I used TTP to improve my quant score, and I couldn't be happier! I took the GMAT my first time hoping that I would score around 700 because that is what I kept getting on my practice tests. When I went to sit for the actual exam, I was deflated when I saw that my score was a 690 (Q44, V41). After about a week, I decided that I needed to have another shot at it. I registered for another try that was two months away, and I signed up for TTP. My verbal score was good, but I knew that I needed to work on my quant. I studied only to improve my quant, and when I took the test I was amazed! I scored 740 (Q48, V44)!!! TTP helped me to gain a strong understanding of the concepts I needed to improve drastically. The program was simple and I could study just as much as I needed. I would definitely recommend TTP to anyone looking to improve their quant score!

Hello person reading this,
Just wanted to write this quick review to let everyone know that Target Test Prep really is the only quant prep you need. I have taken the GMAT 4x. First time I took it, I scored a dismal 25 in quant. Second time I scored a 38. The third time, I scored a 42. By this time, I had used Manhattan Prep, GMAT Club Tests, and the OG books. The fourth time I took it, the only prep, I used was the Target Test course. This product is the best by far out there for quant. No other product comes close. However, it only focuses Quant, so if you need to study verbal you will need to find something else in conjunction. Not only does TTP focus on improving your quant skills for the test. It also takes a holistic approach to learning and test day in general. They offer tips for learning better, such as active learning, being present etc. This course will help give you tips to learn better in other areas as well. Well anyway, after the last test I scored a 49 on quant! My only regret is not finding TTP sooner. It would have saved me a few tests and a lot of time and money. So if you are reading this and you are unsure what to get. GET THIS! You really won't regret it. Hope this helps. Please feel free to message me!

TTP was an invaluable quant resource for me. It helped to increase my quant score from a 44/45 to a 49.
First - the user interface of the course is great; everything is so neat and organized.
Second - the amount of material included in the course is incredible. There are over 2500 questions to go through throughout the course and each one really helps you to grasp the material. Any topic that the test could ever ask about is covered in TTP.
I chose the Flexible Prep option as I already had a solid understanding of all the material and only had 1 month to study. If you already have a good understanding of the material and are trending low to mid 40's in quant, then I would highly recommend TTP.

I was looking to strengthen my quants performance. I generally score 48-50 consistently but did not want my quant score to dip below 50. Having read bb's post on quants, I decided to try Target Test Prep (TTP).
I found the structure of the course to be excellent. It goes over all necessary mathematical topics in a logical order and has multiple practice tests ordered by difficulty level for each topic. I had solved all GMAT Club tests but I think the best way to improve one's score would be to complete TTP first and then do GMAT Club tests. The issue with doing just GMAT Club tests is that you are randomly picking at tough questions. Completing TTP first will ensure you have covered all the basics. Ultimately, I had read through 90% of the course and done 85% of their practice questions before the actual GMAT.
Another aspect is that TTP is backed by very good tech. The interface is neat and the analytics are helpful when you want to go over your weak points.
I took the 5-day trial for $1 and would recommend anyone undecided to take advantage of the trial. It gives you full access to the course and helps you determine whether TTP would be useful for you.

I first came across recommendations for Target Test Prep on Reddit as the go-to study program for the quant section. At first I was hesitant on the price point of the product, but once I got started working through it, it was worth every cent.
My favorite element of the product are the numerous chapter tests that I can take to improve my mastery over a certain skill. After my first attempt at the exam, I utilized the ESR to figure out what my weak points are in the Quant section. Thanks to TTP's chapter tests focusing on specific skills, I had plenty to work with to improve. On my next attempt at the exam, I saw significant improvement in my overall quant scoring.
A suggestion that I have to improve the product is to have a sort of question bank in which I can customize the amount of questions I want to take and be able to choose questions from a mix of chapters. I find that when I am working through certain chapter tests, it becomes obvious what tricks I should look out for in the problems. While helpful for when I am first learning the concept, it does not simulate a realistic situation in which I may not know immediately to look out for a certain trick.
Overall, I would suggest to anyone looking to improve their quant score or even to learn the math concepts the first time to use this product.

I improved my Quant score from 46 to 49. My overall score jumped 30 points. I earned a 690 and finished in the 85th percentile overall. So thankful for TTP and their team. They got me over the hump and now I feel that I will be accepted to my top choice school.
I have already been accepted one place with a full ride and am waiting to hear back from where I really want to go. Thanks to the $200 I spent on TTP I will end up saving thousands. That's an ROI all business school grads would consider great!
Thanks again to Scott and the team. You all really care about your students and it shows through your program.

I was scoring Q42 before enrolling to TTP dedicated study. I was shocked when I saw Q48 from my official GMAT.
TTP is a structured program that has various modules by chapter topics. Each module is thorough in its concepts and the study plan makes sure that we are 100% covered with all the topics we need to know for the GMAT. After each theory, we are then bombarded with the much needed questions for practice in three formats - Easy, Medium, Difficult with each modules covering around 200 questions for practice to make sure we are well versed with the topics. There are benchmarks in the study plan which we have to pass to proceed to the next quiz/module. I can tell you once you finish the modules and quizzes you can be confident to tackle any GMAT question in that module.
The course also comes with analytics section for each of the chapters/modules which will track our progress from the quiz. It also maintains an error log which we fill from the drop down option that is presented when we get a question wrong.
The course also comes with a dedicated worksheet which we can use to manually write down the important topics that we study based on the chapters. The worksheet is pre populated with all the topics in the chapters and all one has to do it is just take printout and start taking notes.
The "Must Know" pointers are really a great deal. Important points from each chapter are highlighted in a green box and these are the must know concepts which we can refer back at any point of time to quickly recollect the important concepts that was taught to us.
For people who have less time, the course also comes with an Advanced study plan which lets you attend quiz first and based on your weakness suggest topics to read so that you can quickly cover the syllabus.
The course also has an equations guide that you can simply take print out and refer back or use as a flash card when you need it.
Overall, Target Test Prep is a comprehensive course and requires considerable amount of time to complete and if we follow the dedicated approach the course suggests, then SKY is the limit.
Go TTP Go Quant.
P.S: i scored Q48 by skipping the Geometry and Probability lessons. I wish I had more time.

Well my association to Target prep goes back to 2015, when i gave GMAT for the first time. I scored a meager 690(Q47,V37). Was lagging behind in Probability and Combinatorics + Word problems. Took up a monthly subscription from them and have ended up scoring Q50. The said topics were beautifully covered in their prep course with step by step interactive question practise, makes it a very fun learning experience. Whenever i still get confused on the same, i always refer back to my notes taken from the course and helps me solve 700 level Questions of the said topics decently. The customer service is also amazing with prompt live chat mode resolution to queries. I strongly suggest to those stuck in Quant to give it a try.

TTP is the best quant prep out there. I took the official practice test and scored a 45Q. After three weeks of TTP I got it up to a 50 on the actual test. Before trying this course I was skeptical of reviews like the one I'm writing, but it is actually that good.
Prior to using TTP, I had gone through all the Manhattan books including Advanced Quant, and while they helped a bit, TTP was light years ahead of them in terms of presenting the right information in the most digestible way possible. After my first trial day I actually breathed a sigh of relief because I knew I had found a way to get the score I wanted--I just had to put in the work and go through all the modules. TTP is systematic and drills you on every single topic that could pop up on the test, in a way that teaches you the topic and reinforces the fundamentals. If I had more time or discovered TTP earlier, I would have without a doubt gotten a 51. That's how good this course is. There's a free trial so you can see for yourself.

I started the TTP program after studying independently on and off for a couple months, finally coming to the decision after taking the GMAT Prep practice exams 1 and 2 and scoring Q48 and Q46, and realizing that I needed more work on quant than I did on verbal.
The way TTP lays out the program is great and really covers everything that you need to know for the real GMAT. The questions are not OG, but they are very good representations at the easy, medium, and hard levels.
I would highly recommend that someone looking to do TTP start farther in advance of their test than I did, at least 12-16+ weeks. I completed the entire course in approximately 10 weeks, but it left me very little time at the end to go back and review areas where I was weak.
My goal for the real GMAT was to hit Q50-51, and I knew I was close because on my last 2 GMAT Prep official practice exams I scored Q50 and Q49. Ultimately I wound up with a Q48, but it wasn't because I felt unprepared, in fact it was the opposite. There were a few very difficult problems that I saw and surely wasted too much time solving just because I knew I could get the answer if I kept trying for another minute. This strategy ultimately cost me and I wound up guessing (I believe incorrectly) on the last 2 questions, in addition to being severely limited on the last 5.
Overall, TTP is a 5 star course. The content is very strongly representative of what you need to know on the real GMAT, and if you can consistently answer the "hard" level difficulty questions with a high degree of accuracy, you have a strong chance of scoring in the Q47-51 range.
