    Good for practicing questions on line, so that you can be prepared for the real test. Also, gives a personal analysis on performance, which helped me prepare efficiently.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: What do you want to get out of MBA? How do you envision your career to be? What do you value in life? Please deeply think about what YOU are about, and choose a school that suite YOU. It's really not about the rankings. Good luck!

    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.

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

    • 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.

    • 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.

    Really convenient but my actual score was far below my indicative score.

    • 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?

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Research the schools well. What may not work for others may work for you and vice-versa.
