About Manhattan Review

Dr. Joern Meissner, a tenured business school professor, began his concept of Manhattan Review back in 1999. He has supervised and overseen all of the programs since its inception. Meissner believes that prep programs created and presented by professionals that hold an MBA are not as valuable as his company, led by Meissner who has actually taught in an MBA environment. This distinction gives him a better perspective within the learning process.

Not to say that Dr. Meissner steers the Manhattan Review ship on his own. He has a crew of highly qualified, instructors who have gone through a rigorous selection process to become a part of the team. The Manhattan program focuses on enabling students to concentrate more on pure content and education, rather than tricks and shortcuts.

Basics

The formats for Manhattan’s prep classes, both GMAT and GRE, are rigorous, whether online or in a classroom setting, and some classes require a set amount of personal tutoring. Although they are similar to most of the competition when it comes to material, curriculum and content, but they are set to a specific course schedule.

Manhattan Review’s courses all offer a choice between in-person or online formats, a number of selected teaching hours with different durations of total instruction time and content. Ultimately, the plans are individualized to meet a student’s particular needs. GMAT BONUS: Weekend or “Boot Camp” options are available for those last minute crammers.

Manhattan Review Cost and Contact Info

The regime of courses and select tutoring are tiered for both GMAT and GRE on three different levels: Classic, Private and Tutoring at $990, $1,590 and $150 per hour respectively.

    i would highly recommend the manhattan prep books. the lessons are very clear and methodical. i started off with a gmat score of 640 and after using the manhattan prep books (in conjunction with the official guides), I was able to achieve 710. the questions provided in manhattan tend to be a bit harder than the official ones which is good because it really tests you on your foundational knowledge and techniques. i would recommend to use an error log along side the manhattan guide. this way, you would be able to identify and focus on your weak areas. i can’t say good enough about manhattan!

    Manhattan Prep book were very valuable to learn the basics of the examen and to increase the proficiency in the areas where I needed additional review.

    I first took a complete Mgmat examen to assess the level of performance in the different areas of the examen. I later reviewed all mGmat books and did all the exercises available at the books. I later did an iterative process of taking a mgmat exam, review it in detail and expend time getting stronger in the areas that I performed the worst. exams available which were invaluable in getting me up to speed with the exam.

    Thanks to manhattan I was able to achieve the score that I was aiming. I definitely recommend manhattan prep course as the guide of choice to get up to speed to the gmat exam.

    GMAT prep was awesome – able to easily understand weak spots and develop. Did better on GMAT (750) than I ever did in my practice tests!

    The Manhattan GMAT review course was very structured and easy to follow. By simply attending all of the require sessions and doing the homework, I was able to learn all of the necessary concepts. I struggled to beat 640 on my GMAT (after 6 months of studying). Then I found Manhattan GMAT and was able to achieve 710. My only drawback is that the course is a bit introductory for someone who has already studied extensively for it. However, it taught me techniques that helped me get to the next level, which is to achieve greater than 700. Highly recommend this course.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: My advice would be to identify your strengths and weaknesses. Make sure the application highlights your strengths. Then make sure you address your weaknesses with the activities you will participate in during business school and thereafter.

    Manhattan prep’s specific books were perfect. I took practice tests first, found the areas where I was weakest, and then bought the relevant Manhattan books. I got a 760, so something went right!

    Prep books are very in-depth and cover a good range of topics, good for self-studying. Live classes don’t seem to deviate much from the books, but there if you need it. If you plan to take the GRE, Manhattan’s ‘5 lb. Book of GRE Practice Problems’ is a fantastic study tool.

    The Manhattan Review is a great resource to prepare for GMAT even if you think you’re confidant about appearing for the exam. The material allows you to refresh the concepts involved and practice them in the format in which GMAT will test you. To make it slightly more affordable you can use their $100 student referral option and use their free vocabulary guide available online. IF you believe you have your basics covered you can quickly read through the chapters and start with the practice questions and come back to easier questions in case you don’t perform well with the tougher one.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Columbia Business School - Fall 2008
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: MBA applications are a test of discipline and your knowledge of the school. Be clear and concise about your thoughts in your essays maintaining a coherent logical set of reasoning. Also talk to as many professors and students as you can including the members of the admission committee and put down their names in the application and the interview. That will make world of a difference.
