710 to 760

When I first took the GMAT with no prep to establish a baseline for myself, I scored a 710. My friend had recommended I try out TTP, so I decided to purchase the 4-month course to give it a shot. From January 2023 to May 2023, I worked exclusively with the material TTP had offered. After taking official mocks 3-6 afterward, I scored 760s with Q range 50-51/V range 40-42/IR 8.

On the official GMAT, I scored a 760- Q50/V44/IR8. My average analytics on the course was 2hrs and 16 mins per day for 4 months; if you are capable of committing some time to study for the GMAT, I would 100% recommend TTP. Furthermore, I would even encourage you to pair this with other free resources to further enhance your learning. Although I exclusively used TTP, I don't see any drawbacks to pairing a powerful learning tool like TTP with other resources.

Strengths:

- Very high quality content
- Great UX/UI
- Supportive team

Would make the product better:

I dont really like TTP’s error log, it is not as easy to review question as the one I attach below

- I studied in 3 months using Manhattan and saw no improvement. I used TTP in 4 month and improved my score week over week from 600 to 740
- Started with fear for Verbal section, I became much more confident after completing TTP Verbal course. My CR and SC rate is always around 80-90% after using TTP. I heard TTP is also very good at Quant course
- Very detailed guidelines with tons of high-quality questions and explanations.
--- Very clear study roadmap, which shows you what you need to study, to review, to reflect before the test
---Very supportive team, Marty answered every one of my questions in half a day.

Would make the product better:

Sentence correction got into details not often tested. Would have appreciated a warning that it's fine not to get 100% of the Hard questions

Fantastic course for self-study. I used to improve my score from a 590 to 740 in 4 months time. It took me about 3 months to get through all the fundamental material and from there I started using a combination of TTP questions and official GMAT practice tests to get ready for the actual exam.
Their flexible program was great for someone who works in consulting and can have a varying schedule. They also have a calendar that helps you pace yourself (although I found that for me, alternating between verbal and quant throughout my study process allowed me to feel motivated and not get too overloaded with one topic). Also, they have great guidance on the best ways to study, such as not feeling the need to use the dry erase board right away until a month before taking the test.

I recommend it to all my friends starting the GMAT study process or ones that need to strengthen up in certain areas (especially in quant). Some other things to note are that the customer service is fantastic and they'll get back to you very quickly about any questions you may have.

Pretty much guaranteed path to a great score.

Strengths:

The course content is thorough, well explained, and comprehensive. The interface is really easy and pleasing to use--completing lessons and practice problems gives you a little dopamine rush. The practice and review tests are great, and the ability to create custom practice tests is invaluable.

Would make the product better:

Firstly, it's a colossal amount of content. I realize this is a feature, but it's hard for me to comprehend how someone could get through the course in four months. I did the six month course while not working full time and I still didn't finish it in the allotted time. Secondly, I wish the IR section had more questions or even practice tests. Despite having a good grasp of quant, I was frequently stymied by IR questions and didn't know how to practice and improve. Finally, there are some sections with attempts at humor that didn't click with me.

If you want a great score on the GMAT, TTP is a clear path to get there. I started studying with a solid grasp on verbal but really shaky quant skills. TTP's thorough, methodical process got me to a point where I felt really confident answering quant questions, and ultimately I scored higher on quant than verbal. For both quant and verbal, TTP does a great job of teaching you not just the topic, but also how to approach questions and eliminate wrong answers. By the time I was taking my practice tests, I was scoring highly and feeling confident in my knowledge. On test day I got surprisingly psyched out by the experience, but even while feeling really nervous and like I was doing poorly, I was still able to keep my eyes on the prize, keep moving, and secure a 760.

Even if you're already using some other prep materials, I'd highly recommend the \$1 trial so you can experience the custom practice tests with clear, detailed explanations. I found myself really missing these explanations when taking the official practice tests or using questions from other sources.

Amazing preparation product - no prior GMAT experience

Strengths:

Both the verbal and quantitative part of the course are well put together. I would say the core strength of the product is the helpful planning tool, ensuring that you have assignments for everyday, and the problem explanations given to each question.

Would make the product better:

Overall, I would say that the course covers all elements of the GMAT very well. However, towards the end, I felt that the really difficult questions of the quant section were not sufficiently covered in the problems of the TTP course. Obviously it is difficult to cover everything, but I would rather not have had to resort to GMATClub's forums for additional questions (despite it ultimately being very helpful).

The TTP course is extremely comprehensive, adequately covering all important aspects of a proper GMAT prep. I was especially nervous about how the verbal section of the GMAT would work, and I was delighted to learn that the course covers all elements. The video guides, course explanations, and problem reviews are all very helpful.

I had zero knowledge of the GMAT before embarking on my search for a preparation product. Despite TTP being the only one I've tried, I think it's safe to say that it was a great choice. The planning tool helped me with adjusting my daily life to the preparation, and was essential in ensuring proper balance between my job and prep.

Brilliant course!

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

Strengths:

Very extensive and in-depth. Covers virtually every topic on GMAT in a clear and concise manner. Also has a ton of practice questions that really help you reinforce what you have learned.

Would make the product better:

Honestly, cannot come up with much to improve. Maybe some more RC questions would have been nice. But still, this course has everything you might need.

This course really helped me study for the GMAT. I was intially worried about how to actually know what and how to study for the test. Through TTP, however, I did not have to worry about that and I could simply "trust in TTP" and focus on studying.

Each topic is explained very carefully and pedagogically, and the course also provides many different strategies on different types of questions, thereby eliminating a lot of uncertainty I usually experience when starting to solve a question.

Furthermore, the course is very easy since it is shows exactly what topic to study and in what order. Finally, TTP offers a ton of practice question, which is really fantastic since answering all of them (which you essentially do throughout the course) gives you a lot of confidence and reinforces your knowledge for the actual GMAT exam.

One recommendation I have is based on a personal mistake, and that is to give yourself a lot of time to study, maybe 4-6 months depending on how much you study each day. I gave myself 2,5 months and studied approx. 3 hours a day. However, I barely had time to complete the course before my exam, and as a result only did 2 practice exam prior to the GMAT. Having more time would definitely have been less stressful.

In short, I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone taking the GMAT, and thank you Scott and the team for creating such a great course!

Highly recommend TTP for GMAT success

Strengths:

- Extremely thorough and comprehensive: TTP starts at the most basic concepts for every topic, so no matter what your background is, it'll set you up for success. I've personally hated geometry since the 2nd grade and was especially concerned about this topic on the GMAT. Not only did TTP make me understand the concepts but it also made me actually LIKE geometry more and more as I went through the chapter. While it may seem annoying to have to learn the most basic concepts, I think this is what really ensures that you have an understanding so deep that you are able to tackle whatever question the GMAT throws at you.
- Expert help available around the clock: Although I didn't sign up for the live classes or personal tutoring, I was able to get all the help I needed from the TTP team. The experts help to break down the solutions for you when you're really stumped on a question. This was especially helpful for my Quant prep when I just could not wrap my head around a problem.
- Schedule and structure: Whether you're studying for the GMAT full-time or only have a few hours to spare each day, you're able to create a customized plan for yourself. The plan also adjusts as you go, so you don't have to worry about how to make up for a day you missed or how to get ahead when you've done a few extra lessons.

Would make the product better:

- Add at least 1-2 full-length practice exams. While the question bank is extremely thorough, taking a practice exam is still a unique experience and an important part of the prep for the GMAT. For me, this was the one piece of the puzzle that TTP was lacking.
- Make answer explanations less repetitive for the Verbal section. I have to admit that the thoroughness and comprehensive nature of the course is what led to my success on the GMAT... but it was still sometimes boring and frustrating to have to read through the RC explanations because of how long and repetitive they were. That being said, an easy solution to this is to just skim through the repetitive parts once you get a hang of the course.

When I was selecting a course, I chose TTP because it had great reviews and it was a relatively economical option. While I haven’t taken any other courses, so cannot speak to their effectiveness, I do think the TTP course gives you a great bang for your buck, and is definitely a more reasonable choice than some of the other courses out there.
Overall, the course is excellent and thorough. Even though I was studying from Asia, the TTP team responded quick enough to my queries that I never felt like I was waiting for a long time. If you truly trust and follow the full course, you can and will get a great score on the GMAT!

Strengths:

The biggest strength of this product is the attention to detail. Yes, the course is extensive, but it is for a reason. After every chapter, you gain a deeper understanding of the concepts tested and start to think like the GMAT question maker. Strongly recommend TTP for quants and for the foundation of verbal.

Would make the product better:

While it lacks a full length CAT mock test, it can always be purchased from GMAC.
Verbal questions/examples can be a little bit more tailored to GMAT style.

If you are in the hunt to find a great course, especially for quant, look no further. The quant modules are designed exactly to maximize your potential score and the chapters are well crafted. While the verbal questions/examples are designed specifically to test the concepts taught, they help lay the foundation and get you ready for OG. The calendar application is very helpful, and the whole team is very responsive. Shout out to Marty, one never feels like the verbal course is one sided.

Great UI, helpful error log, immediate response to queries, helpful articles in between the course and Scott's soothing voice make TTP a great product to invest in and to achieve your best possible score.

THEY LIE

Improvement 80 Points

Strengths:

Generally, the couse was really well stuructured, they give you tons of questions to practice on quant, although untill the time you begin to reach the end of the course you begin to forget the things you have taught for, and that`s because of the massivness of the course probably i guess.

Would make the product better:

Client orientation and more verbal tests, they lack so much on verbal. You cover one topic on quant, course gives you 300 questions to solve, you cover one topic in verbal, they give you 20 question to practice on.

So guys, all in all, i must say first time i did Gmat i only got 540, but after the course managed to get 620! But the thing is that before you purchase the course they promise you to return your money if you don`t get at least 110 point increase , which i clearly didn`t manage to do, but anyway got no return. Must say the cash return guarantee works only if you finish 100% of the course, and i finished 90% only as they say, but the 10% was just recommendations and Ir and AWa parts, which couldn`t just impact my score, which means i have finished their course,but anyway that was their reason(

The most horrible thing about the course is that they have 0 client orientation. I said them i don`t pretned for the return , though i practically finished 100% of the course , its so called learning phase with all the tests on Verbal and Quant. All i wanted from them was that they would give me some sort of discount, cause i hoped they would support their students, who spent 600\$ on the course, for which i got rejection. I know that eGmat for example just gives their course for several months for free for students who trusted them and still couldn`t get promised by them score, however the same policy doesnt work at TTP, they give no interest on the people who trusted them and its sad.

So, my recommendation guys, if you are stuck between eGmat and TTP, don`t you even think twice, eGmat will support you as opposed to TTP, which doesnt even keep its promise(score guarantee)

So guys, i realize that my claims about TTP nit giving me discount may sound for some of you brazenly, cause technically they are right and i am just crying, and so it be, but the undisputable fact is that, if you hope to get 110 point increase by finishing TTP, that`t not guaranteed as well as their money return promises.
