Target Test Prep’s course structure was exactly what I needed. The dashboard gives you real analytics on your progress, which makes it so much easier to track your strengths and weaknesses. It’s also easy to navigate and simple. As soon as I paid the $1 trial sign up fee, I felt like I was able to get to work immediately. With this plan, I did not take any shortcuts. I did the work. I built myself a calendar around Target Test Prep’s recommended study plan and stuck to it. I tracked my progress on their dashboard, flagging questions I did not understand, and then went back to them to redo later. No other resource I had tried (and I tried many of them) made it so easy to identify and tackle my weaknesses.

I also opted to do individual tutoring sessions with Jeff, Target Test Prep’s head tutor. These sessions were grueling because Jeff purposely showed me the trickiest problems to help me learn how the test is designed to stump you. Through these sessions, I started to learn how to think about problems and how to approach them more strategically.

For me, Target Test Prep was crucial for building the confidence I needed in my quant base, and I truly believe it taught me to think more strategically about the exam overall. My verbal and IR both improved without much additional time spent studying these sections. But I also have to thank Jeff, who gave me the confidence to go back to the exam and give it one more shot. If it weren't for his motivation, I would not have seen a 50 point increase in my score!

Target Test Prep gives you practice problems with every possible quant question type you would see on the GMAT. I would review Kaplan's question banks but I never really learned the material because, it was all new problems without clear direction as to how to solve the problem. The Target Test Prep videos show you how to solve every single question that would be in the question bank. It is the best Quant review.

I took the Kaplan course(waste) in May, and my score only improved from 680 on my diagnostic to a 710 on my last practice test. So I signed up for Target Test prep four weeks before I took the exam, and did a chapter and 2 quizzes for that chapter per day. I ended up with a 750 4 weeks after signing up for Target test prep. It is the BEST quant review. Highly recommend.

I identified very early on in my GMAT prep that I needed to focus almost exclusively on prepping for the quant section of the test. I understand that everyone has their own unique path to success on the GMAT, however, if you are like me and mainly struggle with quant as a non-STEM undergrad (or simply lack quant confidence), you will not regret learning concepts, tightening up knowledge gaps, and drilling with Target Test Prep. Their web interface is sleek, easily accessible from your PC or mobile device, and allows you to quickly target and strengthen weak areas.

I have utilized a variety of GMAT prep materials (actually pretty much all of them) but none of them will get you the same bang for your buck as Target Test Prep if you put in the requisite effort. I needed a product that would provide me a structured quant overview, but would also allow me the flexibility to hone in on problem areas and target them with a sufficient breadth of problems. Target Test Prep has every quant concept covered backwards, forwards, and sideways with several 10-18 question “chapter tests” (sometimes even up to 8 or 9 chapter tests) and a robust , proprietary question bank.

The questions are broken down into easy, medium, and hard- I’ve noticed that many of the easy questions target concepts in ways that you won’t find anywhere else. While many test prep companies pay lip service to mastering quant fundamentals, the TTP “easy” problems are designed in such a way as to ensure that you have truly mastered the basics before moving on to more difficult problems. The medium and hard problems tend to be slightly more difficult than official GMAT medium and hard problems which is EXACTLY what you want in a GMAT quant prep platform.

Target Test Prep was instrumental to my GMAT success. I only had three weeks to prepare for the exam, and TTP allowed me to tailor a study plan to my exact needs. The course content was clear, easy to access and designed significantly better than what I found in test prep books. The program helped me determine what areas I needed to focus on, and then provided curriculum and practice exams to review. The content was divided into sections, each covering specific skills. Each section included a PowerPoint curriculum, and a handful of practice exams (easy, medium and hard) that were easy to manage and easy to track progress on. Without TTP I would not have been able to score as well as I did.

I am a male, thirty-five years of age, and a native English speaker in the USA. I am single, no children, and therefore have more free time than many people my age. I graduated cum laude from a large state university in 2004 where I studied finance and economics. Immediately after undergrad I went to law school, practiced law for two years, and then worked in healthcare for eight years.

I took the GMAT in December 2016 and scored a 670 (48Q/34V) after several months of self-study with commonly used print materials. I found out in March 2017 that I was not accepted to the three top 25 programs to which I had applied. I thought my GMAT score was the biggest reason for lack of admission and the most important admission criteria that I could improve for the next application cycle. I was also told by several MBA admission consultants that the top finance programs want 49 or higher on quant. My quant had to improve to meet that threshold. My GMAC CAT verbal scores were at 40/41 (in April 2017) and combined with a 49 in Quant would enable a 720+ score. I spent a couple weeks evaluating the various online test prep services.

I chose Target Test Prep for Quant Prep because I had participated in some of the free Tuesday sessions with Jeff and watched some of the other free content TTP has on YouTube. I signed up for the TTP one month renewable plan and followed the short study plan so that I could sit for the test again and finally break 700. The first month I strictly followed the short study plan and found that the TTP program was easy to follow, had user friendly explanations in text and many also in video, and that these studies guided me to a deeper understanding of why every choice was correct or not. I also found that the answer explanations on TTP were far superior to the print materials I previously used to earn a 48Q. I had hoped that one month would be enough for me, but my GMAC CATs were not meeting my goal and I renewed TTP for a second month. During the second month I took practice quant exams nearly every night, including TTP tests that were composed entirely of previous wrong answers. The self-testing options were incredible and allowed me to focus on whatever section needed attention.
In addition to the amazing structured program, the people behind the program, Scott and Jeff, are TTP’s greatest assets. They were always available and responded to emails within a few hours. Scott even texted me while he was traveling internationally.

I took the official GMAT again in July 2017 and scored 700 with a 50Q and 34V. I am thrilled with my quant score and do not believe that I could have scored 50 without TTP. I highly recommend TTP and that you email TTP so that Scott or Jeff can recommend the right study plan for you.

Target Test Prep's product is all you need for GMAT Quant prep. I had used a test prep course from one of the "big" guys. After finishing the course, I scored a 550 on the real thing. I felt extremely disheartened, so I started doing research on the GMAT forums for better products/platforms and came across TTP. After reading a lot of great reviews of TTP, I ended up signing up for TTP's $1 introductory price to see what the hype was all about. I was immediately blown away by the platform. Once you sign up, you can take a diagnostic test, which is based on the score range you are targeting. After the diagnostic has been completed, you can chat with Jeff about which study plan would be best for you. Most of the questions have video explanations and the analytics help you track which question types you continually get wrong and/or why you continue to get them wrong. If you can master the hard questions on the TTP platform, you shouldn't have trouble with the GMAT Quant section. I did as many TTP questions as I could and ended up improving my quant score from 37 to 45. I know that a 45 isn't in the 90th percentile but given my starting point, I am happy with how much I improved and I know that it wouldn't have been possible without TTP.
The guys at TTP are extremely responsive and Scott deserves a special shout out for all the help. Scott asked me to push harder when I didn't think I could. Throughout the process he was available for any queries that ranged from questions about the TTP platform to test day anxiety.
If you dedicate the time and energy to go through the study plan that TTP has laid out, you WILL see an improvement. If you are reading this review as you are doing research on which platform to sign up for, look no further and sign up for TTP today. There isn't a better product out there for GMAT Quant. Good luck!

I have used Target Test Prep, almost exclusively, for improving my quant. I first sat the GMAT in December 2015, and re-sat it again last week, moving from a Q40 to a Q49.

I can only speak highly of the program - I dabbled slightly in the other options out there, but am extremely impressed at the diligent approach of the course. Taught me many tricks and things that to be frank I simply had to memorize.

What I appreciated the most was:

- Giving a formulaic approach that I can instantly apply to a broad swathe of questions - this is great for someone like me, a History major, who has zero natural talent for quant.
- Excellent practice questions.
- The comprehensiveness of the material covered. There was nothing on the actual day that surprised me or left me nonplussed, a massive contrast to when I first sat the GMAT.

If you JUST want to improve your quant, don't waste your money on these blockbuster companies that demand thousands of dollars worth of your cash.

After I didn't do as well as I wanted to on my first test, I signed up for TTP and bought a few hours of tutoring with Jeff. TTP and Jeff are both amazing - my whole score went up 40 points after going through this program. I can't recommend them enough.

The website is SO helpful - the lessons are really easy to follow and efficient. I was able to get through the short study plan and learn so much in 2 months. I had been using Magoosh before but I found myself not retaining a lot from the videos. TTP has questions after each chapter and videos on the most efficient way to solve them, which makes it really easy to practice. If I didn't get something, I never had to wait more than 30 min for Jeff or Scott (the co-owners) to answer a question. They have a chat feature and respond themselves with how best to think about problems.

Tutoring with Jeff was also amazing. Even though TTP only focuses on quant, Jeff's general advice about how to approach the test helped me with my verbal as well. I had a less expensive tutor before, but that wound up being a waste of money. It's really worth it to pay for someone who can help with your GMAT strategy, not just generally how to solve a problem.

I started studying for the GMAT middle of last year when I took a Manhattan GMAT course. Upon completion of the course I felt I knew the material but realized that was not the case when I took the actual exam. Next I utilized magoosh which improved my quant score a little bit but no where near where I had desired. After magoosh I tried TTP as a a friend swore by it. I utilized the course as well as Jeff once a week for private tutoring. TTP excels in breaking down each topic thoroughly. After utilizing TTP and Jeff my quant score increased 10 points to a 48. Would definitely recommend this service to anyone struggling with Quant.

The first time that I took the GMAT, I did not have much structure in my studying. When I decided to take it again, I reached to a few friends to see what service they used for the Quant section. Nearly everyone suggested Target Test Prep! After giving it a try, I agree with them. The program is easy to use, and it is organized in a way to where it can meet anyone's needs. I only used it for two months, but I liked that it offered a short study plan. This abbreviated study plan is ideal for those who already have an idea of which subjects they need to work on. Also, TTP's founder reaches out to offer help after you sign up. I was able to increase my score, but most importantly, I felt like I gained a true understanding of the material.
