GRE Verbal Score: 167

‘The class was definitely worth the time and money, and I've recommended it to those preparing for the GRE. I went from having no idea what I was doing to realizing I can do this. The class gave me all the resources-books, practice tests, tips, study techniques-that I needed to do well. My scores all went up, and I'm most proud that my verbal went up 21 points!’

—Jacob C.
Verbal Score: 92nd percentile!

"The GRE class was worth every penny! The math teacher simplified difficult math concepts that I’d struggled with my entire life. Because of that, I raised my math score 200 points, and beat my English score! On the GRE I scored a 660 in English, a 680 in Math and a 5.5 in writing.”

—Jenny K.
LSAT Score: 172

“I took the BYU test prep course for the LSAT. The course provided me with enough practice tests to participate in class and practice on my own. It was a pleasure to learn from such experienced teachers and to benefit from such resources. I was able to score a 172 on the LSAT because of the preparation I received at BYU.”

—Debi H.
DAT Score: 21

“BYU DAT test prep helped me to find where I was weak. This helped me to curb my personal study onto subjects that I didn’t have such a firm grasp on. The results were phenomenal!
Academic: 21
Perceptual: 22”

—Geoffrey C.
MCAT Score: 37

“BYU’s MCAT prep class was definitely helpful. I took the first test and scored around 30, and my final score was 37. It was much cheaper than other prep courses and helped me a lot. Now I am in a top medical school and would certainly do it again if given the choice.”

—Joseph N.
ACT Score: 32

“I took the ACT and got a 25, but since I wanted to get into BYU, I wanted a better score. I participated in the BYU ACT Test Prep class and it really helped. After the class, I got a 32 on the ACT, with a 35 in English. This class was fabulous! I definitely suggest taking the test once, taking the class, and then watching your score improve.”

—Valerie M.
GMAT score: From 560 to 710!

“I took the GMAT and got a 710! I'm definitely going to apply to a couple top-10 schools as well as BYU. I want to say that the first practice test I took was a 560, so the BYU prep class was very beneficial for me and helped me improve my score by 150 points! Please relay my gratitude to the instructors and administrators.”

—Doug T.
