GMAT Preparation Materials

Out of the numerous ways to prepare for the GMAT, these are the most popular resources our applicants have used.

GMAT Review Courses and Private Tutoring

You may feel a classroom environment with in-person instructor interaction is helpful for recalling formulas you haven’t used in a number of years, understanding the types of questions asked on the test, and offering tips and tricks that will help you prepare for test day. Or you may prefer online prep classes or private tutoring.

Many successful applicants have told us they used the following books to prepare for the GMAT:
