About Manhattan Prep

Teach for America alumnus and Yale graduate Zeke Vanderhoek, began with a vision of students learning better, if given more qualified teachers, back in 2000. He assembled a hand-picked team of 99th percentile educators to give potential learners a more substantial preparatory experience and the concept of Manhattan Prep was born.

Offering an approach that touts critical thinking, rather than using tricks and gimmicks, Zeke and his team of accomplished instructors believe that learning should be fun and not just something the student should suffer through as a means to the end.


Manhattan Prep offers services for self-starters, giving them readily available options offered at their own pace, up to and including last-minute crunch courses. More structured online courses are available for those who need tutoring options and more advanced, comprehensive direction and assistance.

    I took the standard Manhattan GMAT Prep class the summer before taking the GMAT. I was initially hesitant to shell out $1000+ to take a course that consisted of reviewing material available elsewhere. The course’s thematic grouping and logical progression with respect to topics covered on the GMAT justify the expense, and the easy access to top test takers who are more than willing to help you succeed is invaluable. I went up 120 points from my initial diagnostic to my final test score, and attribute much of that to the Manhattan Prep course.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Focus on no more than 3 schools per round. Begin your applications well in advance of the deadlines, especially if you are retaking the GMAT ahead of submission. I waited until after getting the GMAT score that I wanted to begin my applications.

    I took the GMAT last year using Manhattan Prep and my score went up 80 points in 6 weeks. Manhattan Prep breaks down the material to be digestible. Furthermore, they are very responsive. I would email them with questions and they would always get back to me. I studied on my own for about 3 months and I learned more (and saw more progress) during the 6 weeks with Manhattan Prep than the 3 months prior combined. I recommend it to anyone.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: My application advice for the GMAT is to fit in the time. Have a schedule and dedicate a certain amount of time each day and week. I broke out the different sections of the GMAT and studied 2 hours before work every morning. Prior to doing Manhattan Prep, I studied on my own, as well. In total, it only took 4 months, which is worth the commitment for a top grade.

    I did a Manhatten Prep review course that was extremely helpful in prepping me for the exam. Re-learning the math and grammar rules, etc, is easy on your own but the course provided me with countless tips and tricks for doing my best on the test that I would not have known otherwise (e.g., strategies for timing questions, getting yourself mentally prepared, etc.) The materials provided for the course were also very thorough and something that I could use to help prep well after the course ended.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: The most important thing in the application process is to establish your "story" early and to know it very well. This will make everything else (e.g., writing essays, interviewing) much easier. Talk to coworkers, current MBA students, MBA alumni and those working at the companies you would be interested in post-MBA to help get this story right. Also, do lots of information-gathering through both campus visits and information sessions.
