# GMAT Test Preparation in Singapore

## The Manhattan Review Advantage

Manhattan Review doesn't just teach the GMAT, it teaches the underlying knowledge for mastering it. While some test prep companies focus on learning tricks for solving multiple choice problems, Manhattan Review makes sure that its students have a firm grasp of both the GMAT's structure and it's content.

Our intensive training leaves students fully familiar with the range of material covered in each section of the GMAT as well as the test's approach to assessing reasoning skills and its style of questioning. Students who complete Manhattan Review's GMAT course are academically ready for the test. They have also undergone rigorous training in how to approach each question and have an understanding of the thought process that went into developing test questions.

Founded by Professor Joern Meissner, who received a master's degree and PhD from Columbia Business School, Manhattan Review's intensive curriculum was developed partly based on Professor Meissner's work with Columbia MBA students. The US-based company's Singapore unit has specifically tailored its curriculum to build on the approach to math and quantitative instruction used in Singapore. Our tutors are Singapore students and professionals who have achieved GMAT scores in the 95th percentile or higher.

## Our Key to High Scores

Some students underestimate the importance of fully mastering the subject matter of the GMAT. There are a finite number of concepts and methods tested in the GMAT. Becoming fully proficient in all the quantitative and verbal concepts covered, from probability to geometry to the rules of English grammar, is hard, but very achievable.

Students who have completed Manhattan Review's GMAT test prep course have received thorough instruction on all the academic areas that the GMAT measures. They have also been trained to think like the test makers. They can recognize familiar patterns in test questions. They have an understanding of why different question formats are used to assess different skills and they can identify the best approaches for different question types.

## More Effective Studying with Manhattan Review

Manhattan Review helps students take their studying to the next level through a curriculum where in-class instruction, practice exercises, online problem sets and homework reinforce each other for maximum skill retention.

Practice questions help to both identify students' skills and weaknesses and put into practice concepts and techniques learned in class. Instructors review students' practice work to identify mistakes and correct misconceptions. As students master concepts, increasingly difficult coursework is introduced. Students then test their understanding of new concepts through another round of problem sets designed to mimic questions found on the actual GMAT test.

Each week's lesson includes:

- Practice exercises to ensure mastery of last week's lesson.
- In-class instruction to reinforce lessons from the previous week and introduce new work with an increasing level of difficulty.
- In-class exercises and online sample test questions to practice new coursework.
- Access to online office hours for extra help from instructors.
- Complete simulated GMAT tests that can be taken to measure progress.
