More testimonials from Bell Curves students...

  • When you put them all together, 650+580+570=1810! YEAH! Thank you for putting up with my ridiculous schedule this summer and thanks for the classes and diagnostics and chance to better my grades!

  • Bell Curves personal tutoring not only fit my unpredictable schedule but it gave me the confidence I needed to reach my goal and score a 640 on the GMAT! Thanks to Bell Curves I was just admitted to the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.

  • Well, today was finally the day, and...I SCORED 710!!   I want to thank Bell Curves. Though I continued to use other study books, features of the Bell Curves site definitely made me more prepared. The CAT tests helped show how CAT scoring works, the review section helped me work on problem areas, I would have missed at least one question if I hadn't memorized the powers suggested. I could go on and on about how it's just a great site altogether.   I especially want to thank you Joe. You were always willing to help me with the many questions that I sent, you helped me find questions to target my problem areas, and you were very encouraging at the times when I couldn't hide my stress. I truly thank you. I could almost swear that at a stressful time during the test, I heard your voice telling me I'd be fine.

  • Before taking a Bell Curves GMAT preparation course, I took the GMAT and received a score of 430. To get into the school I was interested in, I needed to raise my score at least 70 points. After taking the Bell Curves GMAT prep course, I raised my GMAT score 100 points to a 530. Thanks to this course, I have been accepted into Georgia Southern's MBA program where I will be attending classes this fall. The instructor was available and helped focus on my areas of weakness. The online materials provided with the Bell Curves prep course were extremely effective, since they were very similar to the questions on the GMAT itself.

  • Thank you so much! I feel like I have a game plan. The ten pages I did on perms and combs from the Quant manual have laid out quite a simple and clear foundation, so I look forward to my GMAT challenge!

  • The GMAT is the ultimate hurdle to b-school, but Bell Curves provides a solid and customizable blueprint that makes the hurdle significantly less daunting. Bell Curves provides whatever you need, and they have a talented team of standardized testing experts that will diagnose your learning style to give you the customized instruction needed to beat the GMAT. My score improved by 150 points!

  • Dreams do come true! Despite the ease with which I typed that statement - please KNOW that the achievement of your dreams does not come without a lot of hard work. In comes Bell Curves: I have had an extremely positive experience with Akil and the rest of the Bell Curves team. I feel as though they had a genuine interest in my success and challenged me relentlessly. What especially stood out about Bell Curves is the team's emphasis on thinking conceptually about the GMAT and mastering your timing. I am blessed with the "problem" of deciding between Wharton, Chicago, Tuck and Fuqua.

  • Thank you so much for your visit today. Your presentation made it evident that our school needs to plan more effectively to incorporate strategies and awareness around the SAT and ACT. The helpful test taking strategies made our students realize they can achieve a higher score simply through familiarity with the test structure and scoring practices.  This workshop helped reduce test anxiety and gave students the information they need to strategically plan and set goals for attending the college of their choice. Your participation with our staff and students helped solidify the college going culture that we are trying to build at our school!

  • Studying for the GMAT was a long and often a trying journey for me. However, being on the other end of the process now, I see why people say that the key to success is consistency and perseverance. One-on-one tutoring helped me to hone in on gaps in both my knowledge and test taking strategy. Being able to identify and fill in these gaps gave me the confidence to achieve my goal score.

  • I began the Virtual GMAT Course with Yanique this evening. She is WONDERFUL!!! Thank you for the opportunity to work with such a gifted and patient instructor.

  • I spent a small fortune with the so called top GMAT prep companies on the street but they all fell short on helping me make any improvements on my score.  Then MLT MBA Prep staff recommended a tutor from Bell Curves.  Nothing quite comes close to the level of individual attention and improvement I received from my private tutoring sessions.  My score improved 150 points in just a few sessions. Unlike other companies, my tutor was able to hone in on my issues and quickly fix them.  He went above and beyond to help me achieve my target score.  Additionally, the Bell Curves books not only teach you the concepts you need to know but they show you the techniques to beat the exam. If you are shooting for a top GMAT score, Bell Curves is the bar none the best.

  • Guys,      No longer shall the beast that is the SAT preside over my Saturdays. The beast is dead. As you know, I got: Critical Reading - 800, Math - 770, Writing - 800 (MC: 80, Essay: 11) 2370. That's right, College Board. Suck on that! Thanks a lot for everything. I couldn't have done it without you.

  • The combination of peer pressure and what I felt were terribly low SAT scores made the difficult college admissions process worrisome for me. Luckily, I was introduced to the Bell Curves team and my worries quickly vanished. Comfort quickly replaced anxiety as I learned innovative strategies and techniques. As a result, my score jumped 230 points! Today I can proudly say that I attend George Washington University and would definitely recommend Bell Curves to any student looking to conquer the SAT!

  • Hello, this is your student from last summer, Jennifer, from Columbia University's Mellon Mays program. I'm just writing to let you know that, after getting accepted to 5 English PhD programs for Latina/o literature and spending about a month torturing myself over a decision, I finally chose to go to the University of Michigan this fall on the Rackham Merit Fellowship. Taking that GRE prep course with Bell Curves was not only ridiculous amounts of fun, but also totally stress- and anxiety-reducing and I felt totally prepared walking into the exam. Seriously, thanks for all your help -- and I hope next year's Columbia Mellons have at least half as much fun as we did. :)

  • The intimate classroom environment facilitated networking and support among all involved. At a cost much less than that of many other GMAT prep companies, Bell Curves easily trumps other companies in value. I am extremely thankful for all that the Bell Curves staff has done to help me attain my goal of an MBA from a top institution!

  • After taking a full GMAT course + private tutoring with Hany ElDiwany in the fall, I have nothing but great things to say about Hany's teaching/tutoring skills!!! He's very patient, quickly targets weak areas and follows up with various on the spot drills and questions to shore up those weaknesses. Hany is great at creating his own questions and strengthening & weakening retired OG quant questions to reach someone at the level they're at. Very unique skill set I must say. In addition, Hany was always available to answer questions via email 24/7 ( even while he was on vacation). Overall I can't ask for better service than that. Great experience all around!!

  • I found out this week that I've been ACCEPTED into Wharton's MBA program for Executives!!! I feel like Bell Curves had a big hand in helping me prepare adequately for the GMAT. Thanks again.

  • I had pretty much given up on the GMAT after doing a full-length course and a few hours of tutoring with 2 other test prep companies. After bombing the GMAT my first time (500, Quant 27, < 20%), a tutor from one of the “top” test prep companies reasoned that math was not my forte and that I should focus solely on the verbal to increase my score. I soon realized that he was a waste of my time and money because not only was his advice crazy, we had no formal meeting place, so tutoring sessions at Starbucks weren’t really effective. Fast-forward to me walking into the BC office a total anxious wreck. I purchased tutoring hours and began working with Ajani, who, let me just say, is nothing short of amazing! After reviewing my work from just 1 practice test, he was able to identify my weaknesses and repeated mistakes. Ajani was super patient with me and never made me feel like the idiot I was making myself out to me. Even with my stupidest mistakes, he would find a takeaway point from it…AMAZING! The BC books and online material were also extremely helpful. From the books I learned new, but really simple and reliable ways to attack each question type. The online CAT quizzes and exams were the most realistic practice questions that I’ve seen. On my actual exam, for some of the questions, I was thinking, “oh…this is just like such and such question from the BC material.”One of my biggest hurdles was my fear of the exam; working with Ajani and practicing on my own with the BC material really helped overcome this fear and I walked into the exam feeling confident…for the most part. All in all, my BC experience was beyond worthwhile. I regret not starting my prep with them initially. I truly believe that I would not have been able to conquer the GMAT without them. Final score – 650…got the horrendous quant raw score up to 42.

  • I am happy to report that I am officially done with the GMAT, after increasing my overall score by 150 points! I am extremely thankful for my teacher Andrew and the entire Bell Curves team for the support. Before taking a Bell Curves course I completed a popular GMAT prep in person class, but I did not receive the results I was hoping for. Recognizing that I needed to approach my exam preparation differently I decided to enroll in a Bell Curves online course. This weekly course provided me with the necessary structure to succeed on the exam and taking the course online gave me greater flexibility with my schedule. The statistics provided after every practice exam and set of practice questions were extremely helpful, these results helped me craft a custom approach that helped me achieve such great improvements. My teacher, Andrew was also very accessible and great at answering my questions as well as helping me develop my strategy. Finally, the Bell Curves' approach, mastering one subject at a time helped me tremendously. I highly recommend Bell Curves to all those preparing for the GMAT!

  • It's all over!!! I got a 750!!! Sooooo happy! Couldn’t have done it without all of your help. The class was amazing...your advice, insight and feedback were priceless. The best money I’ve ever spent. Thanks so much!
