“The PowerScore materials are excellent. Not having taken a standardized test in many years, I find the books extremely helpful in breaking down both the test and topics I have not visited since high school in a thorough but non-intimidating way. Overall, I'm very pleased that I am taking this course.”

Barbara Chow

“The Live Online Full Length GRE Course was an awesome value.  I have used PowerScore in the past for the LSAT and on both occasions I have found that PowerScore’s courses are extremely focused on the logic and tasks of the test.  There are no gimmicks.  No short cuts.  Just pure knowledge explained logically and concisely.”

Ryan Meeks

“I think overall this class is amazing and I am so grateful for the recorded classes.  Not only can I review classes/topics I might have missed, but it allows me to go at my own pace.  Honestly, the instructor is so effective that I would rather be taught by a recording of his class than experience a live class with someone who might not be as good.  Thanks!"
