About Economist GMAT Tutor

The GMAT.economist.com is a GMAT testing prep company. They market directly to individuals on their smartphones, tablets, those on-the-move, and living in an app-based learning environment

Their GMAT tutor uses a mobile app (available for both iPhone and Android devices) to connect students with their studies, programs and other online content. When there’s no connectivity available, the app will still continue to run on it’s own. Naturally their package also comes with thousands of practice tests and essay guides.


Along with their virtual app-based tutor, there’s also individual attention available from staff members and an “Ask-A-Tutor” messaging service. They also feature a blog on their website with tips and tricks relating to Gmat testing. Their advice ranges from improving on exams to applying for scholarships.

The GMAT Economist uses a categorical type approach guiding students through each level of the exam, with personal markings given on the AWA (Analytical Writing Assessment), and then moving through to integrated reasoning, quantitative and verbal. They also use an adaptive learning model that assesses areas where the student may need more focus or improvement.

    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.

    Found the economist resources very useful in identifying my relative strengths and weaknesses. IN addition, the online resources were very helpful in strengthening areas that were identified.

    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.

    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.

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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.

    Great program for self learners. Tests were accurate and plentiful. Loved the predictive score forecast with confidence bounds.

    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..

    The Economist gamified GMAT preparation process making me well engaged through this not-the-most-exciting experience. Not sure I could get my 760 without their beautiful interactive program.
