. I took the exam for the first time only two days after the course ended (which is not recommended) and scored a 690. After another month of review using the official guide and other quant drills, I scored a 740. I am convinced that Manhattan prep was key to my success and the price was well worth it.

They also provide additional resources including webinars about certain test areas, selecting the right schools for you, applications, and interviews. You have access to an individual review of a practice exam with an instructor to create a study plan. I also received a free half-hour session with an admissions consultant who helped tremendously and could answer questions about the specific schools to which I applied.

I started working with Mark after taking the Manhattan Prep 10 week course and scoring well below my goal (650 with goal of 700). After this, I decided to invest in private tutoring and started working with Mark Sullivan. I took the GMAT again, and scored 720 thanks to Mark (47 quant, 41 verbal). He quickly diagnosed my weaknesses, and then provided a clear plan to hit my goal. He focused on the biggest hitting items / content areas and devised a plan that I could manage with a full time job.
Outside of providing excellent tutoring services during my paid sessions, Mark was always available to respond to emails and provide feedback on practice tests. I never felt like I was “on the clock” – if we ran slightly over the time allotment, I didn’t feel that he was rushing to end the session. Mark was really a source of positivity and made me feel confident going into the test.
Very highly recommend Mark for anyone needing personalized tutoring!!! Just wish I’d started working with him from the beginning.

I took a "live online" accelerated offering of the Manhattan Prep GMAT course, and it was money well-spent. It was quite a quick turnaround from starting the course to taking my test--9 class sessions were packed into 4 weeks (Wednesdays & Sundays), and I took my exam 3 days after the final class. However, over that time I saw a 60-point improvement from my first CAT to my test. The online format was great because it allowed me to log into class from my home or on the road, but the "live" aspect helped keep me accountable--there were definitely cold calls! Gregg really helped me focus on content and tricks that would yield great improvement in my results!

I took a GMAT prep class at Manhattan Prep with Laurel Hanson in late 2017, and highly recommend the course. Laurel is a fantastic teacher and makes what could be a very dry course fun. She's smart, patient, and has a ton of easy tricks that help not only with learning the material (which most students haven't encountered since high school), but also with timing (which, for a lot of people, is the hardest part of the GMAT). The books you receive when you sign up for the course are extremely helpful as well, and make high-quality studying after the course has finished entirely doable.

I took an online course with Noah Teitelbaum and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. With his help I was able to get into my target school. I literally cannot think of a better guide to help me navigate the dynamic, and often bewildering, waters of the GMAT. He not only numbed some of the pain of studying but also made the process notably enjoyable. I even laughed a lot more than I thought I would. In general, he enhanced the way I now approach test taking. I HIGHLY recommend Noah and the Manhattan Prep online resources. Manhattan Prep provides a ton of resources to help you prepare. I was absolutely lost when I took that first practice test. I went from not even knowing what the GMAT was to achieving my goals. Thank you Noah and Manhattan Prep for all of the help and guidance!

I would highly recommend taking the Manhattan Prep class with Ryan McGorman. He was captivating, adapted to all ability levels, and was always available by email for questions outside of class. He taught us a lot of good tips and tricks for time saving on math problems. Additionally, he gave us a lot of great strategy tips for maximizing our scores.

As for Manhattan Prep, all of the online resources were very helpful, especially the yellow pad technique! The course was well designed and I liked that we did math AND verbal in every class, so our brains didn't get too fatigued looking at the same type of problem for 3 hours. The CAT exams tended to be harder than my actual GMAT, so I felt confident while taking the exam.

I took the GMAT prep class with Mike Morgan as the instructor. He is a great teacher and engages the class when he teaches the content and gives good advice and tips for approaching questions. He is also available to answer questions that you have via email or after class.

The course was helpful in learning some GMAT test taking tips and approaches. After taking a few practice tests and doing the OG problems online in the Navigator, I would recommend reviewing them using their tracker and assessment reports. They help you identify your area of focus.

Manhattan Prep gives you the resources and tools to succeed but ultimately, it is up to you to take the time to prepare for the test. You also need to know what your goal is and be proactive about how you can reach that your ideal score.

I took a 9-week GMAT course with Eric at the beginning of 2018. I had decided to not only study and take the GMAT, but also applied for a few part-time MBA programs at the same time, so during this period, I had to put in a lot of hard work, dedication and discipline. Eric was a great resource. He motivated our class and always had some piece of advice that we could use in our studies. You do need to put in the time as well but Eric helps along the way and I would recommend using the tips he provides even though it is more work on top of the Manhattan Prep homework load. My first score was a 530 after finishing the class, and Eric warned us our first live GMAT will not be as great as we hope, so I kept on with the studies, using the tips that Eric provided, while also keeping the mindset that this isn't the end of the world. After one month, I retook the GMAT and raised my score to 640! If it weren't for Eric, Manhattan Prep and my GMAT study group, I would probably not have reached that score, so I'm pretty darn happy so I highly recommend taking Eric's class.
