The GMAT is an exam where you can train, practice, and prepare to do well. Contrary to what others may tell you, the GMAT is not an intelligence test and is not a test of your innate abilities. However, there are no detours, no condensed recipes, and no insidious capsules to raise your GMAT scores. Reading a ‘100-page secrets’ report is not going to get you anywhere on the high percentile.

To tame the GMAT, you have to labor and study with the right tools and material organized to produce the correct regimen, given your goals and time constraints. You have to study hard, but you also have to study intelligently

Even in Rome at its most barbaric, there was a right way and a wrong way to throw a man to the beasts.

William Grimes, The New York Times, Dec 9, 2005

A good GMAT score cannot get you into a top-ranked MBA program, but a mediocre GMAT score can certainly keep you out of one! A top-ranked MBA program likes and wants to accept applicants with high GMAT scores (provided other requirements are met) because this boosts the average GMAT score of its incoming class, which feeds its ranking, which helps it be more selective…(did you notice the virtuous cycle?)

GMAT Score courses are ideal for students who want to get it right the first time, and want to study diligently to get a high score in their first (and probably their last) attempt at the GMAT.

If you are looking to rehabilitate your previous GMAT score to be able to apply to more competitive MBA programs, GMAT Score courses can help you immensely. If you have already taken the GMAT test, we can help you can score higher than in your previous, perhaps abortive, attempts. GMAT Score courses will help you Identify your weak areas, if you have not already done so. Most MBA programs will use your highest score, so the number of your attempts on your GMAT will not be held against you.

GMAT Score courses are test-centric. Many courses purport teaching the strategies, and leave test taking and practicing under real test conditions as an afterthought or a take home; in GMAT Score courses, you start taking tests in the first week. You learn by taking tests, by looking at your mistakes you made in these tests, and by understanding how to avoid these pitfalls. You take a look at the detailed solutions, tips and tricks, and train under simulated test conditions designed to mimic the real test as closely as possible. Just like a pilot in training who goes through hundreds of hard landings in a flight simulator in order to perfect the soft landing we expect and take for granted, so you will train till you feel comfortable and confident in tackling all topics covered on the GMAT exam.

If, as we taxied out, there had been an emergency that required help from ground personnel, crash trucks and ambulances with their lights flashing would have raced to where we had stopped. From his console, the instructor can crank up the wind speed and change its direction. When he does, the blowing snow and the wind sock react to the changes. It's so real I felt cold. While we accelerated down the runway, the snow blew back—realistically—and we rotated and began to climb. As far as I was concerned, we were flying.

As Real as it Gets, by Tom Benenson, flying a $15 million flight simulator, June 2001
