GMAT tutorials

Last updated: 20 Apr 2009

Our tutorials break your GMAT study down into manageable chunks. Each tutorial and the practice questions after them should take about an hour and a half to complete.

Introduction to the GMAT

This tutorial will take you through the basics of the GMAT, answering questions like "Do I need to take the GMAT?" and "What does the GMAT test?".

This where you should start your GMAT study.

Quantitative tutorials

These tutorials will take you through the basic mathematics required for the quantitative section of the GMAT and will give you plenty of tips on how to answer the questions at speed.

Verbal tutorials

These tutorials will give you the knowledge you need to be be able to tackle the GMAT's critical reasoning, reading comprehension and sentence corrections questions which test your logical reasoning, comprehension and grammar respectively.

Advanced writing assessment tutorials

These tutorials will provide you with a framework for writing the 30 minutes essays required in the GMAT.

We will be adding further tutorials over the coming months.

  2. First I want to thank you this website for coming in the help of people that cannot afford to spend thousands of $ in the preparation for GMAT test.
    I took the GMAT once - just to see the difficulty of the questions encountered - to aproximately figure out the range of the score. I am planning to take it again at the end of July this time for real- with confirmation of sending the results to the Universities.
    I think for many people that study for GMAT Data Sufficiency is a big deal to be cracked when you reach harder questions.Can we be helped by this website much more in this direction???

    I have to read from my memory, because at GMAT as you know you cannot take notes - I encountered two kinds of problems for which I did not have any clue. I haven't solve something similar before and I was taken by surprise.

    I want to share with GMAT comunity people these two kind of problems appeared on the official GMAT test.

    Problem #1 A trust fund is composed by stocks, bonds and savings in the ratio 3:1:5. If the amount in stocks and bonds was 10.000 how much was invested in savings?

    Problem #2 from Data Sufficiency section
    A company bought desks of $150 and chairs of $50. Can it buy 40 desks?

    a) The total cost of the purchases was $500
    b) It bought fewer than 20 chairs.

    Hope to get feedback as soon as possible

    I saw somebody who wrote on the website that "Word Problems" does not sound like a big deal at the GMAT, but I can say that Word Problems in Data Sufficiency can be a real burden!

  4. Sagar, I plan to add print versions of both the tutorials and the questions so that you can print them off and read that at your leisure.

    Would this meet your needs?

  5. I would love to see a print version. Any idea when that would be ready? So far the site looks good, I have just begun prep for the test.

  6. I'll make it my next task, so it'll probably be early June.

  7. stocks =s
    bonds =b
    savings =v

    s:b:v = 3:1:5

    s/b = 3/1 ------eqn 1
    s+b = 10000 ---- eqn 2
    Solving eqn 1 & 2 we get b=2500
    so V= 5*b = 5*2500 = 12500. This is the amount in savings.

  8. Print versions of all the tutorials are now available and can be found by clicking on the 'Print version' link at the bottom of the tutorials table of contents.

    For example see the print version of our introduction to the GMAT.

  9. Hello Joel,
    This is a fantastic site. I just registered as a member and solved the tutorial on number properties. The last two questions in the tutorial were tough and interesting. Will surely come back to your website to solve more tutorials.

    Overall the site looks great in terms of both content and navigation. I wish you and your team success.

  11. Hello Joel,
    This site is really useful, not only for GMAT but various other competitive exam like CAT (for IIMs in India), XAT (for XLRI in India).

    I have one request can you increase the number of practice question, then it will be really helpful.
