Eternally grateful to Math Revolution,
It goes without saying that the GMAT is an extremely difficult exam to master not only because you are being tested on convoluted concepts but also because the test is forcing you to make executive decisions on a time crunch, requiring you to have the guts to make an educated guess and move on to the next question. This is much easier said than done. When you are put in this position, it's not just that easy to pick an answer and move on. You are tempted to give all your best to every single problem you are encountering, because for God's sake, the test isn't cheap enough to take repeatedly. And even though you know that the GMAT does not call for 100% accuracy, but for time management, instinctively, you want to answer all the questions correctly because you want that +700 score.
With decades of experience with the GMAT, Max and Math revolution (MR) team understand this point very well. That's why Math Revolution(MR) provide the great solutions of tackling the GMAT questions in a very uniuqe way with time-saving and accuracy. MR's philosophy and methods are extraordinary and different from those of other online learning platforms or private institutions. Anyone math guru can teach you about theorems, formulas, equations, etc. But not anyone can teach you tricks and tips to be successful on the GMAT because it does not just require mathematical skills. It requires logic and much more than that.
Time management is the key to success on the GMAT. While proving you all the tools to be successful on the GMAT, MR eaches you how to decipher important questions that you ought to answer correctly from less important questions that are just designed to drag you down. Additionally, there is what's called "Key questions (key topics)". If your goal is to score 49 or higher on the quantitative part, you definitely want to get these questions correct. In the lessons, MR also teaches you how to distinguish these questions. Finally, what can be a huge time saver is Max's Variable approach for DS questions. This technique is proven to truncate your time spent on DS questions. It is also amazing that some geometry questions can even be solved within a matter of seconds. I highly recommend you conquer the quantitive section of the GMAT. It will save you time and money, leading you to Q49-51! Thank you Max and MR team!

Last week, I took GMAT for the third time and scored Q50. Since I majored in Legal Studies and am not much of a number person, quant section seemed to be the biggest obstacle to MBA. But, after studying Variable approach and IVY approach, I was convinced that I could get Q50~51 on the quant section as long as I get used to those approaches. Indeed, at the real exam, I heavily relied on the variable approach, which turned out to be the right choice. Additionally, tips that Max Lee emphasize are very intuitive and still very important things that I tried to apply to every question. So, if you are aiming for Q50~51, just believe in the approaches and tips by the Math Revolution team.

I normally don't write very many reviews, but felt the need to write this one. I want to start out my saying that I struggled a LOT with the GMAT. I first started out by taking the MGMAT course in Fall 2018, and took my first test in January of 2019. I received a score of 650, with a Quant score of 43. Naturally, I was disappointed and wanted to retake the exam. Just as background, I've never struggled too much with math, so I was a little surprised at my score (goes to show you how different the GMAT is from a standard test!).
I was referred to Hee Jean at Math Revolution by a close friend of mine from banking. I signed up for the private tutoring sessions as I wanted to really pinpoint my weaknesses and understand where I could improve. Hee Jean is truly the MOST patient person you will ever meet, and also the brightest. He always knew a shortcut to every problem (this is the trick of the GMAT!), and his explanations were always extremely clear. He also sends you organized notes from your sessions. On top of that, he is truly always available for a question and for scheduling sessions, and as someone who was in a pretty time-intensive job, it was a relief to be working with someone who always had time for you.
I took the GMAT again in July 2019 and scored a 49 in Quant on the test! I was happy with this score, but still felt like I could do better. I took a break from the GMAT (I was pretty worn out) for about a year, and in June 2020 I reached out to Hee Jean to ask him for some additional help. This is where I was really impressed with Math Revolution. Even after almost a YEAR, Hee Jean responded to my email in less than a day and reinstated my access to the Math Revolution website (which, by the way, has AMAZING resources that I went through with a fine-toothed comb) for free. He offered his help if I had any questions while I went through the materials again to freshen up my memory. I ended up taking the GMAT for the last time in July 2020, and scored a 50 on Quant.
I can't say enough good things about Math Revolution - going from a 43 to a 50 definitely takes work, but Hee Jean WILL get you there. I'm so glad I took my friend up on this recommendation (he also had an amazing experience with Hee Jean) and I cannot recommend this class more. Do the private tutoring sessions - it is worth the money (and it's cheaper than all of the other services!) and Hee Jean is very cognizant of your time and is VERY efficient with the time you have allotted for the session.
Overall, I am thrilled with my score and owe it very much to Math Revolution and especially Hee Jean. Thank you so, so much Hee Jean!!!!

Very helpful content for all quant focus topics, strategies to solve the tasks, timing advice, techniques to approach calculations, understandable videos - would recommend! I really liked how the topics were split, video were not too long, simulation tests and taska helpful to check current status within the course. Very good also the daily math tasks which kept me up on training daily. I took my first exam and scored Q50 which was just very amazing. Last time I took the mock-test I got a 33 and there were times when I scored less than 20. I studied with Math Revolution videos after work and it was well worth it! I could feel my math improving as it took less and less time to solve each problems. It took me 4-5 hours to finish the first prep paper you gave us which had 37 questions. But my problem solving speed grew exponentially faster. Your Variable approach for DS is really revolutionary in terms of solving problems quickly and easily, and it is big time saving. I highly recommend all students who are preparing for GMAT to take your course. I recommend them to trust their videos and follow their words. The tips you gave us while watching videos were especially useful. To be honest, I feel I have a lot of room for improvement in my math skills. But with your tips I was able to score such a high score.
For example there was one PS question. The logic was simple but the calculation was complicated and would have taken more than 5 minutes. So I boldly passed the question as I learned. Then the next question I got was a Key Question which I could solve in seconds using the methods you taught us. I respect your tremendous amount of experience on GMAT and it would be a fool of anyone to not listen to your teachings. I am grateful that I was able GMAT within such short period of time. I wish them all a very good luck in their future.

When I started to study for GMAT, my quant score was too poor to get an admission for the good business school. So I almost gave up GMAT. Meanwhile, one of my friend recommended the Max LEE's class on Math revolution.
First of all, his lecture is very easy to understand. Second, his lecture is very clear. Third, quant questions he has have very high hit rate on real GMAT exam.
After taking his class, my score had been remarkably improving. And finally I got an admission to Singapore Management University.
Max LEE is great teacher for GMAT. I would like to thank him again. He gave me the knowledge as well as insight for GMAT. I truly recommend him to all of you who are in trouble with Quant. No matter how poor score you currently have, he will help you to get a good score. And you will be able to go to great school. Good luck.

Dear math revolution all-in-one 51
First of all, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the privilege of being introduced to the course. When I started studying math, I was not really having troubles with the official guide level questions. However, real challenge appeared when I tried to solve prep exams under time constraint. I actually have found out that I was doing 'simple math' rather than problem solving. The 51 course actually helped me to think strategically to tackle the quant. questions logically and at the same time solve them at a faster speed than I could ever imagined. I would like to recommend this course to you all and I believe your choice will pay off not only from seeing your score improved but also from actually finding out that your problem solving and data centric way of thinking has improved.

My ambition to achieve an MBA degree drove me to take the GMAT, but I realized that everything set aside, maths would become a big obstacle to that objective. After multiple attempts, I realized that I needed help from professionals to see better results. Math Revolution was my choice, and I couldn't be more satisfied.
What I would like to emphasize about this program is that it doesn't simply teach maths - it teaches logic and the thought process that is essential in solving the quant problems that the GMAT provides. GMAT isn't looking for calculators; its looking for smart people who can apply logic in solving problems that challenge your normal ways of thinking. Math Revolution comes with perfect though process formulas such as the 'variable approach' for DS, and IVY approach for PS.
Thank you Math Revolution for enlightening me with the logic that not only solved my GMAT issue, but also changed me as a person when approaching problems and issues that require formidable logical thinking (another thing that most likely I will need as a person applying for an MBA)

I've never seen such a good math class just getting on-line course . Last time I got a terrible 33 score in Math. The way Max Lee solve the problem was awesome. I think your variable approach for DS is really revolutionary in terms of solving problems quickly and easily, and it's so unique as well. I highly recommend all students who are preparing for GMAT to take your course. I recommend them to trust their videos and follow their words. The tips you gave us while watching videos were especially useful. I feel I have a lot of room for improvement in my math skills. I was able to score such a high score,though.

The unfamiliarity of the first encounter with GMAT Math is thought to be similar to everyone. Obviously, GMAT Math require basic Math background which is learned at school, but I felt the solution was awkward. I started studying GMAT more than 20 years after I graduated from school, so I felt more pressure about Math. When I took the first sample test, the score was Q40. Because it was clear that my Verbal score would be limited because I was a non-native speaker, I had to set my Math score target above Q49. I needed the ability to solve problems in a short time. There were a lot of missing questions in a set time. Math solution all-in-one course helped me solve my low speed. First, I was able to identify the various types of problems in a short time. It helped me to understand the question quickly. Secondly, it suggested an easy way to solve a difficult problem. It wasn't an abnormal way of solving problems, it was a normal, but a quick way of solving problems that I didn't know. Third, the instructor's teaching ability was excellent. His ability to communicate , accurately analyze problems and present optimal solutions was high so that I could trust and follow him. As a result, I was able to score Q49 points during all three official tests. If I had a little more luck, I could get a Q50 score, too.

When I contacted Math Revolution about tutoring, I had just completed the GMAT exam and scored a 700. I had been studying very hard and was disappointed that my score wasn't where it needed to be. I want to target top US business schools which all have averages around 730.
When I got started with Math Revolution, and tutoring with Hee Jean, I knew that the course was going to power an improvement in my score. The variable approach to data sufficiency questions helped me move efficiently through questions and the IVY approach for problem solving cleared up some calculation errors I had been having.
But what really powered my improvement was a Q49 was the unrelenting focus on the core concept in GMAT (Integers, Statistics, Probability, Inequalities and Absolute Values. These questions come up again and again on the test and Math Revolution drilled these questions so thoroughly that I knew whatever the test could throw at me, I would be able to solve it.
I greatly enjoyed my sessions with Hee Jean as we went through topics together and he helped me understand concepts I was having problems with. I have no doubt that this tutoring drove a significant upside in my score.
I highly recommend the course and the tutoring to all of those who are seeking to gain that extra edge.
