Having gone through self-prep without having Apex’s guidance, the exposure to the different ways of thinking about the problems enhanced my creative problem-solving skills which were beneficial not only for the test but to any other situation that requires this skill.


GMAT Score: 710
School: Berkeley Haas

Before working with Apex, I took a practice test and got a 580, after working with Apex, I got a 710. Having worked with other test prep companies previously, it quickly became apparent that Apex’s method and approach to the test was different and I felt that the Apex method would accelerate my learning of the test.

After working with Apex I could look at a problem and know exactly what they were testing me on and the steps that I needed to take to get to the desired solution. They were always there to help and offered multiple solution paths in case the first one did not resonate.

Apex’s approach of looking at different solution paths and understanding the GMAT’s various underlying problem forms helped me to start thinking like a test writer, not a test taker. Even in a short amount of time working together, this mindset is the key difference that I credit with my score improvement.

I felt like Apex was in my camp and in my corner, really making sure that I was putting my best foot forward and that I was going to get the best possible score that I could. The support system that was in place was great and the experience was seamless.

The skills I learned at Apex carried over into business school, helping me achieve better scores because of my way of thinking and the tools that I had to tackle problems that they presented us with.


GMAT Score: 740
School: Harvard University

After working with Apex on my GMAT prep I scored a 740 on the exam and received admissions into 3 programs: Wharton, Harvard and MIT. I have decided to accept the Harvard MBA admissions. I had two goals when I came to Apex: 1. To reduce my nervousness and 2. to score within the range of 720 – 730 in order to apply to the schools I wanted to attend.

Amanda: Working with Apex to improve my GMAT score and for admissions consulting was a wonderful experience.

Kyle: I wouldn’t be in business school if I hadn’t gone through this process, not only from a scoring standpoint but also from a mental preparation standpoint.

The best thing is that every session isn’t scripted, it is catered to me and my needs and adjusted based on the skills that I have and the progression that I am making. If my tutors realize that I am having difficulties with a problem they readjust the plan to make sure that I am successful.

What I took away from the first meeting, was not only was Mike willing to spend an hour and a half on the phone with me trying to understand who I was, what my background was, what it is that I wanted, which was absolutely night and day with the other firms that I spoke to. There was this idea that it was going to be tailored to me and the skills that I wanted to get out of the prep.

The instructors at Apex were an invaluable resource to me, they completely understood the process, they made me very comfortable. The ease of working with Apex was what I enjoyed the most. I was amazed by how much I was able to take in in such a short space of time. Understanding the success that Apex has had made me feel confident that they were a good choice.

When I started working with Apex we mostly focused on improving my stress and anxiety. So we worked on different kinds of breathing exercises and on different problem solving techniques that were not the usually math solutions. Once I was able to get comfortable with these techniques my speed and score increased a lot. It was a good mix of stress management and thinking out of the box.
