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 Manhattan gmat’s in-person prep course and while it was expensive, it was well worth every penny. I’m not the most effective at self-studying and the in person instruction quickly broke down difficult concepts and made them easy to understand. The workbooks and extensive online study materials (i.e., practice exams, exercise question trackers, etc.) were great supplements to the studying process. The practice exams were very similar to the actual gmat and being able to track all the drill question/answers online can help identify strengths/weaknesses and where to focus your studies. You have access to the online materials for a year after you sign up for the class, which comes in handy if you need to retake the test.

    Working with Manhattan is simply the way to go if you are looking for top scores. Making the investment is well worth it, and paid huge dividends for both myself and others who used their services. Taking the time to prep with Manhattan makes the GMAT portion of the application a solid foundation from which to start.

    Manhattan prep was basically the only resource I used. It was comprehensive and rigorous! The books in themselves are more than sufficient to get you scoring a superb score.

    Was great to have in person meetings; kept me on track. however, I wish you pre-tested into your class so that you were with students at your level. Great online resources to track your progress. The individualized study plan from my instructor was a game changer.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: i scored a lot higher when sitting for the test (700+ score) than i did in my practice exams (was scoring in 600 range). i am the type of person that has trouble focusing when i know something doesn't count.. therefore, i focused more on mini drills and perfecting my areas of weakness. trust yourself to assess what study plan will work best for you.

    I studied from the books and did the practice tests online. They were a great resource because it covered all the topics and types of questions in great depth so that I could focus on my weaknesses and dedicate more time to work on them. The practice tests were quite challenging and helped me get a feel for the real GMAT.

    The online practice tests are very similar to the gmat exam and since you can track your performance with each test, its easier to identify areas to focus on and areas to hone. The sentence correction material in particular stood out. for non-native speakers, the content and exercises provide a background and structure on how to approach sentence correction problems.

    I must admit that Avi is a fantastic teacher. I found his classes incredibly helpful in creating a holistic approach to gmat prep. He helped me structure a study schedule that worked around my job . Avi is a gmat expert but he is able to relate to first time writers and empathize with their limitations. I recommend his course to anyone looking to excel on gmat!

    I used the books from Manhattan prep overview for the gmat test. I found the books very useful as they provided an overview of the concepts and then had examples and exercise tests.

    I did the online practice tests, which were very good simulation of the actual test. Practicing those gave me a sense of what to expect in the real test scenario and prepare for the time pressure that is built during the test. Manhattan Practice Tests were a great way for me to prepare. I would encourage others to do them before giving the actual tests. You can see the correct answers and solutions to understand where you made mistakes. It is a great learning and practising tool. And the tests results are very close to the actual score in my case.

    I took the in person classes in nyc spring 2016. if you want to score >700, take the more challenging courses and do the advanced exercises, because i found the class somewhat basic. take advantage of the online videos, simulated gmat test experiences in their office, and online seminars.
