Magoosh all the way

Improvement 80 Points

Course Magoosh Premium

Location Online

Magoosh is premium material at a very reasonable price. I was able to get up 80 points. Especially as a non-native speaker, I gained a lot from the verbal section. The practice test wasn't the best but is pretty solid and that's the only area where I'd say Magoosh can do much better. In summary, I am not sure what my preparation would have looked like and what my score card would have without Magoosh. Also, the study plans were pretty awesome. Magoosh personally helped me pick and follow the 3 month verbal study plan based on my history with the test.

MGMAT CATs - Solid Quant Ordinary Verbal

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I used the 6 tests that I bought from MGMAT CAT. Quant was so much more difficult than the real one but the verbal is slightly easier. Don't be disheartened if you don't score in your target range soon after you begin preparing. It does take a good 6-7 weeks to get near the target and from then on, it's about attention to detail. What mistakes you may be committing consistently and how much of that you can correct. Also, remember to make use of the IRs and the AWAs as they give a good sense of fatigue - it also helped me even though I'd not prepared IR for the real deal. Having said all of this, this is the closest you could get to the GMAT prep practice test.

Excellent Center - Could be a little hard to find

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

This center is as good as it gets for testing. The equipment is modern, clean, and functional. It could be a little hard to find the center - especially if you drive to the test center but I called them and they gave me clear instructions. I'd recommend visiting the center a day before your test.

The staff is really pleasant. I took an extra break in the middle of a session and the lady at the desk signed me out and back in quickly knowing how valuable every minute was. I would have almost run out of time in the Quant section (I'd like to think she saved me 30 odd secs). In summary, I strongly recommend this test center to GMATers in the New England area away from big cities.
