My GMAT journey has been a tumultuous one to say the least. I started my first GMAT way back in 2013 and finally achieved a decent enough score in 2017.

I got a 680 last year, was not happy with it mainly due to the Quant score a 47 (65 percentile). It was soul crushing; not because my verbal was brilliant but coming from a finance back ground who always scored high in math- it was once again I repeat ‘soul crushing’!

After much deliberation and 2/3 rejected applications I decided to give my last and final GMAT in 2017, the whole game plan then was to score a good score- 700 plus with a definite improvement in QUANT. Problem was I had no idea how to go about it and this was back in June-17, my exam was scheduled for 5-Aug-17. I barely had time considering the work pressure and the constant travelling. I stumbled upon Target Test Prep purely by chance, was reading one of the success testimonials of a candidate on BEATTHEGMAT (forgot the user name). He had been in the same predicament and TTP had helped him get to his goal and he had mentioned it was only a $ for a 5 day trial and pointed out that if anyone liked a structured chapter by chapter study course TTP was the one. I read more on TTP and found great reviews on BEATTHEGMAT.

Decided that a dollar was worth a gamble and what a gamble that turned out!
I was hooked right after day 1! They have three options based on the access duration. Per month $ 69, 4 months- $ 199 and 6 months access- $ 279. Being short on time I opted for the monthly access plan.
TTP has a great teaching format. They have a clear study plan outlined for you and with chapters broken up into groups. You do each chapter review with supporting sums and the best part is their explanation! Jeff and Scott shines in this area- they have an audio visual explanation for each practice sum! This is followed by chapter tests that are broken down by levels of difficulty. The number of sums at their disposal is just mind blowing. After each chapter my confidence grew, even if I didn’t score the best. That was mainly cause of the explanation, they clearly highlighted the pit falls and the traps laid out in those sums and I genuinely learnt from my mistakes(a first for me). I reached a point that in the Hard level tests I would wish to get some questions wrong purely to figure out if I missed any traps in the questions answered (delusional of me I know).

The D-day arrived, I wrote the test clicked on result and voila I see a 50 in Quant- 87 percentile. Of course overall wasn’t great as my verbal dipped to a 35 (was sooo hoping for a 720/730).
Came out of the exam center with mixed feelings but as far as TTP was concerned they rocked and I couldn’t thank them enough. The course was instrumental in beating my Quant Dragon! If you like a structured learning plan that helps you track your progress and with the advantage you can open and do it anywhere – TTP is the course for you. I loved it and would highly recommend it.
I don’t know where I land post the admissions cycles but this course was for me a score changer!

(I understand my credentials are open to question specifically since I haven’t got a lot of posts but I was a genuine student of TTP [an ACA/CPA by profession], if you feel like pinging me for further queries pls feel free to PM).

I was under a pretty severe time crunch and needed to pick up my quant score. My score at the time (45) wasn’t bad, but I wanted to get to 50 and needed to move on from the GMAT to work on applications. I was growing frustrated with other resources, largely because I was answering problems out of a book rather than on a screen. Nothing I found seemed geared toward the kind of tailored help I needed. I began looking around for a tutor, which is how I got in touch with Jeff Miller from TTP.

Over the following weeks I went through the sections on the TTP site and did some private tutoring with Jeff. Both were invaluable to me. First of all, the chapter quizzes on the website, and the ability to make custom quizzes, enabled me to simulate the CAT experience and focus on areas in which I needed to improve. I could create custom quizzes comprised of only hard questions in the areas in which I needed to improve, and then review the solutions to those problems until I fully understood the concepts. Until signing up for this course, I simply hadn’t found anything with that level of depth. The ability to highlight sections in the course chapters and bookmark certain problems in the quizzes to review later was especially helpful.

The one-on-one tutoring with Jeff was incredible. He taught me plenty of tricks for complex problems in addition to general strategies which I was able to use on test day. Some of the wisdom he imparted was stuff I hadn’t heard anywhere, even after going through all the Manhattan Prep books and speaking with lots of other people studying for the test. Let me tell you, when a problem came up that I was able to answer in 10 seconds which would have taken 2 or 3 minutes otherwise, I was grateful I had invested in the tutoring. Jeff, in addition, has a response time which rarely exceeds 10 seconds. Not an exaggeration. He would literally text me at like 8PM on a Friday night to ask how my practice test went. Beyond improving my knowledge base and GMAT skillset, it was awesome just to be supported like that. Overall, I can’t recommend these guys enough. The tutoring and chapter quizzes were a huge reason I brought my score up as high as I did. Ended up with a 760, 50Q. Thanks guys!

I cannot recommend Target Test Prep enough.

I come from a non-traditional background (Musical Theater), and, when applying to MBA programs, knew I would need to perform at a competitive level in my quant and IR scores in order to make a mark in my applications.

I'm stubborn and cheap and didn't want to sign up for an in person class or one-on-one training (also very uncomfortable failing in front of people, and I knew there would be a lot of failure as I relearned all the math I'd forgotten since high school). I initially used a different program-a long set of books that gave me a good refresher on conceptual knowledge with basic questions about each chapter just enough to cover the basic principles. Even though I spent two months with these books and countless hours studying, my first sitting at a real test was a disappointment. I scored a 39 (37th percentile) for quant and a 6 (70th percentile) for IR. I knew these scores would not prove to an admissions team that I was ready for their business oriented programs. And what was worse, I knew that I was capable of a better performance. I just didn't have the right tools.

I looked around online forums for programs specifically geared towards raising your quant score and Target Test Prep seemed to be the best course content for the best price. I loved the idea of the monthly subscription, as I was registered to take the test again two and a half weeks later, and didn't want to spend a ton of money on something I would (hopefully) only use for a couple of weeks. And with the awesome week free trial, I really would only be using the subscription for a week and a half. The week free trial let me test drive the software and see that it was the kind of guided progression that I was missing out on from my resistance to not take an in person class. It provided a structure that made sense and felt interactive and engaging. The dashboard, study plans, and chapter tests, are invaluable tools. The hundreds of practice questions littered throughout the study guides really drill typical test formats into your study process. Where I had learned conceptual knowledge from the previous program, Target Test Prep teaches operational knowledge that is of real use when approaching the GMAT.

Admittedly, I did not follow the study guide to the letter, as I only had two and a half weeks to use the software. I did make sure to work through all of the study guides and take most of the "easy" level chapter tests. Then I moved on to the mixed review tests. I love that there is always a timer for the tests that counts down two minutes and that the scoring of each test tells you whether a question was easy, medium, or hard. I knew I was ready when the only questions I was getting wrong were "hard" level questions. I also felt confident looking at the dashboard, seeing that I had answered 500+ questions with 80% accuracy.

On the day of my second test, I experienced some major differences in my performance due to using Target Test Prep: I was more comfortable with all question types, I had working knowledge of all quant principles and knew what kinds of problems each question was asking immediately and what formulas to use, I was much speedier and my internal clock told me when two minutes was about up and it was time to move on, and, maybe most importantly, I could immediately identify questions that were simply too tough for me or on insanely difficult subject matter not even explicitly covered by Target, allowing me to quickly guess and move on, buying me time for other questions and saving me the stress of wondering if I could have ever answered it correctly.

With just two and a half weeks of studying with the Target Test Prep software, I raised my quant score from 39 to 46 (60th percentile) and my IR from 6 to 8 (93rd percentile). My verbal section also improved drastically due to having less stress over the quant section (I didn't study any verbal between test 1 and test 2).

Target Test Prep was incredible!! Hands down the best at what they do (i.e. GMAT quant). I had used other programs, including MGMAT and Magoosh before and for quant, there was no comparison to TTP. I used TTP’s online self-paced program but also worked one-on-one with a tutor in the final 5 weeks leading up to my test.

The online program is very well designed such that once you finish a chapter on a particular topic, you feel very comfortable with the material (b/c you've also been doing practice problems along the way that are built-in to the chapters). Beyond that, I really liked the ability to do practice sets via topic or build customized p-sets, and most importantly that all of the data analytics were available to you so you could clearly gauge what topics, questions types, etc. you needed to improve on.

As for the one-on-one tutoring, I would HIGHLY recommend Scott! He has clearly mastered the GMAT math content and it is evident in the techniques and approaches to specific problem types he is able to teach.

Particularly for my learning style, being able to say "I'm struggling with X,Y, Z topic " and then have Scott not only walk me through it, but also ensure I understood it by doing several more similar problems was very helpful. Something that would have typically taken me many more hours of trying to understand on my own, was usually cleared up in a few minutes, then drilled down to make sure I truly felt comfortable with it.

The combination of one-on-one tutoring WITH the online TTP program was key though. I would not have had the fundamentals to make our tutoring sessions as effective otherwise. The one-on-one sessions combined with the online program were a complete game-changer for my GMAT studies. This is undoubtedly what moved me from a 650 to 700. And for the record, it’s important to that I started studying for my GMAT in earnest with a very short timeline before I had to take my test to be eligble for R2 b-school apps (about 6 weeks). I know that had I started with TTP earlier my score would have easily been higher than this, but my goal given my timeframe was to get into the 700s club, which I did!

I’m still in the middle of the R2 process, but I am extremely happy to have been thus far extended interview invites for 4 out of 6 top 20 MBA programs I applied to. Don’t think I would have had the same outcome if I hadn’t raised my score with TTP! Great program! Cannot say it enough.

Scott along with the TTP platform were invaluable in giving me the right tools to prepare for the quant section of the GMAT. My math has been generally strong, but without Scott's and TTP's help, it would have never been possible for me to score Q49. TTP taught me a lot of useful techniques for solving the Quant problems as quickly as possible with minimal risk of making mistakes. I had an excellence experience with TTP. The platform provides a complete package of study material, ideal for people aiming to reach a top ten percentile score. Highly recommended Thank you!!!

I started my GMAT journey in September. Quickly reviewing some reviews online, I decided to purchase the Manhattan books. After a few weeks of studying, I thought the books were a little boring to read and didn’t have much structure to my study plan. I knew I had to find a better game plan if I wanted to be successful in the test. I decided to turn to people in my network who had taken the GMAT. A friend, who is currently at HBS and had struggled with the quant portion of the test, recommended Target Test Prep to me.
I signed up for the 5 day trial and immediately loved the platform. The course is very interactive, comprehensive and provides a detailed study plan. I was able to drill down on concepts I was struggling with and move faster on what I understood well. It was a perfect way to structure my study time for the quant portion of the exam. After completing all the lessons, I scheduled an exam date at the beginning of December and scored a Q44. I was very disappointed as I knew I could do a lot better in the quant section. I decided to reach out to Jeff and scheduled some tutoring sessions. As I was pressed for time and wanted to meet the R2 deadlines, I was ready to do anything to improve. I scheduled a few sessions with Jeff and in just a few hours he was able to assess some of my key weaknesses and provide me with insightful tips on how to improve my test taking strategy. I wrote the exam 20 days later and improved my score to a 710, Q47 (which was sufficient for most of my target schools). I am confident that if I had continued to do a few more hours with Jeff, I could of have increased my quant score even higher. The online platform gave me a solid base and understanding of the concepts, but Jeff was able to bring me to the next level. He was also extremely supportive, texting me to ask how my practice was going. My only regret is to not have started the one on one tutoring sessions earlier!

I scored a 740 on the GMAT with only three weeks of studying, due primarily to my usage of Target Test Prep's Flex Plan to target quantitative. I only had a few weeks to study and I knew that my quantitative skills would be my weakest area, so I scoured the internet and my personal network for recommendations on the most effect way to boost my quantitative score. One of my good friends who scored a 750 on her GMAT recommended Target Test Prep, and I would highly recommend this material to anyone who needs to review quantitative in preparation for the exam.

Target Test Prep Flex Plan has roughly twenty chapters covering all different areas of the quantitative section, from coordinate geometry to functions & sequences to probability to rate / work problems. Target Test Prep covered every type of question that I ever saw in any GMAC-published practice material. Along with each chapter is included easy, medium and hard tests that one can take to test the concepts that were just learned. It was an extremely effective way to target my weakest area, and I wouldn't have done as well as I did without it.

For those GMAT takers that know they are weak quantitatively, this is one of the most cost-effective and high-quality products on the market to address geometry, arithmetic and algebra. Flex Prep is only $99 a month, and it was extremely worth it for me! :)

I stumbled across this program really late in the study process. I hadn't been studying and had scheduled the exam for 2 weeks from the date I signed up. Knowing that Math would be my weakest point, I needed a rigorous program that would allow me to both concentrate on specific areas of weakness, provide timely feedback, and build on my foundation. In short I was in an impossible situation, trying to cram and relearn math in short order.

The program was fantastic in helping me achieve my goal, boosting my Quant score by 20 points in less than a week of dedicated study. I highly recommend starting the program with enough time to complete the course start to finish, as I think I would have easily added another 30 points.

The flexible pricing and the depth of information is another major benefit of this; given the intensive and time consuming demands of my job, I knew I would not be able to complete a standard course, but I think this program would be even better for someone who is really focused on quant!

The first time I took the GMAT (2013, undergrad), I scored a 710. I started studying again a few months ago and tried all the prep materials out there: Manhattan’s practice tests, Veritas’ question bank, Magoosh question bank, etc.

Target Test Prep had exactly what I needed to crack the 700 barrier again and score a 730 - categorized quant content, study plans (long or short depending on timeframe), and a continuous feedback loop. I actually kept a spreadsheet where I classified each incorrect answer (geometry, number properties, etc.) as well as the reason that I got it wrong (stupid mistake, poor understanding of content, etc.). TTP had this built in, which really helped focus my studying with the limited time I have. Their approach is by far the best, and has an excellent price point.

Target Test Prep is the absolute best resource for Quant preparation. After getting a 70 point increase in my GMAT score, I can't imagine that anyone would not see an improvement their Quant score after properly following through with the Target course. I did a number of other courses before doing Target, and I wish I had just gone straight to Target and not have spent my money on the others. All of the topics and approaches that I felt like I didn't understand after the other courses were thoroughly covered by Target.

The Target course format is comprehensive, easy to understand, and effective. Math topics are covered starting from the basics, which may seem excessive, but trust me, you don't realize how crucial those basics are until you see how much your score improves. The structure and content of the lessons were great, and the example problems in each lesson really highlighted how each concept is applied on the GMAT.

The real key to success of the course, in my opinion, are the practice tests after each lesson. The practice tests are what really test your understanding and will highlight things you thought you knew but actually didn't understand when it came time to execute. For your tailored study program, you will be given accuracy goals for the tests; make sure you do all the tests and hit all the accuracy goals. I was short on study time before one of my earlier GMAT dates, so I made the mistake of skipping tests and just flying through reading the lessons. The Target program will flash constant alerts at you if you do not follow the recommended study plan and complete the tests -- trust me, they know what they're talking about, follow the study plan if you want the best outcome for your score.

Get Target Test Prep if you want to improve your GMAT Quant score; you won't regret it.
