GMAT Score: 700
School: Northwestern University, Kellogg
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.
GMAT Score: 690
School: Duke, Fuqua School of Business
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.
GMAT Score: 750
School: Georgetown McDonough
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.
GMAT Score: 730
School: University of Michigan, Ross
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.
GMAT Score: 710
School: London Business School
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 & Kyle
GMAT Score: Amanda: 720, Kyle: 650
School: Georgetown McDonough
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.
GMAT Score: 770
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.
ieGAT: Pass (The ieGAT is a PASS/FAIL exam)
School: Instituto de Empresa – IE
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.
EA Score: 157
School: Columbia University
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.
GMAT Score: 680
School: Columbia University
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.
Olga - EA
School: EMBA – Oxford
I’d like to thank Mike and Chris at ApexGMAT who helped me with my preparation for the EA exam.
When I began preparing, I was applying to an EMBA at Oxford, was very busy with my job – a full-time position – and had no previous experience with either the EA or the GMAT. To get admitted to this extremely competitive programme I needed a high EA score, and on the first attempt since time was really precious to me. I knew I needed the most efficient preparation.
I started self-prepping using all available resources including one online course. I was preparing the same way I had always prepared for the numerous exams I’ve taken throughout my life to become a physician – which I’ve successfully passed on the first attempt. I very quickly realized that the EA is very different from all my previous exams and my established methods of preparation are not working for me this time.
After reading about Apex’s individualized approach to each student, I made an appointment with Mike and talked to him for the first time. Apex’s method sounded very appealing to me, and that is exactly how it was since our first conversation – tailored to my personality, my way of learning, and my goals. Chris and Mike, my instructors, were absolutely amazing at putting me at ease – considering the fact that I turned to ApexGMAT completely stressed out about taking the EA, even close to panicking.
I was immensely impressed by their professionalism as teachers. The whole process of studying became very enjoyable and soon everything started to make sense. Chris is an absolute storehouse of knowledge, full of endless clever and very efficient tricks for studying. I ended up feeling fully confident and well prepared when going into an exam in which psychology plays an enormous role. This is something I realized only after starting my preparation with ApexGMAT.
I am living my dream now, pursuing an EMBA at Oxford, and I am truly grateful to Mike and Chris for their help in my preparation for the EA exam. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them.
N.A. - EA
I absolutely loved my experience with Apex and would highly recommend their services to anyone preparing for a standardized test. The curriculum and schedule was completely tailored to me and around my learning style and personality, which I very much appreciated. The instructors were thorough, organized, and above all kind and supportive. The lessons were rigorous yet relaxed, and the instructors offered constant support and guidance whenever I needed it during self-prep. They understood my academic and professional background and integrated my experience and learning style into my curriculum.
My mathematical foundation was quite limited, so I needed personalized coaching to be able to tackle the exam. It had been many years since I sat for a standardized exam, and knew I would benefit from one to one coaching on best strategies, a tailored studying curriculum and schedule, and support on pre-test nerves. The instructors were so knowledgeable, and well versed in different teaching styles. They would explain and reframe a concept in different ways to ensure I fully understood it. They were supportive and available on email and phone to go over self-prep, testing questions, and scheduling.

This past week I got an offer to join the Masters in Management program at the London Business School!
I wanted to thank you for all the help you provided me, not only with the GMAT but also with the guidance and support throughout the application process. I really can’t imagine that this would have been possible without it.

I tested today and scored a 700! (from a 620 when I first contacted you). I wanted to say thank you so much for your ongoing support — I appreciate your help through this process and can truly say Apex’s tutoring gave me a massive boost in both skills and confidence.
The techniques you taught me were invaluable in my self prep and directly contributed to the increase in my score.

“It’s like an epiphany. All of a sudden a lot of things have become very clear. I wasn’t able to describe this situation before, but now the entire framework makes it crystal clear. I can see myself really doing things in a better way just because now I know how to structure these concepts.” [after a first session on Data Sufficiency]
