I used TTP program for two months. I think it is one of the most comprehensive courses in Quant. When I took my diagnostic exam and found my weak areas were algebra, geometry and rate problems, I used tried their one week trail for US$1. I was able to improve my score from late 20s, early 30s to 40+. I have to mention though that I used only 5% of their practice sections. These are critical to a great score.
The only downside I see with the amazing, comprehensive course is that it uses only traditional approach. To breeze through quant section you need to know alternate approaches like choosing smart numbers, backsolving, estimation and other ways of solving problems. I found them in @Bunuel's solutions, MGMAT books etc.
I would highly recommend this course in conjunction with GMAT club tests/questions.
I have been preparing for the GMAT for the last 2.5 months. After studying from about three different course providers, I was not seeing an improvement in my quant scores. That is when I read Slingfox's de-brief on GMAT club. Slingfox said the score improvement was because of GMAT Club tests.
I have only taken four tests for quant and there are 26 of these gems. I have to admit they there are some of the toughest exam questions out there. Also, if you link back to some of the explanations on the questions at the forum you would be blown away by the elegant solution. Bunuel is a genius and his answers are always the best. However, sometimes other users come up with ideas/ tips that really make it easy for you to solve a question in a few seconds rather than minutes.
I think some of learnings in the tests have been the wave theory for inequalities. And more importantly the sign tables. I never studied these at MGMAT, TTP or anywhere else. Other areas include, discriminant in quadratic equations; determinant for a triangle and many more.
I would give it five star rating. Pray I complete all these tests. I am confident that with a basic understanding of quant materials coupled with these tests should surely result in a q48 if not q50-51.
Thanks GMATCLUB!
