THE GMAT EXAM

The best score on the GMAT would be a 6 for the Writing Assessment, an 8 for the Integrated Reasoning section, and a combined 800 for the Quantitative and Verbal sections. However, such scores are not within the reach of most test-takers, nor are they required by schools. Furthermore , candidates for an MSc may focus on only the Quantitative and Verbal sections - and ignore the other sections - as many MSc programs in the Netherlands do not use the AWA or IR scores in their admissions process.
In contrast, students aiming for a top-ten MBA program will need to achieve respectable scores on all four sections of the exam. This can be remarkably difficult to do, and you should take a simulation as early as possible, to make sure you have the time you need to prepare. It may be that you already have a score within range of your target schools. On the other hand, it is not unusual to take 3-6 months to close the gap.
This testing location is near the Sloterdijk train station, in Amsterdam.
Near Utrecht, and with plenty of parking on-site, this testing center is sadly not reachable by train.
Register for the exam via this link to the website of the Graduate Management Admissions Council - makers of the test. On their website, you can find the official practice materials, as well as two free GMAT simulations.
We take care to create a productive training environment for all our students, similar to what you will find at a karate dojo, with an emphasis on practice and refinement of technique. We also keep enrollment selective, to maximize your chance to be in the right class with the right people. That means you may be asked to improve your score to approximately 500 before enrolling in the quant or verbal course. Once you do gain entry, you will find our course schedule to be the most comprehensive of all GMAT courses offered in Amsterdam, comprised of two classes plus one simulation - each week. No other prep course in Amsterdam comes close to this kind of value.
Should you require a tutoring program, rest assured we offer the best value-for-money in the industry: Our record is a 60-point gain in only 3 hours of tutoring. More usually, you can expect 10-12 hours of tutoring to bridge most gaps - for example, the gap between 400 to 500.
We can put together a study plan to reach your target score in optimal time. Please fill in a few details to help us prepare the right plan for your situation. Be sure to mention your prior experience, such as whether you have taken any courses or boot-camps and whether you do better on the quant or the verbal section of the test. You can also get a quick orientation to the GMAT Dojo philosophy of training on our blog, The Secret of Our Success.
