As many of you who are reading this blog are well aware - if you're looking to get into business school, most MBA programs require that you take the GMAT and each school has a target range that you want to hit to make sure that you don't reduce your chances of getting admitted which is why so many students look for a variety of ways to improve their choice. 

There are a lot of choices out there such as visiting various websites (like this one), purchasing GMAT prep books, using a private tutor, or taking a GMAT prep course among other options.  Depending on your study method, your budget and your overall knowledge of the topics covered on the GMAT will dictate what options are better for you. 

With that said, I'd like to discuss 800score.com which provides online prep material for both the GRE and GMAT and which in my opinion should be of your overall strategy for cracking the GMAT, regardless of what other avenues you decide to pursue in terms of study material. 

The reason why I'm such a big fan of 800score.com is because it's very affordable ($39.95) and yet even at such a low cost, it provides a comprehensive overview of the material that you'll be facing when you take the GMAT, strategies to use and that will help beginners as well as those that are more advanced as well as 5 CAT practice exams.

If you go to the 800 score website, you can even take a sample CAT exam (Quant portion) as well as take a few practice essays to see if the program is right for you. This all comes with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee where if you are unsatisfied, you can email them with your issues and receive credit back. 

If you do decide that you want to use the program, you can easily download all the material as well as the tests. On top of everything else that's provided, 800score provides 24-hour tutor support - you can email a tutor at any time and you'll typically receive a response within 24 hours.

Some other great features of 800score's GMAT review program:
  • Video (see below) and flash explanations 
  • Comprehensive explanations
  • Forum  where you can get support and discuss questions with other students
  • Unique strategies (some of which have been published by BusinessWeek)

The bottom line when it comes to 800score is that the content of the course and the questions for the exams are well-written. The course is extensive,  containing hundreds of pages of material that's suitable for beginners as well as those that are more advanced. With it's affordable price, it just makes sense to include as part of your overall GMAT strategy, especially since the program has been reviewed so highly ( just check out the following 800score review).
