A New Approach to GRE/GMAT Test Prep

Twainstein founder Avi Lidgi streamlined the traditional approach to standardized test prep by developing a unique 80/50 method that focuses on identifying high-point value questions instead of all questions.

The trick to GMAT/GRE success is not how do I master all the concepts tested; the trick—and what we teach—is how little math do I need, and how few words/grammar rules do I need to memorize, in order to still ace the exam? Our lean curriculum emphasizes strategies, common shortcuts and built-in patterns within the exam to allow students to sidestep much of the content mastery and just answer the questions correctly…and quickly. What cardinal sins do most personal statements commit that seal their fate in the eyes of admissions committees? What could have been removed/added/revised or reworded that would turn an otherwise rejected or waitlisted response to an outright ACCEPTED? What words or phrases were used in describing past job descriptions or leadership accolades that will create an incongruity in the “line” of your story, forever tarnishing an otherwise stellar package? These landmines take a trained eye to suss out, and yet any one of them could easily offset a sterling GMAT/GRE score and derail your chances for admission.

Classes

During our six week course you will not only be given every study single study resource—practice questions, online adaptive exams, books—you will need, but also a carefully laid out syllabus that takes the guess work out of each day’s assignments. Twainstein does not teach success in math, nor we do we hand out dictionaries to memorize. Instead, we teach success on the GRE/GMAT. Are you studying correctly?

Resources

By mastering a few concepts and learning a few tried-and-true strategies, your score will rise higher and faster than attempts to retrain yourself in math.

*After the third practice exam is taken during the fourth week of class, students will sit down individually with their instructor to evaluate areas of weakness on all three exams. This is done to ensure that from the third practice exam to the sixth, score increases start trending toward a student’s target score. No other test prep company offers private one-on-one instruction with their class offerings (a $250 value).
