Hanny 770 GMAT Scorer
Hanny, a Financial Controller, had prepared at home using several competing books and materials, but had not yet cracked the 700 mark. she knew that her chances of admission to the business school of her choice rested on getting a convincing GMAT score that would catapult her to the top of Admission's Most Wanted list.
Thank you so much for all your help in helping me prepare for the GMAT. I never really would have imagined it possible to achieve such a high score without your help.
Sid: Thanks for keeping the sessions intense and for being so patient with me during my blur moments. Your explanations of concepts were awesome and your advice on how to approach the questions made a huge difference in the way I tackled the exam. Thanks also for pointing out my bad habits that could potentially hinder my performance and for making me aware of them. I tried my very best to not jump the gun during the exam and to read the questions extra extra carefully. Certainly could not have done it without you.
Nagi: The word "pedantic" literally did not leave my mind throughout the whole verbal section of the exam and during the whole time I was preparing for the GMAT. It had become my motto during study and I am really glad that you introduced that wonder word and concept to me. The worksheet you provided me to keep track of my progress was truly a life-saver. It made me so much more organized in the way I was studying and allowed me to easily identify areas of weaknesses that I needed to work on. Getting such an excellent score on the verbal was beyond what I had hoped to achieve. You're the best!
Dan 710 GMAT Scorer
Dan, an Oilfield Engineer, came to the GMAT Zone having previously self-studied for the GMAT and needed a better score than his first attempt (of 640). He chose a course focused purely on Verbal improvement, as he knew that's where his needs lay.
Just wanted to let you know that I was very pleased with the end result of my GMAT (I managed to track down my official scores from February, which are listed below also):
- 640 overall, 80th percentile
- 47, 82nd percentile on the Quantitative Section
- 31, 61st on the Verbal
- 5 on analysis of an issue
- 6 on analysis of an argument
Today's test, May 8th:
- 710 overall!! 94th percentile
- 49, 90th percentile on the Quantitative Section
- 37, 83rd on the Verbal
- I think I did about the same on the written sections
I improved tremendously, and somehow even managed a better score on the Quantative section.
Thanks so much for your help, and for putting together the sessions on such short notice. I hope all goes well for you and your miracle-working company.
Jamie 740 GMAT Scorer
Jamie sought insights into the conceptual aspects of specific quantitative and verbal topics, as well as practice on an exam-grade question database platform.
The courses were extremely helpful as they helped identify particular concepts and areas which the GMAT tests, but which may not be readily identified from the self study texts alone. The tutorials were also very practical and result orientated (especially the proprietary on line testing platform which gave me much needed real time test conditions practice) and helped my confidence level, particularly in my weaker areas. All in all, money well spent.
My score was 740/98% (for verbal and quantitative) and 5.5/87% for analytical writing. Really happy with it.
Thanks again guys!
Daniel 770 GMAT Scorer
Daniel came to the GMAT Zone with two goals in mind : to ace the GMAT, and get into arguably the most exclusive business school program in the US, the Wharton / Lauder MBA. He faced the twin challenges of low work experience and youthful profile. With the help of our consultants he achieved both his goals, and is excited about the incredible opportunities that life now presents.
"Hi guys, I cannot think of money better spent: I would never have been successfully admitted to Wharton/Lauder without you guys.
Your GMAT course was time-efficient, to the point, and extremely effective. As you know I decided to pursue an MBA only at the end of August; just two weeks of working with your unique GMAT material snagged me a 770.
Another month of you two always being prompt and extremely insightful with your replies, helping me strategically chart what stories to present in my essays; choosing the most appropriate recommenders, given my unique profile and of course the absolutely invaluable interview prep later, and I was successful at the only programme I'd applied to.
For your GMAT prep, the extremely flexible schedule- because of time schedule concerns, you even gave me one-to-one lessons for free- was absolutely perfect for busy and time-stretched applicants like myself. In addition, compared to other admissions consultants, your ability and willingness to provide face-to-face consultancy and feedback to local Singaporean students put you a distinct cut above the rest.
Truthfully, because I am still in college I'd initially thought that an admission into an MBA programme might be beyond me because of my relative lack of work experience. However, you were absolutely brilliant in helping me actually turn this into an advantage over other applicants. And thanks to you guys, I'm now going to attend my dream school, Wharton, starting from May!
Your help was indispensible at every step of my business-school application journey. You've helped me realize my dreams!"
