Next Level GMAT Quant Course information and policies
Thank you for registering for a TestCrackers small group course! Please carefully read the information and policies below.
We are excited to help you with your GMAT journey!
1. Our office is located in the second floor of 3284 Adeline Street in Berkeley, CA. We will e-mail you the code for the front door about a week before the class starts. We’re just 3 blocks away from the Ashby BART station.
2. If you're driving, there is usually parking available right in front of the office. It's only 2 hour parking on Saturdays, however, so on Saturdays, please park on a side street 1 or 2 blocks away from the office.
3. Here is the schedule for the May NLQC: May 16, 20, 23, 27, 30 (Saturdays from 3-6pm and Wednesdays from 6:30-9:30pm)
4. Materials will be provided on the first day of class. Materials include the TestCrackers NLQC book and the 2015 Official Guide for Quantitative Review. If you do not already have an Official Guide for GMAT Review (the big Official Guide), please purchase this. It can either be the 13th Edition or the 2015 Edition, as they are identical.
5. If you decide not to attend the course, you may “unregister,” but to get a refund, you must do so 2 full weeks before the course starts, and you must call Yuri to let him know. Otherwise, if you cancel later than that, or if you just don’t attend some or all of the classes, we cannot offer you a refund. This is because we are committed to keeping class sizes small, and once you reserve a spot, we don’t offer that spot to anyone else.
6. If you have not already done so, please e-mail your instructor, Yuri (firstname.lastname@example.org) your GMAT quant and verbal scores, either from an actual GMAT exam or from a practice exam. The practice exam must have been strictly timed, however.
7. The format of the class is a combination of two things: 1: we review the TestCrackers curriculum together, including strategies and concepts for advanced GMAT quant questions; and 2: we review any of your questions that have given you difficulty. Your questions can come from the homework materials provided for in class, from the Official Guide, or from any practice exam you've taken.
8. This class is not intended for folks who struggle with arithmetic, algebra, or geometry. It is an advanced class for people who have already mastered the GMAT quant basics. If you have questions about this, please give Yuri a call.
9. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, this class is very participatory, so, with very few exceptions, you (not the instructor) will be doing all the problems presented in class. Please note that this means we all need to make one another feel comfortable taking risks and asking a lot of questions. So we ask that you be very careful not to judge anyone in the class for how they answer questions or what questions they ask. Advanced GMAT questions can be intimidating–please help make the space one where we all can feel good and comfortable while mastering the GMAT quant section!
Please let me know if you have any questions. And thanks for registering!
