Do I really have to?
It's probably been awhile since you've taken a standardized exam like the GMAT or GRE. It may be tempting to opt for a graduate program that doesn't require them, but the quality of education, career services, and networking opportunities at top programs are invaluable. PrepCorps is here to make sure that you maximize your potential as a grad school applicant and get on track to your dream job.
Why choose PrepCorps?
PrepCorps is a test prep company just like any other -- except that profits go to the children instead of to a CEO's pocket. Students can choose between taking a course or working one-on-one with a tutor. Check out our course offerings and select the one that best fits your level and price range.
What sets PrepCorps apart?
Other than our highly qualified tutors and tailored curriculum, the PrepCorps team is also motivated by a powerful social mission that sets us apart from other test prep brands. Any profits made beyond of compensating tutors and operating costs will benefit the SuperKids Foundation in Paraguay. Our goal is to sponsor literacy and life skills education for hundreds of at-risk children.
I want an MBA. Which exam should I take?
When comparing standardized exams, it's tough to say which is the better choice without examining prospective applicants on a case-by-case basis. Keep in mind that the vast majority of MBA applicants take the GMAT, and that some programs do not accept the GRE. The PrepCorps team is happy to answer any specific questions you may have about whether the GRE or GMAT is a better choice for you individually.
When is the best time to take the GMAT/GRE?
Whenever you have the most time to study! Your scores lasts five years, so we recommend that you consider taking it as early as possible (cough, undergrad seniors) while you're still in study mode. Plus, a high score could be a great resume builder even before your MBA program!
How many hours should I dedicate to studying?
It really depends on your starting point. Our full 8-week course includes a three-hour session and six to ten hours of homework each week. This should carry you most of the way through, but plan to take at least 4-5 practice tests before the big day as well.
I signed up for one section but now I want to take the entire course. Can I change my mind?
You can change your mind up until the class starts. After the first class, you can add the other section as well if space allows. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any change requests.
Which textbook do you use?
We believe that past GMAT questions offer the best study experience because they are straight from the testmaker. Our tutors use the Official Guides, supplemented by additional PrepCorps materials. The study guide can be purchased via Amazon in Kindle or hard copy formats and we supply the rest. We also recommend Magoosh online resources, which provide additional practice tests and more in-depth answer explanations. Ask us for a coupon code!
