I was a student athlete who studied Business and did not care much about math and science back in college. When I first took the gmat, I got a 44 on quant section and thought I needed some help. So I signed up for one of the Math Revolution's classes. After going through all of the courses, I took the test again for the 2nd time and got a 49! Max's variable approach is revolutionary, and anyone can learn it by simply practicing it. I highly recommend Math revolution classes as they are easy to follow and it is the most efficient way to score 49 or higher in my experience.

From 460 to 720

At first, I didn't believe that this course make me have 700+ score, but I finally ended GMAT test with 51/38. I worried about GMAT math, since I heard ,from my co-workers, that GMAT math is more difficult than GRE. However, after participating in this course, I'm more confident than ever in math.

He teaches how to approach math problems. Through the approach he lectures, I believe all students can solve all the questions.

The main point of this course is a 'variable approach', approach that reorganizes the question and determines the variables. Doing so, you can match the conditions' and questions' variables. You can save time and easily check the answers.

Thank you, Lee and all the friends.

Just as a little background, I have always been somewhat stronger at Quant than Verbal throughout my education as well as the GMAT. After some studying, I gave my first attempt at the GMAT around September 2015 and scored a 610 (Q47, V27). Although Q47 is a respectable score, I knew I had to take it to the next tier to achieve my goal score. With the high reviews of MathRevolution, I gave it a shot.

From the beginning, MathRevolution is a fantastic resource as I was able to cover all the basic fundamentals of each topic. There is so much information that you cover that you won't miss anything. The program also has so many tricks that I was not aware of which were often time cutting solutions to the problem. This is very important especially for problems you can't seem to find a shortcut to on test day because it gives you extra time to "work" the problem out to get the right answer which is more time consuming. MathRevolution also does an great job differentiating between normal problems and the 50-51 level problems which are the difference maker in scoring 49 or higher. There are only a certain amount of concepts tested which are of this difficulty and once you practice them enough, it becomes easily solvable within 3 minutes. The important thing is to notice these questions so you do not fall into the trap answer that most do.

The most impressive thing was how responsive their customer service was. Jin always responds to any questions or concerns you may have within 24 hours. This is very important especially for questions regarding practice problems because it was important to me to get an answer while the problem was fresh in my head.

A important note is that this course does take some time to get through and to master each section. Of course, this is the case for any program or self study if you plan on getting a high score in Quant. If you are truly aiming for a Quant score of 49 or higher, it is important to understand each section thoroughly until you can recognize the type of problem, understand how to solve it quickly, and execute without making silly mistakes. Also, it is important to go through the OG problems inside and out. MathRevolution goes through each problem with their method on how to solve OG problems which is a fantastic resource since it is the best problems you can find.

All in all, MathRevolution will help you conquer Quant section of the GMAT in a one stop course and uses all the resources necessary, including OG. I highly recommend this course and their great customer service. Remember that conquering Quant is down to practice. I must have practiced somewhere between 1000 to 1500 problems through my preparation. After finishing this course, I never scored under a Q49 on any of the GMATPrep or VertiasPrep exams for the Quant section. I was ultimately able to raise my Quant from the low 40’s on my initial mock exam to a Quantitative 50 on the real GMAT.

For my quant preparation, I completed a number of online courses, but by far Math revolution prepares you the best for GMAT. Math revolution questions are exhaustive and they cover each and every topic. Not only the questions will prepare you but also will train your mind to think analytically to solve all and any kind of quant questions. The "Common Mistake Types" taught by this course is a must know for anyone who is targeting a score of 51 in Quant. Also Lee, Jin and team are the best. Their turnaround time for all the doubts/ concern resolution is impeccable. All in all a must required course for acing the GMAT Quant.

My first GMAT Quant score with Math revolution was 49. I took the test again after 2 months and scored 50 ! The course structure, content and questions are up to date with the actual GMAT. Most of the other prep company's ( trust me , I subscribed to more than two online prep companies) quant contents are outdated. They are good for practice but they are no way close to the actual GMAT questions types. That's where Math revolution wins over all. A combination of OG and Math revolution will surely help anyone to achieve a score of 49 and above. The Math revolution team is absolutely brilliant. The turnaround time on questions related to the content is amazing. Thank you Math revolution for everything ! You guys really rock !!

I took the Short Cut 51 course about 1 month before my exam and it has raised my Quant score by 4-5 points in a short time.

Math revolution has a unique approach to GMAT quant that is based on their own extensive research on essential topics such as integer properties, statistics, and common mistakes (eg. C trap). According to the guys at Math Revolution, questions in these areas are usually given more importance in the scoring system, and I can say that I did notice similar trends in the actual exam and on GMAT Prep Exam packs.

Besides, for the price of $79, the shortcut 51 course is perhaps the most comprehensive Quant focused course you will find out there!

This review is for: Math Revolution Private Tutoring
Location: Online
Taught by: Jae Baek

The Math Revolution team has been invaluable in my GMAT preparation, and it was through their hard work and dedication that I was able to increase my quant score from 39 to 50 which raised my score from a 680 to 740!


I had already been preparing for the GMAT several months before I went to Math Revolution and had completed the entire Manhattan Prep Interact course, worked with two different private tutors from Manhattan Prep, completed the entire Veritas Prep Live online course, twice, and all of the accompanying course materials for both programs to no avail.


I am an English Literature and Language major and have worked as an English teacher for the last 5 years, so the Verbal section really did not give me much difficulty, but what set Math Revolution apart from Manhattan Prep and Veritas is that Math Revolution simply taught me all the math I had forgotten since middle school.


In my experience Manhattan Prep taught me a lot of little tricks that I could use for specific questions and Veritas taught me to “logic” my way through math, but both of these approaches were exceedingly exhausting and only provided middling results. For the rest of you Liberal Arts majors, in my experience there is nothing more difficult than 8th grade Algebra on the GMAT so don’t shy away from the calculations. It is much easier to write down a basic algebraic equation than to “consider what it means to be a multiple of 2.”


It is doubtful that anyone coming to Math Revolution will come with a lower ability to do calculations than myself, and the benefit I got from Jae, my tutor, was his ability to very simply and efficiently show me how to create and solve the basic equations the GMAT requires. The man has the patience of a saint as he steps you through the math and reasoning behind the math. Very often I would look down at my half-page-long calculation and compare it with his two-line calculation on the board, and more often his explanations were infuriatingly simple, but that is exactly why you hire a GMAT tutor to explain and show you how to answer the questions in the most simple and efficient way. By the end of our tutoring sessions, I was solving most questions at or under a minute.


A big component of Math Revolution’s teaching philosophy is reviewing and resolving. I would typically resolve a missed question 3-4 times until the steps and the calculations were permanently etched in my memory, and since the type of questions the GMAT tests is quite narrow, you start to see patterns emerge as you continuously review. While my previous tutors and programs also stressed review, none of them held me as accountable for the review as Math Revolution.


I’m not going to lie, for me it was hard work. At one point I was doing an entire practice set a day while reviewing and resolving all of the missed questions from the previous day, but for all of the work I put in I know the Math Revolution team put in more. I hope that your GMAT journey is not as arduous as mine was, but know that whatever effort you put into your studies, Math Revolution will match and exceed. Thank you Jae, Max, and JH for your dedication and reassurance throughout my GMAT journey; I could not have achieved my goal without you all.

I scored 610 ( 43 in Maths ) in June and decided to prepare again , I was looking to extra help in Maths since I wanted higher score. After signing up for All-In-One 47 Course , I finished up videos in 15-20 days and upgraded to All-In-One 51 course . Math revolution is a notch above all the material available in GMAT Maths today . Their material is totally based on official guides and has different teaching methodology than others. Increased my score till 46-48 in Mocks and hope to take exam soon with high score.
Math revolution team is of great help and responsive to emails I sent at any time.

Okay, So I would first like to say that learning the variable method and the IVY approach made by Max Lee to be the best thing I did for preparing for the GMAT. The first test I took I got a 42 on quantitative and I did not know what to do. I got 42 for both GMATprep tests and on the real test. I learned about mathrevolution and read the reviews and testimonials to verify if the courses offered were legit. Well, after studying with mathrevolution with their helpful strategies and videos explaining the methods to approach problems. I took the test 2 months later now fully confident with the quant section. I finished the quant sections with almost 10 minutes left leaving me ample time to refresh for verbal. By making quant section into no more than a warm-up I was able to approach the verbal section with vigor. I scored a 750 on my gmat. 50 in quant and 41 in verbal. In just 2 months I made a 42 into 50. If that isn't something I don't know what is. Trust me. Max Lee is legit, if you are struggling the quant section go to mathrevolution.com right now. You will not be disappointed

Friends,

Today I took the GMAT and scored a 710 (Q50, V35). I can't quite describe the emotion, but I have a lot of gratitude for the people who have helped me along the way.

I started my journey over 6 months ago. I practice with the classic with Manhattan books + took the live online course. It got me to a 650...but I needed something else to get me over the hump.

Quant
I started at a Q42, then eventually moved to the Q46/Q47 level (took 4 months to get here). I plateaued. I just felt like there wasn't enough time to tackle this section... But people all over the world were getting their dream scores, so why couldn't I? I had to change my approach. My confidence was low, but I was willing to put in in the time to get it right. One day I was practicing a very difficult math problem and I couldn't understand how to solve this problem in less than 2 mins. I was like there is no way... I stumbled on an answer from Math Revolution. They approached this problem through their proprietary ivy approach - i mean it was far from conventional standards, but it allowed one to solve the problem within 1.5 mins. I went on their site and gave their free videos a shot. I sent a few emails to their customer service team and they were extremely responsive. They had this genuine willingness to help students, which stood out.

Within a day I bought the Short-Cut 51. I knew if I improved a couple of things with PS and heavily improved my accuracy for DS, then I could reach my goal of Q49/50. I went hard on the DS. I watched all the videos on my iPhone and it changed the way I approached DS problems forever. Their variable approach and extremely unique and efficient when you're in a time crunch. For example, on my real exam I was left with 6 mins and had 8 problems to go! I finished. Why? the variable approach. I could see through the tricks the test taker was throwing at me - I can't quite articulate this well, but you have to trust their approach and you'll see the results. When I saw the 50 on the screen I was amazed. Math Revolution team, thank you. Thank you for creating a very innovative approach to tackling the math section.

Verbal
I started at a v26 and eventually got a V35. What changed? e-GMAT. Just trust their study plan and you will achieve your target score. I didn't get enough time to complete the course, but it helped a TON (esp. when it came to SC and CR). The course taught me to trust the process and once you trust the process everything will start coming together. I had a specific framework of how I would approach SC, CR, and RC problems. I just stayed true to that.

Friends, don't give up. It's tough, I know. Stay persistent and focused. This test isn't about the number of hours you throw at it but it's about knowing the basics very very well and having the confidence and belief that you can beat the test. The moment you tie this test's results to your self-worth, you'll tunnel yourself. Release that pressure and you'll achieve your goal.
