The PowerScore Full-Length GMAT Course

To many students, the GMAT appears to be a random collection of questions and ideas. However, the GMAT is designed around a limited number of mathematical and verbal principles that we examine and explain during the course. The GMAT system we teach is based upon an analysis of the questions that have appeared on the GMAT in the last twenty years, and in class you will learn how to break down those questions and recognize the principles used by the test makers. Our exclusive techniques, methodologies, and strategies, combined with the best instructors, course materials, and student support, will help you exceed your GMAT goals.

30 Lecture Hours for Ultimate Preparation

  • The PowerScore Full-Length GMAT Course consists of 30 lecture hours taught over a period of 5 weeks by one of our highly-trained instructors. Each lesson includes 3 hours of lecture and class discussion.
  • Sessions are highly interactive as we closely review each of the scored sections on the GMAT. We will discuss everything from how to tackle the unusual environment of a Computer Adaptive Test to the strategies most effective in attacking every question type on the exam. This includes recognizing and solving the major Verbal question types and structures, analyzing Quantitative questions with the perfect combination of formulas and logic, and constructing analytical essays that satisfy all of the requirements of the Writing Section. For a full list of topics covered, check out our Full-Length GMAT Syllabus.

Extensive Course Materials

  • Our course contains exclusive and fully-tested techniques and methodologies. At the beginning of each lesson you receive a lesson booklet that is yours to keep. Each booklet contains two sections: a lesson and a corresponding homework. Each lesson is generally divided into two or three topics. Extensive homework with each lesson includes a variety of drills, questions, and analyses focused on the topics discussed in class. Answer keys with explanations are provided as well. The homework is an essential part of the course and provides you with the opportunity to develop and refine your ability to apply our techniques and methodologies.
  • In addition to the course booklets, you will also receive The Official Guide for GMAT Review, which includes real GMAT questions from the makers of the test. Since concepts tend to be repeated from test to test, studying real questions is the best way to recognize the patterns and consistent elements that are certain to appear on test day.

The Best Instructors-99th Percentile

  • The GMAT requires test takers to be proficient in a wide array of areas, including advanced mathematics, the fundamentals of English, and analytical writing. All of our instructors have scored in the 99th percentile on a real GMAT—proof that they fully understand each of these difficult concepts. Since they don’t have to struggle to understand the test itself, they can focus on teaching you how to master the GMAT in the same way that they did.
  • Our instructors are enthusiastic and truly enjoy teaching, and we only hire instructors who can clearly and effectively explain the ideas in our course in a fun and exciting format.

Extensive Online Student Center, including links to 7 Practice Tests

  • Prior to your first lesson, you are given access to our exclusive Online Student Center which contains a variety of valuable pre-course math and verbal primers, as well as our GMAT Question Type References Guides. You will also find general information about business school, GMAT preparation, plus links to seven Computer Adapted Practice Tests.
  • Five PowerScore GMAT Computer Adaptive practice tests can be accessed through the Online Student Center, plus find links to two additional practice tests.

Free Homework Email Assistance

During your course, you can use our free email assistance for any homework questions you might have.

Table Notes
Total Lecture Hours: These figures represent the total amount of lecture time for each course. The figures in this row may also vary by location as some Kaplan and Princeton Review courses may have fewer or greater hours.

Minimum Instructor GMAT Percentile: The Minimum Instructor GMAT Percentile is determined by the results of a GMAC-administered GMAT and corresponding percentile. All PowerScore instructors have taken an actual GMAC-administered GMAT and scored in the 99th percentile. Some other companies, including Kaplan and Princeton Review, allow instructor applicants to come to their offices to take a pre-hiring GMAT. However, since these GMATs are not administered by GMAC, and therefore do not produce national score percentiles, these companies have no minimum national standard.

Live GMAT Instructor Hotline Hours per Week: The PowerScore GMAT Hotline is a unique service offered by PowerScore. All students are entitled to call in and discuss GMAT problems and techniques with one of our instructors during the hours of the hotline.

Total Course Cost: Costs for our competitors may vary by location. The PowerScore GMAT course has a uniform national price of $995.


Cost per Course Hour: These figures are rounded to the nearest whole number. The figures show how much a student pays per hour of lecture time (total course cost divided by total lecture hours) for each company. Lower figures are preferred!
