Overall Rating:

 

Pros

  • Lively lessons: MGMAT makes a significant effort to make sure their lessons are engaging and fun, including using puppets.
  • Can purchase in parts: This is the highest ranked on demand course that you can purchase in parts. For example, if you only need help with one section (quant or verbal) you can purchase just that section.
  • Adaptive and Interactive lessons: The lessons are also adaptive. It’s like the chose your own adventure of on demand courses, where you get to review what problems and topics you want to.

Cons

  • Extremely Challenging: The MGMAT quant problems are notoriously difficult, with many of them more difficult than the questions you will see on the actual test. As a result this course may be not suited to those starting from scratch or with target scores below 700s.
  • Brand new: MGMAT just came out with this product in June, so unlike other courses that have been out longer, they haven’t had as much time to work out the kinks and adapt to student feedback.
