Customer ReviewsSee All
I’ve been listening to these podcasts while simultaneously going through the DominateTestPrep course for the GMAT. These podcasts shed light on things to consider for the test that are beyond the “x’s and o’s” of the test material. Nutrition, motivation, tips and tricks, and so much more. This channel greatly complements the study material.
Perfect Resource for Aspiring Grad Students
Unfortunately, I came across this podcast AFTER I had endured the process of applying to graduate schools. I say unfortunately -- because the episodes are so spot-on, and I wish I could have listened to them during the process. I particularly enjoyed "Is Harvard Really Worth It?" as someone who was just admitted to Harvard, and a group of other schools.
The host also seems extremely knowledgeable about not just test prep, but the entire grad school application process. I look forward to listening to future episodes, and will be referring my friends who apply to grad school to this resource.
If your looking for guidance and encouragement as it pertains to test prep, this is the perfect resource. This podcast acts as a signpost to keep you on the right path while preparing for your test. There are many elements to test prep from strategy, to psychology, to the disciplines you implement to help ensure success. This is a comprehensive resource to help guide through those elements.
