## GMAT Course Format

The Manhattan Review GMAT course is designed to feel like a condensed graduate-level university course. In other words, the course follows a format that is familiar for students preparing for the GMAT. It includes, lectures, question-and-answer sessions, collaborative student projects, homework problems that reinforce coursework, reviews, and in-person and online office hours for direct personal assistance from instructors. The primary content areas – math, statistics and grammar – are comprehensively studied to ensure mastery of foundational concepts.

For the essay portion of the GMAT, the Analytical Writing Assessment, the class identifies all the essential elements that earn top scores for an AWA essay and then writes a top-scoring essay collaboratively. This method allows students to identify essay strengths and weaknesses in an interactive setting and share ideas as they build a successful essay. The Integrated Reasoning Section, the newest section of the test, is thoroughly reviewed to prepare students for this section's unusual question formats.

## In-Depth Instruction on the GMAT Content

Our instructors drill down into each test question to make sure students understand the question, know how to solve it and can identify the best time-saving techniques to use. Students learn the academic principles underlying the problems and they also learn the best strategy to use to ensure that problems are solved efficiently, without wasting valuable time. Lectures, practice exercises and question-and-answer sessions are employed to ensure that students fully grasp the problem and the best approach for solving it.

## Intensive GMAT Test Preparation

Manhattan Review's GMAT course provides intensive test preparation on a schedule that students can fit into their busy lives. Students spend three hours in class each week and ideally devote seven to eight hours a week (as little as an hour a day) to homework and practice exercises. Each weekly class covers specific GMAT subjects, and the homework and practice tests following the class reinforce the lessons learned during the class lecture. Classes will cover more foundational content in the beginning of the course, stepping up to the most complex work as the course progresses. This structure of allowing students to focus on one subject each week helps students to fully master each area before moving to the next one.

The classroom is interactive and students are encouraged to ask questions and work out problems in class with the help of the instructor and their peers. In addition, instructors are available for one-on-one help through in-person office hours before and after class or online office hours at other times during the week. Students can also email questions to their instructors anytime. The interactive and collaborative portion of the class helps students network with each other and fosters a sense of community among classmates.
