I found the Manhattan Prep test books and the overview of the GMAT that my instructor provided to be very helpful. I personally got more out of the books and the first class than I did the remaining eight classes, but everybody learns differently and I have a more independent learning style. That being said, my instructor (Keith) was great. He was supportive, patient, and encouraging. Even if I didn't find the class to be particularly helpful, I think access to an instructor is invaluable. If nothing else, purchase the Manhattan Prep Test Books and work through them on your own. I can't emphasize how helpful and manageable they were.

"VERIFIED SCORE" is written in front of this review. How in the world could you get 52 out of 51?
Unbelievable.

As someone who hadn't thought about grammar or geometry since high school, I really needed a refresher. Manhattan GMAT gives the appropriate structure and great teaching (take Isaac's class!). One thing I'd say is to do ALL the work. None of it should be optional.
The online tools and course materials were extremely thorough. The most useful tool was the ability to analyze your test results by question difficulty and topic - really helped me target my weakenesses. I also felt the class prepared me mentally for the test - not just content.
The post-course assessment was also extremely helpful in determining my plan to take the test based on my previous exams. I felt discouraged because I hadn't broken past 670 on any diagnostic, but my instructor encouraged me to keep studying and I ended up getting a solid score on test day.

Kim was well prepared for every class and shared insights that were unbelievably helpful for my performance. She made us feel comfortable asking questions but held us to a high standard in terms of keeping pace with the class. The class was the perfect length and helped me feel confident to take the GMAT 4 weeks after my last class ended. I've taken other courses like this in the past and none worked or made me feel as prepared as Kim did. Manhattan has great materials and both verbal and quant supplementary guides so you never run out of content to practice with.

Really impressive curriculum. Amazing how I was able to walk in with such a mountain of expectations about the GMAT, then walk out knowing the exact strategies I'd need to succeed.

Having the books alongside the classwork means that, even if I missed something during instruction, there was a bible next to me to pull info from. Plus, their online tools made the Official GMAT Guide far less intimidating. I sampled three instructors, including my Primary Teacher, Matt Brandon, and they all were approachable and energetic.

Now, if you're not wiling to put in the hours on homework each week, this class isn't worth it. They can't train you, they can only teach you how to train yourself.

Everyone I know who's attended a great b-school chose Manhattan Prep for their GMAT studying. I was glad to see find out their recommendation was correct.

I purchased the verbal course from Manhattan Prep as I saw most room for improvement in that area and gave myself 4 weeks to study intensely. I scored a 99 percentile in the verbal - despite thinking quant was my strong suit.

In short - MPrep is absolutely worth it - you get a complete set of materials and their practice exams prepare you VERY well for the real test. The tutorials on timing and bucketing questions were worth their weight in gold.

in more detail -
The content is very straight to the point and focused on the actual test questions (as opposed to teaching endless grammar rules). MPrep also focuses on the most popular GMAT question types and content (a lot of other sources do not prioritize the material in this way, leading to a highly inefficient studying experience)
The interface is very easy and entertaining, the mix of video content and textbook work is good and keeps you engaged

Whitney was a fantastic instructor and was readily available both in and out of the classroom. Moreover, it was clear she really enjoyed teaching the course and brought a lot of energy into every lesson. The overall course was easy to follow and well organized. I was especially impressed with their online portal which contained a myriad of resources, particularly the practice exams. In addition to learning about the exam question types and how to best tackle them, I think the most important aspects of the course were the strategies involved in taking the GMAT. I was very happy with the results of the course, and I am so thankful to have found them!

I had an absolutely incredible experience with Manhattan prep. Recommended by a friend, I walked into the process with no idea of what to expect. The course was incredibly well planned, and the combination of books, online learning, and in class learning was a perfect trio for me.

The online portion can't be understated - the ability to review lessons, and have rich explanations to all of your questions from the OG isn't something I found in other study guides. They've obviously taken a lot of time and consideration to put together a program that prepares you for all aspects of the GMAT, and the admission process in general.

Elaine was an absolutely incredible tutor, who made studying for the GMAT as fun as possible, while also helping me to move from a 600 on my first practice test to a 750 on my GMAT. Go with Elaine - you won't regret it.

I really enjoyed my 9 week prep course through Manhattan Prep. I was completely unfamiliar with the GMAT prior to starting the course and relied on its materials almost completely for my studies. My instructor, Marc, was so accommodating and one of the best instructors I have ever had. He took time with each student individually as our class was only about 8 people. We got high quality instruction, the best materials, and a lot of one on one tutoring which I believe led to my score. They focus on the quantitative aspect a lot. The best part of the course is the materials they provide you. The practice test really help you hone your skills and identify your weaknesses.

I would highly recommend the online 9-week Manhattan GMAT Prep Course. First, there were multiple time/day slots to fit my schedule. Second, the classes were extremely well run. It was run by 2 instructors - one was leading the class the other managing the forum and answering questions in the side bar. It was super effective. The class was extremely interactive. I was worried it would not be interactive and I'd get distracted to do other things. However, you couldn't take a break just like a real in-person class - you were engaged in classes, quizzes, etc. Also, I appreciated the focus on strategies and not just content. I tried the picking up a book and studying on my own. But it didn't get me very far. I cracked over 700 with the help of Manhattan GMAT's classes and strategy help.

I took the ManhattanPrep classes early in 2016 and high recommend the course. The classes and material were great and helped me study to take the GMAT and get a score over 700. The books and online material are very streamlined so you study in the most efficient manner and don't waste time learning or doing things that won't help. Our instructor, Christine, was a lot of fun. Make no mistake though, the study and homework workload is heavy. I'd say 10-20 hrs per week.

Their website was particularly useful. They have online classes that cover the class content and can also be used for review. The interactive classes have excellent exercises to help with the AWA and IR. And finally they have the online CATs and a system to take the individual questions/tests online, review answer explanations and analyze your performance on specific types of questions so you can work on improving weak areas.
