Apex's Curriculum is Unmatched
Apex has the most comprehensive syllabus on the market today. Covering not only traditional test-prep sections, Apex takes care to address test anxiety, time management, applying abstract thinking, and using the test against itself. Our core philosophy is that, as teachers, we're directly responsible for your performance, and our 150% guarantee is the manifestation of that belief.
Problems are answered in multiple ways to emphasize the importance of taking different paths to the same answer, and how path selection can influence results.

Lesson: Time Management
More than anything, the GMAT is about time. Time management is one of the most crucial skills for obtaining the best GMAT score, yet most programs give it nothing more than a cursory glance.
Lesson: Successful Self-Prep
For every hour you spend in class or with a tutor, you spend three or more studying on your own. Your time is valuable, and getting the most out of your study time is a critical component of your prep.
Lesson: Integrated Reasoning
The newest section of the GMAT has a lot of people on edge - with good reason. Complex, demanding, and multi-dimensional - it is designed to be un-preppable. Fortunately, we know better; the IG is simply a synthesis of more basic problems, not a truly "new" section.
Lesson: Let the Test do the Work
The core of Apex's philosophy is expounded in this lesson. Here we examine why so many successful people struggle with the GMAT.
Lesson: Cognitive Pathways & Prompting
How you approach problems has a lot to do with how you're "wired". Some people draw pictures, some think in equations, while others just come up with the right answer.
Lesson: The AWA Writing Section
A source of anxiety for many, this section not only is the least structured on the GMAT, but as the first section it sets the tone for the entire exam.
Lesson: Quantitative Fundamentals
The start of a strong quantitative score comes with the mastery and appropriate application of the fundamentals. You can't build a house without lumber and tools; these are the fundamentals. But, you also need a carpenter - this is the application.
Lesson: Advanced Quantitative Techniques
The GMAT is about being creative, and there are often multiple ways to solve a seemingly simple problem.
The core competency for the quantitative section of the GMAT, Algebra is involved in well over 50% of all problems. Unfortunately, most quantitatively strong individuals have bad habits when it comes to application, often setting up problems the same way they were taught in primary school.
As a mathematical discipline, Geometry often ranks second-fiddle in most people's schooling. As an often forgotten or unfamiliar discipline, Geometry problems are of primary importance in developing a strong Quantitative score.
Lesson: Advanced GMAT Mathematics
What separates the good from the truly great Quantitative scores is mastery of esoteric mathematical concepts, from probability to number theory, combinatorics to abstract algebra.
Lesson: Reading Comprehension
Do you really know how to read? "Of course" you say, until reading comprehension comes along and calls all that into question. The truth is, we read the same way we listen - passively, picking up relevant details but rarely engaging the material. Its this natural (and often productive) tendency which the GMAT exploits.
Lesson: Sentence Correction
Often one of the most confusing GMAT sections, native English speakers learn that they can't trust their "ear", while non-native speakers struggle with the complex and irregular English grammar.
Lesson: Critical Reasoning
So, this is a Verbal problem, right? Guess again! An ingenious stroke on the part of the GMAT writers would have you believe that, only to find that viewing CR like that is folly.

"180 point improvement on the GMAT. Got into Harvard and Booth. Not much more to say." -B.P. Philadelphia, PA
