Prepare For Your Next GMAT Exam with Barron's Today! Going to graduate school is a big decision that many individuals are making today to help them get ahead. Having an MBA is one way to stand out from other candidates competing for the same job. It's also another way for employees to outpace co-workers when it's time for that promotion. An MBA provides business majors more training as well as the chance to get where they want to go.

An MBA requires getting into a decent business school which can be a challenge with the number of graduate students that apply each year. Having a strong GMAT score not only helps candidates meet the basic requirements of many colleges but it also highlights their knowledge to college admission professionals.

Magoosh

Cost:

$99 one-time fee

Magoosh was founded in 2008 by students at Berkley who felt there must be a better way to study for standardized tests than static text books and expensive tutoring. The focus on new technology and excellent customer service in the Magoosh GMAT test preparation learning system reflects this modern approach.

Magoosh has a simple interface with a lot of content. The technology allows students to log in to the learning system from any computer, tablet or smart phone which is a big plus in today's mobile world. The system is set-up so that each student gets a personalized dashboard that tracks lesson progress and question results, and suggests additional lessons based on the performance of the student. This interactive tool allows the student to focus quickly in areas on which they need to improve, rather than wasting time studying topics on which they are already strong.

As a student works through each customizable practice session there are lesson videos for each topic given by one of the Magoosh GMAT expert tutors. Then there are quizzes to go along with each lesson, and within the quizzes each question has its own video. So if a question is answered incorrectly, the student can review the question video and it will explain in detail what the correct answer is and why. This is a nice detail and very helpful to providing a better understanding of each question being asked. After each lesson the student receives a detailed performance analysis, each of which adds to the overall performance summary on the personalized dashboard. It really is a very succinct, organized system.

The cost is $99.00 for access to the complete learning system for one year. There is also an option to purchase just the math section, or just the verbal section, for $79.00. The $99.00 includes:

  • 250+ video lessons
  • 800+ questions with their own explanatory video- E-mail support from Magoosh expert tutors
  • Study schedules
  • Score predictor
  • 2 full GMAT practice exams

This is a lot of content, though not quite as many practice questions as we have seen with some of the other top GMAT study programs. The video lessons and quizzes are the core of the learning process, and the video library is extensive. Magoosh also offers two money back guarantees. One is a standard 7 day money back guarantee where students can receive a full refund if they don't like the system after using it for 7 days. The other is a score guarantee. For anyone who has already taken the GMAT and has a valid score, Magoosh promises to raise it by 50 points or delivery a full refund. This is a nice feature that makes Magoosh even more appealing. We would have likely given Magoosh our top ranking if it wasn't for the fewer videos and questions in the package, but make no mistake Magoosh is an excellent option for GMAT preparation.

But getting a solid GMAT score takes practice and training and that's where GMAT prep classes become necessary. A GMAT test prep course is a great way to improve your overall score. These courses vary greatly in format, features and cost. Choosing the right GMAT prep program can be a hard decision. No one wants to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on a program that doesn't fit to their personal learning needs.

When choosing a GMAT test prep program, you should look for the following:

  • Instruction Method. Is it a classroom setting or online? Can you anticipate lectures, mostly reading or some other form of teaching?
  • Format. Is the program available online, in hard copy, DVD, audio, web enabled and more. Do they have Smartphone apps to reinforce concepts on the go?
  • Price. What does the program cost, how does that compare to the competition and what is included in the price?
  • Use. If you are purchasing an online program how long will you have access to the study materials? Will that period be long enough?
  • Guarantee. If you aren't satisfied with your test score will you have to re-purchase the study materials or does the company offer a guarantee?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best GMAT Test Prep programs available today. We hope these reviews help you score high with your next GMAT exam!
