I started studying Kaplan, because they're a name brand. I bought their books, and studied for a month. I took a practice test and BOMBED.
I was really upset, considering how much effort I put into studying with them. And I'm a computer engineer. I literally took 2 high level math courses every single semester for 4 years at college, it shouldn't have been that bad. But they just didn't prepare you for the GMAT. It was more like Middle-School review.
With TTP, I could see they ask you questions the way the GMAT does, and often the exact same questions with different #s. 15/31 of the problems on the exam you will find nearly word-for-word in TTP. 9/31 they will prepare you incredibly well for, and these are questions where the concepts are combined with no tricks. For those 26/31, you will have a mental model prepared so that you can, on paper, solve the problem without fail.
Really happy with the results, money very well spent.
TTP took me from 31 -> 49Q
