    Princeton Review IS a great preparation tool FOR ME. I USED IT ALMOST EVERYDAY. They offer weekly practice exams along with helping to keep you on track. BEFORE I USE PRINCETONG REVIEW, I WAS REALLY LOST BEFORE I ACTUALLY HIT IT. PRINCETON REVIEW ALSO INDENTIFY WHAT IS GOOD AND WHT IS BAD FOR YOU. TO ME, IT WAS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT. IN ADDITION, I LIKE THE 1 ON 1 SESSION, WHICH KEEP ME FRESH. The amount of work is DEAL with SOMETIMES IF YOU HAVE A TOUGH FULL TIME JOB. but IN THE END, IT IS STILL WORTH IT.

    While the review was expensive, the individualized attention certainly helped me develop my skills. Most of the work was done by me outside of meeting with the tutor, but the sessions were always helpful.

    I chose Princeton review in 2013 because it was close to where I lived, it offered a weekend course and I found the instructor very engaging. I’ve sat in others where I instructor put me to sleep so I highly recommend people to sit in the first class. I felt that the instructor was great but Princeton did not offer enough material to prep. There was the standard official GMAC GMAT book that you can get on Amazon and 2 workbooks from Princeton – one in class workbook and one for prepping before a class. Those two workbooks seemed very minimal to me compared to the entire set of books from Manhattan or veritas where you have an entire book to drill down on specific areas. The online practice tests were pretty standard as well compared to other test prep companies out there.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Look up essay questions from last year as they do not deviate much. Start drafting stories before the real essay questions are released. Call current students to get a better understanding of the value of the school. Breathe and good luck!

    My preparation that was given to me was first class. I was able to get a very firm grasp on what the test would be like before I walked in to take it. I also was taught how to handle a situation where a question comes up that I don’t know the answer to and how to work through it.

    I ended up getting a private tutor through Princeton review and it was extremely efficient. I highly, highly recommend this- you can get the same amount of help for ~the same price (if you only do 1 hour/week) and you spend far less time in class.

    I used the Princeton Review GMAT preparation materials and found them to be the best place for starting my studies and gaining a very informative introduction to the GMAT exam. Other resources that I tried to use at the start seemed overly complicated and did not give me as clear an explanation of the basic concepts and structure of the GMAT. The Princeton Review preparation materials were very easy to use, organized, and provided some very useful tips and tricks to increase speed and accuracy in solving problems. I highly recommend their resources in preparing for the GMAT.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Be yourself. Not all MBA programs are alike and being authentic with who you are and the unique skills that you can bring to a program will help you to stand out. Also, make sure to have some people review your application materials before you send them off in order to get valuable feedback on how you are presenting your story and to make sure that you have highlighted key aspects of your experience and education. Your resume, cover letter, and answers to essay questions (where applicable) all give you the opportunity to show your strengths - and will hopefully open the door to an interview with a program. So make sure you put in your time not just on studying for the GMAT, but also on preparing your other resources as best you can.

    Good review and focused instruction.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: Tepper School of Business/2018
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Start the process early. Prioritize admissions requirements. Don't just focus on a single requirement; e.g. GMAT scores, while paying no attention to others like essay or interview prep. Lastly, have others review your paperwork or allow at least 3 self-reviews in different days before formally submitting. Don't allow mistakes speak on your behalf.

    Princeton Review was a great preparation tool. They offer weekly practice exams along with helping to keep you on track with math and verbal concept reviews. They also helped you focus on what areas will improve your score the most. I signed up for a small group class which was even more helpful as we got a lot of 1 on 1 instruction with the course proctor. The amount of work is tough to keep up with (along with the 2 classes per week, each 3 hours long), but it is undeniably worth it come exam time!

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Take as many practice exams as you can. Book problems don't increase in difficulty as you get them right; the practice exams are much more useful.
