My name is Ankit. I attempted the GMAT on 23rd October'12 and scored a 730(Q: 51 V:37. When I started preparing for GMAT in the month of June, I did not have much clue about what I was heading towards. MBA, GMAT were words that I had heard of, but I was totally unaware of the effort that a good score called for. Math, I always thought was a piece of cake and something that I would easily storm through. Probably engineers walk in with this attitude :P How wrong I was!! the first class with Tarun Sir was a wake up call - the journey would not be as smooth as I had fathomed. Not that I couldn't solve questions, but speed was an issue. I would at times take more than 4-5 minutes to get through a question and this troubled me. Tarun Sir with his wonderful tips helped me plug this problem right from day one. He has a very straightforward and simple approach to solving problems. Adopting this approach helped me get a hang of doing questions in the stipulated time period. GMAT tests how mart you are and that is exactly what we became at PR - Smart! After having solved tough hand outs at class, the real test was a breeze. It's all because of Tarun Sir and his effort that I scored a 51.Verbal was definitely my achilles heel, and the main eason for my joining PR! My first Verbal class was a Sentence Correction session. I was so overwhelmed with the amount of expertise that little sentences demanded that for once I wanted to put an end to the entire GMAT story. I decided not to give up and carried on.As the other question types unfolded-Reading Comprehension and Critical Reasoning, I was totally zonked! Verbal for me was some arcane language that I just couldn't seem to decipher at all. I would have scored pathetically had it not been for my exceptionally talented Verbal teacher. Mansi was extremely patient and co-operative. Her command over the english language was very reassuring. Her explanations were so simple and perfect that slowly I started to get a hold over things. My comfort level with a variety of questions increased leaps and bounds. Mansi woud never hesitate from going out of her way to help a student learn the skills to tackle a problem.Other than the regular classes, Mansi would often call me for extra help sessions where she would sit down with me and help resolve all my doubts. Emails, phone-calls, in person doubt sessions, she would be always ready to help. From a below average score on Verbal to begin with to a 37 on the final day, the journey has not been easy. I would want to give full credit for the same to Mansi and the entire TPR team.GMAT is an intelligent and a wonderful exam and only experts can help you get through it. The Princeton Review has surely been a wonderful experience...an experience that every GMAT taker deserves.
