“Flexible scheduling and time efficient are the best adjectives to describe this preparation experience.”




Frameworks designed for you

The GMAT seems impossibly complex. It appears to require an infinite number of abstract, obscure skills—impractical to gain in only a few months. You're right. Acquiring these skills is impractical. Do you think that memorizing a bunch of formulas or idioms that you haven't thought about since high school will help you succeed in life? Neither do the authors of the GMAT. What they are really trying to determine is whether you have the necessary skill set to succeed at the next level: a top MBA program. We have boiled this skill set down to a few fundamental concepts that the test emphasizes repeatedly. Our coaches design a program personalized to your way of learning in order to best equip you with essential problem-solving strategies. These frameworks that we leave you with will help you master the GMAT and, more importantly, allow you to dominate business school and the business world after you graduate.

"These guys cut through the bullshit and get to the heart of the GMAT. They have designed unique systems that were essential in helping me overcome my own mistakes."




Make the GMAT afraid of you

Are you nervous about taking the GMAT and applying to business school? Most applicants are. In fact, test day nerves are a huge factor in bringing down scores. If you want to eliminate this anxiety, you need a coach, not a tutor. Every part of our program, including our lessons, strategies, resources, and study plan, is specifically designed for test day—game day. Our coaches will kick your ass. We'll constantly motivate you to study, get you excited about your coaching sessions, and force you to believe in yourself. We'll help you through the whole process, from test day to the day you hear that good news from your dream school. When you begin the exam, it won't be whether you're afraid of the GMAT, it will be whether the GMAT is afraid of you. You will stride with confidence into the testing room, the classroom, and the board room beyond.

“Y'all changed my studying outlook and overall experience with the GMAT. Dare I say it was even fun at times? I already miss our weekly sessions.”




You deserve a pro

Let us ask you something: if your car broke down, would you rather have an eighteen-year-old future mechanic take a look, or the sixty-year-old grizzled professional? The answer is obvious. The lesson? Experience matters. In order to maximize every minute of your GMAT prep, you need coaches who are intimately familiar with the exam. Our coaches have a combined 5,000 hours of experience with the GMAT. These hours have taught us that you will have different learning habits, strengths, and weaknesses than any of our other students. Our most successful students have ranged from non-native English speakers to math novices, from people with no prior preparation to people who have taken the GMAT three times already, and from consultants to non-profit warriors. Whatever your background may be, we will target and overcome your weakest points to maximize your success on the exam and in the business world beyond.

You need the best materials

If you want to perform the best, you need access to the best. Experience and strategies are all well and good, but they need to be backed by concrete prep materials. We will provide you with a combination of the highest quality resources available to craft a customized curriculum suited to your needs. Our library of videos, homework logs with analytics, exhaustive slide shows, custom quizzes, and recorded classes are all designed to make sure you have the materials you need to succeed.
