  GMAT Test Prep: A User's Guide By Francesca Di Meglio – 8/10/09 Not all GMAT test-preparation services are created equal. Use this guide to find out which one is right for you Your GMAT exam score, while only one part of your business school admissions application, can be the difference between getting accepted or rejected at your first-choice school. In fact, 55% of the 250 MBA admissions officers who responded to the 2008 Kaplan Business School Admissions Survey said the GMAT is the most important factor in the business school application. While schools look at the complete package, they will be turned off by a lower-thanaverage GMAT score, which they use to determine how successful you will be academically. That's why many applicants spend a great deal of time preparing for the GMAT—and doing whatever they can to increase their score. Often, they turn to test-prep companies for help. In the past few years, these companies have worked to improve their online offerings and create more personalized materials and courses. "We don't believe in one-size-fits-all. We respect the fact that the students who come to our class are not all at the exact same level," says Scott Shrum, director of MBA Admissions Research at Veritas Prep. "It is our job to know the GMAT and arm you with the tools." Indeed, Shrum's competitors agree that offering personalized attention is a must for today's test-taker—from homework assignments based on your particular weaknesses to computer readouts analyzing your GMAT results, helping you decide where to concentrate your efforts. Whether you haven't looked at a geometry problem since the 10th grade or are an engineer exposed to various quant problems everyday, GMAT test-prep companies are aiming to get your attention. And judging from your comments on Business Week's Business School Forum they have apparently succeeded. If you're thinking about preparing for the GMAT, you have a wide range of options—from taking the free practice tests offered by GMAC, the creators of the GMAT, and studying on your own, to private tutoring with one of the test-prep         www.manhattaneliteprep.com info@manhattaneliteprep.com GMAT/GRE/TOEFL/SAT/MCAT/LSAT Prep | +1-646-873-6656 Admissions Advice Academic Prep

  programs. The best way to determine what course of study is right for you is to take a practice test first, then determine a reasonable goal, and then decide which, if any, program would help you arrive at it. Here is what you can get out of some of the more popular GMAT test-prep companies: MANHATTAN ELITE PREP Tracy Yun, CEO of Manhattan Elite Prep, puts a premium on time. "Time is the greatest constraint on preparation," she says. "We want to teach students the fastest approaches. We want to give them the essentials in the shortest time." Her company offers an intensive one-week course, a weekend course, four- and eight-week classes, six weekend sessions, nine live online sessions, and a selfstudy option. The fee for all these courses includes unlimited access to 100-plus hours of online course material. Prices range from $675 for the self-study package to $1,650 without the early-bird special for the one-week course. With testing locations in 60 cities and 10 countries Manhattan Elite Prep is available for students in New York, London, Zurich, and Hong Kong, to name a few places. Flexibility—offering packages that combine face-to-face classes with online and tutoring in many cities—is one of Manhattan Elite Prep’s biggest strengths, says Yun. Typically, scores increase 60 to 120 points after taking the course, according to self-reported data from students, says Yun. Students who fail to reach their target score or improve their scores get free access to unlimited class hours, Manhattan Elite Prep’s online library, and expert advice. Manhattan Elite Prep offers TOEFL and GRE courses and tutoring, too. This GMAT program of study requires more self discipline because you have less face time with instructors but access to lots of other materials online. It's also smaller and less well known, at least with Americans, than some other test prep services. Bottom Line: Manhattan Elite Prep is a great fit for procrastinators, those who can't fit the GMAT into their busy schedule, and anyone who prefers cramming for tests. It's also on the pricey side, so you have to be willing to make an investment. http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/content/aug2009/bs20090810_272443_ page_4.htm         www.manhattaneliteprep.com info@manhattaneliteprep.com GMAT/GRE/TOEFL/SAT/MCAT/LSAT Prep | +1-646-873-6656 Admissions Advice Academic Prep
