    THE ECONOMIST GMAT COURSE WAS VERY HELPFUL IN PROVIDING TRICKS, SHORTCUTS, AND PROCESSES TO DEAL WITH THE MOST COMMON AND MOST MISSSED QUESTIONS. I FOUBD THE MATH SEGWMENTS PARTICULARLY USEFUL IN THIS REGARD. THE COURSE IS WELL PACED, ORGANIZED, AND THE APP IS VERY WELL PUT TOGETHER.

    I found the economist Gmat tutor to be ExtRemely useful – the modules are adaptive and Thus tailor themselVes to work on your weaknesses once you complete the diagnostic tests. This saves you Prep time by helping you focus on areas you need the most help with. Good number of Realistic practice tests too which i found came closest to my actual score once i sat for the TeSt. A bit expEnsiVe reLative to other prep courses but the option to do a trial period helps you see if the Format is suited to your needs.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Don't underestiMate the value of a good Gmat score, or think you can make up for a poor score with other aspects of your application. Unless you are truly outstanding in some other area, a poor score is a real disaDvanTage.

    free tests are very useful and were accurate compared to my actual test results. I would recommend signing up based on that alone. the app was also useful in being able to refresh certain concepts in 5 or 10 minute increments and helped cement understanding. HOWEVER, practice material was minimally useful for more experienced test takers. It definitely helped expand knowledge but not necessarily worth the squeeze. The real problem is the limited explanations on why practice problems were right or wrong. the online tutors were not very responsive or helpful. while the practice tests and app are worthwhile, I think time would be better spent working problems in various books instead.

    Thanks to The Economist GMAT tool i was able to increase my gmat score from 570 to 690, which eventually got me accepted at my target school. It is great for those who have busy lives as it allows you to select short sessions when you are sitting on the train to work or waiting for friends. the program is adaptive and therefore helps you focus more on your weaknesses. Explanations are usually clear and teach you how the gmat test reasons. One downside is that there is no list of all theory/principles which makes it sometimes difficult retrieve any piece of theory you wish to revise.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Lundquist College of Business/ 2018
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: AS many HAVE SAID BEFORE ME, START EARLY. EVERYTHING FROM THE GMAT, ESSAYS TO RECOMMENDATIONS TOOK A me longer then expected and I ended up submitting my application the evening before the deadline. dare to share your personal history in your essays and use all parts of your application to complement each other.

    The service was excellent. The course adapted to my weaknesses and helped me overcome obstacles that stumped me. The math was great and had a lot of questions on each topic. Verbal was easy and taught in an easy to understand way. My score went from 680 to 710 because of this course. Highly recommended

    I signed up for their trial which let you take a mock GMAT test for free. In my experience, their mock test is not as similar to the mock test provided by Manhattan. It is still useful however, especially if you are still early in the preparation stage. I do not know it’s worth paying the price for the tutor service, however.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Vanderbilt Owen School of Management
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Start early. Get the GMAT out of the way as soon as you can. I studied every single day for 3 months to prepare for this test and did quite well on the first run - overall, I think that's what it takes to do well on this test. Given its importance on your admission result and even scholarship package, it's worth putting in the time and effort for this portion.

    The Economist GMAT prep worked well for me. I didn’t love how it switched back and forth between quant and verbal, since the test doesn’t do that, but there are ways to work through the program on your own to focus only on one section at a time. I wish I had used the tutoring sessions earlier, too. Overall it’s a solid program and I got the score I wanted.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Georgetown McDonough School of Business/2018
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Start early! Ask for your recommendations at least two months in advance. Everything takes a lot longer than you expect it to. Print your resume and have it nearby as you have to input everything about your work and education experience in several different places. Aim to apply round 1 if you can, and give yourself plenty of time. Ask as many people for advice on your essays as you feel comfortable.

    I absolutely loved this program–the way they timed you on the math questions was hugely helpful. Bonus: they have a money-back guarantee if your score doesn’t improve by a certain amount–be sure to read the fine print on this one and it could save you a lot of money!

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: MIT Sloan/2019
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Be sure to use the extra essay to let something about yourself shine through or to explain any gaps in your application. Don't repeat themes in your application and networking counts bigtime in applying to business school--the Sloan application actually asked who from MIT I had been in touch with in the process.

    This program was great for both a long term plan and a weekend of crash studying. I would recommend this to anyone who is going to take the GMAT. The best thing about this program is that you actually learn in the context of questions from the exam but not from questions only..

    Economist was great! It does a fantastic job of building up from the basics. Every topic covered has a number of practice problems and the test adapts to your weaknesses and builds on them. I would highly recommend this course.

    Cons:
    The tests seem to poorly coded. I got one test where the entire quant section was only one type of problems (data sufficiency).

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: You need find your story and highlight the important points. There is no cookie cutter method to achieve this. Come across as a human being and highlight the skills that you possess and what you want to take away from the MBA

    This was a fairly decent tool that provided easy on the go ways to prepare for the GMAT. That said, it could use some improvements. Notably it would be better if you could move back and forth more freely in each section. Second, the ability to print hard copies or have more access to your underlying data would be extremely helpful. Finally, more access to experts and live tutors beyond the minimum provided would be helpful, as some concepts are just easier explained by a human being.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Stern / 2017
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Start early, and get the GMAT out of the way in the first six months of the year. Don't underestimate how important scores are to the schools despite the fact they say they look at the "whole person."

    The Economist GMAT Tutor was the absolute best prep course I found while going through the studying process. The interactive nature of the program allowed for personalized structure and the ability to focus on your weaker areas of the GMAT test.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: University of Texas at Austin / 2019
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Be yourself. The admissions committees don't want your average application where you hit every "buzz" word that you think they are looking for. They genuinely want to get to know you who are as an individual, what your short-term and long-term goals are, and why you would fit into the school's culture.

    The Economist GMAT Tutor site was phenomenal. It definitely aided in preparing me for the GMAT. It hones in very specific tools and strategies needed to excel at this test. This prep also aided in identifying your strengths and weaknesses. Once your weaknesses were identified, it targeted areas that you should work on. The site provided practice tests that were similar to actual GMAT test. Being afforded the opportunity to take a practice test very similar to the actual test made it easier to navigate through the real test. This site took everything step by step to ensure the GMAT would not be overwhelming.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Middle Tennessee State Univeristy/ In Process
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: My advice would be that the sky is not the limit. Reach for the stars. Yes, the application may be taxing or even intimidating, but don't give up. Apply and you will succeed. Also, choose a school that best fits you.

    I absolutely LOVED this program. I’m a dad with 3 kids, so finding a long chunk of time to study was hard. I mostly had 15 minutes here and there. With this program, I didn’t have to spend time setting things up. I simply told it how long I had to study, and the program would automatically build a study session for me. The software adapts to your weak areas, so you know you’re being efficient with your time.

    Timing was also a big issue for me. I tended to spend too long on questions. The Economist GMAT tutor has a lot of great features to help out with that so you learn how to gauge your time per question.

    I used another very popular program and it didn’t help me at all. I wish I would have done The Economist GMAT program first.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: BYU Marriott School of Business / 2016
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Have you seen how much some schools want in tuition? It's crazy! Make sure you look at the price tag and what the range of salaries are for graduates. Don't just use the average. Look at the low end to see how bad the worst case scenario could be. Several thousand dollars in debt is a big burden to shoulder. Have fun while you study and write applications. You want to be in a good mood and not stressed out when you get an interview.

    I love how adaptive it was and how it helped me focus on the areas where I needed the most help. I also found the tips they included incredibly useful. I studied for the GMAT on a tight timetable and this was by far the most useful preparation software I found.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Brigham Young University, 2016
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Really think about what you want to do after you get the degree. This will impact the school you go to as well as help you focus on particular companies and areas of study during the program. If you just go for a school based off the rating, you may not end up with the company contacts you need in order to secure an offer with your dream position.

    I really liked the GMAT adaptability software. Moreover, I liked the interface, it encouraged you to work through your problems. I found near the end however, it got a little repetitive and I started to plateau and it didn’t have great tools to get me across the plateau. That said, it was still a great instruction system for people of all levels. I was looking for a tool to help me get 700+ and it did that and more.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: University of Oxford, 2016
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Start thinking about your personal narrative early, and match it to your application. My applications got stronger as I had time to develop my narrative, though I wish I would've considered it much earlier to have stronger early applications. Also, highly recommend the international MBA experience.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: UC berkeley haas sChool of business
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: The main piece of advice I would give you before applying to any MBA program is to do some serious introspective reflection. Think long and hard about how your life has evolved so far, your values, the mistakes you have made and what you have learned from these experiences. In general, admissions officers look for several key things in your essays: Why do you want to pursue an MBA? Why now? Why here? What will be your unique contribution to our community?
