This is hands down the perfect course if you are struggling with quant (or suspect that you will struggle) for the GMAT. It is extremely thorough, comprehensive and detailed for you to gain confidence solving every single problem you can encounter on the GMAT. I liked the structure in which they make you master each section/type of problem before going to the next. That really allowed me to be confident in each section and that percolated to test day.

Beyond serving as the best practice tool I encountered, it also ideal to learn concepts from zero, or help with concepts you might have been struggling with. For example, I was really bad at Combinations and Permutations, but after TTP it was one of my strongest areas, the same with Geometry. The videos are detailed enough for you to easily understand and master the skills needed for each type of problem regardless of your level of expertise.

In summary, this is the only course I'd recommend for quant and would save any potential candidate lots of time and money to start their quant training with TTP. Plus, Jeff and Scot were always helpful answering any questions (academic or test related) I had during the process. TTP is 100% worth your money and more importantly your time.

Hey guys. I'm sure you've all had the opportunity to perform much needed due diligence on all the various test prep offerings on the market. I have as well - and to be honest, I've tried it all. I began my GMAT studies with courses such as MGMAT, and later even tried out the Economist GMAT review. However - none of these courses were as comprehensive for the Quant section of the exam as TTP was! TTP's curriculum taught me to think more critically - Within a day, I was already rewiring my thinking process. I was looking for patterns, cues in the question stem and no longer simply just "solving the problem".

Additionally, I highly recommend the private tutoring sessions with Jeff if can make the commitment. I have tried private tutoring sessions with other test prep services, but none of them were as effective as the format, and pedagogy of my sessions with Jeff. Instead of many "Q&A sessions" that I had been previously accustomed to, Jeff threw me in the deep end every single session and tested my true knowledge of the material. Every session was spent effectively drilling down a specific topic, until it was near mastery.

Finally, I improved my quant score from a 45 to a 49. No
One can help you obtain the score that you want/need. However, the right tools can make or break your chances for success.

I am over the moon after pressing that final submit button on my GMAT test just a few weeks ago. After signing up for the test months ago, I had no idea where to begin studying. I opted for the free trials to a few of the programs out there, but after checking out Target Test Prep, I knew I found the course I needed to help me work specifically on Quant. I have a background in a reading/research/writing intensive field, so I didn't feel like I needed as much help in the Verbal section, but have not taken a math class since 2005. After going through all of the lessons and problems on TTP, I was able to go from a decade without math, to scoring a 47! Thanks Target Test Prep!

My first attempt at the GMAT was after using Kaplan's GMAT 800: Advanced Prep for Advanced Students book. I found it to be helpful with verbal, but the quant section was somewhat lacking.

Taking the GMAT for the second time, I wanted to place more focus on the quant section. A friend referred Target Test Prep after using it for the GRE. I signed up in September but didn't start studying until early/mid October. I would study for about 5-10 hours a week dependent on my schedule.

I loved the interface and detailed explanations for every question. Having the option to review easy, medium and hard questions also helped me gauge how well I understood the lesson. The structure of the material also follows a very logical path and the dashboard clearly shows your progress throughout the course. At first I went through every lesson and quiz, but as the test got closer I started to focus only on the lessons that were indicated as weak areas on my diagnostic test (which is also a great feature to have).

The week of the GMAT I did a few of the larger review tests. An important aspect of my score below is that I did not review verbal at all (outside of 2 full length tests) between the two dates I took the GMAT.

My goal for this second test was to break 700. I needed to feel more confident going into the test and effectively use my time the day of. TTP delivered on both fronts. While my quant score increased less than my verbal did, (Q44-47, V37-42) I wouldn't have gotten a 720 without TTP. I started off with the quant section and felt far more relaxed this time around. Moving into Verbal knowing quant was behind me (and likely better than my first GMAT) was a huge asset and my confidence only grew. I am very happy with my score and would encourage anyone who wants a thorough amount of of practice questions, quizzes and lessons to use TTP.

This course is great for anyone who wants to really deep dive into the underlying math concepts tested on the GMAT. I spent about 2 months to complete all of the chapters and approximately 1500 practice problems. I used other test prep as well but nothing came close to really "dumbing" down the math concepts for me as well as Target did. I will say that Target isn't the best for teaching test-taking strategies for the GMAT, but it is a great program to complete before doing other test prep so you have a solid foundation of quant knowledge before learning how to guess and improve timing.

I really loved how TTP prepared me for the quant section of the GMAT. I hadn't studied most of the math-related coursework for 6-7 years, and I was concerned that I had forgotten many of the basic concepts that I needed to get through the GMAT quant section. TTP helped me go from a quant score of 46 to 50 by helping me relearn those basics in a comprehensive, easy-to-digest format.

TTP's teaching methods were more comprehensive than some of the other at-home courses I had tried. I really valued the opportunity to do all the learning on my own, while also having TTP staff on hand to help via chat/phone whenever I needed. Overall, it's a great service that I couldn't recommend more highly for someone trying to brush up on old quant skills before the GMAT!

I scored a 47 in Quant on my first try. I wanted to improve to a 49-50 and won a 4 month course in Quant from the GMAT subreddit. I used this course throughout my prep for my second try and found it very helpful. The lessons are arranged neatly and the quizzes are beneficial if you want a quick review of a particular topic. Also, they're very personal and reach out to you personally if you need any help and even ask you how you did after the exam. I'd definitely recommend if you're thinking about an online course. If you're looking for that extra push in Quant, go for this one!

Scott & Target Test Prep made a total miracle happen -- I was scoring in the low 600s when I started with them. Without the course's / Scott's insights, tricks, and tips, I would have never been able to pass the 700 threshold. In fact, I never, ever expected to even hit 720 - my final score was beyond my wildest expectations! I literally started from scratch and worked through the TTP course from Step 1. Scott continued to help sharpen all key skills and gave me some incredible time-saving tricks and tips which made all the different on test day. I had worked with Manhattan GMAT extensively -- Target Test Prep catapulted me to a whole different level. The course is very unique in that you can really drill down on key areas, a-la-carte. You are able to single out specific weak points and drill down on them easily through practice problems. I highly recommend trying their program - you won't be disappointed.

After working on GMAT prep for a few months, I just couldn't break through a barrier of 47 or so raw score in quant. Practice test after practice test, I just couldn't improve. Until I found TTP. Using their detailed lesson plans and expansive quesiton bank, I hammered home all the points I was struggling on and broke that barrier. With other services, I'd have trouble with one concept (say - time/distance style questions) and only have a bank of a few questions to sift through. With TTP, I had hundreds, including really hard ones. Felt like other services were great to get me set on fundamentals, but TTP got me over the edge. On D-day, I ended up with a 50 raw score on quant, so about as well as I could do. Thanks TTP!

I’ve heard a lot of stories from friends and through forums of people taking the GMAT and not being able to hit the score they desire the first time round. From the get go, I decided to engage with Target Test Prep to help me.

Only taking the exam once, I’m still in disbelief of how in the world I managed to get a 740 after only studying for 2 and a half months. I’ve never even hit that score in my practice exams before.

Can I just say, Scott Woodbury is amazing. I think his online curriculum on Target Test Prep is extremely comprehensive and easy to follow. It has a very effective and efficient structure that builds maths skills and knowledge from the ground up. Just going through my flash cards before the exam, I didn’t realise how well even just the lessons in the curriculum online flows and builds on one another. The question bank is very extensive and well managed with regards to the stages of the curriculum at which it prompts you to do them. The fact that I could do it any time in my own time was an extreme plus point as well. (I live in Asia, so between Scott and me, there’s a huge time difference).

I also had one class a week of private classes with Scott, totalling 7 sessions. All that time was spent efficiently clarifying any questions I had, especially on the other 3 sections of the GMAT. These one-to-one sections are fully flexible. He leaves it to you to decide where you think you may need the most help, while also highlighting areas he thinks you should focus more on improving.

Apart from being a friendly and approachable tutor, his encouragement and his wise, yet simple, advice made everything so much easier for me. The way he put things, it made me think “huh, I don’t know why I never looked at it like that before..” The verbal section was my weakest area. We only spent a total of 3 hours on it and my score improved significantly. To be honest, besides those 3 hours, I hadn’t done much other practice for that.

I highly recommend Scott and Target Test Prep. Especially if you’re looking for an easy-to-follow comprehensive curriculum, a supportive and effective tutor, and need that flexibility of doing it in your own time.
