Overview

About Target Test Prep

With a strong background in physics, chemistry, math and biology, founder Scott Woodbury-Stewart, started his Target Test Prep program in hopes of assisting students with primarily the quantitative portion of GMAT testing. Scott offers his programs, along with  individualized tutoring for those in need using Skype and WebEx as his primary platforms to communicate directly with users. Scott and his admittedly smaller team of experts provide students with support towards higher test scores on the quantitative section of this exam.

Basics

Concentrating mostly on quantitative results and improving those particular test results and scores, their programs offer twenty chapters with 500+ lessons geared towards honing and developing those skills found on GMAT topics that are directly focused on math, word problems and geometry. To conquer the complicated field of GMAT mathematics, they’re giving over 3,000 practical problems with a “practice makes perfect” effort and mentality in mind.

Target Test Prep also offers analytics and bookmarking features that allow students to find solutions to previously unresolved problems and watch videos to either review their progress or enter into new, unexplored fields of study they have yet to address within the given curriculum.

Target Test Prep Cost and Contact Info

Target Test Prep offers a one dollar introduction to their services for a period of five days rather than the more traditional 7-Day free trial period often offered by the competition.

When it comes to the actual cost for these quantitative geared programs, following the $1 trial presentation, plans are based on these monthly payment levels such as:

  • The “Flexible Presentation” package at $99 per month with unlimited access
  • The “Dedicated Study” package at $299 for four months unlimited access
  • The “Maximum Learning” package at $399 for six months unlimited access, which equates to a $66.50 monthly fee

Contact information is found here with a typical form submission system that is promised to become more individualized and personalized following the student’s admission and payment.

    Target Test Prep is the most comprehensive GMAT math guide available – it allows for a thorough and self-paced review of ALL the math concepts on the test, along with helpful quizzes to practice. The online guides are very clear and thorough. I highly recommend it, and it definitely helped me succeed.

    Target Test Prep is ideal for self-study, showing you exactly where your weaknesses lie within each subtopic. Other programs may be more suitable as a complement to tutoring or in-person classes, as these programs tend to give a broader overview of topics. Within Target Test Prep, you can tackle topics and subtopics in a time-frame that fits your schedule, which could be 5 minutes one day or 2 hours the next. The easy tests build confidence and transform weaknesses into strengths, and the hard tests give a good level of challenge in getting closer to GMAT-level questions.

    Jeff and Scott are both great teachers who really know their stuff and have put together a very straight forward yet comprehensive online platform that really enhances your ability to drill on specific subjects.

    Before working with Target Test Prep I had taken an in-person course with Manhattan Prep where I had a good teacher in my class but felt that I needed more one-on-one assistance. The private sessions with the instructor Manhattan had set me up with were awful as the person just repeated the same basic tactics I had learned in class instead of working with me to learn my strengths.

    Working with Jeff was a 180 from my experience with the Manhattan tutor. Jeff really paid attention to how I worked through problems and would deviate from the tactics they teach when he felt I would benefit from it. It was also clear that Jeff had a great understanding of what its like to take the exam and the type of questions that will actually appear on the exam because he is has taken it numerous times just keep up to date on what GMAC is doing.

    I also can’t say enough about the studying platform that Jeff and Scott have put together. One of my biggest pet peeves with using Manhattan’s online platform was that you couldn’t construct short practice sets online across various subjects to simulate working through questions on the actual exam.

    If you are looking for a way to hone in on your quant skills and work through problem sets you won’t be able to find elsewhere I highly recommend starting up a Target Test Prep subscription and working with Jeff and Scott one-on-one.

    Target Test Prep is your best option to study for GMAT quant especially if you plan to self-study. I was able to increase my quant score from 42 to 49 in just 1 month. Their study plans are tailored to whatever time and goals you have. I realized during their 5 day trial, how much time and money I wasted with other test prep materials.

    Having studied and taken the GMAT before, I decided to self-study this time. After studying on my own for 3 months with Kaplan and Manhattan GMAT, I was fairly confident I could get my target score. The week leading up to the test, I started to stress and doubt if I was ready to take the test because my quant score was not where I wanted it to be. It was during that time that I read about TTP in a post on Beat the GMAT. I used TTP’s 5 day trial for some extra practice before test day. On test day, I ended up scoring a 100 points lower than my previous score.

    I decided to retake the test one month later in order to have time to apply to my top schools by R2. I really liked what I had seen on TTP during the trial and decided TTP was my best option to increase quant in such a short period of time. I followed TTP’s short term study plan 95% of the time. TTP provides so many questions to practice each concept that I was able to identify the type of question and how to approach it before I was done reading the question. Their analytics tool was really helpful in showing me which areas I understood well and which areas I should spend some more time reviewing. After that 1 month, I knew I would score better on quant.

    During the actual test, I was completely comfortable with every quant question. I never felt like the questions were too hard to answer. I believe that because I practiced over 1500 questions, I just knew how to approach the questions without any trouble. A lot of the questions looked easy but I was able to catch hidden tricks because of all the practice questions I did. TTP helped me reach my goal of 720!

    You can’t go wrong studying with TTP. It will be the smartest investment you will make in your b-school journey.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: GPA matters no matter what others say so if your GPA is lower than the class average, consider addressing it in your application. Even though you don't want to draw attention to it, admissions will notice it anyway and if you have a good reason for why it is lower, it could make the difference between getting an offer and ending up on the waitlist.

    I highly recommend Target Test Prep as a GMAT study program, for a variety of reasons. The website itself is extremely user-friendly, and all of the content is contained there, so instead of lugging textbooks around, you can simply log in from anywhere and continue studying. The content is organized, comprehensive, and as simple or challenging as you need it to be, depending on where you are in your preparation. You can design your own practice tests, and get some detailed analytics on where your weaknesses are, and what you need to focus on. I also did one-on-one tutoring with Jeff Miller, which made a world of difference. Jeff became more than just a tutor to me, he became a sounding board, and a friend, and I truly appreciated having him to lean on during the GMAT process. The guys at Target Test Prep truly care about their product, and they care deeply about their students’ success. I highly recommend TTP, regardless of where you are on your GMAT journey.

    I started my GMAT studies using Manhattan Prep materials and on-demand course. It helped me to increase my quant & verbal scores up to one point. Then, I hit a plateau and started to wonder what I was doing wrong since I couldn’t get to my target score. I’m so glad that I’ve come across Target Test Prep course. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning and I decided to take a trial course instead. Having previous experience with another GMAT prep course, I quickly recognized how this content material was different and more comprehensive compared to others. This is a web-based learning platform and I found it very easy to use and quick to adapt – there’s even a dashboard to keep track of your studies and practice. Also, there was no shortage of practice exercises per sections and it helped me tremendously to improve my weak areas. I took private lessons with Jeff Miller, a top notch instructor, who gave me valuable insights in how to tackle tough GMAT questions using a systematic approach. In the end, I was able to increase my GMAT score in 100-point after 5 weeks of study. Therefore, I highly recommend Target Test Prep course.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Your GMAT score is an important component of your application and you'd need to plan ahead and set a realistic timeframe for your GMAT studies given your current knowledge gaps. Give yourself plenty of time to complete your GMAT studies and then focus on your application. Do not try to do it all at the same time, otherwise you'll set yourself up for failure.

    I’ve used just about every GMAT prep curriculum out there and nothing comes close to that of Target Test Prep. There is no fluff in the Target Test Prep material. It is simply straightforward GMAT concepts broken out by topic, and each topic immediately gets to the meat of what you need to know. There is nothing as good as TTP – period.
    In addition to using the TTP Quant course, I met with a TTP tutor every few weeks for supplemental instruction. He focused me on the most important concepts (where I would see the most profit). My quant score went from 44 to 48 within a few short months. I ended up with a 720, which was 20 points beyond my goal! If you’re studying for the GMAT, do yourself a favor and use TTP. You will not regret it.
