Pathways and Prompting

How you approach problems has a lot to do with how you’re “wired”. Some people draw pictures, some think in equations, while others just come up with the right answer.This lesson is all about recognizing what type of thinker you are, and building a customized approach to your GMAT preparation. We examine multiple pathways to solve problems, and teach you how to remain focused and alert while solving problems at a blinding speed by leveraging your innate brainpower.


Time Management

More than anything, the GMAT is about time. Time management is one of the most crucial skills for obtaining the best GMAT score, yet most programs give it nothing more than a cursory glance. Apex’s program utilizes a proprietary methodology that manages time for you. Following the process takes the pressure off, alleviates anxiety, and allows you to focus on the problems at hand.


Self Preparation

For every hour you spend in class or with a tutor, you spend three or more studying on your own. Your time is valuable, and getting the most out of your study time is a critical component of your prep. Unfortunately, traditional study skills won’t get you very far with the GMAT. Our curriculum emphasizes your development as a student and a professional by nurturing self-teaching skills that you won’t learn anywhere else.

Quant Fundamentals

The start of a strong quantitative score comes with the mastery and appropriate application of the fundamentals. You can’t build a house without lumber and tools; these are the fundamentals. But, you also need a carpenter – this is the application. This lesson covers topics in arithmetic and mental math, as well as the fundamental approaches to different types of quantitative problems.


As a mathematical discipline, Geometry often ranks second-fiddle in most people’s schooling. As an often forgotten or unfamiliar discipline, Geometry problems are of primary importance in developing a strong Quantitative score. Apex teaches not only the nuts and bolts of tackling geometry problems, but uses this lesson to illustrate the graphical representation of a diverse set of GMAT problems that can be solved using creative methods.


The core competency for the quantitative section of the GMAT, Algebra is involved in well over 50% of all problems. Unfortunately, most quantitatively strong individuals have bad habits when it comes to application, often setting up problems the same way they were taught in primary school. Apex’s Algebra lesson lifts the veil and will change the way you see Algebra. This lesson shows you how to approach problems proactively, and avoid common missteps that the GMAT intentionally exploits.

The Apex Difference

From our free consult and pre-program assessment to off-hours access to your tutor, you’ll feel a profound difference because Apex’s program is adaptable specifically to your strengths and learning style. You’ll be comfortable and relaxed as you learn the ins and outs of the GMAT.

Test Signals

The core of Apex’s philosophy is expounded in this lesson. Here we examine why so many successful people struggle with the GMAT. Learn how to use the test’s structure to your advantage, and even answer many problems using logic rather than examining the problem presented. This core skill will change the way you view the GMAT, and possibly your entire outlook on professional problem solving.

Advanced Math

What separates the good from the truly great Quantitative scores is mastery of esoteric mathematical concepts, from probability to number theory, combinatorics to abstract algebra.

This lesson emphasizes those topics most often seen by GMAT students who aim to excel past the ordinary.

Advanced Quant

The GMAT is about being creative, and there are often multiple ways to solve a seemingly simple problem. In this lesson, we teach a variety of alternative problem solving methods: running scenarios, logical deduction, and mental modeling to name a few. We then help you figure out which works best with your cognitive style, and give you both the tools and structure to succeed on the GMAT.


Integrated Reasoning

The newest section of the GMAT has a lot of people on edge – with good reason. Complex, demanding, and multi-dimensional – it is designed to be un-prepable. Fortunately, we know better; the IR is simply a synthesis of more basic problems, not a truly “new” section. In this lesson, learn how to turn the Integrated Reasoning section to your advantage by recognizing key homomorphisms (structural similarities) between this and the traditional sections while enhancing your overall GMAT performance.


AWA Writing

A source of anxiety for many, this section not only is the least structured on the GMAT, but as the first section it sets the tone for the entire exam. Learn what the exam rewards, and how to express yourself clearly, whether or not you are a native English speaker.

Reading Comp

Do you really know how to read? “Of course” you say, until reading comprehension comes along and calls all that into question. The truth is, we read the same way we listen – passively, picking up relevant details but rarely engaging the material. It’s this natural (and often productive) tendency which the GMAT exploits. Apex’s Reading Comprehension will train you to engage the material and read pro-actively. Instead of scanning the passage and spending time on the questions, we’ll train you how to fully absorb the passage and breeze through the questions.

Admissions committees use GMAT scores as a standardized measure to compare applicants’ academic abilities across different educational backgrounds and get a better understanding of their skills from different areas.

Expert tutors GMAT can help students develop a study plan, identify areas for improvement, and build confidence in their test-taking abilities. Additionally, working with a tutor can help students stay accountable and motivated throughout the preparation process.

How long does it take to prepare for the GMAT?

The amount of time it takes to prepare for the GMAT varies depending on the candidate’s skills and understanding of the exam’s content. In general, most students spend at least two to three months preparing for the exam.

However, some may take longer if they need a more extensive review or have a busy schedule. It’s essential to create a personalized study plan that includes dedicated time for practice tests, review of weak areas, and learning test-taking strategies to achieve the desired score. 

Do you provide study materials and additional practice tests which will help me prepare for the GMAT?

In addition to access to our expert GMAT tutors, here at Apex, we prepare all our study materials in house, and any enrollment with us includes access to our GMAT platform which includes 4 GMAT practice tests as well as 3000+ GMAT questions, to be used for practice throughout the course of the engagement.

Are there any prerequisites or recommended academic background for taking the GMAT exam?

There are no official prerequisites for taking the GMAT exam. However, the exam is designed to assess skills and knowledge that are typically acquired through undergraduate studies, and therefore, it’s recommended to have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent.

Since the test is provided in English, test-takers should have a strong command of the English language. It’s also worth considering that while the GMAT does not require specific academic background or subject specific expertise, the exam does test quantitative and verbal reasoning skills, therefore good understanding of mathematics, English language and reading comprehension would be beneficial. 

Is your teaching approach adapted to the GMAT Focus Edition?

Will the candidates who have taken the GMAT be prioritized when applying for MBA programs?

The new GMAT Focus Edition has been redesigned with input from leading business schools to better align with candidates’ priorities and the changing work landscape.

Should I stop preparing for the GMAT and wait for the GMAT Focus Edition to launch?

No. The two versions of the exam are sufficiently similar for your work on the current version to transfer readily to the GMAT Focus Edition.

Will my “old” GMAT score still be accepted by business schools in 2024 and later?

Should I prepare for the GMAT Focus Edition or the current GMAT, and how can Apex help me make that decision?

The decision to prepare for the GMAT Focus Edition or the current GMAT ultimately depends on your individual circumstances and timeline. If you plan to take the GMAT in the near future, it may be best to focus on preparing for the current exam, as the GMAT Focus Edition is not available yet. However, if you have a bit more time to prepare, it may be worth considering the GMAT Focus Edition, as it may better align with your strengths and test-taking preferences.

At Apex, we can help you make an informed decision about which exam to prepare for based on your individual needs and goals. Our team of experienced tutors can assess your skills and preferences, and provide guidance on the best approach to help you achieve your target score.

Why did GMAC remove Sentence Correction from the GMAT™ Focus Edition, and how can APEX help me prepare for this change?

GMAC removed the Sentence Correction section from the Verbal Reasoning section of the GMAT Focus Edition in order to focus more on higher-order critical reasoning skills and data literacy, which are more relevant and applicable in the business environment.

At Apex, we stay up-to-date with the latest changes to the GMAT and can help you prepare for this change by focusing on the skills that are still being tested in the Verbal Reasoning section, including Critical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension. Our expert tutors can also provide you with personalized guidance and practice to help you improve your overall verbal skills and achieve success on the GMAT Focus Edition or the current GMAT.

Why was the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) removed from the GMAT™ Focus Edition, and how can Apex help me adapt to this change?

The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) was removed from the GMAT Focus Edition as part of the redesign aimed at focusing on higher-order critical reasoning skills and data literacy. Furthermore, many business schools now require essays as part of their application processes, making the AWA less necessary on the GMAT exam. 

At Apex GMAT, we stay up-to-date on any changes in the GMAT exam format and have developed new strategies to help our students adapt to these changes. Our tutors can provide you with the latest information on the GMAT Focus Edition and help you adjust your test-taking approach accordingly.
